[MP3 AUDIO]




What in the world are we talking about this week?

CP 45: The Heavy Unlocks


A week with the Heavy Unlocks. What do your hosts think about them? Chaos was busy getting his son’s foot sewn back on from a dispenser malfunction accident, so he was not able to make this podcast.

[MP3 AUDIO]




But don’t fret, there’ still a bunch of stuff worth listening to:

CP 44: Heavy Update


With the Heavy Unlocks just released, we discuss what is coming for the heavy and other thoughts about TF2.

[MP3 AUDIO]




CP 41: The Kyle Kainer Episode


We had some buttons returned that were sent for a donation, and I don’t know how to get in touch with him, so why not just name the episode after him? He’s got to listen in now, right?

[MP3 AUDIO]




Well, that’s not all we talk about, so here’s a few more things:

CP 40: Valve at E3


I know the title sounds like we went to E3 and covered the valve interviews. Well, we didn’t. We read them online, and we’re going to comment on them! So I made a banner to match the coverage! But, here is a little bit more of what you can expect:

[MP3 AUDIO]




CP 39: Bagel Free


Well, no bagels this week folks. But plenty of Team Fortress 2 discussion and Listener contributions and contests galore! Back from PlayOnCon and Chaos is back from vacation!

[MP3 AUDIO]

[MP3 AUDIO]




CP 37: Fastlane Impressions


Mr. Eagle has some time to join us in this episode, “The Week After”, to discuss a creation started by he and JohnMazz. There are more people working on it now, and they’d like to get more input, so be sure to follow the link below to help them out.

[MP3 AUDIO]




And here’s just a bit more of what you can expect:

HUDDA HUDDA HUDDA! Get ready for, a BBQ boys and girls! This week a new update of the Pyro class was unleashed and the boys of Control Point extiguish the rumors and add fuel to the fire on the hot topic of the Pyro Unlocks. But wait, that isn’t all.

[MP3 AUDIO]




After taking off the mask, here’s a few more things you can expect to hear about:

CP 35: In Drag


Viewers asked for some Q&A, I guess above and beyond letting folks submit questions each week, so we took some time in the live chat room to take some questions, but that’s at the end of the show.

[MP3 AUDIO]




There’s plenty that goes on before that, and here’s just a little of what you can expect:

CP 34: Steel

[MP3 AUDIO]




Here’s just a few more tidbits you can expect:

CP 32: CROM!


What’s going on? Crom?! What does that mean? Well, we know that as players of TF2, you’re probably also video gamers in general, so when something new and big comes out, there’s a good chance we’ll talk about it.

[MP3 AUDIO]




But don’t worry, we don’t ramble on the whole night about Conan! There’s a great deal more.
Here’s just a few more tidbits you can expect:

CP 31: Big Bad Wolf


Big Bad Wolf? Not really. We’ve gotten to a point where our TF2 map discussions are swiftly becoming roadkill on the highway of gaming.

[MP3 AUDIO]




Here’s just a few more tidbits you can expect:

CP 30: WWW (Where’s Wes Wilson?)


Where’s Wes Wilson? I’ll tell you. Out sick! So everyone send your good thoughts his way so he can be well in time for the next edition.

[MP3 AUDIO]




And as you know, when we are missing one of the hosts, we miss other things. This week, it was Warpath. /Shrug — you know you hate the map too!
Here’s just a few more tidbits you can expect:

CP 29: Goldrush (Overview)


Still in excruciating pain from their stomping by the guys over at Evil Avatar, the 4 hosts do there best to limp to the microphone and bring you this special edition of Control Point! They will also be attending anger management classes afterwards.

[MP3 AUDIO]





Here’s just a few more tidbits you can expect:

CP 26: Labor

[MP3 AUDIO]




Here just a few more tidbits you can expect:

CP 25: Modcast


Because of some issues with the Ooberservers agreement, the mods take over this podcast.

But don’t be surprised if your 4 lovable hosts make an appearance on today’s show. Ok, but seriously. This week we had an issue where the first 1/2 of the podcast was destroyed somehow during the recording (remember how I said, ALWAYS make a backup — well we didn’t)
Anyways, we still have the Listener Contributions section, so instead of not airing this one or holding off till we could re-record, we felt we should go ahead and put it out there, so without further ado, Episode 25:

CP 22: OmegaCon


Every once in awhile, we visit conventions or lan parties and do a live podcast from there. Such was the case with our visit to OmegaCon. The one thing you can almost always expect from live podcast are technical difficulties, and this one was no exception.

[MP3 AUDIO]




We also had special guests, ClydeFrog and Neko! who came down and met us at OmegaCon.

CP 21: Tower of Babble


This episode starts off a little harsh on the audio since someone, and I’m not naming names, forgot to hit record, or possibly a Jelly Fish stumbled in and turned it off while he (again.. no names) wasn’t looking.

[MP3 AUDIO]




But don’t fret! We have backups and though the audio might not sound as good, it will get better through the podcast, as the Jelly Fish sauntered away.

CP 20: Badlands


Badlands you gotta live it every day
