I do have to say, I am enjoying the Star Wars version of Angry Birds. I thought it would just be a lame skin, but it's actually a full-fledged game that makes decent use of classic trilogy geekage. And Chewie looks hilarious.

Hehe. Is it just me, or does everything seem to blow up easier than in the other Angry Birds games? Not that I'm complaining. In the least.

Well, if you think about it, the original Angry Birds didn't use lightsabers or blaster pistols!

My wife got an iPhone as her most recent upgrade, and as a little surprise for me she DL'd SWAB (Hey, yet another coincidental pirate reference!) for me to play while I was in the Pre & Post Op waiting room for my ear thing today.

It's a fun enough game I suppose, but personally, I found the wanton carnage wrought upon green pigs excessive. I'd have to rate this game G-17 (not suitable for Gamorreans under 17) and prefer instead allowing my younglings to play the free online flash-based Sonic the Hedgehog AB clone. True it is still anti-pig (or rather, anti-hog) violence, but at least its not as racially charged based solely on skin color.[/Necropost]

Voort, perhaps you would enjoy Bad Piggies better - the pigs are the stars, even if the title still vilifies them to some degree.

I have a DVD titled 'Bad Piggies: Sows Gone Hog Wild'.
That one is locked in daddies 'special' drawer.

Oh, I got it - I was just trying to let it pass un-commented upon. Not sure why I thought that would work.

I can just imagine Piggy telling the joke, Red and Gav speechless, but Face and Dru giggling like idiots.
