The lights are on
We would never condone this sort of defacing of public property. We're just saying it's kind of awesome. A post on BikePortland.org is revealing some mischief at work from a fan of Mario's adventures on the race courses of Mario Kart. Apparently, one of the bike paths in town has been getting some inexplicable power-ups. Bananas, mushrooms, and stars are no doubt put in place to let bikers beat their opponents in the race. We at Game Informer are still waiting for word on whether the special pick-ups are providing any significant bonuses. If you live in Portland, and can confirm the ability of these drawings to transform your bike into a zooming Kart driven by Donkey Kong or Yoshi, please contact us immediately, so we can update the story. Given the illegal nature of these activities, we'd hate to see this start happening in other cities around the country. Unless, you know, it was pretty funny.
