E3: Kinect voice commands in Mass Effect 3

BioWare has revealed how Kinect will play a part in Mass Effect 3. Players with Kinect will have the opportunity to interact with the game using their fleshy vocal cords. Players will be able to select dialog choices and give their party members commands in combat.

Demonstrated in the sterile Microsoft Press Conference environment today, the commands seemed to work well as a BioWare representative ordered his fighting compatriots to advance and fall back. Considering how much I yell at my television while playing games, this could either be a blessing or a curse. We’ll try and find out which it is for you as we get more information this week.
