Old Phranchize has been sailing them choppy waters, where servers allow, and has made land to bring you his thoughts on Rare’s new pirate romp, “Sea Of Thieves”. I promise, that’s it for the pirate based puns… all pure, golden opinion from here on out. Beautiful seas, empty worlds and memorable moments ahoy!… Ok, that was the last one.

Two things Old Influenza does well are 1. Buy games… and 2. Talk incessantly. On this episode, expect both in spades. If you’d be so kind, allow Phranchize to thumb his opinions on both Burnout Paradise Remastered AND, latest Xbox preview program offering ‘The Darwin Project’, straight into your earholes. Topped off nicely with a couple of ‘Choice Cuts’;

  • The UK adds another game to the ‘banned’ list,
  • Drake and Ninja set all new, non-tournament Twitch streaming record.

  • Fortnite goes mobile,

What does Old Influenza do when a week goes by without him buying a game? Launch a new show theme, of course!

On the first installment of choice cuts (read in Phranchize’ news voice);
