That's what Nintendo says, anyway. Its celebration of our favorite high-jumping plumber has come to a close. There's even a commemorative website with lovely messages and art from fans.
But we know better. We know that, once unleashed, Luigi can't be stopped. His decade continues. read

Here are a few basic tips to help you get started. read feature

I'm a big fan of this middle-aged Japanese Luigi from a new Nintendo Japan commercial. He's got some years on him, a creeper grin, and an awesome voice.
I think they should go international with this dude. Like, Kevin Butler him up or something. I'd be okay with it being limited to The Year of Luigi if need be. read
