Hardest video gaming records to beat

The documentary King of Kong demonstrates that video game scores and mullets are indeed a serious business. Everyone is aiming to achieve a new speedrun or another video game-related record, so it might be difficult to keep up at times. If getting your name inscribed in gaming history is your thing, go for it. However, certain video game records will almost certainly never be broken.

Video gaming is taking over mainstream gaming, and most of us cannot escape the lure of winning by playing real-money live games on our favorite platforms. This article samples some incredible records that every gamer dreams of beating.

$39.7 million Slot Machine Jackpot

In 2003, the largest jackpot ever won on a slot machine was won. A young software engineer decided to have some fun playing on a Megabuck slot machine at the Excalibur Casino. After just a few spins, the guy had won $39.7 million. Two decades down the line, the win remains the largest slot machine payout in history.

The 25-year-old Los Angeles software programmer agreed to have his prize winnings distributed over the next 25 years. His story has served as an inspiration over the years, and with top gaming platforms like Betway providing multiple winning opportunities, who knows you could be next.

 

Longest Game Marathon Of All Time

The longest game marathon of all time is the one world record that everyone wishes to break. Carrie Swidecki dethroned the Call of Duty record holder in 2015, lifting the bar higher than ever with 138 hours and 34 seconds in Just Dance.

People were shocked that someone could break this record using Just Dance, but Carrie proved them wrong. She owned the previous Just Dance record and wants to beat herself while collecting money for charity. She constantly played from July 11th to the 17th, making this not just the most coveted record in gaming but also perhaps the most astounding record ever.

 

Largest Video Game Collection

Every gamer has the right to be proud of their collection. They’re maintained clean, orderly, and in proper order on the shelf and are the light of gamers worldwide. However, with 20,139 games in his collection, Antonio Romero Montero has set the bar high for this milestone in 2020.

This man can genuinely play whatever he wants since his home in Richmond is a gaming Mecca. His collection is so large that counting them all took him eight days. It all started when he was twelve years old, and he now possesses the entire PS2 and 3 collection in North America and many more games.

It is never too late to start your own gaming collection, from all the games you play on Betway to the old consoles that get outdated as new technology rolls in.

The Longest Storyline in a Video Game Franchise

Tekken is the longest-running continuous plot in gaming, with over 20 years of games and counting. Even the game’s director was astonished, believing the award would go to an RPG. Instead, this franchise from the early 1990s won. While it is not up to players to break the record, everyone is waiting for a developer to take the plunge.

Older series, such as Tomb Raider and Doom, were banned due to reboots. On the other hand, Tekken has maintained an uninterrupted plot for nearly 20 years. Characters have married, died, been replaced, or been subjected to hostile takeovers. Because the plot is delivered chiefly in arcade mode through text over still graphics, several players are unaware of it. However, die-hard fans enjoy the ups and downs of this fighting game series’ backstory.

Feeling a bit buzzed The Last of Us Pedro Pascal from HBO wins SAG Award

Pedro Pascal may have indulged in a few too many Dark ‘n’ Stormy’s before the 2024 SAG Awards, where he clinched the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Joel Miller in the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us. Appearing slightly intoxicated, the actor portraying Joel confidently stepped onto the stage and stated, “This is incorrect for several reasons. I’ve had a few drinks. I believed I could become intoxicated. Thanks, HBO! Oh boy, I feel a bit embarrassed, but I really appreciate this.”

Pascal faced tough competition from Succession actors Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and Matthew MacFadyen, along with The Morning Show’s Billy Crudup. He emerged victorious for the award and, seemingly oblivious to his defeated competitors, remarked:

“I’ve been in the union since 1999, so this is a tremendous honor. “We’re on Netflix,” Pascal noted, mentioning the streaming platform’s position on censorship. “I might experience a surge of anxiety and decide to depart.” Pascal expressed gratitude to showrunner Craig Mazin, Naughty Dog head Neill Druckmann, colleagues, and production staff for their valuable contributions.

REYNATIS appears as a rugged yet strangely attractive action RPG for PS5 and PS4

It’s unfair to criticize the time it takes to develop PS5 and PS4 games, only to then judge REYNATIS for appearing a bit messy. Developers are investing significant sums in creating high-budget games nowadays, so maybe it’s about time we adjust our expectations and embrace slightly less polished releases instead.

This introduction sets the stage for FuRyu’s latest game, which could easily fit in as a late-gen launch on the PS3, but that doesn’t take away from its potential for enjoyment. A team of former Square Enix employees created this game, which explores a power struggle among magicians in Shibuya. Some aim to flaunt their abilities, while others prefer to keep them hidden.

The setting is truly remarkable; having visited Shibuya, it captures the essence of the iconic location perfectly. The combat appears solid, but there are performance issues to address, especially with the Japanese release scheduled for July 25th. Although there has been no official announcement regarding a Western release, we anticipate that a publisher will likely pick it up later this year.

Leaked footage of LittleBigPlanet Hub on PS3 brings a nostalgic wave

Once upon a time, Sony revealed Little Big Planet HUB, a free-to-play exclusive for the PS3 available on the PS Store. It seems that the game will merge all the content from LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2, giving fans the opportunity to play, create, and share without any cost. The concept was ambitious, which likely made the platform holder hesitant.

It is common knowledge that the planned release in August 2013 never materialized, with many speculating that it evolved into Little Big Planet 3. More than a decade later, footage from a beta version of LittleBigPlanet Hub has surfaced after an old NDA expired.

There is not much that is unexpected here: the gameplay resembles LittleBigPlanet, featuring floaty physics, prize bubbles, and narration by Stephen Fry. It’s intriguing to come across cancelled titles such as this one. A free-to-play version of LittleBigPlanet could potentially thrive in today’s landscape of creative live services similar to Roblox and Minecraft.
