Just beat this for the first time. Reminds me of the golden age of gaming. I have felt like this in a long fricking time and now I'm starting to get pissed at how dirty it was treated.
This is the kind of game that should be seeing success and selling millions, not the slop that currently does. This hobby has been invaded by way too many people who don't care about actual video games and scumbag suits who just want to milk them and keep bringing in more. If a game doesn't manage that they go out back and shoot it. Frick.

      They just shadowdropped it, threw it out there and somehow expected it to do probably some obscene number. The game feels like it was this close to getting cancelled throughout development and when it wasn't microsoft just tossed it out to be done with it. Absolutely baffling, especially when they go on to say these are the types of games they should be making and then that glorified PR person masquerading as the head of Xbox now has no goddamn clue.

      Microsoft is moronic and I'm saying this as someone who had every Xbox console so far. This was the last straw for me, they showed their true colors.
      Every single game except Forza Horizon and Sea of Thieves is a net loss for Xbox since 2013. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. They pumped insane money into various shitty titles and they barely sold anything because the results were either bad or mediocre and the genres they are competing in not interest the casual or the hardcore. Hifi Rush was their sole critical success story aside from Horizon since 2013.
      And they killed it because it didn't make money.
      Phil. Bro. Nothing you did in the last 10 years made money. You made chump change with some of the titles. That is it. All while you made Xbox irrelevant and this will be your last gen as an independent platform.

      I hope they rot in hell.

        They killed it before it even released because they were that sure it would be a waste of money.
        All they could do afterward was smile and wave in the midst of its success because they already knew the studio was going away, and they were going to look like (even bigger) idiots once the announcement could go out.
        They legitimately can not recognize a quality game, which is absolutely pathetic for people trying to run a company that helps get them made.

          Friendly reminder that Lies of P was a commercial success even when it was day one on Gamepass and had no marketing sans a demo dropped during one of Steam's indie fests, on top of having the huge handicap of being another Souls clone on a market so oversaturated with them it makes the Hero Shooters market blush. Both games had Denuvo too.

          Maybe people simply didn't like Hi-Fi Rush and the massive praise comes from hipsters and contrarians, extremely loud but still a minority?

            Once again outing and making yourself obvious you homosexual, but this is the only decent point you've ever made in these thread. Lies of P ultimately still gets a boost for being a souls game since many "notable" soulslike not made by fromsoft are mediocre games. Even the new Lords of the Fallen and fricking Mortal Shell reached a million sales. Couple that with the fact that they're all multiplatform on the ps4/ps5 and that Lies of P had decent word of mouth solely off the fact that it was perhaps the best soulslike not made by fromsoft. The soulslike market barely has any good games, and with the bloodborne gays craving to scratch their itch, it reaching a million sales isn't a surprise.

            I remember a dialogue with Peppermint where she says Korsica is cute or something like that. So it's not entirely out of nowhere.

            I really wonder what percentage of GamePass subscribers would stop being subscribed in they didn't have first-party xbox games day 1, especially given the common notion that most xbox games aren't that incredible. I feel like they would have made more money with a delay to gamepass.

            That was probably their plan, at some point. But their problem is that, even with current prices, they have been stuck at 20-30 million subscribers for years. And who knows how many of these users did the Xbox Live Gold thing and are only paying $2 per month. Or how many keep making new accounts and are only paying $1 per month.
            Game Pass was a massive success initially, until it stopped growing all of a sudden.

        I 100% guarantee they are not happy with Starfield sales and that it will continue into the future. Unlike its predecessors it will enjoy no resurgence in player count or subsequent sales, because it is a genuinely terrible game to anyone that has an even tangential interest in open-world RPGs, and because it is made in such a roughshod way that even dedicated modders can't put the pieces back together to make a compelling and interesting title.

        The one (1) reason that Tango was killed was literally name recognition and lack of sales in totality. It doesn't matter how successful Hi-Fi Rush was (though by all accounts it reportedly did middlingly well), unless it had otherworldly sales it was toast once Xbox went breasts up and MS saw the writing on the wall. Tango was just collateral damage, MS like most larger publishers is just looking to stop blood loss and unfortunately made the tourniquet a bit too tight in this instance.

    What I assume happened is this: a ton of people played it, but these people were already subscribed to Game Pass. The game, while technically popular and successful, failed to attract new GP users. So, ACTUALLY, it didn't make money.

      It was literally announced and released on the same day so most people wouldn't have even had the chance to know or learn about it whereas on gamepass it would've just shown up right there for "free" to try out and play. Just another reason why gamepass is unsustainable and cannibalizes success.

    I really wonder what percentage of GamePass subscribers would stop being subscribed in they didn't have first-party xbox games day 1, especially given the common notion that most xbox games aren't that incredible. I feel like they would have made more money with a delay to gamepass.

        They could have said "No" when asked to make woke shit. Nobody is even holding a gun to their head, and standing on principles is generally regarded as plus. They have very little potential cost associated with refusing to make woke garbage.

