Trophy Whores 314 – Franchises Can’t Live Forever

Based on that title, you might think that we’re going to take aim at some beloved video game franchises.  And you are right.  Surprisingly, Sonic the Hedgehog is not among them.  Let’s be honest, whenever this subject comes up, Sonic is almost a shoe-in for mention.  Instead, Tricky and Yield set their sights higher. And…

Trophy Whores 310 – Mega Man in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

We should call this the Double Dragon podcast, because Alex and Yield are tearing it up in the streets and spreading the gospel of Trophy Whores: Platinum trophies.  If we changed the name, confusion could ensue, as as people might expect a podcast about the video game series Double Dragon.  Billy and Jimmy don’t want…

Trophy Whores 309 – Crash into the Frozen Wilds

This week, you’re listening to the world’s greatest tag team: Alex and Yield.  Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas?  As good as they were, they weren’t even the best tag team in WWE during their run.  It’s true.  While they have shown their prowess in a wrestling ring, I doubt that either Benjamin or Haas have…

Trophy Whores 308 – Lucia’s Last Stand

We promise this story won’t involve a mutant cure or an ill-conceived Dark Phoenix arc.  This week we bid farewell to another long-serving host, as Lucia, or Mark, if you prefer, follows his dream to become a world-renowned JRPG play-tester.  Since he’s a big fan of wrestling, and World Wrestling Entertainment in particular, we can’t…

Trophy Whores 307 – Lick it Like a Polaroid Picture

Maybe it’s an Ohio thing.  Yield might have misspoke, because Andre 3000 didn’t teach him to do that.  Or maybe it’s an Ohio thing. We live in strange times. This week we reveal the winner of the Trophy Whores E3 predictions battle royale.  While the ruling was appealed by at least two Trophy Whores, in…

Gorgeous Shadow of the Colossus Towers over the Landscape

Shadow of the Colossus, originally released in 2005, was a landmark game.  The realization of an incredible and enthralling concept, Shadow of the Colossus brought players to a mysterious land filled with large mythical beasts that were key to the resurrection of a young woman. At the Electronic Entertainment Expo, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Japan Studio…

David Cage Confirms Detroit: Become Human for 2018

In an interview with Gamepot, David Cage (game director for Detroit: Become Human) confirmed that the game is “going to be next year.” Detroit: Become Human is an adventure game not unlike Quantic Dream’s previous titles Beyond: Two Souls and the critically acclaimed Heavy Rain. The game’s demo shown at E3 focused on an Android…

Trophy Whores 306 – One-Hour PlayStation Sizzle Reel

During their E3 2017 showcase, Sony Interactive Entertainment seemed to have traded long-winded monologues for a nearly constant stream of game videos.  Truth be told, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Shawn Layden didn’t have much to say during the showcase.  People seem split in their opinions.  Alex liked the press conference, while Mark and…

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 275 – Chewbacca Onesie

Best title ever?  Best title ever.  So there’s that.  Lucia wears a Chewbacca onesie like no one’s business.  When in San Diego … . Candice — yes, that Candice — returns to Trophy Whores and shares her thoughts on PlayStation 4 Pro, as well as Death Stranding and Metal Gear Survive.  Tricky tries to defend…

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.…
