Cosplayer pulled off of train for carrying “weapons”

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!

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.

Australian Government to reform game classification

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.

Australia links gambling to iPad games for kids

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.

Australia proves it doesn’t know what an adult is

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.

The Xbox One vs PS4 debate – Now with more drunk Aussies

Opinions are like belly buttons: Everyone has one, and no one cares about yours. Yep, if you want to make it in the world of people giving a damn, you need something special in order to stand out. And by special, I mean being downright drunk.

This Mad Max gameplay looks ripper

Growing up, I loved the Mad Max movies. Mostly because I thought that they were documentary videos about Port Elizabeth. Which would also explain why a massive guy dressed in leather undies and a hockey mask was riding around telling people to leave the BP filling station. And now, PE The Video Game Mad Max has some gameplay to show off.

Saints Row 4 banned in Oz because of an alien sexual assault weapon

I’ll give Australia some credit, even though it causes me an intense level of pain, about their recent policies on allowing adults to choose what games they want to play.
