Trophy Whores 259 – Shell-Shocked By Superheroes

Nate is not a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan.  The former unofficial fifth Trophy Whore has never been afraid to brandish his opinion like a bludgeon, so you know that he can be brutal.  Nate dismantles Mutants in Manhattan.  Donny is a bit less harsh when describing his experience with Mutants in Manhattan, but, unfortunately, if you have been expecting another Turtles in Time, then you need to lower your expectations.  Rocksteady and Bebop deserve much better.

In that same vein, of heroes being super, The Trophy Whores, as well as Nate and Lucia, bounce from the Heroes in a Half-Shell to Charles Xavier’s X-Men, who must stop the wrath of Apocalypse from destroying our world.  Smart money is on the X-Men.  Even if there are casualties along the way, the X-Men always seem to come out on top.  Xavier doesn’t train wimps.

Nathan Drake and Batman are pretty super, too, and if you consider how often Drake saves the day, as well as how often he escapes peril, then we can safely and legitimately call him a superhero.  Drake is a hero, so why don’t we take that extra step.  Batman has been a revered superhero for decades, but now that Rocksteady Games’ Arkham series has gamed so much fame, we can all appreciate the Dark Knight’s badassery so much more.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, Helldivers, Hitman: Agent 47, Overwatch, and No Man’s Sky.  The mystery surrounding No Man’s Sky has garnered a lot of press and attention from gamers; however, if you want to play No Man’s Sky, then you will have to wait a little longer, as the game has been delayed.  In the meantime, Nate recommends Overwatch, which has received positive reviews left and right.

Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass and Premium Edition Announced


Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment has announced a Season Pass for the hotly anticipated title, Batman: Arkham Knight that will run you about $40 if purchased on its own, or in a new Premium Edition that will cost you about $100 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but not PC, for some unknown reason.

The Season Pass previously mentioned will provide you with DLC for about six months after the game’s release on June 23rd, 2015. I don’t know exactly what kind of DLC, but Warner Brothers Interactive says to expect “new story missions, additional super-villains invading Gotham City, legendary Batmobile skins, advanced challenge maps, alternative character skins, and new driveable race tracks.”

A new trailer came out this week that shows off the darker tone and the apparent tag team mechanic that is in the new Batman title. You can find that trailer below.

Batman: Arkham Knight is coming June 23rd for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One; with Mac and Linux coming at a later date.
