Postal III: New Footage, Little Controversy

Postal III has been a touch delayed. In development since before 2006, rockpapershotgun first mentioned it in 2008 when it was revealed it would include a badger as a gun. A couple of months later, during 2008′s Leipzig, the most remarkable video of footage was released, with the developer apparently not too impressed with his own game. Jump forward another year, March 2009, and rockpapershotgun had a new trailer showing some third-person action. Yet another year goes past, little is heard, and that brings us to now. Two new trailers have been released, and they are of course below.

I wasn't sure, because I thought they said they had no plans to bring it on the PS3.

"XBC: Considering that this is a next-gen title, are there any plans to port
this to the PS3?

VD: I think its time we reward MS and the Xbox community. The bottom line is that MS actually supports PC gaming -- that's not what Sony does.

SW: I think Sony's charter has a clause that says something to the effect of: "and there shall never be, under any circumstances whatsoever, any Running With Scissors games, EVER on our systems." Of course, I could be misquoting that, cause I'm a little stoned right now. "

Postal III Drags Its Carcass Onto Steam

Gamesta.com sniffs out the trash with the quiet release of Postal III onto Steam. After debarking online late last year, the tasteless shooter romp is now also getting its amazing 25 Metacritic score onto the Valve digital platform. It also features the likenesses of Ron Jeremy in a Mario suit and a guy dressed like genitalia. That's classy.


GameArena: Postal 3 Review

GameArena: Postal 3 intends to offend. It aims to misbehave. It's the cool kid in class, making fun of the teachers behind their backs while everyone laughs under their breath. Like Billy Madison in the ninth grade, Postal 3 is so convinced of its own importance that it runs with the same banal humour it has always used - this time incapable of even an ounce of wit or charisma.

Unlike Billy Madison though, there doesn't ever seem to be a moment when Postal 3 realises what it has become - and so it just continues its embarrassing attempts at "trolling" people who probably couldn't care less about it.

Game Informer - Postal III Review: Offensive For All The Wrong Reasons

Game Informer - From its previous two iterations and the infamous Uwe Boll-directed film, Postal has gained a reputation for being a franchise that runs down the limits of good taste before backing up, climbing out of its truck, and taking a leak on the remains. If you have the ability to be offended by a joke, the team over at Running With Scissors will figure out a way to make it happen. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; popular shows like South Park thrive on a similar brand of button-pushing humor. The difference is that the people behind Postal III don’t have the writing ability to back up their gutter-dwelling mouths. As it turns out, they also don’t have the design or programming chops to create a stable game.
