Smoking alien narcotics which give you superpowers also reportedly problematic.

Mark “Rockspider” Serrels over at Kotaku AU has dug up the official Classification Board report on why Saints Row IV was Refused Classification yesterday. It turns out the main reason for the decision is an “Alien Anal Probe” weapon the player can use.
“The lower half of the weapon resembles a sword hilt and the upper part contains prong-like appendages which circle around what appears to be a large dildo which runs down the centre of the weapon,” claims the report, clinically. “When using this weapon the player approaches a (clothed) victim from behind and thrusts the weapon between the victim’s legs and then lifts them off the ground before pulling a trigger which launches the victim into the air.”
The Board is also critical of what are apparently “alien narcotics”, which can be smoked to provide the player with superpowers — which you might think contravenes the use of rewards or incentives relating to drugs, but remember that Fallout 3 had fictional drugs and that was apparently okay. We’ll wait to learn more.
