A mystery figure in brown leather gloves (no white gloves for him), dramatic beams of light, a throbbing soundtrack, and a backdrop that looks like it was borrowed from the set of Hackers. It could only be Sony's official PlayStation 4 unboxing video, giving us a look at the box that launches this...

I barely ever buy the collector's edition of any game. That's not to say I don't like the idea, but it's hard to justify the increased cost for the same game, especially when the included bonuses aren't all that good in the first place (I don't know who decided that collector boxes should come with...

I've just come back from an amazing trip (how many of you have ever been 635 miles from the North Pole or driven a dog sled?), which means that it's time to get back to work while trying to unpack and recover from jet lag.

After a bunch of TUAW TV Live episodes featuring various buddies Skyped into my machine, I've decided to do a solo gig this week. I'm not sure if Skype is what has been causing some of the issues that have occurred recently, but this might be a good way to do a little bit of troubleshooting whi...
