Has anyone out there played this game yet? OMG! If you haven’t started, don’t - you’ll get hooked!
I’ve never really been a video game playing girl but it all changed when DH gave me a Nintendo DS Lite for Christmas complete with Brain Age 2. After playing it for a while, I gave up because apparently my brain’s age is 84. Hah! I don’t need a piece of plastic insulting my intelligence.
Then a friend of mine told me about Cake Mania. Like the name suggests, you bake and prepare cakes for customers in various settings. It’s not as easy as it sounds because each person has a different patience and generosity (as in tips) level. It gets complicated when the bakery is full of people demanding their orders. Talk about multi-tasking at it’s best! My favorite part is when you’re able to shop for upgrades to your bakery. Gee, why are you not surprised, huh?
Then along came Sally’s Salon. The downside to this game is that it’s not available for the DS Lite. You have to download and play it on your computer. And we all know that the last thing I need is another reason to be on my laptop. At least with the DS, I can play it when I have some down time at work or anywhere else.
Anyway, I downloaded the free 1 hour trial version just to see what it was all about. When my time was up, I refused to hit the “purchase to continue” button because it’s just another game. At least that’s what I tried to convince myself of. Well, I’m ashamed to say I lasted only 24 hours. Today I purchased the license for $19.99 and I’ve been dyeing, cutting, and styling hair ever since.
How sad, huh? So, if you find that my blogging is starting to dwindle down, you’ll know why. I’m hooked on Sally’s Salon.
Do you play video games? Which one is your favorite?
*Note: This is not a paid post. I wish it were so I could have gotten the download for free.
Update: Thank you to Cathi for letting me know that this post wasn’t accepting comments. It’s been fixed now!
