Thanks makailishi. Without some people making the full price perchance, we would have had to wait a lot longer to get the funds together for our next project, so you supported a good cause.
The Postal franchise is always a good bet, I'll always be a fan of RWS.
And now to rinse my mouth from that godawful
Postal 3 Russian Postal Spin-off.
Fixed it for you.

Video Games Live™
An old friend and long time POSTAL/Running With Scissors supporter Tommy Tallarico, has composed concerts based on your favourite non-POSTAL related video games (we don't feel left out, honest)
. These family friendly concerts are designed to introduce and entertain the audience with video footage, synchronized lighting, live action and original scores from some of the most popular and recognized video games (other than POSTAL, not bitter though)
Video Games Live™ (VGL) was founded in 2002 by video game composers and game industry veterans Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall under the parent company Mystical Stone Entertainment, LLC. Tommy & Jack have over 35 years experience in the game industry and utilize all of their personal contacts, friends and knowledge in the industry to help create the show. When creating a segment for VGL, the actual game composers, designers, creators, artists, producers and marketing teams all join in to help produce and ensure the highest quality. Their main goal for creating Video Games Live was to show the world how culturally significant and artist video games have become. Aside from being a celebration of the entire gaming industry, VGL also wanted to create a unique entertainment experience for the non-gamers and/or casual gamers as well. By utilizing incredible visuals and interactive segments in such a unique way, VGL is attempting to draw in an audience that may normally not be interested in attending a game music production.

History & Accomplishments
Video Games Live quickly became the biggest and most popular game concert in the world. The debut performance was launched on July 6th, 2005 at the world famous Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles with the LA Philharmonic. Over 11,000 people attended making it the biggest video game concert in the world. Most of the game music played (Halo, Sonic, Metal Gear Solid, Mario, Zelda, Warcraft, Tomb Raider, Myst, Kingdom Hearts, Tron, God of War, EverQuest II, Medal of Honor, Headhunter, Beyond Good & Evil, Advent Rising, etc.) had never been performed live. On October 30, 2005 they broke new ground once again by putting on the very first video game concert in Canada (Vancouver). They followed with groundbreaking first ever game concert performances in countries such as England, Brazil, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal, France, Taiwan and China. Video Games Live was also the very first American video game concert to perform in Asia (Korea). In 2007 they were recipients of a major industry award in Brazil for "Special Breakthrough Achievement" following their performances in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo the year before. On October 22, 2007 Video Games Live was the FIRST and ONLY show to sell out the Royal Festival Hall (Philharmonia Orchestra) since the refurbishment earlier in the year.
The Video Games Live: Volume One album (EMI Classics) was released worldwide in the summer of 2008 and debuted on the Billboard Charts at #10. It was the first video game compilation album to be released worldwide and by a major label. The Video Games Live: Volume One album received the “Best Soundtrack of the Year” and Editor’s Choice Awards from IGN.com as well as the BEST SOUNDTRACK ALBUM from the Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.).
Video Games Live was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records in 2008 for having performed the most video game concerts in a one year period (43). They are currently in the midst of breaking their record!
As part of the experience, special festival events surround the show for those who want to come early where guests will enjoy interactive game demos, a costume contest, prize give-a-ways, game competitions and the very popular meet-and-greet with top game composers and designers.
Hear your favorite video game music played live for the first time ever right in front of your ears by a full orchestra and choir.
See exclusive footage of your favorite games synchronized perfectly to the music and lights on giant interactive screens.
Theatrical Stage Show
Certain performances and segments will include live action, stage performers, special fx and a fully designed synchronized light show.
An Interactive Video Game
A handful of lucky audience members will be selected to come up on stage and actually play a video game while the orchestra plays interactively with them for a chance to win valuable prizes!
Each show features meet and greets with top composers and game designers in select cities as well as a costume event, gaming competitions and more! Unlike other concerts, the entire pre and post show festival is completely FREE OF CHARGE and open to ANY ticket holder.

POSTAL 2: Complete is 75% OFF and POSTAL 1 is 50% OFF on Steam This Week Only!
When POSTAL 2 first launched out of the Greenlight it was 10% off and you were like, "screw that I'm not going to support the development of any potential future POSTAL games or upgrades." Then it went on for 66% off, and you decided you wanted to keep your singles for the strippers. It even went on for 60% off just in case you were scared that the 66% off was a trick... Well now listen you
...errr.... thrifty lovely loyal fan, we give up! You can have POSTAL 2: Complete for 75% off this week on Steam
. If you are in North America, that's only $3.74 or $11.24 for the four pack! No more excuses, we can't make it any lower than that. We already had to tell the landlord that the check is in the mail, that should buy us some time. Also I don't think the staff here has noticed yet that their pay packets contained pictures of money instead of real money. So come on, help us out,
game development isn't cheap. The alcohol bills alone are staggering. Toploader is already having to ride the exercise bike to keep the lights on, he doesn't look like he can hold out doing that much longer.
While you are at it, go grab POSTAL 1 for 50% off
That's only $3.49! Buy them both and get a bonus*! It was recently patched to make it way better, even has achievements! You know you want to get it just to unlock all the achievements, who doesn't love achievements, only really jejune people, that's who. I bet you don't even know what jejune means. That means POSTAL and RWS are working hard to make you a more educated and sophisticated person, that's an added bonus we are throwing in free. We are too good to you considering you still have not gone over to Steam to buy either yet!
You already own both? Well that's nifty, you probably ninja'd them from our facebook or twitter drops. You probably should feel guilty about that and buy both games to give to your friends to make up for it. You have no friends? Leading Psychologist, Dr. Hans Lektor suggests that giving the gift of POSTAL to random strangers will get you many friends! We totally didn't just make that up. We read about him in the Paradise Times, he even invited us over for dinner. Swell Guy.
These sales will only last until May 20th
at 10 AM Pacific time so act now before you regret it.
Don't forget there are shirts to wear in the RWS Store
while playing POSTAL. It will make you look even cooler playing it, and even the NPCs will respect you more!* Bonus is in the form of satisfaction for supporting Running With Scissors by buying both our games. No actual bonus for buying both should be inferred. Jejune means
insipid....unsophisticated, uninteresting or boring.

