I knew about this close to the Xbox 360 launch day. But it wasnt confirmed yet but I was excited and curious of to what limits they will take this extremely violent game to. You can check out the demo or buy the older version on its site somewhere. http://www.gopostal.com/new...
Man I cant wait to see how awesomely violent it will look on a next gen console. Postal 2 has been banned from alot of stores but you can just buy it online. Yea but I think they are going to push it to limits with Postal 3 also so expect some parents to be complaining about this one.

Dead Rising
Gears of War
Saint's Row
and now Postal (Although I know I'm leaving out alot more upcoming titles)

If you like violence, get a 360. :D

I have never heard of postal and i have never played, is it like GTA or what ?

...and was originally more of a spoof/tongue-in-cheek title, with over-the-top violence. It's apparently gained enough of a following, to make the leap to mainstream console gaming, with a much more sophisticated engine.

oh man, i loved Postal 2. It was really brutal. To the point where i could knock someones head off with a shovel, then kick it around and sometimes dogs woudl play fetch with the severed head. also you could use a gasoline can spread it around and throw the match and light everything on fire. PLUS! you could KILL GARY COLEMAN!


Postal 3: When Does Delisting Games Matter?

Justin from NoobFeed writes - Games like Postal 3 sometimes get delisted and disappear forever, but is this something that actually matters when the game is bad?

It's about preservation. Doesn't matter how bad the game, the movie, the book, the history was. It has to be archived, so that 10 years from now we can be like "oh yeah, this shite exists" and then again in 50 then 100 and then we can be like "this was what they were doing 100 years ago, how interesting"


Review: Postal 3 (New Gamer Nation)

The Postal games have always been somewhat of a mixed bag in terms of how they are received. The first two were not masterpieces by a long shot, but they have somewhat of a cult following. In case you haven't heard of the series before let’s bring you up to date, that's if you haven't already clicked off after realizing this wasn't a review for Portal 3. The first Postal game was released back in 1997 by American developer Running With Scissors (previously Riedel Software Productions of Spy vs Spy fame). A 3D isometric violent shooter that put you in the shoes of The Postal Dude, a guy pretty down on his luck that wants to slaughter everyone in town with a wide-array of weapons, it was pretty extreme at the time. The sequel released 6 years later, now a first-person affair in an open-world. Again as The Postal Dude, it's more of same except there were objectives added in the form of chores, such as buying milk from the grocery store or picking up your paycheck from work, and you could choose to go about it as a decent, upstanding citizen or you could just cause mass chaos. Anyway, while both games weren’t reviewed by critics too well, they were particularly fun for what they were.

Postal III Review - Gaming Nexus

From the review: "The Postal series of games have been primarily known for the controversy caused by their extreme levels of violence, disregard for graphic content, and exploitation of stereotypes. With the change from the Unreal to the Source engine, Running with Scissors had a chance to take the franchise beyond the simple foundations of bad humor and shocking imagery of past games. Unfortunately, Postal III continues in the tradition of its predecessors by containing generic gameplay, off-color humor, and an assortment of bugs that hinder the overall experience."
