Things are grim on Sera in Gears of War 3. People — important ones, even — are dying. The Lambent seem to be ready to overrun the entire planet. The whole game's one big emo-pocalypse.
Good thing, Epic laid a bunch of easter eggs through the best-selling shooter. So far we've seen the Cluckshot, Cole Train on a playground and a reference to Cliff Bleszinski's old-school Jazz Jackrabbit game way back in the multiplayer beta.
The latest hidden gag lets you play a decrepit stand-up arcade machine called Sawed-Off Chicken. It takes a little hunting to find it and a few kicks to get the thing going, but once it starts, you get to control an angry bird wearing a COG helmet and dual-wielding two lethal shotties. Mr Chicken faces up against a horde of Lambent Polyps, just like Marcus and crew do. With this latest easter egg, can a Jazz Jackrabbit revival be far behind?