Supporting the Life of Pixel
Pixel was a little green pixel who was tired of being part of the crowd so the ironic thing to do was seek crowd funding. Super Icon is trying to bring its Playstation Mobile game, Life of Pixel to everyone via their current Kickstarter Campaign.
For as little as £5.00 (which is around $8.00 USD once currency conversion is factored in) you can get yourself a DRM free copy of Life of Pixel for PC, Mac or your tablet with additional ways to play it possible depending on funding! But that is only the minimum you need to donate, if you are willing to donate a little more, there are all sorts of other bonuses you can get including being named an Associate Producer of the game! Just think, your name in the credits, be the envy of your friends. Wear that top hat and monocle with pride as you put Associate Producer down on your resume. It will look really good on your resume next to your Coronary Burger job!
Now that I have told you how you can get it for yourself, you are probably wondering what is it that you are buying, or perhaps, what it was you just blindly bought because this post told you to. If it is the latter, we really like you, and think you should visit the RWS Store
and buy at least one of everything there. Now back to the Life of Pixel. To quote the Kickstarter:
Life of Pixel is a game dedicated to the brilliance of classic gaming machines. The game is comprised of 72 levels, which are spread over 9 different game machines. Each machine features 8 levels choc-full of classic platform elements old and new; such as moving & destructible platforms, double jumps, gravity inversion (walk on ceilings) and lots of different enemies.
The aim is for the player to collect a certain amount of gems to open the EXIT door, with the focus on completing the level in the fastest possible time.
The current nine Classic 8-Bit Gaming Machines explored in the game are the:
- Atari 2600
- Sinclair ZX81
- ZX Spectrum
- Commodore 64
- Amstrad CPC464
- BBC Model B
- Nintendo GameBoy
- Sega Master System
- More to be added via funding!
So you may be asking, since they are already selling the game on Playstation Mobile, why don't they just fund the development of the game for the other platforms themselves? I'm glad you asked! Remember what happened with the Postal Dude in Postal 2? He needed money to buy milk among other things, and well, things don't always go as you plan. Despite the game getting great reviews, Life of Pixel still hasn't even paid for itself yet so Super Icon is currently short on funds. Super Icon needs the money to help develop the game even further since they are not even remotely finished with it yet and also wants to make it more accessible for everyone. Super Pixel is only asking for £10,000 ($15,500ish USD) so they can make it easier for you to play it, and to give you more to play. Do you even own a Vita? I know I sure don't! I don't even own a tablet! So getting it released on the PC is something I would like to see happen! Help get it released on your favorite system too by supporting their Kickstarter campaign

Mike's Tech Talk on KLPX's Frank Show
Our Mike is back in the studio with Sherm and Tic-Tac for another broadcast of KLPX's World Famous Frank Show
. Some of you may have heard Mike J's tech talk on there before, and those of you that haven't can check out the archived clips as well as the latest instalment by clicking the banner above.
In this edition of Tech Talk you can hear twenty minutes of Mike's opinion on Google Glass
, iPhones vs. Android phones, jailbreaking phones, Google Now
, and hear listeners call in to ask about 3D Printers
, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Nexus 4.
Ladies join in to listen to Mike's "sexy sultry" voice while he wears his ultra tight Official Running With Scissor's t-shirt
Gentlemen be envious of how much your ladies are enjoying mentally picturing Mike and the sound of his voice instead of you.
For those of you that were too enamoured listening to Mike, here is a quick summary:
- Google Glass probably would cause you to walk in front of a speeding bus, but you would look cool doing it.
- iPhones are getting more love from Google than their Android counterparts.
- Hacking phones is naughty fun.
- Google Now is putting Siri out to pasture.
- 3D Printers can make 3D copies of things... that should have been obvious.
- An Octocore and Jellybean in the Galaxy S4
- That guy's phone is alright!

Those SteamGifts ads look really cool.
I'd love to say I put hours of work in to them, but they are system generated and just modified to suit our forums. They update themselves too.

This Week in Paradise
Well look at that, follow through! Time for another
instalment of This Week in Paradise!
Since the last This Week in Paradise quite a few things happened, but here are some of the more interesting ones.
First off there is a new Postal Babe, Joy Plea$ure
. You can click that link to be taken to the forum post containing her interview as well as the pictures (nope those RWS signs won't come off no matter how much you pick at your screen).
Gamexotic posted the history of RWS.
Unlike History class, you are unlikely to fall asleep while learning about our history (because unlike your teachers, we are not afraid to use cattle prods...and may just use them for the heck of it even if you don't fall asleep).
The RWS website had a bit of facelift and actually looks more like a website! Nice scrolling boxes, handy featured areas, all those nice social buttons have relocated to an area and are just begging you to click them.
Postal 2 was on sale for 60% off, but that is over now. If you missed that, we are giving you another opportunity to win Postal 2
, along with a chance to win Postal 1
. All you need to do is join the Official Steam Group
, then click those links.
The last bit of news is that we had a successful run of a Rafflecopter giveaway, and we will likely use that again for future giveaways. Congratulations to Heavy M for winning the Postal 2 Complete Steam key!
That's it for this week, stay tuned for another exciting TWiP coming to a RWS Forum near you....eventually!
