On that last point, I just received a beta key yesterday (my reward for pre-ordering a staggering 4 years ago) and hopped over to the new Battle.net service to use it. It’s pretty impressive: it’ll recognize almost all of the older games you want to register, works really quickly and looks very clean. I’m going to take a deeper look into its in-game achievement tracking system, but you can definitely see the fruits of project director Greg Canessa’s work throughout Battle.net 2.0. Giant Bomb has a really good interview from BlizzCon 09 about it, and it promises to be a really robust service that supports all of their future titles.
Should be a crazy, crazy summer; come the end of July, South Korea will be shutting down for at least a week.
