Hello fellow gamers,

After a 10 year hiatus of chasing world records on Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr, it seemed only fitting to get back into the swing of things during all of this madness. Thank you to Jace Hall for reaching out and welcoming me back into the fold. I don't know what will come of it, but might as well see what I've got left in the tank. I'll try to get streaming up and running at some point, but for now I'll just be recording practice runs on Donkey Kong. I hope to get a few games of DK Junior in after I've accomplished my DK goals. Good luck to everyone in their video gaming pursuits. ~ Steve Wiebe

    Mr Wiebe, do you acknowledge that the "kok doc" was fictitious?

    Hey Steve,

    I imagine at least 50 people have already asked, but do you also plan to create an account over at the Donkey Kong Forum?

    I haven't been asked that yet, but that seems like something I should do as well.

    When you go there, look for a guy named Ben's Weenie. He types using a green font. He is a great guy who enjoys playing video games with his reflection in the TV screen, if you get my drift.

    Question to Steve Wiebe.

    1. Are you going to play DK & DK Jr. on MAME or just play on Arcade?

    2. Have you you or your friends ever play the arcade racing game Fast and Furious Super Cars/ Super Cars made by Raw thrills? I would like to have some competition, whenever Main Event, Austin Park n Pizza and Dave and Busters opens up again, here in Austn,Texas.

    3. Have you spoken with Billy Mitchell?

    Here are the current Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Junior top 5 players and scores

    Hi Wes, Long time since you have been playing... anytime soon that you will start play again?

    Hopefully we have not need to wait for a "10 year hiatus" from Wes before he play again?

    There is a way/means to set/link your twitch profile as live streamer here on TG as well as DK Forum.

    Post your twitch channel URL under your profile so that others can "subscribe/follow" your channel.

    I do look forward to join discussions on your live play..

    Mine is set, yet if I ever check on TG when I'm actively streaming on Twitch, I never show up under "active streamers".

    actually i do have a question for you steve. When i was playing stampede I noticed you had a score. Stampede is also the atari track with most entries. between it having the most entries and you being on it i got interested. Apparently both are explained by their actually haven been a brief stampede contest between games at an arcade competition. I further even heard that competitoin was what got twin galaxies banned from funspot. Do you remember anything about the event?

    1. Just arcade.

    2. I have not played those games.

    3. I've spoken to Billy several times when I see him at various events. Haven't talked to him since the last Kong Off I was at a couple of years ago.

    Yes, the Stampede score was done at an event, but I don't recall exactly which one. I want to say CGE '04, but I'm not sure. My score obviously sucks, so it wasn't something that should be taken seriously. I don't remember hearing anything about if/why TG was banned from Funspot.

    Seeing mention of Popeye in here (https://www.twingalaxies.com/feed_details.php/6120/the-second-act-of-steve-wiebe/25), I thought I'd mention it might be worth contacting the people at the local Another Castle retro shops, as I know they had a Popeye cabinet in their Lynnwood arcade location a while back. They might be able to help.
