Tricky is an April fool.  Come hear our opening segment in all its glory, as Tricky falls hook, line and sinker for an April Fool’s Day joke that pokes at wrestling fans.  Usually, it’s easy to see an April Fool’s Day joke from a mile away, but sometimes a nugget of fiction passes through our…

Trophy Whores 338 – Judicial Tussle with the Video Game Boogeyman

To all lawmakers and judges, video games are not evil.  They don’t turn people into murderers.  What’s more, video games don’t make people take guns to public places and wreak havoc.  Thank you.  We appreciate your time. We have a release date for Detroit: Become Human.  If you’ve followed Quantic Dream’s work, then you know…

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…

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…

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…

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 307 – Lick it Like a Polaroid Picture

Maybe it’s an Ohio thing.  Yield might have misspoke, because Andre 3000 didn’t teach him to do that.  Or maybe it’s an Ohio thing. We live in strange times. This week we reveal the winner of the Trophy Whores E3 predictions battle royale.  While the ruling was appealed by at least two Trophy Whores, in…

Trophy Whores – Fireside Chat

Horizon Zero Dawn Review

The post-apocalyptic world has never looked so beautiful. Guerrilla Games has traded the war-torn wastelands of Killzone for the lush landscapes and sun-kissed vistas of Horizon: Zero Dawn, a third-person action game that stars Aloy, a fierce yet compassionate warrior searching for the truth of her past.

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…

Horizon: Zero Dawn has arrived.  Finally.  After much hype and press, we can blast through Guerilla Games’ latest creation, in which giant machines roam a lush world where nature thrives and humans live primitive lives.  You need to aim well, gamer.  We’ve got a nasty fight on our hands.  And Alex can’t be happier. “Now, bring…

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…

Trophy Whores 285 – Get the Towels Ready

It’s Alex’s first show back from a lengthy hiatus, and the Trophy Whores have already discussed — at length — the classic 8-bit Mega Man series.  Alex wouldn’t have it any other way — especially if everyone agrees that Mega Man 3 is the best game in the original series.  Tricky argues for Mega Man…
