Title should be changed stripped of ALL records.

First time I watched King of Kong I felt really bad for Steve as it seemed his record was so short lived. And to see that it was from cheating. Dang.

So I guess that movie persona depicted of the villian was a little more accurate than just a movie thing.

Well he may as well get a haircut and retire the tie it's game over man.

if he's gonna start a podcast now to claim he did no wrong and think he is still valued member in the hobby.

Quoted from viper001:

Honestly I don't care about competitive arcade records

I was on town swim team as a kid received some twelve records which stood for many years. I was always proud to know I accomplished that. When one of my last records was broken, I wrote a quick little letter to the guy that beat it congratulating him for that achievement. Records are meant to be broken, it's OK really.

Billy and Walter seemed to be great faces for being the embasidores of classic arcade gaming for sure. Not so much anymore, imo

if the guy that broke my swimming record was wearing flippers or had his Dad handling the stopwatch. I'd be pissed off.

Yeah Steve Wiebe got screwed but good by those guys.

If he cheats at video game scores, I wouldn't trust his hot sauce. He might just be buddies with the health inspector.

Just joking, I wish I would have remembered he sold hot sauce around Christmas when my son wanted some different kinds in his stocking.

I'd like to see an interview with Steve, and or Walter. Todd not so much.

Quoted from hoby1:

This guy in no way harmed anyone's life and screwed people out of a few $$$$$$$.

I am not so sure about that, Steve may say otherwise.

I really need to check out KLOV, I always admired the extreme players. Saw a video on missile command high score attempt, come on 40+ hours on a game I can't remember ever playing longer than 15 mins.

Watched ArcadeAnimal on twitch play ICB for some 6+ hours only stopping when he had to go on family trip or something. Scoring some 300k on a game with four digit scoring, draining 17 extra balls to boot.

Pinball kind of doesn't have that, which I like.
It still has super good players but outlanes and plumb bob still rule the day.

Is that a nice podcast?

I want a podcaster with a Sam Kinison personality to interview him.

If you haven't watched King of Kong do so.

Then watch the last six months of videos about what the fuss is.

It's pretty much GAME OVER so you get to a point where you have a choice. ie Kevin Kulek

Sure he is a good player but definitely not the greatest noncheater of the century.

Looks like he is still going to deny deny deny.

Quoted from s1500:

Yes, it's a great podcast.

You may have missed what I was going for.
