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

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...

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?

Peggle is free on PC and Mac for a limited time photo
Peggle is free on PC and Mac for a limited time
by Chris Carter

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 other offers for PopCap's social games on the same landing page, but really, we know what really matters here, and I'd hate to make Cat Tut angry. Once you pick up the game for free, if you're ever in trouble in the world of Peggle, just remember: Cat Tut likes yarn.

Later this year, PopCap will be releasing a free app on iOS and Android devices. Based on Plants vs. Zombies, Talking Zombatar allows you to take care of your own zombie, Tamagotchi-style. Dress it up, make him dance, take photos and videos, and more.

There are even AR capabilities that allow you to insert your zombie into your living room. You can also make your zombie repeat your speech in its own slurred zombie-ese.
