Trophy Whores 342 – We Dream of Crossovers

For at least six months, we shouldn’t have to deal with rumors about the PlayStation 5.  The PlayStation 4 has plenty more to show us, and many great games on the horizon, so let’s chill out with talk of the future and appreciate what we have.  Stop and smell the roses of spring before you inflate your pool raft for that summertime barbecue.  It’s asparagus season — dammit!

This week, we deal with rumors surrounding available PS5 dev kits, as well as September release dates for a returning heroic purple dragon and a beloved web-slinging superhero — who has one of the catchiest theme songs in the history of catchy theme songs.  Let’s just say; September is going to be a hot month for PS4 owners.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Bloodborne, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Extinction.

Trophy Whores 265 – Figments of Donny’s Imagination

It’s the middle of the summer, and the news has dried up like a salted slug in the Sahara.  When the Trophy Whores are low on news, they turn Donny loose like a Rikki-Tikki-Tavi in a cobra hole.  Somewhere, Tricky hopes that the figments of Donny’s imagination don’t run wild.

While Donny has been busy with Double Fine’s Psychonauts, the fine folks at Hello Games have been readying No Man’s Sky, which has garnered immense hype and excitement. No Man’s Sky has gone gold, which means that we’re one step closer to playing it.  If you were a little sour about the latest delay, pushing No Man’s Sky to October, then you can finally turn that frown upside down.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Ratchet & Clank, No Man’s Sky, The Warriors, and Shadow of the Colossus.  Resident Darrell, of Remember the Loot fame, has been playing Shadow of the Colossus, which, if you ask Alex, is one of the best video games ever made.  The feeling of taking down each Colossus is equal parts triumphant and heartbreaking, as somber tunes accompany every behemoth to its final resting place.  While its age shows, the story and concept of Shadow of the Colossus still inspire awe and adoration among its fans.

Trophy Whores 256 – Resident Darrell Finds Gold

Resident Darrell joins the show (this week) and, before providing the best impersonations of Donny that anyone has ever heard, gives his thoughts on the Great Trophy War and shares the spoils of his latest haul of video games.  Darrell, a proud and outspoken member of the Remember the Loot crew, always brings his “A” game, whether it be a trophy war or a podcast, so even in Donny’s absence, the Trophy Whores don’t miss a beat.

Darrell joins the Trophy Whores on a great week, too, as there is some big news to talk about.  Sony Computer Entertainment and Naughty Dog are — finally — ready to unleash Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which has earned fantastic reviews. The Trophy Whores have always championed Naughty Dog, as Naughty Dog has earned that level of respect, and like many gamers, the Trophy Whores can’t wait to play Drake’s latest — and possibly last — adventure.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Mighty No. 9, Watch Dogs 2, and Tom Clancy’s The Division.  Tricky is gaga for The Division.  He will commit blasphemy to defend it.  Since March, Tricky has logged heavy hours in The Division, and if you speak ill of it, he will be sure to voice his displeasure.  Usually, that is Donny’s job, but this week we have Darrell, and he — like Donny — isn’t afraid to tell it like he sees it.

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 highly among Sony’s most endearing and enduring characters.  In less than a month, Sony Computer Entertainment and Naughty Dog will release Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End — possibly the end of Drake’s adventures.  The Trophy Whores — and fans — can’t wait to get their hands on it.

The Trophy Whores dedicate much time to PlayStation All-Stars Drake, Ratchet and Clank, but the Four Whoresmen always have plenty to talk about — even if it isn’t important.  Donny could entertain in a discussion about napkins and Valencia oranges, and when Alex goes on a rant about Assassin’s Creed or World Wrestling Entertainment, it’s equal parts nonsense and brilliance.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and PlayStation NEO.  With the release of a “PlayStation 4.5,” Sony risks upsetting players who invested early in the PlayStation 4.  As Tricky says, Sony seems to take one step forward and 10 steps back.  We can only hope that Sony doesn’t alienate PS4 early adopters, as buying another $400 console so soon would be too much for a lot of gamers.  Unlike Ratchet and Clank, most of us aren’t rolling around in gold bolts.

Trophy Whores 254 – Bringer of the PAX Plague

Tricky and the Trophy Whores, which sounds like a fantastic name for a hip-hop group, have big news to break, but I don’t want to give it away.  And by big news, I mean “you heard it here first” news.  You’ll have to be patient; however, the Trophy Whores have plenty of chatter to keep you entertained.

Donny is the Mayor of Babbleville.  It’s official.  It’s also better much better than being the Bringer of the PAX Plague: Tricky.  Luckily, the Trophy Whores have quarantined Tricky, so they won’t be getting sick.  No one wants to deal with a bad case of the coughs — especially when the galaxy needs to be saved!

The Trophy Whores continue their Ratchet & Clank discussion, and Tricky has all of the hot news from PAX East.  Apparently, the Goddess likes PlayStation VR so much that she wants to buy it — despite the cost.  Tricky seems on-board, so if you aren’t sold on VR, Proven Gamer has you covered.  Tricky also got his mitts on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants and Manhattan, which Alex hopes is the second coming of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, PlayStation VR, Devil May Cry, Ratchet & Clank, Until Dawn, Mafia III, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

Trophy Whores 253 – Play the Groovitron Until Dawn

Ratchet and Clank are back!  Yes, the beloved galactic heroes have returned to the PlayStation!  Donny and Tricky have played a lot of the newest iteration, and they have the skinny on Ratchet and Clank’s debut on the PlayStation 4.  Let’s hope that Captain Qwark is here, there and everywhere in Insomniac Games’ latest galactic adventure.

Alex has finished Until Dawn, and he wants you to know that it’s really, really good.  He says it’s fantastic.  Alex knows a lot about video games, and you should probably listen to him.  To boot, Tricky and Donny are Until Dawn fans, so you know that it has to be a classic.  Now if only the guys can get Yield to play it.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Until Dawn, Red Dead Redemption 2, Ratchet & Clank, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.  With Uncharted 4 nearing release, the Trophy Whores are getting antsy to see what Nathan Drake has been up to.  As they are PlayStation fans through and through, the Trophy Whores wave proudly the Naughty Dog flag.  They’re fans — to say the least.  If you aren’t down with Drake, Elena and Sully, then you came to the wrong place.
