SAN FRANCISCO CONSUMERS TO PARTY HEARTYAT EXCLUSIVE Wii PARTY TOUR STOP

Interactive Wii Party Airstream West Coast Tour Rolls Into San Francisco on Dec. 11

WHAT: It’s not often that holiday shoppers can gather together for a free, hands-on look at one of the season’s most remarkable games. Families and friends in the San Francisco area will be on their feet and having a blast when Nintendo of America’s extraordinary Wii Party Airstream West Coast Tour makes a stop at
Four Embarcadero Center on SATURDAY – one of only five scheduled stops in the region.

Consumers of all ages and backgrounds are invited to experience the one-of-a-kind social fun of the new Wii Party video game aboard a special Nintendo-themed 15-foot Airstream trailer. In addition to providing a fun-filled break for holiday shoppers, the Wii Party Airstream West Coast Tour will offer area residents a chance to win their own Wii console and a copy of Wii Party.

Created exclusively for the popular Wii system, Wii Party is designed to get families and friends on their feet and having fun together. The game features 13 party game modes and more than 80 entertaining minigames, some of which take the action from the TV screen into the living room.

For example, “Animal Tracker” challenges players to pick up the Wii Remote making a particular animal sound, while “Hide ‘n’ Hunt” asks players to locate a controller that’s been cleverly hidden by another player. Whether they’re playing cooperatively or competitively, Wii Party gives every player a turn in the spotlight by putting their customized Mii characters at the center of the action. More information about Wii Party is available at http://wiiparty.nintendo.com.

8-Bit Mario Mushrooms Add Color to Otherwise Grey Sunset District

Friday, August 14th, 2009

See what I mean?

Hanging Mario mushrooms about your vehicle is a good and inexpensive way to get pulled over for driving with obstructed windows. Everyone should be aware of California Vehicle Code 26708, Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver’s View. (It’s tough. Tough but fair.) Learn it, know it, live it.

To save Princess Toadstool, Mario conquers the eight worlds of the Mushroom Kingdom by going to the castle in each to defeat a minion of King Koopa. To reach each castle, Mario battles through three “sub-worlds” by defeating or avoiding King Koopa’s henchmen. If Mario successfully fights his way through the castle and defeats the minion, a Mushroom Retaineris freed. Inside the eighth castle, Mario has a final fight with King Koopa and frees Princess Toadstool.

Don’t stop believing.
