I wrote the bio (actually, it's on the site as well now). I also came up with the name of the company SuperNova (well, it was my company).

That Supernova Stars game I meet with those guys a couple of years ago at E3 and they were giving out beers with the name Supernova on them, so I got/stole like 10 of them and brought them back with me to NYC. I still have them ... I can only imagine how bad that beer must be after 4+ years.
lol on that!

its too bad that the development died when it did, it had ALOT of potential to become a great game, but for some reason they couldn't find a damn publisher :P and the mare crisium site no longer exists....

Is there a reason why you can say the company now, but you couldn't before? Just curious. I knew it all along. ;)

I'm surprised nobody's posted about that special thing at the end of the podcast. Then again, I'm really not sure what phrase to use to try and search for it..

Wow, I can't believe that question finally got answered of mine (I actually forgot about it.) Anyway, Steve I love AVP 2, but you said in the podcast to never play AVP 1. (was actually going to try to get my hands on it) Anyway, why not?

I assume you mean the "it's gonna be big" part. That sounds exciting, I don't have a clue what "it" could be. But millions?! My mind is itching to know what it is.

AVP 1 had a ton of problems in it. It wasn't that well balanced, you couldn't save anywhere, things like that. It wasn't done by the same development team, only stick with AVP 2, it's a much better game.

As for "the thing" that I'm working on I really can't talk about it just yet. As it gets closer I will talk about it more, but it is amazingly exciting!

Crap. Now how am I going to sleep? ;) Now I'm wondering when "it" is. I have no idea how to judge "closer." Oh well, I'm sure we'll know when you can tell us.

I have a few ideas.

1.  Some kind of a radio show.

2.  Some kind of a TV show.

3.  SOme kind of a magzine.

4.  Steve works in conjunction with the Spore team somehow to deliver some kind of podcast or something.

5.  The Gaming Steve podcast migrates somewhere, leading to more popularity.

I dont see any of those things attracting *Millions* of listeners. My only guess is the revalation of something ridiculously huge... or a competition to give away something ridiculously huge.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

My first thought would be a satellite radio show like on XM or Siriuss.

Or Steve gets a Nobel prize for al his good work for the world.

But Millions? how is he planning to do that. Nah, we will have to wait to know that.

Fantastic Episode once again Steve. Really appreciate the work you do.

I'm really glad you did AVP2. It's a truely brilliant game and I've been touting its virtues for a while now. I only wish I wasn't traumatised by Aliens at the age of 7 by my father, so I could play the AVP2 Marine campaign. =)
