    According to a report by GameIndustry International (GI), the X-Play co-host, Adam Sessler, will be leaving G4 after a 14-year stint with the network. Though exact details have not been disclosed, Kotaku claims "Sessler is leaving due to a contractual dispute, and the departure was not on amicable terms."

    Sessler's attorney, James Molesky, told GI, "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."

    Sessler's last appearance on the network's popular X-Play series will air today.

    Singing at weddings and bar mitzvahs? After the last episode of X-Play that I bothered watching, I'd say he's moving up in the world.

    If he'd been a smarter man he would have jumped ship with Leo Laporte and the rest of the Tech TV crew when they got bought and gutted by G4. I will give this to the man, he had guts. He stood up to the network executives many times and more often than not made fun of the very network his show was on (see the many skits making fun of the ad floods that covered most of the screen).

    As the last man of principle on the network, he will be missed. That said he should have dropped out sooner... There were plenty of other more reputable jobs he could have gotten. Still, wish him the best.

    Now I don't feel nearly as enraged that DirecTV dropped G4. In fact, X-play was the reason I even watched G4 in the first place. No sess, no X-play. No X-play, no G4.

    G4? That channel still exists? As far as I'm concerned, it's a mere shadow of what it once was.

    I don't watch G4 that much anymore but I'm not afraid to say I loved Adam Sessler. 2002 is the first time I watched that man and damn he was awesome. Now that he's leaving maybe X-Play will go as well.

    G4 seems to have a lot of contractual disputes. Funny this happens at this time as this is the start of the month long no new episode drought thanks to E3. I've recorded every Gamespot TV - X-Play episode since I got the station, barring a few missed episodes due to unforeseen events beyond my control.

    Cops and Cheaters are all that is left.

    And Attack of the Show, which is the only show I watch on television, basically.

    It's hard to express how much I don't care.

    G4 was never worth it for their original shows and their personalities, well, lacked personalities. It was just either just Angry Middle Aged Gamer and Hot Chick Who Doesn't Know About Games.

    I personally hope the network dies. The only reason they stay afloat is because they monopolized E3 coverage. Well, that's probably not the only reason, I guess some retards enjoy watching Cops and Cheaters all day.

    ;_; I used to watch x-play after school everyday back when it was still tech tv, I thought it was amazing that a show that was about nothing but video games getting reviewed and skits
    ever got to mainstream television. I loved Adam sessler's sarcastic reviews on yu-gi-oh and the random junk that filled markets.
    Not that the x play of today is great, since G4 turned it into some kind of marketing platform, but it was the first time I had seen how big the gaming world was.
    I hope the best for him and perhaps if I one day marry a Jewish girl he could sing at my wedding.

    Well... I kinda figured this was coming when they stopped podcasting the Feedback episodes, as I felt that was the only outlet they had to actually discuss games and the industry as a whole.

    And, I don't think its too late to create another channel that is actually for that matter, as G4 will be put out of business for only having one videogame-based show, and one annual week for a conference.

    But now, if they do make another channel, it can touch on all of the industry and it within popular culture.

    G4 hasn't been good since 2004....Youtube has a far better selection of video game reviews and news.

    The day that G4 burns in flames for cannibalizing Tech TV, that's the day I will finally be happy.

    If Adam leaves G4 for another network, I guess they could do an episode of Cheaters on that. It would actually be relevant to the channel, for once.

    If you want to compare this to a relationship....

    G4 killed TechTV and wore it's skin for a while until it got stale and rotten, and ate the corpse. G4 was all "Adam, be with me or be with no one" and Adam was all "aw fuck, okay." Finally Adam got too old for the shit G4 was always pulling like trying to be like TechTV, but not really trying, and lying around in her underwear made of Cops and Cheaters, and she never wore her nice dresses she stole from G4 anymore like The Screensavers and Call for Help. So Adam was all "Fuck you bitch, I'm out"

    About the only thing on G4 worth watching is reruns of Quantum Leap.

    RIP Tech TV, still miss the Screen Savers, go to hell whoever decided to turn it into that Attack of the Show garbage.

    Attack of the Show always inspired a very ugly emotion in me--one that only Full House has been able to match.
