Get To Know P*N’s Staff: Steven Artlip

twitter back

At Platform Nation we make up a diverse group of gamers, and I would to give you an in depth look at the staff of your favorite gaming website.   The staff has come together and put together their own Biography’s to share with the community.

Now let me share P*N’s mission statement with you.

Platform Nation is a collaboration of several gaming podcasts who decided it would be best for our gamers, the podcasters and the rest of the gaming community if they came together to share efforts. Together we have a larger voice in the community for the gamers that we strive to speak for. We share the same forums and for the most part, share the same listeners. After all, we are a community, not a network.

Platform Nation, United We Game.

Without further ado, I would like to give you a look at our first staff member and leader of Platform Nation, you all know him by Steve519, here’s what Steve had to say:

Name: Steven Artlip
Age 29
Podcast: I don’t podcast on P*N, I do have a pet project over at
How long podcasting: Since March 06 I believe
What games types do you enjoy: I love FPS’s the most, Call of Duty’s Modern Warfare is by far the game I enjoy the most (at this time MW2 isn’t out). I like my military shooters with a touch of arcadyness.

As for about me I’m the Editor-in-Chief of this awesome website,  A site that we started for our community and to give us and our fellow podcasters a stronger voice in the community, with gamers, developers and publishers.

Before all my gaming time I actually spent 5 years of active duty in the United States Marine Corps working on CH-46 helicopters, those were some really great times.

When my time was up in the Marine Corps I moved back to Seattle (where I was born) and started working for the US Post Office, a job that I am still doing, full time, to today.

Many years ago I started my gaming “career” as a podcaster over at XBL Radio and that is where and when I really started to break into the community and when I really started seeing how great our community really is.  After about a couple years of doing that show I left to start up Platform Nation and if you have been one of those that have followed us from day one then you know of how we have evolved the site into what it is today, a thriving gaming community that cares more about our readers and listeners more then anything else.    All this while trying to juggle a full-time job at the Post Office as well as trying to raise my awesome 18 month old daughter with my amazing wife to the best of my ability.

My XBL GT, PSN ID, Twitter and Facebook is Steve519.

Well Platform Nation Community that was the first look at one of the staff’s bio’s and what a better way to kick it off  then with our fearless leader.  Steve does a lot of behind the scenes work that keeps P*N up and running.  So if you enjoyed Steve’s bio stay tuned as we will be bringing you a look at a different staff member every couple of days of your favorite gaming website P*N.
