GSY Video PS4 Xbox One Switch PC

Developer Pixpil still has a lot to prove in the gameplay department as the Eastward demo doesn't really feature anything too original, but we love its look and are curious to see more. No release date has been announced yet and it should be "soon".

This game is very interesting, it's like a mixture of Earthbound with The Legend of Zelda. The characters are exquisite and funny, with the two main characters feeling like Joel and Ellie sometimes. They each have abilities of their own and you can play with both together as a group or separated. You need to switch between them to progress through various puzzles and enemies.

The man can use more physical weapons like a frying pan, a shotgun and bombs. While the little girl can use what looks like magic from a distance to destroy certain objects, as well as freezing enemies for a few seconds. Some enemies can only be hit by freezing them first, otherwise they hide below the ground and you can't hit them. The enemies are very unique and interesting, you even fight a boss that requires some thinking to best it.

The game also throws some things at you when you're not expecting. The puzzles, combat and secrets are entertaining. Some of the secrets are so well hidden and crazy that you get that very surprised look when you try something stupid and it works. It's great.

    Seth @KORNdog: hah you mentioned tlou II, i cancelled my pre-order because i'm too hyped for next-gen now, but when the hype kicks in i'll buy it at release most likely. (4 Days ago)

  • Seth

    Seth PC for me is best available platform, thanks to the huge games library and 60fps for all games.But still getting a new console for first parties... (4 Days ago)

  • Seth

    Seth sry my mistake, ye i wanted to say that they are huge fans of first parties and ready to move on and wait ages for eventual pc port. (4 Days ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog there are people out there who are going to wait for PS5 before playing last of us 2. but even that sort of wait sounds far too excruciating to me. (4 Days ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @Seth: i mean, it's a viable option, but if you were a big fan of sony exclusives to begin with you'd need to have an insane amount of patience to wait 3 years to play it on PC (4 Days ago)

  • Seth

    Seth @KORNdog: yeah i don't see this happen anytime soon. it's why i find funny some people suddenly say ''i'm done, after 25 years with ps, moving to pc''. (4 Days ago)
