    How did you feel the first time you played this game? Were you expecting a more traditional Mario game with Luigi at the helm? Or were you ready for a totally new experience?

    Sorry for being late really. When I first played this game as a kid it was the best game. I remember little me saving up money for the game! :D
    Actually no I wanted the idea of a only Luigi game, of course me being an idiot I was searched online how to play as Mario. So yeah I wanted a new experience.

    I don't know if I can ask another question, but here goes. How do you think it compares to Dark Moon?

    I bought Dark Moon super exciting. It really brought me down as I played it though. The boss battles weren't interesting and the idea of fighting the same boss over and over (technically) for dark moon pieces was boring for me. I was also hoping for them to reference the old Luigi's Mansion somehow in Dark Moon, but they didn't so that made me upset. In all I would give it a 6/10.

    Also just an interesting side fact. I plan to buy a unopened copy of Luigi's Mansion from eBay to show my love for the game (and keeping it forever)! It's my all time favorite! I even do speedruns in my free time. Still working on both of those though.

    Sorry to hear about your disappointment with Darkmoon.

    Wow you are a true fan. I guess you were the perfect person to run this kyg.

    If so, what's your PB?
    Favorite ghost?

    I am working on speedruns, pretty bad atm but I will get better (I do glitchless and glitch). My time is average. I am not timing myself yet until I know I am getting really fast.
    SPOILERS!!!: My favorite ghost

    How satisfying is it to pull off the glitch where you clip using Shaunci's defeat chest? (I know I butchered the name. First boss)

    Veeeery satisfying. Like eating pizza when you crave it the most. Only pulled it off once actually by luck. I failed most steps though never got to the King Boo. Still trying.

    Do you try every time with a new run? Or do you try with savestates to practice the glitch? Does Dolphin even have savestates?

    For the original Luigi's Mansion my favorite mechanic was the fire, ice, and water pultergeist mechanic. I think it was an innovative idea allowing you to use elements to unlock special paths or even defeat some special types of ghosts. My least favorite mechanic is the function to yell "Mario!" for no reason, I don't play this game and hate it the entire time. I just think it is useless and if they wanted to let the A button do something they should've thought of something better. For Dark Moon my favorite mechanic I can't really say honestly. I know the lore behind both games and everything, but I only play the original Luigi's Mansion a lot not the newer one.

    Not every time, sometimes I play for fun. Also I usually restart speedruns if I stop for any reason. I only use Dolphin for the HD mods and I can't wait for the Luigi's Mansion HDPRO Unreal Engines 4 release! :D

    Hmm now that I think about it the baby boss theme was catchy itself (too lazy to post :P). 9/10 because some people get butthurt at me when I say 10/10. My most frustrating moment in this game is just the final boss, it's harder than it really looks. Other than that there is none. I would recommend this for anyone looking to get away from Mario for a little bit and know the fun side of his brother Luigi. It also has some story that true Mario fans won't know unless they play the game.
