"WTF" of the day: Wii sex game

Nintendo's popular party console simulates the ultimate party activity.

Well, I guess this was only a matter of time. A blogger at MTV brings us word of a new game for Nintendo's wildly popular Wii: a graphics-free sex game. No porny visuals, just porny noise. "Essentially, two players shake Wii remotes to orchestrate the pre-recorded sounds of two people who are in the midst of feeling very passionate about each other." This sounds like a game invented by college kids brainstorming around a giant bong, and perhaps it was. (The idea sprang from a convention in Copenhagen for "students and professionals.") According to the official site, the idea of the Dark Room game "was that a sex game would in fact be even more erotic if one stripped away all visuals and forced players to use their imaginations." Also cheaper and easier to make while baked off your gourd. Hey, this could be the party game of 2009. Or, you know, another waste of 50 bucks.
