Ode To Joy: Peggle Free On Origin

Do we really like any of this stuff? We are doing it all ironically, yeah? I mean, guns and shooting and murder and spaceships and walking and wacky physics and animals and Simulators, it's all a bit much, isn't it? I'm only doing this because it's rubbish, yeah? Perhaps we should think about the affected 'irony' that curtain-twitchers insist ruins modern culture, but we can…

Humble Weekly Sale Offers PopCap Games For Charity

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),…

Peggle 2 Is Pretty Much Confirmed

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?

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…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 4/5

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything? Did you even read the words of esteemed colleagues Rossignol, Walker and Smith detailing the first three parts of this Olympian list of The Most Important PC Games Of All Time? I am quite sure that I, Deacon…

Peggle Nights: Free!

Via an act of minor skullduggery, Popcap's Peggle (PEGGLE!) sequel may be had for nil-dollars. All you need to do is pop over to their site and sign up for their new Popcap Passport service (expect newsletters, inevitably), and then you can gift Peggle Nights to a friend - or to an alternative email address of your own. Cheeky! Oh, and there's a collection of…

New Peggle! Free Peggle! WoW Peggle!

Oh, Peggle. I remember when you were just an innocent wee lad, our precious little boy, wouldn't say boo to a goose. Now you're out there in the big wide world, rubbing shoulders with the elite with nary a backwards glance. Just don't forget that you're still, you're still Peggle from the block. Yes, we've had Official Orange Box Peggle, Disappointingly Similar Sequel Peggle and…

Peggle Inside WoW: World Collapses In On Self

One massively compulsive game playable within another massively compulsive game? Why, that's like mixing Pringles with heroin. Yes, an official (from Popcap's end, at least) Peggle plugin has been released for World of Warcraft. Which is a) terrifying b) exciting and c) supports the viewpoint that MMOs are not merely a genre anymore - they're a platform all of their own these days.

Peggle Extreme(ly Cheap (In Fact Free))

While we're all deep in the "Man, remember that 2008!" demi-ironic naval-gazing, let's take it further. Remember 2007? Ah, those were amazing days. Remember Peggle Extreme, the Orange-Box-included bonus mini-Peggle game? That headcrab on the unicorns head was funny and similar and... oh, no, can't stretch this out. Peggle Extreme is now free to anyone with a Steam account. If you haven't played it yet…

Steamy Peggle Nights (For Half The Price)

The sequel (of sorts) to our favourite ball-based game of last year has been around for a few weeks now, but grumpy, sensible types - myself included - had refused to buy it direct from Popcap, preferring to wait until it showed up in Steam for that vital install-anywhere thingy, and the hope of a lower price. And now it has, which is good news…

Peggle Nights!

Quick survey: has anyone heard of a game called Peggle? Peggle Nights is out! Woo! Nothing much more needs to be said. It's £15 from Popcap, and there's a demo on the site. New Peggle! (Clearly it's not more Bookworm Adventures, but there's still cause for celebration). We'll be playing the full version and will discuss it in childishly excited tones soon enough. Big thanks…

Peggle Is Good For You

The real purpose of press releases is to issue outrageous statements to as many journalists as possible in the hope they'll namecheck you when they inevitably repeat it. And hey, it works. Popcap send me a release saying stuff like "Bejeweled 2 and Peggle were shown to reduce anger by 65% and 63% respectively" - of course I'm going to post that. It's all part…

RPS Interview: PopCap on Casual, Peggle & Valve

I don't need to do the maths to know that the game that's been mentioned more times than any other on Rock, Paper, Shotgun is Peggle. While the gleeful pachinko riff might be our obsession, for casual gaming luminaries PopCap, it's just one more horse [unicorn, surely - Ungulate Ed] in an already unbelievably successful stable. Riding a wave of cult credibility in the wake…

Games For 2008: Peggle Nights

"Write about Peggle Nights," the Mighty Sentient RPS Computer told me. "But there's no information about it whatsoever," I meekly protested. There was a brief whirring. "WRITE ABOUT IT OR I WILL RE-APPLY THE NODES." Peggle Nights, eh? How exciting is that?! It's Peggle, but at night! Oh please help. All that's known is the name, thanks to a mention in the Christmas ish of…
