Which MK is Ultimate? Like Genesis, PS1, ect. I forget. Anyway I'd get Paperboy. I played it a fair amount in the arcade when I was a lad.

I found a video of Cyberball. Is is a 8bit football game.

Which MK is Ultimate?

From the Gamespot article:

"Fighting fans familiar with Midway can thank the publisher for one of the genre's most recognizable catchphrases--"Finish him!"--by downloading Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Though Mortal Kombat creative director Ed Boon clearly implied that the franchise will one day appear on next-gen systems, gamers can get a head start on the spine-pulling, head-popping action of the franchise with UMK3."

Looks like just an enhanced Mortal Kombat 3
