Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut

The Australian Classifications Board has recently announced that they will be reviewing twelve video games that had just this year escaped being classified as R18+ and deemed to be just MA15+. While they are now out on store shelves and been purchased and played by many, the South Australian Attorney General has put in a request for all the following games to be reviewed:

  • Killer is Dead
  • Alien Rage
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist
  • Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut
  • Company of Heroes 2
  • God Mode
  • Borderlands 2: Add-on Content Pack
  • Fuse
  • Deadpool
  • The Walking Dead
  • Gears of War: Judgement
  • The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

The board will meet on the 18th / 19th November and 2nd / 4th / 5th December 2013 to consider these applications. What benefit or impact this will have on the gaming community is unknown given many people who want the titles would already own them. In addition, I wonder when they will be doing a review of the Atelier Totori Plus classification given negligible additions (None of which I feel warranted any classification change) changed the game from PG to R18+.
