    Angry Birds will be getting a Star Wars make over soon on PC, IOS and Android. It will be released on November 8th

    Somedays I'm certain Lucas has a contest or bet going on wondering how low he can take the Star Wars name

    Is this why the Angry Birds went into space?

    I am too. Mainly because Star Wars is dead to me. Like Natalie Portman's character in the prequel trilogy.

    I don't get the whole Angry Birds hate - it's a a fun game, practically a definition of how "casual" games should be made. Fair play, the Star Wars franchise has been pulled through mud a hundred of times by now, but as long as they make it fun, I don't mind.

    Before the complaints and outrage starts trickling in, it's worth noting: Star Wars has gone through worse than Angry Birds. A whole lot worse.

    And I'm in the same boat as Foxi. The amount of hatred and vitriol aimed at Angry Birds is pretty nonsensical.

    If it is going to be Angry Birds Space: 2 then I will be slightly more disappointed than I currently am.

    There are far worse things that can be melded with Star Wars and while I'm not into either I can't see this being that bad to be honest.

    It's just fun for kids, get a life, it's not like Lucas hasn't done worse himself, I can see hate for Ewoks & Jar Jar Binks seeing they were actually in the films but this is just toy spin offs.

    One day I hope I can go somewhere without seeing those stupid birds on absolutely everything. I will never see why everyone and their mother suddenly decided to worship Rovio and their birds.

    Its not a bad game or anything, its just "meh" to me, its the constant barrage of merchandise I'm constantly exposed to that pisses me off.

    I remember when angry birds first came out, it was cool. Now it's just :shit: , at least in my opinion.

    Why couldn't they just leave well enough alone?

    This is a good thing really. Rovio's over-saturation of this stupid game is bound to make people sick of the franchise.

    Give it a couple of years and Angry Birds will meet Guitar Hero in hell.

    Activision knows best on how to run a franchise into the dirt.

    The characters don't look right...
    I did like Angry Birds Space though, I'm assuming this is going to use the same or similar mechanics, so it should be fun.

    If this doesn't tell you that George Lucas doesn't fucking care anymore, I don't know what will.
