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 would prefer the content to tell more stories in the wasteland itself, or maybe expand the borders a tiny bit to add some more encounters in keeping with the open world design. Ahh well, you are still my game of the year, but now you have a… Read more »
Yeah, as we were recording last night I felt kind of bad when Brad and I talked about playing through the DLC and Chi didn’t have the option to play it at all. My hope is that it’s just a temporary exclusivity thing. Everyone deserves to at least have the level cap lifted.
PS3 Didn’t get the DLC for one of the best games in 2008, So I didn’t get a raise my level cap or get to go fight in fucking Alaska, or wear the coolshit chinese power armor.
I’m just jealous.
