Shadows of the Beast / Psygnosis


Last week i got Sega MegaDrive Ultimate Collection an seeing Altered Beast i got excited.
As a kid, i had an Amiga 500..(shit had the illest games..nuffsaid) an was blown away by this one joint which involved a warrior character which could shapeshift into a beast.. graphics were way ahead of its time, soundtrack was fuckin dope..anyway, i thought this was Altered Beast..oh how i was WRONG!!

After Googling "Aminga 500 Beast" i found out that:
a) I was thinking of SHADOWS OF THE MUTHAFUCKIN BEAST!!
b) Altered Beast sucks in comparison!!

Check this whole shit out:
Step One: Get this (config)
Step Two: Insert this
Step Three: Disc One Disc Two
There you go..plug an play baby
On a similar note: Psygnosis, the company that put out SOTB, apart from putting out games of a very high standard also put out top-notch covers.. you may notice similarities between Yes's album covers an what's below, that's because they too were all done by Roger Dean. His shit is A*mazing!!!

Enjoy!!
