A decision they were pressured into by prudish Australian officials. While this specific change boggles the mind, since the originals used fictional names as well, in principal it's bullshit on the part of both Australia and Bethesda.
In my opinion, just don't sell the game in Australia, or any other game for that matter. It won't be that big of a loss, really.
Bethesda were never pressured into doing anything. Explain to me exactly HOW Australian officials pressured Bethesda
into this decision? You can't, can you!?
They had the option to NOT sell it in Australia. But Bethesda realise there is a profit to be made. On top of that rather than produce two slightly different products (changing the name of a drug), they decided to cut corners and produce ONE! Sorry .... but this was a decision made by Bethesda .... and not by anyone else
As for your second comment, I'll ignore that is frankly it's just sour grapes.
Oh BTW ... if you still think it's "Australia's fault", feel free to send your disapproval to:Hon. Michael Atkinson
South Australian Attorney-General, Member for Croydonhttp://www.sa.alp.org.au/people/sa/atkinson_michael.php
He is the ONE person in Australia that is holding up an R18+ rating. In Australia, to change the rating system you need a unanimous vote of each state Attorney-General ... and he's the one stopping it. So if you REALLY want to blame anyone, send it his way.
But I still maintain it's Bethesda's decision.This comment was edited on Sep 9, 21:50.
