CrunchArcade: New Yorkers go for Guinness World Record this Thursday at Barcade


Guinness World Records invites you, gamer, to Barcade in Brooklyn this Thursday, April 10, to try to break five world records. You’ll be shooting for a fastest time in Ms. Pac-Man; fastest time in Tapper; highest Out-Run score; highest Ghosts & Goblins (good luck with that, one of the hardest games I’ve ever played); and high Donkey Kong score without using a hammer. Truly awe-inspiring stuff, no doubt.

One caveat. Barcade, as the name implies, is a bar, meaning you’ll need to be at least 21-years-old to enter. Other than that, step right up. I don’t see why I shouldn’t show up. Maybe I’ll get Peter to tag along.
