You can bet on pretty much anything in Vegas, but gambling over the cover of a video game? That's a new one.
Indeed, oddsmakers are letting die-hard Madden fans put their money where their loyalties are -- and the returns aren't bad.
VegasInsider, which tracks the odds on pretty much everything you can bet on in Sin City, notes that Denver QB Tim Tebow is the odds-on favorite to be the cover boy of Madden NFL 13. Chances of him landing the coveted (and cursed) cover currently stand at 5 to 1. Odds of him Tebowing in the cover shot? Probably a bit lower.Read More »from Vegas lays odds on next ‘Madden’ cover

Photo credit: Red Hill StudiosThe health benefits of video games are adding up quickly.
Researchers at the University of California at San Francisco have launched an experimental program to determine whether video games could replace existing exercises for patients with Parkinson's disease.
It's already well known in the medical community that exercise and physical therapy can help ease the tremors and other symptoms of the disease, but getting patients to stick with the routines can be difficult.Read More »from Video games may help ease Parkinson’s symptoms
Ellwood Bartlett (Gail Burton/AP)Lottery winner Ellwood "Bunky" Bartlett scored the jackpot of a lifetime when he nabbed $42 million in Maryland's Mega Millions back in 2007. Apparently, that's still not enough to make his video game development dreams come to life.
The aspiring game designer and current millionaire is enraging the internet by taking to Kickstarter in an attempt to get his project funded by, well, you.
"A smart investor has partners," he told Kotaku. "I will be investing as well. This also helps me to see if there is actual interest in the type of game I am proposing."Read More »from Millionaire hits up gamers to fund his game idea
Think the original Super Mario Bros. was hard? You're right!
Gamers, by nature, are a nostalgic bunch. We tend to fawn over the games that got us into this hobby, often forgetting the agony and frustration suffered at the hands of those very same classics.
Now, though, there's scientific proof that some of the best-known games in the industry were actually really, really difficult.Read More »from Research: Old video games were really hard
Exit the dragon, enter the Tiger...and Shaq.
The affable ex-baller seems cozy enough co-hosting TNT's Inside the NBA, but Shaquille O' Neal is also a big fan of martial arts. He's starred in his own wonderfully lousy fighting game, trains in MMA, and even had the nerve to playfully challenge UFC legend Chuck Liddell.
That fight (thankfully) never happened, but the Big Van Damme apparently has another athlete in his sights: Tiger Woods, who presumably killed Shaq's master, and now Shaq wants revenge. Or perhaps vice versa.Read More »from Shaq tries to tame Tiger in kung-fu golf fight
