Games like these give me hope for the industry
>>631340136especially when they crush AAA games
Marketing campaign is over, sorry. Mediocre game pushing a social agenda over likeable characters that will be forgotten just like every AAA westoid game released over the past few years. Game pass is not a real business model and this game has not made any money.
>>631340308>$30>releases the same day it's announced>no huge hype cycle>just drop a game that's fucking fun, polished, no bugs, looks good and has a great combat systemIt's like a fever dream. Just finished it today and I just loved every single minute of it, I had a huge dumb grin playing through all of it.
>>631340308>white male abusing black womanThis website is one of the most hateful and unstable places in the seedy underbelly and bowels of the dark web. I have attempted to respectfully and reasonably debate various points and have only been met with insulting homophobic, transphobic, racist, antisemitic, sexist, misogynistic and a plethora of other hateful remarks. I have even been, on multiple occasions since Reddit has gone down for a short while, threatened with forcible homosexual rape. I have to say that I am appalled and physically ill at the sheer amount of blatant antisemitic statements and beliefs, nazi infatuation, homophobia, transphobia and racism. I’m not even going to mention the moronic actual goddamn trump support (not even gonna capitalize his name because he means so little to me). This website is just a cesspool of low IQ neandrathals that are so out of touch with humanity I would be hard pressed to call you “people.” You all need to educate yourselves on the actual science. How can anyone deny the Holocaust or say that African Americans are subhuman; that’s what that fascist douche canoe Hitler did before he murdered all those innocent people who were just trying to live their lives. My heart aches with how evil and hateful you people are. I come from a site where actual intelligent conversations happen and people respect one another. Maybe think about how you’re the problem instead of Jews or African Americans.
>story is about fighting le heckin' evil corporationsTranny reddit game
>>631340136can you say the same for the other game these guys made?smethingsomething ghostwire somethig
>>631341486Yeah, corporations support your side so much in the culture war right?
>>631341185Go spam you gay copypasta somewhere else retard
>>631340136I’m just glad it got a PC release instead of being sent to die on Xbox. At least some people played it.
>>631341678I didn't say i like them. It's just boring that every second modern games's plot revolves arount that
>>631341790>At least some people played it.this is "some"?
>>631341937Pretty poor when Game Pass has like 30 million subscribers and the only prerequisite for "players" is booting the game
LETS IGNORE IS A 6 HOURS TECH DEMOLETS IGNORE THE FULL PRICELETS IGNORE ALL THE MIXED AND BLACK CHARACTERS LETS IGNORE THE LESBIANS SCENELETS IGNORE THE ANTI USA ANTI CAPITALISM MESAGGELETS IGNORE EVERYTHING AND DENY REALITY,THE SHILLS SPECIAL

>>631342476How bout I ignore your shitposting, Forspoekn shill
>>631340136If it is not on the Nintendo Switch it is not a video game. >>>/tv/
>>631342535Nigga i can barely name 5 games that came out last year. Everything is shite
I love this game, but I hope the sequel trims all the platforming and removes Korsica.
>>631342776>”uh, all games these days are the same! It’s so tiresome!”>”uh, I haven’t played any games in years”If you spend more time on here whining than playing games, just kill yourself
>>631342915But i'm not wrong
Both Forspoken and this game have the same kind of insufferable humor.
>>631342776What are some games you like?
>>631343324games have always been shit on average. You being a depressed manchild doesn’t make modern games worse on average. And you’re completely wrong about the “muh evil corporation” complaint. Retard
>>631343527Uhh fun ones? Like RE, DMC, HL
>>631343440NOOOOOO YOU DONT GET THIS GAME IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE...LE JAPAN!
>>631343745They're both from le Japan, retard. Shit, Hi-Fi was directed by a westerner.
