Dead Space 3
Dead Space 3 Getting Kinect Voice Commands
Written By
View author's profile

EA has announced that Visceral's Dead Space 3 is to feature Kinect voice commands, apparently making it the first co-op game to feature such functionality. You'll be able to use voice commands to help your co-op buddy according to the press release, which cites examples like "Find partner! Fire stasis! Attack Enemy!" as possible instructions you'll be able to bark at Kinect. Isn't that what a headset is for?

"The voice commands in Dead Space 3 give players a unique way to take down the terror, whether they choose to face the Necromorphs alone in single-player, or alongside a friend with drop-in / drop-out co-op," said Executive Producer, Steve Papoutsis. "Dead Space 3 delivers the action-horror experience our fans have come to know and love. And with the ability to survive the adventure alone, with a friend, or with Kinect, we're excited about extending the spine-tingling Dead Space experience to a whole new audience of players."

Alright then.

Using Kinect voice commands will make it easier to give your co-op partner health or ammo, to find objectives and revive downed allies, the press release states, although we can't imagine it'll be too difficult without Kinect. Hmm... Dead Space 3 is out on February 5th, 2013.

"Better with Kinect!" - It's usually never better with Kinect.

Is it sad that the community can tell what type of comments will be accompanied to each post on this website? 90% of which is people complaining because they are never happy about anything because they dont like change or progress.

Very disappointed with EA decided again for DS 3. Coop mode join in and less Survival Horror. Now Kinect for voice commands. Oh god those type is screw up for DS series. Oh please franchise is all about amazing story and singleplayer and graphics. Those is most important for DS series. I accepted Coop and hope it is good then we though when game come out next Feb. I felt like go out there and slam EA faces so hard because bought some franchises let down with add crap things that franchises not need!!!

Voice Commands and Coop is useless for DS 3. My rights is bit angry with EA because DS series is one of best franchise and true survival horror story. But Dead Space 3 is now everything ruins. :(

Very sad in my opinion. :(:(

Well Dead Space 3 is now seem to be achievements only to me because EA ruins many things for Dead Space 3. I will be happy if DS 3 turn out to be great but hard to tell those type ruin franchise. :)

So now when you are talking to your co-op partner the kinect will randomly decide to do something that will kill you, cant wait.

C'mon people.

If you have a Kinect, give it a try and see if it works.

If you don't then you don't need to care enough to gripe do you?

why don't they just leave the normal games alone and concentrate on using kinect functions on actual kinect games rather than add kinect to everything.

Well this is pretty shitty idea. I do remember that if you play single there is no partner and when you play in co-op you already talk to your partner.... Who comes up with pointless garbage like this and wastes resources on it? It's like ME - it was fun for few minutes and then I got tired of it...

it sounds like DS3 is the new ME3. Both these games have taken nearly identical steps from their sequels. the addition of coop/mulitplayer, kinect, more action oriented, gears of war-esque additoin like cover and rolling, etc.

Who knows what dragon age 3 will be like.....
You can all thank EA for fucking up some of your favourite game franchises.

ME3 was a good game and i'm sure DS3 will be good. But their identity and uniqueness is pushed away in favour of money and popularity.

Ha, seems like a feature that is just being throw in. Hasn't been mentioned until a little less than 2 months before launch. Should be a fun game, but adding kinect support is useless.

Good to see and know that they just add stuff into games now just because they can and aren't bothered by whether its actually needed or useful.

Sounds like it was added late so it's functionality will be questionable. Also sounds like they got the idea from Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

You can do all this with a controller. Developers have opportunities to use the Kinect in I tree sting ways but they just do stuff like this... They could've made the Kinect count how many times you say "oh shit" during the campaign or something.

Here's an idea. Wait to try the game out and then decide if you like it or not before you insult the designers. Do half of you even know how much work it takes to make a game of this magnitude? There's a reason a good game takes two to three years to be released after conception not to mention there's a reason the minimum staff on a project is from 100 people. So until you can make it better yourself why don't you appreciate something instead of complaining about everything(yeah yeah forums are made for that, bullshit - escape the captivity of negativity because all you whiners are gonna get tea bagged like a vat of brisk tea if i catch you in halo or cod. Go cry to your momma instead. Maybe she' listen.

DeadSpace3 sure is getting a lot of trendy/anti-horror elements shoved into it. It seems like at every junction, DS3 is looking less and less like the DS I want to buy/play. I don't even know what to think about this confused Kinect implementation.

I can just picture that talk... "DeadSpace3 is getting non-stop flak about the action-tone we have injected into the game, I think if we add some Kinect commands, we will bring back the horror-tone all the DS fans want and keep asking for"

@36 Well, at least it's not the only genre suffering currently. Maybe Doomsday predicted a industry crash in the next decade?
