Trophy Whores 299 – Beauty and the PAX East

While Tricky and Troy are cruising the show floor at PAX East 2017, the triumphant trophy-touting trio of Mark, Alex and Yield discuss the biggest PlayStation news to emanate from Boston.  Although the original Penny Arcade Expo, PAX Prime, has spawned annual sister shows, and dropped its “Prime” moniker, seemingly lessening the impact of each convention, it’s always exciting to read the news that breaks at each show, as well as the games that appear.  If you are a gamer, and if you’re reading this, we assume that you are, then you’re never sorry to talk about a PAX.

In response to popular demand, Mark, otherwise known as Lucia, also known as the ionvein, hosts episode 299 and leads us through all of the hottest news in the PlayStation ecosystem.  Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Zero dawns remains a hot topic, as Aloy and her grand adventure continue to win the hearts and praise of the gaming community.  Horizon Zero Dawn is a magnificent game, and it, as well as Guerrilla Games, deserves all of the praise it has received.  You can’t celebrate the game without praising its makers, Guerrilla Games.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Horizon Zero Dawn, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Friday the 13th: The Game and Diablo III.

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 285 – Get the Towels Ready

It’s Alex’s first show back from a lengthy hiatus, and the Trophy Whores have already discussed — at length — the classic 8-bit Mega Man series.  Alex wouldn’t have it any other way — especially if everyone agrees that Mega Man 3 is the best game in the original series.  Tricky argues for Mega Man 4, and while he might have questionable taste in video games, his argument lends credence to the power of nostalgia.  You’ll smile when you hear to what lengths Tricky went to stay up (past his bedtime) and play Mega Man 4.

Lucia sits out this week, probably because he is disgusted with Tricky’s passion for Mega Man 4, as well as The Division, but even with four hosts, the Trophy Whores record for nearly three hours.  What can you do with three hours?  Listen to this episode, silly.  You can also take a long-ass nap, but we’re talking video games, and you want in on that action.  When a podcast starts with heavy amounts of the Blue Bomber and professional wrestling, then you know that things are going to run long.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Extra Life, Black Friday, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Titanfall 2.

With the Game Awards approaching, the Trophy Whores try to predict the winners for two categories: Game of the Year and Most-Anticipated Game.  Per usual, every nominee deserves recognition and praise; however, among the Trophy Whores, Uncharted 4, Overwatch and Horizon take top billing.

Trophy Whores 271 – Beating a Dead Horse with No Man’s Jokes

This week the Trophy Whores press on without Tricky.  In other words, episode 271 has started off on the right foot — even though podcasts don’t have feet.  Granted, with the boss on hiatus, there’s plenty of opportunity for this ship to careen around the corner and run into a wall.  The Trophy Whores podcast for fun, and they never take themselves too seriously.  It’s an art form that they’ve perfected.  What’s more fun than having fun?  If you ask Donny, he’d say cracking jokes on No Man’s Sky.

No Man’s Sky, like a horse that’s been beaten beyond death, has been getting a lot of attention; however, lately, much of that attention hasn’t been positive.  It seems that the game hasn’t been able to match the hype that went from a flame to a bonfire.  Everyone saw that coming.  While No Man’s Sky might deliver on some of its potential, the consensus seems to be that the game has under-delivered.   Yield, who has been riding shotgun in the hype train, isn’t discouraged by the naysayers, but he sure doesn’t sell us on his (lack of) enthusiasm.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, (more) No Man’s Sky, Dead Rising 4 and PlayStation 4 firmware update 4.0.

Alex has a special shout-out this week.  On September 16, at Gallery K on Barret Avenue in Louisville, his friend Avalon is holding an art gallery for the survivor modeling project, This is MY Body, which features sexual assault survivors.  Through this event, these brave women hope to reclaim their bodies and raise sexual assault awareness by speaking out against a pervasive problem in our country.  Admission is free.  Magazine copies featuring the models and photographs will be sold at the show, and the profits will be donated to the Center for Women and Families.  The gallery will be open from 4:45 pm to 10 pm.  It will be a fantastic event, and if possible, you should go.

Trophy Whores 264 – Mightiest Number of 3

Alex runs the show this week, so you know that he’s gonna wreak Havok — like Alex Summers in X-Men: Apocalypse.  When Tricky is away, the Trophy Whores will play like three bandits who happen upon an unsupervised truck of video games.  The Trophy Whores, and Proven Gamer, don’t endorse larceny, or theft of any kind, but if it will make for a good simile in a banner introduction, then we’re all for it.  Truth is, we appreciate great video games, clever pop culture references and brilliant similes.

