Ride papercraft pigs in this cute Tearaway trailer

6:00 PM on 08.20.2013 // Steven Hansen

Wild pigs couldn't tear me away from Tearaway

Along with Puppeteer, Tearaway has to be the most delightful-looking game of the year. I'm torn as to which looks cuter. It might even be a legitimate contender for many game of the year awards. Hamza couldn't sing its praises enough when he previewed it before E3 -- it was his favorite game to play in a Sony showing that included The Last of Us, among other great titles.

It feels a little like Wind Waker by way of Media Molecule. It even manages to use the Vita's alternative controls -- touch, tilt -- in a big way without feeling gimmicky or unnecessary. It's a bundle of originality, from its papercraft aesthetic down to the neat gameplay elements.

Plus, you can ride pigs! Good lucking tearing me away from Tearaway when it comes to Vita this November.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

AARRGGGHHHH!!!, GODDAMIT!, fucking SOMA has crashed 3 fucking times in a row and I always lose ~20 minutes of playtime!, playing the same section over and over kinda ruins the tension! >.<'

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

Spooky yet totally true gaming fact: the bushes and the clouds in Super Mario Bros are the same exact shape. #Spooky

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.
