The 2015 Phoenix Comicon is officially in the books, as it concluded its four-day run on Sunday in downtown Phoenix. Attendees of all kinds filled the convention center’s halls to the brim, enjoying the guests, gaming, and fantastic cosplay it had to offer.
Among the various festivities, the event offered up a lot of video game entertainment with the AZHP Gaming room, Arizona Video Games Showcase, and of course, video game themed costumers! Check out some of our best gaming highlights from the show.
