noob question - how to tell if a game needs wifi?

I play on a ipod touch, almost never have a wifi connection (so much so I keep it in flight mode!) I recently bought Godfinger which needs a wifi connection, but nowhere in the game description on itunes does it say that. How can I tell if a game needs wifi to run or not?

Read the description of a game and if there is something about MultiPlayer than it will need wifi.Not always MultiPlayer needs wifi but most of the time(there are also games that have bluetooth multiplayer.).

Not really a noob question

noob qs are something on the lines of :
how to I unlock my ipawd?
how to redeem promocodes?
what game should I get? (without any other info)
how to create an itunes account?

Mis-quotes!!!!!!!

Or: Should I post my general question in the general discussion section or in the new release section. I still say only seniors should be allowed to create a post. Noobs never get it right.

You can really telll noobies because they are the ones that are quick to reprimand a new comer posting in the wrong section.

I've seen tons of such threads made and its come to be expected and will always be part of TA.

Mky, think your questions been answered and I'd like to welcome you to TA.

Easy bud, I've been okay with this up until right now. It's breaching on ridiculous. And actually, what I said was the complete opposite of "noob-like". It's also a part of TA that you reprimand these such actions of complete ignorance. I feel a larger TA community agrees that these announces need to be dealt with, and less of the community favors your smart, omniscient comments.

How do you download apps if you never have wifi? Because iPod touches don't have 3G/E either.....

Sounds like you'll be pretty busy then. Meanwhile I'll be enjoying the forum.

Btw, Whats the big compulsion to jump into a thread to scream at someone?

Ever thought to doing it nicely?

Edit: What is bothersome as a new comer posting in the wrong section is someone ranting over it........continuelly.
