    Valve doesn't give up without a fight..

    Valve is submitting 2 new versions of L4D2 to the australian review board. One "pussified" version, with cut down gore and such, and one full version they're hoping to clear.

    In other words, seems like australians will be getting L4D2 after all... One way or another.

    Yea, it's just a shame you'll be shooting teletubbies rather than zombies.

    "Newell confirmed that if the edited version is released, then the Australian version would receive an update if the appeal proves successful."
    - Kotaku "http://www.kotaku.com.au/2009/10/valve-appealing-editing-left-4-dead-2-for-aussie-classification/"

    So if our cut down version did get through, it would be updated to be like the normal anyway :p

    Also, for more on Gabe's trip, here's a view interview with Joe and Gabe in Aus :p
