E3 10: Don’t be a baby shaker with Babysitting Mama

Babysitting Mama was a surreal experience. Standing in front of me was a Majesco PR rep named Manny, a bearded fellow who would be the last person I’d expect to be rocking a stuffed baby doll in front of me. Yet here he was, rhythmically moving the doll back and forth to quiet it. I wanted to ask if there was a baby shaking mini game, but I felt it would be in poor form.

This is basically Babysitting Mama, a game in which a Wiimote is stuffed into the back of a baby plush, and from there all your babysitting actions take place. Rock it back and forth, lift it up and down, shake the nunchuck to pacify it enough for a cute picture — Babysitting Mama is exactly that. Weird!
