"Too professional"? That's one of the most mixed statements I've ever heard! XD

I think what's throwing them off is that the brightness of the colors and the roundness of the font give off an appearance that would be aimed for a slightly younger demographic. I personally think that adding black contours or making "Freebird Games" an edgier, more elegant font would take some of that away.

There's no fighting the nostalgia for the old members (points at Vasha) so it can't win on all fronts, but I think it's getting better and better with each iteration.

For everyone else, cover the words with your hand and see if the bird is the problem or if it's the combination of the bird and the wording.

EDIT: Reives beat me. I think this looks even better! I'm partial to changing the font still, but I really can't argue with this. I think it's nice.

EDIT_2:Also, I like the eyes. I don't think they look evil. I think they have a "nature" look that's more interesting than a circle.

Ooh, I like that one better. I like the lighter color (that's part of what I was trying to say before, Merlan is just better than I could ever hope to be :P ), and I think I really missed the swoosh. I'm glad it's back.

The latest is the best!

Oh, and send our regards to your cousin! He's marvelous!

EDIT: You should make it so that the bird flies into the screen in the next game! That'd be AWESOME!

I'm reaaaaly going to miss our current awesome logo. But I agree, this looks a lot better. I personally like the earlier drafts where the bird was all one color, but I've always been a fan of mono-chromatic icons for logos. I think the bird looks a bit evil/angry. Other than that, I think the new logo's pretty awesome!

And lol at "too professional." I know what you mean (you were aiming for "it feels too corporate", but it's funny to see it written that way.)

I like the one without the bird feet better. The bird feet remind me of Donald Duck just the slightest. Otherwise, it's epic.  :fezesarecool:

Hm, I think the eye's less aggressive with the shadow thing to round it up. Newestest:

The eye may be less aggressive, but the whole picture is much more aggressive! I'm personally in favor of this.

Yeah, that's better. Don't want it too dark.

Also, when's the site being updated?

I think you should replaced the darkness/black outline with some other color. Maybe white or grey?

Hm... something feels a bit off. At first I thought it may be the top line making it feel too cramped, but I just edited it out and that wasn't it. I'm not sure...

Personally, I like the prior version (http://www.freebirdgames.com/images/logo17_transparent.png) better, since I think the hard black drop shadow doesn't really fit into the "soft atmosphere" of the picture. Otherwise, I like drop shadows so what I would try is to just lower the shadow's transparency :)
