'POSTAL' Game Tournament at CES-Las Vegas

Inimitable mad cow developer Running With Scissors stole a little of the media-sucking luster usually reserved for the likes of Britney Spears and Sadaam Hussein. They did it by transporting company spokesperson Gary Coleman and a clutch of Postal Babes to the Cyber X Game Tournament, held in Las Vegas as part of the massive 2004 Consumer Electronics Show.

"POSTAL 2: Share The Pain and the Postal Babes are the hottest things at this year's show!" declared the unstoppable Coleman, who was later reportedly spied at A Little White Chapel squiring several of the drop dead gorgeous Postal Babes. Gary first appeared in the single-player POSTAL 2 and returns with the Postal Babes in the just-released POSTAL 2: Share The Pain, which includes multiplayer.

Mr. Coleman, the Postal Babes and P2: Share The Pain attracted enormous attention at this year's CES/CXG, with gamers and other attendees flocking to the RWS booth for free massages and light-hearted flogging from the whip-wielding Babes.

"It was very encouraging," agreed RWS' dervish-like honcho, Vince Desi. "After being invited -- and then dis-invited -- to speak at the Digital Hollywood seminar, I was afraid that Las Vegas no longer wanted to Share The Pain with us. But our hardcore demographic -- members of Alcoholics Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous and Gamers Anonymous -- stepped in and sucked up the slack."

POSTAL 2: Share The Pain is the expanded single-player and first-time-ever multiplayer edition of the classic POSTAL franchise and will launch nationally at several major retailers this month.
