Another great game drops and with it comes great controversy as the Spark’s discuss the news of microtransactions lurking within the most eagerly awaited title of the moment – Metal Gear Solid – The Phantom Pain. We suspected already but have Konami officially revealed that they are MGSV’s real Evil Boss? Antony and Darren debate if this can ever be acceptable and at what point have these cash siphoning  (allegedly optional) transactions crossed the line to intrude upon the players enjoyment.

Questions are also asked regarding using the RockBand 4 legacy adapter to use 360 controllers on the Xbox One, a disk-less Nintendo NX being a good thing and Just how much time have we Wasted on Destiny.

In this week’s news section we have more Games, Games, Games than a Microsoft conference as we talk about the start of the awesome gaming season with great new releases coming from everywhere!

GearsofWar

Antony’s chainsaw gets revving over the long 3 day wait for Gears of War Ultimate Edition to release in the UK and asks why are we still conforming to a 20 year old hand-shake that has games releasing on a Friday?

With the gaming season about to start and Microsoft launching their first title in the ‘Greatest Games Lineup Ever’ – Gears of War Ultimate – we thought it would be fun to chat about our top 3 games that we’re looking forward to playing this year :
