In an interview with CVG, Producer Steve Papoutsis revealed how Dead Space 3 will be “Better With Kinect”—without making players wave their arms around like lunatics, thankfully.
How, then, does Dead Space 3 incorporate Kinect? Voice commands.
“Being able to do certain things without changing the grip on your controller is really advantageous,” Papoutsis told CVG. “Add in co-op and now you can do things with simple voice commands like give your partner ammo or items – things that would normally take a couple of extra clicks on the sticks.”
More interesting, however, was their decision to include expletive-triggered responses. Fright-induced F-Bombs, after all, are an integral part to any survival horror game.
“There are commands where you might be in a certain situation and you might yell a specific expletive and it might behave in a way that you want it to,” hinted Papoutsis. “We definitely have done some things there.”
