A week in links (Weekend tournament edition)

I wanted to write a long lengthy blog post on tournament directing and the pitfalls associated with it, but rather I'll just save that for after the weekend when I'm done helping out with our weekend tournament here.  The last time we held one, I was in charge for both games.  It wasn't too terribly difficult, but this time around I'll be running four tournaments. 

Needless to say, I won't be entering nany tournaments unfortunately.  Typically it's not a good idea to enter when you're the one helping out with brackets and what not — the inevitable lull will appear.

At any rate, enjoy this week's link roundup!  Last week there was a huge surge of people browsing over the weekend (possibly due to Evo 2009),  Is this my chance to shine!?  (no way lol)

Play Street Fighter IV Online but don't like the outfits?  Give this wiki a while — tons of unbelievably awesome outfits mods…and some that are a bit NSFW!

Funny link from Japan Probe showing Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint being interviewed by a Japanese fan!

K-ON! Extra Episode Green-Lit for 7th BD/DVD Volume – Anime News Network
