In episode 13 of "Backwards Compatible: A Generation 'S' Podcast," Lou and I dive into the ghostly charm of "Luigi's Mansion" on the GameCube. We open with a look at the GameCube itself, discussing its distinctive tiny discs and unconventional choice to launch with Luigi as the star rather than Mario—a bold move by Nintendo. We delve into how the GameCube, often seen as an underappreciated console during its time, brought us unique and memorable gaming experiences, and express hope that Nintendo will continue to explore and revitalize these classic games for new audiences.

Additionally, we share our excitement about the upcoming re-release of "Luigi's Mansion 2" on the Nintendo Switch, anticipating how this beloved sequel will adapt to the modern console. As always, we wrap up with some pop culture reflections from September 1991, setting the cultural backdrop to the era when Nintendo was preparing to launch what would become one of its most iconic systems. Join us as we celebrate "Luigi's Mansion" and the quirky, innovative GameCube that introduced so many players to the quieter, more reluctant hero of the Mushroom Kingdom.
