    Billy Mitchell is a douche.

    Go Steve go!!!

    by Gabba-UK

    why do I feel like I'm watching Flynn get 999,999?

  • June 2, 2009, 10:59 a.m. CST

    I thought he just recently re-broke the record?

    by jimmy_009

    Like within the last two months or so. Anyway GO MAN GO!

    Wish Nintendo would release a Donkey Kong II.

    by Royston Lodge

    Same gameplay as the original, but with SLIGHTLY better sprites and WAY MORE levels.<p> The different levels is what makes that game fun.<p> I just started playing around with MAME, and it's amazing how addicting many of the old games are.<p> Fuck, I suck at Contra.

    He better beat that other

    Donkey is ok...

    by bobbofatz

    But Metroid is where its at. And I could be king of NES Metroid. I love this game. Go Steve. Billy is a douchette!

    Last Man

    by HEADGEEK

    it'd be stunning if he somehow managed to break the record with only one man to go.

  • June 2, 2009, 11:11 a.m. CST

    Perhaps he should find something else to be good at

    by mercuryx23

    I'll give him credit for being the best at a 27 year old video game. But really, is being better than Billy Mitchell worth all this commotion?

  • June 2, 2009, 11:14 a.m. CST

    Metroid's best incarnation...

    by Royston Lodge

    ...is the Gameboy Advance version. I enjoyed that game way more than the original Metroid.

  • June 2, 2009, 11:19 a.m. CST

    Understood, Harry

    by mercuryx23

    And he has more than proven that he is damned good at it. But there are things in life that you kind of have to say, well, I've been doing this for a long long time and I can only get a little better. Ultimately, he has nothing to prove (at least to himself). He needs to find some peace with the whole thing and be great at something else.

  • June 2, 2009, 11:21 a.m. CST

    halfway to the record

    Why Star Wars will always be the BEST Sci Fi.....

    by Han Cholo

    http://tinyurl.com/mfwyt9 <p> This is why Star Wars, no matter what, will always be the best sci-fi ever, even if the movies sucked, the potential for awesomeness will always be there...

    Wow, Gm gone, economy shitty, Bread and Circuses bitches.

    by EvilWizardGlick

    This topic sums up why the US is tanking. Donkey Kong gets a TB while the nations slowly dies.

    If he gets it.. this will be one for the ages..

    What's Up With That Atari Movie Harry?

    by Autodidact

    Isn't DiCaprio supposed to be in it? I think a movie about Atari in the seventies would be fascinating given an insightful screenplay.

    THis is outstanding!!

    by Alkeoholic77

    no way those assholes can contest his record now!

  • June 2, 2009, 11:29 a.m. CST

    Christ... .the jacks

    by Autodidact

    When I reloaded he was on the jacks level. God I hated that level as a kid. You could see some major tension ease off Steve's face when he cleared it.

    This guys is possibly the best in the world at one thing - Donkey Kong. He has an arch-villian of a rival that tries at every turn to spoil his victories, AND he's probably finally getting paid to play video games! He should never, never,never give up as long as those three things remain constant. Just my opinion. <br> <br> Harry - I know he's on his last dude, but is it possible for him to earn another guy is in DK - is that IT?

  • June 2, 2009, 11:35 a.m. CST

    by Talkbacker with no name

    This is fucking cool news! Go WIEBE!

  • June 2, 2009, 11:37 a.m. CST

    What is the highest score at the moment, Harry?

    by Talkbacker with no name

    And is Billy the current holder?

  • June 2, 2009, 11:38 a.m. CST

    What I wanna know is..

    by son_of_ebert

    If he dies will he try it again?

    by HEADGEEK

    Watching either of these guys play is like magic. More people have walked on the moon than have scored the points Steve is at right now. Now, admittedly I'd rather walk on the moon.

  • June 2, 2009, 11:43 a.m. CST

    Is this information (Wikipedia) still up to date?

    by pinkfloyd2000

    The highest recorded score was set by Billy Mitchell on June 26, 2007 when he achieved 1,050,200 points. He has been challenged many times by Steve Wiebe, who holds the 2nd best record with 1,049,100 points, accomplished March 23, 2007.

  • June 2, 2009, 11:44 a.m. CST

    by BMacSmith

    that guy is not right in the head.

  • June 2, 2009, 11:47 a.m. CST

    What about scoring the points ON the moon..

    by son_of_ebert

    Would that then make it lunar record rather than a world record?

