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?)


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.”

Does anyone know if Advent of Indies is happening this year? I looked it up today and didn't find any updates on their Twitter since January.

I brought that cake I made into work and it disappeared fast. Maybe if I lose my job I can just make a living selling cakes on the end of my street.

My review-in-progress of Just Cause 3: Explosions - good. Grappling hook - good. Flying - good. Driving - an abomination. 8/10.

I was happy to have never spoiled myself the final boss of Splatoon's campaign. That was one of the best boss fights ever and I absolutely love the credits track. So relaxing. [youtube][/youtube]

Sometimes, on more dreary days, I make a smiley face with sliced-pickle eyes and bacon grin in my lunch-burger. It fills me up all the same, but I feel a warm sense of accomplishment, achievement and satisfaction on top of it.

When I was a lad, I loved this game something fierce. [img][/img] Anyone else ever play the tie in Small Soldiers games? Maybe it's nostalgia, but I remember them being not too bad.

Finally got my surface pro 3. Holy shit I love this little guy. And Windows 10 is better than I thought.
Putting more effort into iOS game review than African American history book report. This is not what Dr. King died for. Or maybe he did, I wouldn't know because I'm not doing the book report. Wha-hey!!
