We are quite certain that,
if and when aliens invade, they will manifest themselves in the form of an 8-bit nightmare. Row upon countless row of UFOs will move in a simple pattern across the sky, back and forth, dropping bombs. Governments from around the world will begin recruiting our top gamers out of retro arcades. The future of the galaxy will rest in their nimble hands. For a detailed account of this inevitable course of events, please rent 'The Last Starfighter' or read 'Ender's Game'.
