E3 2009: Steve Wiebe Gets Kill Screen on G4TV, Donkey Kong Record Attempt

[UPDATE] – Steve Wiebe currently has 900,000 with 1 life in his pocket.

In a surprising turn of events, Steve Wiebe –attempting to break the Donkey Kong Hi-Score record — received a green screen of death.  It’s not the “Kill Screen” that’s been made famous when you beat Donkey Kong and Mario just spins in his spot and dies — Game Over.  It’s one of the more successful types of ending your Donkey Kong gameplay experience and one that Steve Wiebe has done at Funspot.

It seems that during Steve Wiebe’s attempt at the World Record presented by G4 at E3 2009, the power was suddenly cut short.  Can it be the ghost of Billy Mitchell watching over Steve Wiebe’s attempt.  Up to that point, Steve Wiebe had a perfect game with no deaths and was up to level 12 with a score over 150,000.


While the video was cut short due to the power outage of the Donkey Kong cabinet, the audio continued and what we heard next raised our eyebrows “my game shut off..billy mitchell must be behind this”.  We’re not exactly sure if Steve Wiebe or Walter Day (Referee on site) made that comment.

    So did he beat it?

  5. Sanzee says:

    No he didn’t beat it, but it’s clearly obvious that Mullet Man planned this and doesn’t want Steve Wiebe to break his record. Mullets are for rednecks! Stop wearing that suit with the American flag tie! Nobody likes people who dress from the 80’s! Mullets are a crime of war!

    I just got back from a family vacation in FL. It turns out that I was at the bar sitting next to a big gamer named Billy Mitchell. After hours of drinking, he starts babbling about not actually achieving scores which he once claimed. Apparently, with the help of others, was given credit for games he never even played. He was suspiciously visiting the restroom every 15 minutes and acting very strange. He has this very odd haircut and thinks he is this amazing person. My girlfriend and I couldn’t stop laughing at his ridiculous hairdo and white powdery substance smeared across his nose and brow. Poor Billy!
