Trophy Whores 264 – Mightiest Number of 3

Alex runs the show this week, so you know that he’s gonna wreak Havok — like Alex Summers in X-Men: Apocalypse.  When Tricky is away, the Trophy Whores will play like three bandits who happen upon an unsupervised truck of video games.  The Trophy Whores, and Proven Gamer, don’t endorse larceny, or theft of any kind, but if it will make for a good simile in a banner introduction, then we’re all for it.  Truth is, we appreciate great video games, clever pop culture references and brilliant similes.

This week the Trophy Whores mix new- and old-school, as they take you to the depths of Rapture and the woods of Whispering Rock Summer Camp.  With BioShock and Psychonauts on the agenda, Alex perks up like a Green Bay Packers fan in September.  Tricky perks up during football season, too, because it means that comic relief, courtesy of the New York Giants, is on the way.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, BioShock Infinite and Mighty No. 9.  Critics have not been kind to Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune and Comcept’s spiritual successor to the beloved Mega Man series.  While bad reviews can be detrimental to sales, Alex, a longtime Mega Man fan, and Yield aren’t deterred by the naysayers.

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 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 of topics to discuss this week, but, as usual, they move like a slug in molasses.  They hope you enjoy the banter, because you are getting a lot of it.  You’ll probably finish decorating for the Fourth of July before the fellas hit housekeeping.

Join our league of extraordinary Rocket League players as we discuss, among other things, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Song of the Deep, Rocket League and Mighty No. 9.  We also chat about the WWE Royal Rumble.  While some people relish the outcome, as well as Triple H’s new reign as WWE champion, Alex is still peeved that Bray Wyatt, leader of the scary, powerful and dominant Wyatt Family, didn’t outlast 29 other superstars to win the annual battle royal.

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 Donny isn’t afraid to swim upstream.

Tricky, on the other hand, has retired from Trivia Crack — after less than 20 games!  He dons a cape of cowardice, as he refuses to accept Alex’s challenges and game invites.  Who runs from a friendly challenge?  The Cowardly Crusader rises again!

Join our powerful quartet of trivia nerds and PlayStation admirers, as we discuss, among other things, Mighty No. 9, Gravity Rush, BioShock, Resident Evil and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.  What’s more, Tricky updates us on his trek through Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  If you crunch the numbers, you will find that Tricky has more time invested into The Phantom Pain than the builders of the Titanic put into that “unsinkable” ship.

Trophy Whores 221 – 22 Thin Mints And A Microphone

The person who owns the Thin Mints holds the power.  If you — as I do — believe that, then Tricky, who has 22 boxes of Thin Mints, is the ruler of the world.

This week, as every week, we inundate your ears with silliness and randomness.  We’re professionals (at being silly and random). Join our ragtag band of rocker wannabes, as we discuss, among other things, Rocket League, Disney Infinity, Guitar Hero Live, Mighty No. 9 and PlayStation Plus.

Donny (again) laments Activision and FreeStyle Games’ oversight of Bone (Thugs in Harmony), but, on the bright side, he didn’t pay to see the latest Fantastic Four movie.  Marvel probably wants that franchise back.
