Anthem Is Getting Off To A Rough Start

This week on the Lost Spark Podcast Stuart and Antony are back together to discuss all the latest news in the world of gaming and of course when these two get together they always end up talking about cool AV tech and cinemas.  This week is no exception but don’t worry the guys do dive into the news about Borderlands 3, Anthem crashing PS4s and the excitement builds for the announcement of Respawn’s Star Wars game, which is due at Star Wars Celebration Chicago in April.

In the hands-on section this week Stuart has been wandering the apocalyptic wastelands of Hope County in Far Cry: New Dawn and testing his skills with Trials Rising.  Antony’s hands-on this week include completing the somewhat clunky Crackdown 3, jumping into the 10 hour trial of Anthem and trying out the new sci-fi metroidvania game from Double Fine, Headlander, now available on Xbox via Game Pass.

Overlord

Perpetual Loop of Waiting

It’s Episode 145 of the Lost Spark Podcast and this week the Lost Spark team chats about last Sunday’s Super Bowl, Yorkshire Pudding Day, (you can guess who the co-host is this week!) and lots of gaming news too.

In the news section this week the Sparks discuss the rumours that Sony are focusing all 1st party studios on PS5 development only, Xbox announces their GDC talks and it has got the Sparks excited about the possibility of Xbox Live on Switch, iOS and Android, and news that made Antony extraordinarily happy, Tequila Works have announced a PSVR sequel to the classic comedy ‘Groundhog Day’, In ‘Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son’, you’ll play the charming but arrogant Phil Connors Jr., trapped back in Punxsutawney.

In what we’ve been playing this week Steve continues his play through of ‘Life is Strange’ and runs around Hogwarts in Lego Harry Potter on Switch.  Antony’s hands-on time has been split between his first dabble with the Kingdom Hearts series, Kingdom Hearts 3 and gets chased around Raccoon PD by Mr. X in Resident Evil 2.  We also have hands-on impression of the second Anthem demo and the newly released Apex Legends, the free-to-play Battle Royale game from Respawn.

Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son 

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.
