The opening sequence of last night's True Blood showed one of vampire Bill's security team members playing Plants vs. Zombies on the iPad. Is this a clue to what's next on the HBO show? I mean, we already have witches, fairies, vampires, shape-shifters, werewolves, and werepanthers. What's a little zombie?
Available now, Plants vs. Zombies DS ($20) will bring you all the planting and zombie knockouts you love, plus new achievements and four new minigames — including Air Raid, Home Run Derby, Heat Wave, and BOMB All Together — to keep you occupied. Plus, there'll even be a DSiWare version for you to download, which will include the adventure mode, and a collection of new minigames to conquer. Are you excited, or have you totally moved on to obsessing over Angry Birds?

If you're a big fan of Plants vs. Zombies like I am, then you're going to love these handmade Plants vs. Zombies lawn ornaments. A must-have game on your iPad (and iPhone, and computer for that matter), one superfan actually made this pottery collection as a homage to her favorite game. I'd have to give her a round of applause and ask — when are they going on sale!? It's enough to get me into gardening.

I don't know what drew me to Plants vs. Zombies in the first place, but now, battling my way through level after level of plant eating zombies is my idea of fun. What's so special about the game you ask? Well, it's a simple premise: defend your house from zombies with the help of killer plants which stun, chomp, and act as obstacles to keep the undead away. But sometimes, it's the simple things that are the most addictive.
In adventure mode, there's 50 levels of zombie action that has your plants working overtime while the army of zombies (including pole vaulters and a bobsled team) gets faster and smarter. Earn up to 49 types of plants to protect your home (like Sunflowers, Peashooters, Cherry Bombs, and Potato Mines) and play in five different game modes to combat game burnout.
