Microsoft's Kinect system hasn't gained a lot of traction amongst more hardcore gamers, but there's been a lot of curiosity about how it might be used in their preferred games. One possible example is shown by the enterprising team at PC Games Kinected, who have hooked it in to Skyrim:
Like the original Skyrim Kinect, you can use your arms to swing swords, cast spells, use your bow, or block with shieds. Movement, like walking/running and sneaking, is still handled with body movements and has seen an increase in precision. As a result, gameplay using the Bow is very enjoyable and preice.

As well, Voice Commands have been greatly improved. In Skyrim Kinect: Fus Ro Dah, you can use your voice to select up to 11 spells, to drink mana/health potions, to equip your sword/shield/bow, and to equip 2 different armor sets.

Voice Commands also allow you to say your favorite shouts (10 currently), by simply saying the dragon shout words of power. Not only can you say "Fus Ro Dah", you can also simply say "fus", or "fus roh". The majority of the shouts, which have multiple shout levels, use this approach.
You can check out a video of the gameplay in action with Kinect here. What do you think, enough to get you interested in Kinect?

The motions aren't all that great, but the voice commands are amazing. (especially given that I played most of the game not knowing how to assign quick keys)

I agree with Nerfy, the motions look awkward but for a game with so many selectables the voice control would be a great addition.

screw standing up. I'd use some voice commands though.

I hear dark souls is much better than skyrim (console)

would be happy to stick to mouse and kb (for prescision movement) and add the voice commands for selectable items and sets, it seems to have a small delay but keeps you out of menu diving, thumbs up from me, well done to the guys working on this!

Dark Souls is better then Skyrim in terms of challenge. I found Skyrim too easy, which made it a bit dull after the mid way point. Once you hit level 40 the game just doesnt seem to scale enough.
