The game includes a weapon referred to by the Applicant as an “Alien Anal Probe”. The Applicant states that this weapon can be “shoved into enemy’s backsides”. The lower half of the weapon resembles a sword hilt and the upper part contains prong-like appendages which circle around what appears to be a large dildo which runs down the centre of the weapon. When using this weapon the player approaches a (clothed) victim from behind and thrusts the weapon between the victim’s legs and then lifts them off the ground before pulling a trigger which launches the victim into the air. After the probe has been implicitly inserted into the victim’s anus the area around their buttocks becomes pixelated highlighting that the aim of the weapon is to penetrate the victim’s anus. The weapon can be used during gameplay on enemy characters or civilians. In the Board’s opinion, a weapon designed to penetrate the anus of enemy characters and civilians constitutes a visual depiction of implied sexual violence that is interactive and not justified by context and as such the game should be Refused Classification.
Most people in Australia did not support the regular use or legalisation of illicit drugs in 2010. Three in five (60.2%) people aged 14 years or older had never tried an illicit drug.
In 2010, one in four people aged 14 years or over in Australia (24.8%) supported legalising the personal use of cannabis. This was an increase from 2007 when about one in five people supported this (21.2%), but not as high as the level of support in 2004 (27.0%) (AIHW 2011a).
Very few people in Australia approve of regular, adult use of illicit drugs [other than cannabis], with most types of drugs approved of by less than 2% of people aged 14 years or over.
