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 266 – No Man’s Remake

If you like caped crusaders and tomb-raiding badasses, then we have good news:  Tricky isn’t on this episode.  Tricky continues to sip margaritas by the community pool, as the Trophy Whores, Alex, Donny and Yield, run the show so deep into the ground that they’re liable to strike oil.  The Trophy Whores haven’t found black gold yet, but they’re rich in opinions that only a mother could love.

This week the Trophy Whores do their best swan dives into a pool of Batman and Tomb Raider news.  No Man’s Sky makes an appearance, too, for the second week in a row, but you might feel a little awkward and unprepared if you aren’t wearing a cape or dual-wielding pistols.  You might be MacGyver, but you can’t save Gotham or survive ancient tombs without the proper equipment, and Duct tape doesn’t meet every need.  I said it.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Batman: A Telltale Game Series, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Batman: Return to Arkham and No Man’s Sky.  Donny, as you might know, isn’t keen on developers spending their time remastering and remaking games.  Instead, he wants new intellectual properties and new ideas.  Donny memes have popped up on the Trophy Whores and Remember the Loot Facebook pages, and Proven Gamer would like to share the best one with you.  Take in the magnificence and majesty of Donny:

Donny Psychonauts PS4

I would also like to point out that Tricky, who made this meme, spells as well as badger wearing oven mitts.  Psychonauts is the game.

Trophy Whores 262 – Ride Out the E3 Aftershocks

The Trophy Whores have a lot to talk about this week, so let’s get down to brass tacks. For most gamers, E3 week is like the holiday season, with many gifts delivered daily. Held annually in Los Angeles, E3 showcases software that players can look forward to in 2016 and beyond. If you play video games, June is easily one of the best months of the year.  The expo spawns a massive amount of news, so the Trophy Whores have called in reinforcements to help dish out the tastiest tidbits and stories.

Lucia rejoins the crew, as they tackle the biggest PlayStation news from E3, including the Trophy Whores’ E3 predictions. If you enjoy going to a buffet and filling your plate with as much mediocre food as possible, then you will gorge on the amount of news that is about to come out of the E3 kitchen. Like servers, the Trophy Whores are here to deliver the news to you as quickly as possible – with as few hairs in the Sony stew as possible.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Spider-Man, Crash Bandicoot, Days Gone, God of War, Death Stranding, Resident Evil 7 and  Detroit: Become Human.

Regardless of how you feel about Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo, everyone wins during E3. It’s a great time for the video game industry, as the amount of news that explodes onto the television and the Internet is akin to the amount of rain that falls from the sky during the monsoon season.

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.

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.
