The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim: Fus Ro Dah is Child’s Play
Well I guess it was always going to happen. Supporters of Microsoft Xbox 360′s controller free system Kinect will surely be wetting themselves with joy at the thought of being able to play Bethesda’s blockbuster The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim by just waving their limbs and shouting.
Well it is official. Bethesda announced today that they will be bringing Kinect support to the 100 hour plus RPG. If my tone sounds a little lacklustre about this, it’s because it is. But then who am I to judge. If there are people who like the thought of being able to use dragon shouts just like the Dragon Born then fair play to them. The update should be available to down this month and has over 200 voice commands. I am honestly very interested to see how many takers this update will get. I and don’t mean people who will download it for the novelty value, I mean the people who genuinely find this a welcome addition. Given the general disapproval for Kinect titles, such as the dance-athon Star Wars – Kinect or the upcoming Fable – The Journey, it will be very interesting to see.
To be fair to Bethesda, from the video they have released the Kinect voice commands to look very well integrated into the Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim. Aside from just the famous dragon shouts there are several other features that are genuinely useful. Like the quick save and quick reload. And the ordering of items in the inventory by weight and value. What do you think of Skyrim Kinect? Leave your comment in the section below.
