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 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 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...

Tearaway review!  photo

Review: Tearaway

I was sitting in a doctor’s office waiting room, lost in my Vita because doctors are terrible timekeepers. 2:00 pm means 2:00 pm, life-saving scumbag. Suddenly, I was looking at dimly lit tartan chairs and an old, wrinkled man with a ...

Tearaway TV spot photo

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...
