I don't need a 'valid' reason to shout at my tv.

Edited by kpaadet

I cant wait to yell "stop bugging out on me game!"

Edited by zombie2011

I will have fun with this.

Wow a lot of that stuff seems really useful, especially equipping weapons without going into a menu.

Inventory sorting makes this all worthwhile.

Posted by lightsoda

Inventory sorting? WTF!

Posted by OneAndOnlyBigE

It actually looks cool, assuming it works.

Hahhaha a new level of frustration has entered the ring!

Posted by AlKusanagi

I hope "Get the fuck out of the way!!! You're blocking my shot!!!" is a recognized command.

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

That actually seems pretty cool. Too bad I have this on PC with no plans of getting Kinect.

Will I be able to shout IDSPISPOPD at my tv?

Posted by Captain_Insano

Quicksave and inventory sorting seem worthwhile additions.

"Fus Ro" *Quick Saves* "Oh Shit!" *Gets Killed* "Fuck!"

Posted by joelalfaro

I know an Alex headline when I see it!

Posted by lil_cheeks

This seems pretty handy i guess, more for the inventory sorting. I wonder if they will have a "report bug" voice command...

Posted by FoxMulder

Or i could just press a few buttons...it takes the same amount of time...

Sort by weight? What?

Posted by Vestigial_Man

I really hope that they will add some of these features to the PS3 version too, primarily quick save/load and inventory sorting. If they don't, I can imagine many PS3 users would run out of patience with Bethesda and their attitude towards the PS3.

So awesome

Posted by ManMadeGod

Not going to lie, this looks really cool. My kinect has been turned into a $150 mic.

@umdesch4: hahahahahah gold

Posted by Milkman

Yeah, cool and everything but where's my goddamn DLC, Bethesda? 

Posted by EuanDewar

That looks cool as fuck

Posted by Superfriend

The only thing that sucks about this is that you still hear the character shouting after you just did the dragonshout yourself.. that seems kind of weird to me. Maybe there will be an option to toggle it?

Posted by Foggen

As a PC player, this seemed superfluous till he started sorting. Hey guys, I've still got more buttons you can assign. Maybe let me do that?

At the same time, LOL at people playing Skyrim without Quicksave.

So, if I'm on the PC, can I just hook up a microphone and do the same thing?

Posted by Pop

wait wait wait... was sort by weight always there?

Seriously, I can immediately imagine Alex's snarky "seriously" voice when I read the word.

Nope, in this case the voice recognition they're using is part of the Kinect API. The Kinect software does the actual voice to text data translation, they just need to hook into that.

That said, it's just software and there's no reason MS couldn't make the voice-recognition part of Kinect's API work on PC or even with a plain old mic on the XBox for that matter - but of course MS wants to sell Kinects.

They could of course just use some other pre-existing voice recognition API on PC, but I don't think anyone out there makes a voice-rec API specifically suited for integration into games, and they'd have to pay to license that where MS is probably giving free Kinect SDKs to Bethesda to incentivize them to use the peripheral, because again, they want to sell Kinects.

Great, now I have to get a kinect and dump another 100+ hours into Skyrim... thanks a lot bethesda.

Posted by Sergotron

Actually looks useful.

Posted by EthanML

Nobody wants to do this...but how about giving us those inventory sorting options with, you know, buttons and stuff?

Posted by gaminginpublic

You really need a Kennect..? Why not just a head set?

Im sorry. I had to look that one up.

Posted by AxleBro

THIS LOOKS AWESOME!!!

...too bad it wont work.

EXACTLY!!

Posted by Rotnac

at this point a Kinect featured DBZ game just feels like a complete missed opportunity.

Cause then Microsoft wouldn't be able to sell more Kinect kits.
Posted by Robopengy

"Sort by weight" SOLD

Posted by MeatSim

Yelling at your TV to use Dragon shouts is most convincing reason I have seen to get a Kinect. Still not worth the money to me though.

Posted by S0ndor

This actually seems like a useful tool, especially the item stuff.

Posted by AiurFlux

I fully expect there to be a PC mod that does all this. There's already one for the Shouts so it's theoretically possible.

We all know Bethesda got paid oodles of money by Microsoft to add this so I doubt other platforms will get the same love from them.

Posted by redelectric

@KurtBrownridge: Actually I want to do this! I don't want buttons or more menus. I want to say it and be done.

Posted by Cubidog1

All of this actually seems useful long as it works properly.

Check out Skyrim Nexus for mods. It seems that there are voice recognition mods for microphones for PC already made. They don't need to add it, other people already have!!

I really want to do this. Makes me happy that Saints Row and Rayman pulled me away from Skyrim so I can play it with these new features.

Also, apparently people do want to do it as PC mods were built for voice controlled shouts a while ago.

Posted by Law313

How many people actually have the name of all your shouts memorized in the Dragon Language? This is stupid, and NO ONE will use it after the novelty wears off. The item management and quicksave both can be done with buttons and within the same time frame.

Posted by Jedted

This works alright in ME3, hopefully this will become a new trend with Xbox games. I really like the "Quick Saving" in ME3 as well as shouting orders my companions.

Posted by G0rd0nFr33m4n

QUICKSAVE YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YESYES YES YES YES! Money well spend on the kinect just for this !

Posted by BPRJCTX

FO KRAH DIIN MOTHERFUCKER!!!

Posted by EndlessLotus

It's just giving us an excuse to shout the things we already did....
