Xyanide is an old school shooter from Playlogic in the same vein as Square's Einhander and Treasure's Ikaruga. It's fully 3D and offers some of the best environments to be seen in shooters to date. You pilot a ship that has two modes, mechanical and organic, where you are able to switch modes on the fly dealing greater damage to the enemies of that type. Oh yeah, it's going to feature Xbox Live support as well. Perhaps my explanation isn't too great, I'll just let the screenshots speak for themselves. If you want to see this game in action, a trailer is available at the game's official site (link above!).