>>631343440How so?Frey was written like she was high and mighty and above everything in that shitty game.Chai didn't give off that same level of bad writing
>>631343581Not talking about average. Modern games that get metacritic 90+ are shit like tlou 2 and cyberpunk and filled with leftist tranny ideology and soulless as fuck
>>631343745You are a dumb ape thats all i'll say
>>631343862>/pol/ tourist doesn’t play gamesImagine my shock. Why don’t you OD on opioids or shoot up a kindergarten?
>>631343941as >>631342614 said, it's shitposting
>>631340136>hope is constant corporate marketingabsolutely baroque.
>>631344153>everyone who's not left wing freak is le pol!!!!Kys, you can't even have a normal response and just do ad hominem
hifi is the only game I've had to add to my never buy list in 2023. The shilling is why it made the list.
>>631344368No, retard, I just don’t play games that don’t interest me. I don’t whine about shit like some ineffectual culture warrior. Kill yourself. No one will miss you
>>631344548Your mom will miss my BWC faggot
>>631344668My mom doesn't like wiggers
>>631343842>Hi-Fi was directed by a westerner.So that's why it looks so shit compared to the japanese IPs the game takes inspiration from.
>>631344704Oh right i forgot she likes actual niggers like your sister kek
>>631342805>and removes Korsica
>>631340136That Prodigy part was great
>>631344668What a pathetic capitulation. A microcosm of your whole life
>>631345104>I say le big words so i'm... le smart!
>>631340136This game felt like it came out of nowhere, like I didn't even know it existed until people started shitting on Forspoken lol
Yahtzee is rightThis game is insulting because it demonstrates big companies perfectly understand what a good videogame is They just refuse to not make games as a service goyslop
>>631345215>microcosm is a big wordSasuga, poltard
>>631340136Quite literally FotM HAHAHHAHAHAH
>>631345625Published and funded by bethesda (owned by xbox)
>>631345542Yahtzee is an idiot. Wasting your time watching him means you are the same
>>631345431It literally did, it dropped on the Xbox showcase and no one knew it was being made
>>631340136mid: the game
>>631345696And? It's still a small company.
>>631345542Why should they put in the effort when the retard masses will consume whatever slop they serve?
>>631340136Seeing a soulful game like Octopath Traveler have its kinks ironed out and massively improved with Octopath 2. Gives me hope for the industry. I just hope that Square Enix agrees.
>>631344932Nta, but I can see it. Third team member makes the cycle switching for the call-ins a degree more of a pain than just switching between two, and her ability is really just an excuse to inflate the stun gauges of enemies and get rid of a mechanic that actively removes control over your character. She's a great character, but could benefit the most of the three from a rework if there's a sequel
>>631345662>starts using japanese wordsYou really are the sterotypical tranny weeb gamer nolifer, go dilate your axe wound freak weirdo
>>631341486But it was a benevolent corporation until it was taken over by an evil (not white) dude.
>>631344932>Bad, redundant ability>Absolutely abysmal voice>Annoying puns and humor>Uninteresting dynamic with Chai>Barely any character growth or interaction since she comes in too lateIf she didn't shit up my partner attacks all the time I'd forget she's even part of the group honestly.
>>631345826Fire is important in making parries not the answer to literally everything, and Korsica exists as a counter to it like Macaron exists to z-shielding and Peppermint exists to shieldingReally what you're complaining about is the method with which you select assists which I think nobody likes Scrolling through them is just a poor implementation
>>631346037But you can still parry the beginning of fire attacks and cancel them actually spreading fire
>>631346037Parries fucking suck in this game what are you smoking.
>>631346161>Parries fucking suck in this game what are you smoking.
>>631341486>didn't play the gamewhy even bother writing a reply
>>631340136If only the writing wasn't irritating and complete trash
>>631346149Some of them
>>631342805but Korsica is best girl
>>631346191It gives you access to a shitty launcher and breaks some minor poise, that's it. It's only worth pulling off on a few select combo streaks, for everything else it's just better to dodge and call in an assist after. The game needed to make the grab launcher a light attack finisher and instead give you a heavy-hitter counter with heavy attack.
