Devs Play season two has over five hours of game makers chatting

Whether it's games, movies, books, whatever, I love listening to creators talk about their craft. It can be enthralling to hear how the creative process differs between not only mediums, but individuals. One video series I'm fond of is Devs...

GameBarcodes distill games down frame by frame

A couple weeks ago an imgur page was floating around the Internet showing various films with each frame reduced to its average color and represented as a single vertical line in what turn out to be often vibrant barcodes. This is not exactl...

This Japanese Tearway PS4 advert is fascinating

I have a real soft spot in my heart for Japanese gaming advertisements. I love the conviction, the wackiness, and the passion-filled songs that just don't seem to have made it to advertising back here in the Western world.  Today, we w...

 
Tearaway PS4 port
Tearaway was the zenith of the PlayStation Vita. While many fine games have hit the platform since, few have been exclusive and original, and none used every inch of the Vita's additional capabilities to as good effect. That ...   read

Media Molecule reveals Tearaway Unfolded: Special Edition

It has yet to be seen if the PS4 Tearaway Unfolded remake is necessary, but the original on Vita was pretty damn amazing. That's why this new Special Edition package is so tempting -- it includes a doll of the main male protagonist of ...

Tearaway PS4 has a companion app

Tearaway was one of the few games to take complete advantage of the Vita's extra features, smartly tying all of them into the narrative. Thus, porting it to the PlayStation 4 feels a bit odd. Apparently one way Tearaway Unfolded will bridg...

Tearaway PS4 coming September 8, has ridiculous box art

Tearaway Unfolded is the PS4 port of the 2013 Vita game that was possibly my game of the year (I also gave it a 10/10, because it is excellent). The PlayStation Blog has confirmed some finer points about the release, including a September 8...

Media Molecule clarifies that Tearaway PS4 is mostly the same

Recently we learned that Media Molecule was bringing Tearaway -- one of my personal favorite Vita games -- to the PS4. They very briefly mentioned that it was similar to the first game at their gamescom conference, but now after that event ...

Any excuse to talk about Tearaway is a great thing

Tearaway is a fantastic amazing title you PlayStation Vita owners should already have in your collection. And I will take any excuse to sing the praises of this game, even when there's some silly downloadable content released for it. In thi...

Last of Us wins most BAFTA awards, Tearaway gets some love

The Last of Us cashed in on five of its nine 2014 BAFTA nominations, including winning Best Game and Best Story. Not quite 10 awards at D.I.C.E., but good. Tearaway overtook it for Artistic Achievement while also winning in the Family and M...

 
Making Tearaway
Earlier this month, I caught up with Media Molecule's Rex Crowle, lead creator on one of my favorite games of last year, Tearaway. My main goal was simple: to thank him for such a fantastic Vita game. But we ended up chatting...   read

You bought Tearaway, right? What am I saying? Of course you did. It was an exemplary new IP like we always ask for, a triumph of imagination and creativity, a boon to the Vita, and as low as $20. There would be little reason not to. Well, ...

Tearaway gets a promotional faux-children's show in Japan

A lot of people assume that anything cute and weird is bound to sell well in Japan. Like most generalizations about cultural preferences, that assumption doesn't always hold up. Despite being arguably the cutest, weirdest series Sony has p...

Review: Tearaway

Can this TV spot help people not forget about Tearaway?

"Probably not," feels like the realist answer; "I hope so," the optimist answer. LittleBigPlanet developer MediaMolecule's Tearaway is so good. The problem is that it's on the Vita and up against the likes of Super Mario 3D World, Legend o...
