Yes, but you cannot go on servers. The connection on the servers will fail. :( But you can still play Single Player (or SSP) as always, but in 1.3 (and 1.4) with the Single Player cheats, instead of saying Just_Go_With_It (for example I put my user-name) it will just say, Player, instead. Oh! When you try to log-in it will say, connection failed, but just hit, play offline! Smile

No. You can play offline if you download the game. (I have done this several times, so it IS possible).

To play the game on the Minecraft website or to play on a server, you must.

Yes, it is possible to play offline although only if you've downloaded the .minecraft folder by logging in. When you try to log in and you get the can't connect to, just hit 'play offline'.
However there are limitations when playing offline, the biggest one being to do with servers. You cannot play on an internet server and if you are trying to join a LAN server with other people who are playing offline, it will not work because a server does not allow players with the same name, which in this case would be 'player'.

Hope this helped ;-)

No you don't but it is required to log onto your account once before you can play offline
