PIXEL BURN - A King, Konquered: The Fall of Billy Mitchell

In this special episode of Pixel Burn I look at how the former Donkey Kong & PacMan world record holder Billy Mitchell wound up losing it all, in a sordid tale of emulation, dodgy tapes and circuit board shenanigans. https://www.patreon.com/bitscreed - If you'd like to directly support the channel http://www.twitter.com/bitscreed - To keep track of my drunken late-night ramblings and random YouTube links to 80s Goth tunes https://www.facebook.com/bitscreeduk - I swear I will not sell your personal data to agents of a foreign power Intro theme is "Big Rock" by the talented Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) "King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters" is available to rent, for about $2 to $4, on places like iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and YouTube.

How is this speedrun possible? Super Mario Bros. World Record Explained

He wasn't actually playing on the Disk System, just the Famicom. The Famicom is essentially the Japanese equivalent of the NES, and the Disk System is an add-on to it that reads special floppy disks. At 4:06, I mention that Kosmic holds the Glitchless WR with a 5:06.709. However, there is a video by Scott Kesler of a 5:05. This is because of timing differences. Glitchless is how Twin Galaxies (a deprecated high score website) view Super Mario Bros. speedruns, and its timing rules are different. They time from the start press on the title screen, which, because of framerules, adds a variation of up to 21 frames to the time of the run based on which frame you pressed start on. This timing difference adds about 2.5 seconds, so Scott Kesler's 5:05 was actually a high 5:07 by TG rules, and Kosmic's 5:06.709 is a low 5:04 with regular timing. At 13:15, I say that when the white pixel is missing, the judges are in a bad mood. For the sake of simplicity, I omitted that it's actually a 50/50 of good/bad judges if you don't get the pixel. However, this is frame dependent and not entirely random, and Kosmic rarely gets good judges with the bad pixel, so I took that shortcut. At 26:35, I claim that the theoretical human limit is 4:55.496. The actual time is 4:55.49668, and it should have been rounded up to 4:55.497. There is another framerule that was not included because while it is considered too hard for humans to ever get in a run. You can save it by doing a frame perfect fast acceleration at the start of 8-1 (after several seconds of black screen, with inhuman reaction time) to save 2 frames, and then doing a TAS flagpole glitch to save 19 frames instead of 15. TAS flagpole glitch never slows down to set it up and is based around doing a left-right wiggle at some point during the level and praying that it set your position up perfectly. The best consistency at this trick is just about 1%, compared to 40% for regular FPG. On March 4th (2 days after the release of this video), StuckInAPlate managed to save the 8-1 framerule from a savestate immediately before gaining control, which eliminates the need to time your frame perfect inputs after a very long wait. https://youtu.be/J1-xDJrmzFY Super Mario Bros.

10 Rare Video Games You Will NEVER Get To Play

10 RETRO GAMES THAT COST MORE THAN THEY’RE WORTH. Video game collectors are an odd bunch. They’re willing to shell out thousands of dollars to buy games that aren’t always very fun. This is TheGamer’s list of 10 Rare Games You’ll Never Get to Play. WHAT DO YOU THINK: - Have you ever paid top dollar for a rare collectible game? - Do you know anyone who has? Let us know in the comments section below! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SUBSCRIBE NOW to The Gamer! Click here: https://goo.gl/9cpWgf Have the next amazing video idea? Submit it to us here: https://goo.gl/forms/hn6vV1Ic2PbfGnhx2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Depending on your gaming platform of choice, you might be used to spending anywhere from zero to $60 for a video game. But rare games are often much more valuable. For instance, Stadium Events is one of the rarest games of all. It was only on the market for a short time before Nintendo bought the rights to it and rebranded it for the Power Pad. Or EarthBound, a classic RPG Nintendo launched to little success on the SNES. Its hero, Ness, would rise to fame later thanks to Super Smash Bros. Nintendo World Championships is a special game cartridge made for a tournament Nintendo held in the 90’s. It contains short sections of a few games and tournament winners got to keep their cart. Legend has it that Atari buried a stockpile of E.T. cartridges in the desert because it sold so far below their expectations. Turns out the legend is true, but buying an unearthed cartridge will cost you big bucks. Mario didn’t just star in Super Mario Bros. in 1985. In the rare game Wrecking Crew, the plumber trades a wrench for a hammer as he knocks down walls. The Flintstones had a rare outing in a game that may have been exclusive to video rental stores. Little Samson is a platformer that lets you swap between four characters on the fly. It has a lot of good ideas, but it came out so late, not many NES owners noticed it. Another late-comer on the NES is TMNT: Tournament Fighters, a fighting game that also happens to be the last game Konami ever made for the console. Bonk’s Adventure is a fun game about a caveman-child with a giant bald head. And Donkey Kong Country got a special limited release for a national tournament put on by Blockbuster. Watch the video to find out even more about these rare video games you’ll never get to play. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Script by: Chris Reed Voice Over by: Justin Freitas Edited by: Kyle West Our Social Media: https://twitter.com/thegamer_site https://www.facebook.com/thegamercom/ Our Website http://thegamer.com

Forget about Bowser: right now, the biggest villain in video games is Billy Mitchell. For over 30 years, he was one of the most prominent gamers in the world, holding high score records on classic arcade titles like Donkey Kong, Burger Time, and Ms. Pac-Man. On April 12, 2018, however, all that came crashing to an end. Twin Galaxies, the organization that crowned Mitchell as the king of arcade games back in the '80s, determined that three of his world-record scores have been falsified. That might seem like a simple outcome, but the real story behind Mitchell's rise and fall is a maze with more turns than Pac-Man. From bitter rivalries to a lawsuit against a cartoon, here's the story behind Billy Mitchell...
