Trophy Whores 393 – E3 2019: Sony Steps Away; Microsoft Steps Up

This week, the Trophy Whores dig into the press conferences from E3 2019.  Sony, of course, decided not to attend, which gave Microsoft the opportunity to hog the spotlight.  Nintendo, too, made gamers cheer with big announcements and elating surprises.  After the annual explosion of news, as only E3 can provide, the Trophy Whores have more to discuss than Games of Thrones fans who hate season eight.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, the biggest news from the Microsoft, Nintendo, Bethesda, Ubisoft and Square Enix press conferences.

Trophy Whores 377 – Xbox Live Bleeds into Nintendo Waters

Microsoft wants to expand its Xbox Live service beyond their proprietary home console.  And computer.  Xbox Live has been on PCs for a dog’s age.  Microsoft wants you to access to your Xbox Live account on PCs, phones, toasters and milk cartons — although some of that technology is light years away.  For now, or at least shortly, we will have to settle for phones and rival video game consoles.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, the spread of Xbox Live — to infinity but not beyond — and Sony Computer Entertainment’s planned absence from the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo.

Trophy Whores 306 – One-Hour PlayStation Sizzle Reel

During their E3 2017 showcase, Sony Interactive Entertainment seemed to have traded long-winded monologues for a nearly constant stream of game videos.  Truth be told, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Shawn Layden didn’t have much to say during the showcase.  People seem split in their opinions.  Alex liked the press conference, while Mark and Yield were disappointed.

Aside from Monster Hunter and Shadow of the Colossus, Sony didn’t have many surprises for their viewers and fans; however, if you watched the showcase, then you saw a litany of great and exciting games.  If you own a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation VR, then E3 2017 has given you reason to smile.  If nothing else, it has been nice to see Supermassive Games, developer of the highly acclaimed game Until Dawn, so entwined with PlayStation’s immediate future.

You might want to buckle up.  Over the course of the next couple hours, we’re going to cover everything from Sony’s E3 showcase, as well as the hour-long pre-show. Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Life is Strange, Days Gone, God of War, Inpatient and Spider-Man.

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.
