E3 2011: Mass Effect 3 to Support Kinect
Onstage at the Microsoft E3 conference, Bioware has just confirmed that Mass Effect 3 will support Kinect for voice commands.
Not only will you be able to select dialog options using your voice, you’ll also be able to issue commands in combat with your voice. The demo showed off ordering squad members to move and use special attacks through voice commands.
Honestly, the Kinect integration in ME3 looks forced. It’s in there, and it seems to work OK, but do we really need to be saying dialog options out loud, so we can hear the characters onscreen say them again? Did anyone really have issues with controlling your squad in combat?
Microsoft, Kinect can be cool, but you don’t need to implement it in every game.
