    jp's Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends (DS)

    [February 14, 2018 06:55:56 PM]
    I recall having a strong negative reaction to this game (or was it maybe the Trauma Center sequel?) from not being able to get through even the most basic challenges. Definitely didn't have that experience this time around. As I set this aside, I have to questions I'm curious about. First, do people learn anything about cooking from the game? Obviously the skills you practice in the game have no real relation to real-world cooking skills - but, has this game been successful in any degree in getting people who are otherwise scared/ignorant/uninterested in cooking to try it? Are people now aware of what ingredients go in which dishes? How they are prepared? The order of things? It's not that I think it's a good way to learn how to cook, rather that I wonder if it's had any effect... Second question, "mama" speaks in English but with what sounds to me like a very strong Japanese accent. It felt a bit off-putting because it was almost like making fun of someone's accent? Anyways, it was weird...

    Oh, final thing - I thought it was really interesting that for lots of of the cooking mini-games you could choose what utensil to use (chopsticks or whisk, short knife or longer knife, etc.).I always chose the utensil I was comfortable with in "real life", which - in hindsight seems a bit strange...
