Sea of Thieves is known as one of the most jolly multiplayer games out there — but, for Twitch streamer Hitbotc’s mother-in-law, the game is so morally corrupt that she’s forcing him out of her home.

Sea of Thieves is a first-person, shared-world multiplayer game that allows users to sail the high seas with their friends and dive off the plank into all kinds of swashbuckling shenanigans.

Tasked with hunting for treasure, trading goods or participating in swordfights with other players, there’s not much that can be considered unwholesome about the game; but that isn’t stopping one Twitch streamer’s mother-in-law from banning the title from her home.

Twitch star ‘Hitbotc’ is best known for his Sea of Thieves streams, alongside other various games and broadcasts. Having moved back to Oklahoma from Oregon, the broadcaster had meant to live with his mother-in-law while he and his wife saved up to build a house in the Sooner State.

However, in a broadcast on September 28, Hitbotc revealed that his plans to build his dream home have come to a sudden halt, thanks to his mother-in-law.

According to the streamer, she claimed that she felt Sea of Thieves was a “demonic” game, and didn’t want it played under her roof any longer.

“She believes that Sea of Thieves is an evil and demonic game, and she doesn’t want it played in her home anymore,” he explained.

Of course, Hitbotc isn’t going to stop playing his most popular game on stream, and is currently seeking out alternative accommodations rather than concede to her odd demands.

“Being the honorable man that I am, we are gonna be moving out, because we’re not gonna stop playing Sea of Thieves,” he continued. “It doesn’t make sense, you guys.”

However, the dispute over Sea of Thieves isn’t tearing anything apart. Hitbotc just wants to “do the right thing” and honor her wishes, and has thanked her for helping him make the cross-country move earlier this year.

“Though I disagree with my mother-in-law, I still very much love her,” he told Dexerto.

“I am so thankful for what she has done for me and my family by giving us a place to live during our move across the country.”

Hitbotc has been met with ample support from his fans as well, many of whom are just as shocked as he is at such the sudden turn of events that hearken back to many a child’s parents’ reaction to Pokemon and Harry Potter in the early 2000’s.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
