This past April, Running with Scissors released the Paradise Lost expansion for Postal 2 – 12 years after the game’s original release.


It’s a great time to be a fan of old school games, even if the game is only a decade or two old. Every other week seems like there’s an HD remake, dlc expansion, spiritual successor, compilation, or plain old re-release of a classic game on the horizon. Take Postal 2 for instance. This past year, developer Running With Scissors released Paradise Lost, an expansion for Postal 2 which sees the Postal Dude returning to his hometown, which has been reduced to a radioactive wasteland. Along with Postal, four other games from the late 90s and early 2000s are receiving new content this year. Read on to see what’s new with your favorite modern day classics.

Granted, many of us remember these original series fondly through the grace of nothing more than nostalgia-tinted glasses, but whatever the case was a lot of the cartoons we grew up with were blessed with awesome. (either cheesy awesome that we didn’t care about much as kids, or through actual honest talent in writing and execution.

And thus, several show saw “comebacks” in the mid-to-late 1990’s and early 2000’s, either as reboots of their original series of sequels, that meant to bank on said nostolgia value and gain the same acclaim that the previous installments gained from much of us.
