Some classic game songs with a Middle-Eastern twist

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]

Five most notorious videogame ripoffs of all-time photo
Five most notorious videogame ripoffs of all-time
by Vito Gesualdi

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.

Angry Birds Trilogy is coming to the Wii and Wii U

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...

New releases: Batten down the hatches, DmC is upon us

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...

Despicable Me producer attached to Angry Birds movie

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...

Angry Birds soda outsells Coke and Pepsi in Finland

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 ...

Angry Birds Star Wars sounds like what you would expect

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...

The DTOID Show: SimCity, Retro City Rampage & Angry Birds

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.

The 'next big thing' for Angry Birds involves Star Wars

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...

Angry Birds spin-off Bad Piggies breaks record for Rovio

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...

Angry Birds spin-off Bad Piggies launches next week

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...

Angry Birds getting a real sequel in Bad Piggies

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 ...

Green Day is jumping on the Angry Birds bandwagon

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...

gamescom: Angry Birds Trilogy looks gorgeous on consoles
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

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 Trilogy on consoles.

First of all, this isn't a downloadable title. It's a full retail product for the the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $39.99, and $29.99 for the 3DS. You get Angry Birds classic, Seasons, Rio, plus 19 exclusive levels for a total of around 700 puzzles, clocking in at around 150 plus hours of gameplay. Plus, everything has been reworked from the ground up. There's all new art, and animations that look beautiful in 1080p. It's even 60 frames per second!
