Dead Space 3 Kinect Commands (Video)


I like the Kinect. It’s fun and quirky and lets me and my kids dance around the lounge with Just Dance 4 on the weekends and totally not after a few beers on Saturday night… totally.

But I’m yet to find a game that has voice commands that I really think add to the game. They were used relatively well in Mass effect 3 and Skyrim, but were largely unnecessary.  While the voice commands look good in this official video, I do wonder why they were added?

Actually, no. That’s not true. I know why they were added; Microsoft paid them to include Kinect support in the game to sell more devices.

I’m not sure if this is common knowledge yet or still just a conspiracy theory but are we really meant to believe that the hardcore horror game developers were sitting in the boardroom and thinking what the next Dead Space really needed, then Joe in the corner piped up… “Voice Commands.. that’s what we’ve been missing all this time!”

Having said that I don’t think it takes anything away from the game so no harm no foul really and at least that Microsoft money gives some more developers jobs in the industry, which is also good.
