Steve Wiebe Crowned King of Kong Once Again
Posted by Damien McFerran
Although it's Donkey Kong Jr. this time
Celebrity gamer and star of the excellent King of Kong Steve Wiebe has reclaimed the world record for Nintendo's Donkey Kong Jr. coin-op after briefly relinquishing the title to Mark Kiel, who had set the previous high score at a whopping 1,147,800.
Wiebe - who became famous after his battle with gaming legend Billy Mitchell was immortalized in Seth Gordan's aforementioned 2007 documentary film - has set a new record of 1,190,400.
In other words: he's bloody good at Donkey Kong games.
If you haven't seen King of Kong yet then you deserve a sharp cuff around the back of the head.
