Bjorn Is Back: Peggle 2 Footage

By Craig Pearson on October 10th, 2013.

I am making that face right now
I missed the awkward moment when Peggle 2 was announced, and then there was the Xbone timed exclusivity thing. I should have been excited that there’s going to be more Peggle in the world, but I was mostly miffed. MIFFED! Mucho miffage is kind of my reaction to the videos below. Three character videos have been released, showing off Peggle masters Bjorn, Berg, and Luna. The characters are cute and nicely animated, but they also take up a large amount of the screen. Just call me Miffy.

A World Of Hort: PVZ: Garden Warfare Undead Trailer

By Craig Pearson on September 6th, 2013.


My anger issues with team-based multiplayer shooters are well documented in the Logitech Warehouse. I’m cool until things are unbalanced, then Red Craig emerges. Red Craig is my inner Stephen King character. He is who the mice and keyboards in the warehouse warn their little transistors about. He’s why they sacrifice mice lasers to gods of Support Services. He’s the angry Glaswegian I keep hidden away, just in case I’m ever mugged or someone shoots me online, then he emerges. Watching the Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare zombie trailer made my palms itch. It looks really lovely and atmospheric, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy playing it. But as I do, I’ll give off the impression of hating every single second I am doing so. Trailer beneath.

Thank Goodness: Peggle 2 And PvZ: GW Not On PC First

By Nathan Grayson on August 21st, 2013.

Oh man, phew. I was worried there for a second, but now I see that I was getting all worked up over nothing. I mean, seriously: what if Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare and Peggle 2 had come out on PC at the same time they debuted on Xbox One? It probably would’ve spelled the end of all videogames – and, let’s face it, life – as we know it. The Xbox certainly would’ve sold markedly less than one unit as a result. That’s for sure. Thankfully, Microsoft and EA have teamed up to save the day, pushing the PC (and, I suppose, other platform) versions of Peggle’s second coming and PvZ’s green-trigger-finger-twitching reinvention into even murkier depths.

A 26 Second Peggle 2 Trailer

By Craig Pearson on June 21st, 2013.

My Peggle 2 fan art. I added the '2'. I'm an artist!
E3 should be a brilliant time of the year. Even if there’s nothing good to see, it’s at least fun to gather on Twitter and mock what’s being presented. I’m usually there, at the Command Station 3000 (my desk), dropping truth bombs (tweets) with the incisiveness of of Eminem crossed with Jed Bartlet (“Lol, me make fun of E3″). But this year, I just couldn’t face EA at E3. All I could imagine were shinier helmets on sports games, and the hollow promises of excited producers shilling for a Next Generation that seems to already be lagging behind what I viewed as the current one. And because of that world-weary attitude, I managed to miss the announcement of a few games I actually had an interest it. One of those being Peggle 2, which is what the trailer below remixes.

Peggle 2 Is Pretty Much Confirmed

By John Walker on December 9th, 2011.

It's my day off, I'm not going to mock up a Peggle 2 logo on my day off.

From a job advert posted on Gamasutra, it is revealed that PopCap are working on “a stylistic reboot of our Peggle franchise”. Which is a way of saying: NEW PEGGLE! Which pretty much confirms that rumour from last month, after naughty Adam Orth tweeted about needing a new art director for a Peggle project, before promptly deleting it and probably having his knees spanked.

Dodgy Rumour: Peggle 2?

By John Walker on November 11th, 2011.

Yes it is, little creature, yes it is.

Bloodhound-nosed Lewie P gets in touch to say he had a bit of an interesting encounter with a PopCap fellow, via the medium of Twitter. One that rather strongly suggested that the company might be gearing up for Peggle 2. Lead designer at PopCap, Adam Orth, sent out a tweet asking for an Art Director “for the Peggle franchise”. Lewie retweeted this, and then said on his own account, “Imagine Peggle 2″. To which Orth replied, “I am.” Which he has since deleted. Rather tellingly. However, Lewie had already retweeted it. So yes, an awful lot of he said/she said. Except without the shes. We’re going to contact PopCap to see if we can get an answer out of them. But in the meantime, let’s all just assume it’s true so hard that it has to happen.
