Surely it's only a sequel if it's got a 2 on the end.

A sequel to The Sacred Armour of Antiriad would've been cool 8)
it could've featured at the start flying out of the volcano and going on to other worlds, and the Antiriad armour could get upgrades including new weapons and faster than light space travel

8)

Um, the fact that you didn't like the sequel doesn't stop it from existing!

Elgin_McQueen—Speedball 2 did have a series sequel, in the form of Speedball 2100.
Speedball 2100 wasn't a sequel, it was basically a port.

Was reading on GameCentral the other day there is a sequel coming out next year, it's got a different name, something about not being allowed to use the old one, but their preview of it said they haven't made major overhauls to it because it's possibly the best RTS ever, but the improvements they've made are really good and the graphics are even better.

Although moving on from that, I defy anyone to tell me that Empire Strikes Back isn't a sequel to Star Wars!!

Now your being silly, the Starwars films are numbered... No confusion there ( unless roman numerals confuse you.. )

Heh - maybe I am being silly, but hey it doesn't need a number to be a sequel! There's probably loads but I can't think right now...
Erm - the Matrix films! ha!
And games wise I wish I could think of some but I can't.. erm........
Oh, what about Parodius? The sequel is called Fantastic Voyage!

Vagrant Story. I live with the sad knowledge that it's highly unlikely.

Syndicate for the Amiga.
I still dream of the day, I can buy some nice metal prostethics, and take my minigun for a spin.

Oh and before anyone asks: no minigun is NOT a nickname for any bodily appendixes :roll: :D
