Video Game: Off World Interceptor
You'll blow chunks.
The back of the box.

Third-person vehicular combat game, originally for the Three DO Interactive Multiplayer, later re-released for the Sega Saturn and PS1 with the Totally Radical name change to Off-World Interceptor Extreme. The main draw - at least nowadays - are the supremely Narmtacular Full Motion Video cutscenes, which are curiously MSTed in the game itself.

The cutscenes can be seen here.

This game contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Colonel Fancy (yes, really) considers your recklessness to be an asset, as his own men don't take as many risks.
  • Chewing the Scenery: The guy playing Fancy must've been picking the scenery out of his teeth for weeks...
  • Cool, but Impractical: You know, instead of that giant viewfinder... periscope... thing, they could've just put the information on one of the many monitors!
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: You and Helga.
  • Dramatic Pause: Colonel Fancy... well, he... he has so many of these ...
  • Fake Nationality: We're not quite sure where Helga's supposed to be from, but odds are the actress who plays her isn't actually from there.
  • It's Up to You: ... even though they could quite easily order a full squadron to take care of this at pretty much any time.
  • Justified Extra Lives: They're clones.
  • Professional Killer: Your character, and pretty much the whole basis of this game's Excuse Plot.
  • Red Shirt: See all those other "trash men" with you at the start of the game? Take a guess as to what happens to them.
  • Reformulated Game: The "Extreme" port has different level design and subtle tweaks to the basic gameplay.
  • What Could Have Been: The game was originally titled "Orion Off-Road" and was meant to be more of a straight racer.
