If You Fail Once Row, Row Again…Fruitlessly
Well it happened again folks. The Australian Classification Board reaffirmed their decision to refuse Voltion's upcoming Saints Row IV classification. The reason? Once again it's that the game contains a mechanic that incentivizes drug intake with in-game rewards and boosts.

One wonders if the Australian people's struggle for the ACB to include the R18+ rating for games was all for naught. Sound off below.
