Trophy Whores 332 – A Recurring Case of Anal Glaucoma

Tricky can reel off Marvel’s Infinity Stones from memory.  Let’s all give him a round of applause.

According to the PlayStation Blog, Horizon Zero Dawn was the king of all things PlayStation in 2017.  Congratulations to Guerrilla Games and Aloy, as they took home an impressive amount of honors and awards — as decided by PlayStation users and fans.  We hope that it isn’t too long until we again pal around with the fiery and brave Nora warrior.  After all, we’re never safe from the robot menace.

This week, Tricky and Alex cover a lot of ground and seem to discuss anything — and nearly everything — that is on their minds.  From the first (ever) WWE women’s Royal Rumble to smoke breaks for employees, if you want a podcast that is as delicious as a fried bologna sandwich, then you’ve found it!

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Inside, Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered, Dark Souls: Remastered and Horizon Zero.

Trophy Whores 320 – Phantom Assassins of October

It’s finally October, which means that you’re about to binge on horror movies, beautiful foliage and PlayStation Plus freebies.  If you’re a real Looney Tune, then you’re downing large cups of pumpkin-spice, candy corn milkshakes. I may have invented — just now — the most disgusting drink served hot or cold — aside from gin.  Have you had gin?  It’s absolutely disgusting.  I’d rather drink some Frankenstein combo of pickle juice and peanut oil.

Even if you aren’t a fan of horror movies, you can still enjoy the festivities of fall.  Extra Life is one month away, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is available to download as part of October’s PlayStation Plus free offerings.  To boot, Ubisoft is letting loose Assassin’s Creed: Origins on October 27, so you can soon take an inexpensive trip to ancient Egypt.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Infamous Second Son, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Rocksteady Studios.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins to Double as an Interactive Museum

This is not an onion article. This is not a joke.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins will receive a free update post-release adding a mode dubbed “Discovery Tour”. Releasing sometime in 2018, Discovery Tour will take assets from the game and place them throughout the open world. Players can visit places like Alexandria, Memphis, the Nile delta, the Giza plateau, the Faiyum Oasis, and the Great Sand Seas to see NPCs going about their daily routine. In place of combat is a series of guided tours meant to teach players about the games setting and historical significance all arranged by actual historians.

When asked about how this mode came about Creative Director Jean Guesdon had this to say:

“From the beginning, the Assassin’s Creed franchise has always explored pivotal moments in history, from the Third Crusade to the Italian Renaissance, and this year Ancient Egypt. It’s a dream come true for us to offer Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, an educational mode built specifically for people to learn more about the incredible history of Ancient Egypt through the interactive experience made possible via a video game.”

Assassin’s Creed has always been a bright spot in games that teeter toward educational without being too in your face about it. Now those of us that may have wanted a bit more context with all our bloody, brutal combat can have just that.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins is set to release on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on October 27th.

Trophy Whores 312 – Brolin Warps into Deadpool 2

He’s back!  Who’s back?  I guess you’ll have to listen to find out.

We don’t often lean on teasers, but when we do, they’re hot enough to scorch the flame on a Magmar’s tail.

This week, Alex continues his quest to earn the Platinum trophy in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.  He’s well on his way, considering that he has two of the three Platinums.  Thanks to PlayStation Plus, we’ve got new Instant Game Collection titles for August, and one of the games opens an Assassin’s Creed discussion — during which Alex isn’t completely pessimistic.  According to Alex, if you set a game in ancient Egypt, you’re already one step closer to success.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Crash Bandicoot: Warped, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and Deadpool 2 — the movie!

Josh Brolin, who has starred in movies like The Goonies, Mimic and No Country for Old Men, has been cast as Nathan Summers in the upcoming Deadpool sequel.  We’re sure that Ryan Reynolds is pleased, as no one in his or her right mind can object to Brolin playing Scott and Jean’s gruff and tough son.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Gets Reveal Trailer on Xbox One X

After many leaks and rumors, the first official trailer for Assasin’s Creed Origins was revealed. The trailer’s narrator introduced us to the beginning of the Assassins, as the brotherhood of killers was born. The playable character in the game was revealed as Bayek, who was introduced as an Egyptian sheriff.

Gameplay was then shown. Using an eagle, the trailer showed several environments before it returned to Bayek. He  rode into the first village Siwa, a village of stone and clay. Bayek used the eagle to mark enemies,and survey the area. After finding his target, Bayek did some classic Assassin’s Creed platforming, as he scaled a wall before taking out an enemy with his bow. Bayek, showing off his stealth tactics, used grass for cover.

