Miyamoto nixed all the original Luigi's Mansion 2 bosses

Shigeru Miyamoto may not have had direct day-to-day involvement in the development of Luigi's Mansion 2, but that didn't stop him from waltzing in and acting like a total boss.  During an interview with IGN, Bryce Hollid...

This Poltergust 5000 replica should scare off some ghosts

Nintendo challenged the folks at iam8bit to put together a "functioning" replica of Luigi's ghost sucking Poltergust 5000 from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. They did exactly that, because ghost catching is serious business. If I can get my hands on this and a working Proton pack, I'll stop having to worry about Patrick Swayze forcing me to make pottery.

New releases: BioShock Infinite finally arrives photo
New releases: BioShock Infinite finally arrives
by Fraser Brown

This week, I welcome Monday with open arms, inviting it into my living room, and even introducing it to my parents. Strictly speaking, it's really Tuesday I want to embrace, because that's when BioShock Infinite launches. But since I'll undoubtedly be staying up all night to play it the moment it unlocks, it will still be Monday in my deluded, sleep-deprived mind.

Jim's got a lot to say about the latest instalment of Irrational's franchise, almost all of it good. Will it be the nigh perfect game many of us were hoping for? We'll find out soon enough. I've already let friends and family know I'll be "indisposed" for the next few days. Yeah, I'm pretty excited.

But BioShock Infinite isn't all we've got to look forward to this week. 3DS owners can rejoice, for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon also drops this week, and Chris had a spooktacular time reviewing it. It's really starting to be difficult to not splash out on a 3DS -- damn my limited funds! Inexplicably, another Army of Two title is also coming out; Pokémon fans get another game to add to their likely gigantic collection, this time in the form of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity; and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 launches with lots of golf clubs and a philanderer. 

What are you splashing out on this week?

Review: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon photo
Review: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
by Chris Carter

Despite all of the credit it deserves, the original Luigi's Mansion was a very basic experience, which alienated gamers who were left wanting more. Nintendo fans decried everything from the simplicity, to the lack of replay value, to the lack of variety in the game's mechanics.

Thankfully, Dark Moon expands upon the tried-and-true, fun formula of the original and in just about every way transcends it.

Iwata and Miyamoto star as the Luigi brothers

I'm ridiculously excited about Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, as the lanky member of the Mario Bros. duo will always have a special place in my heart, much more so than his showboating, portly brother. Miyamoto has th...

First look at Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon's multiplayer photo
First look at Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon's multiplayer
by Steven Hansen

Luigi's Mansion launched with the GameCube to little fanfare, oft forgotten by all but its most ardent fans. When news of a 3DS Luigi’s Mansion dropped out of the blue, it reinvigorated this base, but news since has been sparse. Now I'm here to get you excited all over again.

Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is alive and well. It even has a damn cool multiplayer component. It could just be the best ghost-based property since Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby collaborated for Ghost Dad. Also, I’m sure it will be much better than Ghost Dad. That goes without saying.

We haven't brought you a hands-on preview since we fawned over the game at E3 2011, but last week I was able to play a good heap of the game, including one of its new, previously unannounced multiplayer modes and one of the single-player boss battles. If you thought you were going to avoid its spectral hooks in light of another, increasingly characteristic heavy spring slate, I'm here to tell you: you don't stand a ghost of a chance.
