Because of HL2's R18+ rating in Europe, Australia will have to closely review HL2 to see if it abides by it's M15+ only Videogame rating. If not, the Half Life 2 will be banned in Australia for sale or import. This leaves one option left. Are the aussie ratings board trying to promote the Black Market?

What about Steam? I mean, sure it'd be illegal, but it's not exactly like they could easily regulate it.

Erm... I know this is a stereotypical response, but "kiwi" refers to New Zealanders, not Australians. The Kiwi is a native bird of NZ, not Aus.

R18+ ? It no where as bad as legal R18+ gay porn DVDs. Oh wait maybe Half Life 2 got some unexpected surprises, it could contain gay porn in part of the game like the naked girls from Duke Nukem. :lol:

Erm Kiwi's are from New Zealand. Next time try Kangaroo, Dingo, Great White Shark, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Kylie Minogue, Eric Bana....the list goes on....but NO SHEEP AND NO BLOODY KIWIS! :P

...thankyou...

Well said... thought I'd suggest you probably do have SOME sheep over there. Just not as many as us :P.

Indeed no wonder they found Half Life 2 the scariest game than The Exorcist rated M15 and MA15, what a load of pansies kiwi really are. :rolleyes:

I find it quite stupid that Australia is the only place in the world that doesn't have an R18+ rating for video games.

Whole this Rating thing is crap. No they don't allow games where some guy is shooting aliens,but they allow movies on TV where they kill other ppls,rape them and so on. Bull****. Hey,i played all those XXL M rated brutal games with super duper blood patches applied and i haven't killed any ppl and not even an animal.
Looks like they'll mark Tetris with M because we destroy blocks :roll:

I love how you still call them Kiwis after it was explained by TWO people that "Kiwi" refers to a New Zealander, NOT Australian. Way to go! :rolleyes:
