GWR: Gamer's Edition Sucks!

Does guinness not care about the TG community anymore? Got my copy of the 2019 book today and i gotta say this is disappointing to say the very least. Save for a sporadic reference to robbie lakeman and the todd rogers/billy mitchell fiasco, i couldn't find any references to TG or any of it's new records. So speedrun.com gets 10 pages of their scores listed but TG doesn't get jack s**t?! Guinness should fire their editors because this is clear bias. The 2016 book was the best, i dunno what happened after that. When i read this book i want to know about old school arcade records, i couldn't give a flying f**k about Stampy Cat.

    Lol, that's one of the things I wanted most, ha, I only came to TG initially to get the "Guinness Record" on Burgertime, TG itself was the ends to the means.

    Very glad I stuck around, but still shaking my head over that one.

    :P

    My NBA 2K17 record made it from TG, several Twin Galaxies records made it if I'm not wrong. It's certainly not what it used to be but there's references here and there.

    Congrats, could you tell me which page? :) Which brings me back to the 2016 book where there was a clear alphabetical listing of TG'S latest records. Why did they change that? You're telling me guinness can't put a couple more pages in there for that?! That's a complete load...

    Hey Kirk,


    This post by the owner of Twin Galaxies may be of interest to you. I don't know what the status for the book is, but according to David Hawksett, there's been some progress, so I guess we'll all have to stay tuned: https://www.twingalaxies.com/jace-ha...nd-other-items

    Yeah TG needs to start making their own record books again, because i know and we all know that there are many more video game records that people are completely ignorant of. And for a book that is completely gaming records made by guinness, that's just not good enough.

    i do think the disputes hurt in the short term. The classic problem of admitting to your past mistakes, mean a way of judgement comes over you.

    TG says "yep there were cheaters and we're removing them" and the initial response is "proof tg sucks it has cheaters". The brightside is, since TG voluntarily dealt with the problem I do believe long term it will look good for us. We're gaining members and respect all the time. We could've never gained members back when so many people who otherwise would've been members were so aware of the corruption. Now though, those who really dig know tg is doing well. You first get the respect of the experts -- which is in fact happening -- and eventually you get the respect of everyone else too.

    i believe in the future of tg under jace.
