Baby and Me Special Edition Includes a Baby

image

Some special editions come with figurines, limited edition art books, or soundtrack CDs. This one comes with a baby.

With special editions now being the norm rather than the exception, they were bound to seep into family game territory someday. That day has arrived, and it's more terrifying than anyone could have imagined. 505 Games' Baby and Me Special Edition will come with an actual baby doll to attach a Wii remote to, which will make the doll seem to come alive through the controller's speaker. Unfortunately, only Australians will get to experience the horror, with the game planned for release down under but in no other regions.

Baby and Me's regular edition will still come with a strap that can be used to hook the remote to other inanimate objects, such as baby-shaped logs, dead animals, or pictures of loved ones. According to Aussie Nintendo, here are the game's features:

Your baby reacts by giggling, gurgling or crying through the Wii remote
Ten Baby Mode games including feed baby & send baby to sleep
Eight Play Mode games including rattle, catch, clap & balloons
Balance Board support: rock baby to sleep, burp baby, teach baby to walk
Customize baby with new clothes, accessories and playrooms

This game sounds really exciting, especially how you can "send baby to sleep" and play "clap." When you're using the Wii Balance Board to burp a baby, I think that's the sign that you've lost your soul. Supposedly, you can also neglect your baby and have it grow up to be a subway janitor, but only if you have the Wii MotionPlus attached. So much for hoping that all of these baby games would go away; they're only getting stronger.

I can see nothing but an understandable negative reaction to this.

The worlds gone mad. Into the bunker.

I want a "blow baby to hell" option, which includes blowing up the Wii. That would be two birds with one rock.

....

only worse thing then this is those fake boobs you got from that jap porn game.

That's it, I officially give up trying to convince myself the Wii is worth a damn.

What?
Well, at least it dosent pee, i hated it when my sisters got a doll that did.
Nasty.

Insert dead baby joke.

Just one question. Where exactly do you put the mote in the baby?

Probably best not to dwell on that thought. Or any thought related to this monstrosity.

That is completely creepy and in bad taste...

Anyone for dead baby pizza?

And once again, Australia is regarded as the "country too dumb to not buy such epic crap" by the games industry. "Why would we try to sell it somewhere else, when Australia pretty much laps this junk up by the bucketload?" says Nintendo. Only problem is, Australians do. Well, Australian mothers do, at any rate, for their demon offspring to swoon over. Blech.

How long will it take before this game creates a whole generation people who will cause shaken baby syndrome?

good god! What will be next!

I just had to say, your avatar is so fitting for this story.

Am I the only one who wishes they thought of this for the "Assassins Creed 2: Special Edition"?

To have been given the option to purchase a baby Assassin...with middle finger blade and booties...it would have been hilarious...

Two questions:

Why did I not see this coming?

Am I the only one who thinks this will be used for nothing but extreme unethical evil?

*shudder*

...Ew. Eww. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

I wonder how long it will take for the complaints that it is teaching the children to shake their babies?

God forbid the parents actually spend any time teaching their little womb excretions any morals themselves.

Oh my god. OH MY GOD!

How do you attach the baby to the controller? O_O

To answer you both, Ever had a rectal exam? If yes, then you got the idea.

Pre-ordered.

Oz only? Damn! Pre-ordered anyway, thank god for imports!

Huh. Didn't know GTAIV's babies-overnight.com sold video games too, now.

OH NO! A game aimed at young girls based around the idea that young girls like to play with baby dolls. Clearly everyone who buys this is a slave to consumerism and are of lesser intelligence than the lowliest member of these forums. You know what, how dare a game be made for anyone below the age of 10 or whatever, fuck them, they aren't hardcore enough to play videogames, gaming is for mature adults.

Evidently this game cancels out all the good games on the Wii proving that it is a horrible console with no merit whatsoever...

Oh wait I'm sorry, I must have forgotten to switch off the ignorant wanker translator when I started typing this.

"How long does it take to paint a house with a dead baby?

Depends on how hard you throw it."

Ba dum tsh.

Seriously. Who approved this? Someone, somewhere, decided that THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA. Why has this person not been brought to trial for crimes against humanity? Where's Batman when we need him?

I feel putting any of the comments that are in my head right now onto this thread would result in a ban for me...

Thats not a good thought you put in my head.

Why are people bitching

Seems like a good deal for parents. A new game and a new doll. Two Birds with one stone

Yeah, I don't get all the complaining either.

"Oh my Cthulhu, a children's game comes with a children's toy! BETTER MAKE A TASTELESS JOKE!"

Guys, it's a game for little girls (or, y'know, boys too). You're not cooler for loathing it. The game industry isn't going to change to baby-only games overnight.

Kyle: Kick the baby.
Ike: Don't kick the baby.
Kyle: Kick the baby! *kicks*

That's the first thing that came to mind.
Other than that, who cares if developers make games for little kids - let them have their fun too.

Um, this is disturbing:

WHERE THE HELL DO YOU STICK THE REMOTE?!

probably in the baby's ass

That's just not right.

This is a kid's game, packaged with a kid's toy. Big whoop, we all knew the Wii was a family system. Why not let your kid sis have a little fun with it?

Wake me up when THIS game comes out:
