15 Minutes of Game – Episode 12

15 Minutes of Game LogoIn this day and age, do you really even need a forum to build a community? That’s the question that Jon and I tackle this week, straight from a twitter request. We each take a different side of the question, and hopefully give you something to think about with your own community building.

15 Minutes of Game – The Post-Show

15 Minutes of Game LogoHey everyone –

As we’ve mentioned, Jon and I spend a lot of time chatting before and after the recordings of 15 Minutes of Game. In fact, it’s often where a lot of our show topics come from. Several listeners have asked us on Twitter if we’d ever record one of these chats and post it. We’re still not sure why you want to hear it, but after our last show, I hit the record button midway through a Green Lantern conversation, and now all of your wishes and dreams can come true! Below is a special hour-long chat that we’re calling our Thanksgiving Holiday Special for reasons unbeknownst to me. But give it a listen anyway if you want some insights into how our conversation topics come about!

15 Minutes of Game – Episode 11

15 Minutes of Game LogoFor Episode 11, we brought back one of our Facebook topics of the day, specifically gaming music. Jon’s a big fan of music in games, so we took some time to discuss how important it it, who we thought had the best music, and how videogame music compares to other mediums. Also, we spent almost an hour rambling on about various topics after the show. We recorded our post-show ramblings, and we’ll be putting that up this weekend for thos folks who’ve been asking what our pre- and post-show conversations are like. Be sure to look out for that in a few days!
