PAX East 2013: Gearbox panel

This is going to be in the style of a live blog:

New level cap has now been raised to 61. There is also a new tier of gear that starts at level 51 and goes until 61.

The new vault hunter is named “Kreig”,  also known as “the psycho”

Kreig has some of the abilities that you’ve seen Psycho’s use before.

Here’s the unveil video

Skills: buzz axe rampage

Melee- smash with axe
Ranged- throw axe
Kill to stay alive. You get full health when you kill an enemy.

Some live gameplay of Kreig using his buzz axe to smash and hit enemies from near and far. Showed a room that had all weapons and upgrades

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!
