    Hi,

    Do all the best mac games require an internet connection? I'd like to run a good strategy game but see that, for example, starcraft 2 require internet (save in a guest mode where progress is lost).

    Steam Games can allow offline mode, but you have to enable it when connected online. Not sure about SC2

    Warcraft 3 doesn't require internet and IMO, it's better than SC2 right now, but only because it has better/mature MODs at the moment.

    Civ5 is awesome for strategy... works fine offline in steam offline mode.

    Online is the trend. If it's not a multiplayer game (eg. SC2) you tend to need it for the DRM. Many if not exactly all newer games expect connectivity.

    I will be without my fibreoptic internet soon (nooooo!). So I plan on using tethering to the iPhone. It should be good enough at least for the DRM stuff. And I have read people able to do battlenet sc2 gaming via iPhone tether. I hope that works!
