Trophy Whores 381 – Interview with Bombfest Lead Dev Zac Pierce

This week the Trophy Whores welcome a special guest: Zac Pierce, the lead developer of critically acclaimed and praised indie party game Bombfest.  Zac shares insights on the latest goings-on in the video game industry, and he goes in-depth about his dynamite smash-hit, which he describes as “sumo wrestling with bombs.” To be honest, it’s the perfect description.  For more information on Bombfest, check out the official web site.  Zac and Bombfest will be presenting at the Indie Megabooth at PAX East, so if you’re at the convention, be sure to give Bombfest a spin.

Join the Trophy Whores — and super awesome guest and game developer Zac — as they discuss, among other things, God of War, Activision, Death Stranding and The Division 2.  We also promise groan-worthy bomb puns.

Trophy Whores 380 – Anthem for the Craven-Dick Wedding

Apparently, players are having a lot of problems with Electronic Arts’ Anthem.  We want to give EA some credit for their library of games, but, oftentimes, they make it so hard.  EA does have a tendency to piss off its customers while trying to make a buck.  Ask a Star Wars fan.  Ask a Dead Space fan.  Ask a Mirror’s Edge fan.  The point is, you won’t get anywhere good when looking for a trove of goodwill with EA’s name on it.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, God of War, The Division 2, Horizon Zero Dawn and Anthem.

Trophy Whores 343 – God of War Ushers in E3 News

Well, after a few short breaths to recover from PAX East, we’re discussing early news for E3 2018.  While it might seem obvious that Anthem and Fortnite have been pegged for the biggest annual electronic entertainment expo in the U.S., we take every opportunity possible to discuss Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2 — the sequel to Tricky’s favorite video game.

Ubisoft is building hype for The Division 2, and while we’ve shared some cheap laughs at the expense of The Division, the original game, Tricky hasn’t let that damper his excitement for the sequel.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, the Mega Man X Legacy Collection, Donkey Kong and God of War.  It’s going to be a momentous week for PlayStation 4 owners, as we — finally — get God of War.  After brutalizing and humiliating the gods of Mt. Olympus, Kratos steps into Norse mythology, which sets him against new foes — some of who are, you know, kind of enormous.  And while Kratos has a checkered past, he’s once again a father, so we get to see a new dynamic of the storied antihero.  This time, maybe we can remove the “anti” label from his description.  If Atreus can anchor Kratos’ heart, then we might be able to see the heroic side of Kratos that has been buried deep beneath pain and torment.  We’ve had glimpses of hero Kratos, but they have been mere flickers of light in a dark, vengeful and bloody history.

Anthem Gameplay Closes Microsoft Conference

After a getting a short teaser trailer at Electronic Arts’ show last night, Anthem, from BioWare, was shown on running on Xbox One X.

Anthem will be an open-world game. The gameplay trailer started with the lead character in a town square. She is given the task of retrieving some workers. Anthem puts players in the hand of freelancers who explore and protect humanity from the threats outside of the wall.

After getting the mission, the trailer introduced an array of exosuits known as javelins. These will be customizable suits. The two characters dove off the wall and used a jetpack to explore the world outside of the wall. Each suit will have different features. The shown, the Ranger and Colossus featured a balanced and tank style suit.

The first look at combat revealed third-person gunplay and abilities that appeared to be on a cool-down timer. The exo-suits will allow players to equip abilities that will allow them to approach combat in different ways. Along with beasts, enemies called Scars also attacked the characters. They appeared to be humanoid, firing projectiles.

Anthem also appears to have drop-in gameplay, as two new players joined the party mid-mission before being confronted by a huge electric storm. The trailer ended with characters going into the storm.

Anthem will be a multiplatform release in 2018.

Stay tuned to Proven Gamer for future coverage of E3.
