Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville grows out of early access

Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville, the latest shooter spinoff to the goofy tower defense original, released proper yesterday after a short stint in early access. Popcap have been carefully watering it with content updates for a few weeks, and now it’s ready to blossom into its final form. They’ve released a pun-filled musical trailer to celebrate.

Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville launches Founders Edition for eager gardeners

I can't tell you how or why Plants Vs. Zombies - that verdant tower defence thing - became an arena shooter. It seems to have worked out well for Popcap, at least - especially considering that older thing turned into this mobile monstrosity. I'm sure those shooters they keep making are good. Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville was announced today. It looks pretty nifty,…

Plants Vs. Zombies 3 announc- oh for… it’s a chuffing mobile game

Good news: EA have announced Plants Vs. Zombies 3. Bad news: it's free-to-play again, and microtransactions were a blight on PvZ 2. Nullifying news: but this time it's just a mobile game so who even cares. Ian Arts, you are a monster. After the microtransaction-muddled Plants vs. Zombies 2 and the I've-heard-they're-good-but-they're-not-what-I-want multiplayer Garden Warfare spin-offs, I had hoped EA might return to plain ol'…

Feature: It's like Bejeweled but with a frog

Have You Played… Zuma Deluxe?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The lesser loved of Popcap's moreish games, lacking the bombast of Peggle, character of Plants vs. Zombies or the pure relaxation of Bejeweled. Still, I love Zuma, a game about a frog spitting balls at a big line of balls.

Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 Gets Timed Trial

"All flesh is grass," goes the popular saying (listen for teens chanting it as they skip to school). The conflict of Plants vs. Zombies revolves around this sentiment (look for it stenciled on alley walls), and it's tragic. Plants are irate that zombies won't let them sink their roots into their festering flesh for nourishment. Zombies believe plants are denying their role in this cycle,…

Garden Warfare 2 Is Still A Thing, Gets Free Update

Ever since Plants vs. Zombies turned into a multiplayer shooter in Garden Warfare, I somehow manage to forget that it's a thing that exists in the world. I guess that my subconscious is trying to protect me from the idea of EA taking a cute and quirky franchise and turning it into a multiplayer shooter filled with references to other EA franchises. That does sound…

Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 Coming Feb 2016

Multiplayer shooter Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 [official site] is not the game I'd want next from PopCap's (former?) tower defense series, but a fair few folks popped up in the comments to say they dug Garden Warfare when John griped about the shift. So hey! For folks who want more, or those who fancy pelting zombies with fruit, here's news: Garden Warfare 2…

Frogzapoppin’: Zuma’s Revenge Free On Origin

Zuma's Revenge [official site] may be a lesser sequel to PopCap's fine ball-blasting action-puzzler Zuma (it's essentially a colourful Resident Evil 4 without player movement, yeah?), but it's still some pretty fun froggy action. If you have an Origin account (and probably if you don't too), it's perhaps worth downloading for free as the latest freebie in the scheme EA chose not to call "Ahhh…

Oh: Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 Announced

What I'd wanted next from Plants vs. Zombies was a tower defence sequel not all guffed up with mobile microtransaction-y stuff. What EA gave us was a third-person multiplayer shooter, Garden Warfare. I'm sure they thought they knew something we didn't. They still do, as EA today announced Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 [official site]. The sequel will take the action to suburbia, bringing…

PvZ: Garden Warfare PC ‘Not A Port,’ Apparently

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare has been out on Xbox One since February. It's still coming to PC - and soon, in a couple days, in fact - but it's awfully tardy at this point. Perhaps it was actually developed by Ents, creatures known for their gnarled hardiness and deliberate approach, but hardly their sense of urgency. Regardless, it's finally almost here now, and PopCap…

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…

Dark Side Of The Prune: Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare

The PC release date trailer for green-thumbed shooter Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare is utterly preposterous. Of course it is, you might be thinking, it's a video promoting a third-person shooter Plants Vs Zombies spin-off. The trailer doesn't show the actual game though, choosing instead to put the Origin logo front and centre. This is a video in which a zombie logs into Origin, has…

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),…

Plants Vs Zombies: GW Goes Battlefield In New Mode

I sure do love the fact that Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is suffering an arbitrary delay on PC. Makes savoring each promotional morsel all the sweeter, yes indeed. Who needs dumb anchors like a release date and payoff when you can praise the heavens for every little crumb that tumbles your way instead? Wait, no, the other thing: ugggggggggggggggggggghhhhh. Oh but Garden Warfare's Battlefield-inspired…

Lengthy PvZ: Garden Warfare Video Reveals DOLPHIN GUN

Everybody, stop whatever you're doing. Just stop. DOLLLLLLLLLLLPHIN GUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN. Go. Go watch it do both dolphin and gun things in the latest video of Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare. It makes high-pitched squealing sounds and blasts bubbles and everything. This is what Ecco The Dolphin would be like if Sega rebooted it as a gritty plant-centric zombie shooter. It is, in other words, the one thing…

Bjorn Is Back: Peggle 2 Footage

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.…

A World Of Hort: PVZ: Garden Warfare Undead Trailer

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…

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

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 -…
