Hey guys, quick question for you. Does Minecraft require an internet connection for local play? I ask because I bought the indie game "Total Miner: Forge" for my son a while back, but we can't even play a local game w/o an internet connection, which we don't have at the time. Now he's bugging me for Minecraft, and I was considering getting it.
Also, I get that Minecraft is the original, and Total Miner is a knockoff of it, but what is the big difference between the two, if anyone has played both? Thanks.
