And it will ring soon, as 'POSTAL 2' in Stores April
is the press release announcing that "the single most controversial
and highly anticipated sequel in the history of videogames, will be in stores
April 14, 2003." Proud as ever of their naughtiness, Running with Scissors
provides the first ever game press release quote to use the "P" word,
as Vince Desi proclaims: "We live by our infamous motto, 'It's always funny
until someone gets hurt ... and then it's absolutely friggin' hysterical.' We
made POSTAL 2 for our fans -- not for politicians, parents or 'penis challenged'
critics." Here's a bit more on the outrageousness: "Bravely published
by Whiptail Interactive, POSTAL 2 brings a whole new sick and twisted
perspective to videogaming. Joining the Postal Dude on a crusade of carnage is
notorious TV star Gary Coleman, who romps through the brilliantly conceived
gamescape flanking graphically exploding heads, rivers of urine, vomit and
oceans of blood -- not to mention the occasional screaming cat being stuffed
onto the muzzle of a shotgun."
