My entire weekend, and possibly my outlook on life has been ruined, all thanks to Majesco and 505 games. From the same stable as Cooking Mama (which I actually enjoyed) and Gardening Mama (which I didn’tâ€¦at all) comes Wii-bound Babysitting Mama – a â€œgameâ€ for pre-pubescent girls in which a squishy plush baby acts as the peripheral.
There’s a host of fun babysitting activities – over 50, in fact – that are available to you once you’ve put the Wiimote inside the..wait..it goes where? Wiimoteâ€¦spine accessory? Gaaaargh. Unsurprisingly, it’s not the only baby game for the Wii – but at least this one is plush and doesn’t look like a soulless plastic creature that plans to eat me.
Babysitting Mama will be available in time for the holidays, and is expected to be a huge hit with little girls, and complete psychopaths.
