Following up on the post I made yesterday about a marathon attempt to set a world record for Grand Theft Auto gameplay (it's all happening right next door to Boing Boing tv, at DECA studios) -- bleary-eyed and sleep-depped Bush League GM/Executive Producer Allison Kingsley says, between caffeine slurps...

We're getting close! Jim, our dedicated Bushleaguer, is in his 23rd hour of playing GTA IV for the world record. It was a long, long night but he's nearing the 24th hour. The good news is he's doing surprisingly well, the bad news (in his words) after all this time he's only slept with one hooker.

Other favorite stats:

  • 25.27% of the game completed
  • 34 missions passed
  • started 23 fires
  • killed 10 people with bare hands
  • shot to death 31 times
  • 265.46 is the longest jump distance
  • 1 kill with a molotov cocktail
  • $50.00 most spent on a date (and although not a big spender he did score 5 times)
  • 38,188 spent on health care
  • ...and the stat he's particularly proud of? 0 times cheated.
  • Link to ongoing live video and chat; tweets here, G4 just did an interview here. Some quick iphone snaps I took of the ongoing madness are above, below, and here.
