First – enjoy this video of Sessler getting “Bad Horsed.”
Okay, it’s been quite some time since I actually watched X-Play. Like… since I left Chicago in 2005 and no longer had Comcast and therefore it’s G4 channel. But I DO very much enjoy Sessler’s Soapbox (which I listen to in spurts, but am only maybe a couple months behind on at this point) and only listened to and then stopped listening to The Feed from G4 due to Sessler’s involvement (and then lack thereof.)
But apparently Mr. Sessler and G4 are done playing nice. And the ONLY reason (Morgan Webb is nice enough, but not to keep me paying attention to G4) I had to pay ANY attention to the “TechTV destroyer” G4 has now left the building.
Here’s the story from Kotaku -
Here’s a statement from Sessler’s representative:
Television personality Adam Sessler and TV network G4 are parting ways, with Adam’s last episode as host of G4′s “X-Play” airing on the network today, Wednesday, April 25. Adam has been hosting the show since it first aired as ZDTV’s “Gamespot TV” in July 1998 and he also served as Editor In Chief of games content at G4. His current projects include starring as himself in the Summer 2012 movie “noobz” and consulting with a film production company on theatrical feature adaptations of video games. Adam intends to stay in front of the camera and continue as a key voice within the games industry. He also sings and is available for weddings and bar mitzvahs.
We heard about this news last week via an anonymous source, but we were not able to confirm its validity. According to our sources, Sessler is leaving due to a contractual dispute, and the departure was not on amicable terms

Damn. I really like Adam Sessler. Here’s hoping he gets something cool going that I can go follow. Until then, let’s imagine what a Sessler only show COULD be like -
