Good maybe we may finally see uncut games for a change even though it still needs the support the countries attorney generals.
Also wishful thinking for stopping teenagers from getting the games lol.
most teenagers already know they can downloadz from the interwebz, just because mummy n daddy stop them from buying the game in the shop, doesnt mean there isnt an alternative way of getting what they want
This is an absolutely brilliant move, Now Australians will finally see games through retail channels that have otherwise been banned due to being inappropriate for 15 year olds to play.
even our steam wasnt safe we got a neutered l4d2 off Australian steam because of our inadequate rating system...you could still get the uncut if your foreign friends gifted it though
Exactly its been a tradition of teenagers for decades.
I agree we were becoming an apsolute laughing stock to the rest of the western world. Nice to see its finally being accepted that the average gamer aint kids there adults.
WIN!!! I cannot express my happiness through this post!!! My worries for Dead Space 2 are gone !!
the only problem is that they wont retroactively unban games... so anything previously banned for being too mature for a 16 year old, still wont be allowed.
i just hope valve uncensors L4D2 for us
Yeah but future games wont be torn to shreds though.
I love aussie but FFS we must be one of the most over regulated countries in the world... we have regulations for everything here, its crazy!!
Bloody ranga priminister!!
all this crap was around before the ranga, cant blame her for it. things are finally going good now that we have her in charge. R18 ratings, NBN... ummm... some other stuff.
yay, i'm happy for you guys,
That's true, but the only games I know of/remember being banned due to this are so old I wouldn't even bother putting them on my main rig :/ (thinking Manhunt here)
And yeah, L4D2 with gore is amazingly better than L4D2 without.
QFT. The games won't be torn to shreads, our ingame enemies will be instead!
this is great news, no censoring games to meet the 15 age rating, and no banned games from other countries
I'm glad to see this, i know it does not effect me but i always thought it was unfair on australians and almost made it seam like the ratings in australia suggested that games are for kids and teenagers only.
It's a shame that old games that got a ban won't be unbanned and given the rating though.
About F in time
Yay, now you Aussies will see actual blood and not confetti lol
WHAT!!?! Now i needa send my dad in to buy the games for me :L.
LOL! Unlucky haha. Just wait it out, those years go quuiiiickk..
That made me think though, how are services like Steam and Impulse going to regulate this? I'm guessing not at all since everyone else has had R18+ since forever and nothing seems to have been done for it.
your suffering gets me gore in my games. take one for the team.
oh noez, no more of teh mic spamming for meez on cod :L. Lol jks i don't do that
I thought it was tomatoe sauce.
nah its BBQ sauce, at least in that wii game (forgot name, has a wannabe lightsaber in it)
Dont even get me started on Micspam... I had a hard enough job trying NOT to do it in TF2
but I digress -- i had a nice mix - pavarotti, Beastyboys, Tom Jones, Cotton Eye Joe, Trashmen (bird is the word), engelbert humperdinck, rick roll, daftpunk and some songs off the team america soundtrack (every has aids --etc etc) got loads more but these are the ones i would spam the most
Excellent news! It's about time that there is an adult rating in Australia.
Indeed we have only been waiting for years on end.
