Live Show: Bonus Valkyria Chronicles day

What?! I thought we were done with Valkyria Chronicles. Sure, the game is great and has become a favorite on the channel but we already said that we were done! Consider this one a bonus. It's kind of like that time your dad came home at nig...

Live show: Finishing up Beyond: Two Souls

I have very few qualms with calling Beyond: Two Souls a bad game. From it's incredibly poorly executed QTEs to its incredibly hamfisted writing there is very little in there that I would call decent, and even fewer examples of things that a...

Live Show: Beyond: Two Souls Day 2

Captain's Log: it's day 2 and I'm already starting to see the cracks in my sanity. David Cage's magnum opus is dragging me down. It's called Beyond: Two Souls but I reality it's closer to Beyond: Two oh my god please kill me. The terro...

Live Show: Let's play Beyond: Two Souls

Hey guys! I'm pretty sure that's how you're supposed to start a let's play. Yeah, I don't get it either so I'll refrain from making any more of those jokes.  If you saw Phil and my previous show, The Gentlemen's Club you undoubted...

Live Show: Saving Gallia one more time in Valkyria Chronicles

Seriously, will we ever shut up about Valkyria Chronicles? Short answer: No. Long answer: "Oh my god why didn't anyone play this game. It's seriously brilliant and it deserves even more praise than it gets." But that's not the only Dtoid.tv...

Hyper Light Drifter is the developer's own 'dream game'

When you look to hard-hitting journalism you (hopefully) look to Destructoid. In keeping with this tradition we had the creators of Hyper Light Drifter onto our live channel to talk about developing the game while we totally dissected the ...

Live Show: More forgotten gems with Resonance of Fate

Earlier this week Phil and I played Valkyria Chronicles and we realized something: There are tons of great games out there that people haven't heard of and we can bring them to the people. So that's what we're doing today.  You're forg...

Live Show: Wilhelm screams and motorbikes in Trials Fusion

There was a time back in middle school when flash games ruled a large part of my attention span. So many classics, surely you all remember that one with stickmen and tons of violence? How about that other one about violent stickmen? Wait, I...

Live Show: Bro-op shootin' terrorists in Broforce

I wish there were witty things to say about Broforce, but what can you even say about this masterpiece? It's a co-op (bro-op) game about shooting tons of terrorists as the protagonists of your favorite action movies. This seems like somethi...

Live Show: The Humble Bundle Finale

We've had a crazy week, haven't we? When I started at Destructoid all those years ago I never thought we'd be able to curate a Humble Bundle. Look at me now, mom! So what are we doing today? We're bringing it all full circle and playing eve...

 
 


About Spencer Hayesone of us since 6:18 PM on 03.10.2010

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.
