Trophy Whores 389 – The Nightmares of Days Gone and the Dreams of E3

On another exciting and excellent episode of Trophy Whores, the guys share early E3 news and mull the list of confirmed (and rumored) games set to appear at the Colossus of Rhodes of video game shows … in the States.  The Mount Rushmore of American video game-a-paloozas.  Yes, we’re already talking about the Electronic Entertainment Expo, and we can’t wait to see what Sony has in … store.  Whoops.

Tricky and Yield have been playing Sony Computer Entertainment’s latest AAA game, Days Gone, and they go head to head in a discussion that includes no bickering or arguing whatsoever.  Exciting!!  Does Days Gone live up to the hype?  Does a grilled cheese sandwich taste good at midnight?  We’ll answer one of these questions on episode 389 of the Trophy Whores show!

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.

Trophy Whores 303 – More Rangers Jokes than a Senators Bar

We don’t dislike the New York Rangers; however, Tricky talks a lot of trash, so when his team takes a nosedive in the playoffs, you know that he will catch hell.  Guest host Stephen, also a Rangers fan, weathers the storm as best he can, but, like being tossed around in an F5 tornado, it’s a rough ride — much like the Rangers second-round series against the Ottawa Senators.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Abzu, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Lego Marvel Superheroes 2.

Unsurprisingly, Warner Bros. Interactive and and Traveler’s Tales have announced Lego Marvel Superheroes 2, a follow-up to, in Alex’s opinion, the best Lego video game.  After spending ages developing Lego Star Wars games, Traveler’s Tales seems intent to release 20,000 games starring Marvel and DC Comics characters.  So, 20,000 is probably an exaggerated number; however, it’s difficult to argue that Traveler’s Tales isn’t making the most of their licensing deals.

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 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 convention, it’s always exciting to read the news that breaks at each show, as well as the games that appear.  If you are a gamer, and if you’re reading this, we assume that you are, then you’re never sorry to talk about a PAX.

In response to popular demand, Mark, otherwise known as Lucia, also known as the ionvein, hosts episode 299 and leads us through all of the hottest news in the PlayStation ecosystem.  Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Zero dawns remains a hot topic, as Aloy and her grand adventure continue to win the hearts and praise of the gaming community.  Horizon Zero Dawn is a magnificent game, and it, as well as Guerrilla Games, deserves all of the praise it has received.  You can’t celebrate the game without praising its makers, Guerrilla Games.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Horizon Zero Dawn, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Friday the 13th: The Game and Diablo III.

In a bit of big, big news, Trophy Whores has been approved for iHeartRadio, which greatly expands the show’s footprint and reach.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Out Today

Today, Ubisoft announced Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.

Developed by Ubisoft Paris, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a military shooter entirely playable in up to four player co-op or single-player from beginning to the end. Players have total freedom of choice to accomplish their missions how they want and watch as the world reacts to their actions. Players can choose to move quietly in the night, go in hot at dawn, or work together to execute a sync-shot that takes out enemies in one fell swoop. Each choice has a consequence, and players must improvise or adapt their plans to ensure the completion and success of each mission.

Wildlands will put players in a fictional Bolivia, a few years from now, in which players must take down the Santa Blanca drug cartel by any means necessary. Behind enemy lines, players will hunt down targets and discover intel with the help of over 60 vehicles, which include cars, motorcycles and even helicopters that they can commandeer. To topple the cartel, players will have to fight their way to El Sueño, Santa Blanca’s ruthless leader, by breaking down the Santa Blanca Cartel’s operation piece by piece as they sever alliances between the drug lords and the corrupted government.

For the latest on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands and all of Ubisoft’s games, please visit www.ubiblog.com. Check out the launch trailer for the game below:
