Dead Space 3 for Kinect May Respond to Your Swear Words

The Kinect's motion technology has brought a lot to gaming, chiefly a lot of silly arm waving and repeating commands over and over at the TV.

Now, screaming expletives has become a legitimate form of playing, thanks to Visceral Games, the developer behind the Dead Space series.

In an interview with CVG, Visceral producer Steve Papoutsis revealed that there were certain "secret vocal commands" that players could unlock by… shouting at their Kinect. "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," he explained.

These voice commands will be the only part of Dead Space 3 that "Better with Kinect" entails. Papoutsis stated that since gestures weren't integral to the Dead Space 3 experience, motion control wouldn't be included in the game.

While swearing loudly at the television isn't something that's necessarily new to gamers, it might be for the first time a valid way to play a game…

    AndrewMDNow, I want to see this game banned! This is unacceptable for a developer to release a title game that uses profanity (either implied, not not implied) to boost effects in the game. If this turns out to be a stunt pulled by the company to gain free advertisement then I hope they get sued out of existence!


    Hey, Jack Thompson, Go roll over and find some other industry to bother. Nobody cares if you get offended over some people cussing on a video game. If you don't like it so much, don't buy it. show the developers your contempt by not purchasing the game. But seriously, leave the rest of us to our own enjoyment.

    alidanyou make a great point but i fear your post will be removed due to language, so i sanitized it a bit in case it happens.


    Don't worry, It can't be removed if we all plus one his comment, can it?

    Reminds me of the early text adventures where you would enter cuss words and see if the game responded in kind.
