15 Minutes of Game – Episode 5

15 Minutes of Game LogoIn this episode, we run a little bit long, but it’s for a good cause. We ramble on about a fewmiscellaneous topics as we get things warmed up, but then we get into the meat and potatoes – Why do you run a community site? It’s an annual discussion that seems to crop up after convention season every year, and we were discussing it over IM. Naturally, that means we brought it to the show. We also went  a little over with some “after hours” discussion about a topic Jon brought up on Twitter today.

We could likely have spent much more time talking about Twitter, and will undoubtedly do so in future episodes. If there’s anything specific you’d like us to talk about, remember that we can be reached via email (15minutesofgame [at] gmail [dot] com) or on twitter (@15MinutesOfGame). Shoot us any questions, comments, etc, and I promise we’ll do everything we can to get them in.

The Formula for the Perfect Little Soldiers

A while back, you may have seen a little illustration I did of the Master Chief inspired by the Power Puff Girls. See, I was a big fan of the PPG back in the days, to the point of owning the DVD’s.
