The Last of Us Part II Gameplay Trailer

By | Hey You Video Game Blog | No Comments

As a huge The Last of Us fanboy I was excited to see the gameplay for the Last of Us Part 2 at E3. It looks as if it’s shaping up to everything that I hope the game would be. My only concern is whether this really is a gameplay video. The actual gameplay looked so smooth, immersive, and life like that my cynical side thought “This can’t be real gameplay!” Just watching Ellie destroy these dudes in an environment that shatters, gets scuffed up, and breaks was a real thrill.

Definitely excited for this game, and doubly so when Naughty Dog shared that Joel is alive and will be part of the game! If this The Last of Us Part II Gameplay is an indicator of how great the game will be…well we’re in for a real treat!

Can’t wait to fight some zombies!

By | Hey You Video Game Blog | No Comments

pubg crossbow killsThe crossbow in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is amazing. Often overlooked as being a useless weapon it’s rarely used during gameplay, but it’s a powerhouse. The crossbow is silent and will one hit any enemy regardless of what level helmet they’re wearing. It’s interesting, because some people complain that it’s the worse weapon in the game. Read More

Am I Xenophobic for Not Wanting to Play with Chinese PUBG Players?

By | Hey You Video Game Blog | 2 Comments

pubg chinese playersI was an early adopter of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. Even with all its flaws I loved the gameplay, and have sunk hundreds of hours into the game. Half my time is spent playing with a core group of friends (the Hey You Video Game guys) and the other half  by queuing up with randoms on squad.

Joining squad as an individual has always been a crapshoot. You never know what level of expertise your fellow teammates are, whether they have microphones, or whether they might just team kill you for your loot (albeit this has been fixed with the reporting feature. Thanks Bluehole!). Playing solo makes me paranoid, duo seems too intimate, and so I often roll the dice to see what kind of squad I get.

Things began to change late last year when I began to get placed onto teams with more and more Chinese players. This makes sense, because as of November 2017 more than half of the PUBG player base spoke and read Chinese. At first I found it somewhat amusing trying to communicate over the mic with my Chinese teammates. I’d run over to them and drop off extra ammo or gear, and they’d attempt to call out enemies. I found it fun for a while.

Nowadays, if you randomly queue up for Squad there is an incredibly low chance that you’ll land in a squad with other English speakers. I have played multiple rounds where all of my teammates are Chinese. I know this, because they’re literally speaking Chinese on their microphones.

Here’s why this is frustrating to me – one of the core characteristics of a Chicken Dinner winning squad is communication. Teammates are constantly telling one another where the enemy is, where extra supplies are, they’re making group decisions over where to parachute in and more. Communication is key to being #1 in PUBG, and when you can’t talk with your teammates you’re already at a huge loss. Honestly, I imagine that the Chinese players are just as frustrated when they queue up with an English-only speaker.

I don’t know exactly what the answer to this is (region lock, ping filter), but I hope that the developers will recognize this as an issue and not the ranting of a xenophobic fanboy.

Frankly, this is not going to ruin PUBG for me and I will surely spend many more hours playing squad games with randoms. I am excited that the game is doing great in China and look forward to the future of this game.

The Goose Game We’re Most Excited About in 2018

By | Hey You Video Game Blog | No Comments

goose gameIt’s 2018 and there’s only ONE game that needs to be released now!

GOOSE GAME.

You probably saw the teaser last October and forgot all about it, but not a day goes by where I smile at the thought of playing this game. To be honest – the only thing I think about these days are this damn goose. Why is he harassing and haranguing that poor gardener? What’s the backstory on the relationship between these two? Will the picnic of human food upset the goose’s belly? Will the developers incorporate loot boxes into this game?

These are all the questions that I need an answer to!

There’s not much news on the game, but you can join House House (Goose Game Developer) mailing list or follow them on twitter. If you hear anything new before we do, will you let us know? WE. CAN’T. WAIT.

Who else is excited for goose game?

The 5 Types Of Squad Leaders We Love And Hate

By | Hey You Video Game Blog | No Comments

squad leadersOne of the genius mechanics of Squad is the role of the Squad leader. The power and authority that Squad Leaders hold in Squad makes teamwork a necessity, and gives the Squad leader the power to lead their squad. A good Squad leader can be the factor that leads a team to victory. Taking the helm of Squad leader isn’t for everyone, but for those who have an understanding of the game and the ability to guide a group of players to victory. With this said, we’ve all had our fair share of…how should we say it?…interesting squad leaders personalities.

Whether you’ve played Squad for 10 hours or 1,000 hours we’re sure that you’ve experienced a variety of Squad leader personalities. Here’s some of the Squad Leader personalities that we love and hate.

1. The Napoleon Bonaparte

napoleon squad leaderThis squad leader is a tactician of the highest degree. Quoting “The Art of War” he articulates exactly what you’ll be doing as a squad and what the outcome of the battle will be. You’re going to take the bigh ground, and force a pinch on the valley. He’s keeping the map updated with vital information, and is consistently relaying important tactical information over the mic. You’re not playing a video game, you’re participating in history in the making. Read More
