Trophy Whores 373 – Welcome Back, Tricky

Tricky returns after an extended hiatus, and, alongside Alex and Yield, discusses rumors surrounding Amazon and big news on the split between Bungie and Activision.  Even though Bungie has benefited from high-profile partnerships, you know that they are excited about their newfound autonomy.  Say goodbye to those early bedtimes!

Join the Trophy Whores as they catch up with Tricky and dive into the icy waters of pertinent topics.  It’s cold outside, but the banter is as warm as a steamy cup of cocoa. Cocoa, more than a prop that sits atop your Rocket League car!

We are happy and proud to share that Proven Gamer has partnered with the Humble Bundle! The Humble Bundle is a fantastic initiative and program that allows games to score a litany of games on the cheap — all while making charitable donations to various groups and organizations.

PG & Nintendo raise awareness for Stack-Up.org in Rockefeller Center

Stack-up.org invited Proven Gamer & Nintendo Duel Screens to the flagship Nintendo Store in NYC today for a charity event dedicated to raising awareness for their organization. Mario himself joined a group of gamers on a mission to help others as they played Arms and even got a sneak peak at a new mode in Splatoon 2, releasing later this week.

The event was chock full of ecstatic people, but not for the reason you would think. They weren’t there to just play the newest from Nintendo, but, rather, they were thrilled to tell you about what Stack-Up is all about.

A seven year old making a memory she’ll never forget

Stack-Up is a charity organization dedicated to providing gaming to veterans and soldiers in deployment. They do this in three ways:

  1. The Stacks – Local groups of civilians and veterans that get together to have fun and volunteer for military causes
  2. Supply Crates – They ship boxes of the latest games and consoles to troops in combat zones or recovering troops in military hospitals.
  3. Air Assaults – They fly deserving veterans to video gaming events (Pax, E3, ComicCon etc) for a VIP adventure of a lifetime.

If you would like to help out in any way, you can do so in the following ways:

  1. Make a Monetary Donation – www.paypal.me/stackupdotorg
  2. Donate Physical Items –

Sometimes, it is easy to lose sight on what is really important for life. Sometimes, we take our lives for granted. But it is days like today that remind us of what is important, and that other people may not have it as good as you do. Stack-Up is doing incredible things to help keep things in prospective.

Stack-Up is a 501(c) Tax-Exempt Organization that supports veterans and active duty troops across the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and other NATO allied countries around the world.
