Don't worry, loves, Episode 10 of The Cavalry is here!  And this week, we have a very special guest--John Horstmann from The Payload podcast! The episode also features host Kevin Ellis (Multizord), Stephen Parrish (Tankzord) and Matt Zornes (slambo).

Seriously kids, don't do drugs, and also probably don't eat at Chipotle until they figure their stuff out.  With that said, the episode begins with interviewing John Horstmann about his history in gaming and as a podcaster.

And then the big news hits. The Overwatch Beta will not return until mid-February!  At which point we can expect a new game mode, maps to support it, a progression system and balance updates. So, plenty to look forward to.  The group speculates what these new features may entail.  A link to the forum post can be found here: http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20421003773 

Next, our Main Discussion segment discusses the life of the game with John Horstmann.  Will we see the same flow of content as we see in other Blizzard titles, will the Proverwatch metagame become stale over time, etc etc etc.

Lastly, this week's "The World Needs More Heroes" is McCree!  It's McCweek. The group goes over how to be the most rootin' tootin' cowboy this side of the Rio Grande. Multi actually gets kind of excited to play him when the Beta comes back (MAYBE).

Episode 9 commences, and due to scheduling issues it is the leanest, meanest one yet!  In that it only features Kevin Ellis (Multizord) and Stephen Parrish (Tankzord). Everyone else is still around, just waiting in the wings for more epic content.

The episode begins with a discussion about ESPN's eSports webpage, which can be found here: http://espn.go.com/esports/

Also, follow @TwitterGaming for more...uhh...gaming stuff from Twitter? https://twitter.com/TwitterGaming

Next, the duo queue discusses the possible impact of Heroes of the Storm master skins on the Overwatch heroes.  Will this be a problem? Yikes.

And lastly, we BREAK IT DOWN with a discussion on Lucio, which...well, just listen to it.  Choose your side of the debate wisely!

Episode 8 of The Cavalry is here, with hosts Kevin Ellis (Multizord), Stephen Parrish (Tankzord), Matt Zornes (Slambo) and a new special guest, Alex Keeler (EndBoss)!

The show begins as EndBoss and Slambo describe their upcoming venture, The Overcasters, and what all they will bring to the Overwatch community. Look forward to plenty of content to come out of them when the beta gets fired back up!

News is light, but the details about that "Happy New Gear" sweepstakes are here: https://blizzard.wishpond.com/overwatch-giveaway/

Next, the group discusses the following video on stack-able abilities by the Learn Overwatch channel: http://youtu.be/Np2xjpf4Z9U

Then, without any real additional fanfare, the group goes into discussing giant pink robots.  Not every podcast is about Korean women piloting mech suits, but damn it, this one is.  D. Va is discussed at length, including her abilities, strengths and weaknesses, and of course how she would function in Heroes of the Storm.  Nerf this!

That about wraps up a somewhat slow news week. If you liked what you heard, please feel free to leave us a review on iTunes or Stitcher, as well as follow us on Twitter @TheCavalryShow, where you can also find a link to our Discord channel.  Again, thanks to EndBoss for joining us this week, and you can find him on Twitter @endbossTV, or @TheOvercasters, as well as on Twitch at twitch.tv/theendboss.

Welcome back, all ye Overwatch Beta hopefuls!  The Cavalry's here once again to talk about stuff in the new year. This week, host Kevin Ellis aka Multizord is joined again by Stephen Parrish (Tankzord), but a new special co-host has appeared! Matt Zornes, aka Slambo is not only the originator of the Zords themselves, but also an Overwatch caster in a group known as The Overcasters!  It just so happens that he also got a ton of Pharah play in, so his input proves extra valuable this episode.

This week's hosts begin with the latest big Blizzard news--Activision-Blizzard has purchased Major League Gaming (MLG) and aspires to start an eSports-centered television station!  An article link about this can be found here:

Next, the crew continues with a discussion on player progression, reacting to last month's Developer Update video with Jeff Kaplan.  If you somehow didn't manage to catch that in the several weeks since it came out, you can watch his beautiful furry face explain things at:

Onto the hero of the week, this time it's Pharah raining justice from above. Considering that the Beta is down, this actually becomes a pretty high level of discussion about Pharah, so enjoy!  She's tons of fun, as Multi is sure to repeat over and over again.

Finally, Community Content shoutout goes out this week to Drawn23, and his reddit post which is an oldie but a goodie: https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/3wtkhf/450_screenshots_of_objectswriting_from_the/
