Trophy Whores 275 – Chewbacca Onesie

Best title ever?  Best title ever.  So there’s that.  Lucia wears a Chewbacca onesie like no one’s business.  When in San Diego … .

Candice — yes, that Candice — returns to Trophy Whores and shares her thoughts on PlayStation 4 Pro, as well as Death Stranding and Metal Gear Survive.  Tricky tries to defend Survive, but Lucia and Candice have none of it.  Candice evokes the phrase “dumpster fire,” which never means good things.  Wherever there’s dumpster fire, it’s probably being fueled by copies of The Division and Tricky’s list of Platinum trophies.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Death Stranding, Metal Gear Survive, No Man’s Sky and the The Last Guardian.  After a lengthy development cycle, The Last Guardian has been delayed, and on some level, the game feels like a carrot on a string.  We know it’s there, and we can see it, but we can never reach out and grab it.  At least Sony still lists it for release in 2016.  The Last Guardian will be available in December — unless Sony delays it again.

Trophy Whores 274 – PS4 Too Soon

I went there.

This week, on Trophy Whores, we delve into the uninspiring and unnecessary PlayStation Meeting 2016.  Despite showing new hardware, Sony and its partners did little to excite us.  Having said that, we’re pretty sure that everyone should be all in on Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man, which looks gorgeous on the PlayStation 4 Pro.  Of course, if you own any version of the PlayStation 4, then you will, presumably, get a fantastic experience out of Insomniac’s spin at Spider-Man.

We aren’t surprised by the announcements of the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 4 Slim, as Sony has a history of releasing sleeker and improved versions of its consoles mid-cycle; however, we agree that Sony is releasing these consoles too soon into the lifespan of the PS4.  While $400 is a fair price point for the new consoles, the standard PlayStation 4 plays the same games, and those games look really good, so the PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim don’t seem necessary.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, PlayStation 4 Pro, PlayStation 4 Slim, Batman: Return to Arkham, and Bethesda.

Alex has a special shout-out.  On September 16, at Gallery K on Barret Avenue in Louisville, his friend Avalon is holding an art gallery for the first part of the survivor modeling project, This is MY Body, which features sexual assault survivors.  Through this event, these brave women hope to reclaim their bodies and raise sexual assault awareness by speaking out against a pervasive problem in our country.  Admission is free.  Magazine copies featuring the models and photographs will be sold at the show, and the profits will be donated to the Center for Women and Families.  The gallery will be open from 5 pm to 10 pm.  It will be a fantastic event, and if possible, you should go.

Trophy Whores 272 – Pour One Out for Donny

This week we pay our respects to Donny, who has decided to leave Trophy Whores and Proven Gamer.  Lucia, who has excelled as a guest host in recent months, has joined the crew as the fourth Trophy Whore.  Donny will continue his shenanigans elsewhere with Whatever Talk, and we will update you when we know where his show will land.

Donny, we thank you for the countless hours and great effort that you devoted to Trophy Whores.  Your fellow hosts and our listeners fans appreciate your hard work and your uncanny ability to make up words.

Yield sits out this week, but we welcome Jeremy and Matt, the Smart Marks, to the show.  Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, PlayStation 4 Slim, PlayStation Plus and Metal Gear Survive.
