Hopefully by june we will have an answer on the R18+ issue.

The censored version actually affected game play, and I played competitively at the time, so thank the Gods for our brus across the water.

This problem is also apparent when listening to Yahtzee’s reviews of games, as he sometimes has to review stuff later than its initial release because he has to wait for his imports >_>

By the way, to circumvent this issue, wouldn’t it be possible for someone outside of Australia to buy a game on Steam and then gift it? Of course it necessitates paypal / other ways of paying the buyer (and having buddies outside Australia that you trust enough), but it could be a way of avoiding higher prices.
