I'd like them to give it online co-op. Might consider going back to it then.

What was the Aussie's problem with this? Any details on the changes?
Just curious... :D

Our classification board has a bizarre issue with drugs being referred to by real names. Fun fact, Fallout 3 was initially refused classification simply because it included a painkiller called 'morphine'. Hence, "med-x" was born for all versions of the game.

That's interesting. I knew Oz had some pretty tough licensing for games but didn't realise it was quite that strict.

And hello to the other side of the world. Are you reading this upside down? :wink:

Their decisions are quite bizarre, sex and violence for the most part don't seem to bother them, but anything drug related or overly adolescent, hence Saints Row's ban, seem to be too 'dangerous' for the vulnerable public; even for 18+ year olds, which was only very recently added to the classification scheme. And don't be absurd, I've bolted the computer to the roof and am in my special southern hemisphere harness so I can read comfortably without fear of falling off the world.
