LFD2 R18+ in Aus?

Just wondering if anyone knows if there's been any word on whether valve will release the 'full gore' version of L4D2 for those of us here in downunderland, now that the R18 classification has finally passed?

I believe Valve has to resubmit it for re-classification.

well, i hope they do it. i bought L4D2 a while back but it's a mere shadow of what i was expecting. i played it for about 10 minutes and decided not to touch it again until it got un-nerfed. i'll stick with L4D1 until then.

That's why I haven't bought it and refuse to until it gets a full release. I would imagine there are a lot more aussies with the same attitude.

good move, the way it is now is so non-immersive it's not funny.

...I SAW THE INFECTED OUT OF THE CORNER OF MY EYE, AND FRANTICALLY DREW A BEAD ON HIM... HE RUSHED... HE WAS ALMOST WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE, WHEN I MANAGED TO GET A SHOT OFF AND DRILLED HIM THROUGH THE FOREHEAD... a tiny puff of blood, then he disappeared and we all went home for tea. the end.

Same here. Refuse to buy it in its current form. The moment its released here in full with the new R18+ rating, I will buy it.

People just trade for it, the uncensored version that is. It'd cost like 2-3 mann co keys. I did it two years ago and have been enjoying full gore the entire time. Even easier now that trading is fully supported.

...when it first came out, there was a crack where you could change a few settings in an ini somewhere, and unlock the full gore. But you couldnt multiplay properly with this crack unless everyone else who you were playing with also had this crack. Kept getting booted.
Are you saying this is not an issue now? Are there any issues in VS mode, playing with other aussies (ie low ping) who aren't playing the 'same version'?

I don't really have time to jarate fart around with this type of thing. The law's been changed, there's an R18+ rating for games here now. Valve should just resubmit and I'll put my money down for a copy.

I can't be bothered trading items I don't have, or cracking .ini files and getting booted from servers.

As has been mentioned Valve would have to re-submit L4D2 for classification and I believe there is some cost involved, so I guess doing this would need to profitable for them.

Couple of other points regarding the new rating system.

There is a 2 year waiting period from the original submission before a game can be re-classified ( L4D2 would meet this requirement, but it does seem an excessively long time - I doubt most publishers would bother 2 years after a games release)

The other option is that a game can be re-classified on the recommendation of a federal minister, who knows perhaps there is a L4D2 fan in the parliament.

I think everyone should email valve. Inundate them with requests for this. Their contacts are at http://www.valvesoftware.com/contact/
