All Sid Meier ever did for video games was create Civilization. Oh, we think that merits a podcast red carpet! The legendary designer will be our guest on Kotaku Talk Radio this week. Get ready to call in on Wednesday.
Meier will be our guest for the hour, talking about Civilizations past, present and, if we're lucky, future. And he'll be taking your calls live. With Civilization set to hit both Facebook and PCs this year (the latter in the form of Civ V) it's a good time to be talking to Meier. But we don't just want to grill him about games. Let's find out what a veteran thinks of this industry and get some great stories about his past, shall we?
That's where you come in. Prepare to ask stellar questions.
No offense to our previous guests, but Meier trumps the Kotaku Talk Radio guest-appearance trail-blazing of David Jaffe, Amy Hennig, Ken Levine, Tim Schafer, Greg Zeschuk, Todd Howard, Cliff Bleszinski, Jeremiah Slaczka, Jeff Gerstmann, Jordan Thomas, Stig Asmussen, Major Nelson and Randy Pitchford. Those folks are great, but Sid Meier is Sid Meier.
Look for a reminder post about the podcast at 11:00 AM mountain time (1:00 PM ET) on Wednesday. The post will include call-in info so you can ask your questions. The show will be live a few minutes after the hour. I'll expect to hear you calling our switchboard then.
Subscribe to "Kotaku Talk Radio" in iTunes to continue to follow our show that way. We'll also continue to provide direct downloads of the show a couple of hours after showtime each Wednesday.
