A Spicy Evening with We Dare

February 25, 2011 -

Update: Ubisoft has blocked its own video in the United States on YouTube. Watching the video brings up the following copyright notice:

"We Dare - Have a spicy evening !"

This video contains content from Ubisoft, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.

Original Story: A promotional video for Ubisoft's decidedly adult Wii Party game, We Dare, will either make you cringe or laugh. Is the video some clever joke marketing or are these people serious? It's hard to tell..

This party game is supposed to be played with your "very attractive friends" and asks you to engage in some questionable behavior using the Wii Remote.

The mini-games will lead to some promiscuous behavior or a fistfight with a friend. To quote that classic comedy song, "Hands off my wife, the party's over."

Check out the video and see what all the fuss is about. On a related note, some smart ass has remixed the video Dead Island-style.

The Sun's puts it much more eloquently with:

A RAUNCHY game for the Nintendo Wii has outraged parents who say it promotes orgies and lesbian sex to kids as young as 12.

I would say all the more reason why distrobusion should not be the only benchmark to IP violations, but Youtube has ads,ect so it will be in the IP qugimire regardless if copy right was fixed or not.


I have a dream, break the chains of copy right oppression! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/cigital-disobedience/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Ubisoft, stop being such a wussy.

You know what the game amounts to?  Go to www.spencersonline.com , look under Fun & Games.  Or, better yet, go to a Spencers in a mall near you.  There's one in the mall near me.  I like going there from time to time to see the crazy little knick knacks they have.  Or the crazy adult games they have.

Any one of those games at Spencers could have had an ad like that one.  Stop crawling under a rock simply because you want to play adult games while you're an adult.  If anything, such games PROVE that console games aren't just for kids.  Don't let the lies and deceit of those who falsely claim that games are just for kids and that adult games are being marketed to kids drive you into a closet.  It's those who use such lies and deceit that should be ashamed.

I AM and adult.  I like playing adult games.  I've never been in the closet over it.  If they don't like it, I DON'T GIVE A SNOT!

Every day I hate Youtube more and more.  Seems like a solid 1/3 of all Youtube links I come across are dead for one reason or another.  Get some balls, Google, you're practically the god of the internet anyway.

As for the video itself (thanks airford), wow.  The Mii graphics and the subject matter have quite a gulf between them, making it seem inappropriate no matter how you look at it.  Also, parental code 6969?  Classy, Ubi.  Classy.

Though this apparently an... interesting game, I don't see the appeal since most of my multiplayer buddies wouldn't want their @$$ slapped, and the few that do...*shudders*

Re: A Spicy Evening with We Dare

In regards to the update:

Seriously? The press you were getting from us journalism was that humiliating that you had to ban it from all people in the US? The game idea is weird enough, but now you just pulled an EA.

NeenekoEven if they do change their policy, they can only do it moving forward and I could see the mod/pack community simply branching.09/15/2014 - 12:50pm

Michael ChandraMe, I'm more betting on some form of mod API where servers must run donations/payments through them and they take a cut.09/15/2014 - 10:32am
Michael ChandraEspecially since they want it for promoting their phones. Killing user interest is the dumbest move to make.09/15/2014 - 10:32am
Michael ChandraGiven how the EULA actively allows for LPs, I'm not sure Microsoft is ready for the backlash of disallowing that.09/15/2014 - 10:31am
Matthew Wilsonthey wont do that, the backlash would be too big.09/15/2014 - 10:25am
ConsterSleaker: how is that a flipside? Sounds to me like that's basically what Notch himself said, except rudely.09/15/2014 - 10:18am
MaskedPixelanteOn the plus side, no more lazy Minecraft LPs, since iirc Microsoft has a strict "no monetization period" policy when it comes to their stuff.09/15/2014 - 10:13am
james_fudgeBut it continues to sell on every platform it is on, so there's that09/15/2014 - 10:09am
james_fudgeOh, well that's another matter :)09/15/2014 - 10:08am
E. Zachary KnightNothing against Notch here. I think it is great that he made something so cool. I just can't understand how it is worth $2.5 bil09/15/2014 - 9:59am
InfophileWhat a world we live in: Becoming a billionaire was the easy way out for Notch.09/15/2014 - 9:42am
james_fudgelots of hate for Notch here. I don't get it. Sorry he made a game everyone loved. What a monster he is!09/15/2014 - 9:37am
SleakerOn the flipside, Notch has been a horrible CEO for Mojang, and the company has grown on sheer inertia, DESPITE being mishandled over and over.09/15/2014 - 9:33am
SleakerI can understand Notch's statements he made to Kotaku about growing bigger than he intended, and getting hate for EULA changes he didn't enact.09/15/2014 - 9:32am
MaskedPixelantehttp://pastebin.com/n1qTeikM Notch's statement about the MS acquisition. He wanted out for a long time and this was the easiest way.09/15/2014 - 9:08am
ConsterEh, I can't blame him.09/15/2014 - 9:01am
