PSA: Peggle is free on Origin again

I haven't thought about Origin in a while, but I think of Peggle often. It's such a timeless classic, and I can hear the celebratory anthem of Ode to Joy and the little "bump" sound effects in my head. If you have no idea what I'm...

OG Peggle is free on PC through Origin

If you're like me and you have an itch to play some good old Peggle in a wonderful 1600x1200 resolution (like I did in my youth) and watch balls hit other balls while you stare into the void of those black bars on each side of your screen a...

The Games with Gold lineup for March 2017 is...okay?

I'm a little shocked at the game selection for Games with Gold next month. Usually Microsoft kills it in terms of big-name titles or critically acclaimed indie hits. This month, though, we're getting a bunch of nonsense on the Xbox One and ...

The ten-hour Garden Warfare 2 demo is back

Oh, hey, this sounds familiar! EA is offering a ten-hour trial for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. That's plenty of time to figure out if this particular type of team-based shooter is to your liking. I know it can be hard to carve out...

Review: Bejeweled Stars

It's hard to believe that PopCap Games is turning 16 years old. Once recognized as the seminal "casual games" company with hits like Feeding Frenzy and Dynomite, it was acquired by EA in 2011 and hasn't been the same since. But unlike a lot...

PopCap aims for the moon, ends up with Bejeweled Stars

It's actually been 6 years since Bejeweled 3 and a cool 15 since the series' first iteration, even if I still can't reliably spell Bejeweled correctly. One of the reasons King is worth $6 billion is its match-3 Candy Crush, which hadn...

Temper your expectations for May's Games with Gold

If April's Games with Gold lineup was the best yet, and I'm inclined to agree with Brett that it was, then whatever Microsoft has in store for May can't possibly stack up. I had that sentiment in mind when reading over the list of what's co...

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes is a mobile collectible card game

PopCap is taking a break from tower defense for a crack at collectible card gaming with its next Plants vs. Zombies title for iOS and Android, PvZ Heroes. The project "began over two years ago as a paper card game prototype" designed in cre...

Garden Warfare 2's first free DLC drops tomorrow

This week, there's almost certainly going to be a big dropoff in the number of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 players who stick with Rose because they like to top the scoreboards. And thank goodness for that. PopCap is releasing a maj...

Garden Warfare 2 is going to bring Rose down a notch

If you've spent any amount of time playing Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 online, you undoubtedly see Rose when you close your eyes at night. There she is, way off in the distance, grinning. She knows you can't escape her homing shots...

Review: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Chris and I were thinking about holding a fight to the death to determine which of us would get first dibs on Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, as is the traditional way to end internal kerfuffles at Destructoid, but we called it off at...

The Garden Warfare 2 open beta starts today

The Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 beta begins today. If you have an Xbox One or PlayStation 4, just head to your respective storefront and download away. It should be live in most if not all regions by this afternoon. You don't need ...

Garden Warfare 2 has a full-on hub world

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 looks far more fleshed out than I had originally expected it to be. If all you care about is competitive multiplayer (which was super good in the original!), you'll still be able to melt hours away with ...

EA is handing out free Garden Warfare coins

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was one of my most-played games last year. What a fun shooter! I won't get back into it, but I don't see the harm in opening a few card packs. As a celebration for passing the eight-million-player mark, EA...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is out in February

The eternal plants versus zombies conflict returns on February 23, 2016 -- that's when Garden Warfare 2 is hitting PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Thinking back on how many hours I poured into the first game, my fate is sealed. It was a e...

Meet the six new Garden Warfare 2 characters

A part of me doesn't want to hear any more about Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 knowing full well that it's not releasing until spring 2016. I was way into the original. I'll be way into this. The cast includes six new classes on top ...

Log into Origin again for free Zuma's Revenge

Origin's last few On the House offers haven't done much for me, but this? I like this! Zuma is one of life's simple pleasures. That, and -- don't judge! -- Feeding Frenzy. For a limited time, Origin users can download the sequel, Zuma's Rev...
