LOL at Image 2! :lol:

Not only do we get Kerberos productions in that shot, but we also get a Sword of the Stars Poster on the wall.

Some very cool screenshots.

Also: rrrrr... food

That absolutely counts, for pretty impressed, (very impressed)/2, and 1 (one) Gold Star.

Do the trees in some of those new screenshots seem unhealthy to anyone else? It looks to me like they have tendrils of black rot creeping out across the ground.

Oh I like these pics...Wish I had stumbled across FZ closer to the release (or on the day of release !!) Have to cope with waiting.

We all know the real song for a zombie invasion is "Don't stop me now" :wink:

Those screens look awesome. I am looking forward to this game so much.

One question...

From the screenshots, it seems like the zombie numbers are quite low. Now I'm not expecting or looking for Left 4 Dead hordes, but I hope it's not a case of....

Walk around, spot a zombie, kill zombie. Walk around, spot another zombie, kill zombie.

I hope it's a case of....

Walk down alleyway, turn corner, spot 7 zombies, check gun, see only 5 bullets, turn around slowly, walk back down alleyway, see 3 zombies behind you, panic....

I do expect that it has to do with 1) Time of day and 2) How many days have passed in the game until Z-day.

True. It's dark but the time seems to be early morning, so it's probably a mopping up job after surviving the nightly assault.

A number of those screenies show several zombies wandering around, so I dont think we have to worry about just a smattering of encounters...

Anyone else notice on the "rrrrr... food" screenshot the silhoutte around the corner, shown on the ground in front of our hero? Nice touch.

It looks like the use of the shadows in general set the right mood for the game. It'll be nice if it gives you the feeling that Chuck Heston's character had in Omega Man (or Will Smith in Legend, whichever you choose) when the sun was setting and he needed to get back to base. Looks creepy in the stills, can't wait to see it in game.

Two questions:
1. Who came up with the idea to put up a SotS poster?
2. And who came up with the Pepsi clone?
I realize that pulsars are not part of the Canadian military arsenal, but I find that if you shampoo an angry beaver aggressively with "oily hair" shampoo to dry out it's fur and rub it vigorously against a balloon before flinging it at the enemy with a trebuchet, you get a similar effect.

lol... movie poster: The Girl....

Also, is the sots thing (screenshot) of a Kerberos office or something, some expansion into Piety? The sign above the door looks a bit like the start of the word Kerberos, colors match too.
