Alien vs. Predator Gets Green Light in Australia

on December 18, 2009 11:44 AM

Every violent game or two, it seems that the folks over in Australia get ban-teased by fuckface Attorney General Michael Atkinson. Something in his past must have happened that makes him and the rest of his Aussie posse continuously try and deprive Australian gamers from violent video games. But, fortunate for you Australian blood-seeking gamers, Sega has managed to win its appeal and overturn the decision to ban the upcoming Alien vs. Predator.

The game will receive an MA15+ rating – the country’s highest game rating that any title can receive in Australia. The game won’t undergo any content changes with the rating, which means that anyone above the age of fifteen will be able to see an enormous amount of blood and guts, hoping that the game does indeed have an excessive amount of that. And we all know how us Americans enjoy violence, right?

The news is more than surprising after Valve’s Left 4 Dead 2 got the finger and was banned in Australia. I’m pretty sure that AvP is – or is very much close to – the violence that L4D2 has. I mean, seriously, people – since when has a zombie movie been more grotesque than Aliens, let alone Predator? Predator skins people alive, for crying out loud.
