Australia has always had an M rating which has allowed for mature games; it was the R18+ rating which was previously not present. The R18+ rating still has barriers set for sexualised violence, and with rape being heavily implied by this scene in the uncensored version and the recent removal of sale of Grand Theft Auto 5 due to claims of sexual violence, it makes sense that this would happen. Sure, it is real shitty, and there were options in the game to censor some of this content, but sadly makes sense giving the actual rating scale and other decisions that have been made. The classification board has tended to take a poor view on games that simulate crimes, for example Mark Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure was banned here for its simulated graffiti

I actually think that it shouldn't matter whether the developer believes the game is "finished" or "not". If the developer is charging money for it, it is reviewable. If it is reviewable, then it can be quick looked. Though, I am really glad that you guys found a way to cover these that you were comfortable with.

A reason for piracy he missed their: the region-based overcharging for a downloaded copy of a game. There is no reason why it should cost me $40 more to download a game because I live in Australia compared to America.

I got Far Cry 3, Mass Effect 3 (I seriously only just started this about a week ago, 8 hours in), Borderlands 2, Reyman Origins, I'm only 30 hours into Skyrim so much more stuff I want to do in that, Hitman:Absolution, Just Cause 3, Red Dead Redemption, Renegade Ops, Red Faction Guerilla, Warhammer 40k: Space Marine, inFamous2 (all PS3), Pokemon Black 2, Pokemon Conquest, Professor Layton and the Lost Future, Professor Layton and the Last Spectre, Zombie U, New Super Mario Bros U, and I'm replaying the Jak and Daxter trilogy. Those are just what I'm juggling at the moment I got quite a few steam games I haven't started yet.

I thought I was bad but some of you guys really make me feel better about what I got left to play.

It says in the IGN article that they stopped counting somewhere in the mid 20's but they also report that they counted at least 35 more instances of small studio closures/significant layoffs. Its been a rough year

I never thought of Quick Looks as anything over than a normally funny introduction to a game. I've watched a lot of the QL's I've never thought they were intended to be a review and I don't think the guys have ever said anything that would lead to that.

So I guess if I disagree, I get my money back... Right? Oh no, the evil Valve taking advantage of me just like most other video game companies

I think... that maybe, this is about Yu-Gi-Oh... To which I would point out that this is a card game based on a tv show in which the cards are based on ancient egypt and have the ability to cause doom and destruction and end the world, and the main character is a kid who is possessed by the spirit of an ancient Egyptian warlord (I think) and that's not even in the top 5 for messed up characters so... why is it worth complaining about?
