adam-sesslerYes, the picture is creepy but that’s not the point!

The point is that Adam Sessler, everyone’s loveable, huggable, friendly neighbourhood Sess, has just got a promotion!

Yes, a week where he controversialy announced Fable II as X-Play’s GOTY and after being called out by presenter of Attack of the Show, Kevin Perreria, Sessler has been announced as G4′s Editor in Chief or to give him his full title, Editor-in-Chief of Games Content.

He will still front X-Play with Morgan Webb and will still do his own Sessler’s Sopabox but now, Sessler will have a little less time to play Fable II.

The press release is after the jump.
