dear gamespot blog thing,
I seem to have leveled up very quickly and without my knowledge, skipping level 6 completely...so now I'm at level 7.
Sounds like a dirty word, wonder what it means. Let me research it, hold tight for a moment....
....listen to this!
Their appearance seems to be based on the Greys of popular culture.
Sectoids are typically the first aliens the player encounters and among the easiest to kill. Sectoids are typically armed with standard alien weaponry and while Sectoid soldiers have no special abilities, Sectoid Leaders and Sectoid Commanders can have psionic abilities. Sectoids are neither particularly resistant or vulnerable to any specific form of attack. When the player encounters Sectoids on alien terror missions, base attacks or at large UFOs they are usually accompanied by at least one Cyberdisc.
An aquatic offshoot, the Aquatoid, appears in X-COM: Terror from the Deep, although in-game details suggest the Sectoids may have been the offshoot. Sectoid also appears as a Level 7 rank on CNET Networks GameSpot and were also seen in the screenshots from the unreleased title X-COM: Alliance.
Learn something new every day. Hmmm, so I have no special abilities and am easy to kill. After all, it doesn't say I'm a sectoid leader or a sectoid commander. It just says....sectoid. Gee, thanks gamespot.
Well, at least I now know my place a bit better.
But I'm not too discouraged, because my birthday is coming up! Yay!
On top of that, Phantasy Star 0 is coming out and I think I might get it.
Just saw Paranormal Activity, not super scary, just kinda creepy. At one moment, the people behind us were laughing, which made me laugh because their laughs sounded funny. Like they were grown adults and they couldn't stop belching it out. I think they were laughing at the part when she gets dragged off the bed.
Well, its all fun and games for the audience. But what if it was YOU who was getting dragged into the hallway? I don't think they would be laughing then....or maybe they would. That would be funny, but off-setting too....
