Briana Lawrence of Clearance Bin Review writes, "As the heat index seems to constantly read in the triple digits — thank you, Mother Nature, for reminding us what a desert feels like — now is the time to sit back, relax, blast the AC and play some video games.

Way to go, Nintendo, it looks like that nifty little console of yours is really hitting the mark. Now let us do battle by hitting the beat to Sephiroth’s theme!
What? Isn’t that how you do battle?"
