Australian government finally introduces R18+ bill, to go into effect next year {Joystiq}

Feb 16th 2012 2:04AM Please, get your facts straight. The bill has not passed the House of Representatives yet (or the senate) - it was introduced yesterday but a coalition MP sent it to an inquiry (which can take anywhere from a day to several months).

Also, the bill _does_ make it a federal rating, but the states will have to pass legislation to allow the sale of R rated games.
(All the ratings are at the federal level, but it's up to each state to enforce them.)

Rocksmith update adds user interface and lag tweaks {Joystiq}

Feb 7th 2012 6:28AM It is in fact an awesome game - it's a better teaching tool than RB3's Pro Mode (though neither catered properly to me - an absolute beginner - it's nice to know how to do some of these things with my guitar, but a little reassurance that I'm holding it the right way would be nice). I think it's awesome that I can use my RB3 Stratocaster with it.

Now, Ubisoft, what do you have to do? Release it in Australia already! The 360 version is region locked, and since the PS Store is region locked, I can't get DLC in my imported PS3 copy.

Portal Kombat proves the cake is a Liu Kang {Joystiq}

Apr 19th 2011 9:50PM Which one do I buy? Easy. The government I didn't vote for isn't letting me buy MK, so my choices are limited.

Aliens vs. Predator is $5 on Steam until Thursday {Joystiq}

Apr 6th 2011 10:54AM @ELKMoz Regional pricing. Blame the publishers, they want their $$$ and you can either love it or shove it. But they figure that because some of us are in a country where we can't get Mortal Kombat we should pay more for the games that we can get.

Rumor: Warner Bros. joining 'online pass' camp with Mortal Kombat {Joystiq}

Mar 29th 2011 9:21PM This won't matter to me, as I'm Australian, and apparently we're all dribbling babies who need Customs to make sure we don't get into things like the poison cupboard or games with a bit of blood.

Jan 2nd 2011 8:32AM @3: GoW is fun. It's a bit of a shame how many games have copied it though.

@5: AssBro isn't a 2011 (console) game either, although there is a PC port scheduled for release in Q1 (

Jan 1st 2011 9:30PM RDR isn't a _2011_ console game. So no.

(It would be awesome to see it though).
