What the hell is up with the people in the Australian Classification Review Board? I can't imagine the average Joe over there being that uptight, perhaps Rupert Murdoch is the one who placed the stick up the Board's ass.

More like what is up with South Australian attorney generals. The previous South Australian attorney generp is largely the reason an R18+ rating took so many years to get implemented in Australia. Now the current attorney General wants games previously classified as M15+ changed to R18+. I though the legislation stated that games couldn't be reclassified.

In my opinion the Australian R18+ classic action is still to restrictive. It's tricky though, on one hand I agree that games with sexual violence (rape games) should be banned however I don't feel the anal probe in Saints Row IV warranted a ban. Nor do I feel drug use related to insentives war rents a ban, because the last thing I want during a zombie apocalypse is ibuprofen or codien (State of Decay), no I want supplements like vitamin C!
