    The Day Before mysteriously disappears from Steam, saddle up for more TLOU Part 2 discourse and I hope you've already downloaded (and completed) Hi-Fi Rush or we're gonna have words.

    The Day Before is like when people keep asking the teacher for extensions to the deadline of their project, finding the silliest types of excuses.

    • No¹
      No¹ Month ago

      And the gameplay video dropped after all that with the same name that was apparently trademarked and also cheeks

    • Flouserschird
      Flouserschird Month ago

      Anyone with half a brain from the day it was announced should have known. The fact they never even bothered trademarking their game shows how incompetent they are. You people should know by know it’s impossible for no name indie devs to make AAA quality games.

    • Who Is Him
      Who Is Him Month ago

      Yeah but this is weird like what’s the point and why did they make one real game

      Same with Blue Box and Abandoned... It's just juvenile behavior, and if an adult does it, they probably have some psychological issues. Perhaps they actually DO have ambitions and talent and whatnot, but they might keep putting off their work because of addiction or depression or something like that. - I feel like, at least in the case of the Kahraman guy, there might be some personal issues and they need help. Or maybe he just has an ego. Who knows. Still a psychological issue. - Not so sure about the people behind "The Day Before", however... This seems much more of an organization up to no good, because they seem more in line with each other than over at Blue Box where there's a lot of disconnect between the people within.

    these videos are partly the reason why I enjoy youtube so much nowadays. They're just a chill vibe with a lot of heart and personality put into them. They have lots of humor and I enjoy them a lot. this week in video games has become one of my favorite things to look forward to

    I’ve been loving Deadspace and I gotta applaud you for always bringing up the indie games, they’re such a good time. I’ve been playing Death in the Water 2 since you mentioned it last week and overall this have been an incredibly spooky but fun week!

  • Jesse C.

    Dang, actually I'm shocked that your week in news videos aren't hitting over 500k everytime. They're very high quality and full of the most important gaming news. Seriously, such a gem to get one every Tuesday on the dot. Thank you!

    wild360 Month ago +11

    Finished Hi-Fi Rush last night. How on earth this gem was just shadow dropped with no marketing is insane. It was outstanding in a way that video games have been lacking in over the years. Looking forward to NG+!

    • Spoker
      Spoker Month ago

      I'm pretty sure they invest 160 million dollars
      Only that only 160 dollars on gameplay design, the rest on graphics, death scene, tons of marketing and paying their actors

    I’ve been watching since series your first TWIVG, but I never actually got around to saying: Thank you SkillUp for these round-up videos. They genuinely help me stay involved with the gaming medium through a busy college life.
    Like I’ve wanted to play the Pathless ever since it come out on PlayStation/PC, and now I’ll be able to on Xbox, and I would NOT have known that without this series telling me about it.
    Just wanted to let you know we all appreciate you and your videos.

      I played it on PC and its an absolute gem. Def recommend it on console and i might pick it up again on Xbox.

    another amazing week in videogames, the show was sorely missed as it is truly a highlight of the week. Stay strong for the madness that february will be!

  • Austin Crumpton
    Austin Crumpton Month ago

    Episode 3 of TLOU show was great but I'm sad about the parts of the game that were omitted in place of the events of the 3rd episode. Hanging upside down as Joel trying to shoot clickers, the high school, pushing the truck while fending off infected. Those were some of the absolute best parts of the game.

    I love that Skill Up accidentally says $160 instead of $160 million at 15:30 because that seems to suggest that The Callisto Protocol has sold less than 10 copies worldwide.

    Hey! Since we are going into, what is now, the biggest month every year in video game releases, it would be awesome if you could spin them all up into a single video to outline everything that is coming out for the month!
    Love your content, man. Keep it up.

  • DeanGetYourWings
    DeanGetYourWings Month ago +5

    Glad someone said something about The Day Before vanishes, I wanted to look into it based on some news and just nothing existed on Steam making me think I had gone insane.

  • TheYuriG
    TheYuriG Month ago +3

    Holy shit, i got chills from SkillUp whispering "We all try to escape at one point or another, but we all come back" at 17:02. Truly a videogame villain moment right there. He could probably do some Audible reader account and read me some scary books and I would easily piss myself.

  • AJB4356

      That's literally EVERY SINGLE AAA RELEASE SINCE 2014 when you think about it though, for real.

    • Ashaman 765
      Ashaman 765 Month ago

      @Donuts Atomic Heart looks legit. But you never really know right? Never pre order is sage advice at this point.

    • john wrath
      john wrath Month ago +1

      @Donuts atomic heart looks absolutely incredible and the devs have been way less shady. I don’t think atomic heart is a scam, but it might be a situation like Biomutant where it looks amazing in previews but doesn’t actually play nearly as well as it looks.
      The day before is a fucking scam. The “game” they’re showing in previews doesn’t exist. Atomic heart was picked up by game pass. Xbox isn’t gonna shovel millions at a dev to secure a game pass release without doing some degree of due diligence.

