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…

Sony Reveals Secret of Mana Remake for PS4 and Vita

Today Sony revealed a ground-up, 3D remake of Secret of Mana — something that I don’t think any of us expected. To quote the Official PlayStation Blog: One of the greatest RPGs of all time, Secret of Mana, is coming back to life in 3D! Secret of Mana will come to PS4 and PS Vita…

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…

Gucamelee Review

Guacamelee is “Juan” heck of a game. Drinkbox has done it again, and brought another great PSN game on to the PlayStation consoles. Guacamelee! captures the humor, art, and musical style that all of their previous games have brought. The game also has wonderful platforming elements, a great combat system, and a really good story.…

Switch Galaxy Review

Switch Galaxy is a game by former Liverpool Studios developers, and you can tell in every aspect. Switch Galaxy captures the same sense of speed and beauty that Wipeout always shined in. The music is great, along with the designs of everything from the vehicles, down to the tracks and barriers. Even the price is…

Nun Attack Review

Nun Attack is one crazy game. In short, you take a group of nuns who happen to have shotguns and assault rifles to different graveyards to try to take down Mortana, the Fallen Nun. You go through 40 levels, spanning across four worlds. These levels have players running through them, destroying portals, and killing enemies…

Germinator Review

Germinator is a cross-buy enabled puzzle game for PSN developed by Creat Studios. Their previous games were known for being fun little diversions from “heavier” games, and Germinator is no exception. Germinator is a simple puzzle game that follows the tried and true formula of pick-up-and-play accessibility. Above all else however, the game is quite…

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken Review (Vita)

Rocketbirds is a cinematic puzzle platformer, that is definitely fun, but has plenty flaws too. Puzzles get repetitive, the story is pretty bad and often doesn’t make sense, the combat can be very frustrating, and the game is pretty short. Platforming is fun, and is the heart of the game, but the other aspects are…

So What Happened At Last Night’s Vita Conference?

Sony held a conference early this morning on what was to come for the Playstation Vita. It was filmed in a Nintendo Direct style, with someone talking in front of the camera, then rolling game footage, or having an interview. However, it wasn’t really meant for a US audience. Even though it was prerecorded, and…

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Review

Sly Cooper Thieves in Time does not have the same developer or graphics, but it is still Sly, and that’s a really good thing. Sly Cooper Thieves in Time is a stealthy platforming game with tons of content, a good story, and humor that doesn’t get old. Sanzaru’s love for the franchise really shines through,…

Super Crate Box Review

Super Crate Box was and forever will be an excellent mobile game. The extremely short rounds make the game easy to play in short spurts, exactly what most people want in a mobile game. There was only one thing missing though: actual button and analog controls. That’s what the Playstation Mobile Vita version of this…

escapeVektor Review

EscapeVektor by itself is an excellent puzzle game. But the developers at Nnooo wanted to add a story, something to push you onward, and passed with flying colors. The story isn’t just to break up the levels, the story actually means something. The puzzles, and the way you pass them, are excellent too. There is…
