Wot I Think: Postal III

By Alec Meer on January 26th, 2012.

I’ve been playing the oddly quietly-released latest third person action’n’ urban psychopathy game from Running With Scissors, Postal III. Needless to say, I wish I hadn’t.

I have a large tumbler full of Scotch (I know, I know, you’re supposed to use a tulip-shaped glass for the full effect, but the only Scottish person currently writing for RPS is Craig and he says “it offends me” of whisky, so I think I’m safe). I have a vaguely misanthropic attitude towards life, the universe and everything. I have a deep distrust of conventional employment. I have a low attention span. Oh look, there’s a magpie outside. It’s all black and white and… oh yes. And I have a copy of Postal III installed on my personal computer. I AM READY.

The Postal III Trailer Is Interesting

By Jim Rossignol on June 6th, 2011.

Yes.
I originally typo’d “Portal 3 trailer”. Imagine if this was the Portal 3 trailer.

It’s the Postal III trailer. NSFW.

Postal III Depicts Wanton Apple Theft

By John Walker on August 27th, 2010.

The wet soggy end of gaming.

I posted recently about the reappearance of Postal III – a game that’s seemingly been in development for seven years, and still hasn’t committed to a release date. I also pointed out that we’ve seen relatively little footage for a long time, and that which we have seen hasn’t really shown us much of the controversy that has made the series far more famous than it probably deserves to be. So thank goodness, eh, because a collection of new videos have finally arrived. They’re all collected by Gametrailers, and are below. And you should be warned, the footage contains apple scrumping.

Postal III: New Footage, Little Controversy

By John Walker on August 18th, 2010.

No new screenshots in three years. Sigh.

Postal III has been a touch delayed. In development since before 2006, we 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 we 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.

Badgering Us: Postal III Trailer

By John Walker on March 25th, 2009.

I've never trusted badgers.

I feel terrible breaking the relaxing silence with this, but here’s some new game footage of Postal III. Fire, shooting and badgers. And it’s got some awfully raucous music on it, you know the sort, all shouting and banging and you can’t make out the words. It’s beneath.

Postal III – Even The Devs Don’t Seem Impressed

By John Walker on August 21st, 2008.

BADGER GUN! HA HA HA HA HA! Sorry guys, shark gun beat you to it, by years.

This is pretty odd. Running With Scissors gave their “world exclusive” demo of the prison breakout mission from Postal III (NSFW) at Leipzig today, but with what appears to be some sort of contempt for their own game. In the video below you can see the game running, with a peculiarly frat-boy like commentary from RWS’ Mike J.

Postal III: Badger In Action

By Jim Rossignol on July 23rd, 2008.


Weapons that you have to feed seem to be something of a theme this week. Here’s the trailer for politically dubious murdersim, Postal III, in which the dev team (Running With Scissors) show off the use of their angry-badger weapon.
