It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Ubisoft's We Dare Too Sexy for United States
Have you heard about the latest big game coming to Wii and Playstation 3? It's not Zelda and it's definitely not Pokemon. It's We Dare published by Ubisoft, makers of the Just Dance franchise. But Ubisoft doesn't want you to know about its new title, and it's doing its best to hide the sexually-charged ad campaign from much of the gaming community.

We Dare isn't any ordinary game. While it seems to follow a familiar formula for Wii owners, focusing on motion-controlled mini-games, Dare takes those tasks and gives them a sexual twist. Players are encouraged to complete the games in suggestive positions to, if the ad campaign is any indication, prompt after-game activities.

Though the game features typical Mii-esque characters and colorful, non-explicit environments, the ad campaign has people talking. Several commercials released by Ubisoft were more than a little suggestive, featuring players laying on top of each other and sliding remotes down their pants to complete various tasks. Subsequent clips featured some players retiring from an evening of We Dare play for some shadowy "activity" behind a tinted window.

The whole affair, even the juvenile ads, seemed innocent enough, but it seems Ubisoft is shying away from the attention. The YouTube ads, once available globally, have been region-restricted, now only viewable in European markets. It certainly seems as though the publisher isn't quite pleased with the attention the game is receiving - even though the ad campain was clearly designed to generate some controversy. Even the title, We Dare, is begging for attention.

We contacted Ubisoft for comment about the situation, and the publisher had none, emphatically stating that the game would absolutely not see release in the United States. Seems like you'll have to head to Europe for your Wii and PS3 fun.


Anyone gonna buy it?

That's so funny. Are we at the point in our civilization where we need video game foreplay?

This may go RSP very quickly.

I'm actually a little surprised its taken this long for this kind of thing to make it to the mainstream markets.

Its either due to the sexualization of everything or its indicative of how much video games have made it to the mainstream cultures. My money's on the latter, since the former has been going on since time immemorial. .

Are you guys serious? So we're all okay with little girls turning into zombies and having to be killed by their fathers, but the sexy game is either silly or too much? Pah-lease.


Oh, and I'd play it ...with your mom!
