After my initial post about it, were any of you chomping at the bit to pick up that "racy" new game called "We Dare?" I know I had to almost physically restrain my friend Raquel from standing in line for it when it comes out.
Sadly, it may not happen.
According to Games Radar, after the trailer was released, Ubisoft cancelled the game in the UK.
Apparently, there wasn't any problem with the 12+ age rating (and after reviewing it and thinking about it further, I can't totally disagree, as most of the "raciness" is in the minds of the players and what they do with the game). It was the trailer and the target market that caused the uproar.
Really? An uproar? I think we over here just rolled our collective eyes at it and said "this is stupid."
Is the US next? Should it be?
And should they be encouraged to cancel it by an outraged public? Or outraged investors who think that this is a waste of money and nobody will actually buy it?
For your viewing pleasure, here's the original trailer again (and I hope this actually remains available this time).
And make sure you check out the Games Radar page I linked to. It's hilariously cutting.
Also, according to Game Informer, Ubisoft has been banned from doing online ads for the game in Europe. The ads were called "misleading".
Curiouser and curiouser!
