More Plants vs Zombies action coming in 2013

While it’s not surprising that the smash-hit Plants vs Zombies is getting a sequel, I do find it surprising that they’ve taken this long to get around to it.

Anyway, details are pretty sparse and the only real piece of info is that it will come out in Spring 2013.

In the meantime, check out this hilarious video by The Pixel Kingdom that mashes Pokemon with Plants vs Zombies.

Weirdest Pokemon Cosplay ever!

Pokemon cosplay usually involves plushies and other cute costumes.  But not this one!

In this series of photos, you’ve got a hot female version of Ash, and a man-slave version of Pikachu. Yeah, I know… WTF, right?

Well, whatever fuels your engines!

Top 5 Retro Videogame Pets

I love pets. Hell, the whole world loves pets. Even gamers, one of the angriest group of people in society, love pets, as evident by the sheer amount of pets that exist in games today. Though these days, most of the gaming pets you’ll find are the little critters that follow you around in MMOs, or the cute little animals in Facebook games.

However, if they were to pop out of your computer screen and come to life, they wouldn’t be the most functional pets in the world, would they? They’d be like, extra-cute cats or something.

But once upon a time, videogame pets were awesome and really did add to gameplay functionality. If these pets existed in reality, they’d be way more popular than chinchillas and chihuahuas.

Here’s a list of the Top 5 Pets I’d like to have in real life:

#5 – Talking Pet (Star Control)

The Dnyarri Talking Pet from Star Control

In Star Control, the Dnyarri were a race of psychic frog-aliens who were used as interpreters by the Ur-Quan. By communicating via telepathy, it completely breaks free of any language barriers, and because the Talking Pets have been genetically spliced to be completely subservient and unintelligent, they’re not going to try their mind tricks on you.

Speaking of mind tricks, with a pet like this I could totally figure out what my wife wants all the time, cutting through all the female mind games! No more trying to guess what special day this is or where she really wants to go for dinner!

#4 – Snott (Earthworm Jim 2)

Glide me down, Snotty!

Earthworm Jim is known as one of the most bizarre games out there, and Snott is just one of the many aspects of this crazy game. Snott is a living mucus that lives in Jim’s backpack, and aside from being gross and sticky, it helps Jim get around. It extends and sticks to gooey ceilings to swing him around, and it can also expand into a parachute to slow his falls.

It’s basically an all-purpose gooey thing, and we can always use one of those! It’s like Blu-tac, but more awesome.

Pokemon Avatar

After watching Avatar with Dexian, the first thing that we discussed was not the 3D technology or the performance capture, but about Pokemon’s influence on the film.

Avatar might be hyper-realistic with super-enhanced CG and all that, but there was a definite moment in the film where I expected Sam Worthington to yell out “Pikachu, I choose you!”
