It's the 90's! Arcade machines and electronics

Recommended Posts

So I've been thinking lately that the time period is kind of under utilized, one thing that isn't really a thing today but was really popular back then was arcade machines. Not only could these introduce a new kind of building(an arcade, duh) but spiffo's and the various restaurants and bars could have an arcade machine or two that you could loot for logic boards to get electronics xp and components.

And think of the sweet spiffo cabinet art we could have! :lol:

I never thought of this but it is so true! Arcade game cabinets were everywhere in the early 90s :)

I remember them being in places like Dairy Queens and Pizza Huts, would indeed be awesome to at least see a Spiffo cabinet in a Spiffo's :)

( We can only hope for a Spiffo mini-game after 1.0 :P )

A strong, relatively easy to use in early game,  sound source? Now that sounds as a good strategy to get a horde where you want. I can just imagine chillin` and thrillin` while catchin` some Z`s ( Get it? Catch some Z-s?) in a crampled up room and then boom shakalaka-xplode the whole goddamn place with my TV remote. Maybe firstly break all the windows, bring some amplifiers from other restaurants and then let MJ-s tunes bring death and despair to the ones that are dead and... despaired?

Just read the new Mondoid and was ecstatic to see the arcade cabinets :D

I'm not only amazed you all added it so quickly but grateful for how much you listen to the community :)

So cool and many <3s!

Spiffo pinball machines..

Ingame pinball with a huge window to blind the player and loud ding-ding-dong sound to make him not hear attracted Z's approaching..

DO IT!

 

BTW there must be a shitton ov VHS players. We have TV, but no videotapes. Why not add this as an alternative books/magazines for illeterate charaters? This also makes generators more valuable. This also (if implemented well) will boost social life, lol.

There is one jukebox that I know of, in the music shop at the mall. I remember collecting things like this for a friend of mine, movie posters, Slurpee machines, popcorn machines, hotdog rollers, jukebox. He had a throne with spiffo dolls on either side, and jewelry scattered all over the floor. I thought, why the heck isn't there an arcade, even as an annex at the cinema or something? So awesome that it's being implemented, just that much more pixel porn. Jukeboxes in those 50s cafes, and in dive bars. And maybe some apartments could be designed as a "collector" cave. They could have rare furniture, arcades, rare posters etc. Even a working miniature train set or some shit lol
