For 2 måneder siden kunne du her på siden læse om Left 4 Dead 2‘s problemer, med at komme ind på det australske markede, da “The Australian Classification Board” valgte at banne spillet. Australien fik dog til sidst L4D2 på hylderne, men i en censureret udgave hvor zombierne eksempelvis forsvinder fra jorden, når de er blevet skudt. Nu er den gal i Australien igen.

Denne gang er det Aliens Vs. Predator, som har fået cuttet. Det er ting som halshugning og forskellige typer af knivstik på specifikke kropsteder, som gennem øjet, brystet, munden eller halsen, der er skyld i banningen. Rebellion som står bag spillet, har givet deres svar på banningen og det ser ud til, at de australske spillere må undvære AvP3.

“The Australian Classification Board” giver deres baggrund for banningen:

 

“The game contains first-person perspective, close-up depictions of human characters being subjected to various types of violence, including explicit decapitation and dismemberment as well as locational damage such as stabbing through the chest, mouth, throat, or eyes”

“Characters can be stabbed with a Predator’s wrist blade or an Alien’s tail in depictions reminiscent of impalement. The Predator collects ‘trophies’ by explicitly ripping off human heads, their spinal columns dangling from severed necks. Heads can be twisted completely around in order to break a character’s neck. Eyes can be stabbed through or gouged, leaving empty, bloodied eye sockets.”

“It is noted that a player is able to combine manoeuvres together in quick succession, which further increases impact; for example, a Predator can stab a character through both eyes with its wrist blade and rip off their head, with spinal column still attached. Extensive post-mortem damage, including decapitation and dismemberment, is also possible.”

 

Rebellion har afslået at lave en censureret udgave af spillet til specifikke regioner og kritiserer indirekte den Australske regering, for ikke at lade folk selv bestemme deres valg af underholdning:

 

“We will not be releasing a sanitized or cut down version for territories where adults are not considered by their governments to be able to make their own entertainment choices.”

 

Heldigvis kan AVP-fansene i Danmark få lov til, at lege med det kommende Aliens vs. Predator, men kan nutidens spil blive for voldelige? Eller er det fint for dig at halshugge folk, for hyggens og underholdningens skyld?
