  3. Can you play e-shop games offline?

I ask this because I used to love playing Minecraft on the Xbox 360 with my friends online. However, one day my account became blocked, and the solution it gave me only led me to a dead end. I became frustrated and just decided to play it offline temporarily.

That's when I discovered that I couldn't. Even though I had paid for the game I was unable to play it without being online. Honestly, this is enough to make Microsoft lose my business. So that's why I'm wondering if you can play Wii U games, both retail and e-shop, offline. It's a big factor in whether I get the system or not.

You can play Xbox Live Arcade games offline. It's on a game by game basis. It's not MS's fault when a publisher forces it. Same with Nintendo.
Currently playing: Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS)

Nah I play Minecraft offline all the time. I works fine. You just gotta "confirm" your account or something. I forgot how. It in account settings i believe. But google, "playing Xbox 360 arcade games offline". And you should be able to work it out.

I didn't do anything. I only ever communicate with two people on my Xbox Live account. So I've no idea why it says my account is suspected of SPAM.
