  1. Review: Broken Age Is a Better Kind of Boy-Meets-Girl Story

    It’s hard to pick up a game months after you last played it and know what the heck is going on. Most people would rather start over than try to figure out what they were supposed to do or where they had to go next. With Broken Age, players didn’t have a choice. The adventure game debuted in January 2014 as Part 1 of 2, so those who started playing it then (including me) had to sit back for over a year before we could see the second half of the story. The wait was definitely worth it.

  4. No, Your Phone Doesn’t Have a Virus; Those App Store Redirects Come From Difficult-to-Stop Ads

    We're sorry. We're so sorry.

    We here at The Mary Sue can sympathize with annoying ad behavior from autoplaying, unmuted video to redirecting users to other sites entirely. Mobile browser users with Android and iOS devices have been getting app store redirects for a long time, and though the problem is difficult to stop, it isn't cause for concern—just annoyance.

  5. The Princess Bride Is Now a Mobile Game as You Wish(ed)

    This means exactly what you think it means.

    Nearly 30 years after the fact, you might have thought a Princess Bride mobile game was inconceivable. Your hopes for such a thing were probably mostly dead. And yet, against all odds, that's what bwings us togevva today.

  6. GoldieBlox’s First App Will Teach Kids About the Magic Of… Gif-Making?

    Yeah ok.

    Y'all should be aware that I'm a big fan of movies, gifs, and girls learning about science (specifically, in this case, the science of early motion pictures and the zoopraxiscope). But my favorite thing about the trailer for GoldieBlox's first app has to be the little girl version of the trailer guy voice they have going.

    Would you kindly release iPhones with bigger screens, Apple?

  9. Fart Code App Leverages All the Sophisticated Technology of Your Phone to Rate Your Food’s Fart Power

    Farts have so much to teach us.

    In a silent but deadly attempt to get children—or adults who understand good comedy—to pay attention to nutrition labels, Fart Code reads barcodes and translates all that boring talk about "calories" and "ingredients" into terms that resonate with us: fart power.

  15. BlackBerry Messenger Is Available for iOS and Android, but You Have to Wait Your Turn

    We thought the point of the Internet was not waiting in lines.

    It's a great day for BlackBerry users, as their beloved BBM proprietary messaging service has finally gone cross-platform. We tried to take the iOS and Android versions for a spin, but demand for accounts on the service is supposedly so high that there's a virtual line. Yeah, we were surprised, too.

  16. Here’s the Video of Yesterday’s Apple iPhone 5S Keynote, In Case You Missed It [Video]

    It cuts off right before Elvis Costello, though. Boooo.

    Yesterday was completely abuzz with news of the new iPhone 5S and 5C, but once again Apple chose not to actually live stream the event. Now they've finally got the video up so all the plebes who couldn't fit in that ridiculously tiny Town Hall room can see for ourselves what the fuzz is about.

    La La La'ing all the way to the bank.

  18. New Tetris Mobile Game Takes a Page From Pokemon, Looks Awesome

    Gotta fit 'em all!

    It almost goes without saying now that the two most addictive things to come out of portable gaming are the brick-racking frenzy of Tetris, and the monster-collecting of Pokemon. So it seems odd that it's taken this long for a developer to mash these ideas up, but that's just what EA's done with recently announced game Tetris Monsters.

  19. Usain Bolt Now Playable in Temple Run 2, So Fast He’s Probably Hard Mode

    Why settle for someone slower?

    Celebrity cameos in games are always fun to see -- remember Space Michael Jackson in Space Channel 5 Part 2, or Ricky Gervais performing standup in GTA IV? Well, there's another great example now: Superb sprinter and Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is now an unlockable character in everyone's favorite running game, Temple Run 2.

  20. Holy Smokes, Firefly Online Teased at SDCC

    You can't take the skyOS from me.

    Browncoats rejoice: Fox is bringing Firefly back. But not, you know, as a Netflix exclusive series or something like that. Nope, they've decided to release Firefly Online -- technically they're calling it a "multi-user social role playing game" rather than an MMO -- for mobile devices. No word if Joss Whedon is involved in any way, but anything that's actually official is kind of a welcome gift at this point. The bottom line to all this is that I want my digital Nathan Fillion, and I want him now.
