News: You can finally have a decent reason for shouting at your TV as the Kinect voice support patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim goes live.
Everyone’s waiting around for a “tidbit” of Skyrim DLC information that may or not come later today, but one thing’s for sure: bellowing Dragon Shouts in real life is no longer limited to a private expression of melodramatic enthusiasm. The Skyrim Kinect Support patch is out now on the Xbox 360, allowing players to use voice commands to interact with/set fire to the game world itself. Here’s that introductory trailer again:
Bethesda have also taken the liberty of providing this rather large .pdf, listing all the usable commands. All your favourites are here – “Raan mir tah!”, “Sort by weight!” and “Healing spell!” (or, in my case, “HEALING SPELL HEALING SPELL FOR GOD’S SAKE HEALING SPELL I’M NEARL DE-”)
This feature is only English-compatible for now, but French, Italian, German, and Spanish versions are in “final testing“. In other Elder Scrolls news, Morrowind turns 10 years old this week. Many happy returns!
