Does GoW3 allow local co-op and online co-op at the same time? I want to know if my friend and I can play on split screen from my house and join a couple of friends online. What kind of games are allowed this way (if any)?

Did you mean to link a website in your answer? There's currently no link in the body of it, so I was wondering if you forgot? – FAE Nov 19 '11 at 22:36
@FallenAngelEyes Yeah, I forgot. I fixed it now though. – Ash Nov 20 '11 at 0:33
