whole R18+ rating for games situation

Alex gets bonus points from me for squeezing in a reference to Tony Martin’s last radio show, Get This. R.I.P.

R18+ and Video Games: A History of Violence [YouTube, thanks Alex]


  • Biggest loss to radio ever having Get This axed. I’m still suckling at the podcasts i have like a wombat suckling at it’s dead mothers teet on the side of the road….

  • bah……..ive had it with aus ratings and prices. Im no longer getting anything here in australia, im going to order online for $60 an [uncensored] game.

  • Loved it. Great work! To be fair though, it’s not the classification board’s fault; it’s those damn thugs in the scallop industry.

  • I can personally reassure you that “his course” has had a class deal with (quote) ‘rip off’ (unquote) of the works of others.

    Personally I think Alex has done a wonderful job, all power to his arm!

  • On the YouTube page he says this in the description.

    “And yes, I was inspired (heavily. Sorry Yahtzee!) by Zero Punctuation. Go and watch all his videos! The Burnout Paradise review is awesome!”

    Always steal from the best.
