On this week's episode of Secret Code, every time Danny and Johnny massacre 15 people in Postal 2, they show off an indie game.

so instead of picking the NEW generation postal 3 because its sht they had to go all the way back and play this one. Says a lot about heaps of this generation of games, that you actually have to go back 5 years to have fun again. Theyll be playing final fantasy 7 next not FF12 or 13.
I actually love FF12. The main complaint about it is the Gambit system being a bit complex. I actually think it was a great idea, a extra dose of strategy in the game.
So apparently I'm behind in the times...When did they change the name from "Escape From Mount Stupid? And why? Not that I'm upset about this or anything. Juuuuuuuuuuust curious.
Postal 2 was released in 2003 if I remember correctly and I loved it. Postal 3 is out now and I can't wait to get it.
@WizOfToys Believe me, you can. Postal 3 is the crappiest game you've ever seen. Don't buy it just play the old one one more time.
I wish you played another game.
You could have played MW3 or B3 online, which are better than this game.
@DR-ZMBK Meh, debateable. But no matter, going a little retro is more fun... even though this game came out like 8 or 9 years ago.
If you think this postal is good you need to get the a week in paradise mod. It adds like 400 weapons, more gore and a LOT more cheats. It makes regular postal look boring. From chainsaws and shrukens to dual automatic pistols and launchers that shoot zombies. you need that mod if you like postal.
am i a terrible person if i started laughing when they said when they kill 15 people they'll show an indie game. Lord help me i'm disturbed lol
Ah... I remember when Erik Wolpaw gave this game a 4.8 and said it has terrible gameplay. This game was funny so what does he know.
(I am of course just meaning this as a sort of satire as Erik is himself very funny as well and yes he wrote dialogue for the game Portal).
The great thing about Postal is that it allows you to do all those horrible things but doesn't tell you to, you're the sicko. The levels of the game always start out dull and normal with missions like buying milk at the store, cash your salary check etc. and it's always other people who turn the situation into violence. Postal therefore was a hell of a lot deeper into the philosophical terrain of virtual killing and antisocial behaviour than all the wannabe realistic shooters yet is slandered as a childish and brutal piece of garbage that we need to be protected from.
Yay for Offspring Fling, it's the only game I can remember that went for the old style early 90s TV ad and nailed it in every way.
Awesome show as ever! keep it up Danny! Hopefully we will see some more Escape From Mount Stupid stuff
I remember when the Postal 1 demo came out, I was still living with my parents. I had to alt-tab out of the game every time they came into the room so they wouldn't see or hear people crawling on the ground begging for help and bleeding from the eyes. Well, its been 15 years and I still haven't killed anyone in real life......but hey there's always next year.
@kuda001 What makes you think we'd need to? I guess some sites might have an issue with stuff like this, but not us buddy.
@dannyodwyer Would CBS allow such a thing? It's funny as hell but your literally pissing on people before shooting their heads off with a shotgun with the ever plausible 'cat-silencer' attachment.
@dannyodwyer im pretty sure the site used to... i remember a time when swearing and things like that where a BIG nono on the site...
Starforge seems pretty good,i will try out,and poor kitten getting bullets showed in it's ass and then launched off :(
