Angry Birds


Both the National Security Agency and the British Government Communications Headquarters has been spying on us through Angry Birds. They're able to get personal data from phone apps, and Angry Birds is one app that's bee...


Speaking at the Pocket Gamer Connects conference in London, Rovio chief marketing officer Peter Vesterbacka announced Angry Birds has achieved two billion downloads, reports Mobile Entertainment. "We started as a mobile games...


As the guy who does the editing for our Huge News of the Week program, I'm not really in the best position to be making comments about how stupid gaming-related video content can be. Anybody who has seen my work th...


Angry Birds Go! has soft launched over in New Zealand, and Pocket Gamer is giving a nice little break down of how the game plays. Their hands-on has discovered that the game is heavy on microtransactions, one of which include...


The plague that is Angry Birds is infecting everything. Even the cocaine-coated fusion of Pokemon and Bejeweled that is Puzzle & Dragons cannot resist the avian epidemic. The feverishly popular role-playing...


Hot off their Batman: Arkham Origins crossover, GungHo Online Entertainment has landed another collaboration that makes a little more sense for their addictive dungeon-crawling puzzler. Beginning November 18, till December 1,...


If M&Ms are allowed to have a kart racer, surely Rovio can try its hand at the genre free of guilt. Those angry birds are certainly iconic, and I suppose that's what matters most here. Angry Birds Go! is exactly what you...


I don't get the widespread outrage over so called "casual," simple-minded games. I can spend an afternoon plugging away at the most time-consuming and complex RPG imaginable, and if Angry Birds is thrown in every now and then, so be it. Yes, I'm reviewing an Angry Birds game. Deal with it.


Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine in the Star Wars films), wants you to "Join the Pork Side" in Angry Birds Star Wars 2. Set to drop on September 19 for iOS, Android, and Windows Phones, it'll be a $0.99 app -- on Android, th...


Activision will be at gamescom and are planning to wave their giant wads of money around as they will have the biggest ever demo-theater ever built in gamescom history for Destiny. It comes in at 72ft in length, 43ft wide, a...


Since I know everyone here asked for it, Angry Birds Star Wars is heading to pretty much every system under the sun on October 29, 2013. Specifically, it'll hit the Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita, Wii U, Wii and 3DS. It'll come with...


Rovio's tease from last week has been unveiled and it's pretty much what we expected: Angry Birds Star Wars II. Releasing September 19 for mobile devices, this sequel will span the three prequel movies and even incorporate p...


Rovio has just teased a new picture today that hints at what's coming next for the Angry Birds franchise -- specifically, Angry Birds Star Wars. Pretty much everyone will recognize this as the iconic poster for Star Wars: A P...


I'm pretty sure you've heard of Angry Birds by now. It's a game where you fling vengeful birds across a screen so you can murder other animals, who cooked up and ate the birds' young. It's a pretty sick game but people seem ...


It's a monumental weekend for Apple, which is days (hours? minutes?) away from 50 billion downloads. It's not hard to think back to a time when the App store seemed insignificant, but looking at Apple's published lists of the...


Who says you have to make AAA console games to make money? While the big guys are shutting down left and right, Rovio flings off their financial results for 2012 showing that they're growing at an amazing rate. The Espoo, Fin...


Rovio has expanded their Angry Birds empire today, conquering the last foreseeable platform left with Angry Birds Space: Steam. It's weird to think about, but, yes, this is the very first time an Angry Birds title h...


I've listened to plenty of videogame musical covers in the seven years I've worked at Destructoid. Yet, this is the first time I've heard of a musical cover montage with a Middle-Eastern twist to them. There's even some games covered here I'd never expect, like Alley Cat. [Via The Awesomer]


When I first heard that Electronic Arts was suing Zynga over The Ville, a rather blatant ripoff of EA’s The Sims Social, I was pretty excited to see the outcome. After all, there’s nothing worse than a company whose only business model is to steal the works of small game developers, and given some of The Ville's obvious lifts, it seemed as though EA had a very solid case.


