Everything You Need to Know About Gaming Glasses

By | Hey You Video Game Blog | No Comments

gaming glassesNot To Be a Buzzkill, But Your Eyes May Be Messed Up

Do you love gaming as much as we do? Are you spending hours every day (or week!) in front of a screen? Chances are that the amount of time you’re spending looking at the television or monitor is causing damage to your eyes. This damage can lead to eye symptoms such as double vision and blurring. We’re not trying to scare you, but give you the facts. In 2016 it was estimated that over 70 percent of people who find themselves in front a screen daily for extensive periods of time suffer from some sort of eye issue (also known as computer vision syndrome).

There’s a few reasons why gamers are at risk for developing vision issues from long-term screen use.

1) The text that you read on a printed paper or book has sharply defined edges, but those on a screen are made of pixels. These pixelated characters have blurred edges (ever so slightly), and can make it difficult for our eyes to focus. In an attempt to focus the blurred edges our eyes can be strained and become fatigued.

2) Unconsciously while gaming for long periods of time people don’t blink. You can’t blink when you’re anticipating an enemy coming around the corner. On average a person blinks 17 plus times a minute. Those on a computer are blinking approximately 12-15 times a minute. The lower blink rate causes eyes to dry out, and can cause irritation.

3) Screen glare causes our eyes to strain and can be harsh on our poor eyeballs.

We found most of this information and more from this well researched study on Computer Eye Strain (it’s a bit dense, but informative!). Read More

#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.
