Letter From The Editor: Sess's First Show, X-Play 1000, and Mass Effect 2


Posted January 15, 2010 - By Adam Sessler

Working with everyone on X-Play’s 1000th episode is turning into an interesting affair. I have relived some very wonderful moments from the show, scratched my head trying to recall what we could have been thinking when we did things…and then there was yesterday.

A guy on the show asks me, “Adam, you said that your first episode of GameSpot TV aired on July 4th, 1998, right?” 


“We found it”


Of course I had to watch it. John Romero is in the show, there’s a review for Unreal (the first one), and it was hosted by this young-looking man, with hope-filled eyes and one remarkable head of blond hair, all full of volume and heft, covering his head.

So, make sure to tune in on February 1st. Hopefully you won’t cry like I did.

Speaking of things from bygone times that date ourselves, we’re celebrating the 5th anniversary of Resident Evil 4, the game that revolutionized the franchise and stands out as one of the greatest achievements of the last generation. We’ll have a retrospective on the site. With an eye towards things a little more new, Tuesday, January 19th is our 1/2 hour special on Mass Effect 2 -- it's one helluva sequel, and you can find additional interviews on the website the same day. That will be in addition to our Dark Void review which, for anyone who loved Crimson Skies, is a game we’ve had our eye on for some time.

Alright, off to play Mass Effect 2 for our review on the 26th.  Maybe someone’s vision of the future can erase all these images of the past from my mind.
