And you won't become drug addicts

After a ridiculous amount of faffing about, Saints Row IV has finally been deemed appropriate for adults to buy. Until now, Australian men and women were considered responsible enough to get jobs, buy homes, and get married, but not responsible enough to play an over-the-top video game.

Deep Silver has revealed that this mission has been cut from the game, removing about 20 minutes of gameplay. It will not, the publisher assures Australian consumers, impact the story or change any of the gameplay.

It's another victory in mankind's never-ending battle against extra-terrestrial narcotics.
