Trophy Whores 342 – We Dream of Crossovers

For at least six months, we shouldn’t have to deal with rumors about the PlayStation 5.  The PlayStation 4 has plenty more to show us, and many great games on the horizon, so let’s chill out with talk of the future and appreciate what we have.  Stop and smell the roses of spring before you inflate your pool raft for that summertime barbecue.  It’s asparagus season — dammit!

This week, we deal with rumors surrounding available PS5 dev kits, as well as September release dates for a returning heroic purple dragon and a beloved web-slinging superhero — who has one of the catchiest theme songs in the history of catchy theme songs.  Let’s just say; September is going to be a hot month for PS4 owners.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Bloodborne, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Extinction.

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 the end, competition judge Sid heard arguments from both sides and picked a winner.  No one wants to look like a sore loser, or question the great Sid, so the win stands.

After taking Father’s Day off, we have a lot of ground to cover in the wake of E3 2017. Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Rocket League, Days Gone, Detroit: Become Human, Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition, Uncharted and Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Much like Uncharted, which is set to continue beyond the Lost Legacy, Horizon: Zero Dawn has become a franchise, and Sony Interactive Entertainment wants to feed us all that we can handle.  Alex will be waiting at the trough.  Horizon has sold well and garnered fantastic reviews from critics, including Alex, so, this news comes as no shock.  While franchises can become stale and played out, we trust Sony to handle their intellectual properties much better than either Activision or Ubisoft.  If Sony plans — which we don’t anticipate — to release a new Horizon game every year, giving the series what we can call the “Call of Assassin’s Hero” treatment, the awkward love triangle between Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed and Guitar Hero, then we might want to get off of the Strider and search for greener pastures.

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.

Trophy Whores 262 – Ride Out the E3 Aftershocks

The Trophy Whores have a lot to talk about this week, so let’s get down to brass tacks. For most gamers, E3 week is like the holiday season, with many gifts delivered daily. Held annually in Los Angeles, E3 showcases software that players can look forward to in 2016 and beyond. If you play video games, June is easily one of the best months of the year.  The expo spawns a massive amount of news, so the Trophy Whores have called in reinforcements to help dish out the tastiest tidbits and stories.

Lucia rejoins the crew, as they tackle the biggest PlayStation news from E3, including the Trophy Whores’ E3 predictions. If you enjoy going to a buffet and filling your plate with as much mediocre food as possible, then you will gorge on the amount of news that is about to come out of the E3 kitchen. Like servers, the Trophy Whores are here to deliver the news to you as quickly as possible – with as few hairs in the Sony stew as possible.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Spider-Man, Crash Bandicoot, Days Gone, God of War, Death Stranding, Resident Evil 7 and  Detroit: Become Human.

Regardless of how you feel about Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo, everyone wins during E3. It’s a great time for the video game industry, as the amount of news that explodes onto the television and the Internet is akin to the amount of rain that falls from the sky during the monsoon season.

Insomniac Games Takes a Spin at Spider-Man

Insomniac Games, who are no stranger to fantastic action games, are developing a new Spider-Man game, and it will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4. Sony revealed the reveal trailer during its E3 press conference.  The game looks gorgeous, which is exactly what we have come to expect from Insomniac, developers of the visually stunning Ratchet & Clank games.

Sony has grabbed a win; Insomniac’s Spider-Man is a fantastic exclusive game for Sony’s PlayStation 4.  Best of all, PlayStation 4 owners win, too.  Insomniac, a fan-favorite development studio, has served as the brains behind the creation of Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance and Sunset Overdrive.  Sunset Overdrive has drawn comparisons to Sucker Punch’s inFamous series, which challenges players with using superpowers for either good or evil.  Insomniac often provides players with larger-than-life abilities, and I know that they can make an amazing Spider-Man experience.  What’s more, Insomniac are admitted Spider-Man and Marvel fans, so the masked, web-slinging New Yorker is in good hands.

While Naughty Dog has earned the privilege to be called the best developer in video games, by myself and the rest of the Trophy Whores, Insomniac has show over their 22-year history that they make incredible games.  Based on what I have seen so far, I expect nothing less than an incredible Spider-Man game.

Trophy Whores 256 – Resident Darrell Finds Gold

Resident Darrell joins the show (this week) and, before providing the best impersonations of Donny that anyone has ever heard, gives his thoughts on the Great Trophy War and shares the spoils of his latest haul of video games.  Darrell, a proud and outspoken member of the Remember the Loot crew, always brings his “A” game, whether it be a trophy war or a podcast, so even in Donny’s absence, the Trophy Whores don’t miss a beat.

Darrell joins the Trophy Whores on a great week, too, as there is some big news to talk about.  Sony Computer Entertainment and Naughty Dog are — finally — ready to unleash Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which has earned fantastic reviews. The Trophy Whores have always championed Naughty Dog, as Naughty Dog has earned that level of respect, and like many gamers, the Trophy Whores can’t wait to play Drake’s latest — and possibly last — adventure.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Mighty No. 9, Watch Dogs 2, and Tom Clancy’s The Division.  Tricky is gaga for The Division.  He will commit blasphemy to defend it.  Since March, Tricky has logged heavy hours in The Division, and if you speak ill of it, he will be sure to voice his displeasure.  Usually, that is Donny’s job, but this week we have Darrell, and he — like Donny — isn’t afraid to tell it like he sees it.

Trophy Whores 255 – Gold Bolt Treasure Mapping

It’s an exciting time to be a PlayStation 4 owner.  Ratchet, Clank and Nathan Drake are back in the spotlight, which means only good things for the PlayStation family.  Galactic heroes Ratchet and Clank are beloved Insomniac Games’ characters, and they never seem to wear out their welcome.  Drake (and Elena and Sully), too, ranks highly among Sony’s most endearing and enduring characters.  In less than a month, Sony Computer Entertainment and Naughty Dog will release Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End — possibly the end of Drake’s adventures.  The Trophy Whores — and fans — can’t wait to get their hands on it.

The Trophy Whores dedicate much time to PlayStation All-Stars Drake, Ratchet and Clank, but the Four Whoresmen always have plenty to talk about — even if it isn’t important.  Donny could entertain in a discussion about napkins and Valencia oranges, and when Alex goes on a rant about Assassin’s Creed or World Wrestling Entertainment, it’s equal parts nonsense and brilliance.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and PlayStation NEO.  With the release of a “PlayStation 4.5,” Sony risks upsetting players who invested early in the PlayStation 4.  As Tricky says, Sony seems to take one step forward and 10 steps back.  We can only hope that Sony doesn’t alienate PS4 early adopters, as buying another $400 console so soon would be too much for a lot of gamers.  Unlike Ratchet and Clank, most of us aren’t rolling around in gold bolts.
