X-play's Adam Sessler talks to Ripten.com about his thoughts on Killzone 2 Fanboys, Fable 2 and how you could be part of the Cult of Exceptionalism.
I wonder how long it'll be before the fanboys show up here, too. The words "Killzone 2" are in the article, after all.
I'm guessing if it hits the front page, they won't be far behind.
Fanboys of all creeds and colours will enjoy this interview.
Damn, Sessler is a real funny guy, and yeh I agree with him on most of the points that he made.
...isn't this video post directed to the Killzone 2 Fanboys? So wouldn't that be a good thing. For some reason, your comment makes YOU come across like a fanboy.
::Looks at the picture:: He's a pedo! There i said it.
Cookigaki was starting to think Ripten died and then they score interview with Sessler? Cookigaki is confused.
Cookie we love you.
Ripten is dead to me. Some one post the interview, I'm not going to their site!
What did Ripten do to you? Where they mean to you in school?
great find,but wow i forgot about ripten.
Wow, there's a new story on killzone 2 fanboys every day. Why?
Theres is nothing else for 360 fanboys to talk about, certainly not 360 games anyway.
Sessler is right. I find it hilarious that someone give KZ2 a 5/5 and fanboys still find something to complain about. They could give the game a 10 out of 5 and sony fanboys will still call them bias.
They weren't complaining about the score, they were complaining about the cheap shots on the PS3 that were completely irrelevant and contradicted even Xplay's previous reviews on PS3 games. Xplay always acts as if every good ps3 review they give is of the first and only ps3 game that's worth playing. THAT'S what people complained about, it had nothing to do with the score. Far too often the people complaining about fanboys, ARE the fanboys. You can't throw around that word to excuse everything you do, it only works on fanboys.
People like you are so ignorant. Who cares if they game is exclusive or not. I would rather play a game that is multi-platform and FUN rather then an exclusive. Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't a MULTI-PLATFORM game win games of the year? Also, wasn't Call of Duty 4 one of the best multiplayer games this gen? Xbox has Gears as an exclusive, which is great, but that doesn't matter. With RE 5, Operation Flashpoint 2, and CoD4MW2 coming out this year, Most 360 owners, along with PS3 and PC owners should be more then satisfied. Stop trying to start console fights. You must be real insecure to bash another system.
if your going to just rant and call people moron and act like a total fanboy yourself while calling others names I suggest you go and do it in the open zone. For your info they are complaining about score, they are complaining about the backhanded slap to the ps3 that seems to accompany a lot of reviews lately!
Cry me a river. What are you talking about? KZ2 has a 9.3 metacritic score. How is that a slap? My comment was posted directly from the video, it was MY input on HIS interview. I thought it was funny how people will still complain even though it was scored a perfect 5/5. How is that being a fanboy? I think the PS3 is great and KZ2 will be great. See that fanboys? I think they ARE GREAT. I am commenting soley on that specific segment and nothing else. I don't care about morgans comment, i care about sesslers interview, which is the point of this article.
Giving a 5/5 was not an option for them, they have to try and keep some integrity. Yeah lets pretend that Morgan's jokes were funny, nah, lets take them for what they were, their typical 360 ftw BS. Everyone just jump on the K2 train, speak positively or negatively, you will get your hits. The game has shook the gaming world and its funny when those in denial try to say otherwise. If the game is mediocre, why talk about it, why keep giving opinions and keep discussing the reactions to it. Why call people morons in response to their comments?

http://g4tv.com/attackofthe... Jeff watch this video you dont have to watch it all but if you watch around the end Kevin P say to Adam "So you hate Sony" and with a very long pause Adam says "I....I...love everyone". He could have just said No I don't hate Sony or something in the lines of all company's have there pros and cons.
He was being sarcastic, they were making fun of the whole "microsoft pays off xplay" as soon as he appeared for the segment. Do you even know what sarcasm is? If not, google it!
I didn't have a problem with Xplays review of K2, and I don't think many others will argue over a 5 out 5 score. The problem with the review came from the opening remarks by Morgan Webb, comments about the "long drought of games may finally be over", "PS3 owners finally having something to play?" And then the reference to "PS3 owners finally being able to get off the drugs!" Xplay really showed us who the fanboys are in this matter, and Adams video tirade that didn't address their own comments speak volumes in terms of fanboy attitude. Complete fail on their part in my view, but then again I stopped watching Xplay years ago so whatever...
