    There we go. I didn't see the dash in the URL.

    I think it's nice that they added him again. I liked jumping higher, and the slipping effect didn't bother me too much in the last game.

    I am all for seeing and playing him in the game but he looks like a clone character, unless I'm mistaken, Luigi doesn't seem to jump that much higher.

    Also I embedded the vid for you.

    There wasn't much obvious difference between the two in the first one, Luigi was just more slippery in controls and could jump higher. Don't know if this video would show much of that.

    IDK if they're doing Luigi-specific levels or another "do the game over as Luigi" type of thing. Although really I'd like to do the game over with a significantly different character... Maybe Yoshi alone?

    This game is really shaping up though, if I had the money I'd pre-order it. Unfortunately I'll end up pirating this one.

    I think this pretty much proves that "240 stars" means 120 Mario/120 Luigi a la SMG 1 (even though, technically, there was 242 stars)

    Hell yeah! I've always been a Luigi guy for some odd reason. I pick him whenever possible. I guess I just like the appeal of an underdog character. [​IMG]

    Why? The challenge is what makes it fun. In contrast I'd preffer they make the unlockable even more complex...

    The original video allows you to click 'Next Video' and 'Previous Video'.
    I guess that's to give time for the users to click or just make the trailers seem longer than they are.

    I was just thinking, if they ever made a new super smash bros, those new power ups like the rock thing can be giving to mario or luigi in that game.

    Does that make sense? [​IMG]

    No, they won't. It would be both pointless and stupid.

    Sweet, but that makes me wonder: Is Luigi still the same as in SMG1? Because he was pretty much better than Mario in every way.
    It'd be too easy to play through the game with Luigi, though I guess they'll make an achievement or something where you still have to beat the game with both characters.
