Dynamite Cop! It's Tuna-Slinging, hairspray-aiming, killer commandos to the rescue!

This is a thread to reflect back on what is possibly the greatest game ever made, Dynamite Cop!

(Story of the game in spoiler)
Spoiler:

Easily the most innovative game on the dreamcast, Dynamite Cop! is a 1 to 2 player game very similiar to the 1997 playstation game Fighting Force, only with everything made much more awesome. You can use all kinds of crazy shit as weapons, including shiskabobs, hairspray, other enemies, nukes, missile launchers, handguns, miniguns, hand axes, vacuum cleaners, pork bones, chairs, boxes, barrels, the goddamn works. It is also worth nothing that this game actually had a sort of DLC called the Detonate Pack! using the sega web browser. Also, whenever you walk near a spot that an illustration is hidden in the VMU makes a sharp beep! that can pretty much be the most annoying thing ever.
You heard it right, there are illustrations to be found all over the place. Like, 36 of them. You want replayability? You got replayability.

I mean, shit, look at this box-art. This is basically the best box art I think I have ever seen.

You see that fucker with the monkey on his shoulder, that is Captain Bruno Delinger, one of the playable characters in the game. He would have been John McClane, had they been able to use the Die Hard license for the game. An excerpt from the games manual:
Captain Bruno Delinger

Some call him Bruno, some call him “Mr. Dynamite,” but try not to call him “Monkey Boy.” Known for his incredible martial arts skills as well as his record for property damage, Capt. Bruno is one tough ball of primate-carrying beef cake! He’s got a trusted monkey sidekick named “Banana” and a real love for seeing things go boom! If he isn’t in the middle of saving the world from terrorists, he’s usually in the middle of trying to save his marriage.

You can actually play as the monkey I guess if you do some crazy video game shit like collect all the illustrations or something, I don't even know.

You can also play as a girl who we are skipping over and a large black man named Corporal Eddie Brown. According to the manual, he used to be an NFL player, but got kicked out after drop-kicking a goddamn referee. So he was like, "fuck that, that's gay" and became a NAVY seal.

FUN FACTS ABOUT EDDIE BROWN:
- Enjoys reggae music and kick boxing
- Tough as nails (and eats them too!)
- Moonlights for a psychic advice hotline.

I am not making this up people, this is all in the manual.

Youtube video of the game's genius in action:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhDlvJTqtGs
There is no part of this video not worth watching.

As you can see in the video, this game even had those QTE events like in Shemue and God of War and Resident Evil 4 and what have you. If you do the right action, you get rewarded with a cool cutscene of you like drop-kicking a fucker in the face or throwing a crazy african voodoo guy off a pirate ship.

Myself, my brother and my friend would play this game for hours after school nearly everyday for like three months. We must have beaten it a combined total of atleast a million times. Now I know that somebody out there had to have also played it, so lets hear it PA, what do you think about the most kick-assingest game ever made?

This OP would have much more content if the internet didn't have complete dick for screens or I could make screens of my own.

exist on

    You better believe this was in the arcades. But it was pretty bullshit because bosses would just rape you with machine guns which took like a quarter of your health bar and before you know it oh hey all my tokens are gone

    when you can piledriver an ememy off a bed, you know its good times.

    my and my bro used to play this so much, and THIS is how to do QTE's. is everybody listening? good, then stop putting them in games for a 'cinematic' approach. QTE's should be pass or fail, but either way they shouldn't allow you to stop progress in the game.

    much <3 for the op

    All I remember is a rocket launcher which effectively nuked the screen; battling giant squid; fighting a crazy chef (and hitting people with French bread loaves); having no idea what was going on; and ...having a battle to the death at the end for who gets to ...marry the president's daughter if you played 2 player? Something like that.

    The facehuggers want to play with you in the AvP LP. Facehuggers also want you to check out the TF2 cards here. View the in-progress RE mansion recreation for L4D here.

    I should really set up a UK version of Goozex. Anyone got any money they want to give me to set it up.

    Fuck yes. This game is the ballsiest game ever.

    I played it with a friend at the arcade, but we were ultimately defeated by that goddamn Krakken. Fucking Krakken. How did the cyber pirates recruit a Krakken anyway?

    Anyway, my friend and I would talk for years about how awesome that game was. Eventually I found out that it was ported to Dreamcast, bought it on EB, and we finally saved the hell out of the President's daughter.
    Spoiler:

    This game had fantastic, cheesy enemy designs, not to mention bios for all the enemies among the console unlockables. The fighting system is a lot of fun, and I believe it was originally developed with the intention of the game being a 3D Streets of Rage. I guess they ultimately decided the system felt too different from Streets of Rage, which is true. Still, awesome system.

    There's also a Sega cameo by that Chickenleg creature that was in Golden Axe and Altered Beast.
