Does guinness not care about the TG community anymore? Got my copy of the book today and i gotta say this is disappointing to say the very least. So speedrun.
Back inI was enthralled with competitive gaming. The documentary introduces us with the world of competitive retro gaming and its history. It also introduces us with an awesome antagonist named Billy Mitchell.

For those that didn't know, Billy Mitchell has been getting back in practicing shape playing a lot of Donkey Kong and tonight he hit 1 million points live on stream at the Glitch bar in Ft Lauderdale. Find all posts by prOk. IAML Supporter 7 years:

Controversial arcade game player Billy Mitchell released a statement today, responding to the recent disqualification of his records from both the Twin Galaxies leaderboards and Guinness World Records. Speaking to Old School Gamer Magazine at the Midwest Gaming Classic, Mitchell states he is working on bringing forward his own case for why his records should still stand. In a professional manner, not in a shock-jock mentality designed to create hits.
As reported by VentureBeatthe decision comes after an unsurprisingly in-depth analysis of the videos Mitchell used to secure some of his most recent high scores, and which were reportedly determined to have been played not on an original Donkey Kong cabinet, as he claimed, but on the computer emulation program MAME. The organization issued a statement todaystating that the evidence against Mitchell—which first showed up on the Donkey Kong Forumwhich has already scrubbed his records—is still under review, and that it has yet to reach a decision at this time. On the one hand, this is less seismic than it might initially seem, given that neither Mitchell, nor fellow documentary subject Steve Wiebe, hold the Donkey Kong world record any more.
