on a Sega Genesis before? No, never. Never, never. I don’t think I’ve even seen them before. I’ve never played this on a Sega Genesis. I haven’t played
Sega Genesis in general, no. (Finebros) For this, you’ll
be playing in a three-round eight-person tournament
against other reactors. Oh my goodness. I need to win. I need to prove this to myself
that Mortal Kombat is my game. I’m always the one that comes in last, so I’m probably getting
my ass kicked right now. Eight-person tournament? Damn, okay. I need
to advance to the finals. I will win. I will succeed. I will be champion. ♪ (action music) ♪ (Seth) I don’t even know what this is. I’ve never seen this before. (Labib) Yeah, I’m just gonna button-smash and just hope for the best. My heart’s beating pretty fast,

one minute to look over your character’s special moves. (Sam) I’m most excited
about Flying Thunder God. You don’t have that over there. (Chelsea) I got a Deep Freeze. He’s got more things
than me. Wait a second. (Sam) I can do a Flying Thunder God. (Chelsea) This isn’t fair. (Finebros) Okay,

I don’t know what to expect. I feel like I’m gonna get
freaked out by the controls. I want the girl. There has to be one girl. She probably has the biggest boobs

and Flying Punch. (Jeordy) Deep Freeze, which is down– (Morgan) Deep Freeze?
