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?)
