Dead Space 3 for Kinect May Respond to Your Swear Words

By - Source: Polygon | B 22 comments

Dead Space 3 for Kinect will allow you to cuss as a valid command.

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…

    "GOD DAMNIT RUN FASTER!"
    - Character has a sprint boost for small period of time
    "...........wow"

    After a lot of years of yelling at a game - the game may just listen now.

    Too bad its for consoles, would love this for my PC.

    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.

    In the movie Demolition Man there were sound monitors mounted on the walls that would print a citation if it heard you swear:

    Kinect for Windows brother, go buy one! Has a different camera that can perceive things much closer. So sitting it on your desk as you sit there works well with it.

    Since I was in like 4th or 5th grade! LOL
    Back then it was the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)...

    Notice that they dropped the "Entertainment System" part?
    Imagine if they kept the Nintendo Entertainment System NES suffix on all of thier consoles.
    SUPER NES (for this console the suffix was still used)
    N64ES (eh)
    GameCube NES (eh)
    Wii NES (LOL)

    Hello, would you like to play with my Wii NES?

    yea it can, i remember the comment that got me a sanction a while ago was upvoted allot, and even after than when i censored it with * i still got a sanction too... all it takes is a person to not like your comment to get it a sanction and removed, no matter how liked it is.

    stevecall01my best friend's sister makes $65/hour on the laptop....


    My best friends sister makes way more then that being a virtual stripper, your best friends sister must be really fat....

    Props on the Jack Thompson reference.

    Now if only the kinect would pick up a controller spike combo with a repeated f bomb as some kind of nuclear self destruct....

    I don't see why we have to wait for Kinect PC for this. I've had mics and headsets on my PC for years and people have been hearing me cuss since I first did multi-player.

    Oh wait, Microsoft tax, right ;)
