Valve, you have to appeal to this and get it through australia, PLEASE! also clocks I bet.
They didn't reveal anything. :(
Can someone quote the article? I CS Nation won't load
wow porr guys
I just think it’s sick they'll allow Left 4 Dead 1, yet Left 4 Dead 2 is so unbelievably different it has to be banned.
''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
Shit, text got cut off. You got the idea anyway.
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! :(
How exactly is Left 4 Dead 2 worse than Left 4 Dead 1?
Wow, valve got pwned!!
Well, since Gabe and Erik are going to australia, they'll teach the government a lesson.
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.
Let's hope Left 4 Dead 2 will have oil instead of blood and springs and mechanisms as gibs in Australia.
Poland rocks because they dont care about gory games.
Won't they even allow the German version?
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?
They made the cover yellow for jarate.
What's the surprise...?
I'M GOING TO RATE YOU LATE ANYWAY
What a misleading title.
Totally thought they were revealing a surprise, not that they felt surprised.
Hey Aussies, come over to New Zealand for a vacation!
We got kiwis, iconic landscape, wait I'm forgetting something...
Oh thats right, L4D2 :biggrin:
Those are the main points they listed.
Wheres a edit?
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?
