Really? This is the first I've heard of a new MK, but honestly, they should have retired the series years ago.

A lot of the people I know were planning on buying it. I'm sure they will be disappointed, as I am.

Not surprised at this to be honest, coming from the same ratings board that banned Fallout 3 for using the word Morphine. confused.gif

FARKERISING GIRRRR NOOOOO D: ...

 

Nah, f*ck that, I can't stand all these bannings, I told my mate about the trailer and after that he said 'That's not going to last long here.' Can't believe it actually happened, this is so lame.

 

I can't believe we can't have all these extras other countries do.

Pretty lame that they constantly ban games but as people have already mentioned I reckon you lot can just order them online.

Whatever happened to the proposed R rating?

 

Never even knew there was a a new Mortal Kombat, but I wont lie by saying I knew this was going to be about Australia before opening the thread.

Morteal Kombat is a bullsh*t game.

Good for you.

 

So you can still just buy the game from outside Australia? I'm glad the banning system works. sarcasm.gif

"As with many other forms of media, there is a demand and place for an adult themed narrative. We trust adults with this material in other media forms, yet deny them similar access simply because it’s a ‘game’. We should not accept the argument that because it’s “unsuitable for a minor to see or play” that it should therefore be banned in any other media form, so why video games?"

 

Add to that the fuss being made about wii game We Dare by surprise surprise the daily mail it's take a p**s on videogames week

Manhunt Originally rated MA15+ but Federal Attorney-General Phil Ruddock later appealed the rating thus being banned afterwards because of high-impact violence and cruelty.

NARC Banned because of drug use related to incentives.

Shellshock: Nam '67 Originally banned because of high impact violence; however, it was re-rated MA15+ uncut when the game was resubmitted and objectionable content was shown within proper context.

Tender Loving Care Originally banned because of sexual references and nudity ; however, due to being more of an interactive live-action movie than a videogame, it was later submitted as an interactive DVD and was rerated MA15+.

The Punisher Originally banned because of high impact violence involving torture. Edited worldwide due to troubles with other countries as well (such as being rated with an AO18+ rating in America and threatened as being objectionable by the UK's BBFC) and this edition was passed through with an MA15+. Australia got the same version as America and Europe.

Like stated before, why censor games when you can just buy them on the net, and if they have the hardware, they can buy the American version, where nothing gets censored..............I wonder why? confused.gif

Basically it forces us not to support local retailers, good policy you idiot politicians.

 

There will be changes and we will have an R18, when this new politician makes an effort to bring to light.

Agreed. A government should have better things to be doing. Not to mention the fact that it has never been proven that violent games make you aggresive (of course, there have been studies with an outcome of "if you take away an addict's videogames, he'll get more angry than someone who doesn't play videogames" - I kid you not!)
