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.

ZenUm Masked...I have been playing the Sega VC games on the Wii U since the day it launched...what are you talking about? This just means they, sadly, won't do Wii U specific versions...but they are all still there and completely playable.07/13/2014 - 1:28am
Andrew EisenThanks to those who joined us for the live recording of the podcast. I'm working on ironing out the tech issues so next week's show should be even better! If you missed it, we'll have a recording on YouTube later. Possibly even an audio-only version.07/13/2014 - 12:38am
Matthew WilsonI hope after this genaration everything is backwards compatible becouse everything is now x86 architecture. with the exception of Nintendo of course .07/12/2014 - 10:54pm
Andrew EisenWhy do you hope we didn't buy any? They're still available on the Wii VC, which is accessible from the Wii U.07/12/2014 - 10:48pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/07/12/segas-plans-for-wii-u-virtual-console-are-non-existent/ Hope you didn't buy any Sega games off the original VC, since Sega has no plans on bringing them to the Wii U Virtual Console.07/12/2014 - 5:39pm
MechaTama31I think there are a significant number of jobs people will do for food that they will not do for an ipad.07/12/2014 - 8:39am
Infophilelabour (primarily among mothers and teens) and some show increased labour. Maybe it's a cultural thing in play that results in different outcomes in different societies.07/12/2014 - 6:53am
InfophileYou also need to take into account just how crappy it would be to only have the basics to live. But with competing forces at play like this, it's impossible to argue to an answer. We have to look to tests of it, and results are mixed. Some show decreased07/12/2014 - 6:51am

MechaTama31Info, I think you don't really understand just how crappy a lot of the jobs are that provide the "basics" that you assume will just continue to be produced under such a system. There's very little pride or prestige to be had from such jobs, but they need07/11/2014 - 5:40pm
Andrew EisenMaskedPixelante - That's probably because it's now available on the Wii U eShop for $8.07/11/2014 - 5:18pm
InfophileThat's not how human psychology works. It's all about "Keeping up with the Joneses." When everyone around you has a new fancy smartphone and is talking about that cool HBO series, do you want to be the one left out?07/11/2014 - 4:05pm
Matthew WilsonThe issue is most people would settle for the basics and not work. That is why we would need very heavy automation to make a system like that work. Almost all labor intensive tasks would have to be done by robot.07/11/2014 - 2:32pm
InfophileOf course, that's a gross oversimplification. The idea, have a basic safety net that pays for what's needed to live. If people can find a job and are willing to work, they get more money which can be spent on comfort and perks.07/11/2014 - 11:33am
InfophileIt's quite possible to get an economy to work with a basic minimum standard of living. You just need perks for the people who do work. Everyone gets food and a home. Everyone who works also gets an iPhone.07/11/2014 - 11:32am
