How random, I just stumbled across G4's coverage of Steve Wiebe going for the Donkey Kong record again, but this time it's live via webcam. VERY COOL!
Watch live video from G4TV - Steve Wiebe Donkey Kong Cam on Justin.tv
You can see the live chat that goes along with it here.
Update: 6:32 PM EST - OH SNAP! He's on his 3rd (and possibly final) try, somewhere under 200k I think, and the power just went out! You can hear them though. This is epic, I tell you, it's a SAGA...
