I'm in total agreement with you bluexy

I'm glad much wasn't cut out but this whole drama for a single mission? Grow up ARB.

I have to agree as well. Saint's Row is one of the few sandbox series where you can do all of the irresponsible stuff in a video game as opposed to real life, and you're taking that minor freedom away?

At least it didn't get hit as badly as Left 4 Dead did when it got to the land down under.

I like how much the rating changed from the removal of the mission. So I'm assuming the new rating was indeed useless, gg ARB, gg.

It was rejected twice and when it was finally accepted it was rated MA15+ instead of R18+
Haha

I feel really bad for Australia.
It's like the kid whose mom wouldn't let him go anywhere because she was so afraid that he'd get germs or see something violent.

Well, no wonder. As long as the ARB is controlled by some Communist policy makers, in addition to the 'monkey politics' in Canberra, Australia, gamers will be pissed off by restrictive/draconian censorship towards games. R 18+ in Australia is just a sham, just like Communist election!

Words cannot describe how furious I am at this (being Aussie). All the trouble we went through to get an R18 rating, and now they're just ignoring it. Are the guidelines for R18 so narrow that you're only allowed one more swear word above MA15? Anything more and it's still bannable? Oh well, I learned my lesson with L4D2, just buy from the UK.

The Government here is a Joke, not to mention that the current ruling party has kicked out their own prime minister two terms running. And worse, the guy who got kicked out the first time is now back in the second time, like that's going to work out. And our only other choice is a creationist.

As much as I love this (Better than nothing), I have to ask, as an Aussie: What the hell happened to the R18+ rating?! I swear, the ACB are retards.

Also, I 100% agree with what snowgim said

Yep. Completely ignores the fact that they have approved a higher rating grade some time ago. They could just have slapped that rating on it.

Might have stopped certain places from selling it though, I dunno.
