Today in Techland: Plants vs. Zombies! Like everyone else on this zombie-lovin little planet, we’re crazy for this game. Lev gives you a plant by plant breakdown to aid your zombie killing skills.

Speaking of mad skills, we put ours down on paper and bickered over chose the hottest witches of all-time. Why? Because a bajillion years ago today, the first Salem witches were accused of the craft. We’ve been smitten ever since. Speaking of smitten, Evan talked to God of War lll developers about the upcoming release, while Steve pressed ‘paws’ on his favorite Fantastic Mr. Fox scene.

Happy March, fellow geeks, and just in case you missed it…

Here’s what else is going on nerd news around the Web:

Time travel, the ride. Cool. Perk up those ears, LOST fans. Disneyland’s island attraction that has held both Swiss Family Robinson and Pirates of the Caribbean themes may play host to a LOST-centered park attraction. Would you ride the Smoke Monster? We would.

Will you join the queue of freaks who camp outside of Best Buy for two days? You might need to if you want an iPad. Rumor has it that Apple will be in short supply of its latest product upon its initial release, citing production delays as the problem.

One with the people: The Hobbit director Guillermo Del Toro announced via that he is in talks with the studio to release The Hobbit in 3D.

Says Del Toro:

I wouldn’t read much on it just yet, but now, after all this time, after AVATAR doing the Box Office it did, we have had enquires from above about The Hobbit being in 3-D.

No impositions or heavy leaning. Just enquires. Just fulfilling my promise to let you all know if discussions ever started.



Your Daily Dinosaur:

Cameron’s raking them in: But can he hang on for Sunday’s Oscars? The Avatar crew walked away with six awards during yesterday’s Visual Effects Society awards, including the top honor of outstanding visual effects. Bravo, blue.

Suing for Superman: It’s got a nice ring, but a pretty nasty bite. Word is that DC has hired a lawyer (the same Disney used in their Winnie the Pooh case) to fend off the heirs of Jerry Siegel, who want to reclaim half of the rights to the Man of Steel.
