In this week’s collection of fun and hi-jinx from the gaming world, Antony and Darren discuss the games of the moment and the news and mood from across the bewildering bubble that is our games industry.
A blind eye could not be turned any longer as Antony and Dazza discuss the hot topic of the moment – the Loot Crate.

This weeks’ episode of The Lost Spark Podcast delves into Gamescom, the Microsoft conference and the gaps left in the foreseeable future for Xbox One X.

Also discussed is a good deal of VR speculation, pondering about if releasing multiplayer only games is really a good idea in the wake of recent attempts and more details about that exciting Star Wars Battlefront beta.
