Angry Birds

  1. 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!

    Oh, and be sure to report back to us about any GoT memorabilia she might be trying to smuggle out of the con.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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)

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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)

  10. 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.
