Co-Op Classics Video Edition: Altered Beast and Joust

Once again, we've got a couple Co-Op Classics for you to peruse, this time in visual form.  Wolves, tigers, bears, and ostriches make star appearances as we dig deep into the Co-Op Classics vault: Altered Beast, a fine brawler known primarily for its Genesis port, joins Joust, a Golden Age masterpiece from the arcades.  So get ready, buzzard bait!

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Altered Beast; my aunt spontaneously decided to purchase a Genesis one rainy Saturday afternoon, and Altered Beast was the pack-in (before Sonic, naturally).  A truly epic power up system, creepy enemies, and hilariously bad voice acting ("WISE FWOM YOUR GWABE!"combined for a stellar experience.  Note that the video is taken from the arcade version, which sadly lacks the worst of the voices.
