Tim Spaeth

Cleveland native Tim Spaeth grew up in a happy household – a household with a father whose major client happened to be an Atari games distributor. This led directly to Tim's first nickname: "The kid who got Atari games before anyone else." Indeed, he knew Pac-Man and E.T. were colossal bombs weeks before the rest of the world, and the resulting celebrity brought him great pleasure.

Through the years every aspect of Tim's life has been touched by gaming. He mastered typing thanks to Space Quest, honed his poker skills on The Sierra Network, and learned to hate after a particularly traumatic game of Tecmo Super Bowl.

Today, Tim lives in Chicago with his three kids and strives to find that perfect balance between family, career, and Warcraft. He enjoys broadcasting, martial arts, rock and roll, growing and shaving his beard, singing show tunes to the homeless, and losing at Mario Kart to his lovely, talented, and amazing girlfriend.

In late 2008, Tim became the producer and host of the GameCritics.com Podcast, and he's thrilled to be bringing GameCritics' unique editorial voice to a brand new medium.

I have to be honest…I like the Zune’s screen.

Sorry guys, but the Zune has surpassed the Ipod by far at this point. =P

@Shane:
From an article on GamerBytes on how to play Community Games when they’re not in your region:

Wow, I never realized the community games thing was limited based on country. That really sucks.

I can sort of understand it with NetFlix, but you’d think the games would be available to everyone.

It’s bitter sweet to hear you guys talk about community games as I would love to try some of these titles, but unless you are from America, we miss out (well maybe other countries also).

Being in Australia we do not get netflix or community games. It’s a real shame as some of these titles sounds fanastic. Great podcast anyway.

I just hate the Ipod. I had one for a day and took it back and got a Creative Zen Vision M. I like that player, but it’s only 30 gigs. I’d like to have more room for all the crap I put on there.

Thanks, Dale. We knew going in that we disagreed pretty strongly about a few of the games, and that brought a different energy to the show. One-sided debates aren’t terribly interesting.

And I hope we aren’t too late to save Mike from Zune Hell. I’m so sorry, friend.

Very nice show guys. Great exchange about the controls, Little Red Riding Hood’s Zombie BBQ and Weapon of Choice.

I think you dropped the ball when Mike Bracken brought up the fact he was thinking about buying a Zune. Friends don’t let friends buy Zune.
