Marvel’s Spider-Hyphen-Man

This week on the Lost Spark Podcast Steve, Stuart and Antony swing into action to talk about two amazing games that are truly kicking off gaming season.

First up we have the spectacular Marvel’s Spider-Man; listen to Stuart and Antony talk at length about Spider-Man in our non-spoilery discussion.  How does the swinging feel, how is the combat, why did Peter Parker leave all those backpacks around Manhattan, and photo mode, that delicious photo mode.

The second amazing and eye melting game to get the Sparks excited is the return of definitive racing game, Forza Horizon.  Hear Steve and Antony’s hands-on impression of Forza Horizon 4 as they race around the Cotswolds in glorious 4K HDR.

Other hands-on impressions include Far Cry Zombie DLC and more from Steve on the recently 4K’d Master Chief Collection.

In the news section we have Switch online news and the limited edition Pokemon Switch coming out later this year, Alan Wake is getting the TV treatment, and Bethesda are holding a charity concert in aid of War Child UK.

After learning many lessons about holding back excitement and tempering expectation, it’s no surprise that the announcement of Horizon Zero Dawn going Gold has been taken with nothing but calm acceptance by the Spark team (as the guys pre order 2 cases of the game and almost stop recording to go and start queuing up down Amazon’s warehouse). Listen in to hear some of the background of the development of this game that so many of us have our fingers crossed for to be a true classic of this generation. Continue reading
