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.
And the gameplay video dropped after all that with the same name that was apparently trademarked and also cheeks
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.
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.
Reminds me of the time a friend of ours cancelled out on an event we bought tickets for because she said her goldfish died. Last time we ever heard from her too lol
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
"playing other games" and "going outside" still send shivers down my spine
Try Warframe :)
I still get crippling anxiety whenever I recall that phrase on the back of my bottlecap telling me to basically touch grass
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!
*Deads Pace - Get it right!
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!
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+!
15:30 "Krafton had invested more than 160 dollars into the game" you know what I am absolutely ready to believe that
Austin, you dropped the ball buddy!
Dammit you beat me to it! XD
That’s so funny 😂
For real it has to be at least 165 or 170
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
Genuinely look forward to this every week, haven't missed an episode since the show started.
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!
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.
Would love to see your take on the new " We Were Here Forever". Looks like a promising co-op title!
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.
@KJJ i grabbed it full price waited on it for few days saw the reviews then returned it unopened for a full refund
I reckon there is a slip chance they'll recoup 160 (maybe)
@Mordor RDR2 is one of the best games ever made but go off babe
i mean it's technically the truth lol
Literally was just thinking how much I wanted to watch This Week In Video Games and bam here it is. Thanks ShillUp.
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.
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.
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.
it's so true though... although i haven't tried escaping since 2017
The Day Before drama has given me more entertainment than the game ever could have.
@victor n Didn't even have to pre-order it..
That's literally EVERY SINGLE AAA RELEASE SINCE 2014 when you think about it though, for real.
Be a Pokemon fan. or better, a SONIC Fan. Endless entertainment, pain, and salt flow on the internet.
@Donuts Atomic Heart looks legit. But you never really know right? Never pre order is sage advice at this point.
@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.
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
NOT have known that without this series telling me about it. Just wanted to let you know we all appreciate you and your videos.
This man still finds a way to slip Destiny into every video. He’s influenced by Hive magic I tell ya
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.
Sam Witwer really was just like "Yeah ill take 20 cents"
15:30 damn, if they made Callisto Protocol on a $160 budget, that explains a lot
@Audiojunkie The actors alone would've cost 50% of the budget
They spent $160 on the combat, they spent $15,999,840 on everything else .
Callisto is amazing , Days gone is beautifully underrated and I'll gladly go down with those ships.
@Michael T That's pretty bad for what was supposed to be the hot Triple A release of the month
I don’t know why but the way you present news in these videos has me watching from begging to end.
What are you begging for?
The reason last weeks video was such a hit is plain and simple, we missed you! Wonderful to have you back :)
In case people weren't aware - whilst there may not be another Xcom game in development, Goldhawk Interactive are currently developing their sequel to Xenonauts - a game inspired by the classic Xcom games which I highly recommend.
It’s insane to me that naughty dog is not thinking of using everything it’s learned to go back to jak and daxter. Such missed potential especially considering that there is real hunger for that series to come back and be done well.
I'm so glad Roboquest is getting some attention! I love that game, it has some great potential, and I can't wait to see where the devs take it.
Hi-Fi Rush is so good it’s practically a MUST PLAY for anyone who likes DMC or character action games.
@Mr Genesis it’s really not cause god of war is some walking simulator soap opera and elden ring is original
@The TrashCanMan Yeah like God of war ragnarok.. that lost to a new IP. Crazy how New IP actually get GOTY more than Sequels
@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
@Jur the Orc solstice was excellent 👍
Hi-Fi Rush is friggin' incredible. Bought it on a whim after hearing some buzz about it, and I can't put it down. Definitely worthy of the hype.
Love the content and your style of reviews. Keep it up bro!
Damn is it good to be back, I look forward to these every week! Keep up to good work Skillup!
A lot more views than your armor mitigation and vendor rest videos from div 1 days. I don't think I ever thank you enough for getting me through 1.3(the dark days). So glad to see all your success over the years!
Last week's This Week In Videogames was the most watched one because GAMERS missed you.
Feels good to have you back good sir. It’s going to be one hell of a year. 🇬🇧
The Day Before devs be like “my dog ate my video game”
and then it stepped on a bee! 😫
The dog also ate most of their website, it seems.
They had a flat tire, but they're on foot.
The bridge was open, but there's no canals or rivers.
Dog is purchased a year after homework is assigned
Glad you are feeling better man, thanks as always for great content 👍
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’ve been holding off on trying Hi-Fi Rush, but I’ve heard so many fantastic things about it that I think I have to jump into it today.
Solid 8/10 for me. Beautiful art and great characters carry average but innovative gameplay. :)
Great video skill up! Congrats on last week popping off. Love your stuff.
Great to see you up and running. I'm also hyped for Lightfall, can't wait. Since you've mentioned catching up with this season's content, can I suggest getting the Disparity and Ikelos SMG crafting patterns? Also, Revision Zero quest mission is awesome.
@Douglas Diggins wronger
@Mark Murex wrong
Lol Destiny bad
The Arc Trace rifle is a must-get. Ikelos SMG is good, but it has always been over-rated imo.
"Look at the shape of him, it just makes sense." goes in the top 10 best SkillUp lines ever written.
Stormy Daniels would disagree, though.
alognside "Drugs are good" and "put on the gimp mask and your man is more than happy to obligue" trully a highlight for 2023
Glad you are putting a spotlight on “Shadows of Doubt.” First saw it on ACG and it’s definitely my cup of tea.
Man, so excited for more Mechwarrior. God that is such a fun franchise
Keep it up man. Seems like you're growing and growing each week.
