Welcome To Brickchester

This week Stuart and Antony are back for another bricktastic episode of the Lost Spark Podcast. The guys jump straight into what they have been playing and discuss the awesome new expansion for Forza Horizon 4, Lego Speed Champions. Already a Spark favourite this introduction of Lego into the Forza world is another stroke of genius by the amazing folks at Playground Games.

But that’s not all the guys have been playing, Stuart has been virtually thumbing his way through Xbox Game Pass, played Supermarket Shriek and jumped into Void Bastards.  Antony has FINALLY finished his play through of Days Gone, hear his final thoughts this week and by surprise, Overcooked 2 dropped a new DLC, The Hangry Horde which the Chesson house has dived in to and already 4 starred.  Hear Antony talk about the new exciting Horde mode in Overcooked 2 and it’s change in gameplay.
