New Build of SCII Reportedly Granted 12+ Rating in Korea

May 21, 2010 -

A modified version of Blizzard’s StarCraft II has apparently made its way through Korea’s Games Rating Board (GRB) and earned a rating for gamers aged 12 and up.

This follows an earlier version of the game being branded with an adults only, or over 18, rating last month. 1UP, via a Team Liquid forum translation, indicates that Blizzard changed the color of in-game blood to black, removed vulgar language and exorcised smoking references in the game in order to achieve the lower age rating.

Blizzard may also consider releasing a separate version of StarCraft II that is aimed for adults only.

The game earned a “T” (Teen) rating from the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).

I have the suddern feeling that if I was ever to have blood in my game I may we well make it rainbow blood like in Jet Force Gemini.

And I should have those cigaretes changed into Big Boss lollies as well as those drug references changed to sherbert Whiz Fizz...

"...indicates that Blizzard changed the color of in-game blood to black, ..."

So... being a fictional story wasn't enough.  To help those who have difficutly telling the difference between fiction and reality, a fictional story, with fictional blood, had to have fictional blood COLOR?

What's next?  Will the fictional blood have to be called "sauce" and it topples out of the fictional body in square chunks?

I don't know about you, but I don't have cravings for pixilated blood, so I don't really care if it's black, or even completely missing.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Sora-ChanIt's a HBO show, which to be honest, considering it's HBO, it's actually surprising they even put any up on youtube.11/25/2014 - 8:36pm
Andrew EisenI imagine they hope the clips they do host (some of which are rather long) are enough to entice viewers to watch the show on whatever channel it airs on.11/25/2014 - 5:54pm

Matthew Wilsondoes not shock me. people have been representing this as right vs left, but in truth its more like left vs even more left. better put is social libertarianism vs liberal moralism.11/25/2014 - 2:36pm
