Aaah, the Postal series. At once a paragon of tasteless humor and of gamers collectively banging their heads on desks with disgust, nobody can deny that Running With Scissors' oft-controversial series will always have a place -- however dubious -- in videogame history. So, who's up for a third installment? I know I am. With Uwe Boll's tenuous-at-best adaptation hitting cinema screens, news about Postal III coming to both PC and Xbox 360 couldn't be more apt.

Switching first person shooting for third person, free roaming adventuring, this second sequel sees Postal Dude entering the city of Catharsis, a city that sports eco-terrorists, Uncle Dave's Zealot Nuns (!) and, of course, the Taliban. Promised new weapons include the Harnessed Badger Saw and Chain Scythe, with more to be delivered. If the developers are to be believed, this latest installment won't be just a shoddily pieced together game that relies on toilet humor and terrorists to make a name for itself. Promising a "complex AI" and three moral paths to choose (the good, the bad and the insane) as well as being powered by Valve's Source Engine, Postal III might be trying to become a legitimate videogame in the eyes of the people. 

While we wait and see if Postal III can break the series' mold, take a peek at the small selection of screenshots below, and check out Akella's minisite. In the meantime, I'm going to quietly confess that I actually have some hope for this.

Band Saga looks like the Audiosurf of isometric shooter action

Generating gameplay using music might be one of my favorite things to happen in videogames in the last ten years. Though Audiosurf released six years ago, there still are not many games that utilize the functionality. Soon e...more
