The Arcade is where bored crewmen (and Ghosts!) go to play. It contains:

  • Arcade terminals, so you can battle [insert villainous name here] and win assorted arcade prizes.
  • A decent number of VR pods and a crate full of VR glasses, so you can visit a VR world and do VR things. Challenge your friends to a go-kart race or sorta-SS13-themed chess match, fight each other in the Thunderdome, battle monsters in the the Gauntlet, blast drones in the Pod Colosseum, or try out Wrestler/Wizard/Werewolf abilities and Syndicate Items in the Murderbox!

It's important to note that you will die of suffocation if you are in the VR pods for an extended period of time, so it's probably worth using the glasses as opposed to the pods if you plan on a lengthy VR session. Just make sure you hide yourself well so you aren't robbed or killed.

The Nerrrd Dungeon

Beyond the arcade machines and VR pods is another area, called the Nerd Dungeon, which is creative, if somewhat derogative, name for a place meant for holding tabletop game sessions. Naturally, it has dice of many flavors, plenty of pens and paper, a critter compendium book, some snacks and drinks, and even a few costume pieces for immersion.

While no room is truly, completely private, this is one of the more private ones, since anyone is here is probably busy playing videogames or logging off here so they look like they're busy playing videogames. This makes it a good place for hosting some quality, uninterrupted tabletop gaming...or concocting schemes with fellow evildoers.

Life and Death in the Grognarditorium

In theory, nobody usually comes in here. In reality, with the Gauntlet and the Pod Colosseum, there can be a bunch of people standing around wearing VR glasses or using the VR pods. This, of course, means that you could messily devour people, flood the room with roaring plasma fire, or even suck ze crew's blaad!

Maintenance information

It's air can be supplied from the Portside Emergency Air Hookup, although the room itself has no vents.

The APC for this room is located on the west wall of aft port maintenance.

The power is supplied via a cable in aft port maintenance.

The Arcade is where bored crewmen (and Ghosts!) go to play. It contains:

  • Arcade terminals, so you can battle [insert villainous name here] and win assorted arcade prizes.
  • A Robustris Pro Cabinet, so you can play a real Tetris clone, not some slow, sluggish knock-off with an inexplicable pause button.
  • A snack machine, so you can get fat spend all your money on space snacks.
  • A decent number of VR pods and a crate full of VR glasses, so you can visit a VR world and do VR things. Challenge your friends to a go-kart race or sorta-SS13-themed chess match, fight each other in the Thunderdome, battle monsters in the the Gauntlet, blast drones in the Pod Colosseum, or try out Wrestler/Wizard/Werewolf abilities and Syndicate Items in the Murderbox!

Although the relatively public location makes it a bit tricky, you could try dragging someone busy in VR land somewhere more secluded to take their blood or eat them up!

The Arcade is where bored crewmen (and Ghosts!) go to play. It contains:

  • Six VR pods and a crate full of VR glasses, so you can visit a VR world and do VR things.

Also, do note that this place is quite close to Engineering and thus the singularity. If the singulo gets loose, be glad the Main Hangar is right around the corner.

The Arcade is where bored crewmen and the Ghosts who get lost in the infinte halls of Donut 2 go to play video games. It contains:

  • An Arcade terminal, so you can battle [insert villainous name here] and win assorted arcade prizes.
  • Four VR pods, so you can visit a VR world and do VR things.

  • A table full of things that are apparently useful for Stations and Syndicates. Like paper, pens, dice, a funky lava lamp, a skull...

It's important to note that you will die of suffocation if you are in the VR pods for an extended period of time, so it's probably worth using the glasses as opposed to the pods if you plan on a lengthy VR session. Just make sure you hide yourself well so you aren't robbed or killed.

Maintenance Information

There is no vent.

The APC for this room is near the southern door.

The power for this room comes from a wire that goes through the southern entrance.

There is no Arcade. All the gaming machines have been forcefully assimilated into the Bar.

