I'm delighted about this. I found the pile-on to be rather unsavoury. Clearly, Billy Mitchell is a superb Pac-Man player and a charismatic fragile egomaniac. I've been following him on Twitter for a while and sending goodwill. I love an underdog, especially one who used to be an absolute prick.

BUMP.

Billy Mitchell scored 1m (exactly) in public on a genuine Donkey Kong board yesterday: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/290847896

Tipster's video about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JXrUzZT67Y

That's so great.

They have to make a movie now and get Martin Starr to play Billy.

Yes. As someone wrote in a comment on the Tipster video, "Congrats Billy you finally got a legit 1 million score I'm happy for you. Doesn't change a single thing. Actually makes me more disappointed you cheated in the first place now."

Isn't the difference that there have been some point gathering techniques discovered since the mid 00s  that makes it a lot easier to get over a million than when Wiebe got it? If he utilised that then his 1 million is much less of an achievement than his tape would have been.

He claims to have done it before Donkey Kong was ever released in the arcades (see end of the twitch video).

"Hang around for as long as you can on each level to score extra points"; he must have kicked himself when he realised.

I hope he's the first guy to get 2m and all the haters watch it on their deathbed. I hope that's not unreasonable.

Thanks for that.

And youtuber Apollo Legend's take. It's pretty funny, he dons a Billy Mitchell disguise to confront him.

Mitchell's evidence package is wild. The fake DK Jnr board swap video was satire and/or for promotional purposes only, the fake world record video was forged to look like it was done on MAME by persons unknown. And the Carlos Pineiro situation is bizarre. Why would he sign that witness statement? Mad.

Can't wait for King of Kong 2.

What was it he done exactly?


This latest Billy Mitchell video does seem like he has way too much of a grudge to bear with the guy. Either that or he should've waited until he had a better interview with Dwayne Richard, or edited the one he had where Richard is wayyyy too emotional in the call and sounds like he's kind of lost track of himself (were the personal jabs needed at all, like?), or gathered a few more sources

It has a lot to do with what his buddy done... There's this bloke called Ryan White, known as Goose, who does GoldenEye speedrunning: it recently emerged (shock horror) that he's a nasty little alt right shite who thinks that black people are genetically inferior, believes in a white ethnostate, wants to know when we can talk about "the Jewish question," all that kind of stuff. There's a speedrunning event called Games Done Quick that raises money for charity, and when this stuff came out they banned Goose from participating in the event. Apollo Legend (who had been working with Goose on establishing their own speedrunning event) came out to bat for Goose in a YouTube video, which by the looks of things has now been deleted. In the video Apollo obfuscated and minimised what Goose had said, and stated that GDQ were treating Goose unfairly by banning him. Apollo was subsequently called out for this.

Yeah Dwayne Richard doesn't come off well, bringing up Mitchell's family affairs. He was behind that 'Perfect Fraudman' doc.
Good thread on it over here.

Quote from: David Race(fastest perfect pacman record holder)
Dwayne appeared upset over my honest critique of his film. In my critique I ended by saying, "There is a lot that I can agree with you on, but after all is said and done, the documentary appears to be more of a polemical, personal diatribe than an impartial and serious work.
I know you may not welcome some of these criticisms, but this is my honest assessment."

David Alpiger (who abbreviates Crystal Castles to 'Crystal' and wears a weight lifting glove) argues that Bill Bastable's perfect score isn't valid as he paused the game for breaks with dip switches.
Serious stuff this pac man business.
