Alive

Standard

Wow, haven’t written something new in almost a month. Curse you writers block!

Life has been a bit busy lately. Gaming wise I have found myself dabbling in a few games:

  • World of Warcraft – I think I am going to call it quits for a month or two. I am stuck at level 55 and can’t seem to muster the strength to continue onward towards level 80. The time commitment alone is daunting and not something I am willing to undertake at the moment. Rest in peace World of Warcraft…for now?
  • Pokémon Platinum – Burned out on Dragon Quest IV, I decided to engage in something a bit more mindless. 🙂
  • Plants Vs. Zombies (iPod) – Good game!
  • Lord of the Rings Online – Abandoning the personal Titanic that is World of Warcraft, I have started a new character (Aubrik the warden) on the Landroval server. Anyone know of a good guild?

I watched the Sons of Numenor slowly canter through Bree (as a group) and then assemble in The Prancing Pony. I swear I'm not a spy...just a nosey hobbit!

New content inbound. Look for a journal chronicling my adventures in Middle Earth.

Plants vs. Zombies Released

Standard

PopCap Game’s Plants vs. Zombies (link will open iTunes) was unleashed upon the iPhone/ iPod touch today. Priced at $2.99, this app is sure to change your outlook on the power of sunflowers.

The 2009 game of the year is now on iPhone and iPod touch!

Get ready to soil your plants in this Adventure mode version of the hit PopCap game! A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home, and your only defense is an arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants. Use peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more to slow down, confuse, weaken and mulchify 26 types of zombies before they can reach your front door.

Each zombie has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all. But be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds… as you battle the fun-dead, obstacles like a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge. And no matter where you take this iPhone version of the hit game, the fun never dies!
