Luigi

Aw yeah Luigi time!
Dr. Luigi is out today, and it not only signals the end of 2013, but the end of the first Year of Luigi as well. While most of it is pretty straightforward for Dr. Mario fans (the game even has a classic Dr. Mario mode), there are some new concepts that might make things a bit tricky. Here are a few basic tips to help you get started. read feature

A fitting end to the first Year of Luigi
Dr. Mario is the bane of my puzzle gaming career. I loved it ever since I picked it up for the first time in 1990, but I've never really reached the point where I can say that I mastered it, unlike many other Nintendo release... read feature

DTOID News drew some hot Santa Claus fanart.
Hey gang! Sorry I wasn't around on Tuesday, but there wasn't a whole lot of news -- so here's a rundown of today's big news, including yesterday's big ol' Nintendo Direct, that new realistic medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and the Xbox One's upcoming documentary series on the E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Atari 2600 game. No, seriously. read feature

Year of Luigi no more
In this, our Year of Luigi, 2013, a terrible thing has happened. Somehow, this one minigame in NES Remix seems to have slipped by Iwata. Is it a conspiracy from Reggie to axe the extended 2014 Year of Luigi celebration?... read feature

Luigi 2DS spotted! It looks better than the Luigi 3DS


Year of Luigi rolls on
Oct 24
Kotaku received some pictures of what appears to be a Luigi-themed 2DS. I want it. It's a simple white with green trimmings (buttons and so on) and a Luigi etched into the back. It's a lot cleaner than the cool, but busy Luig... read

New Super Luigi U

Luigi, the parkour legend


Now THIS is an advertisement!
Aug 24

I'm a big fan of the middle-aged Japanese Luigi


Weegee-san
Aug 08
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
