People think I'm kidding around when I talk about how excited I am over PopCap's Peggle 2. In fact, recent discussions on this topic have had me defending myself. It's not a crack on Xbox One's launch lineup -- I'm a hug...
Short clips of Peggle 2 -- so this is what it's come to ... okay! Look, I'm desperate. PopCap has "gameplay preview" videos of the Peggle Masters Bjorn, Luna, and Berg that offer a quick fix to get us through the wait for th...
We recently told you about a new Plants vs. Zombies arcade game coming out of a tag team between PopCap and Sega, but we had no details to share at that time.  Thanks to Arcade Heroes and their copy of trade publication ...
A new image on Sega's arcade Facebook page teases a new Plants vs. Zombies game. It gives no information other than a name: Plants vs. Zombies: The Last Stand. The name sounds cool but we have no idea what kind of game this would be. A full-on arcade cabinet? A redemption machine? It's going to be cool, whatever it is.  We'll bring you more information on this game as soon as we get it.

In retrospect, perhaps I should've expected that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare would be multiplayer-only. But that doesn't make its lack of a single-player mode any less disappointing. Even a short one -- something to ge...
Last we heard, the mega-successful Plants vs. Zombies 2 had clocked in 25 million hours of playtime with gamers around the world. But as per another recent update from Popcap, we now know that the game has been downloaded "ne...
Well this a relief. After the curious PC-less launch of Plants vs. Zombies 2, many fans of the series were similarly disappointed that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was only announced for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. But n...
It's an unending joke at the Microsoft booth here at gamescom. Nearly every group that walks into the booth seems surprised and amused that the shiny new Xbox One is powering this decidedly simple ball bouncing game. A lot of...
There are few things more satisfying in all of gaming than lining up that perfect Peggle shot -- the one that gracefully slides across every last peg you intended to hit. Gosh, I need Peggle 2 in my life more than I realized...
You can play as zombies in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. There are four zombie classes, including, adding a scientist and engineer to expected ones, like a ranger and an all-star. I love that the Engineer rocks a plumb...

Plants vs. Zombies launched in 2009 on the PC and absolutely changed the face of tower defense games. It was a cultural phenomenon, inspiring even the most infrequent of gamers to play for hours on end, popping off one zombie...
PopCap and EA had many of these really funky 18-inch Mega Munny custom pieces on display at their booth here at San Diego Comic-Con today. Many folks from the game development community took one of Kidrobot's big-headed blank...

This video is Reason #1,349 why I love PopCap. Unwilling to rest on its laurels following its representative's notable Peggle 2 E3 enthusiasm, this short clip has surfaced. Cue the "Ode to Joy" as the explosions, rainbows, and creepy human unicorn faces fly. Extreme Fever, indeed.
One of the biggest surprises of E3 has been PopCap's announcement of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare as a real game. Following a spoof pun-filled campaign with the likes of "Petal of Honor", it turns out that PopCap ...
My biggest E3 surprise so far has been Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, a game I didn't think would even exist much less look as compelling as it does. I mean, a third-person action game based on Plants vs. Zombies should...
So remember in the first Plants vs. Zombies when you randomly found a taco? Crazy Dave immediately bought it off of you for 1,000 coins, and then he pocketed the taco to eat later. Well in Plants vs. Zombies 2, Crazy Dave fin...
During Electronic Arts' E3 2013 press conference, PopCap kicked things off proper with an announcement of the ridiculous, shockingly great-looking Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. Right after a live demonstration, the pres...

PopCap beat us to the punch by relabeling its game Plants Vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time within a new teaser trailer that also reveals the game's July release. This trailer was announced on the official Plants vs. Zombies Fa...
Peggle is a pretty old game, so coming up with an interesting way of saying "Peggle is free, guys," can be hard. Well, it would be hard, if there wasn't tons of Peggle noir fan-fiction to go around. There's also a lot of othe...
[Update: Plants vs. Zombies 2 is still coming. Crisis averted!] PopCap Games has just announced Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, a new game on the Facebook platform. If you "like" the landing page, you'll have a chance to play ...
Plants vs. Zombies is free right now for the iPhone and iPad. You can get the game for free until February 28, so you better act quick if you somehow don't own this addictive as hell tower defense game yet. Seriously, what is wrong with you?! That's it for the news, so here's Laura Shigihara performing her Plants vs. Zombies theme because it's just the best.

I love PopCap mostly for making some of my favorite games (current addiction: Solitaire Blitz), but I also love them for giving to charity and good causes. Today, and for the next 72 hours, proceeds from in-game boosts, or "I...
What's your longest time spent playing one game straight? Mine is...well, the length of the longest JRPG that I've reviewed for the site. I marathon those because they're all 80+ hours long. Maybe there's a world record for t...

PvZ is already a great mobile game, but a new update brings the iOS titles much closer to including everything found in the full PC and Mac originals. Both the iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch versions of Plants vs. Zombies will ge...
You know Crazy Dave, right? He's that pan hat-wearing nut job from Plants vs. Zombies. I didn't think the guy could even form a proper thought, but here he is with an original Hip Hop track! Crazy Dave's first single, "...
