    MK2 game over screen??

    So I was playing MK2 for PS3 today, when I noticed after letting the continue timer tick down to zero, Goro's Lair appeared on the screen and showed "GAME OVER?" and a roman numeral III....has anyone else seen this??? I'm sure most of you have, but this is a first for me.

    It's a rare Game Over screen. MK1 had one as well, which scrolled down to The Pit bottom.

    Goro's Lair, really? As much as I've played MK2, I can't say I've ever seen that. I don't suppose you nabbed a screen shot?

    Wastelands is the background for the NORMAL MKII game over screen, IIRC

    The III? screen was one of those once-every-hundred-or-so-plays things. It was designed to pretty much get the reaction you had, and get the players to pump more quarters in the arcade to prove that it was real and they saw it.

    Also that video linked to other MK videos and it just reminded me how I could listen to the MK1 soundtrack for DAYS. Especially the "GAME OVER" music. Most epic "your ass is dead, homie" music EVER.

    Cool, thanks for sharing those. I can't believe I've never seen that before. I know I've seen the Pit scroll from MK1 multiple times, but I also know I've played MK2 a bit more than MK1.
