Altered Beast

My original plan for Monday was to post some thoughts on WWE’s Super Show-Down, however I’m running behind schedule because of a busy weekend. I’m hoping to have my WWE Super Show-Down post up on Tuesday, but I didn’t want to miss my scheduled Monday post.

So, I thought this might be a good opportunity to re-visit my first post for GameTripper, a look back at how I first encountered Altered Beast on the Mega Drive. I think everyone who writes about games has a game everyone associates them with and I think Altered Beast is mine. I know it’s not a particularly good game, but I have very fond memories of it – Altered Beast was a game that inspired my love of retro gaming and rekindled my love for Sega. Without it, I’d probably still be only be playing sports games.

Here is the link for my contribution to GameTripper Do check GameTripper out as there are some great contributors involved as well as Matt, who runs the site. I’m writing another piece for GameTripper at the moment so hopefully I’ll be able to share that soon.

In the meantime, though I’d best get back to watching WWE. I’ve got a bit of catching up to do!