Role-playing game elements were also shown, as Bayek found and equipped a bow with better stats. After dropping in on some enemies, Bayek took to melee combat.  It looked similar to old Assassin’s Creed combat, with Bayek dodging and deflecting incoming attacks.

Assassin’s Creed Origins will launch on October 27.

Stay tuned to Proven Gamer for future coverage of E3.

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, Troy.  We know that it has been only one episode, but we miss you.  We had a good run.

Mass Effect Andromeda was supposed to re-invigorate BioWare’s sweeping and massive space odyssey; however, instead, the game created a rift between longtime fans.  Electronic Arts, BioWare’s parent company and video game publishing boogeyman, has decided to slow the turnaround on a sequel.  Given that Mass Effect is, uh, massively popular, we have no doubt that BioWare’s biggest franchise has an equally large future.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Mass Effect, BioWare Montreal, Square Enix and Need for Speed.

If we are being honest, and I feel that I speak for everyone on the show, we would trade Need of Speed for Split/Second any (and every) day of the week.  Long live the memory of Disney’s Black Rock Studio!

Trophy Whores 260 – Helldive Into Doom

While Yield is fending off polar bears and killer whales in Alaska, the Trophy Whores — and Lucia — carry the torch through episode 260.  Lucia, who is a strong candidate to become the unofficial fifth Trophy Whore, joins the Whoresmen for the third week in a row.  If anyone can handle the silliness and absurdity that is the Trophy Whores podcast, it’s the man called Ionvein.

Between the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game, Mutants in Manhattan, and the latest movie, Out of the Shadows, pop culture is inundated in the ooze of the Heroes in a Half-Shell. Despite the low scores that Mutants in Manhattan has received, Donny probably ranks it above Watch Dogs, which is getting a sequel before summer of 2017.  Donny will, surely, have a terse spoken review — even if he doesn’t play the game.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, Helldivers, Doom, Watch Dogs 2 and Assassin’s Creed.  The Trophy Whores are all over the place this week, but that means that you get more bang for your buck.  It’s like walking into a restaurant and ordering spaghetti, and when you finally get your food, the server brings you a plate of pasta and an ice cream sundae.  Strap in for an adventure fit for four teenage turtles named after Renaissance painters.

Trophy Whores 245 – Mercs With Platinums

While you were at the movies watching Deadpool, Tricky was braiding Barbie’s hair — as all good fathers do.  With plenty of years of experience under his belt, Tricky styles and braids doll hair like a pro.

Despite his fatherly duties, Tricky has seen Deadpool, and — obviously — he recommends that kids stay away.  If you take your kids to see Deadpool, then you are probably the same parent who will let your kids play Grand Theft Auto.  Beyond that, you most likely feed your children rusty nail sandwiches.

Join our team of Marvel foulmouthed mercenaries as we discuss Deadpool, Firewatch, Silent Hills, Assassin’s Creed and The Walking Dead.  As Alex prepares to play LEGO Marvel Superheroes, he hopes Deadpool shows up.  Granted, Deadpool would have to mind his manners.  The Merc with a Mouth isn’t kid-friendly.

Trophy Whores 225 – 197 Hours In 12 Days

Tricky likes Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and he likes it a lot.  As in, if Tricky could play The Phantom Pain or pick up a winning lottery ticket stuffed in a Spicy Chicken Sandwich (from Wendy’s), he would play The Phantom Pain.  What is wrong with him? Doesn’t he know that Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich is delicious?

We continue our “Game of the Year” debate, pitting Fallout 4 against Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  I guess we have our frontrunners.  If Naughty Dog were releasing a new Crash Bandicoot, it would be a different story.  It would be a three-horse race, and the orange marsupial would be out in front.

Join our horned council of ardent Darth Maul fans, as we discuss, among other things, Rain, Trivia Crack, Guitar Hero Live, Rock Band 4, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Crash Bandicoot and Star Wars.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey Announced

Panache Digital Games, the studio co-founded by Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Creative Director Patrice Désilets, announced today their very first project, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a third person action-adventure survival episodic game. In each episode, you guys and gals are going to relive the greatest moments of mankind with a documentary stylization.

While that’s not a lot to go on, I’m imagining something very similar to something Telltale would make or even Life is Strange. However, the documentary take is quite interesting from someone who’s played a lot of these types of games.

Panache didn’t go on to say a whole lot more other than “stay tuned much more to come in 2015!”

For all things Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey and other news, be sure to check back here on Proven Gamer every day for some really cool articles.
