    Guinness reinstates Billy Mitchell’s Donkey Kong, Pac-Man records [Updated]

    Guinness World Records has reinstated a number of classic video game world records held by Billy Mitchell.

    The move comes just over two years after Mitchell's records were expunged following an investigation by Twin Galaxies International Scoreboard, which partners with Guinness to adjudicate video game records.

    That investigation found that recordings of some of Mitchell's record performances on Donkey Kong were not achieved on legitimate arcade hardware, based on extensive video analysis that showed signs of emulator use. Twin Galaxies has not changed its position on Mitchell's records, resulting in a split between the two record-tracking organizations.

    Guinness now once again recognizes Mitchell as the first player to achieve a perfect Pac-Man score of 3,333,360 points in 1999 and the first player to reach 1 million points in Donkey Kong in 2005.

    This is a different Billy Mitchell than the WWI aviator, right?

    • "I mean, not really. I don’t think “console girth” is a very important metric to many people, and for some, the PS5, could be the size of a couch and as long as it had Horizon Forbidden West on it with instant SSD load times, they would still buy it."

              Understatement. I took today off just so I could play it for 3.5 straight days.

                • TLoU II is amazing graphics-wise

                  Just got a couple hours into the story and I’m ready to murder some bitches

                  i have some “cheese” issues I’ll put in spoiler tags, but I love the Fast and Furious franchise, so cheese isn’t an issue...without further ado....major early game spoilers below

                  SPOILERso I’m still very early, but I thought how they handled killing Joel and then leaving Ellie and Tommy alive was classic plot porn material, there’s no way that it was a good idea. Ellie found them super easily and she’s clearly motivated...I get why they did it like that, but I think it would have been better if Joel had been left for dead and she found him and then he passed


                  EasyDisease what’s your Xbox gamer tag? I don’t play a lot of Xbox, but I just got it going on my oculus machine and I got AoE 2 so I may be playing on there some

                  • Playing “Trover Saves the Universe” on the Quest, from the Rick and Morty creator.

                    Even when games are funny they’re usually not that funny to me (feel the same about games with a “great story” or “great writing”) but this one keeps making me laugh out loud. It’s dumb Rick and Morty style humor but it keeps getting me.

                    PS - I think I’m like top in the world at Pro Putt. Just demolishing these fools. I’m a god awful putter in real life. Will be interesting to see if I’m closer to below average next time out.

                          Co-creator I guess. The other guy, Justin Roiland.

                          Will PM you my Quest username (and probably anyone else who wants it, just prefer to PM it).

                          Yeah, the Quest is great. I’d love something more powerful but I don’t have a gaming PC and so I was looking at a hefty investment to get anything else.

                          There are rumors about a new Quest model around the end of the year. I might have to upgrade. Although a PS5 or Xbox probably makes more sense when I already have a Quest.
