Fans cheer on Steve Wiebe for his latest DK high score attempt at E3

Shaggy June 3, 2009 0

If you have seen the documentary “King of Kong” which portrays the ever lasting battle for getting the high score on a classic arcade title like Donkey Kong, then you know of the GoSteveGo_previewrivalry that exists between players when it comes to being the world record holder. In this particular case between Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell, people even take sides as to who they want to see win and while I have not picked a side in this particular competition (I’m probably the only arcade fan out there who has still missed out on seeing KoK), I figure that it’s become one of the more notable rivalries in recent memory and in case you had not heard, Mr. Wiebe took the stage at E3 earlier today to challenge the current high score that is held by Mr. Mitchell. I have not heard how that has come down and I am not sure how long it takes to reach this particular high score in DK but Wiebe fans are cheering him on and have even created a desktop wallpaper to show their support for his effort. I wonder now if Mitchell fans will do this as well (or take it to another level) but in case you want to cheer Wiebe on via your desktop, you can find the wallpapers at Just One More Game.
