I must admit, I was never sold on Tearaway. Even though the game received stellar reviews on the PS Vita and early play sessions for the PS4 title have been all positive, the game never really caught my attention. It’s weird because Tearaway seems to be a game that I would be drawn to because it just oozes with style and seems like a title that I would want to play. Alas my friends, I have never played the game nor did I plan on playing it until now. I just got done watching the new Tearaway Companion App trailer and I must admit, I am impressed. Being a father of 5, I am always looking for new and interesting games for the family and this one seems like it’s going to fit the bill perfectly. The thought of my son or daughter walking through the games world while I draw new and interesting things on my tablet and then sharing them while they play is mind blowing.
One of my most anticipated titles for 2015 is Battleborn. The game looks too crazy NOT to be good and I have high hopes for this game. Since the title is being headed up by the same people who have done Borderlands, I think my expectations are overly high for Battleborn and I pray that the development team delivers.
Check out some concept art for Oscar Mike and let us know what you think. Battleborn is headed to PS4 and XBOX One later this year.

Awesome stuff indeed. Which side will you choose?
The PS4 standout indie title Rocket League has now been downloaded over 5 million times. That’s a staggering number and one that shouldn’t be ignored. We know that the game is currently free via PS Plus, but the title is quite good and we suggest players give it a download.
HUGE props to the development team.
