If there is two journalists in the gaming industry I’ve ever had more respect for than any other out there the names are Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb who were the hosts of G4TV’s most renowned video game show called “X-Play”. It’s where Adam and Morgan became some of the most listened to and watched journalists in the industry, a place where they gave insight to upcoming games, but also feedback regarding what they believe the games would be like, and honestly? They were right quite a bit. For the first time since G4TV was retired back in 2012 to become Esquire, Adam Sessler will be reuniting for the first time in several years to co-host the live shows prior to and following the Bethesda E3 2015 Showcase. Starting at 6:45pm PDT on June 14th, fans can tune in to watching these two amazing hosts as they go live at the backstage of the Dolby Theatre, while giving fans exclusive interviews from behind-the-scenes. Where can you watch these two though? If you aren’t there watching them live, you can head over to Bethesda’s Twitch and YouTube channels and tune in to see what’s going down live. They will also be discussing their thoughts, insights, and even discussing topics regarding some of Bethesda’s most renowned Developers in interviews.
Not familiar with Adam Sessler? Last year I was lucky to have the fortunate chance to meet this astonishing man who has become one of the best-known personalities in video gaming, but also for his exciting approach to reporting on games, but also his unique talents as a producer, editor-in-chief, but also well spoken personality within the gaming industry. During his time at G5tv, a long 15 years co-hosting X-Play, Adam stayed with the project from its inception to its untimely end. There he acted as G4’s editor-in-chief for video game content and continued on his career as Revision3 Games’ editor-in-chief, but also their producer.
“I am thrilled to be reunited with Morgan Webb again and coming together for Bethesda’s first-ever E3 Showcase makes it that much better,” said Sessler. “Over the years the talent and games from Bethesda’s studios have always been a point of admiration, and my excitement couldn’t be more palpable. Seriously, my scalp is tingling.”
For those unfamiliar with Morgan Webb co-hosted G4’s show X-Play with Adam. She was also a host for G4 Underground and even penned the Tips From the Gaming Goddess column for FHM Magazine. Which brings her voice as a unique place in the industry and makes her one of the most unique personalities in the gaming industry.
“I’m looking forward to that moment when Adam and I get to sit down with Bethesda’s developers right after the show wraps,” said Webb. “We know we’re going to see some big reveals at the Showcase, and we will be there to make sure the fans get all the information they’re craving. We’d love the fans to get involved in the conference via Twitter and Twitch, so we can take their questions straight to the people behind the games they love.”
Fans can join the conversation on Bethesda Softworks’ Twitter (@Bethblog) and in the Twitch chat stream during the Showcase by using the official Bethesda E3 hashtag: #BE3. Adam and Morgan will ask viewer questions to developers live during the post-show, with cool prize giveaways for anyone whose tweet is called out.
The pre and post-Showcase can be watched live on Twitch.TV/Bethesda and YouTube.com/BethesdaSoftworks.
