On Gear Live: The Technics 1200 Turntable Returns

Latest Gear Live Videos

Asus ROG G75

The key feature of a gaming laptop is that it should be, you know, a laptop: Easy to pack up and carry around for gaming sessions at a friend's house or on the go. Too many gaming machines add so many extra bells and whistles that you need a crate just to carry them around, which kind of ruins the point. The best gaming laptops should be light enough to easily tote, offer enough customization for you to make them your own, and include powerful features that can deal with demanding games without burning out your hardware by the end of the month.

The sun will set on 2015 in just a few hours, and we are just in time with our annual top 10 list of the most-watched Gear Live video episodes. Over the past year, as expected, there was a bunch of gear that made the list, with the release of the 4th generation Apple TV and Apple Watch. The launch of the Seagate Game Drive for Xbox was big with our viewers as well, appearing in our top 10 twice! Other items, like the New Nintendo 3DS XL, Alienware Steam Machine, and Toyota Entune platform also proved popular as well.

Star Wars BB-8 Sphero

Meet BB-8 - the app-enabled Droid that's as authentic as it is advanced, and the latest entry in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide.

Set it to patrol and watch your Droid explore autonomously, make up your own adventure and guide BB-8 yourself, or create and view holographic recordings.

Mission Belts orange

The Mission Belt is an evolution in belt design, style, and function, and after wearing one for a number of months, I can whole-heartedly recommend it in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. The belt is sleek and clean, and provides a perfect fit for everyone. With no holes to stretch or wear over time, your genuine leather belt always looks great. The tip of the belt inserts into the ratchet belt buckle, where a locking mechanism holds the belt in place from the back. To remove the belt, just press the small metal lever on the bottom of the buckle, and the belt slides out of the buckle. You're no longer restricted to 1 inch size adjustments, but can get a perfect custom-fit every time. Not only will you look good, you'll feel good too, because one dollar from every Mission Belt sold goes to help hungry families worldwide become self-sufficient.

Xbox One Gears of War Bundle

Microsoft has a bunch of solid deals on Xbox One bundles this year, and we think the Gears of War bundle provides the most value for the dollar making it our pick in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. Buying an Xbox One also nets you access to the large back catalogue of Xbox 360 backwards compatible games as well, making it an even better upgrade for Xbox 360 owners.

The bundle includes an Xbox One with 500GB storage, full-game digital download of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, newly updated Xbox One black wireless controller with a 3.5mm headset jack so you can plug in any compatible headset, 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold, AC Power Cable, and an HDMI Cable. You also get access to the Xbox 360 Gears of War collection if you play the game before the end of the year!

Oh, and if you wanna splurge on this one, skip the Gears of War bundle and go for the Xbox One Elite bundle instead.

New Nintendo 3DS XL

Games are a popular holiday gift, and that's why they're a staple in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. Up next is the New Nintendo 3DS XL system - yes, that is "New" capitalized. It's part of the name. The console combines next-generation portable gaming with super-stable 3D technology and added control features. Take 3D photos, connect with friends, and enhance your gaming experiences with added amiibo support. The New Nintendo 3DS XL system plays all Nintendo DS games (although, those won’t appear in 3D.) Also, if you buy one, keep in mind that the AC Adapter is sold separately. It uses the same AC adapter as the Nintendo DSi, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo 2DS, so you might already have one.