Although the Angry Birds Trilogy had a 360, PS3, and 3DS release last year, it looks like the Activision/Rovio/Nintendo partnership is seeing more action in 2013, as the trilogy is now set for Wii and Wii U release. Activisio...


Another week of new releases is upon us! I hope you're not broke. After many months of furious debates, arguments, and colorful name calling, we can finally shut the hell up and just play (or not play) DmC: Devil May Cry.&nb...


It's wild to think how successful Rovio has been in adapting Angry Birds to so many different areas -- in fact, a full-fledged animated movie seems relatively tame by comparison. The company has given another update on the An...


WUT. No, seriously. WUT. The fact that there is Angry Birds soda isn't what shocks me. You can buy novelty Mega Man and Pac-Man energy drinks. I sampled some very sugary Mario-themed beverages back in the day. Hell, remember ...


In retrospect, Rovio Entertainment collaborating with Lucasfilm seems spot on. Not so much thematically, but in terms of how both Star Wars and Angry Birds have made obscene amounts of money through merchandising. Now, t...


We weren't live today, but that's okay. We still love you. To prove it, here's some news about Sim City, Retro City Rampage, Angry Birds, and of course... The Unfinished Swan. So, different types of cities, and different types of birds. VIDEO GAMES.


I know, I know -- but it's not any more ridiculous than Green Day partnering with Angry Birds. An official tweet from @AngryBirds directed users to a new Tumblr page, which has an animated version of the above teaser. (Try no...


Bad Piggies popped on to the App Store last week and it didn't take long to become Rovio's most successful game launch to date. It took less than three hours, according to the publisher, to hit the top of the App Store's...


This week marks the release of Angry Birds Trilogy on 3DS, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, a $39.99 ($29.99 for 3DS) compilation that includes Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Rio. There's the launch trailer, w...


Whilst the Angry Birds franchise strives to become perhaps the most ubiquitous Scandinavian thing ever, displacing IKEA and ABBA, it seems like we often forget there's a series of videogames at the heart of it all. The n...


Rovio has announced an actual sequel -- not a spin-off -- to its ludicrously popular Angry Birds series. Bad Piggies reverses the roles and puts players on the side of the green pigs that have served as cannon fodder across ...


Because Angry Birds has to have it's hand in everything, or maybe because everyone wants to be part of this ever-expanding franchise, Green Day is now teaming up with Rovio to add band themed levels to the hit game. Thes...


So I like Angry Birds. Yeah, I said it haters. It's a fun physics based puzzle game, and a great time waster when I'm on the go. I can never look at the mobile game the same again though thanks to what I played of Angry Birds...


Happy Friday, wonderbuns! Max and I totally hosted a live Destructoid Show today but forgot to post about it here beforehand and now EVERYTHING SUCKS. You'll watch the recorded episode though, right? To make me feel better? ...


It looks like the newest member of the Angry Birds family is "Pink" -- a cute looking character that enjoys blowing bubbles, and happens to share the other birds' disdain for pig-kind everywhere.It's unclear what Pink's exac...


Check out this physical controller designed by students at Copenhagen Institute of Interactive Design for use with Angry Birds. As you can see, it tilts, pulls, fires and totally belongs in my house. Setting aside for the mo...


In Rovio's quest to get Angry Birds on every single platform currently active in the market, the bird launching simulator will be headed to the twenty people out there who were able to afford a Samsung Smart TV (Samsung 2012 ...


As spotted by The Escapist, a promo reel shown off at the Activision E3 booth included a small hint at the publisher's involvement with Angry Birds. While nothing has been announced formally, a nearby company rep did offer a ...


According to Rovio's own blog, Angry Birds Space has just hit 50 million downloads in a little over a month. They also state that the game broke all of their previous sales records (which are probably mobile wide, and set by ...


Love it or hate it, Angry Birds is still a massive deal, as evidenced by the ludicrous amount of merchandise surrounding it. While it's become cool to despise, legendary videogame developer Shigeru Miyamoto has taken its side...


Rovio, of Angry Birds fame, has now acquired the game studio arm of the Futuremark. The latter company, mostly known for 3DMark, PCMark, and Peacekeeper, has been doing pretty well for themselves in the gamespace after t...
