Alasdair Duncan is that bearded, bespectacled Scotsman that covers PC gaming that is not Fraser Brown. A long time Destructoid community member and forum moderator, he covers adventure, puzzle, FPS and all kinds of games on the PC. Watch, as he adds more games to his Steam library with only the vaguest hope of ever playing most of his games.
Alasdair has been gaming since his mother bought a Commodore 64 back in the early 1980's. He adores Deus Ex, GTA Vice City, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, Super Mario Brothers 3 and all those weird indie titles on Steam.
You can meet Alasdair at places like PAX where he tries to convince people he isn't a) drunk or b) Irish.
A few months ago, I posted a cblog about how I doubted that Dead Rising 2 was ever going to get released in AustraliaWell, incredibly Games On.net are reporting that Dead Rising 2 will be released in Australia, uncut with an MA15+ rating, which is the maximum rating possible for a videogame. Huh! If you want anymore proof about why the OFLC system is broken, then look no further.
After Left 4 Dead 2’s initially refusing of classification, then it’s appeal after the game’s violence was almost completely neutered, I feared that a game in which you could destroy zombies with gory, over-the-top methods would not pass classification.
"TAKE THAT, RATINGS BOARD!!"
I appear to have been wrong (I was wrong about Left 4 Dead 2 being announced at E3 2009, so shows what I know, right?); Dead Rising 2, a game where you can kill zombies with dildos, will be released in September, uncut and unchanged.
