Tearaway's Paper Trail Will Be Discovered On October 22
Published on Tuesday, 09 April 2013 11:04
Tearaway is an artistic adventure game for the PS Vita by Media Molecule where you play as the messenger iota, or atoi, and you explore the environments while they hope to successfully deliver their message to you. This message is the discovery of the enjoyment and appreciation of the artistic presence that is illustrated throughout the paperesque world that is before you. You are also able to interact with the game by “exerting your godly influence on it,” which gives you the ability to take pictures of patterns that can then be applied to characters within the game, you can use the rear-touch panel to see your fingertips appear in the game, and even blow on the Vita to quicken the pace of leaves and other objects in the wind. You will even have a choice of who you wish to portray on the cover with a reversible double sided inlay. Tearaway will arrive on PS Vita on October 22nd.

Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
