We Spark Joy

This week on the Lost Spark Podcast James and Antony are back on mic duties so naturally the topics wander from Marie Kondo, to Kitchen Aid mixers, Super Bowl and the wondrous Piñatas that James has been crocheting.

We do talk about games, eventually, with news of H.Bomberguy (Harry Brewis) charity stream of Donkey Kong 64 making £230K for the charity Mermaids with some surprise guests popping into the stream.  We have all the details of the Anthem demo that arrives this weekend and the strange news regarding the online MMO, Atlas.

In the hands-on section this week James updates on the games he has been playing since his last pod appearance.  We have tales from the seas with Sea of Thieves and Return of the Obra Dinn, Florence on mobile and hear as James takes on Smash Bros. for the first time since the N64.  Antony recounts his time with the Call of Duty Blackout trial, dabbles in Soul Calibur VI and has a blast with user created maps in Forza Horizon 4.
