    First off, do not lecture me on bullshit as I know about it far more than you do, being a farmer.

    Second, that is not in any official RWS product, but rather a third-party mod. Even "hot coffee" had some developer input from the GTA guys, but Fag Hunter has nothing to do with RWS.

    And of course there is the whole other issue that you do not have to piss on cops or toss molotovs, but that is a separate point.

    EDIT: A good read on Postal, if anyone is up for it: http://web.archive.org/web/200502141...opic.php?t=629

    I've actually read that before while considering buying Postal 2 and looking at the series as a whole. Just reread it again to make sure I didn't miss anything. It seems to say the same as most here have said, Postal 3 is a mess that shouldn't of happened and not worth buying.

    RWS disowned it and refuse to endorse it or even sell it through their own site. They treat it as an unofficial spin-off of Postal 2 instead of as its proper successor. Also worth noting RWS seem intent to do another installment to the series in-house this time which I look forward to.

    Akella's game has shown up on most major gaming sites' worst game lists. There will be nothing missed if they never get it ported and even if they do I have no plans to waste money on it.

    I'm looking forward to giving this one a try at some point. Just finished the main portion of Postal 2 the other day and it was a lot of fun, even if it had some flaws. Down to the last few missions now on Sunday in the Apocalypse Weekend expansion. The expansion is shorter and a bit more linear than I would of liked, but still a fair bit of fun and insanity to be had. A few other Postal series fans I have talked to have highly recommended the first game, but the 3rd is almost universally reviled, so I don't mind that one not making it to Linux.

    For those who don't own it yet, now is the time to get Postal 2, 66% off atm, but the sale is ending in about an hour and a half. I found it to totally be worth the ~$5 sales price, it took me about 24 hours to just get through the main storyline as I kept running around looking for secret areas and messing around with the townsfolk and robbing the bank every day, lol.

    Awesome

    Where would Linux gaming be without Ryan Gordon. Give the guy a hand.

    I don't know if there was something for Unreal (apart from more or less official patches and additional renderers), but there was a project called Jagged Alliance Stracciatella once.

    Postal III is not coming to Linux ever, as RWS does not even own the rights to it and has officially disowned the title. The fact that Larabel could not even do some basic research on this fact is just totally embarrassing. They can not even update the Windows version, remove the DRM, or release the modding tools. They do not own the rights to it anymore.

    Says someone who has probably not even played the games. There is actually a lot of depth here, and only the arrogant or ignorant refuse to see it.

    If you want to get angry at "exploitation" games, there are a lot worse options than Postal anyway...

    Postal 1 is not a 3D shooter. It's a top-down isometric shooter (more like Alien Breed). It's also the best game in this series IMHO :-).
