Way of the Passive Fist—an upcoming brawler from Household Games—is rad for a number of reasons. It’s a stylish, 16-bit-esque beat-em up that emphasizes defensive moves over the usual punches and kicks. Your character, the Wanderer, uses blocks, feints, and dodges to do damage against the enemy, transferring their energy against them. Successful parries build up a meter, when that meter is full, you can unleash a massive punch.
