Nintendo’s first big mobile game had a fantastic reveal when it was shown off at an Apple event and Tim Cook said Mario would be coming to the App Store. Since launch, Super Mario Run [Free] has seen a few discounts for the IAP and it has also seen quite a bit of post launch support with content. Super Mario Run wasn’t a mindblowing runner but it was quite a bit of fun initially. It also featured a single IAP to unlock the full game and anyone can try out a few levels for free. The content updates so far have included new buildings, new characters, levels, an in game music player and more.
March 10th is Mario Day and Nintendo intends to celebrate this in Super Mario Run by offering a 50% discount on the in app purchase. Unlike Nintendo’s mobile games based on the Fire Emblem or Animal Crossing brands, Super Mario Run has a single IAP that unlocks the full game. It sadly still uses a persistent internet connection if that is something you care about. Beginning March 10th, Super Mario Run will have its IAP at 50% off. If you’ve recently gotten it and have wanted to pay less than the asking price of $ 9.99, you should wait until March 10th. The discount will run until March 25th so that’s two weeks. The official website also lists the prices in various currencies if you’d rather check the whole list out there instead of your local App Store.
I wonder if they will do anything else in game around Mario Day or whether the rumoured Super Mario Odyssey DLC will have anything happening inside Super Mario Run at the same time as a cross promotion event. If you do plan on taking advantage of the Mario Day sale or just feel like talking about Super Mario Run in 2018 use our forum thread and Discord server.
When open-world games were becoming all the rage in the 2000s, Burnout Paradise stitched the concept beautifully into a city-wide racing title that featured a wide range of tracks, game modes, and vehicles, and delivered more fun per mile than competing arcade driving games at the time. 10 years on, it’s making a comeback in the form of a 4K 60fps remaster for PS 4 Pro and Xbox One X – along with 1080p revamps for older versions. The multiplayer action, original soundtrack, eight DLC packs, and all 150 vehicles are along for the ride. From the comparison images showing…
When design leads to friendship, and that friendship leads back to design, magic happens. This is the story of how an intern and her mentor designed Apple’s original emoji set and together changed the way people communicate around the world. It was also a project that led them to become lifelong friends, a key ingredient in the success of these tiny icons. In a nutshell, I was the intern and Raymond is my lifelong friend and mentor. In the course of three months, together we created some of the most widely used emoji: face with tears of joy, pile of…

The original beta for Google’s Android operating system was released on November 5th, 2007, making today ten years since the first public release of the software. It’s tough to pin a specific date on Android’s origins—people usually reference either today or September 23rd, as that’s the date in 2008 was when 1.0-r1 was released—but November 5th is generally regarded as the Android’s birthday.
That means, as of today, Android is ten years old.
