I'm betting it will be a big hit in Japan, but not so much Stateside, lol.  From EB games description:

Making special use of the Wii Remote, Cooking Mama: Cook Off is an entertaining blend of mashing, slicing, chopping and stirring as players create more than 300 real-world recipes from 10 different nations. New realistic graphics and real-time cooking effects lend authenticity to player creations and help budding chefs determine when food is overcooked. Best of all, Cooking Mama: Cook Off offers 2-player kitchen competitions to determine who can cook the best meal the fastest.


"real time cooking effects" - wtf would that be - your Wii starts to steam and smoke? stirthepot

Good God. icon_frown Roll Eyes Can we get some actual, you know, games, rather than junk like this?


I really think this type of game is what you will see with the wii.  They can't compete with the other consoles in terms of graphics so they will go with the quirky stuff.  It worked with the DS so who knows. If it gets good reviews, I may give it a rental.

I've had a couple of issues. I fell through a building and was stuck on the inside. The walls were invisible but I couldnt get out. I also jumped into a water area and fell through a dock. I was stuck underneath. Both times I had to quit the game and restart. On the bright side, I've had no invisible cars.  icon_biggrin

I think The Transporter and Xmen 3 are in the coupon book that came with the PS3. That should knock another $10.00 off the price.

My local Target here in Bloomington, Illinois had Sid Meirer's Pirates(PC version) for 9.98 and The Guild 2 for 14.98. Both were red tagged for clearance.

F1 for me. I love the sport but I'll probably stink at the game.

I ordered almost the exact same thing a few weeks ago. So far it has worked well and saved me a ton of money.

I didn't notice anything on wrong with the DVD version I rented from Blockbuster. I'll be upset if the BluRay version has issues after I read glowing review up it. I don't buy too many BluRay disc because of the cost and I'll be pissed if it sucks.
412  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Have you guys seen this? UFO: Extraterrestrials = X-COM next gen? on: February 20, 2007, 09:43:35 PM
Please let this game be good. I couldnt get into UFO Aftermath so I'm hoping for a winner here.

B17 was awesome in its time. I remember playing that one with my friend for hours. There was another game where you had to send out squadrons of space fighters to attack an alien force. You watched them intercept on a radar type screen and then fought out the combat. We loved that one as well. Oh, and there was a downhill ski game too. Fun times.
414  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: DVD Tuesday - 02/20/07 on: February 20, 2007, 06:17:00 PM
I'll rent The Prestige. If I like it, I'll probably pick it up on Bluray at some point. I read the transfer is really nice.  Babel may be added to the blockbuster list as well.
415  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Your chance to own an Adventurevision is HERE! on: February 20, 2007, 06:14:13 PM
Wow, I don't remember this one at all. I remember being jealous of my friend who had the Intellevison though.  icon_biggrin It seemed so much better than my 2600

I just want Worms to come out. My son will have a blast with it. He connects our old Dreamcast console to his TV in his room to play the Dreamcast version every so often.  Of course, I'll have to play it some as well.  icon_biggrin
417  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Network Content for 2/22 on: February 20, 2007, 06:08:35 PM
Nice to see Tekken on the way.  If I buy it, I won't be tempted to spend $60.00 on Virtua Fighter.  I suck so bad at these type of games but I'm drawn to purchase them. 
418  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Best Blu-Ray Transfer? on: February 20, 2007, 03:50:02 AM
I've heard Kingdom of Heaven is a good transfer. The Departed is supposed to be good as well. I'll have to post a review when I get it. It's in the mail.
419  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (2/19) on: February 19, 2007, 06:02:30 PM
Maybe UFO if it gets a good review somewhere.  I would get Virtua FIghter but I'm waiting on the F1 game for the PS3 next week.

The wife and I watched this over the weekend. We loved it. I thought it was an really great flick. Ive had Internal Affairs for a while now but never got around to watching it. I guess I should do so.

Best:  Judas Priest/Megadeath concert at Market Square Arena in Indy

Worst: Bon Jovi on the Slippery when wet tour. The sound was so bad that I couldnt tell the songs apart until the chorus.
422  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Getting a Wii what do I need on: February 10, 2007, 06:48:47 PM
I'd say component cables and a classic controller for sure. Maybe even another wii remote. We have two and my wife wants one now so we can all play Wii sports.

anybody who picks the colts is obviously incompetent and has most likely never watched a football game in their life.  in fact their preferred sport is probably ballet, and they are definitely poor lovers.  please post facts as to why this isnt true.

