FIFA 15 has recently been released, and it claims to have pretty good physics. For that, they can thank last year's edition, FIFA 14.
Now, I (and another user on this site, whose name I will refrain from mentioning - you know who you are, Dan) have played a good amount of FIFA 14. For some reason or another, though, we haven't really delved into the physics of its engine, the "next-generation" EA Sports Ignite Engine. Whether or not the recent engine is a marketing ploy is irrelevant in this
Because everyone else was doing video game physics, so why not?
First off, let's address something. What does Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo have to do with quantum/theoretical physics? Not much, right?
Well, I stumbled across an article on mentalfloss.com, which I'd recommend looking at if you're at all interested. http://mentalfloss.com/article/17994/super-mario-world-quantum-physics-lots-fun
It describes how some anonymous gamer (with a lot of time on his/her hands) program
One of the most interesting (and most challenging) techniques of playing a guitar is effectively utilizing a pinch harmonic (the aptly named "squeal"). It is typically used in metal music, as the heavy distortion used in amplifiers can greatly increase the sound of the otherwise subtle harmonic. Eddie Van Halen, for example, used this technique often, and well; an overwhelming number of his solos feature it. Take, for example, his iconic solo in Michael Jackson's "Beat It" (this obviously is a c
They said senior year would be a breeze. To avoid such a horrifying prospect, I decided to indulge in AP-C Physics, which, as they say, is one of the most challenging classes the school has to offer. But, as the Chinese proverb goes, "The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials".
I am not taking AP-C Physics simply because I enjoy torturing myself with hard problems. In actuality, I hope to be able to tackle hard problems step-by-step. There is always a logic