        They want to make it lame, and gay. They not only live for it, but they despise you for not wanting it. You don't know these people, they hate you, and everything you stand for. They want to see you driven out into the streets, and butchered.

            So can you think of a single time a woke game was well remotely well received that wasn't a investment firm purchasing a existing franchise, and making the characters lame, and gay?

            You're saying it earns billions, but it seems more catered towards courting investment capital at the expense of the end consumer. I grant you that they gain ESG by putting a black woman with a afro on the cover, and they get money from a billionaire who wants to influence society.

                Videogame-specific companies losing half their value IS, in fact, a sign that videogame-specific companies are not doing well currently. If you didn't want to deal with this you shouldn't have mentioned this at all.

                It would have made sense for you to argue that there's no way to know if the loss in value can be traced to 'woke' content but seeing as that thought didn't even remotely cross your mind then the discussion is kind of over at this point.

                Hollywood as an "art institution" has died because it's been heavily infiltrated by hedge funds and the like which don't care about creativity but about completing a checklist which is kind of the point of the discussion.
                I don't see how the way Hollyweird runs things is relevant to the videogame industry or anything that has been said in the chain of posts you are replying to, though.

                Hollywood is ran in a sort-of monopolistic way anyways so I'm not sure you are correct about what you said either way. Not only it doesn't make sense for big producers to do that for a number of reasons but on top of it the information of who produced what movies/shows is freely available so you can easily check that it's usually the same companies producing. There are exceptions to this of course and some companies may come and go because they truly get bankrupt from producing a flop but that's just how it goes when a business goes wrong to begin with.
                For instance you posted something about Men in Black but Men in Black was produced by Columbia Pictures and Columbia Pictures has not gone bankrupt.

                Closing a studio isn't bankruptcy.
                Microsoft didn't close their studio because hifirush was a flop.

                They shuttered it because even if hifi rush was a success, it just an AA title that can't specifically get milked over the buy in.

                Everything else tango was pitching was 6 years or more away. Microsoft would rather buy studios with games already red hot in the forge and ready to launch in a year or two minimum. They don't care about funding new projects that are closer to a decade away and not guaranteed to make returns in upcoming quarters.

                They get to keep the IPs anyways after shuttering the studio.

                You opened by mentioning comedy vis a vis obnoxious humor. Someone responded with an assumption that you like bad humor, but you responded that in fact you hate all attempts at humor and protagonists speaking. It's an incongruent view, attempts at humor have nothing to do with a protagonist speaking. There are many games that have a silent protagonist that you (assumedly) would hate, and there are many games with speaking protagonists that don't attempt humor. It makes no sense for this statement to follow from your first.

Were you ever subject to sexual assault, even if only minor? These kinds of things can have traumatic effects on the brain development of a child so it may explain your obsession.

      Marvel dialogue is shit because it's out of place and constantly undermining serious moments in more realistic fiction. Hi Fi Rush has none of those problems and its dialogue isn't even the same style to begin with. It's far more like a saturday morning cartoon.

        How is this too complicated for you guys to understand? If you want me to like the game, then you need to gut the obnoxious self-aware and snarky characters, gut the whole story, gut all of the special attacks that have cutscenes in them, and clean up the graphical style so it isn't a constant jumbled mess.

        You can't push these things as objectively good, and expect me to agree. That's just not happening.

            >One anon posted a link describing the difference
            I read the link, and it's complete BS. To quote one part of the article:

            >It is supposed to be a fun action game where you kill bosses with your guitar. So, the sometimes cringe dialogue doesn’t feel forced or a nuisance here. Hi-Fi Rush’s visual style literally resembles a cartoon, so, of course, childish jokes fit the surroundings.
            In other words, I'm supposed to defend obnoxious cringe because the game is being ironic about it. "it's not taking itself seriously, that somehow magically makes it better!" except the characters never shut up, and they expect me to care about them. That alone completely destroys his argument.

            If the game wasn't a tryhard like Forspoken, then at no point would it EVER try to sympathize the characters to me. Infact, it would let me kill them all like in Minecraft or Terraria. That's one of the biggest problems in the medium: this disgusting notion that NPCs and pieces of code should be treated like living breathing things, when they're nothing but polygons and pixels to be discarded.

              not really? because you missed the obvious point he made. "Hi-Fi Rush’s visual style literally resembles a cartoon, so, of course, childish jokes fit the surroundings." The style of HiFi Rush is a cartoony style which it doesn't take itself too seriously while Forspoken takes itself seriously.

                Pizza Tower also fits a cartoony aesthetic, and yet Peppino doesn't feel the need to shoot out a snarky quip every 0.5 seconds. Funny how that isn't necessary to maintain a cartoony game.

                >Pizza Tower also fits a cartoony aesthetic, and yet Peppino doesn't feel the need to shoot out a snarky quip every 0.5 seconds. Funny how that isn't necessary to maintain a cartoony game.
                That's because it's aesthetic is different than HiFi Rush. Pizza Tower is more Tom and Jerry style of comedy while HiFi Rush is more of a saturday morning cartoon style. Both have their differences.

