    BioWare's Mass Effect game, which was banned in Singapore on Thursday is now resurrected. Instead of ban, the space adventure game Mass Effect will be sold with an M18 label, meaning it can't be bought by anybody under the age of 18. Mass Effect is the first video game to be given a rating in the country, and the move follows a public outcry over the ban.

    I havent read up on this game, but being a space game, it cant be all that bad. What is the major sticking point here to earn it such a rating?

    Yes AVP was sick, and fortunatley AVP II was not a let down.

    I'm always looking for people to play online with in AVPII; coop is awesome fun.
