GamesBeat: Developers team up with scientists to help make 'smarter' games (interview)

GamesBeat's Giancarlo Valdes: "If you’ve ever magically combined herb plants into pills in Resident Evil 6 or wondered how Max Payne could survive shoving a ton of painkillers down his throat, then you realize that video games aren’t known for their sound representation of science. But for most of them, that’s fine! Like books, movies, and TV shows, they require some suspension of disbelief.

"But those that do base their fictions off of real-world research could use some improvement. That’s where the group of scientists working at Thwacke come in." (Industry, InXile Entertainment, PC, Wasteland 2)

Very, very interesting. A game that loosely adheres to the rules of science. Shocking!
