About
Nobody really knows what Spencer does. Technically some sort of Community Manager Spencer has also been known to stand in front of cameras and talk to people. Additionally, he's a hot hunk o' man.

Aside from these studly endeavors, Spencer loves indie games in a way that would make most people blush and has played more hours of Pokemon than any one person should.

Apparently ethics statements are a thing we're doing now so I guess I have to put that here:

I'm friends with several indie developers and I worked at Gamestop at one point in my life. I really love hotdogs.

I'm pretty sure those are the only biases I could think to air.

Live Show: Sony's here with Hohokum and Helldivers

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...   more

Live Show: We're playing Dark Souls II

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...   more

Live Show: Win an Xbox One bundle, games, and more on our Titanfall stream!

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 ...   more

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

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...   more

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

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...   more

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

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...   more

Come join us for the last Gentlemen's Club

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...   more

Videogames Clubhouse: Garden Warfare puns!

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...   more

Videogames Clubhouse: Neon-Ninja-Strider time!

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...   more

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

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...   more

Videogame Clubhouse: We're giving away Hotline Miami

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 ...   more

Videogame Clubhouse: The Valentine's Day special

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...   more