    "Donkey Kong is generally considered the hardest video game ever

    by Screwhead

    Thinking back to my '80s arcade-dwelling days, I believe it was widely agreed that DEFENDER (or its sequel, STARGATE) was supposed to be the toughest of all. Wikipedia seems to back me up on this. "It ultimately gained many fans and remained popular throughout the 1980s. Defender has been described as 'quite possibly, the hardest significant game there is'.[1]" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defender_(video_game)

    Lives

    by pinkfloyd2000

    I haven't seen him lose a life yet. But that's not the issue; this is a game of a finite nature. That's the obstacle.

    I understand there is this good vs evil thing going on. That was very evident in King Of Kong.

There is more in life than just that especially with the skills that that guy has.

    I can't view the video at work, so I wanted to say thanks to all of you keeping this updated.

  • June 2, 2009, 1:17 p.m. CST

    Here be da facts

    by pinkfloyd2000

    The game is divided into four different one-screen stages. Each represents 25 meters of the structure Donkey Kong has climbed, one stage being 25 meters higher than the previous. The final screen occurs at 100 m. Later ports of the game omit or change the sequence of the screens; the original arcade version includes: * Screen 1 (25 m) – Jumpman must scale a seven-story construction site made of crooked girders and ladders while jumping over or hammering barrels and oil barrels tossed by Donkey Kong. The hero must also avoid flaming balls, which generate when an oil barrel collides with an oil drum. Players routinely call this screen "Barrels."[10] * Screen 2 (50 m) – Jumpman must climb a five-story structure of conveyor belts, each of which transports pans of cement. The fireballs also make another appearance. This screen is sometimes referred to as the "Factory" or "Pie Factory" due to the resemblance of the cement pans to pies.[10] * Screen 3 (75 m) – Jumpman rides up and down elevators while avoiding fireballs and bouncing objects, presumably spring-weights. The bouncing weights (the hero's greatest danger in this screen) emerge on the top level and drop near the rightmost elevator. The screen's common name is "Elevators."[10] * Screen 4 (100 m) – Jumpman must remove the eight rivets which support Donkey Kong. The fireballs remain the primary obstacle. Removing the final rivet causes Donkey Kong to fall and the hero to be reunited with the Lady. This is the final screen of each level. Players refer to this screen as "Rivets."[10] These screens combine to form levels, which become progressively harder. For example, Donkey Kong begins to hurl barrels more rapidly and sometimes diagonally, and fireballs get quicker. The victory music alternates between levels 1 and 2. The 22nd level is unofficially known as the kill screen, due to an error in the game's programming that kills Jumpman after a few seconds, effectively ending the game.

    by pinkfloyd2000

    Steve Wiebe is continuing to pursue his previously held title as the holder of the highest score in Donkey Kong. Recently, Wiebe has made four well-publicized attempts at regaining the Donkey Kong title. They are: On August 19, 2007, at the Alamo Draft House in Austin, TX, Steve scored 695,500 points while Twin Galaxies Founder Walter Day served as the official referee. [7] On March 6, 2008, in Las Vegas, Steve Wiebe played in front of a fluctuating crowd of 1,900 party attendees in the TAO Nightclub in the Venetian Casino during Microsoft's MIX08 event. During that attempt, Steve Wiebe achieved two scores: first scoring 929,800 points and reaching the "Kill Screen" and then 579,300 points on the second try. According to Twin Galaxies records, this is the sixth time someone had reached the "Kill Screen" during a public gaming performance (3 times by Billy Mitchell and 3 times by Steve Wiebe). Again, Steve performed under the supervision of Twin Galaxies Founder Walter Day, who noted: "Possibly the biggest challenges Steve had to overcome were the loud nightclub music, the chaotic environment and the late hours." [8] On July 17, 2008, Steve Wiebe made his third attempt to break the Donkey Kong high score at the Twiistup 4 event in Santa Monica, but was unsuccessful on two consecutive attempts, scoring 340,500 and 466,100 points.[9] In October 2008, at the 2008 E for All Expo, he scored 1,000,200 in front of a large crowd. This is only the third time a 1 million point score has been achieved in public. On April 24, 2009, Steve took command of the Donkey Kong Jr. title, eclipsing both Mitchell and previous record holder Icarus Hall with a score of 1,139,800 points. [10] On June 02, 2009, Steve reached a score of 923,400 points at E3 2009 during his first attempt that day. On his second attempt, he reached 653,700. These attempts ware broadcast online via G4TV.

    by daggor

    I'd like to see him play, but have no idea if he plans on trying again. It would be great if there was some sort of technology that could be used to let viewers know if and when he was coming back. Hmm. Maybe at E3, someone could devise some sort of device... or internet system... for dispensing simple text messages.

