    Can someone quote the article? I CS Nation won't load :saddowns:
    Valve's Vice President of Marketing Doug Lombardi has responded to the news that Left 4 Dead 2 is banned in Australia in its current form. Speaking to Shacknews, Lombardi is quoted as saying:

    ''We were surprised to hear of this news yesterday. Obviously, everyone at Valve is pretty bummed. It would be a shame if folks in Australia, or anywhere else, are unable to purchase Left 4 Dead 2 because of a ratings issue''

    The news of the Australian Government Classification Board's decision comes after the lack of an 18+ age rating for games in the country. A problem that has hit the likes of the Grand Theft Auto series, Duke Nukem 3D and 50 Cent: Bulletproof in the past leading to calls for a new higher age r

    I'm still suprised L4D got banned. I mean it's no where near as 'bad'(you can say i guess) as lets say GTA IV where you can be fucking girls, doing drugs, etc. In L4D your just trying to live by killing zombies! :(

    But you don't do drugs in GTA IV and all sex happens off camera and only lasts about 10 seconds.

    There are plenty of games unbanned with melee weapons though. Grand Theft Auto IV has bats and knives. Every Hitman game in existence has endless amounts of weapons, from knives, bats, fiber wire, explosives and butcher knives. They're freely available.

    I think it's fairly obvious the Australian Classification board is just out of touch with reality. Especially when it comes to film and television, the classification system in Australia seems to be fairly liberal and laid back.

    It's because when you kill an infected with an axe, their guts fall out, you can see their spine, and tonnes of blood goes on the screen. This would usually be an 18+ game but the dumbfuckingretartedstupidaustralianfuckingshitcunt asshole OFLC doesn't have an R18+ rating for games.

    if valve has any sense they'll put a hidden cvar in to re-enable this light gore shit, give it to the OFLC with the cvar off and then tell the community lolololol

    dude, they[valve] have to give the OFLC the version they will ship in the stores over here, so that doesn't work

    no seriously we need to either A) dissolve the board or B) reform it

    shit is fucking ridiculous, average gamer over here is over 25 so why don't we have an R18?

    Valve's content is barely PG-13. Oh baaaaaw, I can see zombie guts everywhere.

    What, have the governmental officials in Australia never seen a zombie movie?
