Trophy Whores 267 – Sibling Rivalry Renewed

Tricky, who has been absent from the show for three weeks, makes his return to Trophy Whores.  As much as the Trophy Whores tease Tricky, they have missed him.  Trophy Whores isn’t the same without Tricky — or any other host.  Lucia, the Ionvein, tags along.

The Trophy Whores, who are short Yield, dive into a swimming pool of chicanery.  It’s a scorcher of a summer, and everyone is trying to beat the heat.  Tricky and Donny can’t get through 20 minutes without renewing their sibling rivalry, which means that Trophy Whores has again achieved homeostasis.

San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing, and Lucia is our reporter on the ground.  Well, he has been to Comic-Con, and we think that counts.  We’re pretty sure that he has seen things related to comics, movies and video games.  The Justice League trailer appeared debuted at Comic-Con, and, unfortunately, Martian Manhunter was nowhere to be seen.  It’s nice to see Cyborg on the screen, but without Martian Manhunter, it doesn’t feel like a true Justice League movie.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Minecraft: Story Mode, Injustice 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Sonic Mania.  It’s 2016, and, depending upon whom you ask, Sonic’s relevance and viability are dubious.  If this were 1992, then Sonic would be battling Mario for mascot supremacy.  Unfortunately, for Sega and Sonic, the hedgehog’s popularity has dried up like a slug on blacktop in August.

Trophy Whores 261 – Sophie’s Trophies

This week we have a momentous show.  We often have guests, but this week is special.  Superfan Sid, or Sidders1978, as well as his significant other, Mandy, join the show.  Sid is a longtime Trophy Whores listener, and he wrote the podcast with a poignant and personal story that touched every single member of the show.  In a landmark and emotional moment for the show, Tricky reads the email on the show in its entirety.  To be honest, the fellas are all superfans of Sid and Mandy.

Ionvein, again, runs with the preeminent PlayStation wolf pack.  Given Lucia’s streak of appearances, we should probably make him an officially unofficial Trophy Whore.  While the Trophy Whores aren’t recruiting any new permanent hosts, Lucia’s contributions to the show can’t be denied, and he brings the heat in this week’s discussion of the Electronic Entertainment Expo — better known as E3.

The Trophy Whores play soothsayers this week, as they make their E3 predictions.  As usual, they are keeping score; however, this year, Ionvein/Lucia/Mark joins the dogfight.  It will be a cutthroat battle for E3 guesstimating supremacy, so get your scorecards out!

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Injustice 2: Gods Among, Watch Dogs 2, Devil May Cry, Street Fighter V, Titanfall 2 and Agents of Mayhem.  Agents of Mayhem is the new game from Volition, the makers of the popular Saints Row series of sandbox crime games.  Jeff Hanna, an occasional guest on Trophy Whores, has his hands in that kiln.  Based solely on its name, Agents of Mayhem will draw attention and intrigue.  While that’s not much to go off of, Volition always does solid work, and history has shown that they can, if nothing else, make over-the-top action games that people love to play.

Playstation Neo confirmed!

Hello all you Sony fans! ProvenGamer has some big news that you will be excited to hear. This week, Sony finally confirmed The PlayStation Neo. The PlayStation Neo is an upgraded version of the PlayStation 4 with some exciting new features. The frame rate will run faster (2.1 MHz) over the current model and the bandwidth is said to increase by at least 20%.

The graphics cards will be improved to create a new look to PlayStation games but more importantly will have 4K support for HDTV. Where or not this will impact the way games are made is up in the air, but this provides a whole new support to the library of 4K movies coming out.

Unfortunately, Sony will not have a demo available for gamers at E3, but the ProvenGamer staff will keep an eye out for all news and updates on the PlayStation Neo. For all things related to Sony, stay tuned to ProvenGamer.com.

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.
