Battlekon 2011


It’s time for me to put aside my keyboard and forget all about programming for a while, cause this weekend the second edition of Battlekon, a Romanian arcade fighting game event, is being held.

Battlekon represents a great initiative, a neat way of attracting fans of the arcade fighting genre and bringing them together. And according to this year’s Battlekon‘s motto it’s going to be a blast because “This time, it’s personal“. So if you happen to live nearby Bucharest, then hitch a ride to the “University Area” and join the fun.

This year the following tournaments will be held:

  • Super Street Fighter 4 [ 1 v 1, PS3 ]
  • Soul Calibur 4 [ 1 v 1, PS3 ]
  • Tekken 6 [ [ 3 v 3, PS3 ]
  • Marvel vs Capcom 3 [ 1 v 1, PS3 ]

Each match will feature 3 rounds. The team (or individual) who wins 2 rounds advances to the next stage.  The event starts at 10:00 AM, on March 26. For more details head up to
