Sorry for the delay! On May 31st, 2009, B(O_o) squared off against Jumperer in the finals of the tournament. They produced some amazing games, and it was our intention to make third person VODs with commentary of each of the games in the finals. Unfortunately we ran into some coordination issues, and the project got pushed back multiple times. It turns out that this may have been a blessing in disguise, as we since came up with a way to record videos with a higher viewing area than the standard 640x480 view that StarCraft supplies. To the best of my knowledge, these are the first audio commentaries done in a higher resolution than the default, so these videos are history in the making in more way than one. Even if you aren't particularly interested in the commentary, the videos are still worth seeing due to the amazing recording job (and the fact that they are such great games).
The recording was done by Shaldengeki, who did a phenomenal job. He also was responsible for all the encoding, and managed to convert each game to a format acceptable for youtube with minimal loss in quality. This is quite a feat considering the raw footage of each game was on the order of 4 gigabytes a piece!
Audio commentary was done by Shox, Sonic, Grass, and myself. Shox did the lead in for each game with the rest of us throwing in our insights as we saw fit. Hopefully we said a few things that are worth hearing. :)
Unfortunately, there was a problem with the encoding of game 2, and we still haven't managed to salvage it. We may redo the entire video at a later date. But for now, here's the other 3 games. Each is divided into multiple parts. There's no need to click the HD link in YT as the links below will enable it by default.
Enjoy, and I hope to hear what everyone thinks!

i watched like 3 minutes of the 1st part of the final game and i would prefer more stuff to be clicked on(probe health, what building is building, etc) or was that not possible due to the resolution thing? i saw the APM count though so maybe you were still able to use chaos launcher or something?
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
