Launching on Steam, Switch, and Xbox One on Friday the 13th (and PS4 later), Roundguard is basically Peggle turned into a dungeon-crawling role-playing game. A ball-bouncing roguelike, if you will. In other words, it’s my jam.

Peggle 2, PopCap's previously Microsoft-exclusive black hole time vortex of sheer addiction, is finally coming to PlayStation 4.
Rob and Shireen are bigtime Peggle fans. Big enough that Rob went to PopCap and asked if they'd help him pop the question. Hell yes they would! Game studios love this kind of thing. But just in case Rob and Shireen weren't like, an actual thing, Peggle 2 made sure to leave a way out. A hella awkward way out.
Peggle is a puzzle game that involves clearing coloured pegs from a board by shooting balls from the top of the screen, but that's not what the game is about. It's about getting to the explosively colourful celebration at the end of each level, and Peggle 2's celebrations are the most satisfying yet.
Peggle 2 is coming Dec. 9 to the Xbox One via Xbox Live. This comes from PopCap, in a preview of the game in VentureBeat yesterday. Peggle 2 will have 120 levels and run $US11.99.
I had a bit of cognitive whiplash when I saw Peggle 2 this afternoon. Its predecessor is a game that's everywhere. Your mum or even grandmother probably plays it, or something heavily inspired by it. The browser version of the first Peggle is what helped its viral spread but there I was playing it on an Xbox One development unit.
Revealed this morning as an Xbox One timed exclusive, Peggle 2 got a little more stage time at EA's Gamescom presser than it did at E3. It paraded its balls and pegs like it was in some sort of first-ever gameplay trailer.