                Because not everybody wants your rules. and Also it would be boring.

                Pizza Tower is a testament to how the rules would work. No obnoxious snarky quips, no cinematic attacks every 5 seconds to break up the combat, no obnoxious tag-along waifus to spew monologues and exposition in your ear, it's as simple as you can get.

                not exactly. Because it has a cutscene at the very beginning of the game. Which I remember correctly you hate. So Pizza Tower isn't a good example.

                And not you can not only skip it, but nobody even cares about the cutscene, and you wouldn't hear a single complaint from a PT fan if you lobbied to remove it. That's because the story is just white noise in the backnoise, as it should be.

                If I ask to remove even a single cutscene in HFR, then suddenly I've "ruined the game forever" according to fans. Showing their priorities, they value the story above the gameplay.

                you can't read very well or you're just asking me personally? I don't value story above gameplay in way what you might think. Sometimes the story is pretty shit but the gameplay is great for instance BL3. I absolutely hated the story in BL3 but I did like the gunplay and the weapons looks pretty cool.

                Then it shouldn't be so controversial for me to hate the story and obnoxious characters. These gameplay enthusiasts should barely even give such criticism a second thought.

                I love tons of video games, and they all have flaws, but the difference is that I don't try arguing any of them as perfect 10/10 masterpieces. Learn to take some criticism.

                [...]
                [...]
                >One anon posted a link describing the difference
                I read the link, and it's complete BS. To quote one part of the article:

                >It is supposed to be a fun action game where you kill bosses with your guitar. So, the sometimes cringe dialogue doesn’t feel forced or a nuisance here. Hi-Fi Rush’s visual style literally resembles a cartoon, so, of course, childish jokes fit the surroundings.
                In other words, I'm supposed to defend obnoxious cringe because the game is being ironic about it. "it's not taking itself seriously, that somehow magically makes it better!" except the characters never shut up, and they expect me to care about them. That alone completely destroys his argument.

                If the game wasn't a tryhard like Forspoken, then at no point would it EVER try to sympathize the characters to me. Infact, it would let me kill them all like in Minecraft or Terraria. That's one of the biggest problems in the medium: this disgusting notion that NPCs and pieces of code should be treated like living breathing things, when they're nothing but polygons and pixels to be discarded.

                >b-b-but muh criticism
                you can say what you want, you're just gonna have to deal with it.

    I didn't bother with Hi Fi Rush even when I like action games and keep looking at new indie releases in the hopes of a new game because it's a rhythm game and I don't like rhythm games in the slightest.

      The rhythm part isn't that demanding, it's not like some crazy Osu/DDR autism. Once you've tuned in it's barely different from the attack-wait-attack-attack combo inputs in Devil May Cry

        Devil May Cry doesn't force you to follow a metronome so you're doing a very dishonest comparison.
        You may claim that the rhythm part isn't demanding but it's still there and the game is designed around it. It's like claiming that an action game which is governed by a stamina bar a la Dark Souls plays exactly like Ninja Gaiden 2: "just use light attacks bro".

        >and I don't like rhythm games in the slightest.

        why not? don't like music or just lack a sense of timing?

        I love music but I find those games extremely restrictive due to being a slave of an on-screen indicator and not only not having no room for mistakes but simply not being able to play the game the way you want or you feel more comfortable.
        When I played Sekiro and Lies of P I still was able to play them as regular action games even when they were designed around their parry system because you don't have a metronome on-screen forcing you to parry every 3.5 seconds or you die / lose 1/5 of your lifebar.
        Of course I had to parry the frick out of attacks but I did it at my own pace and even found alternative solutions to when the parry timing was too strict or too risky.

        I won't tell you my race (because it doesn't matter; to you all of us are animals) but I'm not white.

    Don't get why this is so hyped and praise
    It's a good game but games like bomb rush flop and forgotten even though it has same quality and fun

      This game got praise only because of its direct immediate connections to Microsoft, available for free for a pass multiple millions of gamers have, day one immediately before any narratives could've been built about it on launch day.

      Idk if you can't tell but there's multiple groups that raid this place, and directly want to try and be the judge jury and executioner on the perception of the game on this social platform.

      There's also groups that want to genuinely see everything fail, because of how epic and awesome it is to watch the fallout, ever since the day of TORtanic really blew up lolcows in the gaming industry.

      So day 1 you have a genuinely good game drop same day release as it was announced, owned by a studio owned by Microsoft one of the big 3, on their game pass and a bunch of terminally ill clout chasers flat footed on controlling the narrative of the game.

      So now a bunch of people found out, played and realized it was a great game for free, that pissed off the delusional "gatekeepers" who now spam the studio being shuttered as proof the game was a le ebin TORtanic flop all along and they were right in their shit flinging.

        Your narrative falls apart when this same fanbase will trash other games for no reason other than them not having waifus, or not being something that can be used in a console war.
