Seriously, this guy is a genius when it comes to the video game industry. Go listen to some of his 'Sessler's Something' videos on Rev3, and you might change your mind. I didn't care for him while he was on XPlay, but realized how intellectual the guy was once I started subscribing to his videos.

I suppose that makes sense, though I'd guess he'd have to stay fairly close to his roots (maybe a tech blog or something) given this particular skills and experience.  I thought he was okay on X-play, but I don't think I've seen him do anything since.  YMMV.

Ever since he threw a temper tantrum at the broes before hoes trophy I stopped caring about him. A shame, I liked his show on g4tv

I also liked him on X-Play when G4 was a gamers channel, especially with Morgan. Him going to Rev3 though... kinda made me question his views sometimes on there....

Disappointing, always liked his hear his take on gaming, but if he gave a low score to a game someone liked he should be killed.
Why have discourse when the hive mind is so much more comfortable? 5/5

Imma go watch some EC on youtube to feel better.

You should be comended for not retiring back when you turned 65 like most people do.

 

 

As to your reviews(which is almost the only thing I know you for), some how you always seemed to side with 360 when it was convienient to do so, except when it was undeniable the Playstation game was amazing to attempt to not discredit yourself, and being on X-play I guess that figures but I had hoped for a  lot more.

 

And though I havent seen you on tv for several years, and never really agreed with any but a few of your reviews, and though reviews on the run and attack of the show stole my attention from x-play a long time ago, I will still notice you are not here.

 

Thats something isnt it?

 

Good luck in the future.

From what I read he just wanted to try something else not leave gaming altogether, it's whatever though once he left xplay and DirectTV got rid of G4 I stopped caring about him.
