Long time since I did it so have just started the first Black Mirror (the old and original) and am thoroughly enjoying, all over again, the stilted conversations and the erratic way Samuel walks from place to place wink

They just don't make 'em like that any more lol

What are you playing?

I really enjoyed the first Black Mirror. I wish I could erase my memory to play it like the first time!

I loved the stilted conversations and the way that Samuel walked! grin I replayed the game this past year, and enjoyed it even more than I did the first time around. In fact, I'd be ready to play it again this month. happydance

A couple of months ago Ross Scott (of Ross's Game Dungeon) posted a video review of the first Black Mirror.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvkcRSLfGHU

It was fun to see what he thought of it.
Probably best if you've played the game before.

The original Black Mirror is a fantastic game, pretty high up there on my favorites list. I still consider it the best of the series. The voice acting isn't great, it's true, but that's part of the game's personality, just like Nigel's odd way of speaking is part of The Lost Crown's. lol I'm also coming up on a replay of Black Mirror in a few games and am looking forward to it. Glad you're enjoying it all over again, Mad. thumbsup

Jenny, thanks for the link. I added it to my watch later list. smile

I enjoyed putting that torn photo together; it took me quite a while, but so satisfying to get it finished. yes

Arrgh - So I thought I would also replay Black Mirror - Put the CD in and installed it, but that dumb Star Trac (is that the right name?) security system won't allow it to proceed. I paid for that game; dammit I should be able to play it.


That will be ten Dramoi.

It is Starforce, Tally Ho. Either google for a Black Mirror NO CD fix or buy the game as a digital download from Steam or GOG. That will circumvent your problem. I have used the first method for my Black Mirror CD in the past, and it works. I have since purchased the game from GOG so that I don't have to mess with the copy protection problem.

Yes, Mad, I am very tempted to start the game again. grin

I've played the original Black Mirror at least three times, and recently replayed the "trilogy". The original is by far the best imo. The voiceacting, especially the choice of voice actor for Samuel, is not its strongest point, but I consider this game to be a minor classic in the genre. Don't care much for the other two games in the trilogy, but at least they are better than the "reworked" Black Mirror game from last year...

More on the StarForce story -

I went to the StarForce website, and found a utility that will diagnose problems.

Here's the message I got.
"Unfortunately, this application uses very old protection version 3.03.027.035 and will not run under Windows 10 x64.
You should contact your product customer support service and ask them to make a patch, which will either update protection system version or remove protection at all.
Unfortunately, StarForce company can't build such a patch since we neither have legal authority to produce any patches nor original application files required for that.

Please, accept our apologies for the inconveniences."

So again, although I paid good money for a game when it came out, if I want to replay if, I must buy it again. That really goes against the grain.

________________

BTW, there is a Netflix show called Black Mirror.
CAUTION! If you are at all queasy, or sensitive to language or violence or all-out sex, don't watch it. It's really bizarre. It has been compared to Twilight Zone, but no. Not. Nothing like Twilight Zone. The only similarity is that each episode is a stand-alone story.

__________

Anyway, enough blathering. I probably won't be re-playing Black Mirror. Those of you who do, enjoy. It's a really good adventure. wave2

Tally Ho, if memory serves, I have seen Black Mirror selling on GOG for less than $4 during a sale, and it will almost assuredly happen again. Not too bad a price to pay, even if you already have the CD.
