Way of the Passive Fist from Household Games is the anti-brawler, brawler. Sit down for this next part – there is no button to punch or kick. On the planet of Eiectus, you play The Wanderer, a man who chooses to deflect blows and wear his enemies down to defeat them. This is important because being exhausted on this dangerous planet can be a quick way to die.
You are not completely unarmed. After enough energy has been collected from parrying punches, you can use your bionic arm to bring the pain to any enemy who cannot take a hint. It cannot be used often, but it sounds like it will be a devastating attack.
According to the developer, the art style is inspired by 90s cartoons, and that sounds awesome to us. The whole trailer has a Heavy Metal meets David Carradine in space Kung Fu feeling, and we look forward to seeing more of this game when it is first playable at PlayStation Experience this weekend.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
