What do you guys think about this? I think its but I know that it will get modded on the PC in days to show the proper names.
I see Jet, Mentats, Buffout, Psycho, and Rad-X. Oh, and morphine.

Fallout 3 was originally refused classification by the Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification, citing among other reason the in-game use of “Morphine” in order to ignore limb pain. According to the Office’s guidelines, “material promoting or encouraging proscribed drug use” is refused classification.

Well thank fucking Christ for that. I can't imagine what would happen if there were a TV show about a doctor who's addicted to painkillers and pops them like fucking candy for his limb pain. No way you could give that a mature rating.

I immediately closed the window and opened Amazon to cancel my preorder, but then figured I'd go back and read the rest. At the thought of censoring things globally because of the unbelievably fascist motherfucking Australian government, I literally saw RED. My vision literally shifted to shades of red and I have never in my life wanted to torture somebody so badly. In the end, though, I don't think this is nearly as heinous as the complete lack of nudity or [allegedly] marginal amount of blood/gore.

Australia likes banning things - and usually for really stupid reasons. The idea of making a hardcore mature game like Fallout safe for Australia in any way, shape or form, is enough to give me pause. If drug references are the only things the Australian ratings board had problems with, then it's very likely Bethesda did, in fact, fuck the game up long before this controversy.


Scriv dude....calm down there buddy