Morgan Webb is a dumb b1tch and Adam Sessler is a coked up emo cry baby, like they didnt have their little jabs in there on purpose. They are such little weasels. Thank god that joke of a show is cut back. Right like they didnt incite the riots on their boards to not only fuel a little ratings spike, but to also fuel topics for more shows, such as their follow up response on AOTS and X-play and the little queers soapbox rants. But hey who can blame them for riding Sony's coat tails when their opinions and views are only destroying their channel.
are you for real? because your rants remind me of a schizophrenic homeless guy that hangs out in front of my local Starbucks. get a grip on reality. get a job. maybe a girlfriend. and realize that the PS3 is in third place for a reason. it's games and online service just aren't as good as the 360. if things change then I will buy a PS3 but as it stands I'd probably only buy one if they were $150-200. Hype up KZ2 all you want but it still looks lame to me. I'd rather play COD4 for now and wait for Modern Warfare 2. Plus the 360 already has Left 4 Dead, Halo 3, and Gear 1 & 2 which are all better than KZ2. Honestly, the only games I want on the PS3 is MGS4 and Heavy Rain if it ever comes out. If they hadn't messed up Socom then I may have wanted that, too. Infamous has potential but we'll have to wait and see.
pumpkinpumker did i mention K2? didnt think so. get a job, not the waiting because of price, so maybe you need to get a better job, and your rant about 360 being better, please GET A LIFE, defending G4 and its pathetic cast, no really GET A LIFE. CoD, L4D, and queers, and, lmao halo, go ahead and keep "gaming" there sport have fun, keep that 360 iced down, stroke that $120 hdd and make sure your batteries are fresh in that controller. Renew your live sub. pay your internet bill, and MS and ask why your discs has those circles gouged into them. Scream back and forth with the children your playing against and use that lag to improve those stats, once have fun. The sad thing is you wont be getting a medal for MS's sales so rah rah go team, GET A LIFE. The race isnt over, your not in the race, and MS doesnt even have legs in 09, rah rah go team, GET A LIFE.
The reason why Playstation fans where upset had nothing to do with killzone2. morgan webbs first words where good news sony fanboys. like if you like KZ2 you must be a fanboy. then she said that you finally have somthing to spend your money on. she pretty much just took a crap on games like Metal Gear,Resistance1,2, lbp,ratchet and clank and all the other great games that came out on the ps3 before Killzone2.
Keyword: Great Games With the exception of MGS4(amazing), those games you listed were "just" great. The problem with Sony fanboys, is that they hype exclusive games so much that they act as if no game will ever match it. I've heard the 360 was done and peaked about a million times, yet it's still going strong. Sony fanboys are still c0cky from last gen, and they carried it over this gen. Why do you think Xbox fans and the media made fun of the PS3? Because it sucked? NO! Because it was supposed to be the machine that ended all machines. Didn't happen. You know what? This time they have competition, real competition. That competition just so happens to be in front of Sony. Yes Halo and Gears are hyped but honestly, who doesn't know about Halo? It's a popular franchise, of course it's going to be hyped. But what did we see before KZ2 was released? A bunch of Sony fanboys declaring it the Halo killer. Who accidently hyped Halo there? Morgan Webb's comment was fine in my opinion because of the way Sony fanboys act. If you would sit down, look at this website and the amount of fanboys hyping Sony exclusives, maybe you'll be able to see. Until then, continue to wear those shades, because obviously something has made you blind.
its the review. let's just bury the hatchet huh sessler? I think we ragged on that ugly man biotch Morgan Webb for what she said. its the opening statement that got thier site flamed. its a high point of hits with fans saying WTF was that? Since then, the hits freefalled. G4 has been chopped. Sessler is the editor in chief now but he's not safe at all. ps3 fans dont fck around. Keep it real. Who needs anti-depressants now?
the reason why the "KZ2 fanboys" were "crying" is because of the stupid comment morgan made at the beginning of the review.
so sick of sony fanboys crying. so what if their favorite console is in 3rd place and no one wants to buy it. enjoy your games and shut up.
Kudos to Sessler calling out both sides. Awesome video lol. EDIT: Finished reading the review, interesting read. I like Sessler.
thats just what I have said since that show. no one cared about the 5/5 it was just the cheap shots that morgan webb kept on taking. I dont recall her calling 360 gamers MS fanboys.
Great interview and i completely agree with the "Cult of Exceptionalism" thing going on now a days not just in video games but in all forms of media and everyday life it seems.
who watches g4 anymore anyway? why would you pay extra for the most retarded channel? xplay thinks they can bring more viewers with contraversy. sorry to say its not working, LOL. If you are watching or even concerned with xplay or g4 that's makes you a idiot in the highest order. its litterally a channel for baby retards.
Man i dont know why anybody would disagree with you, your dead on target. couldnt have said it better myself.
Fanboys or not, we give these stupid ass sites and show a reason to exist. If they are going to keep acting like fanboys themselves while bashing ps3 during a review then F*%k them they won't get my hits! Guess what happens when they lose hits, especially in a f*&ked up economy, yeah biatches, monster.com!
You're a total hyprocrite. Telling me to go to the open zone and comment and look at you. You're a fanboy. Calling other people a fanboy doesn't diminish your fanboy-esk-ness. Tool.
