Wow I havent even thought about that game in months. Finished it twice and it gathered dust ever since. I guess this may give me a reason to fire it up again.

Wow, is it that easy? At least they don't have MY money yet! :laugh:

Maybe they should sell games for 50% off these days, and when you want to get the COMPLETE version 6 months later, you can pay the other half. At least they are giving out some extra plasmids for your inconvenience..... hehe.

there was trouble with the 64 bit version of Vista?:wtf:

Im glad to get extra plasmids, but if we don't see newer areas to explore that take advantage of the plasmids I don't really see a use for them. Still havent finished Bioshock yet, right now Im wearing the Big Daddy helmet, OK no more spoiolers for yall that havent played it yet its too good to pass up the story.

Some people are, I can't play more than 30 minutes without a crash to desktop. a dozen other games run perfect on this PC and I tried every driver I could find. I think the people having the most issues are people with 8800GT + Vista 64, so it could be a nvidia problem.
