On Gear Live: Apple OS X 10.11 El Capitan now available, here’s what’s new!

Star Wars Battlefront PS4 Limited Edition console unboxing! This isn't our typical unboxing where I explain the product in detail, unfortunately, as we had a mishap early on in the video that I needed to take care of, as you'll see. Still, Darth Vader shines here in all his glory, emblazoned across the box of the limited edition Playstation 4, as well as right on the PS4 console itself. The bundle also includes a custom Star Wars PS4 controller which you won't find anywhere else, as well as a hard copy of Star Wars: Battlefront.

You can order the Star Wars Battlefront PS4 now.

I bring you a unique first-look at the Alienware Steam Machine in this episode! The Alienware Steam Machine ships with the Steam Controller, and aims to bring the PC gaming experience into the living room with a small form factor that maintains the upgradability of a typical PC. Running SteamOS, the Steam Machine boots right into Steam, ready to play your downloaded games. What's more, it can even stream Steam titles from your PC on the same home network (necessary, because SteamOS isn't optimized to play all of the titles available on Steam.)

Being that the Alienware Steam Machine looks to mimic the game console experience, you only get the Steam Controller, no keyboard or mouse. You can also use Xbox 360 controllers wirelessly, as well as Xbox One controllers when connected directly to the Steam Machine by USB.

I give you a look at the HUGE Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector's Edition for Xbox One in this episode! The star of this show is the gigantic Master Chief & Spartan Locke statue.

You also get a full Halo 5: Guardians game download, Warzone REQ bundle that includes 14 premium requisition packs, access to Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series, a Guardian model that you build yourself from Metal Earth, Spartan Locke's classified orders, dossiers on Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris, the Spartan SteelBook, and a two week Xbox Live Gold trial.

Seriously. All of that is part of the Limited Collector's Edition for Halo 5. The price comes out to $249.99 for all of it, but is a $189 premium over the standard Halo 5 disc. Is it worth it? The statue is definitely cool, but it's a lot of pay unless you're a hardcore Halo fan.

You can order the Halo 5 Limited Collector's Edition now.

I give you a look at the rugged Samsung Galaxy S6 Active in this episode! The S6 Active is a more protected version of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone. It's got a 5.1-inch Quad HD 2560x1440 display, 16MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, a fantastic 3,500mAh battery, and a built-in rugged design that can withstand the elements. I'm talking about IP68 certification, making it water resistant, windproof, dustproof, etc.

The Super AMOLED display has a 577ppi capacity, and looks great even in sunlight, and the Samsung Exynos 7420 is an octa-core 64-bit processor (4 2.1GHz cores, and 4 1.5GHz cores.) On the inside it's got 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage.

The Forza Motorsport 6 Xbox One Limited Edition Bundle features an Xbox One console with a custom blue paint job, complete with two racing stripes and Forza Motorsport logo. The controller included also features that same blue color and racing strip design, along with metallic trigger buttons.

The console also ups the ante with a 1TB internal hard drive, which is double what you'll find in the typical Xbox One console. Forza Motorsport 6 is included as a digital download, as is the Forza Motorsport 6 Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack, which features 10 specially tuned and liveried cars, like the 2009 Ferrari 458 Italia, 2014 Lamborghini Huracan, and 2013 McLaren P1.

The console is also programmed with custom engine sounds when turned on, off, and when a disc is ejected. In the box you'll also find the Xbox One chat headset, power supply, and HDMI cable.

It's time for an amiibo blast from the past with the Retro 3-Pack! Included in this set are Duck Hunt (the dog with the duck flying above), Mr. Game and Watch (the predecessor to the Game Boy), and R.O.B. (the robot peripheral for the original NES Nintendo Entertainment System.)

I give you an up-close look at each of these old school amiibo characters, which work great with Super Smash Bros U and 3DS! Let me know your thoughts in the comments - I thought Mr. Game and Watch was pretty cool the way you could change his pose, and the detail in R.O.B. was awesome.

Take a look at the Sea Green color of the Nintendo 2DS, the first Nintendo 2DS with a white-colored face and rear backing! Definitely a unique look for a Nintendo console with the Sea Green color, this one is a little harder to find than the red and blue versions. What do you think of it?
