Back in May 2009 PopCap Games released Plants vs. Zombies for the PC and Mac. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect, sure the name was catchy and the screenshots were interesting but you just never know what to expect from a game until you sit down and play it. Right from the beginning I was hooked. The game had a fantastic art style, great game mechanics and was extremely addictive. I think anyone will agree that with that kind of formula on your hands, you’re going to have yourself one hell of a successful game, well that and the fact that everyone seems to love anything with Zombies. I still remember playing the game at work, even though I wasn’t supposed too. As soon as I told one of my coworker about it, it was all over. All we did was talk about the game, while we were supposed to be helping people with computer issues, we just kept shouting back and forth at each other that we just hit a new level or that we just got a new plant or object in our fight against the zany zombie horde. It got so bad that one of our coworkers just didn’t want to listen to us anymore.
Those that are Ninja Gaiden fans will be happy to know that a new installment in the franchise is coming.

With Yosuke Hayashi, the Leader of Team NINJA at the helm, this next iteration of the is set to draw in a new fan base, yet keep all of the components in tack which drew in so many of the hardcore fans so long ago. More information will be released at E3 2011.
