Dead Space 3
Dead Space 3 'Better With Kinect' Video Demos Voice Command Gubbins
Written By
View author's profile

Dead Space 3 will be getting Kinect voice command stuff. We already know that, but perhaps you're interested in knowing what kind of commands you'll be able to issue? No? Well tough. There's a video showing the Kinect stuff in action, which is largely predictable stuff.

You can shout at your Kinect device to reload your weapon, to bring up the navigation line, quick heal or find your partner, or alternatively you could press the button on the controller to do the exact same thing. Still, it's nice to have options, isn't it?

There's a range of other handy voice commands you can access in Dead Space 3, all of which are covered in the video below, hosted by Executive Producer, Steve Papoutsis. You can also get our latest preview and interview with Papoutsis through the links.

Dead Space 3 is out on February 5th, 2013 in North America and February 8th, 2013 in Europe. The demo will be available to download on January 22nd, 2013.

Pretty superfluous stuff, only noises I'll be shouting at my screen are the odd yelp or terror.

The guy in the video looks far too happy when doing this. Far too happy.

I can only imagine there are topless models on trampolines having a custard fight just out of shot, because there is no way in hell he is that pleased with the Kinect integration in this game.

Here we go. ME3 all over again and most people will try it for a few then go back to playing normal.

My Girlfriend finds it funny to yell 'grenade' while I'm playing Mass Effect 3 so I blow myself up...
Now I mute Kinect.

Pointless! the only game I've attempted this with was Skyrim, doing the shouts on that just took to long. The only useful thing was being able to quickly pull up the map but sadly you couldn't disable any of the other features. My kinect is solely used for pausing films and nothing more. Glad it was a present and didn't waste my own money on such garbage

Can't wait for dead space 3 , but my kinect will be going nowhere near it.
in my experience nothing is "better with kinect".
Kinect was just a knee jerk reaction to wii's success imo.

Its quicker to press "x" to reload rather than saying "reload", making it worse with Kinect surely?
having voice commands in a game built on suspense makes no sense =/

@5 you and me both... but I still use it with ME3 and Skyrim. Maybe its just me but I really like having the voice commands, I tried it out when ME3 had it and fell in love with it. Being able to keep my thumbs on the sticks and fingers on the triggers while yelling reload or throw grenade made me enjoy ME3 just a little more.

In the time it takes to say and register the command why not just press the fucking button?...


Will never understand Kinect in action games like this.

I actually really liked the voice commends in ME3, I always used them for squadmate powers. Maybe they don't work as well for some people, but they were accurate 95% of the time for me, and made sense for controlling other people.

How can it possibly be quicker to say "use stasis" than just pressing the damned stasis button?

I'm not entirely sure how this tech would translate, "HOLY ****ING **** MY ARM! NO NO NONONONONO SHI--" into a command. Wouldn't it be faster to just pull the trigger or press a button for your weapon/stasis?

Is it just me or is EA really gung-ho on the whole Kinect thing? I just started NFS: MW and THAT has Kinect support - in a racing game. Is it really that big of a selling point?

One Kinect related achievement and I swear to God...

Wait what were the co-op commands? I thought you could grief your partner with voice commands? Or I guess they must have meant that people in the room could yell out commands, that's disappointing.

All these commands seem not worth it, you could just press the button on your controller. Mass Effect 3 did it well because you could just remain in combat without having to open your weapon/power wheel up and it actually made combat faster.

News flash, Microsoft: everything is made WORSE with Kinect. Time to accept that. Even Nintendo stopped making Power Pad games.

@11 NFS most wanted 2012 is good with kinect, you can custom your car with upgrades while you have the cops on you. It's pretty decent.

so instead of hitting the A button to revive my guy or hitting the X button to reload I can try to yell at my XBOX 3 or 100 times until it recognizes my voice...

this is so cool and necessary!
how did I play the first two without it?

better just pressing the button to do everything as it is just stupid shouting reload no normal person in an environment is ever going to do it which makes it less realistic if you say it
