How Facebook Powers Up Angry Birds, or Enter the Birdquake

Rovio's smash hit Angry Birds is coming to Facebook on Tuesday, but it's not making it to the world's largest social network without getting some community-aided enhancements. Play well with others and you could earn one of the four brand new power-ups that make the Mighty Eagle look like ... just the Eagle.

Earned through playing or gifted by your Facebook friends, the four new power-ups are the perfect way to flatten the playing field between the birds and pigs. Perhaps I meant level the playing field? Not in the case of the Birdquake. Flatten was the proper term.

The Birdquake, Sling Scope, Super Seeds, and King Sling should add an extra layer of strategy to those more difficult levels, which should be nice considering you won't be able to pause and reset over and over again like you do in the iPhone version. Come on, you know you do.

DISCUSSION

Somewhat related I was listening to some news report thing on the radio this morning and it was talking about game writer's becoming more recognized through some new video game writer's award category in a show.

The opposing view was a video game magazine writer who said that some games don't even need words to tell a great story and then he mentioned The Sims and Angry Birds.

The fact he didn't mention something on the level of Ico astounds me.

But Angry Birds, for its great story...
