This music video for PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies has a Korean-pop girl band sound to it, but the lyrics are actually pretty funny; the undead might just have a shot at the music business.

We still don’t know what the acronym stands for, but Star Trek: DAC at least has several new tantalizing gameplay screens for us to chew on; do we detect the faint aroma of Netrek?

Trailer: Explodemon!

Halo: All I Play-Oh

Halo: All I Play-Oh

True to its name, Two Rooms is a puzzle game where you’ll need to move two entirely separated pieces to reach a common goal; you’ll need to use sliding walls, crates and buttons.
