I watched the live feed around the 1st hour and it was awesome. Ed was on and talking to everyone that came into the chat room. It felt like I was right there in his living room. Who would of known that a Thunderstorm would be the “kill screen” 56.50 hours later. Still with Mother Nature against him. Record Setters claimed Ed’s action as the “Longest Attempt At A World Record Cut Short By An Act Of Nature”
Pretty awesome stuff in my book. Great stuff and Congratulations to Ed Heemskerk on the Qbert World Record.
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.
