Playstation Classic Full Lineup Announced – Coming December 3rd

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88ACUOvfDEw

Sony has finally unveiled the list of 20 games included on the Playstation Classic on the Playstation Blog. While we knew that Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII and Jumping Flash were coming, the remaining 17 games were kept behind closed doors for quite a while, creating speculation throughout the community. Well now we know the Playstation Classic is coming on December 3rd for $99.99 and appears to leave something to be desired.

See the full list below

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil Director’s Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

20 games is not enough games for any classic system, but this list is leaving out many classics that people were hoping would be included. Two major mascots of the original Playstation, Crash Bandicoot & Lara Croft are oddly missing (although those remasters are out there now & Lara has moved on in a grand way). What do you think of the list? Is this a collection worth $100?

Trophy Whores 327 – Plus PlayStation Predictions

For the benefits of PlayStation Plus, the Trophy Whores willingly hand over that cold hard cash.  It’s hard to argue that PlayStation Plus isn’t a good deal.  You can try, but you might have more luck convincing Count Chocula that he shouldn’t be a year-round cereal.  He loves the spotlight.  Sure, Sony Computer Entertainment bumped the annual price to $60, but considering the free games, discounts and cloud saves, PlayStation Plus remains a fantastic way to fuel your gaming habit!

The PlayStation Experience, or PSX to fans of brevity, looms on the horizon, and the Trophy Whores make their predictions for the show.  They try to be as serious as possible, but you know that the guys have to toss out a few “off the wall” predictions.  Strangely, no one predicts that Thanos (from Avengers: Infinity War) is really the older, jaded and miserable brother of McDonald’s’ character Grimace, who reminds everyone of a fat purple Christmas tree.  Happy holidays!

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, PlayStation Plus (and Games with Gold), Fortnite, Assassin’s Creed Origins and Mega Man.

In a bit of big news, iHeartRadio streams episodes of Trophy Whores, which greatly expands the show’s footprint and reach. It’s a tremendous honor for the show to be part of iHeartRadio’s massive and respected community, and Proven Gamer have only the fans to thank for pushing the podcast to this point.  The Trophy Whores work hard to put out a quality weekly show, but they owe so much love to their listeners, who keep the show strong and growing.

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 needs a small DualShock 4 — to save space for a DualShock 5.  Tricky doesn’t have ink on his lower back yet, but you can help by contributing to the Proven Gamer Extra Life fundraising campaign.  You have until the end of the year, which is closing quickly.

We have updated Extra Life donation numbers, as well as news from around the game industry.  It’s the end of the year, so we hope that you’ve got your holiday gift lists sorted.  Throughout the month, Sony has PlayStation Nework sales for all of the gamers who played nice this year.  Truth be told, even if you have been naughty, you can still take advantage of the PSN deals.  While you are perusing the fine offerings available on the PSN, be sure to check out The Last Guardian, which, despite its tumultous path to release, has received a warm reception from critics.  You would be naughty to pass up the next tale in the ICO universe.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, WWE 2K17, Ark: Survival Evolved, Extra Life, The Last of Us Part II, Watchdogs 2, and Batman: The Telltale Series.

We devote a large chunk of the show to the Trophy Whores Bill of Rights, for which we have painstakingly created an online rough draft.  In video games terms, we can call it the “alpha” version.  We have taken it this far, but we need your input to help finalize (and pass) our Bill of Rights.

We appreciate your support (and your ears)!

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 2 for almost a decade.  At this point, it’s hard to know what to believe.  For the sake of fans, we hope that Beyond Good and Evil 2 is real.  After all of the time, support and attention, we believe that the fans deserve a fitting sequel.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, PlayStation Plus, Beyond Good and Evil 2, Twitch, and No Man’s Sky.

No Man’s Sky Watch has ended.  It seems soon after it began.  Our hands-on coverage and discussion of No Man’s Sky has been as good as a Snickers bar that has been dipped in expired milk.  Yield, who is the only Trophy Whore to play the game, hasn’t spent much more time with No Man’s Sky, so we can assume that Hello Games’ ambitious adventure has been shelved for the time.   The number of players for No Man’s Sky has dropped significantly, but we still hope that the game isn’t seen as a failure.
