So, kinda late to the game, but can a friend and I do splitscreen multiplayer? If not, could one of us play from the monitor while the other plays from the TV (using the same computer and game).

Thanks.

Not unless you have a really weird computer. You could probably get both games to display with two screens (if you can get two instances running in the first place), but you'd need something to manage input from multiple keyboards/mice and something else to focus on two windows simultaneously, unless you prefer turn-based multiplayer.

I think you'd need two computers at least. Split screen multiplayer was what the Xbox version was for...

^That looks great if it still works :D

So the 360 version can go splitscreen eh? The only problem with that is that I don't own one lol. Options are good if I ever get one down the line.

Thanks for the info, all!
