Game over to 2014 and welcome 2015 to endless gaming possibilities! Or something like that… I hope everyone had a great 2014 Holiday season and Happy New Year to you! In my house hold we played Galaga as our “Game of the night”… It is actually my neighbor’s favorite game and for a guy that doesn’t ever play it much (once or twice a year) he’s pretty damn good at it… He won with the high score of the night of 135,000. I couldn’t even come close with my 68,000 or so score… it was a lot of fun… Below his him schooling me on getting a perfect bonus stage 40 for 40!
A Gamer that goes by “TC” put up MAME Arcade Galaga High Score of 176,320 not bad for a “noob” that hasn’t played the game in over 25 years. The score was witnessed by me (see video above) and at my new MAME Cocktail arcade cab (see build here). The score is far from a World Record (world record is currently being held by Andrew Laidlaw, a great guy btw) but stage 20 for a person that hasn’t played this game in over 25 years? I think it is pretty impressive stuff. It just makes me think of all the other players out there in the world that don’t go for World Records. Maybe they still have it in them? Maybe they could take down some of the WRs that are out there if they put some time into it? I guess I will have to hit up that person one at at time.
