Time passes, things change and all good things must come to an end. So too must it end for this, the Year of Luigi.

Sure, Reggie and Iwata have said that the Year of Luigi will extend into 2014, but don't listen to them. Bargaining is one of the stages of grief, and they are surely inconsolable right now. We all know in our heart of hearts that when the clock strikes midnight tonight, Luigi's calendar year will be over.

So let's sit back and solemnly remember this, the Year of Luigi and look forward to new years to come.

Happy New Year, one and all.
