Jazz2Online news for January 2012

Are you a fan artist, or have you ever even pretended to be? You should join the EpicGamers group over at deviantART. It was created in collaboration with Epic Games’ official community blog, and it’s got a Jazz Jackrabbit folder that’s looking awfully lonely right about now. (And even if you’re not a traditional artist, they’re open to the possibility of exploring other media, so… give them a try! Maybe this is the big break that Adventures in Stonar has been looking for!)

EDIT: Five Seven different artists so far! Keep it up, y’all!


Permalink Did You Know: we need your help! January 25th 2012

One of the front page sidebars on J2O is “Did you know??”, which gives you brief interesting facts about JJ2 and related games and occasionally links to find out more. We haven’t added anything to the list in a long time; post your suggestions for new DYKs here in the comments!


Permalink Let's Play JJ2 1.00g January 25th 2012

I’m currently in the process of making a Let’s Play of JJ2 1.00g. It will show differences between this version and 1.23, trivia and other things. It will also show basic secrets and what not to those who don’t know know much about the game. This is also a small tribute to a community as strong as steel. I want YOUR opinion.

Here’s the thread: http://www.jazz2online.com/jcf/showthread.php?p=474088#post474088

Please give it a watch and let me know what i can do different, feedback and corrections. I make mistakes, so feel free to correct me if I make a mistake in my videos.

As of the time of posting, I only have one video up but part 2 should be up by tomorrow. (Again as of time writing this) After that I“m gonna try and keep it updated more daily like ever other day or so. Please watch and give me feedback.
