Scott Johnson Brings Out The Humor In Video Game Culture

GeeksThumb.jpg

Scott Johnson, cartoonist and hardcore gamer is a funny guy. As CEO of Frog Pants Studios he spends his time and talent producing a various webcomics and podcasts that cater to the hardcore gaming and tech community.

One of his more popular comics is the bi-monthly series Extra Life. Started in 2001, Scott's blend of wry humor and personal observations of gaming culture make for terribly funny strips that accurately express the climate of its surrounding community. This strip was published by Crispy Gamer until its closure in January of this year.

Scott also pens the popular Experience Points that draws from his apparent love of World of Warcraft and the general community surrounding all things MMORPG.

Scott's many Podcasts supplement his comic's snarky humor and are as diverse as gaming culture itself. Ranging from his now defunct Extra Life Radio to the iPhone app and tech podcast AppSlappy, Johnson covers the gamut of geekery with his affable nature and personal touch. You can tell he loves his work and lives for gaming culture.

Another of his popular podcasts, The Instance, also has a burgeoning guild in WoW named Alea Iacta Est or AIE. Anyone who listens is invited to join the 450,000 plus members in one of the largest guilds in North American servers. Scott plays a level 80 Orc Hunter named Gerp.

Is that the AIE that's on Earthen Ring? If so, they are a bunch of tools.

Nice, Jeremy, thanks for that.

Just a quick (and slightly alarmed) correction. We're *not* half a million members strong - more like 4000.

If anyone would like to find out more about the guild (and hopefully see how wrong Jeremy is), you can find us at www.aie-guild.org.
