  2. A quick look around my gaming setup

    It's messy and chaotic but it's organised chaos... just about. I make some goofs naming splitter/selection/duplicator boxes but the essence is there. ;) Oh, and lots of unscripted errrmmms!

    They all arrived at my house in the past 48 hours: three great deliveries.

    I do want to immensely thank Jason Newman (rotunda) for fixing my Game Gear - the most recent of the three arrivals, today. My GG collection isn't massive but you can expect some better quality submissions than ...

  7. Just took a credibility hit

    05-22-2016 at 12:59 AM (Barthax: Nothing to see here... move along.)
    Just documenting a credibility hit I took. Simple enough mistake & it's a fair cop: one of Jared's guitar submissions was played on Guitar but was posted to a Bass track and I missed it. I even missed the post-discussion that it wasn't correct. So I loose just over 1500 Credibility Points for the ...

    I just noticed that there were two records verified on the same day for Activision Skiing for the Atari 2600 which you can see here.

  9. Twin Galaxies Entertainment Festival - More Photos

    03-31-2016 at 06:39 AM
    Here are some more photos from my trip to Banning California where I attended the Twin Galaxies Entertainment Expo. That was my second trip there in 9 months. The journey is long (20 hours from Subarctica) but well worth it. I look forward to attending the next festival / tournament.

    Thought I made an account on here years ago after watching The King of Kong, but can't remember what UID or email I would have used. Looks like I'm starting over. Oh well just have to make up for that by being a more frequent user now.

  11. Arcade Performances - Games NOT Requiring Dip Switches To Be Shown

    12-31-2015 at 01:47 PM
    Hello everyone!

    I'm going to preface this with one simple statement - I'm lazy and am not good at confrontations. What does that mean? I'll need someone at my local arcade to genuinely offer to help me show dip switch settings. I will NOT push and push until they cave in. Where does that ...

  12. Ken Towne's World Record for Star Wars Trilogy Arcade

    12-14-2015 at 04:23 PM
    Ken Towne broke the World Record for Star Wars Trilogy Arcade in 2003, and since my girlfriend works at an arcade and gets me a free wristband when I go there I have been working to improve my score on the game. It's not as bright as it could be, which makes some enemies difficult to see, but other ...

    Hey everyone!

    On my inaugural blog I'd like to address something I have had different viewpoints on since I joined TG. That was only a month ago but as I record/submit more and more record attempts, it's apparent that I need to voice this to make sure I'm thinking about this the right way. ...

    Every once in a while, a relationship can get stale. Fair enough.

    To fix this, we tend to add-on, to spice up.

    What’s clear about a situation such as described, is to spice things up. I’m okay with said notion, but this is when things can either go into a ...
