Dedicated Gamer Hits Borderlands 2 Level Cap In Just 43 Hours
Have you hit the level cap in Borderlands 2 yet? No? ...well, what's taking so long?
Gearbox's epic adventure is big. It'd take some time to max out a character. But if you're a dedicated championship gamer like Matt Siegfried, you take that length (and the requisite difficulty) as an acceptable challenge. In other words...bring it.
And so, after picking up the amazing Borderlands 2 at a midnight launch, he went home with the burning desire to be the very first to hit that Lv. 50 cap. Well, he has apparently done it, maxing out in exactly 43 hours and 15 minutes. You can see his entire run at the linked TwitchTV page, but we recommend not spending 43 hours watching it. It's enough to know he did it.
I have to say, though, being nothing but a lowly slow player, these speed runs confuse me. I don't even know why I'd want to do such a thing, other than to set the record. Great games are meant to be savored. Hell, I tried to make each Uncharted last weeks (even though that turned out to be impossible). What's this new obsession with going as fast as humanly possible? Savor, I say, savor.
