PopCap, ur doin it rong  
Well first of all, if you haven't seen it already, this Plants vs. Zombies music video is pretty cute :) Although i could swear the song reminds me of something i've heard before, but i can't think what.

But anyways, it convinced me to try out the demo, which was fun, but i was reluctant to spend $20 on it. Then i happened to reread the VGCats post about it and noticed that it claimed the game was just $10. I double checked the demo, it said $20. I checked the PopCap website, it said $20. Then i checked Steam, and they have it for $10. They also have all the other PopCap games for $10 each, while on the PopCap website they mostly seem to vary from $15 to $20. What kind of company charges more when you buy it from them directly then when you get it from a major retailer? (And it's the downloadable version in both cases, so there's no difference in what you get as far as i can tell.)

Now that i know i can get it for "half off" i'm strongly tempted to pick a copy up.

Darch was playing it all evening and says it's fun.

Yeah, i'd already spent over an hour with the demo, and just spent another hour or two more with the full version :)

Damn it, you would have to post this less than 24 hours after I bought it directly from PopCap. :P

It's actually a really fun game, you should try it - especially for $10.

See PopCap! That's no way to engender a positive relationship with your customer base! :)
