It seemed to speed up the process for me when I shot the shit outta him and ran circles around him. But yeah, you have to let him grab you and try to shoot him in the face to make him let you go.

In a few more months I'll be going to college! Getting ready to try my hand at living alone again, damn excited. I'll just need entertainment, keep me busy for when it comes... I haven't been up with video games for a while, any good titles coming out?
