PostSubject: First impressions of Postal III: A Rant   Sat May 19, 2012 2:43 pm

Before I start this... I would just like to say that I am a huge fan of Postal II. I loved that game to death and I've been waiting for 10+ years for this sequel. I know most, or all, of you don't give a shit... but I figured I would post anyway.

Begin Postal III rant:

Postal III fucking sucks. It's nearly unplayable. The controls really aren't that great and it's hard as all hell. The first mission of the game you have to clean up tissues that people are cumming in at a porn shop... and you have to use those to repel rioters. Well it takes a whole hell of a lot to make them leave so you have to keep leaving where they are and refilling. All the while they're tearing up the store and beating up the owner. Both of which you're supposed to protect. It wasn't too bad but took me two tries to finish it. Then the next mission you're supposed to be picking up diseased cats... only there are Asians chasing you the entire time shooting you with guns and chopping away at you with machetes. They're on your heels the whole time so it's kind of fucking hard to stop and pick up the cats like you're supposed to. That took me a few tries. I'm currently on the third mission... I'm supposed to be protecting a porn star... and my only weapon is a taser. I've spent like 10+ minutes just using the taser on the people attacking her... but yet more people come whenever she kills them. And if you kill them the police come in and basically have you surrounded. They shoot you to shit. Suuuure, I've tased cops, then killed them and took their pistols... but they still shoot me to shit before I get anything accomplished. I have no fucking idea what my objective is... I'm protecting the bitch but apparently I'm supposed to be doing something else because the mission won't end. I've done that one several times. Not to mention my laptop is actually pretty awesome... yet I have to turn the graphics down way low in Postal in order to get a decent frame rate. Have you seen Postal III? It's not the greatest game graphically and I'm getting a shitty frame rate. But Arkham City? I can run that bitch on the highest settings and everything runs smooth. And also, the game occasionally just fucking freezes so you've got to force quit. I'm thinking I'm just going to have to look up an invincibility cheat just so I can manage to play the game... and I really didn't want to do that. But maybe THAT will salvage the experience. I mean yeah, it's pretty funny and what you're doing is stupid and enjoyable... but not quite like this. The fun gets ruined pretty quickly due to the issues I stated. We'll see. Very disappointed with this sequel so far. Very big step back from Postal II. And as a side note, it's not open world like Postal II. You complete a mission, watch a cut scene, then it puts you in the next area with your next objective to complete. You can't just roam around. Unless, of course, you beat the game. Then you get a free roam mode.

Running with Scissors stopped selling Postal III on their store, because they are not satisfied with the end product. Instead, they're now selling the "Fudge Pack", which has their other Postal games all combined together. It seems pretty neat; it supports Windows, Mac, and Linux, and it's not expensive at all for a physical product.

I didn't read any of this

I could immediately tell from the first videos of the game that this shit was gonna suck.
