We sing the praises of Media Molecule's excellent Vita game Tearaway, and look back at the year that was.

In the first segment, host Matt Helgeson and Dan Ryckert discuss Media Molecule's magical new platformer, which is perhaps the best Vita game to date. There's a lot to talk about, and it's an experience that should not be missed. For more, read our review of the game.

Next up, we welcome GI news editor Mike Futter to the studio. He's in visiting from New Jersey this week, so we took the opportunity to get him on the show to analyze some of 2013's biggest news stories, including the shuttering of LucasArts and THQ and Microsoft's Adam Orth controversy.
