We are happy to announce that we will be back at Phoenix Comicon this year for 2016 in June! But, you will see that we are no longer under the name “The Critical Gamer”. There is a reason for this, but you can find out about that in our About page.

This year at Con we are planning to one-up our appearance last year by providing more games, more consoles, and more stations to play on with your friends and other Con-goers. But thats not all! We are going to have our gaming tournament again this year times 3! We will be hosting 3 tournaments this year, one on Friday, on Saturday, and Sunday. Look for coming details about that.

This is exciting for us and we hope this will be a great year. We would really like to be able to come back for subsequent comicon shows, but we can only do so if we have the funding. So come to our booth this year, help out, get some cool stuff, play some games, and compete for awesome prizes!

Check for an Event page title Phoenix Comicon 2016 in the coming future where all of the details of our appearance will be uploaded.
