My favorite piece of beta news, though, has to be the new Pet Battle themes. As someone who first got into Blizzard games with the earlier Warcraft entries, hearing the dulcet tones of the original series human and orc music just gives me all kinds of warm fuzzy. I can almost hear that footman wishing he were sailing.
