DK Jr. World Record

Another world record set by one of our local boys at the Kencade.

And this is another example of why Cat sucks. She can't just give Mike his props for his accomplishment. She just has to keep harping on this Calvin Frampton BS.

Oh, but remember this score doesn't count because its set on a meaningless scoreboard. You said this yourself.

Ok, DO NOT FIGHT in this thread. Final warning before infractions/suspensions are handed out. We've had enough drama to last the rest of the year with the other thread. Do not bleed it into any others. Thank you.

Re: DK Jr. World Record

I found this quote quite sad:
Quote:

I hope Mike's not being literal.


Quote:

I think it's mostly this line:
Quote:
Until that moment come, Mike Kasper can bask in the glory of knowing that, for the time being, he holds the Donkey Kong Junior world record.
Seems like "come" could be replaced with "comes" or "arrives". There's also two too many commas in the sentence. It should be as follows; Until that moment comes, Mike Kasper can bask in the glory of knowing that for the time being he holds the Donkey Kong Junior world record.

There's a second line that throws me off as well but it's a quote so that may not be Cat's fault, assuming the quote is direct and not a paraphrase.
Quote:
You just has to dig in and commit to playing without error. Hard to do. But it can be done and most likely will be at some point.
Emphasis mine.

It's not on any scoreboard yet. - article dated 24th April - Twin Galaxies | Scores

It seems bizarre for T.G. to publicise it before they put it onto their Scoreboard.

No sign of Calvin Frampton's score on the scoreboards either. Why mention it?

Strange way of doing things.

Re: DK Jr. World Record

The part about the lost record was probably not necessary, and just thrown in with no proper introduction.

I would have filled the space instead with reasons why he decided to attempt this record, what he did to prepare, etc.

If you need to add the part about the lost score and it's credibility I would have put it after his accomplishment. Something like (this isn't perfect writing just an example of how to work that in to the article in a proper sense)

"Kasper is the nth person(dunno the number this is an example) to score over a million points, a score once thought to be impossible on DK Jr. In 2009 a much disputed score of 1.25 million by Calvin Frampton was uncovered. While initially many thought this score was impossible, several players have since passed 1 million points.

Re: DK Jr. World Record

AFAIK and have been told, the location (Kencade) is a TG sanctioned location so scores there can be included into the scoreboard at no charge, provided someone has witnessed/verified it. Could be wrong though, just going off what I have heard.

Well done to the new WR holder. All 3 DK titles are becomnig extremely hard to get.

Re: DK Jr. World Record

It's nice to see Mike get a writeup and it was exciting to see him get the record. He'd been streaming attempts for a while on the Kencade twitch.tv stream (www.twitch.tv/kencade), and it was pretty clear it was just a matter of time before he put a whole game together. I'd been hoping the stream of the world record was still up in the twitch.tv highlights for Kencade, but I just checked and didn't see it there.

The article has a number of factual errors though and also seems to push Cat's personal biases. For example, the article says "It wasn’t until 2010 that Steve Wiebe and Mark Kiehl proved without a doubt that scores over a million were not only probable but attainable". This is of course wrong, as Ike Hall had submitted a score to Twin Galaxies of 1.033M in 2008, and there is a MARP WolfMAME score of 1.040M from back on 2004.

Just a little FYI.

I'm basically finishing up my BS degree in math and physics. Throughout my entire degree I've been working at my local community college teaching and privately tutoring math and physics.

I'm going to be taking the GRE general probably at the end of the summer and the subjects tests in the fall. I will be applying to graduate programs and I'm going for a PhD.

I've been doing these video game scores on my breaks and its been very very fun. However, I don't know if I'm really going to be able to continue these scores other than rare occasions or when I simply have time off. I probably won't even have time for sites like this. All I know is that I'm going to be busting my tail in grad school harder than I have ever busted it before. At least that is what I've been told. Grad school is hard!

So anyway please don't make silly Mc Donalds jokes here as I'm over qualified for any of those positions.

Okay, why don't you use your elite skills and win a prize here on R.U., then you can sell that prize on ebay, and fund your scores.

@DB: Wait, what? Since when is going off-topic a bad thing? I clearly remember you saying that threads should flow like normal conversations.

Also, the only WR discussion allowed in chat is Jaws for the NES.

Re: DK Jr. World Record

It's a bad thing when certain people are doing it just to pick little petty fights. We don't want that kind of vibe around here. You know how it is bro.
