All About robertwarnes91
My name is Robert. I'm all about wasting money at restaurants, buying clothes I never wear and of course playing video games.
23Feb 13What seemed like the impossible will soon become a reality. But all states in Australia, including Queensland now has an R18+ rating for games. No longer shall we be the laughing stock of uneducated American journalists, saying stupid things like "Australia is a Nanny state owned by reglious nuts". Despite the fact the Australian Catholic Church approves of the R18+ classification and Australia gave you really dark films like Mad Max. Wolf Creek and Romper Stomper. Plus let's not forget Australia seems to only ban one game a year, while countries in Europe and Asia, most notably Germany and Japan ban dozens of games every year. But Americans never seem to pick on them.
To celebrate the introduction of the R18+ rating and the ignorance of American journalists. I thought it might be fun to remind American gamers and journalists that Americans love to ban and censor games as well. More specifically ones that were released in Australia uncut with no edits.
NO LIGHT GUN SUPPORT IN RESIDENT EVIL SURVIVOR AND NO SURVIVOR 2 ALTOGETHER
A mass shooting seems to happen every week in America and most of the time its over trivial matters, like someone eating their popcorn too loud. But because gun lobbyists have a strong presence in Washington and a suitcase full of bribe money. No one ever acknowledges that poor gun control laws are to blame, making violent videos games the scapegoat. This forced Capcom to remove lightgun support from 2000's Resident Evil Survivor. A feature that was present and correct in the uncut Australian version.
But it didn't end there, when it came time for Resident Evil Survivor 2 to be released on the PS2. Capcom made the decision not to release the sequel in the USA altogether. While Australians were allowed to legally buy an unedited version at every good video games store.
NO SEXYTIME IN FAHRENHEIT
While Americans loves to slap an R rating on any film or TV show that contains just one second of brief nudity, they seem to be very casual about sexytime in gaming.
But the overly suggestive controller inputs for Fahrenheit's sex scenes were just to much for our ABBA-hating neighbours. So Atari decided to cut them from the USA version, with the exception of an Adults Only PC version available exclusively on the internet (so the internet really is for porn). Of course in foster drinking Australia, no version of Fahrenheit skipped a sex scene. Just admit it Robert, you brought Fahrenheit not for the amazing storyline that simulates the emotional trauma of taking someone's life. But for the sex and nudity.
THAT 2mm OF THIGH WILL CORRUPT OUR CHILDREN!!!!
I've saved the best for last and that's the controversial (and very comical) thigh that was on the boxart of Dead or Alive Dimensions. What can I say? We Aussies love our thighs. But America's classification board had a problem with it and asked Tecmo to cover 2mm of thigh to protect the innocent.
Tomorrow Sony will be holding an event called "Playstation Meeting" to showcase the future of their brand. While Sony hasn't exactly told us the Playstation 4 will be present at this event, gamers and journalists have already jumped to the conclusion it will be there. It shall be there. It must be there.
So it comes at no surprise, the media is taking advantage of this thirst for PS4 information and posting articles fiilled purely with speculation to win readers and please their sponsors. Although I'm surprised that none of these gaming commentators haven't hit on the one thing that is constant with all new Playstation hardware. Do you know what it is? No? Ok, which game is available at the launch of every new Playstation console, both home and handheld? Why, it's RIIIDDDDGGGEEEE RAAAAACCCEERR!!!
About a month ago, some Chinese ebay seller named "strong-yong" began to sell Playstation Vita Bundles with a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified and a 4GB memory stick for $38.99US. It was clearly a scam, even the seller wrote the item location as "Gibberish, China". Unfortunately thousands of people bought the bundle and fell for this obvious scam. But the best part of this saga, is the seller actually still sent something in the post. A coin no less, which is showcased by an Australian youtuber (who is not me) in this video.
Fortunately Ebay has shut down the seller and people are getting their money back. I hope this article will teach people not to fall for these scams and always buy their products from trusted sellers.
