Left 4 Dead 2 'Banned' in Australia, Refused Classification 400°
September 18, 2009 // 5:02 pm - While the Australian government dawdles on changes to the country's classification guidelines, games continue to be "refused classification" on the grounds they exceed the maximum rating of MA15+. The latest game on the chopping block? Left 4 Dead 2.

Ikkitousen: Shining Dragon Banned by ESRB for Skimpy Outfits 400°
May 22, 2009 // 10:00 pm - The makers of the anime fighting game Ikkitousen: Shining Dragon must be very sad today, because the ESRB has banned the game.

Most anime games are renowned for girls in skimpy outfits such as sailors or school girls, but Ikkitousen: Shining Dragon takes it one step further as the outfits rip and deform as fights progress, showing more of the girls' bare body.

In a statement, the ESRB said the following:

This time round, the game in question is called NecroVision; an FPS set during World War I that pits players against demons, vampires and zombies, as well as the obligatory waves of German soldiers. The dishing out of the refused classification stamp...
