Trophy Whores 302 – Mass Effect Loses the Need for Speed

We’re still feeling the effects of Troy’s absence.  The DesTroyer of Insipid Arguments, who can lawyer you faster than Reggie Fils-Aime can smirk, has decided to leave Trophy Whores in light of backlash from a vocal minority of listeners.  We thought that everyone liked Zelda, Donkey Kong, Captain Falcon and Little Mac.

We miss you, Troy.  We know that it has been only one episode, but we miss you.  We had a good run.

Mass Effect Andromeda was supposed to re-invigorate BioWare’s sweeping and massive space odyssey; however, instead, the game created a rift between longtime fans.  Electronic Arts, BioWare’s parent company and video game publishing boogeyman, has decided to slow the turnaround on a sequel.  Given that Mass Effect is, uh, massively popular, we have no doubt that BioWare’s biggest franchise has an equally large future.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Mass Effect, BioWare Montreal, Square Enix and Need for Speed.

If we are being honest, and I feel that I speak for everyone on the show, we would trade Need of Speed for Split/Second any (and every) day of the week.  Long live the memory of Disney’s Black Rock Studio!

In a bit of big, 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 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 his 4K television. All is not lost.  Mark, sadly, has become accustomed to, as well all have, video game consoles dying.  He will persevere.

This week, the Trophy Whores — all five of them — discuss a plethora of PS4 games set to release in 2017.  The list of games is topped by heavy hitters like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Kingdom Hearts 3, God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Gran Turismo Sport; however, even if you aren’t looking forward to the aforementioned, there is still plenty reason to be excited about the year in PlayStation.  Per usual, there will be no shortage of games to play on your PlayStation console.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Ace Combat 7, Days Gone, Friday the 13th: The Game, Mass Effect: Andromeda, New Hot Shots Golf, and Persona 5.  Regardless of your preferences and tastes, the new year brings a tidal wave of AAA games and a list of release dates that should make you wet your pants in anticipation.  Get ready, because 2017 is going to be a banner year.

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 4, and while he might have questionable taste in video games, his argument lends credence to the power of nostalgia.  You’ll smile when you hear to what lengths Tricky went to stay up (past his bedtime) and play Mega Man 4.

Lucia sits out this week, probably because he is disgusted with Tricky’s passion for Mega Man 4, as well as The Division, but even with four hosts, the Trophy Whores record for nearly three hours.  What can you do with three hours?  Listen to this episode, silly.  You can also take a long-ass nap, but we’re talking video games, and you want in on that action.  When a podcast starts with heavy amounts of the Blue Bomber and professional wrestling, then you know that things are going to run long.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Extra Life, Black Friday, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Titanfall 2.

With the Game Awards approaching, the Trophy Whores try to predict the winners for two categories: Game of the Year and Most-Anticipated Game.  Per usual, every nominee deserves recognition and praise; however, among the Trophy Whores, Uncharted 4, Overwatch and Horizon take top billing.
