The Average Gamer

The Invasion has been going for some time…

We went out to Piccadilly Circus in London on the weekend to see if the rumours were true.

They are.

I think we might have stumbled on a way to defeat the evil space invaders. The one we found definitely has some sort of predilection for cigarette butts. We didn’t dare disturb its evil machinations, but further research must be done to exploit this weakness if the human race is to survive the coming onslaught.

Let us know and send in pictures with locations if you see any more around the UK. Others are keeping careful watch in Paris, Amsterdam and New York. We mustn’t let our guard down.

Update 3rd August 06: Apparently these Invaders aren’t from Space at all! The idea originated from the person behind I wish that website wasn’t so Flash and Quicktime centred.
