Daddy Long Legs Review

Never before has a videogame made me appreciate the complexities of walking. Daddy Long Legs, a game in which you play as a fragile spider, has done just that.

Getting out of bed in the morning and walking downstairs is a daily routine that I’d never given much thought — it just happens.

Think about it: this complex routine includes moving from a comfy vertical position to a horizontal one, walking bleary-eyed to a bedroom door, to then taking on the challenging descent down a flight of stairs.

This series of tasks is managed with the greatest of ease, so I found myself somewhat sympathising with the arachnid of Daddy Long Legs, who tends to struggle with even the most basic one-two movement.

Mario Kart 8 for Wii U - Link DLC by

Mario Kart 8 DLC Delivers, Fails On Price Parity

An untimely listing spotted on the Nintendo UK website Tuesday let slip details of planned downloadable content (DLC) for Wii U hit Mario Kart 8.

The webpage details how classic Nintendo character Link from The Legend of Zelda series will surprisingly be made available as a racer in one of two upcoming DLC packs. A range of new tracks, characters and karts were also revealed ahead of schedule, with plenty of callbacks to other well known Nintendo franchises such as Animal Crossing, Excitebike and F-Zero.

However, it wasn’t only the content that got spotted early — both the release schedule and pricing for the DLC was also erroneously on show.
