Peggle 2 on Xbox 360

Peggle 2 ricochets onto Xbox 360 on May 7

Though early adoption of new consoles is something I tend to avoid these days, there is one game that has made me jealous of Xbox One users: Peggle 2. Soon enough, the ball-bouncing lesson in geometry and rainbows will not be exclusive to t...

 
Garden Warfare review
Plants vs. Zombies has been on one wild ride since PopCap was acquired by Electronic Arts. What started off as a grassroots (hah) series with humble beginnings on the PC has become an exclusive-heavy franchise -- with Pl...   read

Learn botanical battle basics from Garden Warfare video

When you're engaged in war with the likes of plantlife or the animated undead, you can't just rush into the fray. Only a fool would do that. No, you have to study your enemy, and more importantly, know thyself. This gameplay video of Plant...

Garden Warfare live-action trailer has a porpoise

Every time I think that Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare can't possibly do anything else to leave me speechless, it goes and does just that. Maybe I should've dropped the expectation of any semblance of rationale the very second this...

Peggle 2 is getting head-to-head Duel mode for free

While it was disappointing to hear that Peggle 2's multiplayer is online only, the real tragedy here is that the game is currently an Xbox One exclusive. A future update will mark the return of Peggle's Duel mode and, thankfully, it support...

 
Peggle 2 REVIEWED

Review: Peggle 2

The original Peggle came out of nowhere. It took a simple concept of peg-based brick-breaking that had been a staple of gaming basically since the beginning, and added a unique cartoon sheen that gave it a ton of charact...   read

Peggle 2 will allegedly hit the Xbox One on December 9th

When the Xbox One launch lineup was announced, one title stuck out the most -- Peggle 2. I was a huge fan of the original and the pseudo-expansion Peggle Nights, so I couldn't wait to see what PopCap had in store next. Sadly, it was delayed...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare dated for Xbox

On paper, a team-centric third-person shooter multiplayer game based on Plants vs. Zombies sounds like a cynical mess, but from everything I've seen of Garden Warfare, it may well be one of my most anticipated games. There's a gun that is ...

Peggle 2
We learned the sad news this week that PopCap's Peggle 2 won't make launch day. But it's still "launch window" and it's still awesome in the way that only Peggle should be, so I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the near-final version I played last week.    read

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 huge Peggle fan! T...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare only has multiplayer

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 get us acquainted...
