Kinect Support Coming to Skyrim
 


Kinect for Xbox 360 support is coming to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Available
for free as a title update slated for release this month, Skyrim Kinect for Xbox
360 Support will feature more than 200 Voice Commands... including the game's
dragon shouts.

This must be the feature that came about as part of their internal creative week thing. I hope more features from that creative week get patched into the game!

Only played it on PC, but I like to see that kind of stuff. Good use of the Kinect I think.

...Why would you want to kill things in Skyrim by waving your penis?

Wait...

Sammael 04-12-2012 11:06 AM

meh... I still don't have a Kinect and the only thing I feel like I am missing out on is Gunstringer and the Ubisoft ball kicking sim...

I find Kinect more useful as an accessory for the system. Not a solid tool for games, but for the console itself.

So voice recognition... which means... If you have a mic on your computer there is no good god damn reason why this shouldn't come to PC as well.

I hope developers are going to alter the way they look at the Kinect. It is a failure at what it was intended to do. To me motion controls are gimmicky, waggling or flailing to do an action that just pushing a button does not make gameplay better.

But voice activated menus? Why is this better than button pushing? because a controller operated menus are clunky. you have to navigate through menus and sub menu. By just using voice controls you can go right to the menu, without changing your controller mindset. It is more fluid.

The kinect as a support system for enhancing games could usher in a true next generation.

The amount of times I have to repeat myself to get the Kinect to work on voice commands would maker this very frustrating experience.

Misses being in theme and dives, through crashing broken glass, right across the 4th wall.

Except that Skyrim isn't handling the voice recognition - that's the xbox+kinect. It just passes that as input to Skyrim. You'd have to be running voice recognition software on your computer separately from the game, and those two would have to be capable of communicating.

I.E. No chance, except for some of those crazy kinect hackers.

The first decent use of kinect and a reason to maybe purchase it.

I love Kinect voice command support for Mass Effect 3. This makes me happy

Cygnus 04-12-2012 09:06 PM

But why can't the XB headset do that? kinect is crap..totally useless.

The kinect SDK is out for PC, I'd like to see this as a PC skyrim mod.

TUT 04-13-2012 08:05 PM

You can do that today with things like VR Commander for any game on the PC. With experience I can tell you, they have way way too many commands. It's nice for a good handful of voice commands. I'll be amazed if it's as precise as they show. The guy also has perfect dictation.