This week the Trophy Whores mix new- and old-school, as they take you to the depths of Rapture and the woods of Whispering Rock Summer Camp.  With BioShock and Psychonauts on the agenda, Alex perks up like a Green Bay Packers fan in September.  Tricky perks up during football season, too, because it means that comic relief, courtesy of the New York Giants, is on the way.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, BioShock Infinite and Mighty No. 9.  Critics have not been kind to Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune and Comcept’s spiritual successor to the beloved Mega Man series.  While bad reviews can be detrimental to sales, Alex, a longtime Mega Man fan, and Yield aren’t deterred by the naysayers.

Trophy Whores 259 – Shell-Shocked By Superheroes

Nate is not a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan.  The former unofficial fifth Trophy Whore has never been afraid to brandish his opinion like a bludgeon, so you know that he can be brutal.  Nate dismantles Mutants in Manhattan.  Donny is a bit less harsh when describing his experience with Mutants in Manhattan, but, unfortunately, if you have been expecting another Turtles in Time, then you need to lower your expectations.  Rocksteady and Bebop deserve much better.

In that same vein, of heroes being super, The Trophy Whores, as well as Nate and Lucia, bounce from the Heroes in a Half-Shell to Charles Xavier’s X-Men, who must stop the wrath of Apocalypse from destroying our world.  Smart money is on the X-Men.  Even if there are casualties along the way, the X-Men always seem to come out on top.  Xavier doesn’t train wimps.

Nathan Drake and Batman are pretty super, too, and if you consider how often Drake saves the day, as well as how often he escapes peril, then we can safely and legitimately call him a superhero.  Drake is a hero, so why don’t we take that extra step.  Batman has been a revered superhero for decades, but now that Rocksteady Games’ Arkham series has gamed so much fame, we can all appreciate the Dark Knight’s badassery so much more.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, Helldivers, Hitman: Agent 47, Overwatch, and No Man’s Sky.  The mystery surrounding No Man’s Sky has garnered a lot of press and attention from gamers; however, if you want to play No Man’s Sky, then you will have to wait a little longer, as the game has been delayed.  In the meantime, Nate recommends Overwatch, which has received positive reviews left and right.

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 250 – The Triumph of 250

The Trophy Whores have made it!  After 250 — official — episodes, and being cemented as borderline Internet celebrities, the Trophy Whores are still going strong, fueled by the adoration and support of their awesome listeners and fellow trophy hunters.  The guys can’t thank you enough for listening, as your support means the world to them.  In truth, Trophy Whores would not have made it this far without you.  Thank you!  The guys are already thinking about what to do for episode 500!

The Trophy Whores don’t talk about Microsoft often, but talk of cross-network play between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has the Four Whoresmen intrigued.  Donny is skeptical; however, Tricky, Iyield2no1, and Alex see the benefits of cross-network play between the rival platform holders.  Can you imagine Crash Bandicoot and Dr. Neo Cortex working together?  As you might imagine, the maniacal and hapless genius represents Sony’s rival.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Batman, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan.  Alex is looking forward to Mutants in Manhattan, as it reminds him of Turtles in Time, his favorite — absolute favorite — Ninja Turtles game.  If you were a kid and/or arcadegoer in the 1990s, then you probably spent pockets — and pockets — full of coins on the Turtles in Time arcade machine.

Trophy Whores 240 – Grand Theory Uncharted

This week the Trophy Whores delve into their trophy war against the Remember The Loot podcast.  Tricky has all of the details, and since he misses the first part of the show, Alex, Donny and Yield are left to speculate and shoot their mouths off.  You know, what Donny does normally.

The guys also share their New Year’s resolutions.  Alex might have to wait until next year to accomplish his main 2016 gaming goal, but Tricky’s perpetual goal of attaining the Platinums for every Hannah Montana game seems always around the corner.  Donny has long held the blue ribbon in the Platinum race, and Yield is bringing up the rear; however, it is a new year, and anything can happen!

Join our platoon of PlayStation warriors and infantrymen as we discuss, among other things, inFAMOUS, The Wolf Among Us, The Order: 1886, Ratchet & Clank, Psychonauts 2, Grand Theft Auto, and Uncharted 4: A Theif’s End.  If you are a fan of crazy Uncharted theories, then Donny has one for you.

Trophy Whores 236 – Reborn Legends And Rampant Sequels

This week, we have “a beefy show,” which is Tricky’s clever way of saying that we have a lot (of nothing) to talk about. If you haven’t seen any videos from PlayStation experience, then the Trophy Whores have you covered like an Amish woman in a strip club.

According to Yield, the PlayStation Experience was pretty boring; however, the guys have compiled all of the best bits, so you are covered.  As always, there is good and bad, but if you are patient, then the gems will shine brilliantly.  Hopefully, you are prepared to ride this rickety barrel over a waterfall of information.

Join our den of thieves, physics, and martial arts masters as we discuss, among other things, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Final Fantasy VII, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Ratchet And Clank, Pyschonauts 2, and … Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn?  Yeah.  That game.  The guys are still shocked.  Somewhere there’s a dumpster fire that deserves that money.
