Postal Redux Arrives On PC Next Week, PS4 This Winter

It’s been nearly 20 years since Running with Scissors released its killing spree-inspired Postal. The world has changed a lot since then, but that hasn’t stopped the developer from pursuing an updated version designed for PC and PlayStation 4.

PC players will be able to revisit (or check out for the first time) a game that generated a massive gravitational well of controversy. The graphics have most definitely been given a coat of polish, but the game retains its original aesthetic styling.

Daydreamer: Awakened Edition's Creator Walks Us Through Its Creepy Dreamscape

Daydreamer: Awakened Edition is a freaky-looking platformer that pays homage to classic games from the 8- and 16-bit era, while drawing artistic inspiration from doodles, street art, and the creepy works of artist H.R. Giger. Roland Womack, the game's programmer, designer, and artist, walks us through some of the game's other inspirations while showing off a nice slice of its creepy worlds.

Womack says he wanted the game to look like a series of handcrafted sets instead of the tile-based designs that are typically seen in platforming games. As you can see in the video below, he's created a visually striking – and unsettling – world, populated with plenty of insectoid creeps.

Mafia III's Driving Mechanics Are Inspired By 1960s Hollywood Films

A new video from Hangar 13 puts emphasis on the revamped driving mechanics of Mafia III, and how they are inspired by 1960s era Hollywood films such as Steve McQueen's Bullitt.

In the video, design director Matthias Worch describes the new mechanics as resembling "Hollywood action driving," as if you were a stunt driver starring in a blockbuster movie. Each car is meant to feel authentic and has a certain heaviness, which allows for drifting around corners and crashing into things with force. Different surfaces, from gravel to muddy roads, will also affect how your car controls.

Is This What Forza’s Really About? Impressions Of The Forza: Apex Beta

Is This What Forza’s Really About? Impressions Of The Forza: Apex Beta

Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is Microsoft and developer Turn 10's series introduction on PC, albeit in a free-to-play format that culls Xbox One's Forza 6 into something more bite-sized than fans or the franchise deserves. The game is in open beta at the moment, and I tried it, which led me to question if this is really what Forza is all about.

Apex features 12 Tour races where you earn medals based not just on how well you do, but if you knock out certain objectives. So you may have an absolute hot rod in your stable, but if you can't race it without the racing line, for instance, you're going to miss out on that extra medal. Earning and showing off your medals to your friends is what Apex is all about. Since it doesn't have traditional multiplayer – only asynchronous multiplayer – the best you can do is make sure you have more medals and better times than anyone else. It's not just a curious choice, it's a downright bad one that doesn't represent Forza nor give anyone playing Apex any joy.

Persona 5's Release Date Only Covers Japan, But We Can All Watch A Cool Trailer

We don’t normally cover Japanese release dates, but this one might have some implication for our readership. This morning, Atlus finally announced when Persona 5 will be out in Japan, meaning the game is on track to be completed very soon (if not already).

The game lands on September 15. Given how long RPGs take to complete, it might as well be going toe-to-toe with Final Fantasy XV, which is out on September 30.
