Humble Weekly Sale Offers PopCap Games For Charity

By Graham Smith on March 7th, 2014.

Very excellent.

This week’s Humble Weekly sale is a PopCap bundle, but with an added twist: EA are giving 100% of their cut to charity. Two charities, in fact, between which you can choose your split: the V Foundation for Cancer Research, and The Melanoma Research Alliance which specifically fights skin cancer.

Pay more than $1 and you’ll get a copy of Peggle (download size: one Peggle), zen-like match three puzzler Bejeweled 3, word puzzler Bookworm Deluxe, and two other games. Pay more than $6 and you’ll also get Plants vs. Zombies, Zuma’s Revenge and Peggle Nights. You’ll even get Origin and Steam keys for each one.

Maybe this is Kindness Week and we only just realised?

And Mulch More: Plants vs Zombies 2 Mere Months Away

By Alec Meer on March 27th, 2013.

Please don't make Tallnut a microtransaction

Happy face: PopCap’s Plants vs Zombies 2 will apparently arrive this Summer. I love PvZ. I want more PvZ.

Worried face: PopCap now belong to EA, who want to put microtransactions in everything they can. I’m crossing fingers, toes, unmentionables and internal organs that PvZ2 can somehow escape this disease and just be a lovely, complete little game of its own.

Still Rotting On Your Lawn: Plants vs Zombies 2

By Alec Meer on August 20th, 2012.

Best of all the news: Popcap have announced Plants vs Zombies 2.
Worst of all the news: We won’t get to play the vegetation vs vegetative tower defence sequel until late Spring next year.
Medium news: basically no details apart from that and “hordes of new Plant and Zombie types.” The press release makes up for it by saying “and mulch more” though.

PopCap Are Getting Weirder: New PvZ Song

By John Walker on September 15th, 2011.

Wabby wabby woo.

You know the phrase, “more money than sense”? PopCap have an awful lot of money…

Plants Vs. Zombies continues to be a sensation on every format it touches – I’ve heard that it’s soon coming out for digital calculators and answer-phones – which is presumably bringing in enough money to pay enough people to create something as spectacularly silly as the latest… trailer? Video? Proof that there’s something in the air conditioning at their headquarters?

Scream of Joy: Plants vs Zombies Boardgame

By Alec Meer on February 15th, 2011.

It's my birthday in two weeks. This should be out for that otherwise IT'S NOT FAIRI’m very, very disappointed in all of you. This news broke yesterday and NOBODY TOLD ME.

Spotted at Toyfair by Kotaku was… was… I can barely say it. It’s just too beautiful to be true. Was…

Was a Plants vs Zombies boardgame. At last, the divided PC/boardgames mind of RPS is united.

Crush Your Gnomes: PvZ Garden Ornaments

By John Walker on January 5th, 2011.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww!

Rock, Paper, Shotgun is always first with the news. Apart from when we’re last. For instance, this Plants Vs. Zombies garden ornament collection first appeared in March last year. But I don’t care, because I just saw it for the first time, and no one else I’ve shown has seen it before, and it’s gorgeous. So there. They’re the work of a collection of people at Californian-based Moose Studios Pottery. You can see lots of individual photos on their Facebook page, which appears to be as official a website as they have. If you’re in Clovis CA, why not see if they have any left? (Thanks to Tina K. for the link.)

Plants Vs. Zombies Quest In WoW: Cataclysm

By Quintin Smith on September 20th, 2010.

Bless. As we know, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is bringing all kinds of apocalyptic change to Azeroth, and what could be more apocalyptic than a quest recreating PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies? The new Peacebloom vs Ghouls quest can be found in the Hillsbrad Foothills, and is such an absurdly detailed recreation of PvZ (albeit with only 6 plants) that the whole thing must have been done with PopCap’s consent. Aww. A video of the level by RPS’s own eager commenter TotalBiscuit can be found beneath the jump.

New PvZ Zombie: The Grave… And Beyond!

By Kieron Gillen on July 29th, 2010.

Man, it's like I'm almost not even trying.

That was quick. Following on from yesterday’s news that the Dancing Zombie is being removed from Plants Vs Zombies due to the legal wroth of the Jackson family, the muddy-funsters at PC Gamer reveal the new dancing zombie, which basically looks like I did when I had hair and went to the perpetually-70s-stuck nightclubs in Stafford. And let’s celebrate this momentous event with an entirely gratuitous linking to Zombina & The Skeletones…

Michael Jackson Family Force PvZ Re-Design

By Quintin Smith on July 28th, 2010.

No, I didn't finish it. Finished Defense Grid: The Awakening, though.

Remember those Michael Jackson-looking zombies from Plants Vs. Zombies? Not anymore, you don’t. The MTV Multiplayer blog has an announcement from PopCap which confirms that the Dancing Zombie is undergoing a redesign following complaints from the Michael Jackson estate, who wanna be startin’ something.

Weekend Gossip: Spore RPG? PVsZ 2?

By Kieron Gillen on July 12th, 2010.

Yes, I remain the king of photoshop.

Just catching up with the Internet chitter-chatter suggests that a couple of announcements may be incoming. Perhaps most predictably is that following Popcap sending a Save The Date August 2nd 2010 with a zombie hand attached people are speculating that Plants Versus Zombies 2 is going to be announced. More unusual is the news that leaked out in advance of next week’s San Diego Comic Con is that the EA’s panel will feature “a brand new, Sci-Fi Action-RPG based on the DNA of Spore.” VG247 speculate this could be “Darkspore”, which EA trademarked earlier in the year. This will have to go some to actually impress people, but you can see the logic in doing an action-RPG based on some of the still-brilliant character-creation technology. I’m at San Diego, so will try and bring you an update straight from the con floor, unless I’m lying, passed out on the con-floor. Which is far from unprecedented.

Plants Vs Zombies: They Live! Also, Are Live!

By Kieron Gillen on June 26th, 2010.

I suspect Laura is the person least likely to keep people chopped up in her basement. That's just the vibe I get.

Having spent all Thursday working on my World of Love presentation and Friday actually doing it, I’m catching up with the gaming Internet. Hence, seeing Kotaku linking on Thursday to Laura Shigihara’s performing the song she wrote and performed in Plants Vs Zombies, There’s A Zombie On Your Lawn. Ah, 2009 flashback. ‘Tis very cute, and you’ll find it below…
