King of Kong is my King

I recently watched the documentary King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, about two men vying for the world record at the classic arcade game Donkey Kong. It was a great movie, and having seen it, I got in the mood for a little Kong. Maybe with a little practice, I can shatter the record! If you want more than just level 1, go here. Oh, and Space Bar jumps.

Nice! I was impressed that I could actually pass this first level and I only died twice, I think.

I really want to see this but the DVD costs so much and last time I took a look in my wallet I saw Killer Moth fly out.

We recently had this come through town playing at a local university's cinema and I missed it. Argh!!!

I still haven't seen the movie, but another person working on a videogame documentary feel like there were a lot of misleading points in the film's plot.

i think most of those points are actually decipherable from the movie, the one exception being (and I read this on wikipedia as well) that Wiebe's disqualified score was actually breaking his own record, so the record left intact was his own.

This point should have been explained, but it would obviously take away some of the drama.
