and Adelaide is still run by Christian extremists.

[/quote]Why is it the NSW attorney general blocking the R18+ rating, while Adelaide (with all the "Christian Extremist" that I have never encountered) is introducing an R18+ rating?  Stop propagating an outdated stereotype.

WA cabinet is on board with R18+ Rating; hopefully Brendan O'Connor cracks it and just passes it anyway!

Smith is a hardcore Christian.. so not a big surprise.. grew up with his kids and they're on my FB.. I should message them angrily lol

Besides that there is something happening that's interesting on the Classifications front but I can't say anything else sadly..

Nothing I hate more then pointless stalling! lol

 

A spokesperson from Greg Smith's office had this to say:

 

“Any suggestion that we’re trying to derail the R18+ rating for games is completely untrue,” claimed the spokesperson. “Is a train derailed because it stops at a station? All we’re trying to do is create a situation where we have more certainty for gamers when it comes to classification, instead of rushing into something. "

 

“This has been on the agenda for a very long time now – over ten years now? Waiting a little bit longer to make sure classification is done correctly is not derailing the process – why the rush now? We would just end up with bad policy."

Why rush now they ask, I mean its only been over a decade! lol

Does this mean now we can get access to more of the Indie type games and will Microsoft be adding more of that type of film + games to our Zune on our Xbox??

[/quote]Doubtful.  Indie games don't have any classification rating at all.  Games need to be rated to be sold in Australia.

stereotype, essentially what SA are trying to do is move the MA15 games into an R18 rating and what is now restricted is still restricted. didn't really thenk you were the sort of person that would be fooled by political bs zen.

they are just moving all games with any boundary pushing content out of reach of the youth, while still keeping Australia from having one rule for all... just because what i am saying is old does not make it any less relevant.

yes NSW not voting was ridiculous, but when have they ever agreed to vote, even if they did SA was going to have there own laws which would most likely mean all of Australia got altered content anyway. 

 

[/quote]I will concede that.  I won't accept your comments that we are "religious extremists" though.  That amounts to calling us the same as some redneck Alabamians, which I find insulting.
