Let Us Sing a Sad Song for Australia
« on: November 01, 2009, 04:53:46 PM »
I recently heard that their government regulated video game raters are not allowing Left 4 Dead 2 to be sold in the Continent/Island/Country. On a positive note. The zombie apocalypse is probably not hitting them too hard when it comes.

Either that, or it will hit there harder than anywhere else, seeing as the populace will not have the opportunity to sharpen their zombie-fighting skills.

Then again they might do fine. We'll be easy targets because we'll all be yelling about lag, and cheaters while the zombies sneak up on us.

Not too sad for them even if it was totally banned (I guess it's not as Sabby says). L4D1 was a terrible disappointment in my eyes. It just felt like a bunch of mini-games. Sure killing zombies is fun but I was expecting... I don't know. A long campaign mode? And an open-world game was what I was really hoping for.

Are you kidding?  In Australia we have three kinds of animals.  Things with big claws and teeth; things that are venomous; and sheep.  Trust me, you don't want to piss off the sheep.  The zombies won't stand a chance.

Plus, I'll be getting my survival t-shirts printed up soon, which should help.  "Fellow Zombie - DO NOT EAT" will be emblazoned across my chest and back in large letters..

Hehe. This reminded me of a Cracked article I recently read.

In 2004, a man tried to stab Jumer Selimovski, who retaliated by shooting the man in the hand. Since then, Jumer hasn't felt safe, so he picked up his family and moved elsewhere. Even in the new house he didn't feel safe, believing he heard footsteps on his roof and swearing to cops that he was the victim of "disturbing events." We couldn't find any details, but this is Australia, where they wake up and have to kill five of the most deadly insects on Earth to go to the crapper, so we're guessing this was a bit more intense than your usual drunken shenanigans. So, with a family to protect, he did what any sane man would do.

*Snickers*  I love Cracked.

Oh, re: Zombie Apocalypse, I should have mentioned, we run annual drills in my hometown.  We should be fine.

Put a dozen zombies in a street with a Casowary... just as effective as 4 people with shotguns.

No, serious, those things are mean. They would kick those zombies about like soccer balls.

Yeah but then there's the possibility of zombie-Casowary.
