he looks a little "toasty" in my opinion...

A lot of people were saying that he was straight up on coke.

#54 Posted by isomeri (1289 posts) -

He looks like he's pretty sick and probably tired as fuck. I can't imagine what it must be like trying to cover something like E3 if you'r health is not 100%.

#55 Edited by Cretaceous_Bob (513 posts) -

A lot of swaying in his chair for being tired with a sore throat. I can't speak definitively, but I know at least that when I am super tired I tend to move far less than normal, not more.

If he was sick or drunk or medicated that would explain it.

#56 Posted by Nals (78 posts) -

Guys hotel room was apparently a mess, he got sick during E3, his vocal cords started to go, and massive sleep deprivation.

Even with all that, he put out about as much content as the GB guys did alone.

Yeah, it's not hard to see why at the end of E3 Sessmoney looks like he's about to die. He probably was.

He could have a sore throat from all the interviewing that he's done. I'm mainly judging by the sound of his voice as that's the one thing that sticks out.

That's cold medicine.

Wow that's pretty unprofessional. If I showed up to work like that I'd probably get shit-canned.

You'd get fired for doing interviews all day, aka your job, and coming away from it with a sore throat?

He was complaining about his throat on twitter

Yes because that's clearly what all it is

#62 Posted by RE_Player1 (7560 posts) -

Thought people were exaggerating before I watched it... dude is straight up fucked up in that clip.

It's what happens when you're doing all of the interviewing along with producing more than 80 videos in 4 days.

#64 Edited by TheHT (11362 posts) -

It seemed like it was just him sitting there talking to people all day for four days straight and barely got any rest in between.

#65 Posted by TwoLines (2812 posts) -

@bonorbitz: Yeah, after seeing this it's obvious he was really exhausted. Man, props to the Sessmeister.

#66 Posted by jkz (4031 posts) -

No. Tired and his vocal chords fucked? Yes. Not drunk or any such in the slightly. To be fair, sleep deprivation is some weird shit

#67 Edited by SSully (4199 posts) -

Go check out his twitter feed during E3. His wife manned it for him for most of it, but when he was checking in he sounded like he had a busy ass schedule. On the last day his voice was strung out and he was seeking advice from people on what works best. I don't think he was drunk, he was just tired.

That man needs sleep.

#69 Edited by Aaron_G (1615 posts) -

He looks smashed, but it's probably working long hours, no sleep, terrible food, I also recall him on Twitter saying his hotel sucked and he had like no hot water.

that alone with sleep deprivation will fuck your shit up real good.

Look at those twats he works with, I would be drunk to if I was him.

yeah.

it sounds like he's having trouble forming certain sounds, like his lips and mouth are numb. Who knows it could just be exhaustion. I hope he's drunk though. E3 sounds like a hell hole.

#72 Edited by Sticky_Pennies (2019 posts) -

That sounds like exhaustion and a seriously bad sore throat, right there.

#73 Posted by johnbakosh (115 posts) -

Hmph. Some of you would be better off keeping quiet than flapping your gums on matters you don't know anything about.

#74 Edited by wjb (1665 posts) -

I think this is the first time when a member here posted a thread and I went from "You're probably over-reacting" before I clicked on the video to "Nope, totally right."

Poor Adam.

#75 Posted by Blackout62 (1346 posts) -

It's definitely a thing. He was like that in all the interviews that day. Maybe it was the daring pastel blazer.

#76 Posted by OneKillWonder_ (1755 posts) -

Whatever his issue is in that video, it's undeniably funny to watch.

#77 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

When I was travelling two years ago, I can remember laying in the atrium at the train station in Madrid, having not slept in 36 hours, and I was doing videos, talking to myself to pass the time because I couldn't sleep. I sounded much like this.

#78 Edited by kkotd (305 posts) -

Well, he finally lays the rumors to rest about half-way into this video

#79 Posted by Jeffsekai (7034 posts) -

What the hell

#80 Edited by JasonR86 (9714 posts) -

He doesn't sound drunk. He isn't acting drunk. He sounds and is acting fucking exhausted.

Saw that earlier and it was fantastic. He's so optimistic at the beginning! And then the 0:29 thing happens.

#82 Posted by Rabbykayn (225 posts) -

I talk on air for a living 5 days a week for extended periods of time. There is no way three days of hosting did that to his voice. It's either lack of sleep, medication, drugs or booze. He seems like a professional so I lean towards sleep and medication.

