PAX Australia 2014 came and went last weekend and to say it was an improvement from last year’s convention would be a massive understatement. The convention was moved to the utterly gigantic Melbourne Exhibition Centre on Southbank, solving a lot of the space problems that plagued PAX Australia 2013 at the Melbourne Showgrounds.

It’s just another typical day in Australia. Somebody is on the train, on their daily commute to work. Suddenly, just in the corner of their eye, they spot a man in red and black, and he has a large black bag and samurai swords. PANIC! CALL THE POLICE!

Australia always seems to be the perfect punch line for any scenario, and their handling of games certification might make the rest of laugh while our Australian friends cry. Now we can say with certainty that our dear Stephen will have an easier time getting cool games than people in at least one country.

Oh good, the Australian Federal Government has realised that the way we classify games in Australia is really stupid and antiquated - so they’ve taken recommendations from the Interactive Games and Entertainment Association and the Australian Law Reform Commission to take steps to a more streamlined and considering approach.

Why so many people want to move to Australia is beyond me, if you want to live in a nanny state with nice beaches and still have some slight freedom then you may as well move to Cape Town. In another stunning act of stupidity the state of South Australia decided it was a good idea to post the following adverts to try and get people to stop gambling.

The land of the oppressed and ripped off has done it again. Yes that shining light of nanny land has once again failed to grasp the idea that a mature and well reasoned adult can make their own decisions on what they would and wouldn’t like to see.

Ever had a new piece of technology in your hands that you just cannot wait to plug in at home, but instead found yourself staring at it while doing work? We’ve all been there, and on December 13 that feeling is going to be magnified with the Playstation 4. At least our Australian gaming counterparts are prepared with sick notes for their PS4 launch.
