Dean Saglio Raises the Bar On D2K!
« on: December 17, 2014, 03:26:09 PM »
Last night on stream, Dean Saglio topped world record holder Ben Falls' Donkey Kong 2 high score (as well as the mysterious "unofficial" world record holder Dustin Austin's reported 405K), with a final score of 425,900!

While Ben will retain the official world record title on arcade hardware, Dean's score is now the one to beat.

As someone with a competitive interest in this title (and who finds it to be flawed but underrated by the community), I'm happy to see this game getting pushed closer to its L=14 "kill screen". I plan to make a push at 300K (and beyond) in 2015, so thanks to Dean for lighting the way!

It was great game to watch. Congrats Dean! Hopefully you can get that game highlighted on your channel and submit an INP. I've saved the video as backup, regardless. What I'm really excited for are Dean's Big Kong attempts.  ;D

Kongrats Dean!  I've only played this game a few times.  It's a lot of fun.  But damn if it isn't tough(not a bad thing).
