I was looking forward to playing the new SOF, which I picked up today after finally being released in Australia. I had played the previous ones which were full of violence and fun dismemberment so I know what I had to look forward too. Anyway I load it up, and open fire on a bunch of terrorist.

Nothing happens, not even a hit of blood. I thought to myself, okay thats odd maybe I didn't hit them right. So next group of enemies I see I lob a heap of grenades into them and again nothing happens, I go up and look around. There isn't even a hint of blood anywhere.

So now I am getting ticked off, so I look it up on the net and find out to my disgust that the Australian Govt. has banned it. Then it has come back with no dismemberment, no blood splatter, a reduced ragdoll engine and greatly reduced blood spray. This time it is accepted.

Seriously what the fuck? I mean, they haven't even changed the box art which warns about violence that only those with a strong stomach can view. WHAT FUCKING VIOLENCE, YOU SEE MORE FUCKING BLOOD IN A NOSE BLEED THEN THE ENTIRE GAME. I mean for fucks sake that was the only thing going for it. And now because of the reduced ragdoll engine the enemies die in a total of 5 whopping positions.

This "censoring" is going way to fuc[size=2]king far, thing is that the Australia Govt. refuses to create a M17+ or R18+ Rating, because they think that all games are sweaty little 12 years olds who might be exposed to something they shouldn't be. I mean on XBL about 90% of my friends are over 18.

ARRRRRGHHH

Pay a hobo to buy it.

VG Ratings are no big deal.

Ever.

They're just wannabe Movie raters who have way less effect on society.

Isn't that technically infringing on your personal rights for a government to say what you can and can not see in a videogame?

That's what the rating system is for.

That's what the rating system is for.

No, it just warns and limits children (children are not as open to freedom as adults ya know) about it's content. They can have an adult buy it if it's so bad. That's like saying the government has censorship issues due to R rated movies.

But the government forced them to remove content in order for it to be accepted.

I mean whadufux.

They can't just slap a, "Really uber violent" tag on it and call it a day.

CEREALMANZ NOW EVERYONE KNOWS YOUR SECRET.
