When the original Plants vs Zombies came out close to eight years ago, I got a little obsessed with it. Some former developers of that game have made a new game called Octogeddon, in which you play as a giant octopus.
It’s easy to believe that video game publishers like Electronic Arts are full of cartoon villains, which is why people were so quick to share a recent rumor about the publisher firing Plants vs. Zombies’ creator for refusing to make the sequel pay-to-win. The truth, as always, is far more complicated than that.

Popcap is taking Plants Vs. Zombies back to its roots with a new mobile strategy game, Plants. Vs. Zombies Heroes: The Lawn of a New Battle, only this time it’s turn-based and plays a lot like Hearthstone. Watch me play.

The console beta for Popcap’s Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is live this weekend, giving players a tiny taste of the new maps and modes in next month’s shooter sequel. My favorite part so far? The free-roaming playground that’s replaced the first game’s menus.
Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 will be out on February 23. Popcap’s sequel to its plant-and-zombie-based third-person shooter, which is coming to current-gen consoles and PC, will feature a total of 8 new classes, along with a single-player mode and multiple new multiplayer modes.

Oh, if only this was an actual LEGO set. Well, actually, it can be if enough people vote for it, thanks to LEGO's Ideas program. Which I'm guessing people will do, because even as a pitch it looks as good as you'd expect from the finished product.
