Postal 4 Enters Steam Early Access

Matthew Byrd Oct 14, 2019

Postal 4 looks to continue the controversial legacy of the infamous Postal 2.

Controversial shooter series Postal is getting a sequel called Postal 4: No Regerts. Yes, that seems to be an intentional misspelling. 

Postal 4 is being developed by Running With Scissors and looks like about what you'd expect from a "classic" Postal title. In other words, you play as Postal Guy as he tries to make a little money. While it's possible to acquire money through honest means, the game will find ways to encourage you to utilize violence in order to get what you want. Much like Postal 2, the chaos will play out in a fairly open first-person format. 

There are a couple of noteworthy changes to the Postal franchise (or at least parts of it) with this entry, though. First off, the game is currently available via Steam Early Access in a very limited format. It's

Listen: Laverne Cox on ‘Sex and the City’s’ Troubling Transphobia and Why It’s Still Her Favorite Show
Emmy-nominated “Orange is the New Black” actress Laverne Cox isn’t just a fan of “Sex and the City,” she’s a scholar. Cox knows most of the HBO series’ episodes by heart, and can even list the various Emmys and Golden Globes that the show and its performers received over the years.

She admits, however, that the show stumbled in one disappointing way: Its depiction of transgender individuals, particularly black trans women. In the show’s season 3 finale, “Cock a Doodle Do,” Samantha is kept awake by a group of loud prostitutes who happen to be trans, but aren’t explored beyond that.

“It was disappointing to me, as a black trans woman, to see black trans women enter the world of ‘Sex and the City’ and be so thoroughly othered,” Cox told Variety‘s “My Favorite Episode” podcast. “But being critical of the show in that way didn

How Pushing Small Screen Boundaries Led Ryan Murphy to Walk of Fame Stardom
The only thing surprising about Ryan Murphy getting a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame Dec. 4 is that he doesn’t already have one.

“It’s about time!” exclaims Sarah Paulson, a frequent Murphy collaborator who’s worked with him on multiple projects since 2004, including every incarnation of “American Horror Story.” “I’m surprised people haven’t been walking all over his star on Hollywood Boulevard for 10 years now.”

One of the most prolific producers working today, Murphy has made an indelible stamp on the industry, reinventing the television landscape with every series he’s created, from 1999’s “Popular” and 2003’s “Nip/Tuck” to 2009’s “Glee” and his latest effort, “Pose.” Those anthology series that now dominate the screen? His idea. The migration of movie stars to television? Murphy again.

And now he’s set to bring his unique brand of reinvention to Netflix, where he signed a $300 million overall deal in February,

Netflix poaches ​Ryan Murphy in $300m deal

’The history of this moment is not lost on me. I am a gay kid from Indiana who moved to Hollywood in 1989 with $55 dollars in savings in my pocket.’

Netflix has signed Ryan Murphy to a multi-year deal to make new series and films, poaching the Emmy-winning producer away from his current studio home at 20th Century Fox.

The deal will come into effect in July and is reportedly a five-year arrangement that could be worth up to $300m.

The pact represents another talent coup for Netflix, which last summer poached Shonda Rhimes away from Disney’s ABC.

Murphy, best known for Nip/Tuck and Glee and also a prolific writer and director, was thought to be considering new options in advance of the expiration this summer of his 20th Century Fox deal. If he had renewed that deal he may have ended up working at Disney, which has agreed to buy assets of Rupert Murdoch’s [link=co

At long last, we return to dimension X-103, last seen in (arguably) one of the best episodes of the series, “Running With Scissors.” In the episode, Marco was stranded in this dimension, domain of the dimensional scissor forger, Heckapoo, and could only get back after earning new scissors. It took 16 years, and Marco fully aged into a muscled, dragon-motorcycle riding badass. However, as soon as he returned to

Annette Bening Joins the next "American Crime Story"

Chris here. Like many of you, I'm still bemoaning Annette Bening's 20th Century Women Oscar miss - but her next role might lighten the sting depending on where your television alliances lie. The actress is the first cast member to join Ryan Murphy's Katrina: American Crime Story as Louisiana governor Kathleen Blanco. With Feud just a few weeks away, Ryan Murphy is giving us all actresses all the time, even on projects yet to film.

