Live Text: Steve Wiebe Attempts to Re-Claim Donkey Kong World Record

Posted by Zach Kaplan

It's on!

Today at 3:30 PM CST, we'll be bringing you live text updates below of Steve Wiebe's Donkey conquest to take back the title from Dr. Hank Chien. We'll be live at Chicago, IL's Logan Hardware bringing you to-the-second updates on the schoolteacher's climbing score. Will he reach a kill screen? Will he top Dr. Chien's 1,068,000 points? Will Billy Mitchell send an ambassador with a mysterious tape? Read below to find out, and no need to refresh as the page will update itself.

Then on Sunday we'll be interviewing Wiebe to discuss, among other things, the record attempt and the class that will pre-empt it, DK101, where Steve will pass on some of his secrets to up-and-coming players. If you can't wait for that, you can always take a look at our previous Wiebe interview.

Update: Our interview with Steve Wiebe has been pushed back to later in the week.

You can't even say "Its on like..."? That's just stoopid.

Wow what an awesome read, I didn't get to see it live but it was fun to see the score go up, dissapointed he didn't break the record though, hopefully he does it in the next two attempts & we find out tomorrow

Just starting to follow Steve, just watched the show on when he went to fun spot and Billy cowardly never showed then submitted his score on VHS...rofl...kinda fishy that Billy was so paranoid about cheaters makes you wonder about him. Glad to see Steve did BEAT HIM!!! Think Billy would have gotten a mil without getting pointers from STEVE or with a legite
