Saints Row IV banned in Australia over alien anal probe

Sure, it’s not strictly relevant to us here in South Africa, but I’ve always wanted to put “alien anal probe” in a headline and it’s not like opportunities to do so are that frequent.

The game has been refused classification down under (and effectively banned from sale) because according to the Australian Classification Board a “a visual depiction of implied sexual violence that is interactive and not justified by context” is a no-go.

Visual depictions of not-so-implied physical violence that are interactive and not justified by context (basically, everything else) are presumably still totally okay, so that’s nice.
