Zombie protestors infest Sydney to support violent video games

Gamers dress up as zombies to raise awareness about the lack of an R18+ rating for video games in Australia

Aussie gamers will dress as zombies next week to raise awareness about the lack of an R18+ rating for video games in Australia.



The protest will begin at Hyde Park Fountain on March 27 and lumber through Sydney, informing the public of the need for a higher classification rating, and causing hysteria in others.



The history of lobbying for an R18+ games classification is long with lobby groups failing for a decade to convince the Federal Government to introduce the measure.



Video games are banned from sale in Australia if they exceed the maximum M15+ classification. Gamers and industry advocates say a higher rating will prevent the sale of violent games to minors and allow put Australia's law on par with other countries including the US, the UK and New Zealand. Opponents argue exposure to violent media causes aggression within participants.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
