Weekly Webcomic Wrapup's resolve is wavering

S. Prell, @SamPrell

*Entering the hallowed Joystiq chambers, you see before you several doors, each labeled with glistening, hand-carved marble letters. You open the one marked "Webcomic Wrapup" and enter. There you find Weekend Editor Sam Prell, curled in fetal position, rocking gently and muttering to himself. You listen closely and hear the ramblings of a broken man:*

Just a couple more days, just a couple more days. Just a couple more days until the end of the Steam Summer Sale, you can make it. Okay, so you bought Thief while it was 50 percent off. That wasn't too bad, that was a good deal. Yeah, absolutely! And that copy of Goat Simulator, well, that may have only been $2 off, but when you factor in the money you made selling Steam Trading Cards, well, then it was more like $8 off!

What's that? The copies of Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind and Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion you bought? Well, those were just too important to your growing up! You have too many memories attached to them to pass on those deals! Yes, that's it! Oh, and Magrunner: Dark Pulse, that game you got that wasn't even on sale? Well I don't know why you got that, but I can tell you it certainly wasn't because you started going Steam-crazy! What a silly idea! How ... how utterly preposterous! To think that I was going insane! Ha! Haha! HahahahahaHAHAHAAAAA!!"

*You exit the room slowly, but make sure to note your favorite webcomic of the week after the break*