If this seems something of a surprising casting coup for Murphy, you have probably forgotten that they had already worked together on Murphy's Running With Scissors adaptation. Funny how loyal his actors are even on his outright misfires. Murphy promises that other recognized figures like Blanco will factor into his Katrina narrative, so start speculating (or shuddering) away at who he could get to play the likes of Sean Penn and George W. Bush.

A History of Brad Pitt and Plan B’s Relationship With the Best Picture Oscar Category

Managing Editor

Brad Pitt is already a world-renowned actor, a silver screen heartthrob, and a tabloid rumor magnet, but perhaps the 52-year-old’s biggest impact on the entertainment industry will be his wildly successful production company: Plan B Entertainment Inc. — commonly called Plan B.

Plan B was established in November 2001 and, while having gone through a few behind-the-scenes changes throughout the years, it has kept a consistent track record when it comes to churning out movies and TV shows that garner critical, audience, and awards attention. Now, after about 15 years of existence, the company has a shot at earning its fifth best picture nomination at the Oscars on February 2017 with Moonlight.

In addition to the Oklahoma native, Plan B was founded with Brad Grey and Jennifer Aniston. In 2006, Aniston left the company after a high-profile divorce with Pitt and Grey exited

Will This Be the Year Annette Bening Finally Wins an Oscar?

Managing Editor

Over the course of her career, Annette Bening has been nominated for four Oscars. That, of course, shouldn’t come as a surprise because this is one extremely talented lady. What might shock you, though, is that Bening has taken home zero of those coveted statuettes — but this could all change with her latest work: 20th Century Women.

Mike Mills (Beginners, Thumbsucker) returns with another work he both directed and wrote the screenplay for — and it has the distinction of holding its world premiere on October 8 at the 54th New York Film Festival as the Centerpiece film this year.

The movie is a comedy based in Santa Barbara in the late 1970s and is the story of three women — Bening as single Dorothea Fields, a single mother to teenaged son Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann); Greta Gerwig as Abbie,

Postal Redux Releases On PC May 20, PlayStation 4 Version To Follow Later

Postal Redux, a remastered version of Postal released in 1997 launches on PC on May 20, developer Running With Scissors has announced. The original – a 3D isometric shooter – sparked controversy 19 years ago for its violence and gore and centred around a player character who “goes postal” after being evicted from his home and embarks on a killing spree. Fun fact: the game is the inspiration for Uwe Boll’s film of the same name – considered to be one of the worst ever made.

Besides the high-definition treatment being given to the remaster, Running With Scissors says that this spruced up version will feature a new score-attack mode called Rampage, which aims to give players more replay value.

With the new powerful addition of Rampage, Postal fans will go wild. The outrageous single-player game play mode rewards an aggressive style of play by increasing a multiplier for each consecutive kill in a streak.

Hatred Review

Catharsis (n) ku-thaa-sis

From the Greek meaning “purging” or “cleansing” – refers to the restoration or renewal of emotions by relieving tensions often through art, such as music.

You know, when I’m feeling a little tense and need to unwind, I like to bust open something like Left 4 Dead or Brutal Doom for some violent release. I can take several anguishes out on zombie hordes or pixilated hell beasts without the finger wagging from authoritative figures or animal rights groups.

Those who say violent video games turn people into violent criminals have obviously never experienced the feeling of tension washing away from your very core with every exploded head or mowed down imp. It’s like an orgy for my Wasd keys, only without the smoking afterwards.

Okay, maybe a little smoke.

That cathartic feeling one gets from video game violence was the least I was hoping for from

Time Machine: Paltrow Silvery Oscar Dress at 83rd Academy Awards

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes
