Paradox Interactive is bringing all that cheesy goodness together with The Showdown Effect, a 2.5D multiplayer action game inspired by those same movies.

So get ready to quote your favorite clichés be it “I’ll be back”, “He was only two days from retirement”, or “I’m getting to old for this Sh%$”, and head over to The Showdown Effect website to learn more register for the beta.
