A friend of mine from graduate school is visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday. For our evening meals, I’ve decided to use Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What to Eat? to help me. Tonight’s meal was Spaghetti Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino, which is described as “a simple spaghetti dish made with garlic, red chillies, and olive oil.” We combined this with a salad and it made for a light, but filling meal.
The verdict: “Mm, good!”
Earlier this week, Nintendo thoughtfully sent me an email informing me that the North American version of Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What to Eat? would be released on 24 November. Nintendo changed the title to Personal Trainer: Cooking. I had a look around the official site, and from the videos and screen shots, the game seems pretty much the same, apart from regional differences, such as an American interactive chef replacing the British one from Cooking Guide.
If you’re a North American reader who’s been following my culinary attempts, and are curious about this game, but didn’t want to import it like I did, you should definitely check out Personal Trainer: Cooking. At this very moment, Personal Trainer: Cooking is on sale at Amazon.com. The regular price is $19.99 and it’s marked down to only $9.95 $4.95.
On a sidenote, has anyone seen Nintendo’s Amazon.com-powered hub for buying Nintendo DS games online? It’s part of their “I Play For Me” website, targeted to non-gamers and women, judging from the photos on the web page.
