First Question: If I wanted to play say, Mass Effect over at a friends house who doesn't have an internet connection, let alone XBL, does my achievments etc. get logged anyway, for it's a Single player game, or is it always pinging XBL to make this happen on the network and etc.? (I would just take my Hard Drive over to his house to play on his unconnected 360.) (and is it dependent on the SP game. I.e. do some 'need' to ping XBL even tho' it's just SP or not).
Second: I looked around and would of swore I saw this topic, but can't find it when I search. So...Is there any good packages for the DS Lite (I take it the only DS sold now)? And what are the top games for it? (include a puzzler such as a Tetris type game). And any other information I might find useful as a first time DS user.
