King Of Kong Redux : We Be Watching Wiebe

Posted in Video Games at 12:12 pm by

Steve Wiebe, the humble Kirkland, WA algebra teacher who played the babyface to Billy Mitchell‘s heel in the amazing documentary, “The King Of Kong : A Fistful Of Quarters”, is at this very moment, attempting to shatter Mitchell’s Donkey Kong world record at E3.   This is at least as much a sport as the spelling bee, WWL!

    In fairness to Billy Mitchell, he was out of DK practice when Wiebe challenged him. Additionally, there was some magical editing in that doc. For example, in a later scene Mitchell actually shook hands and spoke with Wiebe (this was edited out). This does not excuse the over the top behavior from the TG gang about Wiebe’s supposedly “hacked” DK circuit board. Bending the truth aside, it still was a great flick.

    and, Brian Kuh, while quotable, is still a douche.
