What about Achievements?!

#1 Posted by king0fprussia (147 posts) -

In all the hubbub surrounding Starcraft II's release, I don't know that anyone has answered this essential question (unless, of course, they have):  
 
How will SCII achievements track on Giant Bomb?

I too would like to know the answer to this question.

More important question: got a guest pass?

Spoon didn't someone agree to give you one? 
 
Anyway, if it's anything like WoW i'm sure they'll be able to be tracked on GB. Just give the poor little engies some time.

Same way they do it on WoW.

Anyone know if they have an API for the SC2 achievements yet? Maybe they haven't gotten to that yet.

@Spoonman671:  Dude you're making me sad..  I don't even play Starcraft, but I want to go buy it just so I can give you this damn 'guest pass'!  G'luck sir.  =P

Yeah I played first mission twice just so I can get all achievements.. Haha, it would be great if they are tracked here on GB.

I imagine GB will be on it in the coming weeks.  I'm more interested to know if Blizzard will somehow conflate the WoW and SC2 achievements into some sort of "Battle.net" achievement listing.

agreed, it should work like it does with steam stuff.

I haven't seen anything yet about Blizzard releasing an API, but it wouldn't surprise me if they do.

Shouldn't there be an achievements button for this game on the GB page?

I feel like that might get kinda crazy, with each of your characters able to earn the same billion achievement in WoW. 
 
Anyway, I do hope they get to this soon.  Considering I've been playing nothing but SC2 for the last week (And will continue for the foreseeable future) I'd love to have my achievement tracked :)

@SamDrugbringer: Haha, sc2 is all I have been playing myself and without GB updating that it looks like I am not playing games.
