As soon as I saw this on the homepage I just knew it was going to involve Billy 'The Bell-End' Mitchell.

Five stars for King of Kong and Steve Wiebe; none of them for him.

I saw an interview with Billy not long ago where he claims to have never seen King of Kong. He also claims that he no longer plays Donkey Kong because he has become so good at it that it bores him now.

Sounds legit!

Funny enough, one of the recent Game Center CX episodes that got subbed has Arino playing Pac Man in a little restaurant, and he does the exact same trick. The creator, Toru Iwatani, told him about it in a previous interview.

I think it's a different trick, but you know, in all my years, I've never heard of ANY Pac Man tricks. And now, in a single day, I've learned two.

COINCIDENCE?

Riskbreaker
It's the exact same area where you are suppose to be inmune to the ghosts. The difference i see is that Arino was never attacked by any ghost while he left pac man there, here a ghost does pass trough that area, but didn't hurt pac man.

Different trick, though. I Googled it up just to be sure, and sweet Jeebus, there's a lot I don't know about Pacman:

According to this, the "safe zone" trick is a product of the various AI routines that the different ghosts follow. Hiding in the "Arino corner", assuming you aren't being actively pursued, causes each ghost to lock itself into a pattern that ignores Pacman completely.

Apparently passing through ghosts is a well-known (amongst Pacman nerds?) trick that's caused by a hit detection glitch. With the proper timing and technique, Pacman appears to touch the ghost, but they don't occupy the same hitbox during the detection check, so you pass through the ghost unharmed. There's an official name for this move- a "booey"- and there's videos of people performing two or three of them in a row.

Who is the greater douchebag: the douchebag, or those that are impressed by the douchebag?

Meditate upon that, and you will achieve enlightenment.

Billy Mitchell is not the supervillain we need, but the one we deserve.
Xenocide
Sounds like Billy is still pissed off about the movie.

This pleases me.

He didn't plug his hot sauce though.

I've seen someone do this. That someone was a little girl.
Riskbreaker
I bet she said the same thing Billy said after doing the trick.

Being an expert at a 30 year old game that most video game champion players thoroughly exhausted ages ago really doesn't make you "the best arcade player."

That is something screamed a hundred times at the TV the first time anyone watches King of Kong.

Funny enough, another movie about the exact same subject with the exact same people came out right about the same time. It's called Chasing Ghosts and it's pretty much King of Kong without a narrative stringing it together. Still worth a watch because these people are still so sadly hilarious.

Things you will get from Chasing Ghosts that weren't in KoK:

- Mr Awesome's speech on how Missile Command is superior because missiles are phallic.

- One of the champion's collection of dozens of tarantulas and cats.

- A further look into Walter Day's self-proclaimed "Video game capital of the world" empire in some two traffic light Colorado town.

- Discussion of video game groupies, cutting to a shot of Billy Mitchell with a hickie.


Chasing Ghosts is on Netflix instant!
