Plants vs Zombies was an incredibly popular indie game a few years ago. It actually make sense that the games would come to this point.

I'm still confused by that thing being called "Garden Warfare" when it's definitely based on Battlefield 3 and not on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2/3). The music and font are exactly the same, and it also uses the Frostbite engine.

Your remark made me remember a shirt my mother owns. It's a ball of string with two crossed knitting needles (Jolly Roger styler) and beneath that it reads "Y'arrrrn!"

A multiplayer shooty game with colors in it? It's been awhile since any of those came out. Will probably be great. Still not getting an xbone.

Some of the thumbnails on youtube I saw had a mockup with "Petal Of Honor" splayed across the picture in the same font as the 2011 Medal of Honor reboot had. I thought that was pretty smooth =p

In any case, it's nice to see a marketing department at the very least have free rein with being a tiny bit self-aware

Xbox exclusive makes it ... less fun.

However, there's a new P v.Z game on the horizon for us non-box-possessors.

Unless MS is publishing it, I'm not expecting many of these exclusives to stay exclusive.

Knowing EA, playable Zombies are probably add-on DLC.
