Luigi's Mansion website updates with part 4 of Professor E. Gadd's journal; 'That Nostalgic Mansion'

Back to where it all started

The official website for Luigi's Mansion has finally updated with the 4th installment of E. Gadd's journal. Check out a snippet of the journal below, then hit up the link for the full piece.

Now that I have successfully caused Gooigi to assume Luigi's shape and have taught him to wield the Poltergust, I've decided some practical experience catching ghosts is in order! But where to do that…

I mustn't forget that, if I hope to make use of Gooigi's Goo-based properties to give him capabilities beyond those of a normal person, I'll need ghost energy from beyond Evershade Valley. Thus, sending Gooigi elsewhere could solve both my problems! He would learn more from fighting ghosts, and he could collect ghosts for me at the same time! Heh heh heh!

Luigi's Mansion website updates with part 3 of Professor E. Gadd's journal; 'The Birth of Gooigi'

Professor E. Gadd has finally finished penning the third installment of his journal. This time around, we get to find out even more on how Gooigi came about. Check out the journal below!

This mysterious element I've come to call Goo has proven unlike any other element I know of. I'm confident that I can make great strides in my research if I can teach Goo to collect ghosts for me! My greatest invention, the Poltergust, is undeniably the best way to capture ghosts. I realized that Goo could learn to master the Poltergust if only I could cause it to adopt a humanoid form. The experiments began at once!

Digital Foundry - Luigi's Mansion 3DS analysis

What made Luigi's Mansion so special when it launched with GameCube and how much of the magic persists into the new 3DS version? This video details the history of the game, and has all the graphics comparisons and performance analysis you need. It's a really decent mobile version of a classic Nintendo title.

Grezzo has done a tremendous job in adapting the game to Nintendo's aging portable system and in the end, has produced one of the best-looking games on the system. The controls are also well implemented. If you're playing on a New 3DS, you get to use the nub just like the right stick on GameCube but this time, it can actually be inverted. You can also use the gyro feature to aim your vacuum up and down across all versions of 3DS hardware.
