Postal has a number of uses. Normally just used as slang for "gone crazy" or can actually mean the act of going on a shooting spree. The term started after several postal employees went on shooting sprees.
Years after the term was no longer popular a company called "Running with scissors" made an EXTREMELY AWFUL pc game called "postal" which simply featured level after level of badly simpulated shooting sprees across a number of venues such as marching bands, gas stations, military bases, etc... Despite the fact that, had things been left well enough alone, nobody would have ever known this game existed a numvber of events happened to make this game 10 times more popular(but no less awful). First the U.S. Postal Service tried to sue the company over use of the name and failed quite horribly when it was proven that nowhere in the game was there even so much as a single refrence to any actual postal workers. Later, after the coulmbine shootings, Senator Liberman and a group of lazy parents tried to blame increased violence among children on the Video Game industry and Postal got even more free publicity when it was used as an example of violence in games.
What the US Postal Service, Senator Liberman and the fat lazy parents who hate video games failed to realise that their efforts only served to make Postal 10 times as popular as it otherwise ever would have been and nobody who ever actually played the game enjoyed it or tried to emulate it in any way.
Today video games are 10 times as violent and real than Postal ever was and gamers all over the earth hate Senator Liberman. However, anyone who claims to have seen me hanging around outside his house planning to go postal on his ass is nothing but a filthy rotten liar!
(Acronym) "Big Man Online." A person who routinely boasts about their page traffic, brags about their number of online friends, attempts to win online popularity contests, and is overly concerned with any other worthless, false indication of their acceptance on the Internet. The ultimate goal of every BMO is to win a Webby Award, the definitive trophy proudly declaring to the world that your 15 minutes of fame ended half an hour ago. The average BMO attempts to add every living creature on the planet to their IM buddy list, because everybody knows the quantity of people you message with "LOL" defines your value as a human being.
An excellent MMORPG developed by Turbine and Published by Microsoft.
When it was first released the game was moderately popular for many years and was of much greater quality than Evercamp. It had many brilliant and innovative ideas such as the Allegance System and the Updates which added new content to the game every month. However, the updates were eventually the death of the game as the morons added so many high level creatures to the game that it became to dangerous to walk five feet out of any town unless you were over level 100. What were they thinking?
The Sequel to this game was extremely similir to the original game except that it had slightly better graphics and all the good features were removed. In other words the sequel sucked. Hopefully if there is ever a another sequel to this wonderful game then the developers will have the sense to bring back the original Character system, magic and other excellent features from the original that the last game lacked.
Asherons call is the best MMORPG I have ever played. Although if I had spent a few more weeks with Anarchy Online I might have changed my mind.