  • Michael del Castillo
    Michael del Castillo Month ago +1

    The amount of effort that went into thinking of the lie for The Day Before is crazy. It's the same energy as people thinking of the best and most discreet ways to cheat on a test instead of just spending that energy and time studying

  • bofooit gojo

    NOT have known that without this series telling me about it. Just wanted to let you know we all appreciate you and your videos.

  • CreationsFlare
    CreationsFlare Month ago +2

    The crazy thing about Hi Fi Rush is that it can be just as chill as it can be hell. I like Rhythm games, and I started on Hard and man they really turn up the pressure and requirements for S ranks.
    Conversely, Easy/Normal will probably feel like a breeze. Either way you'll be vibing through it. Literally the only flaw I have is that it has Denuvo on Steam.

    15:30 damn, if they made Callisto Protocol on a $160 budget, that explains a lot

    • Spoker

      @Audiojunkie The actors alone would've cost 50% of the budget

    • Audiojunkie
      Audiojunkie Month ago +3

      They spent $160 on the combat, they spent $15,999,840 on everything else .

      @Omar Sabir get a better PC Denuvo isn't crap. Every new game has DRM deal with it. Consoles have DRM. Steam API has DRM. There's Physical game DRM.
      Denuvo doesn't make the game perform badly at all. the 98% 5000 reviews on steam mean Denuvo isn't doing anything wrong

  • HaloMusic
    HaloMusic Month ago

    Why was last week's video so watched and liked? Because you consistently put some of the most informative and entertaining gaming content on the platform, with near unrivaled quality of research, structure, and presentation. Additionally, you unashamedly put your personality and opinions into each video, and you have yet to have any genuinely bad takes on developments around the media (though some may disagree on your game-specific opinions). Each video gets better and better, and we all eagerly look forward to the next week's. We all went through a bit of withdrawal during your break, so it's good to have you back.

    I decided to finally play through TLOU2 for the first time after passing when it launched a couple years ago because of all the criticism. I honestly loved it, although I definitely see the adaption to tv being difficult, I would assume we'll get a simultaneous format where each episode will feature both Ellie and Abby as they progress through their own stories and their paths approach each other, don't know how well this will work narrative wise.

    I honestly don’t understand why the dead space remake is only getting stuck at 9/10. It’s one of the best horror games I’ve ever played. The binaural audio is creepy as fuck, the new features are superb, the combat is nail biting and intense, even the story is way more compelling with the tension between Hammond and Daniels and the *minor ch3 spoilers* brief surprise live phone call from Nicole. I’m only on ch 5 atm but this is a perfect 10/10 action horror experience. It’s so damn polished and bug free, every new thing is well thought out and I’m genuinely curious how the story is gonna end this time I’m sure there’s gonna be a twist .

    The third episode of the last of us could’ve been so much better though. I thought when they were arguing about painting the house Frank was going to leaving. They made it seem like they were constantly arguing in that scene like the game. Then you know, it would switch to Joel and Ellie arriving at Bill’s. Instead they just recreated the opening scene of Up.

    • Dirpy Turtle

      I don’t I kind of liked the switch from the game, it brings a little more hope and light to the universe instead of the “everything is fucked and so are we” theme that the games have

    The only complaint I have so far with Dead Space Remake is the lack of the ability to place a waypoint on the map and the have your located make a line to it. Would be great for all the backtracking to opened up rooms mid game.

    I love how I got a little “I strongly recommend…” pop-up in the top right, after he finished talking about drugs being good. I was like “Yea! Skill Up recommending some good good!”

    I met the developers of RoboQuest at Gamescom last year (Indie floor). Very wholesome people. Had promised to try it out when it comes out and now I get to do that thanks to Game Pass. So looking forward!

    It did big cause we missed our skill up weekly dose ;). Also the dead space review was next level. No one structures their videos about gaming that well in my opinion.

    I really wish developers had more freedom to make the projects they’re passionate about. Sure, Tango Gameworks is known for horror games, but that doesn’t mean those are the only things they can make. I think we would have more fantastic games if developers could just do what they want rather than be forced into a soulless franchise.

    "No idea why that did as well as it did" you're one of the best voices in the industry my guy, your opinion is respected specifically because you're both alright with getting critical and always make sure to shout out the indie games.

    HiFi Rush showed them that shadowdrops are possible and could be incredibly well received. Give the Todd what he wants. Let the Todd give us "and you can play it tonight"

    Its unfortunate. I actually really liked forspoken despite its short comings. The world is interesting and the combat is pretty dope. I think it deserves another shot with a sequel.

    As much as we don’t want you to burn out, but I’d love some solid Skill Up content that isn’t just reviews.
    I’d love to hand over more watch time but can’t with new reviews because I want to experience the game first

    Hoping the Hi-Fi director can now make The Evil Within 3! He directed the DLC for the first and directed the second game. Seeing as Ghostwire: Tokyo started as TEW3, there's still hope!
