Live Show: Let's mess with Phil while playing Dark Souls 2

Apr 02 // Spencer Hayes
[embed]272790:53238:0[/embed]   Now, while I'm being sneaky down here it's time to talk about our really rad giveaway we're doing on the channel. We're handing out a copy of Watch_Dogs when it releases. Want to enter? Hit that subscribe button on the channel OR send in a postcard. The details are down there under the post. Go check it out if you care. Oh, and all of the giveaway stuff will be handled off of Twitch so don't worry about crazy Twitch laws. 
My apologies to the Anthropy family.
While I was growing up my mother always taught me that revenge was a dish best served cold. Well Mom, today the dish is being served lukewarm. If you checked out our previous Dark Souls 2 stream you'll remember that Phil insi...

Dragonball is for dumb babies that need their anime drip fed to them

If you've ever been to our live channel you know that Phil and I love some ridiculous Japanese games. That's part of what makes our partnership with so much fun. In the past we've had fun shooting under...

Live Show: Cloudbuilt is crazy spirit Mirror's Edge!

Get ready to go so fast!
Mar 27
// Spencer Hayes
I have a shocking love for games that make me feel like I can barely keep up with them. Sadly, there haven't been a ton of games to scratch this particular itch. Enter Cloudbuilt, the neon robot ghost speed platformer. Luckil...

Live Show: TUG-in' it with Infamous: Second Son

I love writing titles like that
Mar 26
// Spencer Hayes
If you've never heard of the game TUG I wouldn't blame you. I mean, I had only learned about it a few weeks ago. As my producer Bill Zoeker (Zoey) pitched it, "Think like Minecraft but for your weird hipster people Spencer." ...

Live show: Let's get anime with Witch and the Hundred Knight

Phil and the Hundred Spencers
Mar 25
// Spencer Hayes
You ever have those games that just sneak up on you? When Witch and the Hundred Knight was announced I was all about that nonsense. Fast forward several months to now and the game is out. Boy does it look silly. If you aren't...

Here's to you
Mar 24

It feels really good to be back in the saddle. We missed pretty much an entire week of shows due to GDC, but we're coming back with a vengeance. If you've heard Phil or I talk about our favorite games you've undoubtedly heard...

Live Show: Win some Titanfall goodies!

Here's more Titanfall!
Mar 14
// Spencer Hayes
If you're anything like Phil or I you haven't put down Titanfall since it came out on Tuesday. It's really refreshing to jump back into a competitive multiplayer game. Now that I'm thinking about it, the last time I got into ...

Mar 13
// Spencer Hayes
Have you guys seen Hohokum? Of course you have, it's the charming and beautiful game about everything and nothing. I realize that's not a very apt description, but there isn't really a better way to describe it. All we know i...

Live Show: We're playing Dark Souls II

Place bets on how often Phil and I die
Mar 12
// Spencer Hayes
I don't often recommend that you take Phil and my crazy antics and base drinking games off of them, but if you have to do it sometime: today is the day. Now, we aren't exactly bad at games -- between the two of us we can mudd...

We're even giving away an Xbox One
Mar 11
// Spencer Hayes
Here at Destructoid we're either super excited for Titanfall or we're skipping it entirely. Naturally, I'm one of the people ready to sacrifice their firstborn to get their hands on the game. So, when Twitch came to us about ...

Watch us play inFamous: Second Son with Sucker Punch co-founder Chris Zimmerman

Mar 10 // Spencer Hayes
What's beyond the neon cloud?
I've got to say, I'm looking forward to Infamous: Second Son. Now, this might surprise you if you follow my infuriatingly titled posts. Up until last week I didn't have any interest in Second Son. Sure, it looked neat, but w...


Live Show: Did Matt and Trey sell out to Ubisoft?

Punchy headlines
Mar 07
// Spencer Hayes
I've never been a huge fan of South Park. I mean, I appreciate its biting satire but there's just something about the show that convinced every suburban teenager to try a Cartman impression that just doesn't sit right with me...

