Qué hacés, macho?


Explanation:
Tyler, antes de que me lluevan cosas pesadas te aclaro que así es cómo saludaría un argentino (en realidad porteño, es decir, de Buenos Aires) relativamente joven, en un contexto hiper informal (como indica "dude"). Si en lugar de joven fuera adolescente, probablemente diría "Qué hacés, boludo?". Y si te quedan dudas (te entendería!) te paso con alguno de mis primos o sobrinos : )

¿Qué hay?


Explanation:
Creo que depende en gran parte de la región, sobre todo en la forma de traducir "dude", yo usaría solo "¿qué hay?), es más global y conserva el concepto.
