Plants vs. Zombies 2 coming spring 2013 ➝

I don’t play video games too often anymore but I’ve spent a lot of time playing the original Plants vs. Zombies. It’s disappointing to hear that I’ll have to wait until next year to get my hands on the sequel but I’m sure I won’t forget how fun it was to line up Threepeaters and protect my home from the zombie hoard.

The End of iPod Click Wheel Games ➝

In a report on the release of “Song Summoner: The Unsung Heroes – Encore,” Joystiq casually mentioned that Apple had dropped support for iPod click wheel games.

Rather than being a simple touchscreen-enabled port of the original click wheel game, the iPhone Song Summoner contains both Song Summoner and Song Summoner 2, which was never released due to Apple ending support for click wheel games.

Previously released iPod click wheel games are still available in the iTunes Store but the end of support should come as no surprise. It’s clear that moving forward, Apple will be focusing on games for the iPhone and iPod touch.
