Trophy Whores 308 – Lucia’s Last Stand

We promise this story won’t involve a mutant cure or an ill-conceived Dark Phoenix arc.  This week we bid farewell to another long-serving host, as Lucia, or Mark, if you prefer, follows his dream to become a world-renowned JRPG play-tester.  Since he’s a big fan of wrestling, and World Wrestling Entertainment in particular, we can’t let him leave without “wishing him the best in his future endeavors.”  Mark, that’s our parting gift to you.  You’ve been “future-endeavored.”

In all seriousness, Mark, we wish you the best, and we appreciate the dedication that you have shown to the Trophy Whores podcast and its listeners.  We will miss your weekly presence, RPG expertise and SoCal point of view.

Crash Bandicoot has returned to the spotlight, and we discuss the insanity of his new-old games.  We’ve played these games before, but they’re still a blast to revisit.  Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Crash Bandicoot, Knack, Until Dawn, Shadow of the Colossus and Mass Effect: Andromeda.

In a bit of big news, iHeartRadio streams episodes of Trophy Whores, 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 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.

Trophy Whores 227 – Donny Ain’t Misbehavin’

This week Donny, also known as the “Crunchmaster,” snacks during the show, but other than that, he is on his best behavior.  Donny has a good reason to play nice, too.  This week we have a guest, and Donny doesn’t want to act a fool.

While Donny minds his manners, Tricky steers our Platinum sailboat away from the alluring voices of the Sirens.  It’s a good thing that our guest can swim in the deep end, as we are liable to wreck at any moment.

Join our omnipotent battalion of weathered warriors and Platinum seekers, as we discuss, among other things, The Order: 1886, Super Meat Boy, Drive Club, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Until Dawn.  Donny still doesn’t like Metal Gear Rising, and I doubt that, that will ever change.  When he talks about the game, you can sense the displeasure in his voice. You don’t often see that kind of anger.  I’ve seen TrickyMic that mad — but only once.  He bought a bag of Starburst candies that contained only yellow pieces.  He was furious.

Trophy Whores 223 – Satyrs Attack In The Dying Light

This week we throw around opinions like we’re Sony tossing wads of cash at Naughty Dog.  In other words, it’s a normal week at Proven Gamer Studios.

Donny doesn’t like Goat Simulator, and, as per usual, he doesn’t hide his contempt. He’s even less likely to play I Am Bread, regardless of its undeniable charm.  Luckily, for him, we spend more time discussing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and God of War: Ascension.  Given that we have two Gear-heads on the show, I hope that you are prepared to hear all about The Phantom Pain.  Episode 223 is the precursor to the storm.  You have been warned.

Join our unruly gaggle of Metal-heads and mythology buffs, as we discuss, among other things, Dying Light, Until Dawn, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Grow Home.

You might excel at horror games, but as always remember that the freaks come out at night.
