    RWS outsourced to a Russian studio because they knew they couldn't be bothered to develop it themselves.
    Running With Scissors outsourced the development because the RWS team in its current state is nearly non-existent. They just didn't have the resources to make the game by themselves. The Postal 3 credits only list about nine people and one dog mascot for RWS, and of those, their writer Bill Kunkel and their mascot Champ have both passed away within the last year.

    That isn't to say RWS didn't have an impact on the game's development. They did all of the writing, had a concept artist that defined the look for the game, and they handled and recorded all of the English voice acting. However, the actual implementation of these ideas fell on Trashmasters, the Russian studio that carried out the physical game creating work. Any faults in the gameplay (which are being largely overblown due to a lot of bandwagoning right now) falls on them as RWS can't do much at this point other than send a bunch messages overseas saying "fix it" in Russki or whatever and hope their pleas don't fall on deaf ears.

    It really is an unfortunate scenario for Running With Scissors as they're among the few ever-dwindling number of game developers (or remnants thereof, in RWS's case) still around that dare to make games according to their own wishes rather than for maximum profit potential. They fought tooth and nail to make Postal 2 and the story is no different with Postal 3. Of course, the circumstances obviously weren't as ideal this time. They're isn't down for the count just yet, but it will be a sad day if one of the last companies that gives a crap about their games and their fans goes under. They simply don't make them like Running With Scissors anymore.

    Honestly the writing and terrible outdated/low brow humor was a lot worse than the gameplay. Which is saying a lot because the gameplay was horrible.

    then why the fuck did they make Postal 3?
    if they gave a crap about their games and their fans, they wouldn't put out this awful shit.

    I haven't played Postal 3, but I remember a lot of people not liking the low brow humor of Postal 2.
    I doubt Postal 3's humor is as bad as the women getting raped by aliens in DNF.

    Some people like Postal's humor, some don't.

    Edited:

    What I mean is the humor in P3 radically different than it was in P2?

    I wouldn't call them duller than Postal 2, because 3/4ths of all the jokes/one-liners are the exact same as Postal 2.

    I don't think I ever laughed once at Postal 2 except for the initial absurdity of some of the weapons and mechanics.

    Could of been better if RWS personally worked on. But I believe they are planning a HD Remake of Postal 1 that won't be the same russian developers it seems.

    It feels and plays like an "average" Half Life 2 mod, not a standalone game AT ALL and not to mention the price. This is just horrible.

    Anybody want to explain what's bad about it? I was really looking forward to it, because Postal 2 is one of my favourite games, just great for stress relief. So what's so bad about this?

    I'd buy it if it were a reasonable price. Maybe 20$. Hell, 30$. 50$ is just expensive and this game has been getting awful reviews.

    Honestly, Postal 3 was pretty much exactly what I expected from it. I just wish that you could free roam and such during the main story as you could during Postal 2, and that there were the simple pseudo-RPG elements from Postal 2.

    I have to agree, the controls were just atrocious in Postal 1, though I did like all the hand drawn art in the game, it had a cool style to it.

    Oh I can see its there, and I haven't even played it. However, it's horrendously outdated and is executed very poorly.
