Trophy Whores 333 – The Game Awards Go Wild

We finally get to our Game Awards discussion, during which Tricky renews his rivalry with the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  Horizon Zero Dawn — thought nominated — did not win an award.  Does Guerrilla Games deserve recognition for their masterpiece?  Yes.  They do, forever.  And while Horizon didn’t win big at the Game Awards, if you look at the votes on the PlayStation Blog, then you know that there’s no shortage of love for Guerrilla’s best game to date.

Tricky, Alex and Yield join forces to produce the best — and wittiest — banter to keep you warm through the cold January nights.  Grab and bowl of chili, find your favorite blanket and snuggle up with the Platinum trophies of podcasting.  We’re like Swiss Miss hot chocolate for your ears!

Trophy Whores 314 – Franchises Can’t Live Forever

Based on that title, you might think that we’re going to take aim at some beloved video game franchises.  And you are right.  Surprisingly, Sonic the Hedgehog is not among them.  Let’s be honest, whenever this subject comes up, Sonic is almost a shoe-in for mention.  Instead, Tricky and Yield set their sights higher.

And Alex?  Well, his answer is (insanely) surprising.  We hope you’re sitting down for this lively discussion.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Dishonored, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Horizon Zero Dawn and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.

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 his way, considering that he has two of the three Platinums.  Thanks to PlayStation Plus, we’ve got new Instant Game Collection titles for August, and one of the games opens an Assassin’s Creed discussion — during which Alex isn’t completely pessimistic.  According to Alex, if you set a game in ancient Egypt, you’re already one step closer to success.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Crash Bandicoot: Warped, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and Deadpool 2 — the movie!

Josh Brolin, who has starred in movies like The Goonies, Mimic and No Country for Old Men, has been cast as Nathan Summers in the upcoming Deadpool sequel.  We’re sure that Ryan Reynolds is pleased, as no one in his or her right mind can object to Brolin playing Scott and Jean’s gruff and tough son.
