Trophy Whores 305 – Expo of Platinum Prophecies

This week, we share our predictions for the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017.  As every year, the competition is fierce.  Alex and Mark are each looking to claim his first victory, while Tricky and Yield look to repeat previous wins.  Yield has won twice; Tricky won last year.  While everyone is confident that he has the…

Trophy Whores 304 – A Far Cry From Kingdom Hearts 3

This week Alex hosts, which means that you can expect brilliant segues and at least one BioShock reference.  With Mark and Stephen helping to navigate the latest video game news, we’ve got you covered on all the facts and stories that you need to know.  For instance, did you know that Sony Computer Entertainment needs…

Trophy Whores 303 – More Rangers Jokes than a Senators Bar

We don’t dislike the New York Rangers; however, Tricky talks a lot of trash, so when his team takes a nosedive in the playoffs, you know that he will catch hell.  Guest host Stephen, also a Rangers fan, weathers the storm as best he can, but, like being tossed around in an F5 tornado, it’s…

Trophy Whores 302 – Mass Effect Loses the Need for Speed

We’re still feeling the effects of Troy’s absence.  The DesTroyer of Insipid Arguments, who can lawyer you faster than Reggie Fils-Aime can smirk, has decided to leave Trophy Whores in light of backlash from a vocal minority of listeners.  We thought that everyone liked Zelda, Donkey Kong, Captain Falcon and Little Mac. We miss you,…

Trophy Whores 301 – The Troyce of Reason Yields

With episode 300 in the books, we return to our normally scheduled shenanigans.  As always, we warn you that silliness and sarcasm abound.  We assume that’s what you’re here for.  Don’t let anyone tell you not to end a sentence in a preposition. As we inch closer to summer, when the pool of noteworthy games…

Trophy Whores 299 – Beauty and the PAX East

While Tricky and Troy are cruising the show floor at PAX East 2017, the triumphant trophy-touting trio of Mark, Alex and Yield discuss the biggest PlayStation news to emanate from Boston.  Although the original Penny Arcade Expo, PAX Prime, has spawned annual sister shows, and dropped its “Prime” moniker, seemingly lessening the impact of each…

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 297 – Zero Dawn On The Horizon

Horizon: Zero Dawn has arrived.  Finally.  After much hype and press, we can blast through Guerilla Games’ latest creation, in which giant machines roam a lush world where nature thrives and humans live primitive lives.  You need to aim well, gamer.  We’ve got a nasty fight on our hands.  And Alex can’t be happier. “Now, bring…

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 294 – The Great Platinum War of 2017

As we continue on the road to show 300, the Trophy Whores bring you big news out of Square Enix, who have signed a deal to publish a Marvel Avengers video game. The game, which will be developed by Crystal Dynamics, is part of a larger collaboration with Marvel Entertainment that entails multiple games.  Given…

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 288 – Army Of T-Rex’s

That is a mouthful.  That’s what Tricky said.  I couldn’t resist.  Tricky loves Wendy’s chicken parmesan sandwiches.  Truly, to Tricky, it might as well be filet mignon.  Have you seen a man stick an entire sandwich in his mouth?  It isn’t for the faint of heart.  We can’t unhinge our jaws like snakes.  I’m surprised…

Trophy Whores 287 – Honor Among Trophy Whores

If you have listened to last episode, and, of course you have, then you know that Tricky is beelining toward his first tramp stamp.  I don’t know how we got to this point, but the pot at the end of this rainbow teems with equal parts hilarity and terror.  For his first tramp stamp, he…

Trophy Whores 286 – Octagonal Kiwami

This week, Tricky does his best to spit on the Engilsh language.  Tricky lectures people on the correct pronunciation of “mozzarella,” but as soon as he tries to say, “octagonal,” he stumbles through the word like a drunk rampaging through a Waffle House at two in the morning. Episode 286, which brings us another week…

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.…

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 271 – Beating a Dead Horse with No Man’s Jokes

This week the Trophy Whores press on without Tricky.  In other words, episode 271 has started off on the right foot — even though podcasts don’t have feet.  Granted, with the boss on hiatus, there’s plenty of opportunity for this ship to careen around the corner and run into a wall.  The Trophy Whores podcast…
