College football players want the NCAA Football video game back as much as you do

If you're bummed that EA Sports killed its NCAA Football series, know that the college football players it featured are bummed out, too. A few said they don't want money from any legal settlement — they just want the game back.

EA Sports ended its long-running college series last September to settle lawsuits brought by former players — which became a class action involving current players — over the uncompensated use of their likenesses in the series. This particular case...

How to build your own Game Boy with a Raspberry Pi and a hot glue gun

Buying a Game Boy from Goodwill is something of a risky proposition. It's not so much the $5 it might cost you, but the unknown condition of the 25-year-old handheld.

That didn't stop a blogger who goes by "microbyter," who overcame the damage caused by an exploded battery in a secondhand Nintendo product. He took the handheld's iconic shell and inserted his own hardware to create the "Super Mega Ultra Pi Boy 64 Thingy," a process he documented on his website.

Nvidia's Shield Tablet Makes a Good First Impression, Not So Sure About the Controller

GPU maker Nvidia is expanding its Shield line of handheld Android gaming devices. Where the first Shield was a quirky mash-up of gaming controller and LCD screen, its follow-up is far more reserved. The Shield Tablet (starting at $299/£229 for a 16GB Wi-Fi model) is an 8-inch tablet that at first glance looks like a standard black slate with a glass screen. Its gaming focus comes from its 32-bit Tegra K1 internals, a separate wireless controller that will retail for $59, and a $39 cover...

Nvidia’s New Tablet Tries Damn Hard to Earn Real Video Game Respect

What would a tablet have to do to be seriously considered as the best place for you to play games? Native Twitch streaming? Good-as-console versions of popular games? Play-from-your-couch capability?
