The horrible secret behind EA Sports' Ignite Engine photo
The horrible secret behind EA Sports' Ignite Engine
by Conrad Zimmerman

I'll admit, when EA Sports' Andrew Wilson took to the stage during Microsoft's Xbox One reveal, I tuned out. If memory serves, I used the opportunity to take a much needed trip to the bathroom because I was certain there would be nothing there to hold my interest. 

I was wrong. Hopefully, it's not too late for us.

Preview: NCAA 14 getting physical, getting physics engine photo
Preview: NCAA 14 getting physical, getting physics engine
by Steven Hansen

NCAA Football 14 is going to be a much better game than NCAA 13. I can assure you that much because it has implemented a physics engine, the Infinity Engine 2. If the name rings familiar, the first iteration of the Infinity Engine was implemented in last year’s Madden 13, prompting me to give it high marks. Football is physical. Physics are good for football.

The six week lead time on NCAA 13 (ahead of Madden) prevented the team from having enough time to employ the physics engine last year, but now the series is getting its new iteration, one designed to remedy some of the growing pains of the first version of the engine. The post play hijinks, like players generally falling over themselves like drunkards or occasionally looking like some monstrous contortion straight out of an Asian horror film, are just one of the issues that have been addressed.
