Sounds like an episode of Halflife I played the other night, where these ninja assassins sent by the military to exterminate the science personnel kept wiping me like a sponge. Finally I figured out how to ambush them with a satchel charge. One of their skulls bounced off the wall like a soccer ball. These newer videogames are so ugly, they're beautiful. Now I know what the Vietcong in the delta must have felt like when they dusted a Huey with a surface-to-air missile.
