Angry Birds

  1. Angry Birds Movie Casts All The Funny People, One Lannister

    Everything is awesome angry!

    I would watch the live-action Tetris movie if it landed a cast like this. Heck, I would even watch Ouija.

  2. I Can’t Wait For My Nieces To Play Angry Birds Stella. Thanks, Strong Female Characters!

    I spent some time at the Stella Pop Up Experience in Petco Park at San Diego Comic-Con last week and boy are my arms tired! Wait...that's not right. More like, girls, am I excited!

  4. Angry Birds Creator Rovio Announces Over 50% Drop in Profits

    Maybe they should hurl some angry birds at some banks.

    Angry Birds was first released in 2009, and since then it's become ubiquitous. Even if you've never picked up a smartphone in your life, you've seen those stupid birds on T-shirts and lunchboxes all over the place. It will probably give you more than a little schadenfreude to know, then, that Rovio's profits have sharply declined in the last year.

  5. The Next Angry Bird Game Will Be an RPG, We Have Mixed Feelings

    Guess you can call us "frustrated but optimistic birds."

    I'll admit that I'm not the hugest fan of Angry Birds: I just don't see the appeal, particularly with regard to the tie-in products for consumers (seriously, imagine if Flappy Bird was producing kids' lunch boxes -- it'd be ridiculous). But the new Angry Birds Epic might be enough to change my mind.

  6. Artist Makes Your Childhood Icons Twisted and Nightmare-Inducing

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    Or not, in some cases. We know from Sylvain Sarrailh's previous set of illustrations that, while he's good at reimagining childhood favorites in such a way as to make them completely terrifying (Ariel), a lot of his illustrations are just... pretty damned awesome, full-stop. To wit: His take on The Legend of Zelda. I don't want to spoil it for you, but it's the first one behind the cut, and you definitely want to see it. (via: Kotaku)

  7. Angry Birds Decides it Wants Some of My Little Pony‘s Cake

    Consider the Following

    Rovio, parent company of Angry Birds, the video game-and-everything-else franchise featuring suicidal birds destroying the homes of kidnapper pigs (sometimes in space, as Star Wars characters), has rolled out its newest branch of the feathered family, Stella. Featuring a "feisty" lady lead and her "passionate pals," could this be the game maker taking a step back from "boy toy market" oriented fare? There's isn't too much we know about Angry Birds Stella yet, but what it says to me so far is "we want to market to girls without actually saying 'girls'," and that's pretty interesting.

  8. Relax, Friends: Angry Birds Didn’t Tell The NSA How Much Time You Spend Playing It

    At least, that's what they want you to think.

    After a recently released report that suggested the NSA collected user information from apps "like" Angry Birds, Rovio Entertainment has released a press release saying that they definitely didn't collude with the NSA to provide that information. It was probably those darn pigs, is what it was.

  9. Check out Critical Hit, A New VG Cover Band Founded By World of Warcraft’s Composer [Video]

    They've somehow managed to make us enjoy Angry Birds!

    Jason Hayes really likes video game music -- as the in-house composer for Blizzard Entertainment, it's sort of his thing. But apparently writing for World of Warcraft, Diablo 2, and Starcraft wasn't fulfilling enough, because now he's got a new project where he brings professional musicians together to perform famous video game songs.

  10. Things We Saw Today: Game Of Thrones’ Dragon Beer

    Things We Saw Today

    You knew it was coming. Brewery Ommegang and HBO sent out a press release for their third Game of Thrones beer, this one inspired by House Targaryen. It's called Fire and Blood Red Ale and there will be three labels - one for Drogon, one for Rhaegal, and one for Viserion. I'm giddy. Giddy, I tell you!  (image via MyDesert.com)

  11. The Angry Birds Star Wars Sequel You Never Wanted is Coming

    If there is a God, then surely He has abandoned us.

    I am one of those people who falls squarely into the "irrational yet intense and passionate hatred for Angry Birds" camp. There's just something about how it's being marketed -- I see more Angry Birds Star Wars merchandise in store now than I see actual Star Wars merchandise, and that upsets me on a visceral level I can't quite understand or verbalize. So with the news that Angry Birds Star Wars II has both a trailer and a launch date looming for the new game, as well as a line of interactive Skylanders-knockoff toys, you can imagine the day I'm having. To borrow a phrase that I'm sure none of the four-year-olds Rovio and Hasbro are currently marketing these toys towards will get, I've got a bad feeling about this.

  12. Doing Some Last Minute Egg Decorating? Why Not Make Angry Bird Eggs?

    It's already late Easter morning here on the east coast, but if you've been putting off decorating eggs and find yourself in need of some inspiration, why not give this a try: Kitchen Overlord's Chris-Rachael Oseland has instructions on how your eggs can look like the Angry Birds. She's also got an Angry Birds cocktail garnish for helping get through awkward family dinner.

  13. NASA Lures Kids to Florida, Space Education With Angry Birds Exhibit

    We need to get kids interested in space, obviously. We need many of them to grow up and become astronauts, or man the ground controls at NASA, or at least help counter future space funding cuts, but how, exactly, can we get kids to like space? Well, since we can't send dinosaurs into space, NASA is doing the next best thing: They've created an Angry Birds space exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center! Now kids have no choice but to go there and collaterally learn about the universe.

  14. To Nobody’s Surprise, Kids Play Angry Birds More Than Educational Games

    Any day now, I will become a parent. To prepare, I've been looking at a lot of apps that claim to be educational and fun for children, but what I already know from being an uncle is that kids don't care about those educational apps. They just want to play Angry Birds. The good news -- depending on your definition of that, I guess -- is that my experiences with my nephews has just been borne out by science. A new study shows that kids log more time play Rovio's Angry Birds games than any educational games, but I don't think that's a bad thing. Angry Birds is a great primer for learning physics.

  16. Every Gesture Used to Beat Angry Birds Visualized on Paper

    Of all the games that have come and gone on smartphones, Angry Birds continues to be the front-runner for the platform's most successful franchise. That's painfully obvious, considering there's even a Star Wars version out there. In general, casual gaming has never been as hot as it is right now, and artist Evan Roth knows it. As a way of commenting on the new ways in which we interact with our slew of gadgets, Roth's created an art installation that visualizes the gestures used to beat every level of Angry Birds out of ink and paper.

  18. Angry Birds Star Wars is Rovio’s “Best Angry Birds” Yet

    Because either franchise hasn't been milked enough, starting November 8, Angry Birds Star Wars will be released to the masses. Sure, the above picture is actually amusing, but do we need another Angry Birds so soon after the last few? According to Rovio's Mighty Eagle, Peter Vesterbacka, this version of Angry Birds is the "best Angry Birds [they've] ever done." You know, until two weeks from now when the next one is announced.

  20. Gameplay Mechanics for Bad Piggies, Rovio’s Angry Birds Follow-Up, Revealed

    For quite a while, there were rumors that Rovio would follow up their insanely successful Angry Birds franchise with another game from the perspective of the villainous pigs. It's been official for a bit now, but with Bad Piggies, players won't help suicidal birds end their own lives in order to save their young, but will build contraptions to help pigs kidnap the avian young.
