I don't know what it is about Square Enix games, but they always feel like they cost too damn much. This is especially true of the handheld titles -- I refused to pick up Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy for $39.99, waiting instead...

Blacksmith forges a real Kingdom Hearts Keyblade

Man At Arms is the perfect Internet show. A guy builds weapons from TV shows, games, and whatever else based on user comments. Then after he builds it, he goes and smashes a bunch of stuff up with the newly created weapon. I love it! This latest episode sees the master blacksmith recreating the Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts. The next episode looks to be teasing the sword from Minecraft.

Gallery: New Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix screens
by Dale North

New Japanese screenshots of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix really show off the work Square Enix has done for the characters in the game. In this massive gallery we have shared below you'll find several character closeups that give you a good look at how much better Kingdom Hearts can look on the PS3. Nice shading, sharp edges, punchy colors -- it looks like a Disney production.

The scenery and background objects don't look near as nice, though. 

We recently told you that HD Remix is coming to Japan on March 14. I'll remain hopeful for a localization.
