Billy Mitchell Reclaims Donkey Kong Crown

Quote
by Dan Ryckert on August 08, 2010 at 10:30 AM

After a back-and-forth with his King of Kong rival Steve Wiebe and newcomer Hank Chien, everyone's favorite hot sauce-shilling, USA tie-wearing, world class a-hole  arcade champion is back on top of the Donkey Kong leaderboards. At Boomers-Grand Prix Arcade in Florida, he surpassed Chien's 1,061,700 score to set the new mark at 1,062,800.

In typically ****ish confident fashion, Mitchell quit the game immediately after passing Chien's score. When asked about it, he responded "Some say I'm being cocky. Some say I'm being lazy. I say I'm being Billy Mitchell."

During the same event, Mitchell also set a new Donkey Kong, Jr. world record with his score of 1,270,900.

This guy is such a ****sucker.

Yeah, but I like how he rolls. 

He beats the score and then just stops. 

Classic Billy.

What a dick. I hope that guy is killed by a huge rolling barrel, a sentient fireball, or an enormous mallet coming down on his head. Being mauled by a giant ape would be acceptable as well.

I don't care who you are, that's funny right there.  Unless you know someone who was killed in one of those ways probably.

You know, gang, the news about Billy Mitchell having all of his high scores stripped from the record books because he cheated isn't gonna post itself

I read all about this last week but didn't realize there was a thread here. Banned for life no less! I doubt anyone is shedding any tears for this guy though.

Didn't he set the records for Pac-Man and Donkey Kong back in the 80s? If so, he couldn't have used MAME to set those scores, its first release was in 97

If I remember the movie correctly, every time someone challenged/beat his scores he would then get an even higher score and regain or retain his spot at number one.
