Steve Wiebe

If you've seen The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, then you'll know (and most likely sympathize with) Steve Wiebe, the venerable subject of said documentary. At E3 today, he's had a Donkey Kong booth set up for him in another attempt to break that other guy's record. The best part is that G4TV has a live webcast and screencast of his attempts! He started at 11am EST and has played twice so far. He's been resting for a few minutes between breaks and its funny to watch other people sit down at the arcade unknowingly trying to play and getting kicked out within seconds. The twitter chat is also keeping me pretty entertained.

I'm definitely pulling for him, but if he's this time-committed to DK, I'd hate to see him play Warcraft.
