Trophy Whores 310 – Mega Man in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

We should call this the Double Dragon podcast, because Alex and Yield are tearing it up in the streets and spreading the gospel of Trophy Whores: Platinum trophies.  If we changed the name, confusion could ensue, as as people might expect a podcast about the video game series Double Dragon.  Billy and Jimmy don’t want…

Trophy Whores 309 – Crash into the Frozen Wilds

This week, you’re listening to the world’s greatest tag team: Alex and Yield.  Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas?  As good as they were, they weren’t even the best tag team in WWE during their run.  It’s true.  While they have shown their prowess in a wrestling ring, I doubt that either Benjamin or Haas have…

Trophy Whores 308 – Lucia’s Last Stand

We promise this story won’t involve a mutant cure or an ill-conceived Dark Phoenix arc.  This week we bid farewell to another long-serving host, as Lucia, or Mark, if you prefer, follows his dream to become a world-renowned JRPG play-tester.  Since he’s a big fan of wrestling, and World Wrestling Entertainment in particular, we can’t…

Trophy Whores 307 – Lick it Like a Polaroid Picture

Maybe it’s an Ohio thing.  Yield might have misspoke, because Andre 3000 didn’t teach him to do that.  Or maybe it’s an Ohio thing. We live in strange times. This week we reveal the winner of the Trophy Whores E3 predictions battle royale.  While the ruling was appealed by at least two Trophy Whores, in…

Trophy Whores 306 – One-Hour PlayStation Sizzle Reel

During their E3 2017 showcase, Sony Interactive Entertainment seemed to have traded long-winded monologues for a nearly constant stream of game videos.  Truth be told, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Shawn Layden didn’t have much to say during the showcase.  People seem split in their opinions.  Alex liked the press conference, while Mark and…

Trophy Whores 305 – Expo of Platinum Prophecies

This week, we share our predictions for the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017.  As every year, the competition is fierce.  Alex and Mark are each looking to claim his first victory, while Tricky and Yield look to repeat previous wins.  Yield has won twice; Tricky won last year.  While everyone is confident that he has the…

Trophy Whores 303 – More Rangers Jokes than a Senators Bar

We don’t dislike the New York Rangers; however, Tricky talks a lot of trash, so when his team takes a nosedive in the playoffs, you know that he will catch hell.  Guest host Stephen, also a Rangers fan, weathers the storm as best he can, but, like being tossed around in an F5 tornado, it’s…

Trophy Whores 302 – Mass Effect Loses the Need for Speed

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. In recent weeks, a vocal minority has complained that my contributions vary from the core content of the show, and I feel that this unwanted discussion has irked listeners and sullied the unquestionable reputation of the…

Trophy Whores 301 – The Troyce of Reason Yields

With episode 300 in the books, we return to our normally scheduled shenanigans.  As always, we warn you that silliness and sarcasm abound.  We assume that’s what you’re here for.  Don’t let anyone tell you not to end a sentence in a preposition. As we inch closer to summer, when the pool of noteworthy games…

Trophy Whores 300 – Live on iHeartRadio

We’ve certainly come a long way. Through all of the years, episodes and rotating seats, not to mention the bickering and friendly ribbing, the Trophy Whores have made it to episode 300.  It’s a momentous occasion, and we’ve got reason to celebrate!  First and foremost, we thank everyone who has helped push us here —…

Trophy Whores Fireside Chat 3 – We Just Stallin

It’s a tremendous honor for the show to be part of iHeartRadio’s massive and respected community, and Proven…

Trophy Whores – Fireside Chat 2: Origin of Trophy Whores

Here we are again.  Like Alex has said, the Trophy Whores Fireside Chats might have to become a series.  After overwhelmingly positive feedback from the first show, Alex and Tricky sit down again by the fireside and shoot the breeze in an informal chat.  We’re still putting together the best possible episode 300; however, we…

Trophy Whores – Fireside Chat

This week the Trophy Whores pay homage to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, former president of the United States of America.  In lieu of episode 300, which still needs time to bake in the oven, the guys opt to record a freewheeling show, which features Tricky and Troy’s tales from the PAXlands, as well as a meaty,…

Trophy Whores 299 – Beauty and the PAX East

While Tricky and Troy are cruising the show floor at PAX East 2017, the triumphant trophy-touting trio of Mark, Alex and Yield discuss the biggest PlayStation news to emanate from Boston.  Although the original Penny Arcade Expo, PAX Prime, has spawned annual sister shows, and dropped its “Prime” moniker, seemingly lessening the impact of each…

Trophy Whores 298 – PAX East On The Horizon

Last Tuesday, Sony Computer Entertainment shared a gem with the gaming world, and we’re feeling the aftershocks.  Yes, we’re in the midst of Horizon Zero Dawn release week, and you know that the Trophy Whores are talking miles about Guerilla Games new open-world action game.  The opinions differ in certain areas, but, unsurprisingly, the guys…

Trophy Whores 297 – Zero Dawn On The Horizon

Horizon: Zero Dawn has arrived.  Finally.  After much hype and press, we can blast through Guerilla Games’ latest creation, in which giant machines roam a lush world where nature thrives and humans live primitive lives.  You need to aim well, gamer.  We’ve got a nasty fight on our hands.  And Alex can’t be happier. “Now, bring…
