Billy Mitchell’s Donkey Kong and All Other Records Removed

After many months of researching, Twin Galaxies administration has determined the dispute made by Jeremy Young (@xelnia) to be accepted. Alongside this, all of Billy Mitchell’s scores have been removed from Twin Galaxies leaderboards.


Shenmue I & II remasters have been announced as coming to the PS4, XB1 and PC, in advance of the third game’s release.

I remember someone (Ben?) saying they’d never played it before.

This is a pretty good write-up of why the game is an important one historically, but might not hold up so well today.


Yeah, weren’t the originals Dreamcast only?

In any case, interesting news. Given the age of the originals, it’ll have to be a proper remaster job too.

Smart to do these ahead of the third game.


I think the second one got a PS2 and/or Xbox port, but I might be wrong.