>>631346161they are by far the easiest way of inflicting stun, and the directional parry makes you incredibly safe
>>631345682This is a good outlook into the current mindset in media.Games should be "fotm". This is a product that was made, it was released, people played it, and that was it. It's a finished, self-contained product, it has a beginning and an end. It's not a way to expose you to a real money cash shop, it's not a "live service" with "content" every 2 weeks to get you to spend money, it's not a shoe-in for a cinematic universe. You're like the people complaining that there are movies under 2hrs and without a post-credit scene that is a teaser for the "next part". It's a cancerous mindset.
>>631346161What? Parry is insanely overpowered, get directional parry and you aren't taking damage ever again + a parry with Korsica's debuff stuns anything incredibly fast.
>>631345847Lmao cry more pol tranny
>>631345826>>631346037>dmc4 weapon switching filtering yet another generation.>>631346191>>631346519>parry not goodYou get extremely easy posture breaks on enemies even on rhythm master, you get a fuck ton of meter (chip for battery on parry is fun), counter-assist with macaron destroys armor shielding in one go and has shorter cooldown, you can break the final bosses posture in a single parry sequence from his laser drones, all while being one of the easiest parry systems in any game where attacks are telegraphed and start on the beat. The game is so easy you don't really need to use parry but I think it was a mistake making it a core mechanic because that's probably why they made it so easy and good, all while having a stupid good dodge as well.
>>631346519>it's just better to dodge and call in an assist after.not unless the enemy is already staggered, which the fastest way to do so is by parrying. unless I'm missing something
>>631340136And it's an action game. Companies that aren't Capcom or Platinum can still make action games, it's a miracle.
>>631347308The game could've used some unparriable attacks I think.Still it was a blast honestly.
>>631347308That's not how dmc4 weapon switching works you retard
>>631347013>tranny calls me a trannyI've seen everything
>>631340136YOU ARE THE PERFECT DRUG THE PERFECT DRUG THE PERFECT DRUG
>>631347812then explain to me how Dante from the Devil May Cry series switches between the 3 devil arms or 3 guns in devil may cry 4
>>631340136Don’t get too excited. This game is a one in a million miracle we don’t deserve. I hope things get better too but I’m just thankful we got this at all.

idk man the drm kinda blows
>>631340136Why did they make Chai a murderer? I feel like all the higher ups going to jail would fit the tone of the rest of the game better.

>>631345797With a very big benefactor
>>631345542The fact this game didn't get any hype, was $30 on release makes me think Bethesda actually had no idea what they had in their hands.Very much the definition of a sleeper hit I think.
>>631340136It's funny how zoomerinos loved this game for being straight fun saturday morning cartoon but millennials hate it for not being le deep, dark or cinematic enough when the director is the typical soi millennial.
>Want to play>Got PC that can run it>But planning on grabbing Series X in the next few months for Gamespass box.Good thing it's first party I guess so no time limit.
>>631351214Luckily Bethesda knows how to work /v/
>>631351506anon who the fuck are you talking about?
>>631351517You can start now and load the save when you get a SeX. Unless your intent is to play it at a higher resolution I guess
>>631340464Boy, if I'd ever seen a bot post, this is it.
give me this game but with dethklok songs.
>>631340136If it was made by a fucking western developer you all will be hating it, its okay when japan does it basically
>>631340136>rhythm game>the music is absolutely terrible and forgettableWhat were they thinking?
I really loved it and how it really feels like the director's vision, having been pitched with the Don't Stop Me Now scene from Shaun of the Dead and the phrase "SEGA Blue Sky aesthetic". My biggest issue is that replays currently are a bit of a slog with all the unskippable segments designed for a first run, and also some of the original music is just okay (some of it is great and most of the licensed music is excellent in how it's used but some stages just don't have memorable tracks).>>631346161This game has one of the strongest parries I've ever seen, the window is pretty wide and 98% of attacks will land on the beat with a windup and audiovisual cue the beat before OR be multi-hit attacks you can mash parry during as long as you time the first one. It's a test of your rhythm and your ability to keep the rhythm while multi-tasking, not a tight reactionary defensive mechanic. WA-ES-2 and Kale Phase 3 making you parry on the offbeat is one of the only times the game makes you really work to parry properly. Then if you Directional Parry you get free i-frames and more benefits if you slot in chips for it. The only way it would be easier would be if parrying was tied to attacking like in Revengeance.
