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....

Re: No We Dare for North America

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

Andrew EisenWhen I write about these massacres, I don't use the shooter's name or picture. I'm not saying everyone has to play it that way but that's how I prefer to do it.10/25/2014 - 12:44am
Andrew EisenYep, it's why the news media stopped spotlighting numbnuts who run out on the field during sporting events.10/25/2014 - 12:01am
Matthew Wilsonin media research its called the copycat effect. it simply says that if the news covers one mass shooting shooter, it increases the likelihood of another person going on a mass shooting.10/25/2014 - 12:00am
Andrew EisenAgreed. It bugs me that I know the names, faces and personal histories of a bunch of mass shooters but I couldn't tell you the name of or recognize a photo of a single one of their victims.10/24/2014 - 11:51pm
AvalongodAgree with Quiknkold. @Mecha...if that worked we would have figured out how to prevent these long ago.10/24/2014 - 11:32pm
MechaCrashUnfortunately, you have to focus on the perpetrator to figure out the whys so you can try to prevent it from happening again.10/24/2014 - 10:55pm
quiknkoldpoor girl. poor victims. rather focus on them then the shooter. giving too much thought to the monster takes away from the victims.10/24/2014 - 10:15pm
Andrew EisenFor what it's worth, early reports are painting the motive as "he was pissed that a particular girl wouldn't date him."10/24/2014 - 10:12pm
quiknkoldwell then I suck as a man cause I ask for help when necessary :P10/24/2014 - 10:07pm
Technogeek(That said, mostly I was making the smartass evopsych comment because your post seemed like the kind of just-so story that has come to dominate 99% of its usage.)10/24/2014 - 10:04pm
TechnogeekHell, Liam Neeson built his modern career around it. Cultural factors likely play a far greater role than you appear willing to admit.10/24/2014 - 10:03pm
TechnogeekSeriously, though, the idea of "because women are protectors and that's why they never commit school shootings" is, at best, grossly overreductive. There's nothing inherently feminine about being willing to kill in order to protect one's offspring.10/24/2014 - 10:03pm
MechaCrashThe "toxic masculinity" thing refers to how you have to SUCK IT UP AND BE A MAN because seeking help is seen as weakness, which means you suck at manliness, so it builds and builds and builds until something finally snaps.10/24/2014 - 10:01pm
quiknkoldthere, I'm done. And thats what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown10/24/2014 - 9:54pm
quiknkoldand I am not spouting Evopsych, technogeek. tbh I never heard the phrase till you said it. I'm going off my observations.10/24/2014 - 9:54pm
quiknkoldmoreover, the guy who did this isnt even white. He was native american according to the news report I read. Also that he went for a specific target. That's a much different picture than a certain Sandy Hook guy who will not be named10/24/2014 - 9:53pm
quiknkoldbut I am also certain nobody in their right mind is committing these shootings singing the Machoman song. these are sick individuals who have given up on life10/24/2014 - 9:51pm
Technogeekevopsych lol10/24/2014 - 9:49pm
quiknkoldWhen you suffer from mental illness, youre more likely to go by instinct. yes. I came off as sexist.10/24/2014 - 9:46pm
quiknkoldmore on somthing they are fixated on. Post Partum Depression is an example. This is why a woman is less likely to go off on a rampage.10/24/2014 - 9:44pm
