Â Iâ€™m sure most of you Ego-gents will remember Plants Vs Zombies. This toontastic tower defense title was freaking huge a few years back, the Pokemon Go of its time (well...), and bridged that casual/hardcore gap like so few games can. It saw you protecting your home (and sweet, sweet brains, natch) from the undead by placing angry-ass plants on your lawn. Â
Murderous anthropomorphic pea plants sold this one to me at first sight, and Iâ€™d go on to buy the damn game on about four different systems. So itâ€™s fair to say Iâ€™d be on board with anything Plants Vs Zombies related.
More recently, the series gave the FPS genre a go with Garden Warfare. This kinda-competitive-yet-piss-takey shooter had all the genre trappings youâ€™d want, with character customization and classes and such, but took itself much less seriously than the Call of Dutys of the world. I loved Gotham City Impostors, I loved the original Garden Warfare, and the current gen sequel is just as awesome in my book.
Not only for cactus snipers and zombie marine biologists with dolphin guns, but also for the way PopCapâ€™s handling it. As with the original, theyâ€™re pumping out a regular stream of free updates, and damn big ones at that. If you havenâ€™t checked in for a while, itâ€™s worth getting back into it, as the Trials of Gnomus DLC arrived yesterday.
Hereâ€™s whatâ€™s included, fresh from the official site:
That sounds pretty damn extensive to me. And it looks as ridiculous as ever, too:
