  Watch Video Hey all. After today's post, I'm officially gone from Destructoid. I've got to say that it's been one hell of a ride. I came in back in 2010 as a pretentious 19-year-old and I'm leaving as a 22-year old with nothing but oppor...   read

  Watch Video Sweet mercy, you guys love Valkyria Chronicles. When we first played the game on the channel about a month ago you all ate it up. It's definitely the most popular game we've played in quite a while.  So, we're continuing...   read

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.
