    With the blast of popularity in super technical nerd types such the ones who get into speed running, it was really only a matter of time. I think it's kinda dumb and really obvious that many of Todd's records are supremely fake. Seems like it's logical to wipe him clean of the DB and allow him to resubmit ones with actual evidence if he still has any skill left...but we all know how likely a future submission would be at that rate.

    His first video was somewhat interesting. I know nothing of the speed run scene, but I occasionally watch the breakdown videos.
    I like seeing the glitches and programming quirks they find to get such ridiculous times.

    They actually wouldn't accept my Donpachi score because I would have to do it at a sanctioned arcade. Yet.....mame scores are ok.

    Submitted this. And it's not even my best score.

    Sounds like they’re pulling a Steve Wiebe on you.
    "Don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma-which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

    It really just goes to show how brain dead people are if they still think twin galaxies was ever good.

    Apollo needs to reupload those cringe videos since he took them down like a little female dog.



    he spends hundreds on scarves, of course he's a fag and then ChuChu Flamingo preserved the aftermath in a plastic case making sure it wasn't exposed to unstable air
    You're just upset that you're too goddam stupid to understand the games and whiff infinites.

    Its´s an American thing right ?
    World champion of video games in a time before internet and pretty much no one in the world has even heard of Ottumwa , video game capitol of the world ( LOL ).
    In Japan people where playing Space Invaders the whole day long before the game even made it to the US , many played daily after work .
    The fore runners of actual arcades called Invader houses which, as the name suggests where filled with just Space Invaders caused a shortage of Yen coins in Japan but when the first cabinet entered the US and some one put a coin in it, played two levels and died he was immediately hailed in a Ticker tape parade sitting in the back of a Cadillac convertible as the new World Champion .

    Not sure when you're talking about being told this but plenty of people submit scores from their homes and so forth now.

    Arcade and MAME are tracked separately for the record.

    I've always been amused at how much lot of low hanging fruit there is in 90s arcade games. Not worth the effort to get it verified, I suppose. Also ones with the wrong default settings.

    Was it in Chasing Ghosts that Walter tried to send his referee Jersey to the Smithsonian, completely unsolicited? Everything about Twin Galaxies makes me so uncomfortable.
