Ben Falls CRUSHES Popeye for Arcade

Slightly older news, but I just heard about this...

My good friend (and fellow Moon Patrol player) Ben Falls is in the news following a SPECTACULAR performance on the arcade version of Popeye.  He posted a score of 3,023,060 points, which almost triples the previous record!

The article can be found here.

Ben, congratulations on a great score on such a difficult game.  I've only really played the NES version, but have tried the arcade a few times.  The arcade version is definitely way harder!

Good luck with Satan's Hollow too!

Donkey Kong (NES) Kill Screen...As a Speed Run?!

Better late than never: Twin Galaxies has just verified my kill screen run on NES Donkey Kong! It is listed under a new variation called Fastest Completion (kill screen), where I have posted a "blazing" time of 5 hours 44 minutes. :)

Making this long affair into a "speed run" allows me and future kill screen gamers to be recognized for having reached the kill screen, without having to worry about points as they play.  Special thanks to TGI referee Tim Stodden for his help in creating this variation.  Without it, there would have been no way for me to submit this run to the record books.
