Review: Peggle Blast

My criteria for enjoying a game with microtransactions is simple -- am I having fun, and can I consistently have fun without feeling like I need to pay out? Unlike some people who hate microtransactions on sheer principl...

Free update for Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare adds tweaked classes, tacos photo
Free update for Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare adds tweaked classes, tacos
by Darren Nakamura

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare has already done right by its users by providing good post-launch support via free downloadable content, and it is continuing on that path with tomorrow's Legends of the Lawn update.

The DLC features a host of character variants that add options to both sides of play. Additionally, a new mode called Taco Bandits is included, which is described as capture the flag, but with tacos instead of flags.

Legends of the Lawn should release for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One tomorrow, at the low price of zero dollars. You can't argue with that.

Kill time with Bejeweled 3 now that it's free on Origin photo
Kill time with Bejeweled 3 now that it's free on Origin
by Jordan Devore

It may not carry the same weight as past "On the House" offerings like Dead Space or Battlefield 3, but the latest freebie from Origin, Bejeweled 3, is a great game in its own right.

The popular match-three puzzler is free to download for PC and Mac until October 28, 2014.

It's about what you'd expect -- both from the genre and Bejeweled, specifically -- but sometimes the familiar is all you really want. Lots of modes in this installment. It's pretty fun.

Wear the carcass of Chester Cheetah in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

I was prepared to get mildly annoyed at this Cheetos partnership with Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, despite the fact that it's not the first time the game has dabbled in brand-sponsored character variants. (There were ...

Garden Warfare's Suburbination update adds another mode and character photo
Garden Warfare's Suburbination update adds another mode and character
by Jordan Devore

This week's free new update for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare adds Suburbination mode, a capture-and-defend game type in the same vein as Battlefield's Conquest and Call of Duty's Domination. Gardens & Graveyards is still where it's at, but this is a decent distraction.

The DLC also includes the Plasma Peashooter, who is playable immediately without the need to spend in-game coins; the Crash Course map; more stuff for Garden Ops including the vampiric Baron Von Bats boss and the Treasure Yeti; and a bunch of "bling" customization items.

Garden Warfare has become my go-to "unwinding" game and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Finding an annoying hiding place as the zombie soldier and picking off plants is way too satisfying to stop. You're in for a treat next week, PlayStation gamers.

Play Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare in bed with Remote Play

I played a ton of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare on Xbox 360, and now I'm getting into it again on PC. Still super fun and arguably one of the best shooters of the past few years. On August 19, the game comes to PlayStat...

Peggle 2's Jimmy Lightning is less exciting than the first DLC

Peggle 2 is one of those games that's good to just pick up and play every so often, and whenever a new character drops, I get the itch to play again. This time the newcomer isn't an original character like Windy the Fai...

Peggle 2 adds Jimmy the gopher, dubstep

Classic Peggle Master Jimmy Lightning makes a return to zany peg-clearing action in Peggle 2 today, but he's doing so with a new style about him. Since we last saw Jimmy, he got really into dubstep. I'm not kidding...

There goes your day. Just one round, you say. And you look up and see that it's 2:30 p.m. and that you've forgotten to eat lunch. Or go to work. Yep. Peggle 2 is out for the Xbox 360. It is probably my most-played Xbox One g...
