Angry Birds Space finally makes its way onto Steam

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...

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 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...

gamescom: Angry Birds Trilogy looks gorgeous on consoles

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!
