Resident Evil 7 Announced For Nintendo Switch…Sorta

It appears that Resident Evil 7 is headed to the Nintendo Switch…but not quite in the way you’d expect.

As of now, Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version has been listed Japanese eShop, with no confirmation on the title coming to other territories.  As the name implies, the game runs entirely through the cloud and cannot be played offline…at all. So if you don’t have a stable internet connection – it appears that you are SOL. But wait – it gets better! The game can be played for 15 minutes for free but after that, you’ll need to purchase a 2,000 yen ticket which lasts 180 days. I mean, one can definitely get through the game in six months, but this move just baffles me. If Capcom wanted to bring RE7 to the Switch, then why not just do it? A $20 online-only rental is just such a bizarre move, but to each their own.

In any case, feel free to check out the trailer below and comment on what you feel about this surprising, yet odd piece of news.

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 me that horizon,” Disney’s Jack Sparrow said.  Whenever we watch Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, we’ll know what he means.

Despite hosting a PlayStation podcast, The Trophy Whores spend much time talking about Nintendo — although the discussion ties to Sony and Horizon: Zero Dawn, as well as other upcoming games.  Warner Bros. Batman Arkham franchise is again in the spotlight, as whispers from the Internet point to a fifth game, possibly subtitled “Insurgency.”  Warner Bros. has yet to make an announcement, so, without official confirmation, we’re dealing with a mere rumor.  Obviously, for now, keep your excitement in check.  Why get excited for a game that doesn’t, officially, exist, when you can go absolutely mental for Horizon: Zero Dawn, which you can play now!

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Sunset Overdrive, and Nier: Automata.

In a bit of big, big news, Trophy Whores has been approved for iHeartRadio, 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 262 – Ride Out the E3 Aftershocks

The Trophy Whores have a lot to talk about this week, so let’s get down to brass tacks. For most gamers, E3 week is like the holiday season, with many gifts delivered daily. Held annually in Los Angeles, E3 showcases software that players can look forward to in 2016 and beyond. If you play video games, June is easily one of the best months of the year.  The expo spawns a massive amount of news, so the Trophy Whores have called in reinforcements to help dish out the tastiest tidbits and stories.

Lucia rejoins the crew, as they tackle the biggest PlayStation news from E3, including the Trophy Whores’ E3 predictions. If you enjoy going to a buffet and filling your plate with as much mediocre food as possible, then you will gorge on the amount of news that is about to come out of the E3 kitchen. Like servers, the Trophy Whores are here to deliver the news to you as quickly as possible – with as few hairs in the Sony stew as possible.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Spider-Man, Crash Bandicoot, Days Gone, God of War, Death Stranding, Resident Evil 7 and  Detroit: Become Human.

Regardless of how you feel about Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo, everyone wins during E3. It’s a great time for the video game industry, as the amount of news that explodes onto the television and the Internet is akin to the amount of rain that falls from the sky during the monsoon season.
