Nintendo. No. Stop.
Internet is in Rage mode after finding out that the new Exclusive iOS game from Nintendo called 'Super Mario Run' needs your iPhone or iPad to be always connected the Internet to be able to play, leaving you with Mario-less action in subways or other places.
It turns out big 'N' has decided that their very first Mario game on a mobile device should work only if you have always-on-internet, once you have lost your signal, you have lost your ability to smash mushrooms or collect coins, or get Mario to jump over boxes.
Above is the list of reasons that Nintendo claims is why their new Mario is not as portable and mobile as it should be, but personally I think the reason is they want to control the game and to stop possible piracy of their $9.99 iOS app, so what better way then to monitor all the iPhones that are running it to make sure their 'gaming device' is legit and purchased one!
