Behold: Tornado. What's the game about? Does it really matter? From what we can stomach gather, this ludicrous video – complete with a crappy rip-off of Danny Elfman's Pee-Wee's Big Adventure score – shows a game that looks like a Katamari Damacy clone, is played by swirling th...

In fact, Tornado hasn't even released in Japan yet. It was originally scheduled to c...

How better to get visitors to your museum than to create a massive man-made tornado in the middle of the building?