Genuinely crazy that this channel hasn't hit 1M subs yet
Hi Fi Rush is weird and different and I love it. It’s great to see fun cartoony games come to Xbox
“Drugs are good” - Skill Up 2023
Shilling to Big Drug. Pathetic :(
Explains a lot
Nice covert Diablo quote at end of video. Yes, I do want to “stay while, and listen.” Notification bell dinged. :)
"Put on the gimp mask." - Skull Up 2023
Can we get an antibodies review?
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.
Thanks for mentioning Mech Warrior. Really. The last DLC came out last week, was really enjoying it. Take care and stay safe.
Can’t wait for the review of HI FI RUSH. It’s just fantastic and I’ve been gushing about it to everyone. Looking forward to hearing Skill Up simp for another game like Destiny or Outer Wilds
the only show, that I am looking forward to every wednesday.... to be more precise... its the only show that I look consistently every week since I discovered it^^ I even was a bit angy that I couldn't watch this episode earlier this week cause of my workload 😅
Each week you deliver, and it always makes for the best lunch break!
When should they have trademarked it? The Day Before announcing it
Hey this guy's alright!
Last week's video was liked and watched so much because we missed you man! Thanks for all the great content, keep 'em coming.

Excited to see if the Pharaoh remake is good; spent a good number of hours on that one back in the day
it's amazing how he is pushing forspoken away, reminds me when a kid pushes away something they don't like to eat haha.
Great episode. You’re becoming a huge influence on the review landscape and your never compromising commitment to quality and thoughtful review shines through every week. Look forward to every SkillUp video!
The is next level ball gargling. Yikes.
Hi-Fi Rush is pure fun and is what I needed in my life right now
makes senese why that art director left now ... clearly tango works insnt what it was ... mayne it will be good maybe it wont gusse we will see felt Tokyo wire was abit "meh"
@Dak Sans he never said it did lmao.
@journeyman121 Exactly :)
@Dak Sans he didn't say it did. I think it was just an aside.
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 .
I think the last this week in video games was so big was because we missed you shillup
I love how "sort of free stuff" was the on-screen title for the gamer gag segment, as if he was going to give some to all of us (27:47)
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.
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.
Thanks for yet another excellent Week in Videogames!
@Dylan Smith Definitely. I see Skill Up I know I'm in for quality content.
Bro hasn't even watched the video yet not that you need to for skill up tho
I'm surprised there's been no mention of Steamworld Build being announced last week. I haven't played a resource management game since the original Roller Coaster Tycoon or one of the early Sim City's, but I'm surprisingly hyped for this game. The Steamworld games have all been fantastic.
I don’t normally do this, but for the next fest coming up next week be sure to check out the Book of Hours demo!
Made by the same people who made Cultist Simulator and it definitely deserves some attention!
This might be an odd question, but where did you find the soundtrack for this episode? Seems more rockin' than previous titles and just sounds fantastic.
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!
After finishing Hifi rush last night I can definitely say it'll be in my mind come December
@Test Of Time Gaming Both Forspoken and Hi-Fi Rush released around the same time. One is garbage and the other one is not
@Test Of Time Gaming Game pass is killing playstation
shouod we compare xboxs lowest rated ganme to forspoken if you really wanna be captain redundant?
please explain how PlayStation (the most profitable brand in the console space) is dying ? il grab sime popcorn i cabt wait to read this amazing ecnomics reply 😂😂😂😂
@Michael T Hi-Fi Rush is dominating steam charts despite being on game pass whereas Forspoken is day one flop 😂😂
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.
Always thankful for your content! Thank you!!!
"its like if Apple designed a sex toy for your face" had me erupt in laughter in the office.
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.
I kind of appreciate the fact the last of us mostly follows the games for now because I always am sad there are amazing stories in games people like my dad will
Never get to experience
Thank you SkillUp for making my morning. Hi-Fi Rush is the surprise drop that we all needed.
"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"
Hi Fi Rush deserves all the praise
Dude, last week's this week went large because we all missed you!
Part II might get adapted where episode 1 will follow Ellie, episode 2 Abby and they keep switching until it culminates at the cinema.
SkillUp pls bring This Week in Videogames back to Spotify !!!
@J H Eden you work for Clip-Share?
@Matt Bget Clip-Share family subscription $20 pmonth split between 5 others Clip-Share premium for 3.30 pmonth
Yes plz youtube in my pocket is a nightmare of random ad clicks and video skips
We miss it skill up
We all watched last week's update video because it was the only bit of new content from you in awhile. Keep it coming man.
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.
Thanks for watching you have been randomly selected among our shortlisted winners contact the number above to claim👆🎁
Damn I really think season 2 of TLOU TV show should've been a new in-between story between the two games.
This man brought RECEIPTS for The Day Before. I love it.
Fntasic is starting to seem more and more like a certain character from New Vegas with a theoretical degree in Physics.
Hi-Fi Rush is insane, would recommend it to anyone
@Damocles i second you. I too played it and didn't like it due to it's Genre but all my friends are extremely satisfied with it.
It's not for everyone, I simply can't get past the comic book artstyle. I'm sure it's a good game though!
Just finished it, it gets better as it goes along.
@JJ C why, because its short? Tbh, I kind of appreciate shorter but repayable games.
@MARCUS AARON �LIAO GO Not even close. Fun game but no.
Congrats on the solid viewer numbers on that last episode, sorry that you now have to sound like Kermit once a quarter now to meet those target ratings and hit goal expectations!! Great content, always relevant and creative. Thanks for the entertainment always!!
another banger - can you believe this is free - absolutely nuts - thank you mate
i could sit here all day listening to you talk madness about The Day Before
Could we get timestamps in the description/time scrubber? It makes it easier to track what topic were on.
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!
I'm very busy this month, but every time I boot up HiFi Rush it quickly gets better and better.
That’s a good guy right there. Good guy at Blizzard May he always be blessed for not going against what he believes is right and wrong just for a job and money.
