Trophy Whores 345 – PETA Suffers Far Cry from Rationale

Tricky recommends God of War to anyone with opposable thumbs.  Can you hold a PlayStation controller?  Are you a DualShock jockey?  Tricky implores you to play God of War.  Like, now.  If Tricky is to be believed, then the new God of War is better than a plate of moussaka bought at the top of Mount Olympus.  Stephen recommends the game, too, so perhaps the chatter is legit.  Tricky’s opinion is worth a rusted half-eaten penny; Stephen’s recommendations carry the weight of an Avengers movie.  God of War seems like a safe bet.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, God of War, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Far Cry 5 and God of War.  I said, “God of War,” twice.  God of War.  That makes three.  PETA has spoken out against Far Cry 5 … for the treatment of fish.  Virtual fish.  That don’t have feelings.  Video games fish don’t have feelings.  But PETA doesn’t care, as they’re too busy going ape-shit over molehills.  PETA has an admirable goal, protecting animal rights and denouncing cruelty against animals — but some of the members often come across as nut-jobs.

Trophy Whores 340 – In the Shadow of God of War

By now, it’s surprising that we don’t have a LEGO game set in the Pixar universe.  Toy Story seems ripe for an adaptation, but if a LEGO Incredibles game includes some of Pixar’s most beloved characters, such as Rex, Sully and Heimlich, then we’re all in for a treat.  Sometimes, we could all go for a trip to Pizza Planet, followed by a few scoops of softball-sized ice cream.  Sprinkles are optional — but encouraged.

And while LEGO Incredibles hasn’t been officially announced, we’re learning more (and more) about God of War, which is so close that we can almost lick it like a Polaroid picture.  God of War focuses a lot of attention on Atreus, Kratos’ son, who seems to be the anchor for Kratos’ mortality, as well as the light that shows the endearing side of Kratos, who is best known for yelling at things and then murdering them.  If God of War is going to unlock its full potential, then we don’t need a new mythos or new monsters, we need to see deeper into Kratos’ soul and consciousness.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Bloodborne, The Legend Zelda: Breath of the Wild, A Way Out, Star Wars and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.  Shit.  We’ve got a full plate this week.  You have to finish the slices of pizza before you can eat ice cream.  And before you leave Pizza Planet, play the claw game.  I hear the prizes are particularly friendly — and green!

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Announced – Coming September 14th

Square Enix announced Shadow of the Tomb Raider is officially launching simultaneously on September 14th on PS4, X-Box One and PC. According to the press release “Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be unveiled on April 27, 2018. Fans around the world can visit www.TombRaider.com for a chance to play the game and meet the developers at one of three exclusive reveal events”.

Watch the trailer below:

PG Thoughts: This rebooted series has been one of my favorite to play this gen. It is nice to see that it isn’t stuck on one console for a year, as I am sure that has hurt the sales of Rise of the Tomb Raider. It is a little disheartening that the Nintendo Switch is ignored at this moment, but I guess we shall see about that.
