Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

This week, Zero Punctuation reviews Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

Watch Video

What I choose to take away from this is that a fact I have held from childhood is still true

Luigi > Mario

On a side note, those Toads are REALLY lucky that Luigi loves them so much.

But yeah, Luigi...Luigi all the way.

Falsename:
FIRST!
Have to use this power for good not evil.... Uh..... Prophet from Crysis 3 is a total dickbag!!

You could have at least been clever about it.

I was all ready to type up an elaborate paragraph with carefully capitalized words that, if used as an acronym, would spell a certain word.

OT:
Nice to know SOMEONE at Nintendo actually cares about doing something interesting.

Also this is the most erotic thing I have ever watched. Make love to me Yahtzee.

But is it as good as New New New New New New Super Mario Bros?

Also, the Gamecube controller is still the best controller ever made.

Aww now how can Nintendo fanboys accuse him of just being biased against Nintendo when he eventually gives Zelda:Another One a bad review

That was so homoerotic, I'm surprised C-3PO didn't make a cameo appearance.

Anyways, nice to hear Nintendo is doing something reminiscent of sentient, intelligent activity.

Hm. Makes the game look like something I'd like to give a go. I hope it doesn't have a boss as annoying as Boolossus got around the last 5 Boos.

On the subject of the Wii U and controllers and developers, I just want to make one quick point.

That review was practically rimming with praise.

Since when was Army of Two been a "mature" game?

It's achieved dick joke singularity!

Yahtzee...liking a nintendo game?!? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD.

No, but seriouslly I was suprised how well this game is since you are stuck with only one circle pad.

Well, that was...

*crosses legs*

...homoerotic.

Maybe luigi is the future of the mario franchise.

So... much... homoeroticism...

So there you go, guys, Yahtzee actually enjoyed a Nintendo property. You may all go mind your misplaced socks now.

DVS BSTrD:

*[The following has been censored due to violent and graphic sexual content]* That'll teach you to not use puns...

I really need a 3DS...

Those buttons are placed awkwardly, not sure if want...

OT: Luigi's Mansion 2, definitely on my "want" list now, I have never played the first one, but after getting a gamecube controller and some GC games for my Wii a few years back, my only though was "I wish I owned a gamecube as a kid for the godly controller" Instead limited to using the beautiful controller at a friends house for some Super Smash Bros Melee.

Jman1236:

No, but seriouslly I was suprised how well this game is since you are stuck with only one circle pad.

If I remember correctly didn't the first Luigi's mansion have fixed camera angles? (Haven't played this one yet) Games with fixed camera angles complement one circle pads correctly, so it's no surprise the game plays pretty well.

I did have quite an affection for the original Luigi's Mansion, I may have to consider getting this one, if only in part to boost my 3DS's meagre library. Also I agree, I've held for years that Luigi is more awesome than Mario.

erttheking:

Luigi > Mario

As it should be.

Spot1990:

Same way they always do. They'll conveniently ignore everything nice he's ever said in favour of their narrative of outrage.

CrazyCapnMorgan:

The restraining order prevents it. But I've said too much.

Enlong:

Which is awesome, as long as you don't want to play any games where there's some sort of primary tablet function.

Large amounts of homoeroticism and actually praising a Nintendo game...?

Yahtzee's having a midlife crisis, I think.

Does it come bundeled with the WiiU? What happens to all those touchscreen-features then (in games that rely on them)?
I'm genuinely interested, since I don't own one and it seems kind of odd that there are two controllers for one console of which one just lacks a core feature (touchscreen).

I bet you've never had to wring ectoplasm out of your facial hair

Well now you're just making personal assumptions about my character, Yahtzee.

OT: I own a sharp and pointy 3DS (for my sins) and to be honest I didn't give this game much of a look, having never played the original. However, Yahtzee's glowing praise is not a regular occurrence so I might just give this game a little look-see.

Enlong:
Snip

That's just an Xbox 360 controller with the right analog stick and the face buttons swapped round. It's hardly evidence for Nintendo's innovation.

*looks out window, sees pigs flying*

Hmm, Yahtzee must've given something from Nintendo a good review.

