Definitive version confirmed.

Thank you so much 2K. I beat it and noticed weapon pixelation as well as on the Big Daddies, and they corrected it and so much more. Every other dev take notice now, this is how you earn your praise. I am even more proud that I purchased it now after the devs took the time to patch up their mistakes, and I will be paying it a repeat visit very soon.

You give 420 a bad name. Shame on you.
