Even in the midst of Golf Club: Wasteland’s eco-apocalypse, soda machines (and giraffes) survive. Thanks for the heads-up on this one, Ángel!
If you had to guess, what kinds of soda do you think Clayface and Black Adam prefer? I feel like Clayface is way into root beer (obviously), whereas Black Adam just goes with whatever limited edition Mountain Dew variant is on the shelves at the moment.
Oh, and don’t worry if you’re out of spare change. Just smash these soda machines and steal whatever you want! Being bad feels pretty good.
Super-heroic thanks to Cornelius for tracking these down on launch day!
Sir, could you finish crafting your pointy stick/shoehorn killing device elsewhere? I’d like to purchase a drink.

Didn’t spring for the express pass in Planet Coaster? Cool off with a psychedelic Pipshot while you wait in line. Just for good measure, here are the game’s milkshake and coffee machines.
Thanks for the screenshots, itsmethemcb!
Kickflip your thirst with an ice-cold Fizzy Boy in the Game Boy Advance port of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2! Or, if you prefer a lower resolution beverage, here are the same soda machines in the Game Boy Color release…
You can compare these soda machines with their counterparts from the PC version of THPS2 in the archive.
Taking into account palette swaps and various advertising placards, it turns out there are a bunch of soda machines in Let It Die. Check out this lineup…
Thanks for your diligent work, Tikhon!
The blue Superjuice machine featured in this screenshot from Space Pilgrim Academy is already in the archives, but the green version is new. Just remember to drink responsibly…
Thanks for the screenshots, Cornelius!
Fun Hospital is a free-to-play game inspired by Bullfrog’s classic Theme Hospital. In place of Theme Hospital’s Kit Kat-branded vending machines, Fun Hospital offers a vaguely futuristic 360° soft drink experience.
If these vending machines from No More Room in Hell are accurate, Hell sounds pretty awful. [Source]
Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is an adaptation of Counter-Strike Online, a follow-up to Counter-Strike developed by Valve specifically for the Asian market. Does Counter-Strike: Nexon Zombies have soda machines? You bet your rotting rear-end it does!
I wasn’t able to track down this next one myself, but several players were kind enough to upload screenshots of it to CSN:Z’s Steam Community. That said, I’m not sure if I’d drink anything from this particular soda machine. It looks dangerous.
Several soda machines from elsewhere in the Counter-Strike series also appear in CSN:Z, as seen below…
Majesco completed a sequel to A Boy and His Blob for the Nintendo DS back in 2005, but never released it due to financial problems. Luckily, a few screenshots have survived, including this subway scene featuring Dr. Blob, Blob Rite, and Expensive Water drink machines. [Source]
Faced with a difficult choice, Graham throws his support behind the blue soda machine in Let It Die. Thanks for the screenshot, Tikhon!
As far as wrestling games go, WWF Royal Rumble for the Dreamcast is a weird one. Occasionally, in the middle of a match, the lights will go out in the ring, and the wrestlers will reappear in a random backstage area. If you’re lucky, you’ll rematerialize in front of this soda machine.
Thanks for the tip, RomanOnARiver!
Suplex your thirst with this backstage soda machine in WWE 2K18! Unfortunately, it’s suffered a little battle damage in the screenshot below.
Thanks to Some-Crappy-Edits on Reddit for the screenshots!
UPDATE: WWE 2K19 recycles the same backstage areas — along with a familiar smashed-up soda machine.
Thanks for the screenshot, SixPointTwentyFive!
I appreciate games like Biz Builder Delux that respect a player’s time enough to feature a soda machine right smack dab on the title screen. For what it’s worth, a different soda machine appears on the title screen of the Western release.
Apex Construct is a VR shooter set in a robo-apocalyptic future where the vending machines not only dispense restorative drinks (“health cans”), but also a modest selection of explosive ordnance. [Source]
