    i'm sure a lot of Bioshocks will sell over the holidays though, so this patch is a good move.

    Stellar game in all ways...except the shitty ending!

    I agree I really liked the game, but was disappointed with the ending.... they had the right idea with the whole you are what you make it theme, but I just think it wasn't expressed well enough...

    Finally mouse acceleration fixes!!!

    - Fixed issue with characters squirming and wiggling after death

    LOL...I thought this was part of the quirky nature of the game

    Does the mouse acceleration fix means it fixes the mouse lag that appears long before choppyness?
