We are excited to reveal that for the first time since their legendary run on G4 TV’s X-Play, Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb will reunite to co-host the live shows prior to and following the Bethesda E3 2015 Showcase. On June 14TH at 6:45pm PDT, watch as Adam and Morgan host these shows backstage at the Dolby Theatre, giving viewers an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience that will be broadcasted on Bethesda’s Twitch and YouTube.

During the post-show Adam and Morgan will share their unique insights and talk to some of Bethesda’s most renowned developers for exclusive interviews.

One of the best-known personalities in video gaming, Adam Sessler was the co-host of X-Play for nearly 15 years from its inception in 1998 until 2012. He is the former producer and editor-in-chief of Revision3 Games and was also editor-in-chief of G4’s game content.

“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.”

Morgan Webb co-hosted X-Play on the G4 television network with Sessler for a decade. She also hosted G4 Underground and penned FHM Magazine’s Tips From the Gaming Goddess column.

“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

DOOM Retro Tease

That didn’t take long. Yesterday @DOOM tweeted the idea of doing a throwback video spoofing DOOM’s teaser video. Hours later (and perhaps by pure coincidence), YouTuber UberOfFP put together this sweet little package using DOOM II.

Pretty spot on. To see the new DOOM that id Software’s working on now, don’t miss our E3 Showcase — June 14th at 7pm PT on Twitch.TV/Bethesda and

Around the Web – Swede Interview Edition

What’s new on the web? Plenty!

With Wolfenstein out for more than a month now, Giant Bomb’s Patrick Klepek caught up with MachineGames’ creative director, Jens Matthies, for a must-read interview. Topics covered include: what it takes to make a Wolfenstein game, spoilers [alert!] about the ending, and what’s on the horizon for MachineGames.

Here’s an excerpt…

Giant Bomb: So you actually liked the idea of trying to resolve the potential contradictions in the story you wanted to tell with the legacy of the storytelling in Wolfenstein?

Jens Matthies: Yeah, of course. We want this to be part of a greater saga. That said, of course, this game stands completely on its own. It’s not a requirement that you play anything of the previous games. You can be completely new to Wolfenstein and have a complete experience. But we also want to build upon things that have been established on their own.

Who else is putting their post-mortem wrap on Wolfenstein? The Escapist. One of the site’s feature writers, Shamus Young, shares his surprise in how great the game ended up being — drawing comparisons to Valve’s Half-Life 2. Read Shamus’ article here.

Going from what’s already out to what’s coming later this year, we move to The Evil Within. And with The Evil Within at E3, you also get plenty of face time with Shini Mikami. Read a pair of interviews with him at both Metro UK and Telegraph.

Previewed in a dark room, we had to be careful not to make players scream at the top of their lungs as we strolled by. Below are some E3 highlights…

Official Xbox Magazine – “… it could be the modern Resident Evil that fans like me have been waiting for.”

Platform Nation – “Bewildered by the blank wall, I turn around and the hall goes all hazy, riddled with static, and then the doctor and patient disappear after the kid gives some sort of creepy psycho premonition speech. The hallway ends at a door that wasn’t there before, and the other side appears to go on interminably. It’s disconcerting to say the least.”

USA Today — Watch a new video preview with Pete Hines.

Closing out our wrap up, read impressed impressions from folks that tried BattleCry Studios’ self-titled debut. Among recent previews, USA Today ranked the game as one of their Top 10 game of the show. Previews below…

Quest Gaming Network – “Fast and fluid, pretty yet gritty; BattleCry Studios seem to know what their doing, which is no surprise with vets from all around the industry in their ranks.”

Tom’s Hardware – “BATTLECRY in its present state was a blast. A number of us played as the Cossacks while another set played as the Royal Marines. Because there is no gunpowder in this alternate timeline, players must rely on melee and basic ranged weapons such as swords, bows, energy-powered blades and more. That made the gameplay feel a bit more personal and frantic.”

USA Today – “It’s a fascinating approach for an online multiplayer game, which anyone with a headset and public chat settings enabled will tell you is sometimes a hostile experience.”

E3 2014 – Photos from the Show

E3 week is always a bit crazy, but we still manage to have a blast while showing off our newest games. There’s plenty of highlights: from a BATTLECRY showdown featuring our friends from Respawn Entertainment, candid interview shots, and seeing folks playing the game in mood-setting darkness.
