So where it says the version of the game it says modified now other games that have been censored like south park the stick of truth and saints row iv all have the same tag

what is going on here?
Show us your letters to classification board here forum:
Also if anyone has sent a complaint in to the board like some people have please share what you said in that complaint and help keep this thread alive so that maybe someone from telltale can shed some light on the situation

  • Australia is known to censor violent games, or games that have drug usage. The Classification Board from Australia members are 60 year woman who even censored Hello Kitty Island Adventure for being too scary for children.

  • like kiwi said not everything is censored what bothers me is that saints row iv got censored for drug use but gta got in uncensored I think they knew how big gta v was and were scared people would really get pissed off and start rioting or something if they even tried to censor the tiniest thing

  • Most companies should do what rockstar did with gta iv they had to censor it and the day it came out they patched everything that was censored back in

  • no it just means some part or parts will be cut out if telltale refused to cut it out then we would not be able to play it

    I remember when the "Hot Coffee" mod became available for GTA San Andreas the Australian government temporarily banned it until Rockstar patched it out http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4728261.stm They seem very strict when it comes to censorship.

  • edited February 2014

    yea I remember that but I don't think we were the only ones i think even the us had it banned until rockstar patched it

    EDIT: The us actually just updated the rating to adults only

    I live in Australia but I want to play the full game, not the shitty, cencored, torn to pieces game.

    Is there any way I can get around this? I really want to play the game that Telltale intended for me to play.

    Sex while fully clothed still gets banned Australia logic

  • TellTale didn't refuse to cut the offending bits out, or else A House Divided would have a RC (Refused Classification) rating.

  • Wait now that I mention it are there any parts of season 1 that were censored that I didn't know about?

  • telltale didn't even bother to submit season 1 to australia the only way you could get it was through the telltale store or steam but consoles did not get it till after 400 days came out

    I watched someone from Aus do a playthrough and it look exactly the same as the UK version so i don't think there was any censorship for S1

  • There would be no way unfortunately other than pirating a U.S version which I do not recommend doing

  • @puzzlebox is it possible to tell us what has been censored? If it involves the plot, then just tell us after the release, but I really would like to know what the Aussies (AKA Us :( ) didn't approve of.
