Barcade in Brooklyn hosted a little shindig yesterday in which it invited hopeful gamers to drink a few rounds and beat a world record or two, although not necessarily in that order. Official judges from Guinness were there to do what they do best, and believe it or not, 2 records were actually smashed.
The games? None other than Tapper and Ms. Pac-Man. Michael Przybocki took home the record for fastest time to beat five boards on Tapper with a time of 1'20"43, while Daniel Dujinc beat five boards on Ms. Pac-Man in a record time of 2'05"80.
The other available records to beat were too much for the competition, but I don't blame them. Highest Out-Run Score (52,897,690), highest Ghosts 'n Goblins score (1,000,100), and highest Donkey Kong score without using the hammer *gasp* (317,000) -- beating any of these would be quite an amazing feat.
