Friday Night Fights: I hate the summer

Happy Friday! Welcome to Destructoid's Friday Night Fights! Now that we're officially in to the summer season, I thought I would just get something out there. It's hot. It's uncomfortably, sticky, muggy, hot. Being in Florida in the summer is probably the equivalent of being on the sun at any given time. It's awful, it's bright oh and did I mention, it's hot? Because it's totally hot.
