Modders have managed to create a fully-operational Mortal Kombat 2 arcade cab into a Doom multiplayer map. The cab runs the SNES version of Probe’s brawler, so if you just want to play that instead of shooting each other stupid then you can.

Willits dropped the tidbits in an overheard press room chat. The walls have ears, Tim.

Looks like Quakecon isn’t so much about Quake any more.
We’ll be liveblogging both the main conference and the John Carmack presser this evening, kicking off at 3.30pm Texas time.
