And Mulch More: Plants vs Zombies 2 Mere Months Away

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

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

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?

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

I don't look like this. Yet.

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 Meer, am wasting my time attempting to impart my own wisdom on this matter to your feckless minds, as is Intel’s AppUp developer program for having the consideration and grace to so thoughtfully sponsor this series. You’re probably all too busy fiddling with your genitals and snorting heroin at one of those ‘rave parties’ I hear young people go to every night. I shall say my piece regardless.

Crush Your Gnomes: PvZ Garden Ornaments

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?

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.
