  • Luigi’s Mansion

    Luigi’s Mansion

    I am watching my wife play Luigi’s Mansion and I can’t but not wonder – Is Luigi’s Mention Nintendo’s take on Capcom’s Resident Evil? They are similar – wondering around a mansion, lone hero, ghosts instead of zombies, looking for keys! Nintendo’s version is just more … family friendly.
