I remember reading somewhere that Australia got R18+ rating a while ago. What happened to that?

 

We did, but we still have a classification process that is apparently run by people that, if they find content in a game objectionable, can refuse to classify the title (effectively banning it)

Yeah, and they decided an "alien anal probe" weapon was too far, so that's what they want cut or changed.

I import all my games anyway so I guess it doesn't effect me all that much.
