Rovio puts out teaser video for Bad Piggies, its Angry Birds spin-off

Rovio puts out teaser video for Bad Piggies, its Angry Birds spin-off
First, we have a question: does anyone still play Angry Birds? It seems like it is still popular, but one of those things that is just part of day-to-day life like Tetris was on your Texas Instruments calculator in math class.

We first heard about Bad Piggies through a press release a couple days ago, and now Rovio has the first official video teaser for the game. The catch phrase at the end is the inevitable pun "Something PIG is coming". Har Har!

The video doesn't really give much indication as to what the game will be, but we couldn't help but wonder at the characters in the video. So far, we've been playing from the perspective of the Angry Birds, and attacking the pigs. But, why are Angry Birds such sympathetic characters? They're just angry for no real reason. It's the pigs that are having their structures destroyed, and they just keep building (much like those lovable Doozers). So, will the new game make us hate the Angry Birds and sympathize with the pigs?

The birds aren't angry for no reason, those pigs stole their eggs! (and in the case of Rio, their friends got locked up) I bet this game will still show the pigs as the bad guys, its just that you'll get to play as them. Because sometimes, you gotta root for the bad guys.

I was thinking the same thing. How can he say that the birds are angry for no reason?

Makes you wonder if Michael H ever got past the intro screen in Angry Birds, LOL. If not, guess I can't blame him for thinking the birds are angry for no reason.

Guys theres 2 sides to every story, I think its only fair to hear the pigs out. Maybe they had a legitimate reason for taking the eggs, or perhaps they didnt even take the eggs, meybe someone dressed as a pig started this whole thing. Maybe the pigs already had a patent on elliptical type objects that were infringed upon. Are we going to beleive the birds just because they showed a 200 page email where the pigs try to copy the egg. Im just sayin, these pigs deserve a fair trial. And if its worth it. I'll pay the $0.99 for the full version.

We're led to believe that the Pigs stole the eggs, but the most they ever do is put them in protected places. Did you ever think that maybe the Pigs are acting like Social Services and keeping the eggs from obviously violent and potentially abusive parents? In the case of Rio, the Pigs locked up birds, because how long have they been attacked and had their homes destroyed by the birds? If the locked up birds are friends of the Angry ones, how do we know that they weren't trying to infiltrate the Pig world, and take them down from the inside? They could be bird terrorists! Are you defending terrorists? Okay, that's enough of that. I'm out.

I think the angry birds craze has run past its sell by date,it was good wil it lasted though and the devs certainly made sure it lasted quite longer than other crazes like draw something

Nah, WP and Playbook will get it, Im just sure they'll have to wait a while compared to iOS and Android, like usual.

wow, you guys never got that? Rovio must really not care much about the WP platform. Got those on my PB, although I have a feeling that may be just because of the 2.0 update which makes porting android apps easy, probably the only reason they bothered, lol.

Bejeweled....bored of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Instead, i'd till love to overdo the previous high score in Angry Birds all over again!!!!

Agreed, Im a fan of Popcap, but Bejeweled is arguably their most boring game. Play Plants Vs Zombies or Peggle instead.
