Last night, I excitedly installed the pre-release of the new Cooking Dash 3 Thrills and Spills. I’ve played a few casual games in my time, but haven’t delved into them lately. If you have played previous Diner Dash games, you will remember Flo & her Grandma as the main characters. They are back again, yet this time Flo and her friends are teenagers.
I purchased the Nintendo DS version of Cooking Mama in hopes my 4 year old wannabe Rachel Ray would entertain herself for at least 30 minutes. Instead of hammering in my fridge or breaking eggs in her miniature fantasy kitchen she could crack a few with the DS wand right? Wrong. Either her age or impatient temperament was a factor in their disagreement. Instead of freeing up some of my MUCH needed and desired relaxation time, I listened to cries and whines about how "Mama can’t do it…" or "I can’t do this!"
