Retro Wrap-Up - Summer 2014 Edition | oprainfall

Another week is behind us, ladies and gentlemen. This week’s Retro Wrap-Up celebrates the season. For some of across the USA, summer is just beginning. For others, it’s already well underway, or we’ve long since gotten our degrees and don’t have school being out to look forward to anymore. Still, there’s something about summer that makes me pretty nostalgic. It’s always a good excuse to go on vacation or hit the beach. Hell, more than one of you are probably going to tackle some of your gaming backlog! What are some of your favorite games to play over the summer?

In the spirit of bustin’ up the beach, the oprainfall Retro Commercial Research Team—me—brings you some games that bring summer to mind. Whether we’re talking California Games, Kingdom Hearts II and the whole…six days of summer that game had, or much more: please do enjoy some of summer gaming’s greatest TV moments here in North America.

Here are the highlights from this past week:
