This Week In Games
What are ye buyin'?
This afternoon’s great PopCap mystery may now be a little less mysterious: a Canadian industry source with ties to Electronic Arts has told Kotaku that a small team at EA’s Burnaby campus is working on a new entry in the Plants vs Zombies franchise.
Before I tell you the story of how I tricked and deceived my son, an innocent seven-year-old who trusts me with his life, his happiness and his dignity, let me first explain how much I hate Plants vs. Zombies. I cringe just typing the name. A clip of the music or a piece of the art is enough to make my gut shrink. I don’t blame the game, which is a perfectly great, smartphone-friendly tower defence title. I hate it because of my son.
Given what some games could smell like (blood, dirt, hellspawn hordes), this is far better than you’d think. Over on Etsy, a haven for geeky goods, seller Bubble and Geek has created a lovely line of fan-favourite home goods. These scented candles draw inspiration from Doctor Who, Star Wars, and, yes, video games.
The next time your neighbour tells you there’s a zombie on your lawn, you can finally reply, “Thanks! Isn’t it cute?” And ideally, your neighbour will have meant the cute little toy zombie from Plants vs. Zombies and will agree with you. (Either that, or you’ll be eaten by horrible, slavering zombies. As happens.)
The people behind Plants Vs. Zombies are adding a ton of new stuff to the iPad version of the game today. That is, it’s “new” if you haven’t played other versions of the game, that is. But, hey, these added modes, all of which have appeared in other, more expensive versions of the game, are mostly pretty good.
