Angry Birds Attack in Lego Form

Rovio –  The makers of Angry Birds, the most downloaded mobile game ever, today announced a partnership with The LEGO Group to develop a line of construction toys.

legoangrybirdsNow this is a billion dollar idea.  A grape, not a raisin.  I have no idea if they will create this the way that I envision it in my mind but I’ll give you a run down.

  • Birds are not legos.  They are essentially marble sized projectiles that will get sling shot into a structure.
  • Structures are built in simple, bigger lego form.  Since they are going to be knocked down, you can’t be spending hours building a fortress that comes down in one shot.
  • Pigs are placed in various areas of the structure and once crushed, they explode.



Will It Be Made This Way?

Dynamic-Lego-Angry-Birds-3D-puzzle-9No it won’t.  There is too much risk of the game spiraling out of control and the kids using the sling shots as weapons.  Most likely the birds will be made out of pillows and the structures out of feathers.   The pic to the right looks boring as shit.  I don’t want to build a projectile I’m going to shoot.  I want my projectile to be fast and punishing.  I want to spend time destroying and not building.  Maybe the kids could wear goggles when playing.  This game has potential.

New Site

I’ve decided to buy another domain name and create another site. I already have the idea and hopefully with the increase in traffic to this site, it will be easier to kick start the other. It should only take me a day or two to set up word press and I have chosen a theme with a myriad of ideas so it should never go stale. I think it will give me some more direction compared to this site which took me almost two years before Google found it. I haven’t really decided what I’m going to do with this domain name. I obviously figure on keeping it but how I’m going to decide on which content on which site will take some thought. I do think that this is going to be a good idea though or else I wouldn’t do it. It may be a tad extra work to keep two sites going but honestly what else am I doing right now. I’ll put a link to it in my blogroll when I put it live.

Just a quick Angry Birds update. I 3 starred every level in the Halloween version as well as the season’s. I haven’t played the original but the graphics seem terrible to these last two so I don’t really see any reason to. I’m pretty happy to say that I hope this is the last video game I ever play because the frustration involved with this game does not make it worth playing for a significant time. I probably spent between 10-20 hours playing it so it brought me back to my high school days of completely wasting time. There is literally no gratification received from finishing this game. At least in some games on playstation they’d give you an ending or something but this was just completely nothing which just reinforced my will of never wanting to play a game again. Me vs the computer is finished.
