Pokémon: Let’s Go! to the soda machine for a refreshing beverage. Thanks for the screenshot, Pablo!
This Wellcheers Ocean Soda machine appears in Lobotomy Corporation, a Korean monster management sim. I have no idea why those prawns are cosplaying as Minions.
Flavor text for the Wellcheers machine warns,”If someone offers you an opened can of grape-flavored soda, you must reject it.” According to the wiki, it’s a reference to “a Korean internet urban myth where people will allegedly go missing after drinking from a sleeping pill-laced opened can of Welch’s Grape Juice. They will then be abducted and held captive in fishing boats.” [Source]
These vending machines in front of the South Atlantic Supermarket in Daytona Beach ended up getting replaced by new models in The Crew 2. Thanks for the screenshots, Cornelius!
As a self-trained expert in video game soda machine law, I’d say they need to increase the blur effect on that logo by approximately 30% to square away this crypto-Coke machine in anime RPG Closers. [Source]
Okay, so it seems the new Leisure Suit Larry game has gone out of its way to troll me with an off-screen soda machine. How do I know I’m being trolled? Well, the game’s lead writer tweeted this a couple of months ago…
How could someone toy with my emotions like this? Thanks for the screenshot, Richard!
Even the soda machines are creepily corrupted in Silent Hill: Origins. Thanks for the screenshot, Andrew!
Travel to San Fransokyo with the stars of Big Hero 6 in Disney Crossy Road. Just don’t get distracted by the soda machines, or you’ll end up street pizza. Thanks for the heads-up on this one, Tikhon!
This soda machine probably explains why Ubisoft’s mobile gobble ’em up is called Hungry Dragon and not Thirsty Dragon. Nice find, Γιώργος!
Capsa is an open-world social game in the vein of Second Life — and what better place to socialize than around the old Cola Cola machine? Thanks for the submission, Cornelius!
You might recognize this soda machine from other games like Estranged: Act II, Emily Wants to Play Too, Project Lambda, and SCUM. People have asked in the past how I handle these stock assets — or, for that matter, recycled assets like the Nuka-Cola machine from Fallout 4 and Fallout 76. Generally speaking, I add them to the site for archival purposes, but I don’t count them toward the collection’s “grand total” after their first appearance. Just a peek behind the curtain…
Project Lambda is a remake of the original Half-Life using Unreal Engine 4. It’s still a work in progress, so we can only hope the team will eventually replace these stock soda machine assets with shiny new versions of Half-Life’s Soda Soda Pop and juice vending machines.
Thanks for the screenshot, Cornelius!
The Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. is underway, and I grabbed this screenshot while scouring the campus of Vault-Tec University. For those keeping score at home, it’s the same model previously used in Fallout 4.
As always, folks can’t get enough of that great Nuka-Cola taste…
Dy-no-mite! Arcade brawler Dynamite Deka EX: Asian Dynamite brings us this pagoda-style soda machine, curiously located in the middle of a temple. [Source]
