    The Mortal Kombat (banned in AUS)

    I was following right up until this bit. I'm either tired or there's a key grammatical error preventing my understanding... Are you saying that MK shouldn't be allowed into a Country as an MA15+ game, they need to allow an R rating and let it in under that; or MK shouldn't be allowed into the...

    Setting up a gaming server (1st time)

    Now I feel like an idiot. Answers no. I was running that test off of a way our of date wire-less card. I'll plug in tomorrow and run the test again. It fluctuates, as someone else was saying, depending on where the down is coming from, but I was sort of wondering why it rated so low when I'm...

    The Mortal Kombat (banned in AUS)

    So all that's stopping it is them basically just choosing what games should be allowed... there doesn't seem to be any adhering to any criteria or anything does there?

    The Mortal Kombat (banned in AUS)

    Why is it that some games get cut while others are let in when they all seem to have high gore? And while we're off topic, was the MK released as a PC game as well?

    Setting up a gaming server (1st time)

    ADSL here. I went to that speed test thing and it rated me as the following: ping = 42ms down = 7.27mbps up = 0.32 mbps Should I try running it at different times of the day to get an average? (running it 9pm on a saterday night - such as it is - is probably the worst time to have run it)...

    The Mortal Kombat (banned in AUS)

    Plague_Infected I'm pretty confident it'll be allowed then. You might say demand for Mortal Kombat is pretty high no?

    The Mortal Kombat (banned in AUS)

    Plague_Injected Is it that they're only interested in banning popular games? I mean, in saying that, a console is never launched with anything but sports or racing games, and companies like Sony and Nintendo never promote themselves in advertising campaigns with war or fighting games...

    The Mortal Kombat (banned in AUS)

    LuminaryJanitor Mm. I can't wait. Tudz Yeah Ninja Gaiden is the one I was bitching about to people before the Mortal Kombat. And how stupid, to think that people who want these games won't get them anyway, from other countries, the only thing they're currently achieving is making our economy...

    Setting up a gaming server (1st time)

    So. Say I wanted to set up a gaming server for me and a few of my friends over a long distance. What's the best way to achieve this (please be as elaborate and literate as possible). One of my old man's friends had achieved this with one of his friends via roof-mounted dishes pointing at...

    The Mortal Kombat (banned in AUS)

    So. Anyone here happen to be Australian, and very aggravated that it had been announced that Australia wouldn't be seeing the new version of Mortal Kombat? And if they decide to let it in, pretty sure it will be dulled a bit (less gore etc) to allow it, since AUS doesn't have an R game rating...

    I need a new PC game to play...

    If you don't mind an older game (will run excellently on a newer system) get AgeOfMythology + The Titans Expansion Pack. You'll find yourself spending all your hours playing it. Very addictive, and, like chess, keeps your brain good for strategies. I would verse you on multi-player but it...
