So yeah. I'm so in love with Cooking Mama. Possibly because Mama reminds me of my own mom or possibly because there's nothing quite as satisfying as taking apart a squid on your DS screen, but I own both the original and it's sequel, and bought the Wii version for my parents, and I AM NOT ASHAMED. I know that it's repetitive and domestic and covered in sparkles and flowers but HELL I want my own fully-stocked kitchen and this is the closest thing I'm going to get for the time being.
Also- Professor Layton and the Curious Village is all kinds of win. Way to temporarily satiate my need for puzzles during the Myst dry spell!
