seems that Australians dont like running around with pink dildos :)...

on serious note, it is sad that some people still must live in communism and suffer some dumb limitations, just because some idiot thinks so... epic fail.

We don't live in communism... Australia as a whole just isn't a big embracer of games. Which is weird, because our indie scene is really active. The creators of Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride are here.

A friend put it perfectly a few years ago:
"Australian culture doesn't give a crap about anything unrelated to sports or beer."

the "communism thing" was sort of a joke.. we all know its not like that.. but still.. it works kinda same...

looks like i'm importing it then

That's a shame. If gaming gets banned in Australia at the near future I won't be surprised about it at all.

Stupid. If they can do it in movies and TV shows, why not games? And what's the point of an R18+ rating if stuff is still getting censored?

That's not cool. I feel bad for our Australian brethren. Don't they have an 18 rating now? What's the point of having if it you aren't going to use it? Your (Australians, specifically) government is making decisions for competent 18 year-olds. What kind of fuckery is that? Kind of reminds me of some of the nanny states that try to ban or tax video games here in the US.

What's up with you guys and drug use? As if it doesn't happen. Everywhere.

Drug use...baaad. Gun and Violence, meh.
