Trophy Whores 327 – Plus PlayStation Predictions

For the benefits of PlayStation Plus, the Trophy Whores willingly hand over that cold hard cash.  It’s hard to argue that PlayStation Plus isn’t a good deal.  You can try, but you might have more luck convincing Count Chocula that he shouldn’t be a year-round cereal.  He loves the spotlight.  Sure, Sony Computer Entertainment bumped the annual price to $60, but considering the free games, discounts and cloud saves, PlayStation Plus remains a fantastic way to fuel your gaming habit!

The PlayStation Experience, or PSX to fans of brevity, looms on the horizon, and the Trophy Whores make their predictions for the show.  They try to be as serious as possible, but you know that the guys have to toss out a few “off the wall” predictions.  Strangely, no one predicts that Thanos (from Avengers: Infinity War) is really the older, jaded and miserable brother of McDonald’s’ character Grimace, who reminds everyone of a fat purple Christmas tree.  Happy holidays!

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, PlayStation Plus (and Games with Gold), Fortnite, Assassin’s Creed Origins and Mega Man.

In a bit of big news, iHeartRadio streams episodes of Trophy Whores, which greatly expands the show’s footprint and reach. It’s a tremendous honor for the show to be part of iHeartRadio’s massive and respected community, and Proven Gamer have only the fans to thank for pushing the podcast to this point.  The Trophy Whores work hard to put out a quality weekly show, but they owe so much love to their listeners, who keep the show strong and growing.

Trophy Whores 323 – Dont Buy Metal Gear Survive

This week the Trophy Whores disseminate more information surrounding the demise of Dead Space creator, Visceral Games.  Remember when gamers lauded Electronic Arts for publishing Dead Space and Mirror’s Edge?  Yeah, that was a long time ago.  I think we’re back to grumbling about EA’s wicked ways.  Can you believe the nerve of whoever suggesting putting co-op gameplay in Dead Space 3?

Konami have revealed the release date for Metal Gear Survive, which, on Tricky’s scale of a car running over your foot to Stay Puft relocating your Manhattan digs, is a plastic pitchfork up the rear.  He’s not excited — or sure that Survive should be considered a Metal Gear game.  We all have opinions, but Tricky takes a firm stance whenever Hideo Kojima’s stealth-based mega-hit brainchild is on the tip of anyone’s tongue.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Metal Gear Survive, Grand Theft Auto V, Spider-Man, Guacamelee! 2, Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us 2.