I don't ever recall in any of my comments denying being a fanboy. all i said was you shouldn't call people names in the gamerzone as usually gets you banned to the open zone. I am a fanboy, and as my comment states we are the ones who give these sites and shows a reason to be and them bashing a console for not having games when clearly currently it has more than the others is wrong and fanboyish. So maybe you should try to understand my comments instead of just getting all defensive and acting like a little kid, unless you are a little kid, in which case I would tell you to grow up.
humm...Adam Sessler, who is this guy? He must be a VERY important guy like many others....uaheuaheuae just another a**hole!
That is so so true, and I went through the Nintendo/Genesis Wars....it has never been like this. Gamers bought consoles because of Exclusives but didn't need to justify every Exclusive, every time, from the reviews/graphics/console hardware/sales/pre-orders...an d you can continue.. Everything now is MAGNIFIED, yes even 1 or 2 pixels I remember seeing one day with GTA4 comparisons. This is what happens when one competitor dominates 2 gens of console ownershhip. Everything else becomes a threat...sadly, it's not about the games anymore. Since no game is better, then the game that is on your console of choice, these days. While back in the days, games were enjoys on whichever console. It used to be, I this game on a competitors console because it was different and my console doesn't have it, but now some only play games that score 90+, games that sell the most, and games they think is superior looking..who cares about the gameplay...right? Well a game might have superior gameplay/replay value/fun factor but the graphics are not up to par, so who cares about gameplay...
how did you get marked down, everything you said was f-ing honest truth, not even insulting to the fanboys, except that they want you to say theres is the best console, these boards are going to hell
Say what you will about Sessler, but I like him. He's a gaming geek first and foremost and doesn't really care what you think of him. On the flip side of their argument about Sony fanboys and their sometime irrational defense of KZ2. I recall G4 took up the mantle of Too Human last year. They had this week long games of summer segment and every day of that week Denis Dyack was on the air talking up Too Human. When it finally came out they gave it a "strong 4" which means they wanted to give it a 5 but held back for whatever reason. Then Kevin Pereira had that famous video rant about why the media was too unfair to the game and had really underscored it.

waiting for PP, the way you love it
I think the comment Morgan made about Sony fanboys and anti-depressants is what annoyed people. I'm sure it was a joke but after all the negativity surrounding sony and the fanbase, many didn't take it as such. Adam has mostly been fair in his reviews towards Sony games imo, but xplay as a whole has made a habit of dissing the ps3. I think people are just fed up with it all.
I think it's great that people in here are commenting just like every other message board goes when talking about Sessler's Soapbox on Killzone 2. I'll use big letters for those who didn't get it: HE WAS MAKING FUN OF ALL FANBOYS. NOT CONSOLE SPECIFIC ONES. HE THINKS EVERYONE WHO IS AN IDIOT TO THINK HE AND XPLAY ARE BRIBED ON THEIR REVIEWS NEED TO DIE IN A DITCH. No one won jack squat from his Soapbox or make Sessler out to be on a side of some sort. If there was a side he proved he's on, it's the, "I like good videogames," side. The same side I've been on since I started gaming at 5 years old. No one should care what console a game goes to. If you really want to play it, buy the system. Give support to the companies giving you great entertainment so they can keep delivering it to us in the future. Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo DO NOT CARE about you lol. They give a F less if you are LOYAL to their product. The people you should be loyal to are the game developers who slave away to bring you these games.Some talk to their fans and use their incite to bring you what you want into the game. These people are here to help you, and don't care if they have to deliver it on videogame system shaped like a piece of dung as long as it runs their vision. :)
did you know that mitsu is very low tier.
he is a weird little man.
Never heard of Sessler until about a couple of weeks ago. So I flipped through some of his Soapbox clips and found him very entertaining. Yeah sure he's a little flimsy but he does bring up some good points in several of his episodes. Granted he don't always make an effort to come up with a solution but he can actually make an argument that, at least made me, reflect on somethings that no one ever bothers to talk about. BTW he can't be a pedophile. He's not wearing the beard: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
its sad that gamers get caught up with this nonsense. at the end we are the one's spending the money so who cares if the game gets a 5/5 or a 2/5, i like it, i bought it, end of story.
wow u serious man i seriously cant stand xbox 360 fanboys bashing kz2 abd ps3 its ovious ps3 is selling more than twice as fast as 360 it has way better quiality exclusives everyone knows for a fact xbox 360 is dying. wanna know why. ask epic games lead designer cliff b he said they cant make anymoree games for 360. it needs more space and better specs for gears 3 but they could certainly do it on ps3 ok ps3 using half of wat its got while 360 is usin 85% kz2 will win game of the year 360 fANBOYS can play halo3 which is 20 years old and gears 2 while ill play god of war 3 and kz2 haha im happy im a sonny consumer
disagreed with my post about kewlkat's mitsu avatar. who ever did is a jerk off.
