A friend recommended this in passing, and I finally have sometime and money to spend so I figured it might be worth it.
I read somewhere that due to some digital rights...legal thing that there is no single offline mode. I tried searching for clarification in google/the forums, but I was met with a bunch of jargon that only muddled my perception further.
Would someone mind breaking this down in terms for a person who doesn't really have experience with competitive playing and such if my following perceptions are off?
Let me know if I have it--you need to pay for the gold membership or whatever so Mr. and Mrs. Diablo know that you have a non-pirated copy via interwebs. You can only play this game when you are connected to the internet...and I'm guessing playing this used isn't an option either because if someone else had this registered, Mr. and Mrs. Diablo probably won't like me playing it on my console.
Since video games are expensive as is, paying an additional 20 on top of the price of the game is unattractive. But the bits I've seen in my internet travels are enticing. I might just bite it and give it a shot in the interests of doing something new--and I do love co-op type play (and boy is it rare for me since I rarely do online play to begin with).
Although, if there is a less expensive option, I definitely would like to give it a test drive first before dropping like 80 dollars on something that may not be fun for me.
Thanks for the advice and, hopefully, I'll look forward to enjoying this.
