He'd been playing for 50+ hours, I think he just wanted to stop. "
he'd been playing over 60 hours with only bathroom breaks...i'd wanna stop too.

I could beat him.

At one point super close to the record he came back from a bathroom break, lost focus and was down to two lives.  Asteroids is intense.

Asteroids? lol alright, i respect that.

This is likely the high point of my day.  Awesome!

I was there! Thanks Jeff for posting this.

Posted by Hot_Karl

He did it! 
 
Mr. McAllister, you have the respect of all the duders here. Asteroids is a hard son-of-a-bitch game, and to get over 41 million points is a remarkable achievement. Congrats!!

This is surprising?  A person's inner douche bag loves the internet.

@Andre: he probably thought "if anybody wants to stay up and play this game for two and half days. more  the power to them"

Hopefully there will be a quick replay somewhere on Giant Bomb

I hit play literally just as people clap his victory. What the hell.

That was pretty awesome.  I tuned in about 2 minutes before he beat the high score. Kinda neat witnessing a record of such a classic game being broken live.

I've never seen someone break a world record before. It was something.

@Andre: He played for 57+ hours to beat the high score. How much more is really needed?

He beat the record and gave up immediately. A tad disappointing, but awesome nonetheless. 

Posted by Foggen

I tune in and at that exact moment he's entering his initials.  Rad.

NEW WORLD RECORD!!!

Edited by Jettblackk

Kill Screen is the "end" of a classic arcade game...It runs out of memory, and resets...and apparently he made it to the record!!!

Posted by LiquidPrince

Done. He set the new world record.
