The 14 Hours Of Borderlands 2

// Submitted @ 3:26 PM on 10.07.2012




PTEW! PTEW!
Let me tell you about an eventful evening.
An evening of unboxing and playing Borderlands 2.
An evening of playing Borderlands 2 for 14 hours straight.

15:00
I arrive at my friend`s apartement. He likes to call himself Stevie Metallheadz
We drink coffee before we actually start to play - plain and harmless fun, mind you.

15:15
We unbox Borderlands 2
(We have seen this on Youtube. It is not as awsome an experience as we have imagined)

15:30
We have decided on our characters. Stevie goes Gunzerk, whereas I want to discover my inner goddess (Siren).

17:30
Itís a good game; well written, fine gameplay and all that
Nevertheless we have already stopped to pay any attention whatsoever to NPC-dialogue.
Itís all about stats and waypoints now. Wow, that happened really fast.
We agree on not liking flying enemies and big-ass-robots with reflective shields.

18:00
We take a short break in order to buy some beer and red wine.
We are noticing slight nausea on the way, while moving through real-life-space.
Ah, yes: we try to compensate for the sudden loss of this certain floaty momentum we are used to by now.

21:30
Loot! Loot! Loot!
Time to order Food..

22:00.
Chicken Vindaloo successfully delivered. Short break

22.15
We proceed with Borderlands 2

23:15
I notice a certain numbness in my feet. The ashtray is disgustingly full.
Stevie turns on the heat. Thank you, Stevie!

The time between 23:15 and 05:00 passes without further incidents. We reach level 19.

05:00
After several unsuccessful attempts to beat Slagged BloodWing, I finally give up.
The prospect of further grinding doesnít scare me but my body is tired.
I am afraid I might die. At least it feels a little like dying
Stevie seems eager to go on, though. He is my hero now.
We quit playing Borderlands 2
We take pictures of the tired eyes:




05:15
I am going home.
On my way to the tramway-station I fight the sudden urge to aim at passers-by. Boom Boom.
Morning has broken.
