Only Two Months To Retirement: The Showdown Effect

Paradox's The Showdown Effect now has its own website. Why it hasn't had its own website since its announcement in March last year is perhaps a pertinent question. But with the side-scrolling cop movie-spoofing/celebrating multiplayer due out on the 5th March, it's about time it did. And as you might imagine on such an occasion, there's a new trailer too.

SEE HOW THEY SAY LINES LIKE LINES FROM FILMS:

Of course, this is from Arrowhead, who gave us the very appealing Magicka, and is clearly aiming to be very silly.

And that new website, a year in the making?! Er, it's a single page with a YouTube video and a beta sign-up, that links back to the old Paradox game page. Let's hope they put all the time that freed up into bug-testing this one, I guess. ZING!
