Wakka, wakka, wakka, wakka, wakka, wakka. We’d be rushing too, if it meant putting an end to that infernal – though undoutedly iconic – 8-bit sound effect. Recently, the aptly-named David Race did just that and crossed the classic quarter-muncher’s finish line in three hours, 41 minutes, and 22 seconds.
Race zipped right past previous record holder Chris Ayra, shaving 42 seconds off the former champ’s time.
Guess we’ll have to improve on our current time of “What? You can beat Pac-Man?” if we ever hope to get in on the lavish, sexy Pac-championship lifestyle.

Sorry Hellgate fans – even the promise of a new expansion won’t keep your game of choice from getting the padlock treatment in 2009.
Community manager Diane “Tiggs” Migliaccio explained in a post on the official Hellgate forums:
“People are speculating and I don’t want anyone shocked on January 31, 2009 when the server and forums shut down and there is nothing.”
“Let me explain things a bit to see if it clears up any issues for you. [Expansion developer/publisher] Hanbit owns the IP and rights to publish anywhere other than the US and EU and I think the other territory is Japan. NAMCO owns the rights to publish in the US and EU.”
And that’s that. For now.
