Why Dead Rising 2 is not getting released in Australia [shortblog]

...Or at least as far as I can see. For those of you not in the know, Left 4 Dead 2 was banned in Australia for it's portrayal of bloody zombie violence. If you've been unfortunate enough to play the massively pussified Australian version, you'll know how heartbreaking a decision it was to neuter it. Dead Rising 2 is superficially similar, but obviously is much more cartoonish in it's portrayal of zombie genocide....

....But it allows you to kill zombies with sex toys:

I mean fuck, d'you think the Classification board is gonna let that through? Are they gonna allow a game to be sold that allows you to duct tape two chainsaws onto a paddle and cut a bloody swathe through hordes of the undead? Because that'd be awesome.

Dead Rising 2 is apparently being released in August but I'm sure we'll see a decision in a few months.

About Alasdair Duncanone of us since 9:17 AM on 10.13.2007

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.

Plus he crave attention via the following:
