#40 – Monkey Bomb Symbols

By | Video Game Podcast | No Comments



Welcome to the best video game podcast in the entire world. You’ve just arrived at your destination, and are about to listen to your new best friends. Gimmick, Lemonsmith, and Virindi Puppet have been playing video games for over 20 years and their commentary will blow your mind. Collectively, they have the most refined opinions on the gaming universe and you’ll be surprised by their wit, candor, and humor.

On this week’s Hey You Video Game podcast you’ll be able to hear the boys talk about the following topics!

ASHES OF CREATION. It’s an up and coming online RPG shooteresque game that’s bending the MMO genre. Tired of boring fights in World of Warcraft and looking for something that combines the hit registry of a first person shooter with the story of the Tolkien Universe? We are! The hype is real on this game, but Gimmick refuses to succumb to the excitement. The guys talk about why this game looks promising. If you’re curious about the gameplay youtube video they’re referencing you can find it HERE.

Cyberpunk 2077. The company behind the Witcher franchise has released 45 minutes of their single player FPS. It’s got a Blade Runner vibe, and CD PROJEKT RED is  known for games with DEPTH. All of the guys are excited for this one, but Lemonsmith will probably be the only one who plays it. The other boogers rarely make the time for a single player game. What about you? Are you looking forward to this game? Are you happy that it’s first person or were you hoping for this title to be third person? Share in the comments below!

BATTLE ROYALE  – Not an episode goes by where Gimmick and Lemonsmith don’t talk about upcoming battle royale titles. The Call of Duty BR called Blackout has released some information that the guys dig into. Surprisingly we are more excited for Call of Duty BR over Battlefield V’s BR titled ‘Firestorm.’ The reasoning is fairly simple. Battlefield is introducing TANKS to their battle royale. No one wants to play BR and face off against a tank. How in the world is Battlefield going to balance that? We understand they’d like to put their own spin on the battle royale genre, but tanks aren’t the answer. The HYVG stance is that the battle royale genre is still ripe for the picking, and a game developer only needs a working, competitive BR that has no gimmicks (har har). Seriously though – no base building, no weaponized vehicles, no fancy red zones, and no desync. Make a battle royale like this and the people would flock to it.

New EMINEM ALBUM – Gimmick shares his love for the new album and the other two guys pretend to be interested. Go rap?

SCUM – All three of the guys bought SCUM to see if their opinions were right from previous episodes. They found the game to have some serious issues, but are hopeful that a few changes would make it fun. Lemonsmith created a YouTube video on his own experience playing the SCUM video game. Check it out HERE.

OTHER STUFF. They hit on a few other topics such as Black Desert Online Remaster, the idea for kamikaze monkey bombs, and ear issues.

Gamer Thumb Can Ruin You

By | Hey You Video Game Blog | No Comments

thumb hurts from gamingI have been gaming since I was a child, but I am no longer a kid anymore. I am 31 years old, and have a few gray hairs coming in. My body is starting to get a few aches and mystery pains, and I don’t recuperate from sickness as quick as I used to. This is all part of getting older and I have accepted that. Most of this doesn’t concern me, but I began to wonder how long term gaming would affect my body. I don’t know about you, but I want to be gaming for the entirety of my life and don’t want to be set back by any gaming related injuries. Out of curiosity I decided to research typical gaming injuries. While doing my research I came across a common injury that many gamers suffer from called gamer thumb.

Gamer thumb is a condition that affects the thumb and wrists. It can result in pain and sometimes a popping noise near the outside of the thumb or near the wrist. The symptoms can also include sore thumb joints and pain while flexing the wrist or while trying to grab something. Many gamers can feel pain and soreness while gaming and once developed even after setting the controller down. Read More

#39 – SCUM

By | Video Game Podcast | No Comments

scum gameWelcome to your favorite gaming podcast! Your best friends had a grew time recording this episode of the HEY YOU VIDEO GAME! podcast, and we hope you’ll enjoy it. Here’s a summary of the meal.

SCUM. The $20 survival game SCUM (Society can’t understand me) is out for early access. We put in our due diligence and watched hours of streams, videos, and reviews to give our thoughts on the game. Spoiler – we didn’t hate it.

BAD NEWS BATTLE ROYALE  – Lemonsmith drops a few bombs on the group related to the Call of Duty Battle Royale and Battlefield BR game. Let’s just say the news isn’t good. Hopefully changes are made and someone gets a clue. We really need a polished BR game that isn’t constructioNITE or desync PUBG. Please Dice! Help us!

Choices within Game Narratives. There are games like Stardew Valley, Mass Effect, Witcher, and Fable that require you to make choices that impact the narrative of the game. You can be a good guy or a bad person? What do you naturally lean towards while playing a game?

The Mythical 2 Hour Stream. Is it possible to have a highly produced two hour stream that brings in millions of viewers? Lemonsmith thinks so. Virindi Puppet and Gimmick are unsure, but the boys talk about this fantastical possibility.

Everything You Need to Know about Toxic Gaming Culture

By | Hey You Video Game Blog | No Comments

toxic gaming communitiesIf you have played any multiplayer video games online there is a good chance that you’ve had an encounter with a toxic player. We’ve all had those situations where we’ve fired up our game to enjoy a fun session only to be harassed and bothered by a toxic player. Toxic gaming culture seems to be on the rise with more gaming allowing for online multiplayer interactions. It would be surprising if an online gamer had never had an experience with a toxic player.

By toxic I am referring to any individual you meet in a video game who abuses and harasses other players. Perhaps they’re also engaging in activities in game that ruin the gameplay for all involved. This can include exploits, cheats, intentional team killing, and purposely losing matches. 

Have you ever been purposely killed by a teammate for no reason? You just encountered a toxic player! Someone shout bigoted, sexist, or racist slurs at you? You spotted a toxic player! Did you just listen to a teammate explain all the reasons why you’re the worst gamer on the planet? You encountered a toxic player? Did you join a team with another player who intentionally lost the match? You have come across a toxic player! Read More
