Sorry no, we don't do this as Desura keys automatically give out Steam keys too (a decision I kinda regret now for this reason).  Thanks for reminding me though I need to reduce the price on Deusra now the Steam price has dropped.  I'll talk to them about a sale too, so keep an eye out.

I'll post them on release, or at least when I know for a fact when it's being released. I know it sucks having to wait and at this rate it seems it would have been a full year after it's release on Steam before we have the first patch. Frustrating for us too, all I can advise is you forget about P2 for a while and check back in maybe 2 months.

They did a couple patches and both ended up on Steam, dunno if another came out after tbh.

Or he could just be telling a story that this thread reminded him of, D is not a racist guy. Still, in the interest of balancing things out, I can hand on heart say that any terrible driving I've witnessed in the past has mostly been at the hands of a white male. Damn Caucasian drivers!

It's probably not going to make anyone happy to hear that we have achievements all but done, but something kinda unrelated is holding back the release of them (supporting Mac and Linux is fantastic but man sometimes I wish....)

No actual ETA, hopefully soon though.

I've been replaying Postal 2 (am on Friday), and have discovered that, while I couldn't bring myself to play without the Week In Paradise mod (and the slicing and dicing that allows), I don't get much satisfaction out of just killing everyone I see. Of course I couldn't bring myself to be completely pacifist, but once I had used the reaper to view people's internal organs a dozen or so times, the novelty simply wore off (as I'm sure has happened to most everyone). Yet I still find the game strangely compelling, with a certain rough-around-the-edges charm and ability to create euphoria. I'm going to try to pin down why P2 has stood the test of time for me; maybe others have already figured it out, and maybe I'm again being douchy by trying to be "deep", but I'll still jot these down.

FWIW we hope to (finally, like 8 years later) fix the dismemberment crashing that happens in AW and AWP, and then make AWP (minus fan made weapons) part of the main game.

*lots of positive comments about the game
Glad you got so much enjoyment out of it :)

We may just need to get used to the fact that Rick Hunter won't be coming back to Postal (for whatever reason), but his voice really helped to seal the deal. The smooth, sexy, charming, oddly down-to-earth (and comedic when necessary) delivery - "maybe I'm just jaded and cynical" - was a fantastic contrast to someone you'd view as doing nothing but shouting profanities and the Unabomber's Manifesto. Much of the writing for his character is quite good and clever, too, brought to life appropriately by Rick.

You'll not hear any argument from me on that or pretty much any P fan. Sadly, it's a Biz Dev decision and as Rick let them down pretty badly during PIII, they don't seem keen to work with him again. He did publicly apologies some years after which tbh is good enough for me, and not a reason to use another Voice actor who simply is not as good. But yeah, not my call right now.

In a nutshell, I think I more or less just want to see Postal 2 in a new, bigger town. Postal 3's idea of finding odd jobs to earn money is a good idea, but at the same time, it doesn't have the "average joe just running average errands" sense that P2 created.
Well, that is kinda what PIII was suppose to be. The whole odd job thing was suppose to be nothing more than the tutorial missions which you could play in any order from any of the many employment agencies in the world. Design always gets chopped as a project progresses, but the end result of PIII is hardly related to the original design at all.

- stick with the First Person view. (I guess in P2 you can technically switch, but I hope that the design will focus on First Person) I think that view is the better than third person because of the sense of "connection" the player can get by looking through Postal Dude's eyes (like how the camera zooms into his head at the start of each new day). Third person works when the player needs to easily see what's going on around him in all 360 degrees (like with GTA in the cars), but I don't think it works well for Postal.

Back when PIII started I was new to RWS so sadly didn't have the sort of voice I might have now, but I never liked the third person idea at all.  The project lead really wanted to mix it up, and thought it would look better in advertising ect (as PIII was suppose to be a 360 game after all).  Of course, the game never came to console and the cover mechanics are not only totally pointless (you can strife gunfire super easy) but were really badly done. Also many of the planned features to take advantage of being a TPS never made it into the game.  PIII would have been a better game by default in first person.

*lots of other good ideas I generally agree with*

I'm actually going to stop responding for a second purely because sadly right now, we are not making a full P game (although there is a stepping stone project in the works, we are active).  In a years time when this said smaller project is out feel free to bump this thread as we might well be thinking of a 'real PIII' by then.  For now, thinking about what could be is kinda distracting, but when we do announce something more on our current project, feel free to drop by and start a new thread for ideas ;)

Technically Steam even though the price has now been reduced, and you also get a better version of the game (which is still being worked on and patched). 

That said if want to own a fudge pack, then totally order one of those and I'll hook you up with a Steam key for both games.

Honestly it's been so long since I even used a CRT monitor I can't remember if I preferred them or not. I got myself a Dell IPS monitor 3 years ago and it's fantastic.

I kinda like how it looks. Smaller than the original PS3, flat topped so I can stack if needed. The main thing is though that it's quiet, which I'm sure it will be.  I've not read anywhere yet but I do wonder if the power brick is external this time to help make the console smaller and cooler.

who cares lol

Me! Oh so much.

I've been waiting for the next generation of toy boxes, and although I'll probably pick up a PS4 I'm more interested for what it means for PC gaming. What's exciting is that for the first time in years, the consoles will probably put out better looking games even compared to those with high end rigs, and the new baseline should also mean PC games quality should improve.  And it's awesome that devs no longer have to worry about different processor types between the consoles and PC as much, all being x86 based.

The PS4 itself I'll get due to being a big naughty dog fan (and indeed many first party Sony devs). So it's a good thing it ended up being the better console option by a mile anyway (unless you hate the PS4 pad or really like the Xbone's TV features).
