Trophy Whores – 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s the most wonderful — and stressful — time of the year, when video games fly at you like thirsty vampire bats in a dark, abandoned mine shaft.  Prepare to holster your elation as your grandmother gives you those utterly embarrassing “World’s Best Grandchild” and “I Love my Grandchild” sweaters that you secretly adore.  We hope that you saved the gift receipts to the MLB bobbleheads that Uncle Remus bought you, because you’re going to return all of that worthless holiday loot so that you can fuel your love of video games!  For those who speak “Hank Hill,” we’re talking the season of giving — giving vidya games.

Lock and load!

Join Alex, Yield, Stephen and Sid, as they round up the top-tier PlayStation 4 games to gift to the PS4 lovers in your life.

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.

NEW YORK SNARK EXCHANGE: BIOSHOCK INFINITE (part 1)

9064442657_1be84234e2_hTHIS WEEK: Tom, Ray and Chris crawl out of the ocean and take to the skies with Bioshock Infinite. It’s a 2 part special which sees the guys trade plasmids for vigors and tiny creepy girls for a #TEEN with weird time powers. Oh and there’s a giant metal birb, that’s pretty cool imo, and I’m definitely going to refer to it as Dongbird at some point during the stream.

Assuming nothing goes wrong (something will!), the stream will start TOMORROW, also known as Wednesday, at 9:30 EST! Watch the stream here, or on Proven Gamer’s twitch channel. And make sure to favorite and follow The New York Snark Exchange on Twitter and Facebook!

Trophy Whores 226 – Migraines Outta This World

While you are listening to this episode, Donny is freaking out about the dangers of virtual gaming.  According to him, virtual headsets are whack.  Donny isn’t always right, but he talks as if he is the smartest man in the world.  Given his taste in movies, which generally opposes popular opinion, you should know that Donny isn’t afraid to swim upstream.

Tricky, on the other hand, has retired from Trivia Crack — after less than 20 games!  He dons a cape of cowardice, as he refuses to accept Alex’s challenges and game invites.  Who runs from a friendly challenge?  The Cowardly Crusader rises again!

Join our powerful quartet of trivia nerds and PlayStation admirers, as we discuss, among other things, Mighty No. 9, Gravity Rush, BioShock, Resident Evil and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.  What’s more, Tricky updates us on his trek through Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  If you crunch the numbers, you will find that Tricky has more time invested into The Phantom Pain than the builders of the Titanic put into that “unsinkable” ship.
