When I first encountered the almost psychopathically kawaii glare emitted by the female chef mentor in Majesco's Cooking Mama: Cook Off for the Wii, I had little to no understanding of what a 'cooking' game could possibly entail.
Lacking the culinary skills to begin with (hey, I'm a college-kid and subsist on ramen and quick-dials to the pizzeria), it took me a while to adjust to slicing, dicing, and meat grinding. But with a little practice, I'm no longer culinarily (is that a word?) challenged. Hey, Cooking Mama herself said that I was, “Wonderful! Better than Mama!”
In fact, I have been entered into the Cooking Mama's Cook Off gaming competition to be held this Saturday, March 31 at the Nintendo World store in Rockefeller Plaza. Will I aptly make the G-Hole crew proud and become a virtual iron chef? Shall I be utterly owned by a Cooking Mama obsessive who can mince polygonal shallots effortlessly? Only time will tell. Though I hear they're serving complimentary deserts at the event, so there's no question I'll be partaking.
