Trophy Whores 355 – Cause Yuntwis Said So

Well, it isn’t the beer-swilling Steven Austin, but this week we welcome back a veteran Trophy Whore — who might as well be stone cold when it comes to video game reviews.  After a year away from the show, an old friend returns to Trophy Whores to stomp mud-holes and walk them dry. We are…

Trophy Whores 354 – Tricky’s Favorite Beyonce Lyric

This week, with Stephen at the helm, the Trophy Whores (Alex, Yield and Tricky) cover the best PlayStation 4 games and discuss a PlayStation Vita game that openly entices buyers with easy trophies.  While trophies encourage and increase friendly competition between gamers and offer additional challenges to each game, we have always been faced with…

Trophy Whores 350 – Still Not Cancelled

How the hell did we get this far?  Even now we’re baffled by the overwhelming force that helps drive Trophy Whores: you.  Yes, you, one piece of Trophy Whores nation.  This episode would not be possible without the continued and humbling support of our awesome listeners.  We are perpetually grateful for each person who listens…

Trophy Whores 348 – PS4’s Final Phase

We have a motley crew this week as Steve, Alex, Matt and Andy come together to discuss NPD numbers, the PS4 possibly being in its “final phase”, and we discuss if we are excited for the next Playstation exclusive Detroit: Become Human.

Trophy Whores 346 – Beyond Greece and Hillys

Kratos and Atreus have been busy.  The Ghost of Sparta has toppled sales charts as the usurper of Mount Olympus; however, with Atreus, his son, at his side, he’s setting forth on a new journey that can bring even more accolades to the turbulent, destructive and emotional story of the mortal who has slain the…

Trophy Whores 345 – PETA Suffers Far Cry from Rationale

Tricky recommends God of War to anyone with opposable thumbs.  Can you hold a PlayStation controller?  Are you a DualShock jockey?  Tricky implores you to play God of War.  Like, now.  If Tricky is to be believed, then the new God of War is better than a plate of moussaka bought at the top of…

Trophy Whores 343 – God of War Ushers in E3 News

Well, after a few short breaths to recover from PAX East, we’re discussing early news for E3 2018.  While it might seem obvious that Anthem and Fortnite have been pegged for the biggest annual electronic entertainment expo in the U.S., we take every opportunity possible to discuss Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2…

Trophy Whores 342 – We Dream of Crossovers

For at least six months, we shouldn’t have to deal with rumors about the PlayStation 5.  The PlayStation 4 has plenty more to show us, and many great games on the horizon, so let’s chill out with talk of the future and appreciate what we have.  Stop and smell the roses of spring before you…

Trophy Whores 341 – Jeff Goldblum is in the Game

Tricky is an April fool.  Come hear our opening segment in all its glory, as Tricky falls hook, line and sinker for an April Fool’s Day joke that pokes at wrestling fans.  Usually, it’s easy to see an April Fool’s Day joke from a mile away, but sometimes a nugget of fiction passes through our…

Trophy Whores 340 – In the Shadow of God of War

By now, it’s surprising that we don’t have a LEGO game set in the Pixar universe.  Toy Story seems ripe for an adaptation, but if a LEGO Incredibles game includes some of Pixar’s most beloved characters, such as Rex, Sully and Heimlich, then we’re all in for a treat.  Sometimes, we could all go for…

Trophy Whores 338 – Judicial Tussle with the Video Game Boogeyman

To all lawmakers and judges, video games are not evil.  They don’t turn people into murderers.  What’s more, video games don’t make people take guns to public places and wreak havoc.  Thank you.  We appreciate your time. We have a release date for Detroit: Become Human.  If you’ve followed Quantic Dream’s work, then you know…

Trophy Whores 337 – Rented it from Gamestop

Somehow, we haven’t mentioned our Humble Bundle partnership in a post, for which we should be flogged with semi-soft cheese; however, better late than never, we are happy and proud to share that Proven Gamer has partnered with the Humble Bundle!  The Humble Bundle is a fantastic initiative and program that allows games to score…

Trophy Whores 336 – Loot Box Legislation

After losing late week’s recording to audio issues — caused by nefarious gnomes — the Trophy Whores return to reclaim the crown for best PlayStation podcast that talks way too much about everything but video games.  Alright, so we talk plenty about video games, too.

Trophy Whores 333 – The Game Awards Go Wild

We finally get to our Game Awards discussion, during which Tricky renews his rivalry with the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  Horizon Zero Dawn — thought nominated — did not win an award.  Does Guerrilla Games deserve recognition for their masterpiece?  Yes.  They do, forever.  And while Horizon didn’t win big at the…

Trophy Whores 328 – PSX-plosion

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, Medievil, From Software, World War Z, Tomb Raider and Mega Man X.

Trophy Whores 327 – Plus PlayStation Predictions

For the benefits of PlayStation Plus, the Trophy Whores willingly hand over that cold hard cash.  It’s hard to argue that PlayStation Plus isn’t a good deal.  You can try, but you might have more luck convincing Count Chocula that he shouldn’t be a year-round cereal.  He loves the spotlight.  Sure, Sony Computer Entertainment bumped…

Trophy Whores 325 – The Tricky Thing About 4k
