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!

this was freakin great haha
This games a classic of last gen for sure.
Adios, Sean. Peace be the journey!
Wow, that brings back memories. These were definitely some of my favorite GameCube releases.
This was an excellent Replay; I've heard my fair share of complaints about Luigi's Mansion, but I think it looked a lot of fun.
Good luck Sean, the GI community is going to miss you!
Good job Tim for humming great Castlevania music. Also, best roulette ever.
Just loved this roulette...keep up the good work cutey :P
Keep sucking that tablecloth, Tim.
I liked LM a lot. The problem with it was that it had no replay value. That and people were desperate for a Mario title at launch.
Loved the Replay! Also, good luck to Sean! If you guys are whippin' out the old gamecube, you should do the original Pikmin for a Replay!
Four Swords is One one of my favorite game ever you MUST do a replay!!!!
Best Replay ever.
This was the best Replay you guys have ever done. You will be missed Sean!
This Game Was Too Sick !!!!
I always really wanted to play this game, but never got to, great choice (on my part :)
This was a great replay. I loved the end cover song and Facebook page for Luigi.
Good luck, Sean.
"Your not gonna get that toast!" Hahahaha. Best REPLAY ever! Hands down!
I remember being rather disappointed after buying my gamecube opening day and having only Luigi's mansion to play. Now, looking back, I have a HUGE urge to pickup that game and play it. I guess I wasn't a mature enough gamer to appreciate what I had.
I definitely need to get a warioware game. That was a HILARIOUS roulette!
