Edited NecroVisioN Clears Aussie Censors

May 22, 2009 -

Following edits, first-person shooter NecroVisioN has been approved for sale in the Australian market, according to games.on.net.

GamePolitics readers may recall that Australian censors refused to issue an age classification to the game earlier this year. Published by 1C, NecroVisioN combines World War I trench combat and battles against demonic enemies.

games.on.net reports that the NecroVisionN's level of gore was toned down sufficiently to receive an MA15+, currently Australia's most restrictive rating. One important edit appears to have been changing blood sprays into gray dust.

GameSpot Australia has more.

Overreact much, guys?  It's not as bad as the media are making it out to be.  The number of games refused classification in a year can be counted on ... well less than a hand really.

But there's no doubt the system really needs to change over here, but like all things in politics, change happens slowly.  It's true especially of games considering the current movement all over the world where games are the new "boogy man" ... thanks to the likes of your own Jack Thompson.

The game is not very gorey and the blood spraying is forgettable..you want gore? try Quake 2 or Unreal.

Dear Australlia,

If I use my imagination.... the blood is still red, and that makes me a killer at heart right? RIGHT?

 

I'm rethinking my Australlia trip.. seriously. Not sure I want my tourism dollars supporting such an over reaching "Nanny State." There are other countries I can vacation in.

So they pulled a Germany and gave it grey blood.

What? Not rainbows and sparkles? I really wish that one of these days  someone will change blod sprays to the following quote, "Michael Atkinson is the reason you can't see blood in this game." Have that spray all over the place.

prh99Steam has added a curator system. You can follow your favorites and see their recommendations http://store.steampowered.com/curators/09/22/2014 - 9:07pm
MaskedPixelantePlus there's the whole "we don't use accounts" thing that means if you lose your 3DS and have to get a new one, you have to deal with Nintendo customer service to get your downloads back instead of, you know, logging in and downloading them.09/22/2014 - 8:39pm
MonteIndeed. Their wallet system, the lack of sales, applying tax, the lack of price cuts, the eshop is pretty terrible. Only use it for indie games.09/22/2014 - 8:29pm
Andrew EisenThat's the one I'm eyeballing. Really dug the demo. Didn't care as much for EOIV though.09/22/2014 - 8:19pm
MaskedPixelanteOoh, an Atlus sale, it must be a day that ends in "y". I'd much rather get physical 3DS games because of Nintendo's outdated digital distribution policies, but EOU is near impossible to find anywhere nowadays... conflicted.09/22/2014 - 7:48pm
Andrew EisenOooh, Atlus sale in the 3DS eShop. I might have to bust open my piggy bank. http://www.siliconera.com/2014/09/22/shin-megami-tensei-iv-atlus-games-sale/09/22/2014 - 7:21pm

Andrew EisenWhat did Nintendo do thrice in one game?09/22/2014 - 6:48pm
MaskedPixelanteYou know it's a bogus defense when Nintendo of all companies does it THREE TIMES in one game.09/22/2014 - 6:29pm
E. Zachary KnightIt is stupid that they went with the "It would be too much work to add a woman assassin" defense rather than just being honest and admiting they didn't think about it until it was brought up.09/22/2014 - 6:06pm
E. Zachary KnightYeah, this is a different game and it is not out of the ordinary for them. THey did the same for the pirate one.09/22/2014 - 6:05pm
MaskedPixelanteTurns out it's less "impossible", more "part of the season pass, but only in an exclusive game that's separate from ACU proper".09/22/2014 - 6:01pm

ZippyDSMleeIf publishers didn't play the region lock game then it would not be an issue.Tho I have seen more russian/chec games than asia ones on ebay.If they do not like it then mabye lower thier region prices to make alitte vrs none.09/22/2014 - 9:54am
