After what seemed like forever of hyping and trailer releases, it’s November 8, 2012. That can only mean one thing for Android fans – it’s Angry Birds Star Wars Day! I’ve played through a few of the levels already and I have to say, I am happy. The soundtrack is exactly what I was hoping for. There are plenty of lightsaber “woosh” sounds and the overall look of the game pays mighty homage to the series that I love so very much. Now the only problem is how do I convince Kellex that I’m sick and watch the movies instead of work? (more…)
This will be the last time we talk about Angry Birds Star Wars until it launches, I promise you that. This morning, Rovio released the officially official launch trailer for the game that is set to release on November 8. They have hyped this game more than any other game I can remember, releasing teaser trailer, after gameplay trailer, after more gameplay trailers. (more…)
Today, Rovio has released yet another Angry Birds Star Wars gameplay trailer. This time we have the great Han Solo and Chewbacca kicking some Empire butt, and again, it makes us just ever so slightly less patient for November 8.
Although, if I had one request, it would be to cool it on the Cantina Band. Thanks.
Just about one more week, folks, and the teasing will finally come to an end. This morning, Rovio has released yet another gameplay trailer for the upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars game, featuring none other than some of our favorites, R2-D2 and C-3PO.
The game launches Nov. 8, so here we are, waiting as usual.
I still can’t tell whether this game really excites me or puts a bad taste in my mouth. After viewing this newly released short from Rovio, I’m leaning towards the latter. Star Wars is one of my favorite movie series and coupling it with Angry Birds is something I’m still struggling with. Maybe by the time the game comes out I’ll have a more pleasant outlook towards it. After all, it is just a silly game, right?
The game arrives for Android on November 8.
Last week, Rovio teased an image that lead us to believe there would be some type of Star Wars and Angry Birds themed goodness. This morning, we now know it is a full game and there will be a host of other swag such as animations and toys for kids. Set for November 8, Angry Birds Star Wars could possibly let players choose between the Rebellion and the Empire. Naturally, everything has some sort of bird or pig reference tied in. (more…)
This morning, Rovio is has many folks excited with the above image they released to their Twitter feed. As you can see, that bird is carrying a light saber, the favored weapon of the Jedi whom exist in the world of Star Wars. In the tweet, Rovio links to their Tumblr, which gives instructions for people to meet at Toys R Us at Times Square in New York on October 8th.
So, could Rovio be just making a toy line? I wouldn’t see them stopping there, as it wouldn’t shock me to see an add-on to Angry Birds Space, or possibly a whole new game called Angry Birds Star Wars. That would sell. We’re just days away fom Oct. 8, so we’ll keep you posted.
Rovio’s Bad Piggies hit Google Play this morning. So far, it’s kind of fun. The objective is to reach the end of the levels by building contraptions with a set amount of supplies you are given such as boxes, wings, and other misc. tools. The game is more fun than I had anticipated, but the pig’s laughter is very nauseating. (more…)
