I have left Microsoft and this blog is no longer under my control. All of the content should remain for some time however and any new updates can be found at http://davedev.net.

"The King of Kong - A Fistful of Quarters". Quite the title, eh? I had heart the buzz about this movie, but didn't get to see it myself until recently. Totally awesome! Being a child of the 80s, a gamer, and a father this movie really hit home with me. Which is why I don't know how I missed this one (having a new baby does that I guess, hehe) but Steve Wiebe (along with referee Walter Day!) will be at the Mix08 party.
Steve is going to try and break the new record set by Billy at Mix! But wait? Didn't the movie end with an update that Steve took the title away from Billy via Video submission in early 2007? I though so too and then I checked out the Twin Galaxies Scoreboard. Looks like Billy took it back last June and via Referee! The battle rages on...
Check out the video by Steve up on the Mix Site. For those attending MIX this should be a blast! I plan to be at the party myself and will share my experiences with you here as well. =)
Join middle-school science teacher, Steve Wiebe, on the evening of Tuesday, March 4th for a special MIX screening of New Line Cinema's "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.” The movie, featuring Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell’s quest to see who is the true King of Kong, will be followed by a Q&A session with Steve, producer Ed Cunningham, and Twin Galaxies referee Walter Day. Then, on Wednesday, March 5th, watch Steve try to recapture his world record at the MIX attendee party at TAO.
