505 Games has announced Blackwater, a new first-person shooter by Blacklight: Tango Down makers Zombie Studios. What's different here is that it is controlled entirely by Kinect, though there will be an option for traditional controllers. As of now, there are no screens to share, but expect to see some in the next few days.

In addition to Blackwater, two more Kinect-exclusive titles were announced -- Michael Phelps: Push the Limit and a dance title based on the movie Grease. Contain your excitement, please!

After the jump is the remainder of 505 Games' E3 lineup.

Woodland Hills, CA – June 6, 2011 – Global videogame publisher 505 Games revealed today its lineup of titles that will be showcased at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, California from June 7-9, 2011. 505 Games will display an exciting collection of upcoming titles that contains something for everyone in West Hall Meeting Room 407-B Attendees at E3 are invited to come by the 505 meeting space and get a first look, speak to key representatives from 505 and developers and get hands on game play with the following titles:

Kinect™ for Xbox 360 exclusive titles –

  • Michael Phelps: Push the Limit: Get inspired by the greatest athlete ever – Michael Phelps! For the first time ever, Michael Phelps: Push the Limit brings the fun, fitness and excitement of head to head swimming to your living room with the power of Kinect!
  • Blackwater: A first of its kind shooter, Blackwater reinvents the modern combat shooter genre by giving players the ability to completely control the gameplay experience using either a traditional controller or Kinect for Xbox 360’s controller-free abilities which introduces an unprecedented level of immersion to the FPS genre. Blackwater takes its namesake from the private security company founded in 1997 by Erik Prince, a former Navy SEAL, to provide training support to military and law enforcement agencies.
  • Grease™: Get ready for those “Summer Nights” with a return to Rydell High! Grease utilizes the Kinect’s motion sensor technologies to deliver the ultimate Grease experience.

Additional titles (various platforms) –

  • Supremacy MMA (Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system): Armed with arcade-like speed and real in-game fighters—including former UFC champ Jens Pulver and the first real female fighters in an MMA game – Supremacy MMA brings the brutality of the sport to the world as the only MMA fighting game releasing this year.
  • WRECKED: Revenge Revisited (Xbox LIVE® Arcade, PlayStation®Network): As the follow-up to the wildly popular multiplayer racer MASHED – which released on Xbox console, PlayStation®2, and Windows PC in 2004 – WRECKED: Revenge Revisited brings car-based combat and racing carnage to a whole new level with an all new variety of weapons and vehicle enhancements, including five totally insane different aerial strikes.
  • Backbreaker Vengeance (Exclusive to Xbox LIVE Arcade): Backbreaker Vengeance takes the intensity and AAA appeal of the original Backbreaker Football console game and combines it with the pick-up-and-play nature of the wildly popular “Tackle Alley” mini-game in Backbreaker Football to deliver an all-new arcade slant on football.

So Kanye just announced his new game, Only Once. It looks beautiful and personal. It's just a shame that I still have no idea what it is.

I dunno why people are getting so huffy about Windows Store / XbOne Quantum Break crossbuy. It means double the gamerscore for me, and AW and AW:AN are rereleasing on the One so I'll have owned them 3 times over. Great games.

I once considered pitching an idea for a Dtoid Australia podcast, but then I realised it'd probably just be Zyk and I getting drunk on Foster's and complaining about Atlus for half an hour each week while incessantly calling each other cunts.

Why is it impossible to find a raid group in Destiny? Am I just cursed or something? All I want is to get a clan and do a raid.

Hnnnggg. My End of Evangelion video I made like 2 years ago has almost 700,000 views. I never thought it'd get this far. It was the first video I ever made and just did it for fun. Guess I have an eye for editing and an ear for music placement.

Been watching Better Call Saul, being a pretty big fan of Breaking Bad, and it's been pretty decent. Like a b-side to BB. But, this scene with Trevor (GTAV)-famous Steven Ogg has been my highlight. There's more to it before this, but it's the best part.

...Does Ubisoft let their employees do drugs before they write surveys? It really seems like it. "The progression of the main character (skills) in the game should be adapted" Can anyone tell me what the hell that's supposed to mean?
