    Freedom... is the ability to challenge yourself far beyond the constraints of traditional rule and order. We draw strength from our passions... we're driven by desire... even hatred can be a worthy ally when used against an enemy... and yet, we are told to turn our backs on these things... the very feelings, emotions... that make us all... human.

    This actually interests me, mostly because he got these so called scores at an arcade quite near me, I had read his and the oppositions stories for some reason years ago, it was quite weird, who would have thought of a plot to conspire to get video game high scores.
    Khaladon starts to turn the crystal knob, but stops with a frightened look on his face. He begins shaking uncontrollably and flies across the room, as though by some invisible force.

    **SPLAT!!** Khaladon careens off the far wall, slides down the smooth wood panelling and collapses into a quivering heap on the floor, with only his dignity bruised.

    because you can mod an emulator, not to mention play in a more comfortable position etc etc. If you read the stories, he did all kinds of dirty stuff behind the scenes to harm other people and the group that keeps the records

    The record is based on a single, uninterrupted run. An emulator can allow you to use savestates and splice different runs together.

    Also, Todd Rogers was stripped of a lot of his records as he and Billy Mitchell were pretty much equally shady.

    Video games are serious business.
