Left 4 Dead 2 Banned in Australia.

As much as we hate to admit it, we don't all play MMO's 24/7...

Woot Woot! Gogo Attorney General's office/Ratings board. Protect those children! Cripple that revenue! Foster that resentment of christian values! We all know you're not actually helping anybody, but the important thing is you think you are. So good for you.

Yeah Fallout was banned for drug references, which could be removed without really affecting the game. With L4D2 it's "excessive violence against humans infected with a Rabies like virus". That's pretty much the whole game.

Good thing that the excessive violence against humans mutated by high levels of radiation wasnt an issue in fallout ;)

That or the other 1000 zombie games ever made. Honestly in Dead Rising you can stab a zombie in the face with a shower head and blood spurts out the shower, and the zombies in that are the infected rather than the undead type too.

Image

Plus of course the endless games with realistic violence against humans not zombies ;)

Unfortunately, I bought the censored version. Thankfully, my mates and I edited the appid.txt and steam.inf files and changed 550 to 510 which enables gore. You need to launch the game using the executable instead of the Steam shortcut. It borks achievements but the game is so much better. I don't need the gore as much as corpses that don't despawn half a second after you kill them. That's the most annoying part. Maybe one day Valve will release an improved version for Australia but I'm not holding my breath.

The game itself is awesome fun and I doubt I'll ever play the original again as #2 is superior is many ways.
More alts than you can beat with dual wielded Thrash Blades.

Yeah i've been playing the censored version and i must admit the dissappearing bodies are stupid. I might ask my good friend google about how to do this change >_>

Playing online in some versus(?) mode and shit was pretty cash. Playing as infected is awesome, charging people and spitting is v fun. When i was playing as survivors my char bugged out twice after being charged - it bugs and you can't move after you get charged. really F~ing annoying
