Comicpalooza’s gaming hall on the 3rd floor inspired gamers to play, compete, watch and learn. Games and systems, along with old-school arcade games, were available for casual enjoyment while PC and console gaming competitions ran throughout the weekend. Attendees found new passions or embraced a love that took them to their past!
Official Houston Outlaws Watch Party
The Houston Outlaws is one of the hottest teams in the Overwatch League, and we’re not just saying that because they’re our home-town heroes. On Friday, May 25, 2018, they competed in California against the San Francisco Shock, while we cheered them on right here in the in the George R Brown Convention Center!
For the non-competitor, or those who wanted to practice before combat, our free play areas hosted 30-45 minute sessions with access to our library of steam games, including those from our tournaments. Gamers of all ages and skill level were encouraged to participate, with parental permission for the young ones of course.
Did you compete?
Playing around is cool and all but if you wanted to prove your worth on a competitive field of electronic battle, attendees were able to join one of the many gaming tournaments that happened at Comicpalooza.
