Weekly Webcomic Wrapup is on that HD remake tip

Jordan Mallory

This week, Joystiq's intrepid PAX Force got a chance to sit down and spend some quality time with two high-profile shooter updates, Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. This got us thinking: as cool as these remakes are, why is everyone going for the obvious, pedestrian solutions? Why use Halo and Counter-Strike when untapped, classic IPs like Chex Quest are just sitting there, gathering dust, not being updated to HD?

Kids these days, with their Chocolate Chex and their Cupcake Pebbles; they don't even know that Chex Quest was a thing. Its remake status could be our little secret, and to sweeten the deal, here are our seven favorite webcomics from last week. Remember to vote after the break!

Cloud Watching (Brawl in the Family)
The Eastern Front (Penny Arcade)
New Store Policy (Virtual Shackles)
Geodesic (VG Cats)
Non-Regulation Poke Balls (Dueling Analogs)
Pipe Dream (Brentalfloss: The Comic)
Mass Explanation (Awkward Zombie)
