Title: GamingSteve in the media!!
Post by: FoxSpirit on February 22, 2006, 07:40:19 am
Yep, got my new PcGames (German magazine) today and guess what? Stephen Glicker is noted. Actually, he got almost half a page quoting him left and right on his text about Beelzebub 3 from Snowstorm.
They described Steve as someone who is up to his head in rumours and has a lot of inside connections. Maybe we'll see some new members from this.

Way to go, Steve  :D

Wow, that is a bit scary... What magazine was it exactly (which issue and what is on the cover?). I might be able to find it in Manhattan without too much trouble (there are a lot of foreign magazine shops here).

He lives in Austria and I am sure they sell German game magazines over there.

It's also up on their page http://www.pcgames.de/?article_id=450001, probably not the entire article, but they call Steve an industry veteran. What's intersting is that some comments are not sure if Steve is reliable :D
You know, if I didn't go here as often and didn't listen to the podcast, I might not believe that guy that quotes "unnamed sources at Blizzard". BUT the overall impression is that this news bit is real. They then go on flaming about other Blizzard games deserving a sequel (namely Star Craft vs. Diablo). They should listen to Steves podcast more often and they'd know that SC2 is far far away ;)
The news was released on the 6th of Feb, so I guess the article is in the Feb issue of PC Games (3/2006) with TES 4: Oblivion on the cover. You can even download it as a pdf for 3 € http://www.pcgames.de/?menu=0300

I do not really like this mag btw. They were Germanys biggest PC gaming mag (don't know if they still are, but they are still pretty big), but very formal and stiff imho. BUT and that's probably why most comments don't consider Steve unreliable, PC Games is pretty reliable and have most facts straight. (Though they used to have some "exclusive pre-release tests" (reads: we played an Alpha for half an hour under developer supervision....but they stopped doing that)
The same publisher (Computec, one of the big German gaming mag publishers (the other one's IDG basically)) also publishs the German EDGE btw (which is getting better and better (just translations though, but that's fine imho) every issue).

Good for you Steve!  Your fame is pretty much assured.  Just remember us little people when the next magazine crowns you with the title "Supreme Oracle of the Gaming World"   ;D

Is this anything like the last time, when you were going to "revolutionize how we think of podcasts" by adding the new theme music? ;)

My guess is some sort of Collosal giant monster... I'm close right? Like Godzilla or something.
