Remember when PopCap was pumping out a ton of hits that weren’t freemium affairs or microtransactioned to death? It’s hard to believe that was so long ago.
It was 2011 when EA took over, and their entire business model changed. Peggle 2 was one of the last games that maintained the same magic as their old releases, and now you can enjoy it on Xbox Game Pass via the cloud edition of the service.
I still think of Peggle all the time. My wife and I played the first one endlessly, side-by-side with multiple copies, having a blast. Somehow, someway, I hope PopCap can bounce back from the cold grasp of EA and start having fun again.
Other notable games hitting Xbox Game Pass this week include Plant vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville (cloud), Maneater (all platforms), and Fuzion Frenzy (cloud). You can find the full list below!
