Caption says it all:

"It's understandable really. If you've never played a videogame, this probably looks exactly like one."

Their drive for sensationalism was so great they they forgot to look for the pterodactyl in the room :D

Picture has been removed, easy mistake to make, search for a screenshot.

 

However, I dont see whats funny about child porn. Hopefully the game will get a ban and they will be fined.

It's not child porn as such. It's a case of the three characters in question are supposedly under 18 and in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, under 18 is considered a child and that's what ABC are jumping on.

 

And if you didn't see the pic it's the photoshopped pterodactyl

Its not child porn in UK law, it is in australian law, for example a cartoon of bart simpson having sex would be classified as child porn in australia and would carry the same sentence as watching real children. Its the depection of children in sexual situations that is illegal there, not the format you chose to publish your child pornography on.

 

Also the age is 18 in the UK too, however it does not apply to cartoons or games, its not to do with being considered a child, 18 is the age across the modern world, thats why most sites come with 18+ not 16+ Unless you think you can take photos of girls aged 16 like that and post them online on a uk server and website?

right direction for what, cartoons showing child sex or photos of up under-age girls skirts?

 

I'm sure someone can hook you up, I remember a young girl was on the forum before and grown men were telling her she was pretty and had pretty eyes, and flirting with her, So I'd say they will private message you the details.

Manga. I said it before, that and Anime survives through things like little school girls being represented as objects of desire.

Well certain parts of anime and manga do exploit this loophole.. But I wouldnt say it was anything other than a sub section, I've never seen it in anime or manga despite watching lots and lots, but I do know it is there.

 

I think it should be banned here too tbh, gotta be something wrong with the people into it.

I see the PR people are doing a pretty good job pushing the sales figures on this one.

Yet Australia still allows 15 year olds to play games rated 18 in the rest of the world (if they're not banned).
