Other The G-Man Named The Most Mysterious Video Game Character Of All Time According to JoystickDivision

It’s no secret that Half-Life is a pretty awesome game series.

It’s received numerous honors, from Game of the Year to Greatest Game of All Time.

But so have its characters. Empire Magazine, through Empireonline, placed Gordon Freeman at the top of their Top 50 Video Game Characters of All Time list. GameSpot’s “Greatest Video Game Hero of All Time” poll ended with Gordon taking the #1 spot.

And the list goes on and on. We could be here listing all the honors the characters of Half-Life and Portal have received all day.

But we’re here for a reason.

Control Point Podcast Returning? (Update: They are back!)

Other Control Point Podcast Returning? (Update: They are back!)

UPDATE: Episode #101 has just been posted on their official website. Welcome back, Control Point!

Started in November of 2007 (a month after the initial release of Team Fortress 2), the Control Point podcast became one of the most popular and prominent Team Fortress 2 podcasts in the community (alongside others such as Kritzkast and Friendly Fire). Throughout its history, the hosts would jokingly hint about the podcast ending on the 100th episode, and thus the podcast eventually came to an end in January of 2010 with the release of the 100th episode.

Over a year after the 100th episode was released, there has been no talk about the podcast ever returning. However, recently the TF2 Blog teased about a countdown that suddenly appeared on their website. Members of the Dead Workers Party community were quick to dissect the countdown code and look for any possible clues that may lead to a return of the Control Point podcast. When the timer hit 0, a full website was launched for the podcast, which used to reside on the official Dead Workers Party website (but now redirects to the new one). However, a much-speculated new episode has yet to be published, if any, and the hosts are remaining tight-lipped about what exactly the countdown entailed.

Only time will tell about any possible return of the podcast, and if it does, it will most likely be met with many open arms considering the ground-breaking Team Fortress 2 news as of late.
