Re: Billy Mitchell high scores wiped

Billy's been sending his hot sauce to various Youtubers who have been posting news about him... clever! Good opportunity, so he takes it. But it does go in stark contrast to when he has maintained that he still has yet to see King Of Kong. I'm starting to get the feeling he is a bit of a pathologica...

Re: Billy Mitchell high scores wiped

Dug the King of Kong DVD out again, haven't watched it for a while. Hahaha me too! I had to look for "clues" throughout, and in retrospect indeed Billy is a complete narcissist who just cannot take being second at anything. Look how he "cheats" hiding his competitors sauces, listen to when the Q-Be...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 180

Wow, great edition, loads of stuff I'm interested in, Powerdrift, Renegade III, C64 games system, Ken Williams interview.. just started reading, first thing I started reading was the Powerdrift conversion capers and the Amiga port always seems to get a bad rap but I personally think they did a great...

Re: games where the original was best

Outrun is definitely better than Turbo or Outrunners, and the 8/16 bit console/handheld variants....but Outrun 2 is just in a league of its own in the series (even though i still enjoy and love the original). Outrun 2/Coast to Coast 2006 on Xbox, PSP and PS2 are immense, and I can't believe I only ...

Re: Movies that never got games

I reckon The Lawnmower Man would be a great one to make on VR. It came out on PC and was horrid, but in VR could be more in tune with the movie.. could be a good one if done properly!

Re: games where the original was best

I would say Robocop, Outrun, Double Dragon, Tetris and Lemmings.

Re: What are you currently playing?

I got Pacman Championship Edition 2 for a few bucks on Steam, usually cant go wrong with Pacman, but I hated it! It was like playing Pacman on bad drugs, just really really didn't like it' at all. Whereas the first Championship Edition I didn't mind, I think for me the second strays off course from...

Re: Billy Mitchell high scores wiped

Yep, King of Kong 2 is going to be a very interesting film when it comes out. I'm a bit gutted in so far as I really respected him for doing the first perfect game on Pac-Man. That is so stupidly hard to do. He did it 99 and when Jon Studley did it a year or two ago he was the 8th person ever. That...

Re: Billy Mitchell high scores wiped

Ive watched a couple of documentaries about him now, 'The King of Con' and 'The Perfect Fraudman' as well as seen his interviews on a couple of shows he did this year, and it is clearly evident that those that said he was portrayed in a bad light on King of Kong were quite wrong : he is much more de...

Re: Mini Sega Megadrive anyone?!

I've not been interested in any of the mini iterations, I reckon everything eventually will get a go, we'll probably see N64 mini, PS1 mini, etc. I think the only thing that might possibly interest me in this line would be an Amiga mini, with games fully configured already, no guru meditations to wo...

It's hard separating my own favourites from what is objectively the best of a genre. Then again, i'm not going to suggest games i don't like even if they are considered the best by most!

Re: Billy Mitchell high scores wiped

But surely at some stage in all these years he must have 'completed' the game on a cab in front of a crowd or with credible witnesses? Obv playing on MAME isn't quite the same as original hardware, but can't be THAT much easier? apparently he did, once, he got to the kill screen in front of a live ...

Re: Billy Mitchell high scores wiped

The crazy thing is, he is undoubtedly a genius, and he beat pacman and DK in the same year or thereabouts when they came out, which is just staggering. There never was any need for any funny business.. so its just sad really.

Re: Billy Mitchell high scores wiped

that's pretty shocking to me.. I did actually like to think Billy Mitchell was a decent guy underneath his 'persona' but if this is true then for him to let Wiebe get dragged through the mud like that is despicable.

Now they just need to bring out King Of Kong 2.0 with all the latest updates!
