tldr; L4D2 Banned in Oz, Fuck you Michael Atkinson.

So it would seem the good ole OFLC has decided that L4D2 has too much "high impact vioilence" for an M15+ rating and so thanks to the wonderful Michael Atkinson the game has been refused classification. AKA Banned.

See here for original story

See here for explanation why it has been RC'ed


I realise this is a temporary thing and that i'm sure Valve and EA will get around it, but if they end up compromising with a modified version to what the rest of the world is using then i will be mightily pissed.

Um, there is another way around this.

1 Download game via torrents.
2.Get a cd key from people selling them online.
3.Enjoy knowing how useless that ban is.

The problem with that method is the game requires Steam. I would imagine that Steam would restrict the ability to play it for those of us in Aus.

I like how there is no difference between MA15+ and R18+ in terms of "SORRY LITTLE BILLY, YOU CAN'T FUCKING BUY THIS", yet they argue that to have an R18 would mean kids would somehow be more exposed to violence and sexytime.

And they can't use the dumb parents excuse now that they got the ACMA to colour code the shit.

I hope Valve calls out the OFLC on this one.

This is the same organisation that thinks you can filter the Innernets, and blocking a mere 1300 websites is enough.

Which Bruce?


You do realise that is the name of every white male born in Australia right?

You fail to realise the issue.

So it would just reject the game or something? Weird.

I wonder if they could release it as pay to play content for the already existing game for those users. I mean, wouldn't help if you didn't have L4D1, but whatever.

I do not understand why they think banning games will stop people from committing crimes or turning out crazy mother fuckers. Retard theory is retarded.

It's a single dickhead from South Australia who has caused this. Go figure.

Despite public outcry against his decisions and everybody else on the board disagreeing with him, he still maintains that games shouldn't get an R18 rating.

Oh btw for you Aus folk. I'm afraid that the appeal didn't go through. You'll be getting an edited version of the game.

What will it be... no swearing, no blood, no dismemberment, rubber rounds and cuddles instead of punches. You know those zombies need loving.
