No We Dare for North America

February 28, 2011 -

Ubisoft has confirmed that We Dare is a European only release. The saucy, adult themed Wii game that challenges couples to engage is some risqué behavior to score points and "get a little closer" is apparently too hot for U.S. gamers.

While the reaction to the We Dare commercial was mostly disbelief, it would be hard to say that journalists on this side of the pond found it to be offensive - silly, and a little too suggestive for our taste, maybe - but inappropriate for America? No way. If we can have Dennis Franz showing his big ass on TV, we can handle a couple taking turns spanking each other in a commercial.

Ubisoft must have felt some embarrassment at the trailer being so widely noticed online and ended up yanking it off YouTube under the guise of a regional copyright issue. In other words, it contacted YouTube to violate itself. Strange.

Ubisoft told IGN that We Dare would "absolutely not see release in the United States."

Those of you looking to watch your friend’s wife spank your wife or girlfriend will have to find another inventive way to make it happen. Sorry guys.

"In other words, it contacted YouTube to violate itself."

I see what you did there.

Re: No We Dare for North America

Is it because it's "inappropriate", or because they figured it wouldn't sell?

Re: No We Dare for North America

Guessing its cause America finds sex to be taboo and uncomfotable to talk about. Blame the Puritans.

Re: No We Dare for North America

The puritans, we got them because Europe couldn't stand them.

Re: No We Dare for North America

I don't mind We Dare not coming to America, it seemed like a stupid game anyways.

Re: No We Dare for North America

Agreed. I mean, the thing looks like something out of a saturday night live skit.

Re: No We Dare for North America

The most it could do is entice people to import the game and/or (unfortunately) cause the watchdogs to dog us even more.

 

Though, I don't think people have STOPPED importing IIDX even after its final home release (Empress) and that game is a nintendo hard music game (mostly delves into Note Hells with some of the Another charts and the Black Another difficulty, though some songs delve into speed change hell, like Fascination MaxX, though they made it follow the DDR BPMs)

Re: No We Dare for North America

Eh, the meatspace games for such things are more fun anyway...

Though I find it amusing.. just like the swinger community.. 'oh no! can't have the guys interacting!'... though I am impressed they had a guy bottoming and males stripping.  Wouldn't have seen that a few years ago.

 

Meh, I will save the rest of this post for a differnt game forum....

Re: No We Dare for North America

You have experience with the swinger community?

Something you want to tell us? :)

Re: No We Dare for North America

Actually, the swinger community was never my cup of tea (but I interact with people who left it).. too homophobic and VERY vanilla... it had the feel of a bunch of frat boys and sorority girls trying to recapture their hedonistic youth while maintaining otherwise very white bread lives... mind numbingly dull scripted sex.... (since you did not have time to learn individuals, you had to stick to safe/acceptable patterns).

I much prefer the poly community......

Re: No We Dare for North America

I'd rather not ask. The less I know, the happier I am.

Re: No We Dare for North America

I'll import from Canada. That is if it gets there as well. Game from the UK doesn't carry it from what I see :( 

Re: No We Dare for North America

The story says Europe only, and you're going to import it from Canada? 

Re: No We Dare for North America

Well, to be fair, the ad wasn't censured here and Ubisoft has a big studio in Montréal. We just might see it here still.

Re: No We Dare for North America

Making a statement or is this something you actually want to play?

Re: No We Dare for North America

Actually, I might import a copy.... games with a physical component can be a good mixer....

Assassin's Creed games have you stabbing people left and right, but this makes them squeamish? Wusses.
