Bluetooth gets intelligence boost, official colour of 2014, cobalt-60 thieves will die.
How many times have you been watching a sporting match and wanted to tell the ref exactly what you thought of them? Turns out you still can’t do that in NBA 2k14 for Xbox One, as the Kinect is always listening to you, and calls a foul when you drop profanity on the black and white stripey bloke.
When you’ve got a foot of freshly fallen snow to absorb any impact, there’s no sledding stunt that seems too dangerous.
