There has not been any game room packs for a while, so is Jeff's insanity finally over?

I'm pretty sure it's not dead since they announced Game Room for WP7 at CES this year. And they teased that Asteroids Deluxe was coming. Deluxe!

It'll return... on the night of the full moon. Where the forces of Heaven and Hell collide, and the Necronomicon is reopened.

So far as I know, they never put out Sunset Riders. And when they do, I'm pretty sure Jeff will do a Quick Look of solely that game. 
 
But as much as I loved the Game Room Quick Looks, now Jeff has something else crazy going on.  
 
THE TRAIN WILL NEVER DIE!! CHOOO CHOOO!

Game Room will come out for the Windows Phone, so no. But i guess it's "dead" for the time beeing.

It's just resting. Tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk.

Calling for a photoshop from Titanic where Jeff's head is on Kate Winslet and an arcade room cabinet is on Leo's head at the point in the movie where she lets him go.

Seemed like a nice idea, too. Was one of the reasons I was going to invest in yet another 360.

Where the fuck is sunset riders?

Perhaps there are "seasons" of Game Room game packs. The first season started in May 2010, so perhaps the second season of releases will start around May 2011. Or maybe never. Is there a release date for the Windows Phone 7 port?

I kind of think it's hilarious that sunset riders is on the hard drive yet it'll never be released. Seriously what the FUCK happened there? XD

Maybe they changed their minds and want to sell it as a full XBLA game.

@jadeskye:  I get the feeling they didn't think everything through initially. And when they started thinking, they shut down Game Room.

you're probably right, as much as game room was a total shit show, i appreciated the insight it gave into gaming before my golden era, hell, before i was even born.
