The first ever Lost Spark Game of the Year podcast is here! Games have been played (and played) and the votes are in. 2015 was a fantastic year for games but which titles got Antony and Darren excited this year?
In this week’s news section The Sparks chat about Uncharted 4’s slip to April 2016 and speculate on what could be causing the delay – a final polish after seeing Rise of the Tomb Raider in action or perhaps even some kind of VR mode? Yes, we can dream!
Also, Radio 1 finally acknowledges gaming and PlayStation release their PS Plus games for January 2016.
In this week’s podcast, in light of Industry analyst firm Superdata’s report on the digital games market for October, showing a 7% year-on-year increase to $5.5 billion in global spend, the Sparks discuss what life would be like if gamers had a digital only future imposed upon them with games costing more than they did in store and ask, would there be a mass migration to the PC and its more reasonably priced online services such as Steam, Origin and GOG? Would the sting of high cost digital games on console make the initial larger financial outlay for a gaming rig worth it?
