  1. The thing is with Black Mirror, I want to like it. I should like it. Which is why I pop into this thread occasionally when a new series comes out, or is coming out, to see if there’s any episodes that pique my interest. Most of them end up being pretty rubbish.

  2. 4 hours ago, Hanzo the Razor said:

    It's one of life's eternal mysteries. It seems having all the talent, charm and charisma of a draught excluder stood on its end is enough to be called an actor these days.


    I mean, c'mon. The guy's got a fair amount of charisma and talent -- talent which he has mostly pissed away with poor choices admittedly. And he seems like a cool guy in interviews and stuff.

  3. Fascination (1979)


    Jean Rollin as a director is hit and miss for me, but this one is more hit than miss. Nobody shoots mist shrouded woodland and crumbing old ruins and castles quite like Rollin. There are some beautifully framed shots. Especially of Brigitte Lahaie's boobs. And she's never looked more iconic than when striding through the woods in a black robe wielding a scythe (although walking around with two big hounds either side of her in Grapes of Death is pretty close).


    Even the poor Rollin films have a certain something, that something being a dreamlike quality where you have no real idea what could happen next.

  4. I like the mix of zombies in this. Keeps things fresh. My most feared are probably the Butchers. I keep those fuckers at range and machine gun them if I can. I also dread seeing a Screamer. Always target those quick sharp to stop other zombies going crazy. Some of the earlier zombies, like the Crushers, now feel like child's play.


    Agree about the skill card system. A lot of them I've picked up seem pretty useless, with the Autophage ones having one too many penalties for any extra powers you might get. I've kept the same cards for most of the game, ones like the flying drop kick and ground pound. I mix in a few that create explosions to stun big groups of zombies.


    Two main quests from the end now and about half the side quests still to do. I'll probably power through to the end and mop those up after.


    Quick question: ages since I played the first one, but didn't that have driving in it? Or am I thinking of something else?
