Borderlands 2 came out last week and it didn't take too long for someone to hit the level cap of 50. For your consideration, here's Ohio State University student Matt Siegfried achieving that task in 43 hours and 15 minutes. As far as we know, this is the first person who has hit the level cap for the game.
Gaming Nexus is based out of Columbus Ohio so it's nice to see someone from my alma mater accomplishing something in the video game field. Congratulations on hitting the level cap and go bucks!
