We’re still feeling the effects of Troy’s absence.  The DesTroyer of Insipid Arguments, who can lawyer you faster than Reggie Fils-Aime can smirk, has decided to leave Trophy Whores in light of backlash from a vocal minority of listeners.  We thought that everyone liked Zelda, Donkey Kong, Captain Falcon and Little Mac. We miss you,…

End Of Business

After much deliberation, I, the Troyce of Reason and desTroyer of insipid arguments, vacate my seat on Trophy Whores.
