Well, someone's on Santa's 'naughty' list.
There isn't much Assassin's Creed in Assassin's Creed Pirates.
The Australian Classification Board has classified multiple video games as R18+ since the introduction of the rating in January this year. But despite this South Australian Attorney General John Rau is claiming the guidelines aren’t being applied rigorously enough, and plans to write to the Federal Government in an attempt to apply more scrutiny to the Australian Classification Board.
On Friday we learned that the Australian Federal Government intended to implement a number of classification recommendations put forward by the ALRC. For video games, two recommendations have the potential to change the way content is classified in this country. We spoke to Josh Cavaleri, Legal and Policy Counsel for the iGEA to figure out precisely what these changes might entail.
As a result of Australia’s new R18+ rating, Mortal Kombat finally received a classification in this country. But while Warner Brothers waits to officially release the game here, Gametraders is exercising its legal right to import the game from overseas, slap an R18+ sticker on the game and sell it in-store — and why not?
When it was finally announced that R18+ legislation had been passed in Queensland, there was only one step left to take before the new legislation finally came into being — the Governor of Queensland had to sign off on the act. Now we can officially announce that the Classification of Computer Games and Images and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2013 has been signed. R18+ games can now officially be bought and sold in QLD.
If I was to gamble my life savings on what would have been the first R18+ game in Australia, I’d currently be dead broke. That game will be Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2+ for the PS Vita and it’s set for release next Thursday. We’ve been shown a first look at the game as it will be sold in stores next Thursday.
