    luigi is ok but just not mario. i really wanted to play luigi mansion but its not the same without the main star so i wont play it. the rpg is good with him as sidekick but not the main player.

    Tbh I really am looking forward to a Paper Luigi game where you get to play from Luigi's perspective from TTYD. I'd love to get more into the Waffle Kingdom and why every support character pretty much hates him hahaha

    I used to play Super Mario Bros. with my older brother and always wanted to play as Luigi (being the younger brother). But in the original NES version, you only alternated when one player died, so I had to sit for almost 15 minutes every time waiting for my brother to die just once. Yet I still always picked Luigi. Such is the power of Weegee.

    Luigi really does deserve more spotlight. And would it be too much to ask for Daisy to actually appear in one of these games? She is so much better than Peach it ain't even funny.

    Great read, Hank. So when are we getting the Year of Waluigi - the superior Wa brother? Waluigi Land or Waluigi's Mansion please!

    Truly a great character, mario games wouldn't be the same without him. If i had a 3DS i'd be all over dark moon.

    It's weird, but I've always liked Luigi as a character so much more than Mario, and this article does a great job at explaining why. The work that went into trying to differentiate him evidently gave him so much more personality. I love how the RPG games play up his goofiness and inferiority. That one part in Partners in Time where the bros attempt to get through the Star Gate (which seems to be purposefully winding Luigi up) is a personal favourite of mine.

    I think Luigis characterazation from the M&L games should be carried across all of his appearances. It is there that I fell in love with him and he not only became my prefered Mario Bros. but probably my favorite Nintendo character. Loving the spotlight GR is giving him.

    At the 6th picture all I could think of was "That's Mama Luigi to you Mario!"

    I'm commenting second, just like Luigi would!
  • shawksta - March 19, 2013 3:11 p.m.

    I was about to comment on Mr. L then i saw you mentioned the name in the end, YES. You were damn right about his personality in Paper mario and it increased in the whole alter-ego brainwashed Shenanigans of Mr.L, and dont get me started on the Final Boss. Awesome Biography, despite being the infamous Player 2 it was really great seeing Luigi grow as a character from then to now. You know what they should do to make the icing on the already fabulous cake that is Year of Luigi? Let the Wii U 3D Platformer star Luigi for once and have Mario as a secondary alt. option later on! CANT WAIT FOR THE WEEGEE GAMES THIS YEAR ^_^

    The only thing I didn't like about the final boss was I couldn't play as Luigi for it. In fact, while I did love everything about Luigi in Super Paper Mario, I wanted him for more of the game, once I got him I usually solely played as him.
  • shawksta - March 20, 2013 2:03 p.m.

    I agree but it was for the sake of his personality that the game built for him. Whats funny is basically WITHOUT Luigi, after gaining him, you technically make the game somewhat HARDER. Seriously, Bonechill was annoying when your not super jumping exploiting and Count Bleck was a hell allot harder to catch without the Super Jump XD
