EXP Podcast #132: Summer Lovin'

The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and the beaches are crowded, summer is in full swing. To celebrate, PopMatters just featured a great selection of the best summer entertainment. Our compatriots even offered up their choice for great games and podcasts for the season. This week on the EXP Podcast, Scott and I continue the conversation with more of our own picks for games we associate with the summer. As always, we encourage you to join the discussion in the comments section below.

Some discussion starters:
- What games do you associate with the summer?
- Does replayability or game duration affect this association?
- Who is your go-to-character in Smash Bros.? (That's right. We only ask the toughest questions.)

    Have a good summer, guys!

  3. I'm with you guys on the idea of replaying old games. It's a great excuse to revisit new games for second playthough, too.

    I've been thinking about replaying Final Fantasy VII in light of the Final Fantasy VII letters over at Paste earlier this year:
