The article just says part of the game mechanics is dead, I am going to stay hopeful because I am having so much fun.

The leaked footage itself looked pretty damn awesome, from what I got from the article the new developers have everything but the seamless transition from ground to air to space but that the new company will just use cut scenes instead.

Everyone should try Peggle and Ikaruga is a great, challenging shooter with a neat polarity changing mechanic.

Peggle:





Popcop also released a free, standalone, WOW themed version of Peggle. More info on the free games thread.

I've recently been sucked in to both Sims 3 and Plants vs Zombies. PvZ is a ton of fun, but I haven't played a PopCap game that I've disliked yet.

Sims 3 is good. A lot like Sims 1 with better graphics and more options. I guess a lot of Sims 2 fans didn't like it, but I dig it.

PopCap don't really get enough credit, they make great games!

Prepare for endless Sims 3 expansion packs.

Yeah, I am... I was a diehard (sucker?) who bought all the expansions for the first Sims game, and I'd expect no less from EA this time around. I also noticed that they've already rolled out an online store where you can purchase individual items. Comes with the territory, I guess.
