Hi Fi Rush struck a chord with its Game Pass stealth drop – here’s how Tango Gameworks made music matter

Director John Johanas speak to us about the origin of the idea, the gruelling task of using licensed music , and Game Pass. Hi-Fi Rush is brilliant. That’s our review. Consider it a brief follow up to our initial impressions piece from earlier this year. Back then, Alex Donaldson stated it could be one of the best games of the year. Months later… he’s still right. If there’s on thing that’s on repeat in my head even now, it’s the amazing work the ensemble at Tango Gameworks did when it comes down to the game’s relationship with music. It’s not…

Ghostwire: Tokyo has added new stuff, and I have a tourism tip for new players

If you’re starting playing Ghostwire: Tokyo after it came to Game Pass this week, I have a hot tip for you: prioritise upgrading movement abilities. The freedom to glide from rooftop to rooftop over haunted Tokyo will bring you so much more joy than any incremental damage upgrade. That’s the most important thing I have to say, that it makes for good virtuatourism. Oh, and I suppose a free content arrived this week too, adding new side-missions, handy new combat abilities, and a new “rogue-lite” mode. The update, uh, apparently also added Denuvo, over a year after the game launched?…

Introducing the RPS Game Club’s first game of the month – it’s Hi-Fi Rush!

A new thing for RPS in 2023 is the RPS Game Club, a kind of monthly book club for games where we pick a game to play each month, write some cool things about it, and have a big all liveblog discussion with you lot, our readers, at the end of it. It’s a project I’ve been wanting to get off the ground for some time now, and finally, the Treehouse Game Club doors have been busted open… and there’s some toe-tapping guitar music coming from inside? That’s right, we’re playing Hi-Fi Rush as our first RPS Game Club game,…

VG247’s The Best Games Ever Podcast – Ep.38: The best game you’d never believe was from that developer

Sometimes a game developer just goes off-piste, and the results are wonderful. Welcome to VG247’s Best Games Ever Podcast: Episode 38 – The best game you’d never believe was from that developer. Hi-Fi Rush is a joyous cel-shaded rush of a rhythm combat game with a tone and art style not unlike Jet Set Radio, and it’s surprising, because it comes from a studio most widely known for Evil Within, a spiritual follow-up to Resident Evil, and Ghostwire Tokyo, which is sort of like Far Cry: Shibuya via Siren Blood Curse. It’s not the only example of a surprising or…

Xbox’s Hi-Fi Rush has that Dreamcast era vibe, and it could be one of the best games of the year

The latest Xbox Game Pass surprise drop has a really retro feel to it – and that is a very good thing. Time is ever-flowing, but it’s also undoubtedly a flat circle. Trends come and go, and loop back around, and here we are – it’s the year of our lord 2023, and a time portal has just opened above our heads and dropped a Dreamcast classic into our laps. Or a GameCube classic, to be fair – it feels like it’d be most at home on either of those. The point is, the latest first-party addition to Xbox Game…

Hi-Fi Rush is the new game from the makers of Evil Within and it’s out now

So those Tango Gameworks leaks turned out to be true. After repeatedly stating that this evening’s Xbox Developer Direct would feature just four games, it turned out to contain four. Hi-Fi Rush is a new third-person rhythm action brawler from the makers of Evil Within and Ghostwhire: Tokyo. It’s a substantial departure from their previous games in terms of style – although there’s an even bigger surprse. The bigger surprise is it’s out now, so you can play it via Game Pass right away.

Ghostwire: Tokyo haunted by game-breaking black screens on the Steam Deck

I’ve spent the past three days trying to get Ghostwire: Tokyo running on the Steam Deck, and have been thwarted every time by an impassable black screen that appears immediately after the opening cutscene: a failure of the next cutscene to roll correctly. Despite a possible fix being available, this has yet to work for me either, and now that the game has fully released it seems I’m not alone in my suffering. Read more
