Giantbombing has joined the game

I don't see it often but one has to assume with how much the Giantbombing account is used from quicklooks to reviews and just personally, sometimes other reviewers playing multiplayer games are going to come across it. Which is why I found it hilarious when watching through Gametrailers Tron Evolution: The game review and they showed a snippet of multiplayer (maybe about 30 seconds of footage) the last snippet of footage has Giantbombing has Joined the Game shown. 
 
Not really much else to say besides the fact that I found it highly entertaining, especially considering you don't usually see reviewers interacting with other reviewers in multiplayer. Especially when one is recording game play for review and to see it displayed gave me a little chuckle.  
 
That is all.

It's to be expected. Jeff knows plenty of people in the industry, so him joining the game of a fellow game journalist is no surprise.

@LiquidPrince: I recall him being apart of someone's squad in BFBC2. (not a stalker)

This, plus a lot of the time they are playing the game pre launch so the only other people the will run into are other reviewers.

As far as pre-release, most people playing a game are developers and people in the press.
