Old Influenza is back, “dancin’ with the one that brung him”, doing what he does best, talking about games he’s been buying! Given how busy E3 week was, this episode of the podcast comes a little later than he’d like, but its here nonetheless. Join Phranchize as he boils the piss off recently acquired Microsoft ‘First Party’ studio Undead Labs’ zombie sequel, State Of Decay 2. The Good, The Bad, The downright ugly, interspliced with stories from within the game and many a random rambling… Don’t call it a review!

Thats a wrap on E3 2018! The hype has been engorged for a dangerously long stint and its time for Old Influenza to dish out his E3 Award for “Best In Show”.

With his 4th podcast in 24 hours, Old Influenza wraps up the final “big conference” of E3 2018, the Nintendo E3 direct; featuring several years worth of Super Smash Bros Ultimate gameplay and fighter reveals. There was other news, but the start of the direct seems like so long ago, I couldn’t honestly be sure that all the other stuff isn’t just myth and legend or false memories.

Two down, who knows how many more to come?! For now, join Old Phranchize for the third time in 24 hours as he boils the piss off the Sony E3 2018 conference. Just how visceral is The Last Of Us 2? How much of a mess have them pesky Mongols made in Ghost of Tsushima? How good does the webslinger look slinging web in Spiderman?…. What the actual fuck is Death Stranding? All this and more, and its live… NOW! (This E3 joke has almost ran its course, I swear).

The E3 train keeps rollin’! Two in a day for Old Phranchize as he boils the piss clean off the Bethesda E3 conference. Expect talk aplenty in regards to Doom 2, Fallout 76 and its divisive ‘online survival’ approach, all kinds of mobile nonsense and a couple of tasty teasers to wrap up. With Ubisoft, Sony and Nintendo still to come, its going to be a busy week for Old Influenza, so strap in, and give 5* reviews freely!

Come join Phranchize as he runs downs all of the announcements at Xbox’s best E3 conference to date, and watch in pure wonderment as he boils the piss off everything in sight!

The hype is palpable at PBG HQ… Meaning that one 30-something year old man is sitting alone in a spare room converted into a studio, pissing his little knickers! Its the build up to E3, hence the clever “Pre E3” title, and Old Influenza needs to vent some of his E3 hype before he blows a games based gasket. Join Phranchize as he gets in amongst the weeds of what is expected/rumoured to be at this years E3; rambling his way through the big conferences and picking his ‘Choice Cuts’. Don’t forget to get involved on your social media outlet of choice.

Old Influenza is back after falling foul of multiple technology failures; serendipitously, to talk about a game based around multiple technology failures! Have story telling masters, raconteur supremos, ‘Quantic Dream’ managed to reach the heady heights of their seminal title ‘Heavy Rain’? Find out, as Phranchize boils the piss off it and delivers his verdict in that rambling, shambolic style he has found infamy with. The look, the feel, the mechanics… all wrapped up nicely with a very well signposted spoilery bit right at the end. Interested to find out how badly things turned out for Old Phranchize and his android buddies? Make sure you stay till the death!
