Saturn REVIEWS REPORT: 80 - 71

In their top 100 Saturn games, Retro Sanctuary, like the previous 20 games, is not exactly brimming with quality. Apart from the excellent Rayman, the 10 games from number 80 to number 71 are mostly sports games that are both graphical...


Saturn REVIEWS: Enemy Zero

The development story of Enemy Zero is an interesting footnote at the beginning of the 5th generation console wars. Initially conceived as PlayStation exclusive, WARP was discontent about Sony's handling of the game and its marketing. ...

Saturn REVIEWS: Rayman

Back in a time where every developer and their mother were chasing the latest trend in 3D graphics and blocky polygons, one small developer in France decided to go the other way. Instead of the latest in technology, they decided to go ...


Where the Hell is Phantasy Star?

To compete against Nintendo in the console wars, Sega made a conscious decision of making in-house games with many varied genres. That became even more important as Nintendo dominated in 3rd party support. The huge success of the firs...


Saturn REVIEWS: Soviet Strike

The Strike series is a product of its time. An entire game based on a single premise, that of a lone helicopter pilot raining hell on his enemies. Other than predicting the infatuation of Western developers with military settings, the ...

Where the hell is Advance Wars?

Of the many Nintendo franchises on hold, none seem to have as much history and as much reason to be made again other than the Advance Wars series. First, let us note that calling it the Advance Wars series is an inaccuracy; it should be mor...


Emuparadise going down is a significant blow to the Retro community. It was one of the safest archives of easily accessible Retro games in the net, and it allowed passionate gamers (like myself) to experience many games they would have never been able to


Saturn REVIEWS REPORT: 90 - 81

In their top 100 Saturn games, Retro Sanctuary didn't have much quality in the 80s. There were a couple of sport games competing against other console's titles, and there was an ambitious port of an early PC FPS. That was generally the...


Saturn REVIEWS: Shining Wisdom

Sega's Shining series has always been one of many genres and possibilities. It started as a dungeon crawler RPG, and it thrived as one of the best SRPG franchises in the 16bit generation. As such, it was only natural that it takes a st...


Wii REVIEWS: No More Heroes

For those reading one of my Wii review blogs for the first time, here is the basic concept: The Wii is often mocked for its game library, yet, it actually has a solid list of exclusives that are unavailable anywehere else. Though only ...


Just finished Arkham Knight. One of the most boring games I ever played. Felt like work completing it, and it is the definition of busy-work gameplay. Semi-open world and reliance on the Batmobile dragged the game down. Terrible pacing and side-quests.


The Switch's 2nd year is obviously slower than its first. Especially if you owned a Wii U. For non owners of that unfortunate consoles, most of its ports are new games. It reminds me of the PS4's first year, but w/o Call of Duty.


Microsoft will not catch up 2 the PS4 this generation. There is no way it can. However, they have shown that they learned their lesson, and are probably ready to start swinging at the gate for their next console. So ready they are already talking about it


I fully expect this to be Sony's year, as unlike last year they will show games with actual release dates.


If they released the new Pokemon game with the explosion of Pokemon Go, Nintendo would have absolutely broke all sales record for a Pokemon or a Nintendo game. Now, I think this has the potential to sell-well, but it will surely anger the core fanbase imo


I managed to catch a Flu in New York. Didn't even know they had that Pokemon released and now I am on a 600$ a night bed. WHOOOOPEEEE


I went to Nintendo NYC store today for the first time ever. It was as exciting as I expected it to be. Excellent staff, and so much memorabilia. Managed to take a picture of the famous Gulf War Game Boy and got me some Hanafuda cards.


Saturn REVIEWS REPORT: 100 - 91

In their top 100 Saturn games, Retro Sanctuary didn't have many ringers in the last 10 in the list. From numver 100 to the 91st game, there were some unique games, and even the start of a moderately successful mascot's career. Most of ...


Saturn REVIEWS: Blazing Heroes/Mystaria

If anyone suggested that Sega's newest console would almost launch with a Sega developed and published Tactical RPG, everyone would have thought a new Shining Force game was on the way.Instead, Sega, ever the intelligent decision-maker...


Time in the internet is like bungee jumping. The first few moment are exhilarating, fun, and exiting. However, if you keep hanging down,the blood rushes down to your face, and the abyss start's staring at you. Moderation is key


Legitimate and well-thoughtout blogs do not get a fraction of the traffic the newest troll blog got. Don't reward such writing with the attention better spent to other blogs.


My Blogs: A Full Recap

Hello all, I have been blogging here in Dtoid since the start of 2014. In the beginning, I really did not think I would continue blogging for such a long time. At first, I only started with the goal of finishing up my SNES reviews seri...


About Lord Spencerone of us since 5:57 PM on 01.12.2014

Hello all, I am Lord Spencer, your friendly neighborhood royalty. Yes, the ancient bloodlines are letting absolutely anyone in these days.

Being the lurker that I am, I have been following Destructoid for more than four years. Well, its 3 AM where I live now, and I just plunged in getting HUGE in the way.

Here is hoping for a fun time.

Oh yes, here is a little more info about me that is probably not as interesting as I think it is:

-I owned and played about 1000+ games.
-I owned and read about 2000+ books (I counted comic books I read as a kid so this is not as impressive as it sounds).
-I absolutely love Legos.

Out of all the games I played, I only regret playing a few. I am a big fan of gaming, and thus I really like most of what I play.

Seeing as my top 10 games of all time would change depending on the day you ask me, I am just going to put in Random games I don't think are in anyone's top 10 list:

-Blood Will Tell
-Mega Man Legends 2
-Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
-Donkey Kong Country 2
-Suikoden 2

Oh, and here is a link to my blogs:
