Oh yeah, and the next Postal game should include a day where you go to the HQ of Akella to sue them.

If you're taking women on dates in  a video game, you are spending too much time alone.

Not really, I have a girlfriend and friends in real life, I don't really spend much time on games.

I kinda based on some GTA features by mistake, but hey, Akella made a bigger mistake.

New features are nice and all but keep I wouldn't want to have it really, REALLY different from Postal 2. Of course it should be more advanced in a couple ways but adding in stuff like vehicles - girlfriends... Postal isn't really supposed to be a life simulator imo. You can't just shove in random features from other games that come to your mind. developing games also takes time folks  :P

Also, whenever you start a game off with a list of "key-features" that you want to have in a game, the project most likely fails. Planning a game works different, you have to describe the experience and not just key-features - maybe I will get into more detail later. But just one example: What's the purpose of the girlfriend? Is she just a time waster? Is she actually required in missions? Oh yeah, if you have to watch out for her health and shit that would be annoying as fuck, just like going out with her every single fucking day. Same with the vehicles: What's the point of having those? Also think about limitations

I know that these ideas have already been scrapped but you have to think about features before suggesting anything, this above was just an example   O:-)

I put a line in front of those features so why do you even mention them?

I do want something that feels like Postal 2 but with things that could improve an already great game, yes I went a little too far with the cellphone, cars and such but the rest of the features are not bad at all and are actually rather interesting in a Postal game, you can't just have a clone of Postal 2, we have to move on with the time and make some small changes that can improve the game.

I already explained why I mentioned them.
"What are really necessary changes?" I asked myself - you also have to keep the style of the game in mind. You on one hand want the game to be Postal One-ish dark and on the other hand features were suggested that do not fit into that setting at all...
I may sound a bit harsh with this but this is how it simply works.

I would just want to have a more open world, I found it great that you could go into pretty much every house and fuck shit up. Breaking into a house was way too easy though. Would also be nice if you could grab or push humans away for either self defense or torment.
I also think that the media needs to have a bigger role in Postal. Like some really stupid news agency or people protesting because their favourite tv show got cancelled and all that shit. First world problems~

Having a mix between the Postal 1 darkness and Postal 2 humor is still possible with the features I mentioned.

Why just sue them, this is Postal! We have already established that we nuke vile publishers!