Live Show: Is Lego Movie one of the few good licensed games?

Hint: Everything is awesome
Mar 05
// Spencer Hayes
Hey all, consider this a PSA: Lego Movie is good- like really really good. So, when a lovely fan gifted Phil a copy of the game on Steam (Thanks Shadowclone1000!) we were cautiously optimistic. Sure Lego games are typically c...

Live Show: Breaking into Earth Defense Force 2025's co-op mode

Mar 04

The last Clubhouse before the singularity
Feb 27
// Spencer Hayes
In case you didn't catch last night's Gentlemen's Club I'll bring you up to speed: Phil and I are taking over once our beloved King Foom moves on. This means that we're going to have to restructure the entire live ch...

Come join us for the last Gentlemen's Club

It's good, isn't it
Feb 26
// Spencer Hayes
Yep guys. It's time to pack in the Gentlemen's Club. It's been a hell of a ride. We started the show up almost a year and a half ago and it's easily become the highlight of my week. When Phil and I first came up with the idea...

Videogames Clubhouse: Garden Warfare puns!

Do you think love can bloom on the battlefield
Feb 25
// Spencer Hayes
When Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was first announced I was seemingly the only person on the planet not won over by it's charms. Something about EA making a third person shooter out of an already delightful IP didn't si...

Videogames Clubhouse: Neon-Ninja-Strider time!

We're gon' cut some dudes!
Feb 20
// Spencer Hayes
I had no idea that Strider was going to be as rad as it is. Leading up to release I expected a kind of meh platformer that was all style with no substance. Well I feel foolish. The neon-soaked ninja nonsense (alliteration) is...

Gentlemen's Club: We're giving away tons of Payday 2!

Over on
Feb 19
// Spencer Hayes
If you've been following my Twitter you know I'm absolutely head over heels for Payday 2. I came in expecting a crime themed Left 4 Dead-lite but what I got was one of my favorite co-op games. There' s something about plannin...

Videogame Clubhouse: We're giving away Hotline Miami

Feb 18
// Spencer Hayes
Goddamn do I love Hotline Miami. It's certainly the little game that could. It's bloodsoaked neon aesthetics and thumpin' soundtrack has made it one of few games I've beaten multiple times. Now, you can imagine my excitement ...

Videogame Clubhouse: The Valentine's Day special

Feb 13
// Spencer Hayes
It's time for that annual occurrence of public shame and humiliation: Valentine's Day. If that sentence wasn't enough to tip you off then know that I'm not a big fan of the holiday. So what is a guy to do to prepare himself f...

Gentlemen's Club: The Lego Movie is incredible

Seriously, go peep it.
Feb 12

Remember back when we all used to watch kids movies? You know, when we were kids? Well, it looks like they've been taken care of while we were away. Last week Phil and I saw the Lego Movie and oh my god it was pretty commonpl...

Videogame Clubhouse: Delve into the EXTREME with Amped 3!

It's like Mountain Dew Snowboardz
Feb 06
// Spencer Hayes
Since indie month ended, Phil has kind of been going nuts. If you didn't check out our last show you missed a hot beach adventure with Dead or Alive Xtreme 2. So, how has Phil decided to top that nonsense? Apparently the answ...

The return of the Gentlemen's Club: Akiba's Trip edition

Feb 05
// Spencer Hayes
Have you guys heard of Akiba's Trip 2? If you're not up on your crazy Japanese games I'll break it down for you: It's Yakuza but to defeat your vampire enemies you have to RIP OFF THEIR CLOTHES. That's right, it's like crazy ...

Videogame Clubhouse: We're giving away Octodad!

Jan 30
// Spencer Hayes
I'm not going to get fancy with this post: Octodad is better than pretty much every game launched in the past year. In the hour I spent with the game last night I had more fun than I had in recent memory. Naturally, we're end...
