Over 30 years after its original release, Atari has decided to resurrect one of its most beloved game franchises: Swordquest. Released in 1982, this ambitious gaming series was a pretty unique proposition at the time. As well as offering $150,000 worth of prizes to players who could solve all the puzzles in the game series, Atari also teamed up with DC to release a companion comic alongside each game. Now, thanks to Dynamite Entertainment, the long dormant franchise is getting a brand new run of comic books starting this May.

Welcome to Tuesday.
If you thought the Galaxy Note 7 saga was over -- we wish it was -- you'd be wrong. Samsung might bring refurbished devices back. Kind of. We also toured the New York Toy Fair for its high-tech toys and games, and fell in love with PS4-exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn.
We're a little over a week away from Nintendo releasing its next console, the Switch, and the company is prepping the launchpad. If you want to secure your Nintendo Account user ID for the system, now's the time to do so. Apparently this replaces the Nintendo Network ID from previous consoles, according to the ever-vigilant Wario64. That's not confusing or anything. If you manage to get your account set up (a few of us here are just being hit with password-reset pages), let us know in the comments.

The developer behind hit indie game Rogue Legacy has a new title coming in 2017: Full Metal Furies. The teaser trailer shows off a brawler with a retro aesthetic, four unique classes of female protagonists, and a serious sense of humor.

Many people have fond memories of using the Game Boy Camera, but to call its low-resolution black-and-white shots "photos" would be... generous. Don't tell that to Roland Meertens, though. He recently devised a neural network that turns Game Boy Camera images into more presentable pictures. He trained the AI to clean up, colorize and fill in details for images by feeding it thousands of photos reduced to Game Boy-level image quality. The results aren't exactly good enough to frame for posterity, but they're far easier on the eyes.

Last week, Snowman -- developer of beloved snowboarding game Alto's Adventure -- announced that its next game, Where Cards Fall, would be out this fall. However, we're going to get another game from the studio before that. Alto's Odyssey, the sequel to Alto's Adventure is set to launch this summer. From the brief teaser trailer released today, it looks like Odyssey will change things up in at least one significant way: Alto and his crew will be visiting the desert.

The classic game of Simon is a test of memory and reflexes. How long a sequence can you remember, and how fast can you repeat it? The new Optix headset turns it into a test of stamina as well: How long can you stand having flashing lights directly in front of your face?
