The Week Ahead!

After a week where everyone went insane of the majesty and excellence of The Phantom Pain (And I decided to buy Mad Max instead because I can. Review coming soon!) the coming week only has one game of interest releasing, and that game is only a port: Tearaway Unfolded keeps the same story and setting of the original PS VITA version, but remaps and tweaks all of the mechanics, with touchscreen controls on the VITA version being remapped to the Dualshock 4 touchpad. Any sucker who bought the Playstation Camera can also use that to draw in-game, and the Playstation App can also be used to input drawings and take pictures of your real-world surroundings for use in game - ever wanted to have your scab collection (I won't judge) as the backdrop for a game? Go ahead!

The touchpad can also be used to create strong gusts of wind that blows away enemies and reveals platoforms, and the lightbar on the front of the controller is used to light up dark areas. Lastly, you can tilt, rotate and pitch the controller to control the in-game platforms that the main character, Atoi, navigates, all in 1080p, 60fps. It launches worldwide on Tuesday and has garnered many positive reviews, with Push Square (A website I write for) giving it a 9/10 and GameSpot giving it an 8, with the Metacritic aggregate being 82/100.

Will you be buying Tearaway Unfolded? Tell us in the comments!
