Bully for the PS2, Cooking Mama for DS, future games for PS3.

So the time has come for another update. For those of you who aren't dead, here are some games to look out for:

Bully for Playstation 2: (In stores now.) Play as Jimmy Hopkins, a young malcontent attempting to find his way at his new school, Bullworth Academy. The decision is yours: Will you help the bullies, preps, jocks, nerds, or solely yourself? Will you focus on getting girls, skipping school and avoiding the prefects, or causing schoolwide mischief? It might sound stupid to some of you, but remember that this is in the irreverent tradition of the "Brat Pack" movies of the 80's. It doesn't take itself very seriously. The gameplay is amazing, it's actually a polished "GTA: San Andreas" engine. There are tons of possibilities in this new game by Rockstar, but it's only for the PS2 so if you don't have one, you're out of luck.

Cooking Mama for Nintendo DS: (In stores now.) I have seen this game described many ways, but my favorite is "Martha Stewart meets Warioware Touched". Unfortunately, the reviews I've read aren't the best due to some actions not being recognized by the game and the scoring too consistent; one small error counts just as much as a large one. However, it has also been noted that it has it's fun aspects and you won't be disappointed as long as you don't expect too much. I guess that's all we can reasonably ask from a game that basically makes you do the same thing over and over. :\ It's cute, if that affects your decision to buy it. Expect to see this title on the Nintendo Wii in February 2007.
