During last week's GeForce Kepler Editor's Day event, Gearbox founder and CEO Randy Pitchford appeared in video form to show off what Borderlands 2 can do with Nvidia's GPU accelerated PhysX. It's rather gorgeous.

One day I'll look back at this video as the main reason I spent my entire time in Borderlands 2 on the PC looking for bits of cloth to shoot up and puddles to stomp in.

I am a complete sucker for realistic physics simulation. Shooting at people, places, and things in games is something I see every day. It's business-as-usual. Shooting a tarp in half, on the other hand, is fresh and new, and until EA launches its annual tarp-shooting franchise, this is all I've got.
