Plants Vs. Zombies Quest In WoW: Cataclysm

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!

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

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?

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!

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…

Plants Vs Zombies… Online

Except not as sexy as that sounds. There’s a webgame version of Plants Versus Zombies available. It features three game modes – 14 levels of Adventure, Endless Survival and Vasebreaker – with 12 plans and 6 zombie types. And a new zombie type. Crikey. The biggest problem for me it actually shares with the new game. I lost my save, so would have to play through all the tediously easy early adventure levels to get to the actually interesting challenge modes. But for newcomers to the game, it’s a fine place to newly come.

Plants Versus Zombies Versus Evony

Oh God. Thanks to the forum, I’m advert-blogging. Which can only mean one of two things: i) Post-Darkfall review I’ve totally lost it or ii) it’s an awesome advert that needs immortalisation. Or maybe both. Anyway, Plants Versus Zombies has a new ad-campaign. It’s been seen over at the Penny Arcade – maybe they did it? If so, well done you, Mr Penny and Mr Arcade – and is well worth nosing at. And it’s under the cut because it’s too long to go above it.

Father-Mother Loves Plants vs Zombies

Inspired by my recent plea for Zeno Clash/Garry’s Mod mash-ups, veteran RPS reader Dartt revisits his own past glory to delightfully strange effect. A bigger version awaits you upon a click. The tragic absence of Tall-Nut aside, most excellent work, sir.

Tall-Nut: Here Comes My Man

We have all played Plants vs Zombies by now. And we all have a favourite plant, right? Maybe it’s the triple pea plant. Maybe it’s the sweetcorn catapult that lobs hunks of ghoul-paralysing butter. Maybe it’s the impressively apocalyptic Jalapeño pepper. For me, there is no question. Tall-nut is my super-unit, the answer to all my problems, the nemesis of all zombies. My one true love.

The Plants Vs. Zombies Review

Yet another plants against zombies game - is there anything original left?

PopCap’s latest, Plants Vs. Zombies, certainly won our attention with its lovely promotional music video, and drew us in further with an intriguing and hilarious trailer. But what about the game itself? Can it deliver on the giant pile of cute promises? Find out wot I think below, in Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s review.
