#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.

We hope you enjoy this episode of the Hey You Video Game podcast, and that you make this your PREMIER gaming podcast. If you want the dudes to talk about something on the podcast HIT US UP. We’re open to talking about anything from Super Smash Brothers to Grilled Cheese Sandwiches to Post-Modern Politics, but mostly video games. Thanks for listening!

#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.

#31 – Do Video Games Cause Violence?

By | Video Game Podcast | No Comments

do video games cause violence podcastWe’re taking a more serious note on this episode of the HYVG gaming podcast. In light of the recent news, we wanted to take a dive into the question “Do Video Games Cause Violence?” It’s a debate that seems to flare up every now and then, and we wanted to see if their was any merit to it.

Here’s a general outline of the episode.

  • In light of the Florida shooting, certain republicans are blaming violent video games and movies to divert from the gun control conversation. Do they have a point?
  • Are we more or less desensitized to violence in the modern world versus other times in history?
  • What do the studies say?
  • Even if they don’t cause real world violence, is there a moral problem with these games?
  • Is it fair to link this issue with school shootings?

We also reference different studies and articles. Here’s a list of many of the studies and articles that helped inform our decision.

We tried hard to find support for the argument that video games cause violent behavior, but couldn’t find any. Do you disagree with us? Do you have facts that support the counter-argument? Please share it in the comments below. We’d love to see your findings and dialogue about it.

#30 – Video Game Books AND More Factorio!

By | Video Game Podcast | No Comments

 

video game books podcastHave you ever read about a book that was based off of a video game that you played? What did you think about it? Are game developers creating books based off of their video game content as a cash grab? Are these books even worth reading? We really get into it on this one with varied opinions on the subject. If you’re looking for books based on video games you can also check out a post we did on the subject not too long ago.

Lastly, Gimmick and Lemonsmith are going ham on FACTORIO (starts at 43 min 10 second mark). They share why this game has captivated their heart, mind, and soul. We hope you like this episode!

Episode 27 – Asheron’s Call

By | Video Game Podcast | No Comments

Asherons CallIt’s all Asheron’s Call on this one. We love Asheron’s Call, and it will always have a special place in our hearts. We brought on two avid AC players (Tee Ess and LOLcifer) to share stories, talk about the scene since the official servers were taken down, and converse about what made this game so great.

If you’ve never played Asheron’s Call before – we apologize for all the jargon. We tried to explain some of the terms and systems that were unique to AC, but I’m sure that some parts may be confusing for you.

For those of you who enjoyed (or still enjoy) AC as much as we do, we hope you get a kick out of this podcast episode! We’ll have another AC episode in the future (specifically on Darktide) so if you have any great PvP stories make sure to hit us up.
