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 mo...

Mama proves she knows her place:Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop

Cooking Mama 3 still has Mama stuck in the kitchen

I'm not a pig, so I won't blindly say that Mama has found her place in the kitchen. But really -- the woman never leaves the kitchen! Well, she does hit the garden now and again, but it seems that she can't stay away the stove. You need to ...

Mama and Papa got... it... ooooon!

When Activision announced Science Papa it was easy to assume that it had something to with Cooking Mama. After all, it sounds like basically the same game just with different interests and different sexes. However, Majesco publishes the ins...

Cooking Mama really gets around: 4 million games sold

Cooking Mama can be kind of a bitch, but there's something about her that keeps me coming back. It's probably some weird combination of my food lust and a touch of domestic woman fetish. Did you know she's going five games strong now? Cooki...

New Gardening Mama screens looking pretty cute

When I first saw the videos for Gardening Mama, I was more or less convinced I was going to pass on it. While I have enjoyed the Cooking Mama titles, the gameplay offered is such light fare that I alwasy find myself getting bored with it af...

Majesco slaps down the trademark for Crafting Mama

I like Cooking Mama games. I really do. They're simple, but there's something about them that appeals to my obsessive complusive disorder. When I heard about Gardening Mama, I thought, well, it's technically more of the same, but I'll proba...

Gardening Mama shows off her green thumb in new trailer

While I can't deny that there's something borderline sexist in all of Mama's girly activities, there's also something kind of fun about them (although maybe I think so because I have a vagina). If you agree, check out this new trailer for G...

Gardening Mama bends over in America Spring 2009

An innuendo-packed post from earlier this year told you about Gardening Mama, the next in the series of Taito's Mama games. I was going to follow it up with another sexually charged news post, but I think Jim used all the good ones. How abo...

E3 08: Hands-on with Cooking Mama World Kitchen

I like the Cooking Mama series. It's fun, easy to play, and best of all, easy to pick up and put down at any moment. I'm going to be honest though: I reviewed both DS incarnations, and as much as I liked them, I felt like I wouldn't buy the...

New Cooking Mama feast in the works, now in 3D

I love the Cooking Mama games for both the DS and the Wii. Sure, they're casual games that boil down to really simple control gestures, but there's something about the style and character that I find addictive. Plus, I'm drawn to bitchy/cra...

YO! Sushi dishes up Cooking Mama 2

Like most DS owners, I carry mine with me for a lot of reasons: having a few games at my disposal during time in the doctor's waiting room or on a bus is a great way to kill time that would otherwise leave me fidgity. I can't say I've ever ...

Flaming eyes on your phone: Cooking Mama goes mobile

North Americans: You'll just have to take my word on this, but (some) Japanese mobile phone games are incredible. At TGS, we played fully-3D, motion-sensitive titles that had some actual depth and gameplay, and we came away totally jealous....
