Finally, Some Realistic Video Game Hair

You know how EVE Online has an amazing new character creation utility? The cutting-edge technology doesn't end there. It extends past the face, to flowing locks and beyond to...pretty dresses.

It's strange, and slightly shameful, that games have for so long been able to model guns, and cars, and grass, and smoke and fire so well, but seeing a woman's hair bob or her dress flow seems so new.

Sure, some games have attempted to make things look a little more realistic — Ninja Theory's work with Heavenly Sword comes to mind — but it's nothing like this.