I want it, because it sounds great. The problem lies with my patience to learn new games is very low, and this game has a steep learning curve. Looking forward to some impressions though.

+1  This sounds like a game I would love. I love history. I love strategy/war games but for the life of me I've never been able to get into this series or any of its siblings such as Hearts of Iron or Victoria. I think I just get overwhelmed at the start and say screw it. Maybe some day I'll actually figure out how to play one of these.

I think this would be a big mistake for the Dems to nominate her. I just don't think she is capable of winning a general election.  I think she is more than capable of doing the job but she won't win. Obama would probably have a better chance.  Although, I'm still not sure what his accomplishments are and I'm living in Illinois.  He is intelligent and has a great positive image but it seems a little soon to be running for president. It is possible that his hype machine could burst like Howard Deans did. Just my two cents.........

432  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MotorStorm delayed until Spring on: January 20, 2007, 07:00:47 PM
I've played the demo quite a bit and it was acceptable to me. I enjoyed it quite a bit as did my son. Maybe, I'm easy to please. I also probably went into it with lower expectations than most. I hadn't read anything about it before trying the demo.  Right now, I'd buy it when released. Formula One should be good at holding me over until then.

NE@Indy

I'm hoping for an Indy win. I can't stand the Patriots. I think I've hated them ever since the Bears destroyed them in the Super Bowl. Plus, it would end the never ending discussion on Manning and Dungy winning the big one. I'm getting sick of that too.

NO@Chicago

I've liked Brees since his days at Purdue. I'm hoping for a NO win. I've never liked the Bears much but they were so bad for so long that it is hard to hate them.

I'm sure it will be New England and Chicago in the Super Bowl because that would be the only combination that I wouldn't have an ounce of interest in.  icon_biggrin

Ok... further impressions:

Blu Ray --  HOLY CRAP.   Why do these things COST so much?  $29.99 for a movie?   Methinks I'll be still buying DVD's for a while, in fact I did just last night.   I looked at the side by side Invinsible DVD and Blu-Ray discs, and I opted to save freakin 15 bucks.

Are there any plans to bring the cost of the Blu Rays down to at least the lower levels of the atmosphere?

Yeah, that is the bad part about Blu-Ray and HD-DVD....they both cost more than DVD right now. Although, if you buy them used, they are much cheaper. There is one place near me that has most new releases out used a day or two after the street date for both formats. They generally charge $12.99 for used Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. Needless to say, I go there quite a bit.  icon_biggrin

Also, as Gellar said, Netflix and Blockbuster are your other options.

My local Blockbuster doesn't have Blu Ray or HD DVD's.   In fact...they suck so bad they only have a tiny Xbox 360 section!    I couldn't believe it when I went in.   

My beef with Netflix/Blockbuster online is that they don't allow you to rent games.    If one of these services rented movies AND games and you could choose which one you wanted based on your mood, I'd sign up in a heartbeat.



I'm doint a trial of Blockbuster online right now. I signed up for the most part to rent Blu Ray movies. My local Blockbuster doesnt have them in store. It has some advantages. You can take the movies they ship to you back to the store and get another movie. They then mail them back for you and you next movie in your list ships. So you are never without a movie. Also you get a coupon for a free movie or game rental every month for the store. I used mine for a PS3 game. The downside is that most of the blu ray movies have a wait to get them. Im going to try it for a month and then make a decision. If netflix has less of a wait for blu ray, I may try them out.

Your router should have an IP address that you can enter into your browser of choice. It lets you access the settings for the router itself. It will bring up a page with the differnet settings. My page also has a help section that tells you what each setting does. I'm not sure if every router has the same address or not. I'm not too familiar with routers myself. I also had problems with the wireless settings on the wii. I changed my channel to 11 and it works fine now.

The F1 Demo is friggin great... it's been my favorite part of the system thus far.

Also, regarding download speeds... things were great about a month ago when all of the PS3s were on Ebay.  Now that people are actually using them, I guess Sony needs to up the bandwidth.

Nice to here the F1 game looks good. There hasn't been agood one for a while. I tried playing rFactor for the PC but loading all the mods and looking all over the place for the best ones was to big of a pain in the ass for a lazy man like me.
