GoldenEye: Source

I’ve seen a lot of video game soda machines in my day, but I can’t help but admire the meta corniness of these Dr. No machines from GoldenEye: Source, a multiplayer remake of the N64 classic using Valve’s Source engine.

007: NightFire

It’s hard to tell for certain whether this vending machine from 007: NightFire for the Game Boy Advance dispenses sodas, but then again, it’s hard to tell much about anything in this game.

007 GoldenEye

You might say I have a “golden eye” when it comes to finding video game soda machines. You know, like this one. From GoldenEye 007. The 2010 version for the Wii? C’mon, work with me here, folks.

Meanwhile, I’m left with two questions: who tipped over the soda machine at MI6 headquarters, and why does the tutorial level render its soda machines in grayscale?
