Warner Bros. hands a rose to The Bachelor videogame

4:00 PM on 07.29.2009 // Chad Concelmo

Yup, this is happening.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Ludia announced today that they will be creating videogames based on the hit reality shows The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. According to the press release, the games will be released in 2010 to coincide with the conclusion of the 14th season of The Bachelor.

No other details of the games are known, but, honestly, let me say what we obviously all are thinking: THESE ARE GOING TO BE THE GREATEST VIDEOGAMES EVER CREATED! Actually, no, sorry. What I am really thinking is: How are these games going to work exactly? The Bachelor is about a guy picking a mate amongst a sea of 25 women. And it’s a reality show. There really isn’t any “gaming” on the show to speak of. How is this going to be turned into an interesting videogame? Press “A” to reject woman #6! Tap the “R Trigger” to feel up woman #2! Actually, this could be awesome.

Please speculate in the comments. What kind of videogames could The Bachelor and The Bachelorette possibly be? If they end up being bullet hell shmups or epic RPGs I am in support of this deal 100%.

Hit the jump for the full press release.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.
