Show #44 TMNT Special

Welcome back to Bargain Bin Radio!  We have been on a slight hiatus due to SUMMER!  As you all know, we live in Northern Minnesota, and summer here lasts precisely 45 days then it is back to 1 million days of winter, so we are enjoying.  One of the many things we love to enjoy during this time of the year are the summer blockbusters (thanks Jaws).  Coming soon will be Guardians of the Galaxy, then 1 week later Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, followed the next week by Expendables 3.  August is looking pretty actiony.

With that in mind, we decided to do an episode mostly devoted to TMNT.  We do tend to go on mini tangents, but we actually manage to stay on track for most of the show.  If you like what you hear, you can download the show in iTunes podcast, for FREE, leave a rating, or comment here or on facebook.  We really appreciate you taking your time to listen to us and comment.

Thank you!


Also, as promised, here are a few little videos dedicated to TMNT fun.

Welcome Back.

In Show #41 we discuss what plans Marvel has and what we would like to see over the next 14 years they have planned out, along with our SPOILER review of Captain America the Winter Soldier.  If you have not seen the movie, the spoiler review begins at about the 25 minute mark. So listen in and pause once you get to the spoiler alert then come back once you have seen the movie!  Our official review is: See it in theaters! Buy it on Blu-Ray!  Also check out our other posts for our first video capture segment called A Guy, A Girl, and A Game Machine.  Enjoy and please subscribe in iTunes for FREE and find us on facebook.  You can even click on the little apple or F symbol in the upper left hand corner of the page.  And please comment and leave questions.  We would love to hear from you.

Thanks so much!


New content in progress…

So we are working on our new segment: A Guy, A Girl, and a Game Machine.  It has been interesting to learn how the game capture box works along with how steep of a learning curve we still have when it comes to computer type things.  But through perseverance, trial and error, and a bunch of cursing we have finally gotten our fancy little piece of technology to work.  The new video segment will feature Josh and myself playing a game, from many different categories and systems, along with out normal pithy and witty commentary.  If you have any games you would like to see either or both of use play, please leave a message below or find us on facebook and leave a message there.  We are hoping to have a great time with this, so the more interaction from our community the better.

Thanks again!


Show #40

Hello all.

So here we are again!  Thank you for coming back and listening in to our little show.  This week we talk about the much anticipated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie that is due to come out in August…One week after Guardians of the Galaxy.  Do the Turtles have what it takes to go up against Marvel?  What do you think?  We also talk about the ending of the TV series How I Met Your Mother, what we thought about the series finale, and if we enjoyed it overall.  Thanks again for checking in with us and make sure to download our podcast in iTunes (for FREE), listen to us on the website media player, or download an app for the windows phone store or android store to listen to us on the go.

Come back later this weekend for our Captain America: The Winter Soldier review, and next week for our new video segment called A Guy, A Girl, and a Game Machine.  Check out the trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles below.

Show #39

Hello Everyone!  Thank you for joining in for another episode from Bargain Bin Radio.  How are you doing?  Let us know!  We want to hear from our listeners, don’t be shy.  In this episode we discuss some important issues when it comes to spending your hard earned money…Game content and game length.  Are video games judged more harshly than movies because of how personal they end up being?  By this I mean that if you spend 60 hours playing Dark Souls on the PS3, are you (the consumer) more likely to be more critical than when you spend only two hours or so watching a movie.  With this question in mind, the production budget for games is fast reaching that of big movies, along with the specific talent and skills it takes to code a game and program it, and you are still only being charged a fair price, not a price that keeps rolling over based on hours played (in general).  So what do you think?  Would you spend $60 on a game that lasts only 6 hours?  Comment below and let us know what you think.

In movie news, a new trailer for X-Mes: Days of Future Past released, and we would like to share it with everyone.  Keep a close eye out for Nicholas Hoult who portrays Beast/Hank McCoy.  He looks decisively unbeastly when first shown in the trailer.  What could be going on?
