I just want to recognize another Billy Mitchell achievement. He is now the first video game player to follow through with his threats to get a lawyer and sue somebody.

He is my kind of villain. He knows how to trigger everyone!

I had a longer post, but TG ate it.

    Well he got the lawyer and a demand letter with threat to sue. Considering several of his witnesses including Walter signed provable falsehoods though I doubt they’ll be stupid enough to go to court with perjury

    Billy sued Big TV over the abuse of his likeness. So he still gets the claim of first gamer able to afford a lawyer.

    What percentage of Billy’s lawsuits were thrown out and even mocked by judges?

    100% you say well I guess it can’t get worse

    Yeah, it seems incomprehensible that we're going to see Billy Mitchell, Walter Day, Todd Rogers, Morningdove Mahoney, Robert Childs and other notables in a court proceeding under oath. I'm stumped that they're all going to go along with it. What story will Walter claim is true - his multiple TG posts from 2010 that the 1,047,200 score was officially accepted and authorized by TG to be entered into Guinness, or his evidence package statement that there was no submission? What's going to happen to Todd when he has to explain his interview with Roy Shildt at IVGHOF where he claimed the Boomer event was not planned or arranged in advance and that he just called up Mitchell out of the blue and challenged him to dual gameplay of Donkey Kong blindfolded at Boomers before Todd challenged him to "show me what you got" on DK? Or what about Morningdove who was dashing for cover as Robert Childs filmed his "moments after Billy Mitchell's Donkey Kong record" video? And then there's Robert Childs, who wanted to make a satirical video at Boomers but failed to make any mention of this affection for satire for the last eight years?

    Carlos confession was interesting. I believe he was led to believe that it wouldn’t be public. It’s tough when someone lies to know when they lied but considering he recanted the moment it went public, that action shows that going public shocked him which is why I believe his claim there. It makes you wonder how many witnesses were intimidated and given false assurances of anonymity. Also remember no notary. Their star witness, the first highlighted testimony immediately recanted — how many more will recant if it goes to court where lying is way more serious.

    Anyway 9 days to go. At least we have a timeline now. I think we all know no way GUIness or Jace are impressed by this nonsense so I don’t see either giving into the demands
