Pinoy2dfighters is having yet another big tournament, but this time their teaming up with the rest of the 2d fighting game community to bring you an even bigger event. If you have the urge to test your skills with the best the Philippines has to offer, this is the event for you. Labanparooza will have 4 games this year: Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition 2012, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, King of Fighters XIII, and Blazeblue: Continuum Shift: Extend. If interested, It's happening this weekend so you better read up on the details and start practicing those combos.
February 25 to 26 are the event dates. I've met the crew running Pinoy2dfighters.com and they are an awesome group of competitive gamers. Very laid back and cool people to hang out with, but a complete beast when you start playing them. I joined three of their events so far and not only was it a success, I can see the growth in the number of people attending. In cooperation with Team X-Over, Blazblue Philippines (BBPH), and A2G/Playmore, I have no doubt in my mind this will be their biggest, so you better not miss out.
Here's the full details of the two-day tournament:

Oh and they also have a trailer for the event. Not bad at all if you ask me.
