Cooking Mama

I'm not much of a gamer. The last gaming system I bought was a Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP several years ago. But a new title from Taito might push me towards the electronics store to buy myself a Nintendo DS Lite. It's a game called Cooking Mama, in which you test your cooking skills and get judged/scored by Mama. You use the stylus and touchscreen to prepare meals from start to finish — chop, slice, knead, mash, grate, peel, strain, etc. You can even blow into the mic to cool down food that's too hot! Whoa — what a neat concept! Click on the full link to see more screen shots, courtesy of IGN.

Chop the tomatoes!


Coat the chicken (or whatever that's supposed to be)!


Knead the dough!


Plate it up and show it to Mama. :)

Oh my gosh, this is just too cute for words! You can watch a trailer of the game here on You Tube (a longer, Japanese version is also up for viewing here). The Japanese version is already available, but the U.S. version won't be available until December 31. In the meantime, I could start setting aside a little bit of money from each paycheck for the "Nintendo DS Lite/Cooking Mama" fund.

I agree! I'd probably be addicted to it if I started playing.

That game sounds familiar, rick james. But I've never played it. Doesn't sound nearly as fun as chopping onions with a stylus, though!
