So Postal fans, it looks like it's time to get excited! I recently got myself a copy of Postal 2 after being a fan of Postal 1 so this is good news!
I wonder exactly what it will add, supporting an old game like this with brand new content is very welcome and they are a developer well worthy of support.
Live a week in the life of "The Postal Dude"; a hapless everyman just trying to check off some chores. Buying milk, returning an overdue library book, getting Gary Coleman's autograph, what could possibly go wrong?
Blast, chop and piss your way through a freakshow of American caricatures in this darkly humorous first-person adventure. Meet Krotchy: the toy mascot gone bad, visit your Uncle Dave at his besieged religious cult compound and battle sewer-dwelling Taliban when you least expect them! Endure the sphincter-clenching challenge of cannibal rednecks, corrupt cops and berserker elephants. Accompanied by Champ, the Dude's semi-loyal pitbull, battle your way through open environments populated with amazingly unpredictable AI. Utilize an arsenal of weapons ranging from a humble shovel to a uniquely hilarious rocket launcher.
Collect a pack of attack dogs! Use cats as silencers! Piss and pour gasoline on anything and everyone! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!
Aggressive vs. Passive: POSTAL 2 is only as violent as you are.
One large non-linear world.
Explore the world and accomplish your errands at your own pace.
Interact with Non-Player Characters
Survival Mode: If you choose to play as a pacifist, you will still have to deal with the NPC's who may also go POSTAL!
Based on the Unreal Editor: Easy to use and very powerful, with many mods already available from the community.
Here is their funny trailer to get onto Steam:

I've had P2 Complete for about five months now. Like adolson, I just haven't made time to play it. In all honesty I'm overwhelmed and knee deep in Games I've bought for Linux. Regardless of what people say, there are plenty of Games for Linux and not enough time to play.
I thought I might gift a copy to my brother while it's on sale. Even though he is overwhelmed with Games also. Between Desura and Steam, I dunno what the hell people are complaining about when they say there are no Games. I mean really, Hardcore Gamers don't make but a small % of the market; the rest would be fine with their Phones or switching to Linux.
That's why I say, for most, Windows is simply a crutch that gets rationalized into usage. Hey! thanks for the Linux support Running with Scissors! =) I might be motivated enough to play it today with my brother
I think the best thing is, next years Steam Summer Sale should be flavorful with all the new titles coming out!. Hope you guys at RWS have some new stuff for us by then

I have been playing Postal 2 on and off since it came out-actually about two weeks ago I broke out the disks and installed it again-have been going M@D Crazy, if ya know what I mean-AW7 Rocks my Socks.
Can't wait for whatever DLC is coming, I'm a HUGE fan of RWS, and I know this is going to be BRILLIANT!
