Reboot number 7 is under way! The train has left the station on “The Seventh Coming” and the question on everyone’s lips is; “How long are the tracks this time?”.

Old Influenza is back after a lengthy stint away, lost in vast open worlds, “trip advisoring” his way across ancient Greece and the Plains of of America, to bring you another “Don’t call it a review” on Game Of The Year contender and Rockstar Games behemoth… Red Dead Redemption 2. Expect a severe lack of form, negative amounts of structure, many a tangent and a 10 gallon hat full of opinions!

Yet another giant open world, crammed full of ‘stuff’ and ‘things’, has been boxed off and given the #PBG treatment. Lend Old Influenza your ears while he boils the piss off the latest Tomb Raider instalment, “Shadow Of The”. The look, the feel, the story, the mechanics – not a stone left unturned! The question here is, given its impressive list of accomplishments, why does Phranchize feel this game will be painfully absent in the Game Of The Year conversation?

With the well-storied technology failures behind him, Phranchize is back, banging on about games like only he can! More an evolution of PBG than a relaunch, Old Influenza lays out future plans for the show; but first, Phranchize delivers the cure for the dreaded ‘Gaming Funk’ (Disclaimer: May not work for absolutely anyone). Get caught up with where he’s been and what he’s been playing before diving into some good Gamescom 2018 news… Expect nonsense.
