Trophy Whores 260 – Helldive Into Doom

While Yield is fending off polar bears and killer whales in Alaska, the Trophy Whores — and Lucia — carry the torch through episode 260.  Lucia, who is a strong candidate to become the unofficial fifth Trophy Whore, joins the Whoresmen for the third week in a row.  If anyone can handle the silliness and absurdity that is the Trophy Whores podcast, it’s the man called Ionvein.

Between the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game, Mutants in Manhattan, and the latest movie, Out of the Shadows, pop culture is inundated in the ooze of the Heroes in a Half-Shell. Despite the low scores that Mutants in Manhattan has received, Donny probably ranks it above Watch Dogs, which is getting a sequel before summer of 2017.  Donny will, surely, have a terse spoken review — even if he doesn’t play the game.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, Helldivers, Doom, Watch Dogs 2 and Assassin’s Creed.  The Trophy Whores are all over the place this week, but that means that you get more bang for your buck.  It’s like walking into a restaurant and ordering spaghetti, and when you finally get your food, the server brings you a plate of pasta and an ice cream sundae.  Strap in for an adventure fit for four teenage turtles named after Renaissance painters.

Trophy Whores 256 – Resident Darrell Finds Gold

Resident Darrell joins the show (this week) and, before providing the best impersonations of Donny that anyone has ever heard, gives his thoughts on the Great Trophy War and shares the spoils of his latest haul of video games.  Darrell, a proud and outspoken member of the Remember the Loot crew, always brings his “A” game, whether it be a trophy war or a podcast, so even in Donny’s absence, the Trophy Whores don’t miss a beat.

Darrell joins the Trophy Whores on a great week, too, as there is some big news to talk about.  Sony Computer Entertainment and Naughty Dog are — finally — ready to unleash Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which has earned fantastic reviews. The Trophy Whores have always championed Naughty Dog, as Naughty Dog has earned that level of respect, and like many gamers, the Trophy Whores can’t wait to play Drake’s latest — and possibly last — adventure.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Mighty No. 9, Watch Dogs 2, and Tom Clancy’s The Division.  Tricky is gaga for The Division.  He will commit blasphemy to defend it.  Since March, Tricky has logged heavy hours in The Division, and if you speak ill of it, he will be sure to voice his displeasure.  Usually, that is Donny’s job, but this week we have Darrell, and he — like Donny — isn’t afraid to tell it like he sees it.
