Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare dumbs down a smart series (review) – VentureBeat

Posted: Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Check out our Reviews Vault for past game reviews.  The original Plants vs. Zombies introduced players to the concept of vegetarian zombies, who dined on a salad course before the brains. They must have eaten their fill, because in the new spin-off Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, they have no appetite at all. This isn’t the only major change in Garden Warfare, available today for Xbox 360 and Xbox One…

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (Xbox One) – PC Magazine

Posted: Tuesday, February 25, 2014

I’m suffering from shooter fatigue. I abandoned the genre once the video-game industry became oversaturated with drab, pseudo-realistic military skirmishes that I could only differentiate by the name on the game’s packaging. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon‘s ’80s-tastic neon and synth love letter to classic action movies brought me back to the category in 2013 after a several-year hiatus, but I thought that would be the extent of my…

Plants, not pills, might be the key to lowering your blood pressure – Quartz

Posted: Tuesday, February 25, 2014

“Let me be clear about this. A low carbohydrate diet is quackery,” Dr. Neal Barnard told me over the phone. “It is popular, bad science, it’s a mistake, it’s a fad. At some point we have to stand back and look at evidence.” Note to self: Don’t ask Dr. Neal Barnard about limiting your carb intake. “You look at the people across the world who are the thinnest, the healthiest, and…

As Lancaster Countians tire of the cold, a student club is finding a cure for the winter doldrums by thinking forward and preparing for spring. The after-school garden club at E.R.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare review: turf war – Polygon

Posted: Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is an idea that on paper at least swings wildly between stupid and obvious. On the one hand, Plants vs. Zombies as a series has been a charming casual success, full of bright, fun character design and easy-to-grasp mechanics — none of which seems all that suited for a shooter powered by the same tech behind the Battlefield series. But Plants vs Zombies…
