Trophy Whores 340 – In the Shadow of God of War

By now, it’s surprising that we don’t have a LEGO game set in the Pixar universe.  Toy Story seems ripe for an adaptation, but if a LEGO Incredibles game includes some of Pixar’s most beloved characters, such as Rex, Sully and Heimlich, then we’re all in for a treat.  Sometimes, we could all go for a trip to Pizza Planet, followed by a few scoops of softball-sized ice cream.  Sprinkles are optional — but encouraged.

And while LEGO Incredibles hasn’t been officially announced, we’re learning more (and more) about God of War, which is so close that we can almost lick it like a Polaroid picture.  God of War focuses a lot of attention on Atreus, Kratos’ son, who seems to be the anchor for Kratos’ mortality, as well as the light that shows the endearing side of Kratos, who is best known for yelling at things and then murdering them.  If God of War is going to unlock its full potential, then we don’t need a new mythos or new monsters, we need to see deeper into Kratos’ soul and consciousness.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Bloodborne, The Legend Zelda: Breath of the Wild, A Way Out, Star Wars and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.  Shit.  We’ve got a full plate this week.  You have to finish the slices of pizza before you can eat ice cream.  And before you leave Pizza Planet, play the claw game.  I hear the prizes are particularly friendly — and green!
