Peggle 2's Windy the Fairy DLC is worth the cheap entry fee


It's $2
Apr 23
Windy the Fairy has crash landed in Peggle 2 as the newest master, and she also happens to be a $2 piece of DLC. It's not just a character pack though, as you'll net 10 new story levels (which can be used in multip... read

I've got a serious Peggle addiction, and I don't think it can be cured. Not even with more cowbell. Peggle 2's about to get even more "masterly" with the addition of Windy the Fairy, the latest bit of DLC to hit the Xbox One.... read

A new mode, map, and ability upgrades

I've been pleasantly surprised by the way Electronic Arts and PopCap have handled Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. First, the game itself is loads of fun -- the foundation is solid. But more than that, they don't have paid... read

Impressions: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (Xbox 360)


A downgrade, but still absolutely worth playing
Mar 08
It's as if we slipped into some alternate dimension. The long-awaited Plants vs. Zombies 2 went straight to mobile, passing over PC fans, and while it wasn't bad -- not at all -- I sure lost interest. Instead, it's PopCap's t... read

This is just like...my opinion, man

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,... read

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 feature

Plants vs Zombies: The Last Stand is an arcade game


PopCap and Sega team up?
Oct 04
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. read
