BONUS STAGE - Bad Influence S01E01

Here comes a new challenger! 

While GamesMaster ruled the video game TV roost, a new show began on CITV which not only aimed to be Tomorrow's World for kids, but also showed off new video games, gave hints, and cheats on how to beat them, and new consoles! This is Bad Influence.

We take a quick pitstop along our GamesMaster journey to take a look at the first episode of Bad Influence, where Andy Crane and Violet Berlin take us through previews and reviews of Streets of Rage 2, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario Land 2, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Joe & Mac, Putty, Smash TV, and Battletoads, Z Wright shows us Seattle via virtual reality, and Nam Rood gives hints and cheats for Sonic the Hedgehog, Dr. Franken, and Zool! All the finger twiddling and the joystick juggling was all worth it!