>>631343440Hi-Fi Rush focuses almost entirely on physical comedy while Forspoken's humor is largely the protagonist spouting one-liners
>>631341185You'd think /v/ is getting smarter for not mass replying to copypasta like this, but in reality is because no one in here has attention span over 30 sec.
>>631346519where's that webm where anon parries Kale's entire lightning attack
>>631350454because it's a silly cartoon and the bad guys exploding for no reason is funny
>>631352714the director is a white guy
>>631342476you have no idea what a tech demo is
>>631352714but jojo, the director, is american...?
>>631351982Honestly it's just the sort of game I wanna play in my basement, PC is in my room and fuck carrying it back and forth. Shit will also be a BC box for me.
>>631345823>I just hope that Square Enix agreesit didn't sell 500 million copies, sorry anon but from now on they will only make FF7 remasters, remakes and spin off
>>631353835look at that man, living the ultimate weeb dream
>>631353482See>>631353835All gooks, cope
>>631354216*nipsget your racism right you double nigger
>>631353835Jojo is made by a fucking gook, what are you smoking?
>>631354216Johannes had a really major role in the game, on top of directing he was the person who pitched the concept, came up with the way to mix action and rhythm in a tech demo, wrote the entire story, and voiced several characters. He's not a figurehead, Mikami picked him up as a protege for a reason.
>>631340136shame about the shitty animation tho
>>631354084The director of Bayo Origins is the same. Went from playing Bayonetta 1 in high school to moving to Japan to directing a Bayo spinoff. Happy for that guy.
>>631345996>>Absolutely abysmal voiceIf only there was an easy and obvious fix for that.
>>631352997>Hi-Fi Rush focuses almost entirely on physical comedystop lying nigger, I played the game, can't fool me
>>631342805I hope that the sequel has an attractive male character to play off Chai.Like a world-weary cynical older man (pic related) who Chai is able to win over.
>>631356639you're right, it's physical comedy, Chai being the dumbest man to ever live, or the running gag about all the coffee machines only making decafhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_HmRX8rhlc
>>631340464This post nails it. Right at the top but most posters choose to ignore it or completely deflect into unrelated ad hominem. Hi-Fi Rush's appeal is entirely constructed by marketing and anyone who actually plays it knows that this is all true.
>>631356847most posters choose to ignore it because they actually played the game and know it simply isn't true
>>631340464What's unlikable about Chai?
>>631356847I didn't even know the game existed until the day after it came out because I didn't watch that MS showcase it was announced in and I still loved it. I know people call any positivity towards brand new games shilling but it gets to be a little silly.
>>631340136I love everything about the presentation, but I'm just so fucking bad at rhythm games...
>>631357921My rythm score went from constant 40% to a consistent 80% once I started to stop trying to match the rythm and just mashed like a madman.
>>631357921There's a dozen visual indicators of where the beat is. With a little effort you should be able to beat the game on Normal even with no rhythm.
>>631358121this but unironically, the only filter are the obligatory block sections
>>631357674He's not super likable in the first few chapters to be honest, too much of a manchild out for himself until around the time you meet Macaron & CNMN. He becomes a better person once he gets the scope of what's happening and has a group of people he knows have his back.
>>631357674A bit too much of a dumbfuck early on, but when he grows up a little bit he becomes likable.Macaron and CNMN are still the best.
>>631357921you can go full brainlet mode and turn on an automatic visual metronome that shows each beat, if you can't get it by ear or through the background indicators.
