You're famous now, Asmodai (due to link above).
And you just know that the meat of the message is going to be lost in the fucking hoohah over the piracy comment...
I don't want to pirate the game. Fallout is one of my all time favourite franchises (even played Tactics fully) and I'm a big fan of Bethesda.
I really want to order a legal copy of the full product in my country and just go home and play my game. I'm a 30-something with plenty of disposable income.
But one man motivated by religion and a misguided concept that adult computer game entertainment should not exist because children might get access to it has chosen to stand in the way of that, for me and the rest of the Aus adult game players who might want to enjoy a graphic post-apocalyptic game...
And before I choose piracy I will, as I first posted, try to import the game from another source.
As for 15 mins of fame, as long as the message that this nanny state crap directly incites piracy (or at least makes people feel more justified about pirating) and importation of technically illegal software (you can get fined quite heavily for import of Refused Classification media) then I guess it'll be worthwhile...
Ironic that the upstanding Attorney General who is so very concerned with the moral well being of the country is currently being sued for defamation...
Mr Short said Mr Atkinson had been advised that Dr Cannon was still open to having a "sensible" discussion about the Attorney-General's public criticism of him last month. Mr Atkinson criticised Dr Cannon over his preparation of a statement of principles on sentencing, in which the veteran magistrate argued that prison overcrowding should be factored into any decision to send people to jail.
Mr Atkinson referred to Dr Cannon's reasoning as daft and delusional, and also questioned his understanding of the law.
If the action proceeds to court, it will be tracked with interest by Adelaide's legal fraternity, which has been in the state Labor Government's sights for opposing aspects of its aggressive law-and-order program.
Dr Cannon has not responded publicly to Mr Atkinson's attack, which has been condemned by a range of legal groups, including the Law Society of South Australia, the Australian Council for Civil Liberties and the Judicial Conference of Australia.
Mr Atkinson has said he will not back down. In the absence of a formal statement of claim from Dr Cannon, his spokeswoman last night declined further comment.
Mr Short said: "As we have not received a substantive response, we have advised him that we are preparing proceedings, and we have indicated that Dr Cannon is prepared to enter into sensible discussion about the issues. Mr Atkinson is aware of the concerns, and we have indicated to him that there are issues of damages, costs and an apology."
A fine moral example for the rest of the country. Fucking hypocrite.