    Steve's Game just went dead. Was about 100,000 points up and it went dead. Everyone's wondering if Billy Mitchell sabotaged it. I can't believe the game failed at E3. Of all the places you'd expect them to have everything up and running on the technical side. A sign of the apocalypse? Perhaps not, but certainly a commentary on nature's indifference to us...<br /> <br /> Muhahahahahahahahahaahahaha!!!!! I was hoping Steve would finally take Billy's record. Billy Mitchell seems like an ass.

    Mitchell is an ass

    by Rand92

    The guy is a first class prick. Do you think there is anyway that jackass would ever have the balls to go for the record on live tv? Not a chance. Steve is a real nice guy, good player, and more than deserves to beat out Mitchell who really seems to be good for nothing other than being a total ass.

    by gruntybear

    Third only to Mitchell's absolute mastery of all things douchebag-esque and his eager henchman's "Wanna see a Donkey Kong killscreen?" toadiness, the best scene in all of "King of Kong" was Wiebe's kid's bathroom meltdown well into Wiebe home run at the top score.

    He beats the 1982 record, that stood for over 20 years like nothing now. Consider that only two human beings on Earth have ever been seen getting passed 800,000 on Donkey Kong.

  • June 2, 2009, 8:32 p.m. CST

    D.Vader: No, he didn't get enough points on earlier levels

    by chrth

    You're essentially fighting two factors: plain old death, and running out of time (which is the Kill Screen). To avoid the latter, you have to get as many points as possible on the prior screens, but if you don't ... well, you see what happens

    Adds an interesting twist to the thing, though. Never saw King of Kong so I had no idea about these things. <p> Will he just try again tomorrow?

  • June 2, 2009, 8:48 p.m. CST

    Xevious!...forgot all about that one...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...Xevious was brutal. An ice cream shop down at the beach had that one for a summer...blew quite a few shiny quarters but didn't get very far with it. Hard to believe, but those shaded realistically rotating metal things were the best graphics we had seen at the time.

    by D.Vader

    Where you and a second player played as masked burglars in a side-scrolling game, where you went through a cut-away building, going through all the stories, including the roof, where you could repel to the next building over, all the while evading the police? <p> I can't remember the name! But I remember that the graphics were like a crude 3d rendering. The bodies bounced up and down on legless feet, and there were no arms, just floating hands... Any ideas guys?

I had an event to go to and couldn't stay home to see this live, but y'alls wonderful blow by blow here was not as thrilling, but was a taste of it. <BR><BR>This record that Weibe is chasing is near impossible to do. There's a finite number of points that can be scored prior to the kill screen - but one day I hope to see Weibe play a PERFECT GAME. Nailing every point he possibly could. Sometimes it just depends on the machine, how many barrels it sends at you. How quickly you get through it and so on. <BR><BR>this was a fantastic talkback. I'm glad I posted this story!

    I knew Billy Mitchell

    by LegendaryPinkDot

    I grew up in Hollywood, Florida (I am 36 years old)..At 9 years old, I won the State championship for Vanguard, and I took Billy Mitchell to school at Gorf...If anyone is familiar with 80's South Florida, this was at the Old Grand Prix Go-Kart Arcade... also, for the record, Billy is not as bad as he is portrayed in the film. Just clever editing...He is just sure of himself...Originally, the fikmakers were to follow Abner, the Mrs. Pacman Champion, but this story crept up and took hold...And I hate his Wing Sauce...Rickey's always smells bad when you go in there

    Only game I was ever good at was Galaga

    by Dranem

    I have the high score at the local laundromat. Only reason is theres a bug where you can get the enemies to stop shooting at you if you avoid them for about 10 minutes. After that its just a matter of dodging the falling enemies and destroying the rest with dual lasers!

    About Galaga

    by LegendaryPinkDot

    Once I learned that the aliens always go where you are, not where your going, It's simple to create a pattern..I got to level 128 on 1 man using the joystick "Tap" technique..That reminds me... Anyone remember using pencils to run for Track & Field??

  • June 3, 2009, 7:39 a.m. CST

    Bonanza Bros was easy to figure out

    by FuriousStyles

    because I have such vivid memories of seeing screenshots of it when I was young - I thought of it instantly from your description. Funny thing is after all the years I've never even played it - and the Genesis port is available on Wii Virtual Console I think..... Oh - and go Steve Weibe. Half of NSW has his back - I often leave the doco on in the background in the studio in Sydney, so so many of my mates have seen it and support him forever.
