In this week’s Podcast we’re joined by special guest Spark James Thomas (@BIGsheep).
Darren and Antony are still hyper from the Star Wars Battlefront beta but as the dust settles on the battlegrounds of Hoth, things are not as rosy as they seem…
The Sparks discuss the post-beta Star Wars Battlefront news and debate Season Passes, feedback from the beta and how long the Battlefront excitement will last.
Darren despairs at the trend of the Season Pass, trembling at its inclusion in Star Wars is a true portent of the ultimate finality of the practice. It really does seem that no matter how load the disagreements are, in the end, its cash that counts and just like Destiny the money will roll in and the trend will continue… But is it really that bad? It is down to choice after all…
In the news section we discuss the UK indie games scene is getting a much needed cash injection, Rocket League is going Back to the Future with out of this world DLC and the BBC is getting down with e-sports and showing live coverage of the League of Legends World Championship.
Plus, with announcement that Sony will be releasing the visually stunning Firewatch in February 2016, we discuss how February is becoming a second November with the likes of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Far Cry Primal, Deus Ex: Mankind Divide and Lego Marvel Avengers all releasing in the same month and we ask, where’s No Man’s Sky, will it be a PlayStation VR launch title?
