2014 kicked off as all years do nowadays with the International Consumer Electronics Show ( CES), which took place between January 7- 10th in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show, much like previous years, was dominated by 4K TVs ( although this year saw a particular focus on curved screen technology from the likes of Samsung and LG), mobile accessories and plenty of new innovations focused on the smart home. Gaming had another of its traditionally slow starts to the year, with few major releases hitting stores in January, although there were still some gems to be found as Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, the first game in the series to feature a female protagonist, hit PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, Canadian- developed survival strategy Don’t Starve made its way to PS4, initially as part of the PlayStation Plus lineup, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition on Xbox One and PS4 made us remember just why we loved the original reboot so much, and the mobile market got a genuinely great title in Deus Ex: The Fall - if only we’d had some more like that! In movies, we had the 71st Golden Globes on January 12th, which saw multiple wins for big name flicks like American Hustle and Dallas Buyers Club, while The Wolf of Wall Street and Gravity also managed to nab themselves gongs. There wasn’t a whole lot to get excited about at theatres, though, with disappointing showings from the highly anticipated The Raid 2, RoboCop and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.
