The battle for one of gaming's most coveted world records just keeps getting more bananas.
A new mini-documentary by Vice magazine chronicled the battle for the worldwide high score in "Donkey Kong" at Kong Off 3 in Denver. In one corner is current world-record holder Hank Chien, a Harvard-educated plastic surgeon practicing in Manhattan. In the other is a young, vain French-Canadian fitness freak by the name of Vincent Lemay.
Previously, the 2007 acclaimed documentary "The King Of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters" told the 1980s-era tale of the fight for "Kong" supremacy, which pits Billy Mitchell, an eccentric hot-sauce entrepreneur and gaming legend, against Steve Wiebe, a mild-mannered Seattle school teacher.
You really can't make this stuff up.
