PERSONALIZE YOUR HANDHELD WITH POKEMON DECALS
If you weren’t able to snag one of the snazzy Pokemon X/Y 3DS XLs, it’s okay. Pixel Boy has an affordable solution for you that will make your 3DS or 3DS XL look just as eye-catching as one of those limited editions.
Each decal is available in 18 different colors, giving you a fully customized look for your handheld. They also cost only $8.90, which is a hell of a lot cheaper than a brand new 3DS XL.
Pokemon decals can be purchased on Etsy.

OTL GAMING HOLIDAY GUIDE 2013—OUR PICKS (PART 3)
2013 has been an incredible year for video games and a milestone year for hardware with the release of two next-gen systems.
Shopping for the gamer in your life is never an easy task so we’ve put together a list of our top games we’ve played this year. You’ll notice the list is lacking next-gen titles, that’s because we haven’t played any yet.
Part three of our picks for 2013:
Saints Row IV (available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC)
The Saints return for their most over-the-top adventure yet. Aliens have invaded earth and as President of the United States and leader of the Saints, it’s up to show them you that nobody messes with ‘Merica. Perfect for the person who appreciates crude humor and is a fan of sandbox games. Read our review and Purchase it here.
State of Decay (available for Xbox 360 and PC)
The world’s gone to hell again, and as usual zombies are to blame. State of Decay is an open world survival game from Undead Labs that puts you right in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. In order to fight the oncoming horde you’ll have to build a base, scavenge for supplies, clear out zombie infestations, and most importantly, survive! Read our review and Purchase it on XBLA or Steam.
Tomb Raider (available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC)
In this franchise reboot, Crystal Dynamics puts players in the role of Lara Croft during her first archaeological adventure. Her outing begins innocently enough until she and her team are shipwrecked on a cursed island, quickly transforming their trip from a routine expedition to a fight for their lives. The reboot is raw, visceral, and infused with an amount of realism that provides plenty of cringe-worthy moments. As one of our favorite games this year, Tomb Raider is a must play for those familiar with the series or looking for a thrilling action-adventure game. Read our impressions and Purchase it here.
The Wolf Among Us (available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, iOS, and PS Vita)
Enter the grim world of fairy tales in the latest episodic adventure title from Telltale Games. You play as Bigby, the Big Bad Wolf turned Sheriff of Fabletown, who is in charge of protecting the fairy tale citizens from outsiders, and more importantly, from themselves. Read our review and Purchase it here.
