A piece of gaming news E3 overshadowed, PVZ2, and some commentary!

nerdnationminilogoPlants Vs. Zombies is, in my opinion, the best original game ever released for IOS. Angry Birds may get a lot of level, but it doesn’t have the depth, the strategy, or… the brains that PVZ does.  Popcap is back with a real sequel. Sure we know about the xbox exclusive shooter Garden warfare, and even the new facebook game, but the true sequel was announced just before E3

Beyond that there are some clues that  youtuber xXadanfimeXx has pulled from the trailer.

“Roses are Red

Snow peas are blue

Zombies are Green

and They are coming for you!”

(From the video above)

Everyone can get excited about super expensive new consoles, me, I’m looking forwarding to this, and ducktales to hold me over.

Game of Thrones has been remade in Minecraft

creeperrburstinA Mine Craft user has beautifully recreated  Westeros, the world first popularized by the Song of Ice and Fire novels, and now made mainstream through the hit adaption, Game of Thrones.  I have no where near this level of skill but it’s wonderful to admire. for more info on their map head to: http://westeroscraft.com/

To discuss mine craft hit up our forums HERE and while there browse around there are threads for the Song of Ice and fire books (which the game of thrones show is based on) and many others.


Lego Zelda has another shot at life!

The dream could be reality

The dream could be reality

Zelda is awesome. there is no point in denying. I’ve ran into people who didn’t like a certain zelda game, but none who love video games of any type, and don’t also love Zelda. For many of us it was our first introduction into Fantasy in gaming, and it’s stuck with us.

lego has a site called Lego Cuusoo and the idea of this site is that fans can submit ideas for new sets, they can be voted on, and then if they get enough votes they will be reviewed by staff and if possible made.

Zelda is heavily desired, and has made it to the review stage before. While it would take a licensing agreement with Nintendo to happen, the reason why it was declined last time was too many unique parts being required to make the set. (IGN has some info on the history of trying to get Zelda in lego form here.)

Cuusoo user Ragaru has recently achieved enough votes to head to the review process again, using less parts. Check out his work here. He doesn’t need your votes anymore, but you can drool. I also can’t imagine more hits on the page would be a bad thing!

Ragaru isn’t the only one trying to make Zelda Lego a reality. Click Here to check out other users propasals and if you like them, sign up and give them a vote (i did!)

The lines between toys and video games are blurring with items like Skylanders being hugely successful. I think this would be a great way to get kids who love legos into Zelda and her faithful hero Link, as well as get video gaming kids into a creative toy like lego.

Lego Castlevania

I almost want to see him die, so i can see him break up into pieces

Sadly there is no lego tie in with Castlevania on the horizon but over at the Retro Gaming Blog there is an excellent image of a physical lego set up. The stage style would be great for recreating  plenty of classic video game looks.
