Pre-purchase Plants vs. Zombies on Steam, get a free game

With nearly two weeks until PopCap’s latest creation, Plants vs. Zombies, is thrust upon the gaming world, I am becoming seriously anxious. Having spent entire summers playing custom tower defense games in Warcraft III, the things are sort of my jam, in case you couldn’t tell.

Steam sent out word earlier today about a special offer: if you pre-purchase the game for $9.99, you’ll get another $9.99 title, Heavy Weapon Deluxe, for free. Not a bad promo, but I think the real news here is that Plants vs. Zombies is being priced so low; I honestly didn’t see it coming.

Ever since Peggle won so many self-proclaimed hardcore gamers over, I think our perception of PopCap has changed significantly. With signs pointing toward Plants vs. Zombies being a damned fine game, are any of you finding yourself saying “casual games suck” less and “holy f*ck, this is so much fun” more and more?