#83 Posted by flippyandnod (390 posts) -

He's repeating syllables and inserting spurious ones. That and the slurring and it's pretty obvious to me it isn't just a strained voice. It's probably not sleep depravation either.

But whatever, maybe the is drunk or high, perhaps even inadvertently. It's maybe a bit embarrassing, but whatever.

#84 Posted by bunnymud (717 posts) -

That is a VERY drunk man. Maybe some pills thrown in the mix as well.

#85 Posted by dreamtheateropeth (22 posts) -

He did 40 interviews in 3 days. Of course did his voice went to shit.

How much money do these people make? Just interviewing video game people/discussing their opinions of video games and putting their videos on youtube for 30-40k views a pop?

I know of a Harvard graduate who never bothered getting a job in his field after graduation, and instead makes money by playing Call of Duty and uploading videos to You Tube. He actually has referred to degree as a back up plan.

It's WAY harder to get noticed these days, but for the people who have been doing it for a long time, some of them do quite well for themselves.

That makes Rev3Games look bad. They have other employees, they should've saved the big interviews/videos for him and had someone else take the smaller stuff. At least when all these video game critics cry and moan about E3 he's clearly putting in the work... I love the GB guys, but I don't see why they're so tried and exhausted. They mainly just put up game trailers, did a handful of interviews, then chilled with some of their gaming friends and recorded it as podcasts. That's obviously work, but critics should stop talking about how much work E3 is unless they're putting in THIS amount of crazy effort.

#89 Posted by Soviet666 (291 posts) -

Makes it better IMO :D.

#90 Posted by Sanious (793 posts) -

I would say he was drunk if this wasn't days into E3. I would also say that he was drunk if I had an actual evidence or some sort of basis to prove that he was drinking or doing drugs. I don't watch him but from the things I am seeing/reading he did A LOT of shit over the period of time, so I am going to assume that any of the free time he had would have been devoted to sleep rather then drinking or drugs.

#91 Posted by Nubikal (107 posts) -

He addresses it a bit during this video. 4:20 - 5:05

#93 Posted by animathias (1186 posts) -

I've watched quite a few of his videos over the event, and there's still many more that I haven't touched, so the dude and his team cranked out an insane amount of content in just a few days. The man's getting older, he was probably booked to the eyeballs in appointments, and his main job on the show floor was to talk to people about their games over the roar of the show itself. Not to mention he was in a convention hall with thousands of other people, so he likely caught a bug.

So he was extremely busy, working his voice to the limit, maybe a little sick, and then there's also any of the after-work parties and such that he might of attended. To me, it sounds like an exhausting week, and my voice wouldn't fair any better. Also, if at the end of it I were working like that on less sleep than normal, I'd be a bit loopy too.

Give the man a break, all signs point to him working his behind off for days straight to produce some awesome content.

Sess probably makes a good deal, he was on tv for over 10 years. Probably a few 100k i'd guess.

I think that's an overestimate.

#96 Posted by ZeroRegistry (89 posts) -

It's really weird that people seem to want to perpetuate the opinion that this man was either drunk, high, or some combination of both. Sess is an old dude, and considering the amount of content he generated, separate of the stuff Max and Tara put out, it's understandable that he's a little loopy at the end of it all.

#97 Edited by ShaggE (6472 posts) -

I have nothing to say about his sleep deprivation, just wanted to say that Bald Sessler still throws me for a loop to this day. When I think "Adam Sessler", I think "Late 90s hair".

Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

You probably host in a quiet environment. Sessler has stated that the area he was in was loud, so loud he had to constantly raise his voice to talk to his guests. It didn't come through the video though as they toned it out.

I'm also sure that with enough training of your vocals you can talk for a long time. He didn't have that advantage. He was basically going from not talking a whole lot to having to talk loudly for 10-12 hours a day for four straight days. This is the point of the 'descent into madness' video. It was a slow progression that, by the end of it, when factoring in likely sleep deprivation, we have what we seen.

He wasn't drunk or high. I love all the internet doctors out there coming out of the woodwork to apply to immediate diagnosis while having absolutely no understanding of the environment he was in or the effects of days long sleep deprivation.

#100 Posted by wafflez (528 posts) -

nah, dudes had a few rough days and is probably high on cough medicine.
