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…

Unreleased Crash Bandicoot Level Released as DLC

Trophy Whores 310 – Mega Man in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

We should call this the Double Dragon podcast, because Alex and Yield are tearing it up in the streets and spreading the gospel of Trophy Whores: Platinum trophies.  If we changed the name, confusion could ensue, as as people might expect a podcast about the video game series Double Dragon.  Billy and Jimmy don’t want…

Trophy Whores 309 – Crash into the Frozen Wilds

This week, you’re listening to the world’s greatest tag team: Alex and Yield.  Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas?  As good as they were, they weren’t even the best tag team in WWE during their run.  It’s true.  While they have shown their prowess in a wrestling ring, I doubt that either Benjamin or Haas have…

Trophy Whores 308 – Lucia’s Last Stand

We promise this story won’t involve a mutant cure or an ill-conceived Dark Phoenix arc.  This week we bid farewell to another long-serving host, as Lucia, or Mark, if you prefer, follows his dream to become a world-renowned JRPG play-tester.  Since he’s a big fan of wrestling, and World Wrestling Entertainment in particular, we can’t…

Crash Bandicoot Spun me to the PlayStation Brand

Crash Bandicoot changed my gaming habits. When you’re 10 years old, and a fan of silly cartoon characters who emit bright colors and flash stupid grins, Crash Bandicoot doesn’t need to say much to grab your attention.  Despite undeniable charm, Naughty Dog’s furry orange tornado uttered fewer sentences than a Ballpark hot dog. In 1995,…

Trophy Whores 299 – Beauty and the PAX East

While Tricky and Troy are cruising the show floor at PAX East 2017, the triumphant trophy-touting trio of Mark, Alex and Yield discuss the biggest PlayStation news to emanate from Boston.  Although the original Penny Arcade Expo, PAX Prime, has spawned annual sister shows, and dropped its “Prime” moniker, seemingly lessening the impact of each…

Trophy Whores 296 – Crash Through the News

The Trophy Whores are barreling toward episode 300 like an 18-wheeler on an icy mountain road.  They can’t be stopped.  They won’t be stopped! To 300 — and beyond! As we move through winter, the news is picking up.  There’s much to talk about this week, and the Trophy Whores rip through headlines like a…

Trophy Whores 290 – Great Shuhei in the Sky

Tragedy has hit the Proven Gamer PlayStation family.  We aren’t seven days into 2017, and Mark has lost his (second) PlayStation 4.  On the bright side, it seems that Mark was able to save his Final Fantasy XV progress, and he has an excuse to buy a PlayStation 4 Pro, which will pair nicely with…
