looks like you gotta either get killed, save or go to a hospital to regain health

Hilarious, and quite knowledgeable video! Sad to see that censorship in Australia is still active ten years later... I mean, if you want your video game character to have sex with a prostitute, then you should be allowed to, damn it!

Kinda feels lonely without the sex in it.

In Australia you’re not allowed to bring your own porn into the country…they actually confiscate it LOL (as seen on tv)

I'm glad I don't live in Australia. They seem to be just as bad as China for censoring stuff. I'm sure the average Aussie is cool, but the powers that be seem to treat them like they're children.

Oh silly Aussies. Here we are ten years later and they still treat video games as if no one over the age of 15 plays them.
