Peggle 2 looks like everything I want it to be

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...

Review: Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time
by Chris Carter

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's head after another with reckless abandon.

But the original game was also a premium purchase, and with $20, you got every bit of content right away. The sequel, Plants vs. Zombies 2, offers up a very different approach -- it's free-to-play only, and, at first, it's launching exclusively on iOS devices.

Everything about this approach has disaster written all over it, but somehow, Plants vs. Zombies 2 actually pulls through mostly unscathed.

Peggle 2 announcement video turns into a fever dream

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.

I am so happy Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare exists
by Brett Makedonski

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 actually pulled the trigger on one of them.

In hindsight, it shouldn't be surprising. Nothing PopCap does should be surprising anymore. But rather than capitalize on a kitschy spin on the well-known game, PopCap seems to have created something with some true depth.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare caught me off guard

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...

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is about eating the best taco ever

Plants vs. Zombies 2 gets July release and new subtitle photo
Plants vs. Zombies 2 gets July release and new subtitle
by Allistair Pinsof

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 Facebook and posted on the official YouTube as well as revealed on Boogie2988's YouTube channel instead of PopCap's which is kind of baffling.

Outside of some hilarity, a new subtitle, and launch window, the teaser doesn't offer much information on the upcoming sequel to the tower defense hit. Though, you will see some recognizable faces, including Xbox Live's Major Nelson.

This sequel arrives in addition to the Facebook spin-off Plants vs. Zombies Adventure which will launch May 20.

So, hey, that's one summer release to look forward to, right?
