Review: Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX photo
Review: Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX
by Chris Carter

Some of my fondest memories were spent with the Kingdom Hearts series. Growing up equal parts Disney-kid and action-adventure fan, I was ecstatic when Kingdom Hearts was announced, and enthralled for weeks on end when it finally reached my disc tray.

Having taken a crack at the entire franchise all over again as recently as the end of last year, you'd expect that I'd be sick of hearing Haley Joel Osment by now, right? Well, HD 1.5 ReMIX managed to reel me in once again, and I'm not complaining.

Grin maker: Wind Waker HD is beyond delightful
by Steven Hansen

Yep, I'm definitely more excited for The Wind Waker HD than A Link Between Worlds. I'm not trying to wind you guys up, really. Wind Waker is just one of the few Legend of Zelda games that I really dig and everything about seeing it in HD makes me smile. Its aesthetic is so clever, so colorful (literally and figuratively), so emotive. It doesn't just hold up. In HD, visually, this decade old title still leaves most contemporary efforts in its winding wake.

Things in the video aren't too different from what you remember, which is fine by me. A couple of the small touch ups, including faster sailing and smoother, quicker Wind Waker movements, are plenty welcome. Otherwise, this one really stands the test of time. Now I just need a Wii U before October.

Look at his adorable little face.
