After a busy couple of years we’ve finally brought back the Legendary Benheck.com Podcast! You can check it out, along with all back episodes, by clicking here.
We’re back! In this newest, thrilling episode we discuss:
1) The Lost finale. Spoilers abound!
2) Smart Phones and things that are cool about the iPad.
3) Red Dead Redemption, AKA “Grand Theft Horse”. Also, how “Dances with Wolves” isn’t a Western, but “Roadhouse” is.
4) Actors who don’t seem to age, like Keith David and Kevin Kline. (Richard Dreyfuss is not in this club)
5) More Star Wars Episode 1 impressions than you probably care to hear, plus the movies “9” versus “Nine”.
In this thrilling new episode we’re joined again by Dale Nauertz for fun and profit. Topics include:
1) The iPad, iLiver, Apple Store and new pinball machine ideas.
2) TV shows that need to die and the zeitgeist of Mad Men.
3) Do celebrity spokespeople actually cause products to sell? Which do we find effective?
Podcast time again. In this thrilling episode we discuss some upcoming movies, mostly Ghostbusters 3, and the difference between who they should cast and who they probably will.
We also talk about some new games coming down the pike and my trip to the Games for Health conference two weeks ago.
Only 6 weeks late, unlike Port Washington!
In this latest late podcast we discuss the “race to the bottom” in entertainment, specifically how TV is turning into a reality dumping ground, movies are dumbed down to death, and the Wii is full of crappy shovelware.
We’re back again with a new podcast. In this exciting episode we discuss some user-suggested topics, including:
- Windows 7 impressions.
- The future of guitar games.
- The DTV switchover delay (which leads to talking about the stimulus package, sorry)
- Movies of 2009 we’re looking forward too + most often destroyed landmarks in movies.
We hope you enjoy the ride!
We’re back, and on time even, with our latest podcast!
In this white-knuckle episode we discuss the onslaught of movie remakes coming down the pike, specifically focusing on “Romaning the Stone”, which apparently wasn’t good enough the first time around. We also discuss movies that they should try remaking, and ones they better not even think about.
Our second topic is “Games that were ahead of their time” in which we discuss games that were, well, ahead of their time, and/or contained features that didn’t become standard until much later. Download Movies Online.
We’re back! In today’s election-themed episode, we discuss how a (the?) Barack Obama win could greatly help Hollywood financially (but not in the ways anyone might think) Fallout 3 (um, since it takes place in Washington DC?) and Dead Space, which is awesome.
We also discuss how action movies have changed over the decades based off administrations and the possible reasons, the Republican link to great action movies, plus a retrospective on our making of Possumus Man. Enjoy!
It’s time for another podcast! Yes, we haven’t been keeping up the normal 2 week schedule but hey, there’s a lot of stuff going on, and we don’t get paid to do the podcast, so unfortunately it sometimes becomes a backburner item.
In this thrilling episode we discuss Apple VS Microsoft, Laptops VS Desktops, and – believe it or not – POLITICS! With all the hubbub going on with the banking bailouts and the election we just couldn’t resist…
Plus an awesome contest, in honor of Mega Man 9 –Design the lamest Mega Man villain robot ever!
- Must include artwork, the primary weapon and their main weakness.
- Bonus points for making an 8-bit accurate “pixelated” version.
- Even more bonus points for using an existing item ending in “man” as the name. Such as “Congress Man” (prints money to shoot at you) or “Leslie Man” (emits vomit on Steve Carrell).
- Contest ends upon publication of the next podcast (roughly 2 to 3 weeks).
The 2 best entries will win a Guitar Hero III wireless guitar with a custom Benheck.com faceplate! I have a bunch of these left over from the foot pedal project, so I figured why not unload a few? You can even choose Xbox 360 or PS3 version!

In this thrilling episode we have 2 main topics:
Topic 1 regards the balance between video game difficulty/length/price. 18 years ago (has it been that long?) we were paying $50 for a game that could be beat in half an hour. Now people think $15 for Castle Crashers or Braid is too much. New games now run $60, but cost 10 times as much to produce as $50 games did during the 16-bit era. At what point did the perception change?
It’ll happen. Just wait.
Topic 2 involves movies once again, specifically how the success of revived franchise Indiana Jones and rebooted franchise Batman will probably kill all creativity (what little there was left) in Hollywood for the next 10 years. Just this morning I read Fox is considering a “Daredevil” reboot, so it’s already begun. By 2010 every summer movie will probably involve superheroes, just watch. This of course brings us to a familiar topic of what old movies Hollywood should remake.
