Just thought people would find this interesting, as Adam Sessler is a cool dude. Patrick is on here at the top of the video to chat about the story and Microsoft's crazy u-turn on DRM today.

The video continues like other "Address the Sess" videos where he takes community members on and chats with them about it.

I had no clue Scoops broke the scoop on the XBox 180 before I saw this video, but what a great finishing move before he exits the ring for Chicago!

Love that Patrick gets the deserved credit for breaking the story, and a chance to explain and give his 2 cents right up front. Way to go Scoooops!!!

What a great way to end Patrick's run for GB in San Fran before he officially moves back to Chicago by breaking this story.

I barely started watching it. I love Sess Money. :D

#7 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5429 posts) -

All right! I'll have to watch this later.

Watching this now. One hour long? Oof.

Edit: Just finished. Overall it was a pretty fair video. I didn't really understand the guy that came on trying to call foul for the family sharing plan going away with the DRM. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Also, can I just say that Sessler just has one of those laughs? The laugh that can make you start laughing even when you don't know why.

Scoops and Sessler together again, makes me miss Feedback on G4 when it was good.

I love me some Sessler. I've got a ton of respect for that dude. Can't wait to watch this.

Yeah, what the hell? That's totally him isn't it?

god i love it when the sess and kleptok get together. pour one out for the glory days of feedback, yall.

ps- credit where credit's due...this (at least) the 2nd MAJOR story @patrickklepek has broken in his young career- keep up the good work guy!

Why is the intern there? He's got real handsome.

Former Intern Nick's working for Rev3 these days as one of their video guys. I think Tall Ben might be there too; either that or he retired young from all the crazy money you earn from being super tall on Tumblr.

But yeah, it's because Patrick broke the story that the site went down for a spell. Was hearing reports that the traffic was around three times greater than the busiest heights of E3 last week because every outlet was linking to it.

@bonorbitz: Yeah, Patrick broke it alongside, I think it was whathifi.com?

But you can check out how it was for him to break such a big story at the top of the GB reactions video; http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/giant-bomb-reax-xbox-one-drm-revised/2300-7621/

whathifi technically (well nothing technical about it) broke it first. Patrick tweeted a link to their xbox one story a few hours after the story had broke and gave them props. Still, fantastic reporting on Patrick's part.

But anyways time for me to watch this video.

#18 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2506 posts) -

@jiggajoe14: Yup - independently reported by both them and Mr. Klepek, and they broke it first.

On the other hand, most sites linked to Klepek's story as he has a track record in the gaming press. Either way, today's be a crazy day.

@babylonian He works at Revision 3 as an Audience Development Coordinator, whatever the fuck that means. :P

@hamst3r: He coordinates the development of audiences, DUH.

The whole Vince Zampella and Jason West getting fired from Infinity Ward thing. Good old G4 days and the Feedback podcast with Sessler, Patrick and Abbie Heppe, which now works for Zampella on Titanfall. Weird, right?

Wasn't the whole Infinity Ward fiasco news that he broke what got him this job in the first place? And to leave this job with another big story? Talk about coming full circle!

To be fair, he's still staying at Giant Bomb, and he is arguably planning on being even more of the "news guy" now that he'll be in Chicago.

But yeah, it is an interesting turn of events. I'm really happy for Scoops.
