The lights are on
This week we dust off a Gamecube title that didn't receive the credit it deserved, which is basically the titular protagonist's life story. This ghost-busting launch title defined the early Gamecube experience for many gamers, and polarized its audience in the process. We brought in some Luigi's Mansion newbies and veterans to sit down and settle the debate once and for all.
Join Dan Ryckert, Andrew Reiner, and guest Sean Lowery, Game Informer's former lead programmer, as we guide Mario's green-garbed sibling through the early sections of the haunted mansion. Neither Dan Ryckert or myself had any prior experience with Luigi's Mansion before this episode, and our inexperience is a good counter balance to Reiner and Sean's misty-eyed nostalgia. Noses bounce, names are yelled, and cabinets are violated in this special episode of Replay. Stay tuned for a ludicrously fast-paced roulette.
Note: This is Sean's first and only appearance on Replay before he departs from the Game Informer staff. I'd like to take the opportunity to thank our former lead programmer for starring on this week's episode, and for fixing the website after all the times we editors busted the thing. Good luck, Sean!

Nice, I was hoping you guys would do Luigi's Mansion. That game was awesome, it was my alternative to Resident Evil when I was like 10 because RE scared me too much at the the time lol.
Hey how bout a replay of super smash bros. ? hahahah
I would really like to play this, I never had a Gamecube. Also lol at the tags.
I had that for a while, played through the mansion and hidden mansion, then decided I didn't want it and traded it to gamestop
This was one of my favorite gamecube games, and I am glad that you are doing a replay of it.
I really wish there was a sequal to this on the Wii, or the 3ds now that its going to be here soon. That would be so awesome.
It's about time! Haha, but seriously, I loved this game and I still own it to this day. I remember staying up all night watching my brother play this. He beat it in one sitting then restarted to get the highest grade of Mansion and all of the secret ghosts. I remember when I finally beat it and finding all of the ghosts and (what I though was) all of the treasure and I still only got a B. =/
SO EXCITED! This is a gamecube game I always wanted to play but never got the chance to!
I always enjoy waking up to Replay, and this was a great one. I adored Luigi's Mansion when I first played it, and I'm dying to pick it back up now.
I've never played WarioWare but it looks crazy fun. I wish more of my friends played video games.
Good luck Sean - thanks for all your hard work!
Dan, your sound effects always make everything so much more entertaining haha =)
Awesome replay guys, both fantastic picks. And good luck, Sean.
Really liked the Luigi Facebook too, I think one of you is gonna have to make that now.
