Did Walmart Just Spoil The Big E3 Announcements?

This week on the Lost Spark Podcast Steve makes a triumphant return to chat with Antony about all the latest goings on in the world of gaming.

This week the guys chat about Nintendo’s online service, the end of the Virtual Console, and in a somewhat ham-fisted move, did Walmart Canada pull the trigger on their website update too soon and spoil big E3 surprises?

We have hands-on impressions of Far Cry 5, Firewatch and Max: Curse of Brotherhood from Steve and Antony discusses his latest obsession, Cities Skylines on Xbox Game Pass as well as hands-on with Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze on the Switch and a spooky add-on for Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Xbox One X, All Kit And No Caboodle

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.
