Each week Joshua Fruhlinger contributes This is the Modem World, a column dedicated to exploring the culture of consumer technology. I think I figured out why we love to argue about technology. It came to me via the wisdom of my mom, not surprisingly. It started last Sunday, when I was at her hous...

While we at Joystiq like to be fashionably on time with our Game of the Year picks, our network of sites has already named some winners, and in case you've missed them: PS3 Fanboy Awards, now with one PSP category! More importantly, though, we've learned the staff is very good at making PSP and...

We know Sony PlayStation fanboys/fangirls are the most hardcore followers out of all the console factions. So, when we caught whiff that MTV is looking for a real-life, honest-to-God, genuine, pure-bred "fanboy," well we thought that someone in the crowd of our readers could be -- dare we say it --...

By a rather large margin, Penny Arcade's "The Unhorse" took the top spot in this week's webcomic wrapup. And we're sure all those voters were rooting for the horse, right? Right? Second and third places go to Fanboys and Digital Unrest, respectively. Thanks to everyone who voted, and be sure to let ...

We're offended by the above joke. We tend to look up bunnies all the time, at odd moments, but we do not have A.D.D. Here are our picks for the week's best game-related webcomics; voting after the break. The Unhorse (Penny Arcade) I just wanted to play it again... (Extra Life) Fwooosh! (Awk...

Tim Harding has redeemed his score change. His one-half contribution to 2P Start's "Lego my statue" strip this week one-half earned him one-half of the award for the week's best game-related webcomic. Second and third place go to Fanboys Online – from a week prior but we tragically missed it...

Apparently Yahtzee found the fanboy uproar over his Super Smash Bros. Brawl review so irritating that this week's Zero Punctuation is dedicated to reviewing the unpaid console defenders out there. Yahtzee finds his rage again this week and lashes out in a way that many professionals who make their...

As incredibly bizarre as this is, we couldn't resist posting it. Kotaku reader Jonathan sent in a picture of himself to the site; apparently, he soldered the controller pieces into his flesh had a little fun playing PlayStation cyborg. Don't we all do this when we come home after a long day? Oh, yo...

Sure, the BioShock edition of the webcomic wrapup was last week, but that didn't stop voters making ADAM-fueled decisions in their artistic preferences this week. At the top of the splicer heap, we have Penny Arcade's "To Catch a Predator: Rapture Edition" Second place goes to Fanboys and Ctrl+Alt+D...

We tend to exclude webcomics that reference in the wrapup -- issues of bias and all. However, sometimes a person can manage to incorporate Joystiq and humor in the same comic strip. Sometimes. Enter Fanboys Online. We won't include it in the wrapup, but we recommend checking it out. Here are our pic...

Poor Fanboys Online. First it writes a brilliant satire of current video game events coupled with the film Pulp Fiction. Then it gets neglected in the first week of Webcomic Wrapup eligibility. Then when we try to add it to the polls, the Fanboys website goes down! Thanks to the readers, and espec...

Mario and Sonic team up, so it's time to draw some old blood. For predicting future issues of Sonic and Mario Olympics -- specifically for the final scene in the comic, as cited by many readers -- Fanboys Online earns the rather dubious honor of webcomic of the week. Second place goes to Penny Arcad...

In the event of a tie, the supreme dictator has the right to choose which comic he deems most worthy, and therefore I am deigning the rare victor Fanboys Online the best webcomic of the week over the often favorite VG Cats (Sorry, Scott 1, but Scott 2 doesn't nearly get the same amount of recognitio...

I know what at least three of you are saying out there: "how can you hate Mario Party? It's so fun and non-repetitive and I own all seven versions!" Well calm down there, skipper, because not everyone thinks video board games are the greatest thing since non-video board games. Julian's hands-on with...
