    The funny thing is, I fully expect Troy Baker's Boss to correct a Zinyak quote at some point. He has read Jane Eyre thirteen times you know.

    And... not so great news for Australia.

    http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/07/29/saints-row-4s-refused-classification-status-upheld-in-australia/

    The center of the controversy appears to be the drug related content and not the probe gun, which is still available as part of the season pass to Europe and other territories.

    Space drugs, ruining your children's future since never.

    Did SR2 make it to Australia unedited? Because that game had drugs as powerups. You did one mission while high.

    Well that isn't as bad as it sounds. Fallout 3 had drug related content that resulted in it getting RC'd, but a quick name-change was all that was required.

    So apparently if you pre-order from Amazon, you get everything the Steam version offers (including same price) but you also get $10 in Amazon credit.

  • SoundsPlushSoundsPlush yup, back. Registered User regular
    Looks to me like the boxed version gets $10 credit (and a $50 price tag) whereas the Steam code version doesn't (with the $45 tag), though preorder bonuses are the same.

    Yeah will definitely be hitting up this thread for some help in acquiring this when it's out.

    Stupid CRB and it's stupid review system... Somehow this falls outside of an R classification. Completely absurd.

  • -SPI--SPI- Registered User regular
    It's not really that absurd. They have 2 things that are very clearly stated and easily avoidable. Sexual Violence and rewards or benefits from illicit drug use.

    The drugs part can be changed easily and they can remove the rape weapon from the game and viola, an R rated game.

    Setting aside the rape point (which I have no issue with for obvious reasons), I strongly object to the drug point - why drug use as a positive is considered so heinous as to be beyond R and into the X category is completely absurd.

    Quite frankly it's excessive and does not comport with reality - drug use as a means to improve yourself is extraordinarily common place and even if one has reservations about that fact it STILL can not reasonably be held to exist in the same category as rape or sexual violence. It's just completely insane as a classification system and needs to be amended.

    An R rating is meant to reflect dangerous ideas for children and for caution to be considered for an adult audience, NOT as a nanny state "you must avert your gaze!" style censor to adult material.

    Or they could not kowtow to a bunch of antiquated fundamentalists who think that adults shouldn't be allowed to make their own decisions about what sort of media they consume. And stick with their artistic vision as designed.

    At least it can be imported without many extra steps, right?
    Edit: I mean Steam-wise and so on. It should still work with local infrastructure once its there?

    Uhhhh.... did Amazon upgrade their digital copy of SR3 to The Full Package? Because I just got an email saying "Thank you for purchasing Saints Row the Third: The Full Package from Amazon.com. Your purchase entitles you to a $5 credit towards the pre-order of Saints Row IV."

    Edit: I guess it was just a catch all name. Looks like you get a free $5 towards SR4 if you bought 3 from Amazon.

    I'd like to point out at this juncture that if the current Australian video game censorship system was applied to old Looney Tunes cartoons, they would in all likelihood be banned for being completely unsuitable for all of mankind on the basis that they're a pointlessly and gratuitously ultra-violent, drug-fueled, pornographic journey into the center of one rabbit's personal darkness. This doesn't in any way prove or disprove that the "Rape Gun" (yeah let's all call it that like we're the living embodiment of tabloid journalism) is or isn't completely awful, but it's entirely possible that if you're basing your definition of propriety on modern Australian censorship that you may in fact have made some kind of terrible judgement error. Now let's wait for Saints Row IV to come out and then actually see what Whatever The Thing Was Even Called, I Can Only Think Of The Word "Rape", Thanks For That PA Forums: The Gun is like. And then we can all be the precisely correct level of appalled, because we'll know. You don't need to have a practice run for feeling offended. You just need to see something offensive.

    Also here is a picture of some SMGs with some alternate weapon skins and models that Volition just released today:

    It was a knee jerk reaction I admit. From the reading the description though, it sounds like it is essentially a portable Genki canon in its actual usage.
