It might have been a slow week news-wise, if not for Capcom and BioWare screwing up big time. Thanks, guys! Oh, and not sure if you heard, but Apple is releasing another new gizmo that’s sure to spin the masses into a tizzy.
To help promote the upcoming update to the world’s most popular video game, Rovio somehow how got an astronaut to perform real life Angry Bird antics in outter space.

Oh, and the new game looks cool, but one has to wonder which indie title Rovio has ripped off this time.
