Looking for Love on All the Wrong Continents


Apparently the Land Down Under isn't taking visitors from the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Australia's refusing importation of Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, the latest installment in the classic game series about a clueless-but-affable schmuck looking to score. The reason given is the game's sexual content, which is odd, because unless they've departed dramatically from the level of previous games, it's no more risqé than what you'd expect to find on, say, late night Cinemax. And, oh yeah, it's all CGI. Since I'm pretty sure Aussies haven't embargoed Jenna Jameson yet, that's a weird double standard. Can censors there possibly still, at this late date, be operating under the illusion that computer games are exclusively for (or, at any rate, should always be appropriate for) children?
