I just heard about this game and I think you should too!

Mindjack is a third person shooter where you can “jack” into someone’s mind. The concept works like this: You are a hacker and you take control of people via a headset that connects them to a central network (kind of like a portable mind-internet). When a jacked person dies, you just jack into a new body and continue playing. From what I understand, you do have an actual character as well, and if he dies, then it is game over. Humans are not the only things you can jack. You can also jack into robots and cyborg-monkeys/mecha-gorillas. The enemies can also mindjack.
Gameplay is somewhere between Vanquish and Lost Planet 2. This description is from people who got the game early. Some seem to think it is clunky and leans towards LP2 gameplay, while others say it is smoother like Vanquish.
Online is Demon Souls style. When playing online, a person can join your game and help you or they can “hack” into your game and be an enemy.
As you play the game you level-up, but it isn’t your standard leveling system. You do not get stronger as you level-up, instead you obtain plug-ins that you can use to make the game easier OR harder. You eventually get a plug-in that stops people from hacking into your game, but it is a high-level plug-in.
Sadly this game seems to be getting no hype or advertising. There is a pre-order bonus from Gamestop, which you should still be able to get if you pre-order tomorrow. The bonuses are 3 plug-ins, a special outfit for your main character, and an extra weapon.
