    EA won't be making offline games anymore...

    Interesting but nothing out of the normal I suppose... Online is where the $ is at and that's where business's tend to flock...

    per Kotaku...

    If you're the type of gamer to shun online interactivity and retreat into your own little video gaming world when you play, you won't like what EA Games' boss Frank Gibeau has to say. Chatting with trade site Develop, Gibeau says "I volunteer you to speak to EA's studio heads; they'll tell you the same thing. They're very comfortable moving the discussion towards how we make connected gameplay be it co-operative or multiplayer or online services as opposed to fire-and-forget, packaged goods only, single-player, 25-hours-and you're out. I think that model is finished."
    "Online is where the innovation, and the action, is at".

    On this side or the other, we will meet once again.

    No. No games with zero online connection. I highly doubt Mass Effect 3 is going to be a multiplayer game. However, it more than likely will have the Cerberus Network attached to it, as did ME 2. Or Dragon Age, with the DLC packs. You can still play with yourself....I mean by yourself, you just need an internet connection to get full use of everything the game will offer.

    You make it sound like a bad thing.
