"The Passing" Also Gives A Shout-Out To Plants Vs. Zombies

We knew that Left 4 Dead 2's new expansion, "The Passing," paid a graffiti tribute to Dead Rising's Frank West. It looks like the game's creators admire Plants vs. Zombies as well.

Reader Stephen H. sent in this grab - we're trying to get a bigger image - but evidently Crazy Dave is the guy to see if you need an M60. Crazy Dave, of course, is your neighbour (and the armorer/store owner) in PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies.

This too is in the room with a pool table on the second level of "The Passing." Just scan the wall, you'll hit it and many other zombie genre in-jokes.


    I call it the 'fanservice' room.

    There's Plants vs Zombies, Dead Rising, American Dad (one mentions both a Francine and a Rodger) and 28 Days Later (The end is extremely F***ing Nigh).

    It sort of sums up what the Passing was marketed as: a fanservice crossover. Of course, The Passing is actually fun for other reasons entirely, but still.
