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.