All of Samedi's arcade machines are current enjoying a vacation in the Bar.

The Arcade is a cramped broom closet above the Bar where bored crewmen and the Ghosts go to play video games UNDERWATER!!!. It contains an Arcade terminal with an old-school [SYNONYM FOR FIGHT] [VILLAINOUS-SOUNDING NAME] HTML game, a tournament--quality Robustris Pro Cabinet, and four VR pods and a crate full of VR goggles, with a slightly more modern VR world with VR things like:

  • A go-kart track with lots of weird-ass environments and even weirder power-ups.
  • A special court for playing Thunderdome, which is like basketball except with fire, lasers, swords, spears, stims, and, of course, wrestling!
  • The Gauntlet, a gladiatorial arena where you battle waves and waves of malevolent Critters.
  • The Pod Colosseum, which is like the above, but instead of martians and angry toolboxes, it's evil Syndicate space robots. Now 150% bugfree!
  • A human-sized chessboard with pieces that resemble people/things you see in other parts of SS13.
  • The Murderbox, an arena where you can try out Werewolf, Wizard, and Wrestler abilities and Syndicate Items.

It's important to note that you will die of suffocation if you are in the VR pods for an extended period of time, so it's probably worth using the glasses as opposed to the pods if you plan on a lengthy VR session. Just make sure you hide yourself well so you aren't robbed or killed.

If you can't escape this prison ship, perhaps you can escape your life through video games in the Arcade on the far west end of the ship. It contains an Arcade terminal with an old-school [SYNONYM FOR FIGHT] [VILLAINOUS-SOUNDING NAME] HTML game and six virtual reality pods (no goggles, sorry) that allow access to a few VR games:

  • A go-kart track with strange environments and even stranger power-ups for screwing your friends over.
  • A special court for playing Thunderdome, which is like basketball except it's more realistic. That means there's stuff like fire, lasers, swords, spears, stims, and, naturally, wrestling, because there's lots of violence in real life.
  • The Gauntlet, a gladiatorial arena where you battle waves and waves of malevolent Critters. Just like prison!
  • The Pod Colosseum, which is like the above, but instead of martians and angry toolboxes, it's evil Syndicate space robots. Now 150% bugfree!
  • A human-sized chessboard with pieces that resemble people/things you see in other parts of SS13.
  • The Murderbox, an arena where you can try out Werewolf, Wizard, and Wrestler abilities and Syndicate Items.

It's important to note that you will die of suffocation if you are in the VR pods for an extended period of time, so it's probably worth using the glasses as opposed to the pods if you plan on a lengthy VR session. Just make sure you hide yourself well so you aren't robbed or killed.

Maintenance Information

There are no vents, at least not the ones air flows through. For the ones that anger flows through, check out the VR pods.

The APC for this room is in the top right corner.

During the Great Vent War, the arcade machine old-guard bit the dust and was wiped out in the last stand at Entrian's Lost Byte. Afterwards, the VR goggles regiments were forcefully relocated by Secstotzka to the Brig, while one of the Robustris Pro divisions fled to the neutral Arrival Dock.

If you thought playing video games in space was cool, check out the Arcade on the left/port side of the NSS Manta past the Cargo Bay and Fitness Room (i.e. that place for the sports that don't involve sitting at a computer screen), easily recognized by the colorful blue carpet and grey and pink-purple tiling.

This UNDERWATER! game room ON A BOAT! contains three arcade terminals with old-school [SYNONYM FOR FIGHT] [VILLAINOUS-SOUNDING NAME] HTML games, three Robustris Pro cabinets, four virtual reality pods, and four VR goggles on top of said pods that allow access to a few VR games:

  • A go-kart track with strange environments and even stranger power-ups for screwing your friends over.
  • A special court for playing Thunderdome, which is like basketball except it's more realistic. That means there's stuff like fire, lasers, swords, spears, stims, and, naturally, wrestling, because there's lots of violence in real life.
