Watch people blow up in this new Showdown Effect trailer


10:00 PM on 03.04.2013



Showdown Effect is ready to launch this week, and in celebration, Paradox has provided us with a new trailer titled "Le Ballet of Death."

Odds are you've never heard of Showdown Effect, and since it hasn't gotten any publicity or buzz, I don't blame you. Basically, it's a PC game that lets you relive glorious cheesy '90s area action in a 2D arena based setting with up to eight players.

Our review will be coming shortly after launch, so stay tuned if you're on the fence.

The Showdown Effect is back with a new trailer

The next game from the studio behind Magicka seemed intriguing knowing who was making it and that there would be movie-cliché humor. If there's anything to get me to play a multiplayer sidescrolling shooter, it's prob...more

Preview: Showdown Effect promises 2D action movie clichés

While at GDC, I had a very early first-look at a game called The Showdown Effect which revolved around playing as an action movie stereotype. What I was shown was more of a very early prototype (almost still even an...more
