The lights are on
You'd be forgiven for thinking that a game that wears its '80s action-movie inspirations on its sleeve isn't what snobs would call cultured. A new trailer for the Showdown Effect proves the naysayers wrong, also showing that everything looks classy in slow motion.
Paradox Interactive is bringing Arrowhead Games Studios' over-the-top shooter The Showdown Effect to PCs next week. It's a 2D shooter filled with ridiculous action and nonstop quips from a cast of familiar characters.
Here's a more accurate portrayal of what the game looks like. As always, you're free to play your own waltz music at home. It's a free country.

2D multiplayer sidescrolling shooter? I am interested.
It's so classy I raised my pinkie finger when I clicked play.
Idea for another subtitle to this article:

Hmm... Well, that looks interesting.
