I've had it with doom, halo, Xcom (chryssalid nightmares), Mechwarrior, and Fallout

In doom, I dreamed that I was a cacodemon eating pitiful space marines for breakfast

In halo, I dreamed that I was a covenant elite

In Xcom, I dreamed that the chryssalids were chasing me

In Mechwarrior, I dreamed that I was driving a mech, annhilating everything in my path

And lastly, I dreamed that I was riding a nuclear bomb, just like the pipboy in fallout.

Strange dreams, no?

#36. When you've done something stupid you think you can simply reload.

#37. When you barracade your doors and windows as they are possible entrence-points to your house.

#38. When you want to isolate doors and windows from the rest of your house.

#39. When you think fireworks pointing out of your window counts as 'missle defences'

#40. When you are borred you simply make time go faster by pressing the "1 hour" button.

#41. When you see an odd red square in the bottom of your view every time you see someone you don't like.

Then they fire this green stuff at you - :blink: HEAVY PLASMA, take cover.

Once, i had a dream that the aliens were invading my house, so i pulled out my hev plasma, ran out the door, and then used the gun to utterly disentigrate the house. . .it was fun. i should try that in a game.

Truly, I keep finding them everywhere! Usually they are door sounds, alien screams or UI sounds (button press, screen popup).

#35. When you keep telling NASA that there's a hidden alien base in Mars!

You don't have to tell them.. all them nutty UFO watchers have already pestered them about Cydonia far too much by now, due to all those initial shots of the Cydonian region way back when that made people think there were pyramids and 'the face' built in the region by sentient life..

Probably why they just gave Raven the lump of cash and told him to be quiet.. Most likely turned into standard procedure as a way to keep people from bugging them.
"Here, take some money.. Just shut up!"

18. When you convert your vaccum cleaner into a hovertank

I have got to try that one of these days..

23. When you wonder what happens to the aliens in alien containment

What DOES happen to those aliens?

27. When you wonder where the Men In Black are in Xcom (and why they were cut)

X-COM agents should get Series 4 DeAtomizers as standard equipment..

30. When you make a heavy plasma out of tin cans, old PVC pipe, hairspray, and bubble gum.

But you use bubble gum in the construction of the Psi-Amp! (well, pink bubble gum at least)

I'm 24 and 41.

Once I dream a couple of medium scouts hanged on the sky, near my home, and going to church I watched three of them coming back from negotiations about Earth surrendering. Our president Zapatero told them that not only Spain would help them, but also he offered his balls (I'm sorry, but that was the dream) because he always wanted to be like them and MC all the party. But Bush, Blair, Chirac and Schröder said no. So it was the start of the war, and knowing that I went back home searching for a laser rifle or at least one heavy cannon and beat thos bastards's asses.
57. When you see lights that dazzle you in the horizon, due to sun reflection in big metal surfaces, you see. There is a UFO-port!!!!!
58. When someone tells you he saw something, like an insect, dark and with antennae you run until you are in Australia.
59. You plan a perfect crime, it's a murder and the plans are these:
You buy X-COM: UFO Defense, you give it to your hated enemy and make him play. You wait a couple of week until he has meet Chryssalids. Then you dress the prefect chryssalid disguise and knock in his door a dark night.
Or this
You begin like previous plan, but this time you get a friend from the army (or the police, somebody with weapons), you give him the game. When he knows Chryssalids you convince your enemy to knock his door with the perfect chryssalid disguise

I've really played it too much. Yesterday I dreamed my home was invaded by thirty cocoraches (they cam in a battleship. This is a joke). (But this is not) so I set highest degree of alert at home and all the family took heavy plasmas to kill them. And we opened wardrobe doors with a live grenade in our hands.

60. You try to persuade world leaders that they schould create secret organization to fight against aliens, make you commander and fund you first base plus add a few million dollars. You are very disapointed when they decline.
61. You try to fight aliens on your own. You just need personal armour and laser rifle. sadly you cannot find them anywhere so you think they are still unresearched.
62. So you keep going to universitety everyday and ask how going laser weapon research, after two weeks you are very disapointed - no progress. But that's really because even only 10 scientists schould research that in one week. You could do research by yourself but you aren't scientist and don't have laboratory.
63. You try to find/buy some alien alloys because they are needed for your personal armour. So far no luck.

. . .and if someone gets into your head and starts telling you what to do, and you find yourself unable to disobey, don't panic, it's just your mom.
Justice will be dispensed by cannonade and cutlass, and all manner of remorseless pieces of metal.

Take one more step, and I swear, I will kill you so hard you will die to death.

one time, I was about to take apart my phone to try and fix it, and right before I popped it open I actually tried to save. Well, I really just looked up and to the left (for the file menu) before I relized that it was real life.

Defineately agree with #36!!! As for dreams, once I walked out of some building and saw a battleship slowly rotating over the UN. Said "shuckeroonies" and woke up. Never really had a chryssalid nightmare, except one time I felt someting really close to me and had that "I'm screwed and about to die because there's a chryssalid behind me" feeling right before you wake up. When I opened my eyes the cat was right next to my head.

#65. You open the door from aside, and hold it for other people. Then laugh at them in your head when they thank you. "Yeah, you think I'm being nice, but someday you'll be the dead one. He he he."

#66. When you see a green glowstick you get nervous for a second, thinking, "Plasma clip? ... Nope."

#67. You're about to step off a platform on th 8th floor thinking you will slowly descend until there is something under your feet, then someone grabs your shirt.

#68. When the neighbor upstairs stomps because you're too loud, you start looking around for a grenade to chuck at the ceiling.

#69. When you notice that the concrete sidewalk is divided into squares you think "4 TUs each, 6 diagonally"

#70. When your job is sucking you think about manufacturing Laser Cannons at home instead.

#71. When you enter an elevator you wave your arms upwards.

#72. You get a line of sight that involves multiple mirrors on someone you hate right before realizing you don't have a laser weapon on you.

#73. You forget that you can climb over things, instead of shooting them or walking around.

#74. You're terrible at apintball, you just sit there waiting for reaction shots. When you feel scared you put the gun down in case you go berzerk.

#75. You're confident you can put out fires with smoke, because they can't coexhist in the same tile.

#76. You're confident you can walk through fire aslong as you don't stop in the middle.

#77. When you catch fire you carry on for 5 more turns before realizing it will not go out on its own.

#78. You wonder how far bodybuilders could chuck a HE.

#79. It's dark, and you didn't bring flares, crap!

#80. You are unimpressed by UFO documentaries, they all look like firestorms!
