Mat Mania Record Run Feature

We've been a little quiet on the "On this Day" records this week, but that's because we had a big ol' chat with @LUMBO about his recent max-out on Mat Mania. This was a hell of run, captured at the Galloping Ghost Arcade on June 2, and Lombardi is the first to capture a max-out in this game in recorded history.

We went for the full story on what led up to the run, the prep that went into it, and how it ultimately came together. Big thanks to LUMBO for sharing with us. Hope y'all enjoy this story.

If you want some more retro goodness, definitely check out the collab we did with Phil Day on the last 10 years of Galaga, the Gala-Gala, and what he believes modern retro competition needs. There's also the piece we did on some hands-on time with My Arcade's Retro Champ at E3 2019. Awesome little bit of tech that plays original NES and Famicom carts just like a Switch (mobile on rechargeable batteries or plug-and-play through HDMI). More to come! Stay tuned!
