Cultural Blips: Boob-filled Plants vs. Zombies Ad, Mega Man Timeline, Recession Mario, and More

You gotta hand it to the folks over at casual gaming publisher PopCap. They, like us last week, have noticed the insanely amusing Evony ads popping up around the Internet and managed to brilliantly poke fun at them. And when we say we gotta hand it to them, we mean with two hands. Preferably in a cupped position.

Cultural Blips:

Plants vs. Zombies ad heavy on melons. We didn’t want to play this game before, but we’d be total boobs to ignore zombie boobs. [Offworld]

Mega Man timeline keeps on ticking. A community member over at Destructoid made this timeline showcasing every Mega Man title released by year. Only one game for 2009? Lazy, Capcom. Really lazy. [Destructoid]


Recession Mario contemplates life-changing jump. Looks like times are tough in Mushroom Kingdom, too. You’d think Mario would have invested his coins better. Guess that’s what happens when you’re addicted to mushrooms. [TinyCartridge]