Wow I laughed my ass off that episode, it's been a long time since i laughed so hard at an episode of ZP. From the repeated dick and sex jokes, to the look on the raptors face as Mario condemned him to a bottomless pit. Man that was just great.

Also I liked Lugi's Mansion on the Gamecube.

"No" and "You can't play them" would be the most likely answers. And the controller is probably not even used in games that don't use the touch-screen at all. It is most likely like the "Classic Controller" for the Wii: Just a remodelled GameCube Controller. Except this time, they ripped off the rough design from the XBox instead of making a slighly larger SNES controller with two sticks below start and select (which was a good idea!)

The Wii U Pro controller looks pretty nice to me, but I've never minded any videogame controller except maybe the first Xbox controllers.

Luigi's Mansion 1 is pretty much a 3 hour tech demo for the Gamecube, so jumping into this one is probably a better idea, so if you want to get some more use for gamecube controllers get Windwaker, Mario Sunshine or the Pikmin games.

OT: I'm glad Yahtzee can stand not to be biased against Nintendo games, I guess if they don't have all the issues he has with them, (Playing as Mario or Link, being on the Wii or Wii U) he can praise them. Though I guess we already knew that with his love of Earthbound.

Damn you Yahtzee. Now I really want a Yorkie bar.
Still not sold on the 3ds though.

Anyone in the UK want to mail me a Yorkie?

There are only three Nintendo properties I know that I'll actually enjoy, Luigi's Mansion titles, Mario Karting, and Smash Bros. I am glad to see Nintendo finally caught on, now if only they'd made the game ported to a platform I actually own. This further makes me debate a 3DS, but I keep back-pedaling in order to upgrade my PC or get a big deal on Steam...

I'm really tempted to buy a 3DS for this. I am really that much of a loser?

Got Windwaker (loved it) and Mario Sunshine (yet to play it) and I might get the Pikmin games later.

Also, I wished Yahtzee would review Fire Emblem: Awakening, but its a little late for that, would have been interesting to see what he thought of it.

4 multi coloured Luigis?
Isn't that why there are those 3 other guys with hats?
...You know, Mario, Wario and Waluigi?

TheSniperFan:

I'm genuinely interested, since I don't own one and it seems kind of odd that there are two controllers for one console of which one just lacks a core feature (touchscreen).

As far as I know, it doesn't come bundled. I think it's a seperate controller to buy, like the Classic Controller was with the Wii. And like the Classic Controller, I think it can mostly be used in games without a primary tablet function.

However, that's the thing. Since this controller (and the default tablet) have the standard array of buttons, games can be made without tablet functions, without sacrificing the overall quality of the control scheme. Yeah, the Pro Controller is optional, but it's not like the Wii, where the default only had 4 buttons and a D-Pad without any add-ons.

Proverbial Jon:

That's just an Xbox 360 controller with the right analog stick and the face buttons swapped round. It's hardly evidence for Nintendo's innovation.

I wasn' saying anything on the subject of innovation, just that the Wii U has a comfortable, almost gamecube-esque controller option. Which I seriously hope more Devs pick up on. They can make games that control as normal, but have off-TV capabilities for those using the Tablet.

Or maybe use the tablet in other ways, like jsut making it a menu screen, but give users of the Pro Controller a regular menu screen (or transparent overlay) to use.

Since he same number of butotns are standard, they won't be losing money on people who don't buy the pro conroller, since they can sill play it on the tablet, even if the game doesn't have tablet functions.

And wasn't the Gamecube using a controller with similar buttons? Minus the second and third shoulder buttons, of course. I mean, standard controllers haven't really stretched very far since the days of the Gamecube. The most radical additions have been increasing numbers of L and R.

This wasn't one of the funniest reviews but still pretty informative heh.

Eh, I would like to play Luigi's mansion DM thought I am currently ...
Well lets say I was already 'sucked' into a really good game.

A game that is called Fire Emblem: Awakening.
And it is DAAAAMN good.
Hopefully Yahtzee can review it, but meh ... I'm enjoying it too much.

I just might get the new Luigi's Mansion if my wallet allows me to.
