BLAST!

i never played L4D1 but the more games our government starts banning... well... ban a few, it steamrolls into hundreds... sigh

strangely enough... we refuse classification to these games, but then have some of the world's loosest laws on prostitution... seems like a bit of a double standard[/quote

pollies dont play games mate but i guess they unwind some other way ;-)

Awh, now Yahtzee won't be able to play L4D2 =l
Don't underestimate him...He got an import copy of Manhunt and Silent Hill Homecoming, remember?

I want to know when Australia is going to ditch Michael Atkinson and get a mature rating like every other country except Singapore

Please read up on why this is happening before you post more uninformed comments and make an ass out of yourself.

For most of us, it is impossible to do anything about this issue. What Michael Atkinson is doing is completely undemocratic, and no one supports him.

So can australians buy alcohol or tobacco either?? Australia seems to still be a prison colony. Fun = banned in Australia.

The fact you will be able to download the game directly off Steam side steps the whole banning issue. And for fucks sake could we have some common sense from our political leaders?

Man, it's like Germany and Australia are in this constant struggle to outdo each other in making gamers miserable.
Who wins that struggle is somewhat dependant on what happens over here in the future. Thumbscrews on gaming have continually been getting tightened with every depressed gaming dolt who decided it'd be the most glorious way to delete oneself from existence via a shotgun massacre at their school... I feel we're just one or two more of these incidents away from gaming itself being outlawed here in Germany. :(

They'll let a film like Irreversible get through, has a 10 minute rape scene but L4D2 is too imbued with violence that its not allowed.

Ridiculous.
