The majority of game videos on the internet are utter crap. Know why? Because they were recorded at a preview press event with some wuss of a journalist on the controller. Like me. Listen, just because we're the people you want writing and talking about videogames doesn't mean we're the ones you want signing up for a professional multiplayer tournament. Our online combat skills are usually average at best.
So when I attended the Halo: Reach review event in San Francisco last week, I decided to record footage – and audio commentary – from someone who truly knows what he's doing. In this case? Brian Jarrard, community director at Bungie. By the time you buy Halo: Reach on September 14, he'll have already been playing it for months, possibly years. This is a man whose multiplayer skills you want to watch, and study, very closely.
