Madden NFL 13 News Post


Eurogamer recently spoke with Madden NFL 13 Designer Victor Lugo, as they discuss some the Kinect features, including dynamic grammar and over 6,000 voice commands.

Quote:
Example: "Manningham. Streak. O Line. Aggressive. Set hike!" No fiddling with menus, less fuss. That's how it works at a basic level, and: "For advanced users we allow you to use the controller as well as use your voice to get that extra command in and edge out your buddies," said Logan. But there's more. "One thing we're doing, which is pretty innovative with this game, is using what we're calling dynamic grammars," Logan said. "There are commands that we're loading directly into the game right now. What dynamic grammars do is take text and dynamically load it in, the name of the characters you have, your custom audibles and basically uses phonics to sound it out."

Which is a long-winded way of saying: "If you type your name in there you can just say your name. If you put all your custom audibles in you'll be able to say them. All that adds up to the ability to add any play into the game and call out the name of any player, and that's over 6,000 commands." Neat.

So can we design and add plays into playbooks? Create a whole new custom playbook?

It's not like they're taking advantage of the people that don't have the Kinect... Sure they want you to be encouraged to use the kinect but I don't think it's unfair to non-kinect owners.

And Idk how the whole mic thing would work. If you were for instance, talking to another player online?

They said that when it detects that you are talking to your kinect it mutes your mic until you hike the ball.

Yes, but we're discussing what if you don't have a kinect. Like if you only have a mic will the same functions apply.

the microphone doesnt accept voice commands like the kinect does...the headphones are exactly what they are headphones and not so much a microphone that detects voice commands its just a handphone that allows you to communicate with other people not with the Xbox!!
