R18+ rating for God of War: Ascension

Always thought it would be such a good job as a gamer to work on the ratings board. You basically get to play the games so much earlier than everyone else and get paid for it. They could however just send videos of the worst parts that might push the boundries. I'll just stick to my fantasy that some lucky bastard gets to play the s**t out of these games months before release. :D

Not surprising really. Queensland is always the last one to the party on anything progressive.

That's usually what happens, a long video showing the "worst" parts is sent to the boards who give it a rating. If anything is left out of the video which is in actual release then they are heavily fined.

I'd be disappointed if the game wasn't banned somewhere! Would mean Santa Monica aren't pushing those GOW boundaries

Great when a game like this comes along but think of all the shovelware you would have to rate each week. Could get really tedious.
