Halo Kinect: Shout at Master Chief

Exciting news for those who like to shout at television screens -- Kinect features for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary have finally been detailed.

Players will be able to use Kinect voice commands to analyze foes and the information they glean will be added to a database for a quick browse between battles. No idea if Master Chief will wolf whistle at his enemies once he's finished checking then out, however. Shouting other commands like "grenade" or "reload weapon" will cause Master Chief to do those very things. You won't look like you have military tourettes, not at all. I'm not really sure how much this will add to the experience, but it might be a laugh to just bark commands at the game. I'm pretty sure I did that with the original anyway, though.
