Mysterious Seventh Title Banned in AU During 2009 Named

October 22, 2010 -

Seven titles in all were Refused Classification in Australia during 2009, and while the public was aware of six, the name of the seventh banned game is only coming to light now.

The Refused-Classification website names the seventh banned title as Enzai: Falsely Accused, a 2002 Japanese anime-style game released in Japan in 2002 and in the U.S. in 2006. The game was submitted for classification by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) with no-name in order to thwart any undue attention being showered upon it. The name of the title was revealed in the Classification Board’s Annual Report.

Here’s why it was given an RC rating:

In the Board's view this computer game warrants an RC classification as it contains depictions of sexual violence that depict matters of sex and violence in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that it should not be classified. It also contains descriptions and depictions of child sexual abuse involving a person who is, or who appears to be, a child under 18 years.

Refused-Classification notes that while no game submitted by a distributor has been banned yet in 2010, another game submitted by the AMCA was. The name of that title will also remain unknown unless the Classification Board decides to name it in next year’s report.

American cover art for the game, which appeared to receive the rarely-utilized “Adults Only” (AO) rating stateside (though it doesn't show up in the ESRB database), is shown.

The other six titles Refused Classification in 2009 were: Necrovision, Sexy Poker, Risen, Left 4 Dead 2, Crimecraft, And Alien Vs. Predator.


Thanks Ryan! aka “Mr. Australia“

Banned outright in Australia and banned store/console wide in the US. I guess its a digital download PC only game or sold from the website.

i wouldn't say banned store wide, i've seen dozens of these games (not this one in particular though as i haven't really looked much) floating in various "novelty" shops that sell such.

they usually hide'em behind the counter FYI.

also there are some sites that sell them disc and DD, J-List is one such site, and is based in San Diego somewhere IIRC.

console wise, IMO that where the DRM fiasco and "homebrew" issues come into play, IMO its like buying a comp and being told what you can and can't use it for, hence i'm still a PC game at heart no matter what, we get the raw end at times, but we can still hack the hell outta the games and get some reward for our efforts (such as working Zeta Prime in WFC despite the total drop on support by Activision)

Wonderkarpyeah. even being pro gg, I still dont boycott. Its stupid. I still go to Kotaku. Though I have a BS filter up. But I am addicted to their deals. 11/26/2014 - 9:36am
MaskedPixelanteI dunno, it looks like a Modern Warfare clone. Probably because the link you posted links to a screencap from Modern Warfare 2.11/26/2014 - 9:34am

WonderkarpAntiGG people on twitter are calling for a boycott of an Indie game created by somebody on the "Blocklist". telling people not to vote for it on Steam Greenlight. Its a cute game about plants! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=3408771011/26/2014 - 9:22am
NeenekoWhich ties into a rather vicious cycle of mutual distrust.11/26/2014 - 8:28am
E. Zachary KnightNot really a suprise, but race correlates heavily with how one views the cops. http://reason.com/blog/2014/11/25/polling-finds-a-stark-racial-divide-in-p11/26/2014 - 8:22am

Papa MidnightMatthew Wilson: Considering ContentID, I can't imagine that would necessarily be a problem for HBO.11/25/2014 - 10:19pm
Matthew Wilsonthey know if they dont, someone will.11/25/2014 - 8:40pm
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
MaskedPixelanteIt's odd that these videos are missing from the official Last Week Tonight page.11/25/2014 - 5:51pm
Andrew EisenRelevant or not, the guy's pretty darn entertaining.11/25/2014 - 4:58pm
