Weekly Webcomic Wrapup is in new hands

It's fun to crack jokes about how the Summer Steam Sale cleared us all out, but does anyone else realize the raft of time we're recovering on is falling apart? A wave of games from top-notch developers is coming soon, and I can't feign indifference towards any of it. How am I going to pick which to snatch up and which to let wash by me? Do I explore the incoming work for the 360, 3DS and Wii U, or do I abandon what I already own and swim for a brand new console?

It might be the worst thing I've ever complained about, but it stems from loving the hobby. We love games, but reality keeps us from exploring everything we'd like to. Bills are a menace, but the time associated with powering through another epic adventure might be the biggest hurdle. It's a choice we're faced with every holiday season, though, and considering the rise of the indie scene, I don't see it changing anytime soon. How will you wade through the ocean of content still coming our way this year? Will you prioritize your most anticipated games and spend a reasonable amount of time with them, or will you buy everything in sight and occasionally glance at all the games on your shelf that are still in shrink wrap?

Or, you know, you could just put off thinking about it, read last week's webcomics, then vote for your favorite comic after the break!
