just got a patch update to v1.03 -- the third update this week. What does it do exactly? Well, the major difference with the new patch seems to revolve around the fact that the servers are up. Not only that, but they're actually running smoothly. Looks like whatever LittleBigHiccup that was bothering the online multiplayer mode is now gone. Now go out there and make those silly Sackpeople do silly things.
[Update: Servers were running smooth this morning, but it looks like they're down again this afternoon. Perhaps the new patch didn't ease the server strains after all.]
[Thanks everyone who sent this in!]
