​Even though we thought we'd finally be done posting about Angry Birds by now, here we are with our second post about the game today. To be more specific, this one is about the game's music - our good friends over at City Pages have five versions of the game's iconic theme song that will blow your mind. 

My favorite is the mash-up with Queen.

Anyway, what are you waiting for? Check out all five remixed versions of the Angry Birds theme right here.

Super Soviet Missile Mastar Available Now - For Free!

Destroy the American oppressors!
​I'm a big, big fan of independent game development studio The Behemoth. You may know them as the weirdos behind games like Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers or the upcoming Battleblock Theater. Well, today The Behemoth announced a new game, but it's actually an old one. Huh?

Try to keep up. The Behemoth's first game, Alien Hominid, featured several minigames, such as Super Soviet Missile Mastar, a faux Atari-era Russian game in which you steered a giant missile towards the home of capitalist pigs, America.

And now the game is available on its own - for free. Because hey, it's for Commies.

Alan Wake Developers Reviving Old Game, Not Creating New One

Remedy, the brains behind psychological horror hit Alan Wake, are not looking to the future just yet. They aren't laying out a fresh labyrinth plot line, chock full of 1990s pop culture references, or crafting a new adventure.

Instead, they are exhuming an old game and putting it on the iProducts. It is called Death Rally, and it involves, as you might guess, death and rally cars. You could've played it all the way back in 1996, when it first released, but not like this. Back then cell phones were the size of babies and the only thing screen-touching would do is leave fingerprints. My a lot has changed, but hopefully not the frenzied, explosive fun.

Just when you thought they couldn't spread any further...
​We honestly thought that there were no Angry Birds stories left to tell. After dominating the iPhone, iPad, Android phones, being parodied on TV and online, where else was there for Rovio's hit game to go? Apparently into physical form.

This May, Mattel will be releasing Angry Birds: Knock on Wood, the first board game based on the mobile game. In it, two players will compete to destroy pigs by launching birds at them, with what appears to be a spring-loaded bird launcher.

Throwing stuff in REAL life? Sold!

Award-winning iPhone games are feeling cheap.
​'Tis the season for great deals. It's also the season to remember the less fortunate and give to charity. It's great when you can kill two birds with one stone, isn't it? You can today.

Inspired by successful charity game sales like the Humble Bundle, six indie iPhone game developers have made their games available for $0.99 each, with a third of the proceeds going to charity. Perhaps not quite as generous as the Humble Bundle, but every little bit helps, right?

Which games are included in the sale?

PSPhone or PSPhony? Sigh... sorry about that one.
​The existence of the Android-based PlayStation Phone is still technically a rumor, but then again so is a fifth Indiana Jones movie, and we're pretty sure both will happen whether we want them to or not. 

The PlayStation Phone continues its march towards "totally happening" with a new batch of rumors that suggest both when it will release and what it will be called. 

Heck, we've even got video of the device after the break. Yup, this sucker is totally happening
