Plants vs. Zombies Review

Hi, my name is Nik and today i am reviewing:

Plants vs. Zombies is a game game developed by Pop Cap. So its packed full of content, compelling, waist of time, like most of Pop Cap's titles.  
The story is very basic. The zombies are coming to eat your brain, so you defend your house ... with the best weapon known to man - plants. 

The gameplay is very unique and very addicting. Basically your yard is a five lanes zombie highway, if any zombie gets to your house, you lose. In order to prevent that, you plant different kinds of plants - some that kill zombies from a distance, some that slow them down. Every plant has a sun cost and you get sun from sunflowers. 
The game gets very strategical in the final levels, due to the very large selection of plants and the many zombie types. 

If you don't like the champing missions, you can play one of the many mini games, like "Whack a zombie", "Wall-nut bowling" and my favorite "Portal Combat".
All of this sounds grate, but the game has one very big problem from PC. there are not hot keys from the pants, so you must use only the mouse and that gets very chaotic, very fast.  

So to top it all off Plants vs. Zombies is a great game, if you just want listen to some music, or get some rest, or generally its one of the best games to waist your time.

 I hope you liked my review of Plants vs. Zombies.
If you did please comment and share with your friends.
  Have a nice day.

PayPal Pains...

It was just a matter of time before it happened. I had a long conversation with my friends at deep blue apps (where I am illustrating a lot of the templates) and they had a whole avalanche of paypal disputes. Even my knocking on wood didn't help and today I had my first dispute on a BlockBuddies bundle - strange enough by a customer heavily shopping at deep blue apps as well (and disputing those purchases as well).

You don't get any information from paypal as to why the order has been disputed, so at first I thought ok... there is a kid shopping around with grandma's credit card. I was willing to just let it go and take the hit. After finding out there is a lot more purchases at deep blue apps I kind of changed my attitude.

It might be a sign of the times that everything is considered to be free and when you have a way to 'trick' someone out of his pay you should do so. The main flaw in this logic is the fact that things like this turn me off doing more art and tutorials. Why bother with something that makes me a little bit of pocket money (not talking about the fun I have doing it - but I would have that as well if I wouldn't publish them in this blog)? I might as well sit back and enjoy the summer, sun and pool.

Thanks to all who are supporting me and help me keep the faith in humanity and shame on those who think that it's ok to rip me off just because they can.

Sorry about this rant. I just had to let of some steam.
