Fallout 3 censored in Japan

According to our friends at Insert Credit, BethSoft Japan has announced that mega hit Fallout 3 will be toned down when it reaches the Land of the Rising Sun. As you could probably imagine, that means trimming some of the violent kills and head explosions. But it also means completely eliminating a mission that allows you to destroy the town of Megaton with a nuclear bomb, for reasons you can probably piece together.

Usually, we're anti-censorship, but we kind of see where Bethesda's coming from on this one. What do you think?
