Trophy Whores 298 – PAX East On The Horizon

Last Tuesday, Sony Computer Entertainment shared a gem with the gaming world, and we’re feeling the aftershocks.  Yes, we’re in the midst of Horizon Zero Dawn release week, and you know that the Trophy Whores are talking miles about Guerilla Games new open-world action game.  The opinions differ in certain areas, but, unsurprisingly, the guys…

Trophy Whores 296 – Crash Through the News

The Trophy Whores are barreling toward episode 300 like an 18-wheeler on an icy mountain road.  They can’t be stopped.  They won’t be stopped! To 300 — and beyond! As we move through winter, the news is picking up.  There’s much to talk about this week, and the Trophy Whores rip through headlines like a…

Trophy Whores 295 – The Tricky Rule

This week, the Trophy Whores share sad news: Masaya Nakamura, who founded Namco, has passed away.  He was a pioneer in the video game industry, and Proven Gamer want to pay our respects to Nakamura and his work. As always, the guys have the latest and greatest news from the world of PlayStation, including the…

Trophy Whores 290 – Great Shuhei in the Sky

Tragedy has hit the Proven Gamer PlayStation family.  We aren’t seven days into 2017, and Mark has lost his (second) PlayStation 4.  On the bright side, it seems that Mark was able to save his Final Fantasy XV progress, and he has an excuse to buy a PlayStation 4 Pro, which will pair nicely with…

Trophy Whores 277 – Beyond Twitch and PSX Plus

This week, Alex, Yield, Troy and Frosty dish out news and opinions like there’s a Labor Day sale at the news-and-opinions store.  I’m sorry; Tricky’s atrocious segues have wreaked havoc on my intellect.  Tricky’s segues are as bad as the Cubs’ World Series title drought. That’s better. We’ve been hearing about Beyond Good and Evil…

Trophy Whores 273 – Segues Destroyed by Soup

Previously on Trophy Whores, Donny said goodbye to Proven Gamer, Lucia joined the show as the fourth official host, and Tricky introduced the headlock-loving Smart Marks, Jeremy and Matt. You know, that really doesn’t work when you can’t wow the audience with flashy, colorful video clips and a fancy voice-over guy with a sultry voice.  Well,…

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…

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…

Trophy Whores 260 – Helldive Into Doom

While Yield is fending off polar bears and killer whales in Alaska, the Trophy Whores — and Lucia — carry the torch through episode 260.  Lucia, who is a strong candidate to become the unofficial fifth Trophy Whore, joins the Whoresmen for the third week in a row.  If anyone can handle the silliness and…

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…

Trophy Whores 251 – The Whores Own The Loot

The Trophy Whores won the war.  The Remember the Loot crew played hard and battled valiantly, but in the end, the Whores emerged victorious — in a clean sweep!  What the Whores lost in sleep, they gained in trophies and levels. This week, beyond the usual news and shenanigans, the fellas recap the Great Trophy…

Trophy Whores 231 – From Paris With Games

Tricky doesn’t get Horizon Zero Dawn.  To be fair, Tricky has a skewed sense of quality.  He believes that Hannah Montana The Movie, for which he has the Platinum trophy, is a good game.  The Trophy Whores often tease him about that — because he deserves it. Horizon, developed by Guerrilla Games, has gotten a…

Trophy Whores 223 – Satyrs Attack In The Dying Light

This week we throw around opinions like we’re Sony tossing wads of cash at Naughty Dog.  In other words, it’s a normal week at Proven Gamer Studios. Donny doesn’t like Goat Simulator, and, as per usual, he doesn’t hide his contempt. He’s even less likely to play I Am Bread, regardless of its undeniable charm.…

Trophy Whores 222 – Yield Is Mad For No Man’s Sky

This week, Donny pulls and a Houdini and disappears; however, we soldier on and make lemonade out of lemon meringue pie. Despite the approach of the NFL season, we keep the football chatter to a minimum — even though we really want to come up with awesome names for our fantasy football teams! Join our…

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…
