So, has anyone aside from me noticed that the Ethereals from the new XCOM game, floating around in red cloaks and grey helmets, look incredibly similar to some old friends of ours? When I first saw one I immediately thought "S'pht".
I thought it was an interesting enough to mention here even though the two species aren't similar beyond their immediate visuals. The Ethereals are the leaders of their alien armada; they are the slavers. They are also humanoid beneath their cloak and they have four arms they use for their psionic attacks.
Anyway, just thought I'd point that out.
