There aren’t too many times that I post about video games, but “Grand Theft Auto IV” and this are totally, totally warranted. “Star Wars: The Force Unleashed” sets an all new benchmark for video games by incorporating 3 different physics engines: Havok which is a bomb physics engine for objects; Euphoria which is “actual biomechancial AI” and essentially means characters react at will to their environment; and DMM (Digital Molecular Matter) which makes glass, wood and more shatter as if it were real. The real kicker is that the engineers were able to get all three engines working in concert. So if you toss a barrel at a Storm Trooper he’ll put his hands up to protect himself. When he’s launched into a glass plate window as a result of the barrel, the glass will shatter in accordance to how the Storm Trooper and barrel land upon impact. Sick, isn’t it? Even sicker is the video explaining it all.
