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?
