New Game Releases: September 3rd-9th, 2015

Tearaway Unfolded (1)

From Mario Golf and Excitebike’s appearance on the Wii U to Leo’s Fortune and Tearaway Unfolded’s jump from portable to console, this week’s schedule of new game releases offers quite a few familiar faces. If it’s new experiences you’re seeking out, you better look on the Xbox One or PC, with Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime extending a large dose of creativity, as co-op partners (or a single player with an AI pet) protect a giant pink spaceship from a non-stop bombardment of threats.

Robert’s Pick: If you want to see a creative, engaging title stumble at retail, give it to the Sony PR team- they’ll be sure it won’t receive much attention and quickly plummet in price. Snark aside, that was the fate of poor Tearaway, one of the most creative title’s to grace PS Vita screens. Thankfully, Media Molecule’s paper-craft based title is getting a second chance on the PlayStation 4 with Tearaway Unfolded. This time out the developers are sidestepping SCEA, allowing an in-game GIF creation suite to do the marketing for them. Smart move.

  1. Sony’s handling of the game was TEARABLE.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  2. I said $10 for the original Tearaway, but buying a remakes at 4x the price isn’t too enticing. Sony should throw us a bone for being loyal.

  3. I’d love to see Bowl Bound College Football deliver the good since EA doesn’t make NCAA games anymore.

  4. Is that Mario Golf from the N64?

  5. From the looks of the P S Blog, Sony has no idea what they are doing. They make constant mistakes, don’t always create sales grids, and don’t respond to criticism..

  6. Gunman Clive HD Collection is the only worthwhile thing to hit Wii U in a few weeks. I’ll be grabbing it.

  7. Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader for $30. All the 5th graders I know are smart enough to avoid that.

  8. The game title of the week that best describes my sex life: impulse Revolution

  9. Mine would be Rubber and Lead. Just kidding.

  10. Honestly I’m excited to finally play Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime!
