    PSN users experienced basically this entire scenario back in 2011

    lol, good one XD That also confirms my assertion that I would be largely unaffected, because back then, aside from the annoyance of not being able to download Outland from the PSN, I played games as fine as usual ^^

    I'm all for bringing back mandatory local multiplayer again

    So, we're basically going back in time 25 years in terms of communication.

    Buying games would become a nightmare since stores can't restock without the internet. :p
  • BladedFalcon - February 6, 2014 12:40 p.m.

    There's this wonderful thing called phones...
  • LordZarlon - February 6, 2014 5:09 p.m.

    Yes, thank you! We could communicate instantaneously with phones before the internet.

    arcades would make a comback

    Personally it wouldn't really matter to me since about 9/10 games in my collection are predominantly single player with multiplayer as a secondary mode or none at all.

    Playing online isn't that important although I dont play online multiplayer like I should.

    Wow, imagining it now, and the world feels warmer, happier even. The sun is shining - none of that post-2000 grey depression hovering over the land like a dark, digital cloud. Kids are playing split-screen local multiplayer games, (or "2 Player" as it was known) instead of watching grainy clips of people being murdered on their phones. Games mags. "Arcade perfect" ports. Boxed, retail release Broken Sword 5. The 90's are back, bitches. Brilliant, genuinely funny feature. MOAR PLEEZ.

    Most of the things after Day U seem nice except the lack of online guide & faq.
  • DarkenedRurouni - February 6, 2014 1:13 p.m.

    We used to buy these things called strategy guides. They came out for almost every game and provided step by step walkthroughs. With pictures.
  • Moondoggie1157 - February 6, 2014 4:52 p.m.

    That, and porn.
  • shawksta - February 6, 2014 10:27 a.m.

    Look on the bright side, Nintendo Power wouldnt have died
  • WooddieBone - February 6, 2014 10:12 a.m.

    I hope this happens. I'm sick of CoD, LoL and other online bullshit that's turning people in idiots.
  • TanookiMan - February 6, 2014 9:39 a.m.

    Here's how my Day U would go: My friends and I pause briefly as we hear millions of voices suddenly cry out in terror before being suddenly silenced. Our copy of Smash Bros. 64 continues to work with no problems, so we continue business as usual. Later that night, I discover I have no access to Gamesradar.com, and shed a solitary tear for a lost friend.

    "some for the first time ever" Holy damn I laughed way too hard at that
  • BladedFalcon - February 6, 2014 9:18 a.m.

    And I would be blissfully unaware of all this. As most of what I play if off-line anyway XD And no problem if many of the current games needed patches to work, one of the few perks of living in a technologically retarded place like Mexico is that finding physical media and working old consoles is fairly easy and cheap. I'd only have to be one of the first to get into buying as much as I can, I would be right as rain ^^ Of course, being unable to bitch constantly in the Internet as I do now would be mildly missed. But I'm sure I'd get over it within days XD
  • pl4y4h - February 6, 2014 9:49 a.m.

    How is it there anyways? Most people I talk to tell me to avoid Mexico if i value my life or something along those lines, but I'm sure it can't be that drastic
  • BladedFalcon - February 6, 2014 10:33 a.m.

    Yeah, that's a gross over-exageration. I mean, it HAS gotten nasty with the whole conflict between drug cartels and the government and what not, but it's not a war-zone by a longshot, and more importantly, life goes on as usual, so long as you don't have any connection with the cartels, you have nothing to fear, at least, not more than usual. Bottom line, if you came over here, you're not automatically in danger at all, specially if you go to zones in which there's no conflict, which are most of the country really. Again, news just like to overblow things because they sell more that way *shrugs*
