Child's Play organizers have announced that the annual charity drive is now underway. The drive was first launched some five years ago by Penny Arcade masterminds Gabe and Tycho as a fundraiser for the Seattle Children's Hospital, and has since grown to become a global hub of good will for those in ...

With E3 next week, the Joystiq crew has been frantically searching for all of our essential items for the conference. We've scoured Flickr to see dozens of images of people throwing their packing lists (image not our list; via Tengaport), and we've compiled what we think is the quintessential list ...

Most of you got the joke. Obviously, some of the commenters were a bit clueless, but 2P Start's satire Undisputed Champion took top honors as the most popular webcomic of the week. For those of you who did not click on the "for context" link and were left in the dark: last week, 2P Start discovere...

Did you know that every game-related webcomic is just a knock-off of Penny Arcade? Most of our commenters have, at some point, figured it out and/or cried "PA did it!" as loud as they can with Lucida Grande font. Steve Napierski of Dueling Analogs figured it out, and explains the gospel in his lates...

The exhibitor list for this year's Penny Arcade Expo has been made, checked twice, and finalized. While the past exhibitors are all still present (including favorites Pink Godzilla), the major publishers have signed up en masse. Joining Nintendo and Microsoft this year on the super-sized list of 5...

It looks like ze secret formula has once again worked, as Scott Johnson's Extra Life strip claimed the top spot for best webcomic of the week. Coming in second place was Dueling Analogs, while the frisky VG Cats take third. As always, thanks to everyone who voted and be sure to let us know of any ga...

Originally, we planned on making this an "awkward moments" edition, whereby we find M-rated game screens with suggestively AO moments (e.g. Bowser belly-flopping / dry-humping in Smash Bros. Melee). However, 2P Start has unwittingly discovered the formula for success in the Weekly Webcomic Wrapup. ...

Sure, Extra Life's Scott Johnson often uses Pac-Man and Mario for a topic, but the sheer combination, cleverness, and timing with the new Championship Edition give him the edge for game-related webcomic of the week. Coming in second place is Dueling Analogs and third place goes to Penny Arcade. A sp...

It's the picture that sells it, really, and presentation can be just as important in a webcomic as content. Despite the usual, numerous objections in the comment section, Scott Ramsoomair's VG Cats strip took the top spot as the week's best webcomic. Coming in second place was the second Penny Arcad...

Joystiq patron Mobat555 sent us the above image answering the question of where do all those Mario's go once the fall into that seemingly bottomless void. We don't know who made this fine work of art (if you do, please tell us), but we love it. Update: The above image was created by Bill Mudron th...

Ctrl+Alt+Del's take on the Starcraft 2 announcement earned top honors in this week's webcomic wrapup. The punchline may have been explained a bit too much, as many of the commenters noted, but it didn't ruin the joke. Second and third place go to RPG-TV and Weird Comix, respectively. Thanks to every...

Joystiq reader Aberu last week pointed us to the World of Warcraft community comic archives. We're not including them in the wrapup because we'd rather highlight the (already voted upon) comic portal here, but WoW fans should just go peruse them all (if they hadn't already). Here are our other pick...

A VG Cats guest strip by Shawn Handyside of Staccato Comics and his conspicuous adoration for the state of his Pokemans earned the top spot in this weekend's webcomic wrapup. Second and third place went to Penny Arcade and Digital Unrest, respectively. Thanks to everyone who voted and be sure to let...

This week, pirates are getting all the attention. Let's not forget, of course, who the real ultimate power is. Or who you can talk to for all of life's answers. Those rum-filled scallywags can struggle with a fleet of tea drinkers, the ninjas are just waiting to kill everyone left while flipping out...

It's the punchline, really. Steve Napierski's Dueling Analogs bundles a PS3 with the Wii and takes home the Quidditch Gold Cup for Webcomics. (Yeah, we know that makes no sense.) Second and third places go to Digital Unrest and Extra Life, respectively. Thanks to everyone who voted, and be sure to l...

Some sketchwork from LittleBigPlanet released this week revealed some of the more oddball and potentially copyright-infringing characters you might be able to create. Will our LBP buddy designs become as much of a craze as posting our Mii characters online? Congratulations to Fanboys Online, celebr...

Riding off the coattails of Spider-Man 3's massive box office success this weekend (we kid because we love), 2P Start took top honors for this week's best game-related webcomic. What we love most is the comic's simplicity and its decision to avoid any and all text. Ctrl+Alt+Del made second place, w...

"You put two comics from Penny Arcade in the poll? OMG TEH BIAS!" Now that we've gotten that out of the way, we laughed too hard at two of the Penny Arcade strips to try and choose a favorite. Also, with the Ghost of E3 looming over our heads and industry folk pouring press releases into our inbox l...

For the second week in a row, 2P Start has taken the top spot as the webcomic of the week -- they've come a long way since their start on Valentine's Day. Second place goes to Penny Arcade and Extra Life takes the third place position. Thanks to everyone who voted; be sure to let us know of any game...
