This Luigi’s Mansion and Ghostbusters crossover tee is more inevitable than ingenious. A Google search will show that this comparison has been played to death. This shirt is the same as today’s offer. Well, that’s not totally true. Boos are way cooler than the generic scruff that fills most of the mansions Luigi shivers through. More importantly, this Boo glows in the dark. It costs less too, so get on it already!

The only way I can make sense of this shirt is if I imagine this is a scene in a musical. Little Red Riding Peach is singing about a fuming fire flower as a sneaky Big Bad Raccoon Mario eavesdrops. Other than that, I got nothing. What’s your interpretation?

New Super Mario Bros. U Review

The real challenge of the stages becomes hunting for their secrets. Learning how to find these hidden goodies takes practice, much like figuring out where that 2 belongs in an expert level sudoku, but the dedication pays more than a few 1-ups worth of coins.

Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Review

Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (3DS)
Developer: Sega
Publisher: Sega

Seeing Mario and Sonic come together to compete in the Olympic games every two years illustrates how unifying these athletic competitions are. Sure, while the rivalries between Nintendo and Sega are vastly more insignificant than say, the struggle between USA and Afghanistan, it is nevertheless fun to witness universes colliding. It certainly is not the most riveting way for these characters to unite – we all know that a creative platformer that successfully merged Mario and Sonic’s gameplay styles would be a lot more exciting. If Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics is any indication though, perhaps this partnership should remain ceremonious.
