Billy Mitchell must be pissed
. The certified "Video Game Player of the [20th] Century" has lost the Donkey Kong
world record -- again
-- to longtime rival Steve Wiebe. Wiebe nudged Billy's July 31 record of 1,062,800 points with a masterful 1,064,500-point effort, achieved on August 20 and confirmed today by score authority Twin Galaxies
. The two rivals memorably starred in the 2007 documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters
Hank Chien, who ever so briefly
enjoyed the limelight, falls to third on the all-time leaderboard.
