The Brazilian government has banned the sale of Counter-Strike and EverQuest. Though originally banned in October as ordered by the Brazilian federal court, only now are the bans being enforced. Judge Carlos Alberto Simoes found the games to be “the subversion of public order” and “an attack against the democratic state and the law and against public security.” … Yeah, not really sure how he came to that conclusion either.
Currently we aren’t sure if the bans pertain to only the original titles or if CS: Source and EverQuest 2 are also affected. Being that the ban is only on the sale and not on possession of the games, there is still plenty of opportunity for sweaty nerds to pwn n00bs and create female elf characters.
