TO BE UPDATED: World Record Broken Twice (and Lakeman Is Still Champ)

September 21st, 2015 - Last Thursday night, during the latest Donkey Kong Online Open, Wes Copeland beat Robbie Lakeman's world record... and six hours later, Robbie snatched it right back!

So where in the name of Jumpman is the post about "the story of the year?"

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I was unable to get to it in a timely manner, but rest assured, a report is pending.

Thankfully Twin Galaxies was able to be there when I couldn't and got the news wires stirring!

Next thing we knew, Wes and Robbie were hitting the front pages of (among many others) Wired, The International Business Times, and even MTV.

I couldn't be happier to have been "scooped" by TG, and am pleased to see their name back in the news again in the midst of their long period of re-emergence.

What matters, ultimately, is that Wes and Robbie's story got out there. TG doing the deed is another great sign that they've picked up the torch for the gaming community and are running with it again.

As for this blog, I'll let the event marinate for a bit. Though Donkey Blog has proudly broken "world record" news in the past, it's not always a priority (and that's going to be even truer going forward). Better to think of this site more like a magazine than a newspaper.

More soon!
