This week is a hybrid of a “greatest hits” episode and a short news brief, we’ve got a couple stories, community comments and Don added a blooper “greatest hits” reel to the end of the episode, so enjoy! The news includes:

This week, we’re still busting a question of the week as well and it’s a thinker… if you had one novel to implement into a game (which has never been done), what novel would it be?

    Well in turns out Valve did spend some Munny and got Left for dead 2 accepted by the board to be released in Australia, though it’s a modified version (gore removed). Their is now also a discussion that their is enough pressure from developers, investors & general interest to get an 18+ Rating in the near future. I believe the sides of argument is that having a 18+ rating will allow evil & disturbing games to be accessed to young people, & the other side is that it should be the responsibility of the parents to monitor and restrict what games they play and the rating is there to support parents in their decision. Another issue is not having an 18+ rating will allow games that should be 18+ to be sold to a younger audience.
    Well that’s some gaming news from Aus

    I wish i could answer the question of the week, but i generally dont read, and what i do read is purely informative and not fiction.
    Maybe the reason why a novel hasn’t been made into a game is that gamers don’t read. Ha, well i’m not saying I hate reading and it’s a waste of time, but i rather sit down to a good game rather than a good book.
