Plants vs. Zombies Killed My Mouse!


I have had the damnedest time with PC mice lately, and the click-happy brilliance of PopCap’s new tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies has only made things worse. About a month or so ago, my trusty Razer Copperhead gaming mouse gave up the ghost. Not sure what happened, but I was just browsing around online and the damn thing died on me.

And now my backup Logitech laser mouse has also died, and it’s all Plants vs. Zombies‘ fault!

Apparently I clicked after one too many sun orbs, as while frantically gathering the valuable resource needed for building up my floral defenses the left mouse button went kaput. I didn’t realize what happened at first, but after cursing up a storm for a few minutes wondering why I couldn’t click on anything I eventually figured it out.

Now I’m down to my third mouse — a crummy Dell ball mouse (I haven’t used one of these in years, man they suck!) that came with the last PC I bought — until I can pick up a new one, preferably another Copperhead as I really loved that mouse.

Plants vs. Zombies is a wonderfully fun and addictive game, but be warned, it requires A LOT of clicking and may kill your mouse!
