Thank goodness he finally shaved his head. It looks much better. I don't know what he had going on before.

I'd rather him go to gametrailers. Love for him to be the new voice of the video reviews. GaintBomb is ok I guess. They seem less serious and play around more, and Adam seems to be a pretty serious guy.

I don't think he would fit in at GB any less than Tricky does.

I dunno, with GB at CBSi, I could actually see the Sess joining them or, more likely, joining Gamespot.

Holy shit I remember those days. I havn't pulled up Gamespot since they fired him for his review. So I'd hate to see Sessler go there. He deserves better. I'd rather see him go to GT.

I always figured he kept his hair because of some kind of contractual BS. If you've ever seen him in person or pictures of him where he's not directly facing the camera, you could see that his hair was almost completely gone anyway.

I remember when G4 interviewed Reggie about the WiiU right after Ninty's conference, Sessler was the only one asking any questions worth a damn. While the other two clowns were like, "Reggie, lemme suck yo deek" (paraphrasing here), Sessler was all aggro with the hard journalistic questions: "1080P? IS IT 1080P, GOD DAMN YOU." That's how we got that confirmed, iirc.

In other words, Sessler does his job. Charming personality, too; I don't agree with him on everything, but he's a cool guy in my book. Best of luck to him!

The Shane hate is pretty unwarranted. The guy is pretty reasonable whenever he's on Bonus Round and it rarely feels like he's pulling a fanboy for any particular system. Some journos that I absolutely adore definitely get overly enthusiastic about certain subjects, but at the end of the day, Shane - even on IW - comes off pretty even keeled. Maybe a little overbearing for some, but definitely fair.

I am perfectly ambivalent about Satterfield. Although, he did vote SMG2 for GOTY in 2010, so I like him for that. ;P

You see, I've never really noticed this. AAA games get 5/5, everything else gets 4 or less. If it's Japanese it can't get higher than 3 unless it's super-hyped like FFXIII or Xenoblade Chronicles. X-Play's reviews have always been formulaic. Whether a game is good or not, I know how he's going to review it beforehand. It's the same problem that inundates the rest of the field.

Well, that's G4's reviews not his. And so you're saying only JRPG's that are popular here will get good review scores? That seems about right...

Adam Sessler doesn't review the games, he just hosts the show.

I don't have issues with him either. Most of the guys gaf likes tend to really annoy me, so I guess I like somebody who's not waving pom-poms for one side or the other.

It's incredible how vibrant and youthful she looks in person. Seemed to have a real pleasant disposition. And yeah, she does have a badass jawline, and that's cool with me.

He does review games. In fact, his recent 50% score for KoA:Reckoning got my attention.

Kevin Pereira is leaving Attack of the Show.

Between this and Sessler, I'm guessing one of two things:

A.) G4 is about to have its image made-over once again. This is naturally something it's desperately needed, because I think it can be universally agreed that the whole imitation-flavor Spike thing isn't really working out.

2.) G4 is about to go out of business.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are slashing costs as much as possible. They probably will just hire a bunch of people fresh out of college to host their shows to stay afloat for the time being.
