Trophy Whores 332 – A Recurring Case of Anal Glaucoma

Tricky can reel off Marvel’s Infinity Stones from memory.  Let’s all give him a round of applause.

According to the PlayStation Blog, Horizon Zero Dawn was the king of all things PlayStation in 2017.  Congratulations to Guerrilla Games and Aloy, as they took home an impressive amount of honors and awards — as decided by PlayStation users and fans.  We hope that it isn’t too long until we again pal around with the fiery and brave Nora warrior.  After all, we’re never safe from the robot menace.

This week, Tricky and Alex cover a lot of ground and seem to discuss anything — and nearly everything — that is on their minds.  From the first (ever) WWE women’s Royal Rumble to smoke breaks for employees, if you want a podcast that is as delicious as a fried bologna sandwich, then you’ve found it!

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Inside, Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered, Dark Souls: Remastered and Horizon Zero.

Trophy Whores 294 – The Great Platinum War of 2017

As we continue on the road to show 300, the Trophy Whores bring you big news out of Square Enix, who have signed a deal to publish a Marvel Avengers video game. The game, which will be developed by Crystal Dynamics, is part of a larger collaboration with Marvel Entertainment that entails multiple games.  Given how Crystal Dynamics have re-invigorated the Tomb Raider series, Square Enix’s new Avengers game seems to be in good hands.

What’s more, the crew discusses controversy surrounding Dead Effect 2 developer BadFly Interactive.  The team, a smaller group of game developers, tried to protect their game from negative reviews, albeit using allegedly shady means to reach that end.

NYCC 2015: LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Panel

The LEGO video games are always fun to play and LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is something that I have been looking forward to. There is always a sense of fun and lightheartedness in LEGO videogames while also telling a complete and fulfilling story. They really raised the bar with LEGO Marvel’s Superheroes, and it was promised that LEGO Marvel’s Avengers would be even bigger and better.

In addition to having content based on the two current Avengers movies, Lego Marvel’s Avengers will also have content based off of some of Marvel’s Phase Two movies. This includes Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Iron Man 3. There will also be some content based off of Marvel TV shows such as Agent Carter.

In addition to the return of the open world Manhattan from LEGO Marvel’s Superheroes, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers will also have an open world Asgard, Shield HQ, Malibu, Washington D.C., and more. With such a big world to explore there is a huge roster of playable characters to fill it. Because the roster is constantly being updated there is no final count on characters, but it is somewhere above the 200 mark. This does mean that there will be some obscure characters, but the development team assured that they will all have some form of connection to the Avengers.

Hulk Buster

There will be some bonus stuff to expect from this game such as searching levels for the Collector. Inside jokes and Stan Lee cameos are also prevalent along with appearances from Iron Pig. While not officially announced, DLC is expected in the future. It would also appear that there will not be heroes of the web-slinging variety. While also being his normal cameo self, Stan Lee will also be a playable character with a Stan-Buster suit.

I think this will be a fun game that will last for quite a while. There will plenty of areas and characters to keep any level of Avengers fan entertained. Whether or not it will be better than LEGO Marvel’s Superheroes will have to wait to be answered until January 26th.
