It's a long time I wonder this : why, in my games library, can't I play offline with a lot of games, while I can play with some others ?
Exemple : I can launch State of Decay but not Shadow Complex, both purchased on the XBLA.
Another exemple with 2 games offered by Games With Gold : Bioshock Infinite is OK but not Assassin's Creed 2 (I have to connect internet for playing with it)
I don't think it could be a licence problem, because I have downloaded ALL the games with the same console. Is there a possibility that editors just put a DRM in some games in particular ?
Moreover, I noticed some weird icons of Xbox controller at the bottom of each note card :
- a semi controller with dotted line (for demo/trial versions, actually)
- a complete controller (you can play even offline)
- a complete controller with a disk in front (= disk installation = you need the original disk to play)
- a complete controller with a kind of triangle ----> some will work offline, but not others ---> WHY ??
Is there a FAQ for these symbols ?
Next year I will probably be offline for some months ; it's desapointing to know that I will not be able to play with so many games I bought..!
Thank you in advance if someone can clarify all of this !
