{Update}*TGS* Aftermath-MGO World Tournament 2008

[Authors Note: Sorry for some odd spacing in some areas, but BBCode sux and doesn't
complete the URL tag when posted over multiple lines. Seriously, Hamza, or whoever would
do something about that, please do something about that. I think I was able to compensate
well enough in the vid list though.]

Saturday I posted some weak coverage(warning, tourney spoilers) of
the MGO tournament. I said if I found more videos I would post them here. Well, the host
of JJBBLive.com has finally uploaded his stream as youtube videos. The stream was split
into seven minute videos(considering its 125 mins total...) making the total amount of
videos 20. In the efforts of saving space, I'm just posting links and not embedding all the
videos. I'll put the links in blocks centered around the event they're most related to.
Considering the event went down at the Tokyo Game Show, all the commentary is in
Japanese without subtitles or translation(though English speaking contestants still speak
English). And so...

The MGO website also updated their tournaments page with a list of the
winners and
participants. So, was
this exciting, or are you disappointed that North America didn't
place first in either competition?

In other related news, it was revealed that the MEME expansion pack will be released in
November of this year. There is not a specific date though.
