If this is true it will most likely be used in small ways such as moving planets with your hands for scanning, per say. Another possibility are mass effect mini games using it. lol

Could easily be used for the mini games (mining a planet, hacking the computers) or going through menus (switching guns)

Interesting.

Thing is, I don't see what Kinect could do for Mass Effect. Voice recognition? Maybe for ordering your squad, but that's kind of meh. R6 Vegas 2 did the same thing, it was more efficient to use the buttons.

I don't see what it would add to combat, inventory management, or anything else. It don't really care if they do it or not, but I think it's unlikely.

Well, the omnitool sword on his arm is in the game, but was not revealed until recently, so presumably this is correct.

EA did make voice commands for The Sims 3 Unleashed already, so it's entirely possible they just ported that over.

If they let you order your squad through arm/hand motions it would be cool.



Even if pressing a button is faster and more convenient lol

I guess biotics? I thought MS was planning on updating the kinect to work with a controller at the same time, otherwise I don't really see it doing much if this is even true.

The kinect can work as a mic for any game, they wouldn't put the bar on the case if that's it.

Quoting yourself is tacky so I'll leave this unattributed snippet.

Bioware has a habit of releasing mini-games ahead of the release date. I'm really crossing my fingers for a downloadable Kinect/Webcam dance game. We can import our dances into the ME3 victory rave.

Yup. I AM easy to please.

Now that would actually be cool as the map in the game is manipulated like you would some Kintect software.

The covers will always have default Shepard. That's a given at this point. The background though and the art just seem to mesh better compared to the atrocious ME2 one.

Here's what Bioware have had to say about Kinect in the past: "We're not going to do a party game, we're not going to do Dance Dance Krogan for Mass Effect. The reality is it's going to have a really positive impact. Can we create a greater sense of immersion during conversations by using gestures? I think we probably could and I think that's where we'll explore." Bioware boss Greg Zeschuk told GamesIndustry.biz last year.

And BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka: "You could bolt it on, do it as afterthought, kind of 'Hey, Ta-dah! It's Kinect-enabled! Check!' Well, that's not how we would do it. We would actually try to think about how you do it in a way that actually makes the game better."

I'm hope for some throwbacks. I've lost shield! Taking cover. I will destroy you!

They could also use Kinect to get the paramour achievement.

It'll probably tie into the interrupt system. Punch to punch someone, laugh to laugh, etc.

Yeah I agree. I don't hate it, it's about what I expected. The ME 2 cover was so fucking bad that it made me jump to the limited edition just to avoid having that shitty cover in my collection. This isn't anywhere near as bad. Resembles ME 1's cover a little bit I suppose.
