Our Kickstarter campaign has received $74,000 from over 2,000 backers! TV Tropes 2.0 is coming. There is no stopping it now. We have 4 days left. At $75K we can also develop an API and at $100K the tropes web series will be produced. View the project here and discuss here.
Killed Off for Real:After you defeat him, The General gets sniped by the Viper Squad lieutenant ( who is actually Ashley) after he attempted to drop the nuke over the city.
Gang members and hardware
The Dragon: Lieutenant Davis in the first game, Yuri "The Fury" Andreov in the second game.
Homage: The fifth mission in Pursuit Force is a big homage to the movie Speed. The Warlords have rigged a bus with a bomb. Should the bus's speed decreases below 100mph, the bomb starts ticking and will eventually blow up. The difference between this and the movie is that the bad guy lets you try to safe the commuters. But with traffic getting in your way while you try to line up the bus with the ranger's jeep without slowing down and only having little distance to spare, its not that easy, especially if you're trying for an A grade.
Reds with Rockets: The bulk of the Warlords in Extreme Justice is made up of russian mercenaries who were in the Spetsnaz. They have an arsenal of Cold War era weapons. Ironically, they're blue most of the time.
Semper Fi: In Pursuit Force, the Warlords are made up of renegade US Marines.
Western Terrorists: Ironicly and disturbingly made up of rogue US Marines in the first game. Ironic, considering whats going on in real life. Disturbing, considering the fact that they are highly trained marines and are very well-equipped.
The second game had The General resort to using russian mercenaries.
Molotov Cocktail: They make heavy use of these. Throwing these is also Billy Wilde's only form of attack inPursuit Force.
Nail 'Em: The Nailgun, which is a very weak weapon. Does not do much damage and fires slowly. Only advantage is it's rather large clip size. A car filled with Nailgun-armed Mookscan be very dangerous. In Extreme Justice, It Took a Level in Badass and became something akin to a submachinegun.
Oh, Crap: "Its a modified earthmover. The Convict must've bought it from The Syndicate. Is that Hard Balls driving it? GET OUT OF THERE NOW!!"
Revenge: The reason they're working with the Villain Team-Up in Extreme Justice is to just get back on Pursuit Force for throwing them back in jail.
Vixen mook: "You men are only good for one thing: target practice!"
Animal Motifs: A vixen is a female fox. Foxes are known to be sly and cunning, just like this gang. Also since the gang is made entirely of girls...
Batman Gambit: The third mission (mid-boss level) has you driving a truck said to carry valuable items that has caught the interest of The Fox. The truck is empty, its just a dud. After holding off the Vixen hijackers long enough, The Fox appears and tries to steal it. You then promptly jump out off the truck, jack the nearest Vixen car and proceed to chase down and shoot her off her chopper.
Early-Bird Cameo: The Swamp King briefly appears twice in the second mission as a Mook Maker releasing squads of jetskis. You later encounter it later on as a boss fight against Lockjaw. Also in the same mission, the Striker Twins will be taunting you. You face off against them in the last mission of Act I.
Gory Discretion Shot: Upon defeating him, Lockjaw is thrown off his harpoon gun and hangs on for dear life as he was being sucked by his hovercraft's main propulsion blade. He eventually loses grip, gets suck into and the next scene shows the main propulsion blade blowing up.
Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Subverted. During his boss battle, Lockjaw attacks you by shooting a harpoon at you. However, it only knocks you off your feet. You do end up trying to pull yourself up from falling into one of his hovercraft's propulsion blades.
No Name Given: We will never know Travis Striker's twin sister's name since you killed her ( technically, she got herself ran over by that DUKW). Nice knowin' ya sis.
Originally two battle scenarios are designed but only one is used for the game.
Pirate: Complete with an insignia that resembles the standard skull and swords symbol of pirates of old.
Press X to Not Die: Other than taking cover completely from his attacks, whenever Lockjaw is about to fire his harpoon gun, you will be prompt to press the button that flashes onscreen. If successful, you catch the harpoon and throw it back at him. You need to do this in order to break open his shield and be able to shoot at him.
Heel Face Mole: Somewhat subverted a bit. Lucy was never on their side; She was spying on them for the MI 5. She does stick with Pursuit Force throughout the game after the commander blew her cover.
Reverse Mole: The Syndicate lieutenant is actually a MI 5 agent tasked with spying on the gang
The Syndicate: This is the gang's name. They're in the bank robbing business.
Bigger Bad: Turns out that they've been working with (or using) The Warlords to stage a terrorist threat in which, with the (intended) disposal of Pursuit Force, they will come to save the day and win the hearts of many, making it easier to control the population of Capital State and turn it into a Police State. Seeing how they calmly disposed of Big Bad The General when he went rogue certainly qualifies them as this.
Jerk Ass: Decker is pretty much this, constantly taunting at Pursuit Force that Viper Squad is better.
