The Kong Off is on again. You can watch it all here.
What's the Kong Off? It's the world championship of Donkey Kong, now in its fifth year. This edition is underway at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh.
The field right now is in the second of two days of high score competition. The eight highest-scoring players will then be seeded and placed into a single-elimination bracket competing for highest score head-to-head tomorrow. The winner shall be the champion of Donkey Kong.
Kong Off 4 was won by Hank Chien, the world record holder in Donkey Kong from November 2012 to October 2013.
Donkey Kong's current world record is 1,218,000, set by Wes Copeland in early May, leaving very little room between it and the theoretical maximum score that can be achieved.
