Bulletstorm gets heavily censored German version

Those dicktits at the Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle have rated a heavily censored version of Bulletstorm, a variant that more or less loses the entire point of the game. 

The German edition will not feature ragdoll effects, blood spatters, or dismemberment of any kind. Since the game is built off the back of ragdoll effects, blood spatters and dismemberment of all kinds, it more or less makes one wonder if anybody outside of FOX News would want to play this game. 

Fortunately, Electronic Arts has Germany's back on this. The publisher will be distributing the PEGI-rated Austrian version of Bulletstorm to German gamers as well, giving them the option of a dickless edition or a full-on man-fest. That's the plan, anyway. The ovelords may opt to ban foreign versions before then. 

Censoring videogames will not erase the Holocaust from history.
