As many know, Epic, creators of Gears of War, has had lots of talk of a sequal to that game. But has anyone heard they might come out with an arcade game, a new version of the older game Jazz Jackrabbit.
Heres a video of the game if nobody has seen it.

And here is the sequal to the game.

Dont know if anyone here has ever played this game but I had a hell of a good time playing it back then and it should be fun if it comes out.

"Gears of War" is a triligy so there will definatly be 'a sequel'. As for the Arcade game I will look into it.

Yea what I said about Gears was more of a like 99.9% sure kind of thing that a sequal was coming, because of the ending. But im really hoping for that arcade game, I had a blast playing it as a kid.

By Triligy I meant the game series will consist of 3 games. And, Yes, The ending does give a 'cliff-hanger' for GoW2.

Still nothing on the Jazz Jackrabbit. I don't think they are though seeing from the information I could find on Epicgames.com.

"www.epicclassics.com (http://www.epicclassics.com) is not affiliated with Epic Games Inc. They are selling some of our older titles by mail order only.
Please do not contact us regarding matters concerning this company, orders you placed with them or questions about these older games. We no longer support any of the titles that they are selling and they don't provide tech support either although they do provide a money-back guarantee.

They aren't even selling the games anymore. Which gives me more of a reason to say no.

In our report on Cliffy B's take on Jazz Jackrabbit and its potential for Xbox Live Arcade.

Very small quote from an article focusing on mainly the talks of the Gears trilogy. Heres a link to the site.

The article says if they have the resources it will be a trilogy +, but nothing about Jazz Jackrabbit?

Hmm, If I remember correctly there was someone on X360A that was going to make a hopefully XBLA successful arcade game. To whoever that was ;) Make this one!

Yea by reading this he wants it to be made badly but simply doesn't have the time to do it himself because of the Gears sequal and unreal tournament. Im really pulling for this game though.

Well Epic has been talking about not even releasing Unreal for the 360. I hope they do though because that game is awesome.

I read that they are...just not at first since they got the initial release exclusivity with Sony.

I have a feeling that Gears 2 is going to be the same thing, an enjoyable Single Player, but the story is going to be so full of loopholes.

I really liked Gears, it had a solid campaign, even if it was short, and didn't really explain the story at all. But, Im excited for a game that I KNOW Ill like [Unreal] vs. a game that Im fairly certain is going to disapoint at least a little bit.

Im fairly ticked at EPIC as it stands tho, for the PC release of Gears bullsh*t.
