Red Dead Redemption 2’s Gameplay Has Us Excited

This week on the Lost Spark Podcast Steve and Antony take mic duties to give you all the gaming news of the week and hands-on impressions of the latest games.

We’ve got a bumper crop of news this week including details from the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate direct from Nintendo, where everyone’s favourite brother, Luigi suffered a somewhat shocking moment.  Red Dead Redemption 2’s new gameplay trailer has the Sparks incredibly excited and rockets Red Dead to the most anticipated game of 2018 (if it wasn’t already!).

Hands-on this week include a lot more Overcooked 2 as Steve takes to the kitchen for the first time and Antony gives his final thoughts on another great addition to the Overcooked series.

Also in the hands-on section, Steve goes “retro” and fires up Oblivion on his Xbox 360 and Antony takes a punt on Madden 19.
