Okay, okay I admit this pick was technically an easy pic and yes I said no horror games. However I don’t consider Luigi’s Mansion to be a horror game because it’s not in the same vain as Resident Evil, Left 4 dead, or even Five Nights at Freddy’s. I think of it more like The Haunted Mansion ride at the Disney Parks then a flat out horror game. Coincidentally, in some respects this theme does resemble The Haunted Mansion to a degree. Most importantly the very haunting music is what sets the mood for the game itself. I have found multiple versions of the theme but some of the more eerie ones tend to be the one with Luigi humming the tune to himself, presumably while walking through the mansion. The other is from the Smash Bros. 4 version which starts off with a music box sound. Which begs this question who decided that a music box was scary?

You know my obsession with all things Donkey Kong 3 runs deep…32 years deep. I’ve done several posts devoted to this game, and how I feel about it’s amazing yet overlooked gameplay. More importantly, the main hero of the game, Stanley Bugman. He’s the top of a very short list of amazing Nintendo characters that have been placed on the wayside after their debut game. Heck, I use one of those characters as my icon (albeit, slightly altered.)
We’ll get back to this guy soon (he is a fighter, after all!) But this is about Stanley. He is the protagonist in Donkey Kong 3 , as you all know. He’s botanist with a pretty special sprayer (or BLASTER as I call it.) He can even get a Super Blaster if he gets old DK up high enough! He shoots all the bugs that attack him and his plants, as well as that mean Donkey Kong. He jumps pretty high as well (I’d say between Mario and Luigi.) For those of you that haven’t played this great game before- check it out!
Rumor has it, he’s the COUSIN of Mario and Luigi! To prove it, here’s a picture from last years annual picnic!
The resemblance is uncanny!
Which brings me to todays post. It seems the good folks at Nintendo want our input- about what characters to put into Super Smash Bros. We touched base on it in our last episode of The Electric Circus. And for that reason, I’m starting a SAVE STANLEY campaign! It would be AMAZING to see Stanley in Super Smash Bros as a fighter! With his trusty BUG BLASTER and control of all those bugs from DK3 at his disposal (just like they did with the dog and the ducks from Duck Hunt!) And Arcaders- just so that we are clear- it’s for this version of Smash Bros. Not a future release! and thats where YOU come in! Go over to https://cp.nintendo.co.jp/us/ and you can cast your vote for Stanley! And you have to 10/3/2015 to get em’ in! And if we get enough votes, and get him in the game, I’ll be putting a special shirt design on the T-shirt page to purchase (coming soon!) that will show the world you voted for your favorite Bug Blasting 8-Bit Hero! So, click on the banner and let you voice be heard!
