I'll admit it -- seeing something about Kinect in my inbox that wasn't a user-made project or hack for once grabbed my attention. That something is PowerUp Heroes by Longtail Studios and Ubisoft.

In what will surely be a turnoff for many of you -- but a blessing for overall sales -- the game centers around Xbox Avatars. Described as a "full-body fighting game," you'll duke it out as either a superhero or a supervillain in one-on-one fights.

Interestingly enough, defeating opponents results in you acquiring their powers. Anyone else have the little Mega Man tune play in their mind?

Kinect owners, be on the lookout for PowerUp Heroes this June.
