Not played interceptor in ages, will have to download it some time, once I get a mouse working rather than the MC-ed mousepad of this damn laptop.
But coincidentally I just woke up from the weirdest dream, centered around UFO defense. Of all things to dream about, woke up from an opiate nod, and had been playing UFO all night and most of the day, and a lot recently, but had been dreaming about things from the aliens POV, mutons and sectoids arguing about where to deploy, both races on the same terror ship, and then setting down somewhere, I forget where, and a lot of shooting, whenever a civilian was killed, I'd see that kind of polaroid snapshot type picture as in the intro video, of a muton's claw squeezing the grip of a plasma pistol or rifle, civilians lying bleeding or killed, often fried or blasted to smithereens by plasma fire and grenades. Mutons tearing up civilians, before X-com showed up, legging it out of their skyranger, lots of shooting, and the muton force then teleporting up to their terror ship, taking off, leaving a few unfortunate and slow sectoids behind, that were promptly ripped to pieces by that kinda squat guy in the personal armor who wields an autocannon.
Weirdest dream I've had in a long time! Entertaining though, at least when it didn't feature the fear felt by the doomed sectoids, and their rage at being left behind on the battlefield as their terror ship took off without them.
