Now this looks interesting.
One thing I didn't like was having to stop the game, select a power to use and then continue the game. It was that stop and play that I didn't like much in dragon age too. And having to do that every single time you wanted to use a power that wasn't assigned to a button was something of a bother that I just learned to put up with. But the kinect seems to remedy this.
All they had to do was just say the name, and bam! "magic twin powers, ACTIVATE!!!"
If this works out quite well, I may end up getting myself a kinect if it adds to the experience of many games to come in the future this same way. Using your voice in a way to press a button is quite clever if you ask me. So for the time being I will just have to rely on other's feedback about this once the demo hits.
The Mass Effect Beta will be comming to the xbox live marketplace on FEB 14. That is a single and multiplayer demo. So this give you a chance to try out the new kinect features and the multiplayer.
But now that I think about it, what if your in the party talking about shotguns and stuff, and when you say shotgun, your character pulls it out, or your hear everyone on the mic yelling out commands..................this will be interesting indeed.
