Congrats: Adam Sessler gets promoted to Editor-in-Chief of G4 Games Content

4:20 PM on 12.18.2008 // Nick Chester

Say whatever you want about Adam Sessler (and because you're hiding behind the Internet, you very well may). But having hung out with him on a few occassions, I can confirm that he's good people. And he also knows his games. 

So it's good news to hear that the X-Play host has been promoted to Editor-in-Chief of G4 Games Content. He'll now be keeping an eye on all editorial content for X-Play, as well as overseeing the gaming content for the entire G4 network. Sessler will continue to host X-Play, and I hope will continue his weekly online rants, as I'm easily amused. 

I look forward to congratulating Adam in person, and the confused look on his face as he knows he remembers me from somewhere but can't quite figure it out. (Hint: It involved drinks. But doesn't it always?)

“X-PLAY” HOST AND GAMING INDUSTRY VETERAN ADAM SESSLER
PROMOTED TO EDITOR IN CHIEF, G4 GAMES CONTENT

                                                                           
Los Angeles, CA. December 17, 2008 – “X-Play” host and one of the most respected names in videogame journalism, Adam Sessler, has been promoted to Editor-in-Chief, G4 Games Content.   In his new role, Sessler will oversee editorial content for “X-Play,” the most watched videogame show on television, as well as all gaming content for the network.  Sessler will continue to serve as host of “X-Play,” along with Morgan Webb. The announcement was made today by Neal Tiles, President, G4.

On “X-Play,” Sessler brings fans the latest news and information on the constantly evolving world of gaming, including live demos of the titles gamers are most excited to see, exclusive interviews with the biggest names in videogames, sneak peeks at games still in development and behind-the-scenes profiles with gaming’s biggest developers. Sessler leads daily comprehensive coverage for the network, as well as news gathering from key industry events such as CES, E3 and Tokyo Game Show.  

Sessler has been front and center on the most watched videogame shows on television for over 10 years including nearly 1,000 episodes as the host of “X-Play.” Prior to “X-Play,” Sessler hosted “Extended Play” and “Gamespot TV” for TechTV and ZDTV respectively. Throughout his career he has conducted interviews with the industry’s top luminaries, secured an unprecedented number of exclusives and broken numerous news stories on “X-Play.”

“Adam is an incredible resource and has helped position G4 and “X-Play” as the center of the gaming universe,” said Neal Tiles, President G4 TV.  “We are lucky to have an industry expert with his experience, wisdom and passion, as well as his strong relationships throughout the gaming community, leading our team.”

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

I enter the Gamestop. I set a Toad plushie atop a Yoshi plushie. I set Mario to go down on Kirby. I leave the Gamestop.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.
