The King of Kong's Billy Mitchell

If you’ve seen the 2007 documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, you’re well aware of who Billy Mitchell is. He’s not an easy character to forget. The doc followed Steve Wiebe as he attempted to claim the all-time high score in Donkey Kong from Mitchell, who fought to prevent that from happening using some questionable tactics.

But now some of those questionable tactics have come back to haunt him. Twin Galaxies, the organization which regulates gaming world records, has decided to strip Mitchell of all of his scores and records, including Donkey Kong, and ban him. The decision was the result of an investigation which included the infamous video tape seen in King of Kong.

If interested in all of the dirty details, you can read the full statement on the matter below.

Pixels

Back at the beginning of April, an amazing short film called Pixels by Patrick Jean and Paris visual effects studio One More Productions was unleashed on the world. In the video, the classic video games of the ’80s invaded Earth in all of their pixelated glory and basically take over the world (Read: Atari Apocalypse: ‘Donkey Kong’ & Other Classic Arcade Games Invade New York In ‘Pixels’).

The short video spread like fire, making it one of the more popular videos we’ve seen in a long while. And now that popularity is glowing brightly, as it has been announced that a new feature-length movie will be made based on the concept. Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions are developing the movie with Jean, and they’re out to Columbia Pictures to set the project up with the studio, which has a first-look deal with Madison.

Be sure to click over to the other side if you haven’t seen the short film, Pixels yet.
