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’m not sure if I’m thinking of the same mission as you (I thought it was the ‘[Truth]’ mission, but am not 100%). In any case, I’ve put 190 hours into MGS and feel that, unfortunately, the story is a huge letdown, even by Kojima’s standards. I have other ethical issues with the game too, that… Read more »

helldivers? sounds pretty run-of-the-mill, top down twin stick shooter? yawn…and then you play it! oh my god is the game amazing, it channels everythig that a good nerd should love, in a game that you and your 3 buddies can play on the same sofa!

if you guys all played it together can you cover it in a future podcast? id love to hear your thoughts on the theme and setting (plus tales of smearing each other across the surface of a planet with a badly timed airstrike!)

Thanks for the quick turnaround between the latest podcasts guys. Not sure if I’m into the dating advice mailbag, but it’s easy enough to skip for myself. if the crew or listeners are into it then so be it. Is this what it comes to you when you get to 40 ? And my comments thumbs up goes to Mike Suskie for pointing out in his review for Rise of the Tomb Raider ( I just finished it ) for how broken the Stealth is in the early part of that game. And the stealth is still shitty although slightly… Read more »
