  • NEWS: As you’ve probably no doubt heard already, Saints Row IV has become the first video game to be refused classification by the Australian Classifications Board since the introduction of the R18+. Instead of meeting the adults-only R18+ criteria, Saints Row IV has been refused classification on the grounds of sexualised violence and drug use rewards. As such Saints Row IV will not be legally sold within Australian borders, for any platform. Much like the Mortal Kombat debacle, eager fans can try their luck at importing a copy from overseas, though importing refused classification material does run the risk of being nabbed at customs, which may result in a warning and/or fine. Volition is supposedly working on an altered version of Saints Row IV that Deep Silver hopes will meet the ACB’s standards for release.
  • NEWS: Though it’s still about a year away, BioWare has released the first direct feed image of Dragon Age: Inquisition running on Frostbite 3. Check it.
  • VIDEO: In other Frostbite 3 news, DICE has put together a snazzy promotion video showing off various engine features that will be present in Battlefield 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Mirror’s Edge 2.
