Those guitar-pick-head aliens may have slipped from front-page National Enquirer material, but with Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton offering up so much free content (hint, snicker) you can’t blame the check-out-line rags for failing to cover the latest alien abductions and government cover-ups.  No, you’re not alone, we all believe in flying saucers too.  Relax, watch your X-Files reruns, and write a friendly message to your alien abductor on your belly.

You might tell them to abduct Blacksite, Midway’s sequel to what, in hindsight, might have been the best PS2 shooter—Area 51.  There’s no David Ducovny this time around, but the game looks a whole lot better, meaning the aliens look a whole lot yuckier.  In the demo level at E3 we got to tool around a Nevada trailer park bagging xenomorphs.  Yup, a trailer park.  Sort of like the one you’re in...  What’s that knocking around back?

Go ahead, get your shotgun, ‘cause if it’s not an alien coming to plant a tracking device in your sinuses, it’s a government agent coming to take it out.  Neither, of course, is acceptable.
