  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!

    D'awww...look at those big eyes.

    Looking for a fun way to kick off your Comic-Con experience this year? The Angry Birds Stella "Pop Up Experience" booth opens today at the Petco Park parking lot (no badge required!) at 9 a.m. and will be offering a variety of giveaways and exclusives throughout SDCC to celebrate their upcoming cartoon Stella--and judging from preview art for the ToonsTV show, this should be one cute booth.

  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Happy Birthday, Freddie Mercury, Rovio Has Turned You Into An Angry Bird! This Feels Weird. [VIDEO]

    what is this I don't even

    It wasn't too long ago we saw a hologram version of the late Queen singer Freddie Mercury perform at the London Olympics. That in and of itself rubbed me the wrong way but now Rovio, creators of Angry Birds, have turned the singer into one of their animated fowls. Yeah. This is strange. Take a look and see what you think. There is at least one good thing about it - it's for a good cause. According to THR, "The video raises awareness for the special Freddie For A Day fundraising evening hosted by Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor at which, for the second year, friends and stars will gather at the Savoy in Freddie’s honor, to remember him and raise funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust - Fighting Aids Worldwide."
