Postal 3 was the horrible game. Postal 2 was a fairly well polished FPS open world based on the ridiculousness of the Postal Dude..

I'm probably going to buy this

This brings back the feels. I'm down for a copy, but I'll hold off booting it up until they can smooth the corners out a bit.

Can't wait for the Civvie 11 video for the full release.

I did end up buying it back in October 2019. Played it a few times through the alpha phase, its gotten quite a bit better as we've gone. The Friday update was still a bit janky and I had to reload a few times because I got stuck in places I couldn't jump out of, but it's still a lot of fun. If you enjoyed Postal 2, this scratches that same itch. I hope to play it again when they implement co op, which is still on their trello board for implementation after early access.

Today I learned that not only is Postal 4 a thing, but that there was a Postal 3?!

Too bad the reviews are terrible for 3, are either worth trying?

Postal has always been an.... acquired taste.

Civvie likes it, so It can't be that bad.

No. Running With Scissors pulled the game from sale not long after it came out. It has all the worst gaming mechanics developed in the mid-00s combined in one game, along with bugs galore. Civvie made a video on it if you want to check it out.

i dunno, there's so many mass shootings now, i don't think an entire generation even knows what postal means.

A "mass shooting" is defined as an incident where there are at least 4 casualties. You don't even need any deaths. A brawl at a bar that results in people being shot can be defined as a mass shooting. According to the FBI there have been 10-20 mass shootings a year in the US since 1982. Those statistics don't even include gang shooting incidents and drive-bys. Mass shootings are not anymore common for the current generation than the were for last two. What's changed? The media has decided to sensationalize these incidents to extreme proportions in the past couple decades, so people perceive them to be more common than they really are.

Not disagreeing, but my point still stands, nobody under the age of 35 knows what "postal" means in reference to this game.

You would be more entertained reading up on what happened with the development of 3, than playing it. It's basically not official or canon. Running with scissors disowned it.

You're wrong. Postal 3 absolutely is an official installment in the series.

I did say basically, even if it exists. Curious that rws don't even list it then for purchase. Additional sources cover some of the story, but you'll have to dig deep to see all that went down with them and Akella. If running with scissors retconned it out with p2 dlc and p4, that really hurts it's position as official. https://postal.fandom.com/wiki/Postal_III

Canon and official don't mean the same thing at all.
By the way, I bought my copy of Postal 3 directly from Running With Scissors' website.
