Get ready to soil your plants! Plants vs Zombies coming to XBLA

Posted by | September 8, 2010

The ever-so-enjoyable Popcap Game’s Plants vs Zombies is coming to Xbox Live Arcade today for about 1200MS points. This extremely popular game happens to be a mainstay of down time for us voces as we come up with new and interesting ways to down those zombies.

For everyone else out there who have got Zen Gardens overgrown with various plantlife, and have been spending days collecting and uprooting marigolds for the fabled anti-zombie plants, this could be a fun addition. It will also add a social aspect to the game with XBLA achievements—and player housing? Needless to say, this still fits the PvZ paradigm well enough because we do have to defend our house after all.

Perhaps they’ll give us the ability to change the color of our tricycle?
