Psychonauts 2: Queepie location side-quest guide

You have a major mission ahead of you when you rejoin Raz and the Psychonauts in Psychonauts 2, but there are plenty of other things in the game that will draw your attention away. If you’re ever feeling like you need a bit of a breather from delving into the deepest crevasses of people’s minds, there are plenty of side quests and optional objectives to distract you for a little bit. Plus, you can also earn yourself some achievements or trophies and PSI Challenge Markers for your effort.

Perhaps the most difficult side mission in Psychonauts 2 is given to you by none other than Raz’s own family. His little brother, Queepie, has gone missing, and it’s up to you to find him. Finding him once would be simple — too simple, it seems — which is why Queepie will continue to run off until you track him down a total of six times and tell him to get back to the family at camp. You will get some clues as to where he’s hidden himself when you get close, but if you don’t know what to look for, this little guy can easily slip under your radar. Here are all of his hiding spots in order in Psychonauts 2.

This quest will likely trigger as you are playing the game, but if not, it is very easy to get started. Once you enter the Questionable Area of the map for the first time, head to the Aquato camp, located on the right side of the map. Raz’s family, who would have shown up in the Motherlobe by this point in the game, will have relocated here and set up camp. You can easily track them down by following the road.

Once you find Raz’s family again, talk with his mother, who will give you two optional quests, one of which is to find his lost brother, Queepie. The only clue you get is that somewhere close to where Queepie is hiding, there’s radio music playing since the reason he’s gone off is to find a place to dance. The one upside is that he won’t leave the Questionable Area, so you won’t have to search the entire hub for this little dude.

Queepie hiding spot No. 1

Queepie’s first hiding spot is an easy one to kick things off. Just go outside the camp and around to the water wheel next to the horseshoe pit. Follow the music to find him sitting on a rock with his radio. Interact with him to trigger the next phase of the quest as he runs off to hide somewhere else.

Queepie hiding spot No. 2

Next, locate the Sassyclops cave. From the Aquato camp, the cave is right across from the horseshoe pit you were just at. Go through the cave, platforming your way to the end, and jump over to Queepie sitting on the wooden scaffolding.

The easiest way to reach the third hiding spot is to fast-travel to the forest entrance location. You’ll hear the music, but figuring out where it’s actually coming from is the hard part. Queepie will actually be directly above, in the trees. To get up to him, climb up the vines on a nearby tree, next to an arrow sign pointing down. Cross the tightrope, climb up some more vines, and you can jump onto a wooden walkway leading to a little roofed area with Queepie underneath.

Queepie hiding spot No. 4

Queepie has gone rather far from camp this time, taking you all the way over to where the funicular is next to the Forgetful Forest. To get up to his perch this time, use the building beside the bathrooms to reach a ladder you can climb up into the nearby tree. Jump to another platform with a tightrope on it, cross that, and climb up the pole to a bush you can use to spring yourself up to higher platforms. At the end of these, just walk around the platform until you reach Queepie at the end overlooking the area.

Queepie hiding spot No. 5

Queepie seems to have taken pity on us for the last couple of hiding spots because this one is dead simple to reach. Just go over to the Lumberstack Diner, bounce off the roof of the car next to the building to get onto the roof, and walk around the top to find him jamming out.

Queepie hiding spot No. 6

Queepie tries hiding a little closer to home this time, being almost directly above his family’s camp. Getting to his perch, though, requires you to first use your pyrokinesis to light the campfire and ride the hot air up so you can climb up onto a platform just above the entrance to the camp. Follow the path, use a bush to bounce further to another path, and use yet another bush to spring off of. This final path ends with a bar you can grab and safely drop onto the platform that Queepie is sitting on. Talk to him one last time to put this quest to bed and earn yourself the Dance, Baby, Dance achievement or trophy.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2: Heart of Chornobyl: release date predictions, trailers, gameplay

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl is the next hotly anticipated entry in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise. The game is releasing over 13 years after the last entry in the series, and it's making its debut on consoles as an Xbox Series X exclusive.

GSC Game World, just one of the many European developers, is currently in the midst of an aggressive invasion from Russian forces that has caused their entire lives to be disrupted. In their efforts to support their country's freedom, the team has put development on pause to "help our employees and their families to survive." Other game companies, such as EA and CD Projekt, have also shown support for the Ukrainian people by halting sales and the representation of Russia in their games.

Alan Wake 2: release date, trailers, gameplay, preorder, and more
Alan Wake.

The original Alan Wake is a game that went through quite a troubled development before it was finally released. After many iterations and changes in scope and direction, the final product was initially a cult hit, but didn't hit the mass market it needed -- at least not initially. After two DLC episodes, a sequel was in the works to build upon the first game and revive some of the elements that had to be cut from the first in order for it to ship, but this was ultimately not meant to be. The sequel was canceled and a smaller downloadable game, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, was released instead.

Since then, we hadn't heard from our intrepid writer until he showed up in a very unlikely place. Featured in the AWE expansion for a completely different game, Control, Alan was back in the picture. With a remaster of the initial game catching everyone up on his first appearance, now was the perfect time to announce that the long-awaited sequel was back in development. We haven't found all the manuscript pages yet, but here is everything we know about Alan Wake 2.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Gamescom trailer confirms delay, but looks fantastic
A Stalker from Stalker 2 look off in the distance with a radioactive symbol behind him.

At Gamescom 2023, Ukrainian game developer GSC Game World gave another update on its highly anticipated first-person shooter horror game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl. It did push the game back until next year, but we also got our best look yet at gameplay in a new trailer.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl — Bolts & Bullets Trailer
The trailer begins with the player emerging from a sewer into the game's irradiated wasteland. We see the player slowly move around a few different environments before shooting at a supernatural enemy in a facility. The trailer only gets more intense from there as we see the player kit out their gun before taking on a variety of enemies, from humans to dogs to more disgusting-looking supernatural enemies. At the end of the trailer, we learn that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will now launch in the first quarter of 2024 and that preorders are finally open.
This long-awaited sequel to a PC cult classic has had a very turbulent development. It was originally supposed to be released in April 2022, but has gotten delayed multiple times due to development challenges and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Some of its developers are fighting with the Ukrainian Armed Forces, while others moved to the Czech Republic to finish the game. On top of all of that, GSC Game World has faced multiple cyberattacks and game leaks it attributes to Russia.

Despite all of the challenges GSC Game World has faced in the development of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, the game seems to be shaping up nicely. This new trailer is full of intense action and very atmospheric moments, and previews from people playing the game at Gamescom 2023 are positive. Hopefully, GSC Game World can take this positive momentum and meet its new release window.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl will launch sometime in the first quarter of 2024 for PC and Xbox Series X/S.
