Will be interesting to see if Limited Run Games gets in in this.

from the FAQ
"Will there be online leaderboards and reward/trophy/achievements?
"Absolutely! Our online leaderboard system is very unique and actually ties into our reward system. Leaderboards are not only determined globally, but also by countries and regions. It is also further broken down by time/date, such as weekly, monthly, yearly, and “all-time”.

I agree, the more support for offline (single and multiplayer), the more I am interested. There's not many ways a game can loose my interest than having too heavy a focus on online-only support, which doesn't last long for most games past the release window.
But wouldn’t it be cool if you could make a custom leaderboard, to just include your personal friends? Imagine going online each day to see which friend bopped your recent high score from the day before. Or even a leaderboard consisting just of forum members? That would be fun.
