Trophy Whores 320 – Phantom Assassins of October

It’s finally October, which means that you’re about to binge on horror movies, beautiful foliage and PlayStation Plus freebies.  If you’re a real Looney Tune, then you’re downing large cups of pumpkin-spice, candy corn milkshakes. I may have invented — just now — the most disgusting drink served hot or cold — aside from gin. …

Trophy Whores 243 – Rocksteady And Rumble-Ready

As the Great Trophy War — pitting the Trophy Whores against the Remember the Loot crew — approaches, Tricky gets increasingly mouthy and sassy.  He’s confident — very much so — that the Trophy Whores will win the battle.  While Tricky hasn’t guaranteed victory, he is definitely ready to rumble. The Trophy Whores have plenty…

Trophy Whores 241 – Rock Out With Your Doc Out

This week Jeromy “Doc” Adams, founder of Sarcastic Gamer and, more importantly, Extra Life, joins the Trophy Whores for fun, chatter and tomfoolery.  Without Doc, Trophy Whores likely wouldn’t exist.  Trophy Whores started as a Community Cast podcast on Sarcastic Gamer and later became the flagship show of Proven Gamer.  Thanks to Doc, The Four…

Report: Kojima Left Konami?

Has Kojima Left Konami? We’d like to know too. Today, Japanese business journal Nikkei has reported that Hideo Kojima has left Konami and is in talks to create a new studio which may release games for consoles such as Sony’s PlayStation.

Trophy Whores 232 – The Hideo Kojima Patch

After playing games for nearly 24 hours, Tricky is tired,  but he still hosts the show.  Tricky participated in Extra Life 2015, which has raised over 20 million for the Children’s Miracle Network, and reached his goal of $200.  The Trophy Whores often tease Tricky, but the guys are proud of him. On this episode,…

Trophy Whores 228 – Donny’s One-Man Stand Against Remakes

Donny knows Alex well, which is — partially — why he brings up Psychonauts. Truth be told, he’s a fan, too. Who isn’t? It is a fantastic, imaginative game, and, as one of Alex’s favorite games, it holds a special place in his heart. Beyond placating Alex’s ardor for nostalgia and Double Fine Productions, Donny…

Trophy Whores 227 – Donny Ain’t Misbehavin’

This week Donny, also known as the “Crunchmaster,” snacks during the show, but other than that, he is on his best behavior.  Donny has a good reason to play nice, too.  This week we have a guest, and Donny doesn’t want to act a fool. While Donny minds his manners, Tricky steers our Platinum sailboat…

Trophy Whores 226 – Migraines Outta This World

While you are listening to this episode, Donny is freaking out about the dangers of virtual gaming.  According to him, virtual headsets are whack.  Donny isn’t always right, but he talks as if he is the smartest man in the world.  Given his taste in movies, which generally opposes popular opinion, you should know that…

Trophy Whores 225 – 197 Hours In 12 Days

Tricky likes Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and he likes it a lot.  As in, if Tricky could play The Phantom Pain or pick up a winning lottery ticket stuffed in a Spicy Chicken Sandwich (from Wendy’s), he would play The Phantom Pain.  What is wrong with him? Doesn’t he know that Wendy’s…

Trophy Whores 223 – Satyrs Attack In The Dying Light

This week we throw around opinions like we’re Sony tossing wads of cash at Naughty Dog.  In other words, it’s a normal week at Proven Gamer Studios. Donny doesn’t like Goat Simulator, and, as per usual, he doesn’t hide his contempt. He’s even less likely to play I Am Bread, regardless of its undeniable charm.…
