Uwe Boll Watch: Someone's Seen Postal


The German trickster's about to offend, well, everyone.
By Patrick Klepek, 01/26/2007
We know Uwe Boll has challenged himself to pull no punches with the Postal movie. The game caused endless controversy, and it appears Boll's looking to repeat that in Hollywood, if the impressions from IGN Filmforce, based on 20 minutes of footage, are anything to go by. Hell, if even half of what IGN's seen appears in the final cut that eventually appears in American theaters, it'll make millions on shock value alone. Here's what we're supposed to expect: Osama Bin Laden making cracks about 9/11, tongue-in-cheek Columbine reenactments, a man pooping onto the camera, David Foley of News Radio going full-frontal and harsh jabs at religious doctrine. Apparently, nothing's sacred to Boll, and we're already wishing Postal was headed to DVD, so we could see all the scenes that will be inevitably cut for an R rating.
A bit of IGN's impressions:
"IGN recently got a chance to check out footage from the flick, and it may boil down to one of the most inflammatory pieces of film ever. If it makes it to theaters, expect pickets, threats... the whole nine. What's so raw about the film? It attacks nearly everything Americans -- well, everyone -- holds sacred. Whereas other films have tiptoed around 9/11 and school shootings, Postal plays them off as humorous. Many hold to the philosophy that nothing is off limits in comedy, but there do seem to be exceptions to the rule, and the aforementioned topics fall into that category.
The filmmakers are adamant that it is satire, but have no compunction about offending. In fact, they intend to challenge and divide audiences, and seem to be ready for the backlash. It's obvious that everything is played for laughs, but does that make it better or worse? Audiences will be the final jury."
Mr. Boll, if America didn't already hate you, I'd say they're about to.

    BTW, i started Ghost of Tsushima, and it got me hooked within the first couple of minutes. I already know It's gonna be a memorable experience. This is how you make a proper Samurai game. Not that SJW game Ubisoft is making.

    Hellblade 2 has a lower peak player count than Redfall 😬
    That's still higher than it's total play length. A 5 hour campaign for a $50 game is downright scammy.

    Consoles were my main platform ever since Atari 2500. But now I think it's not worth it as PC especially with DLSS deliver far smoother performance. AW2 on console didn't even had ray tracing and ran below 30fps. Similar issues plagues DD2 on consoled.
    The cross gen era really made people think 60fps would be a new standard lol

    Welp, done with Hellblade 2. Thoroughly disappointed. Such a nothing burger after the unique experience of the first game.

    I have a PS5 but I am not satisfied with the experience. I am currently saving for a 4080 64 GB rig soon. Bit will wait for Pro if performance improves. This gen has been so bad I don't plan on buying consoles anymore for AAA gaming.

    It is indeed the worst generation by far.

    Both PS and Xbox have been a flop this gen as they can barely maintain 30 fps in a lot of AAA games th.

    As per WCCF Tech review, Xbox Series X doesn't even maintain a consistent FPS and sometimes drops into the mid-20fps range. That's unacceptable, tbh.

    Still, I wonder why the PC Gamer rated it worse than Gollum. 🤔

    Gradually transitioning from console gaming to PC as the games are not worth it. 6 hours of Hellblade 2 is just not worth the $50 price tag.
    Score 1 for game pass. I wouldn't pay full price for this at retail either.

    Just downloaded my first legit digital PC game on GoG at a discount of $8: Two Point Hospital. The same team behind Theme Hospital Two Point Studios now part of Sega. And I am having more fun than most recent AAA games except of course BG3.

    Still, I don't like either Sony or Microsoft as they are focusing more on corporate greed than delighting customers. PC gaming is best of gaming and worth every penny.

    PC Gamer score of 58/100 for Hellblade 2??? Is it really worse than Gollum that was 64/100? Microsoft games can't even come close to high scores of Sony exclusives apparently.

    About the Microsoft (and Sony) debate, I feel both have become too greedy and losing their minds over corporate greed. Personally, I will never buy any console next gen and switch to PC gaming where democracy reins.
