BYOBW Mario Kart

Came across this today, looks like it was great fun and a couple of racers made the extra effort to dress up as Mario and Luigi. Top Stuff!

Over a thousand race fans showed up today for the 7th annual Bring Your Own Big Wheel race down San Francisco’s Lombard Street, you know, the really crooked one. There were total of four runs down the hill with what must have been close to hundred racers, many with absurd outfits, trying to make it to the bottom of the hill on their plastic-wheeled vehicles. Here are the photos I shot of the big wheel chaos.

Hands on with Konami's Otomedius

April 16, 2007

Arcade play testing has become for Konami‘s moe-meets-Gradius boob bullet hell Otomedius. Here’s footage of the game on “expert”, which I hadn’t seen before. It looks like a solid shooter from Konami, but that touch screen is a definite turn-off. Just imagine how smudgy with finger oil it gets. And during Japan’s humid summer? GROSS.
