Newsbrief: Blizzard is now offering free, downloadable versions of its early games The Lost Vikings and Rock N' Roll Racing via its Battle.net service.

Both games have been modified to run on contemporary hardware. The Lost Vikings runs on the DOSBox emulator but seems otherwise unchanged, while Rock N' Roll Racing runs on the ZSNES emulator and is billed as a 'lite' version of the original Super Nintendo game with just three playable tracks.

Anyone with a Battle.net account can download the games, along with Blackthrone and the Starcraft Anthology, via the Battle.net Game Management page.

Had the original Rock 'N Roll Racing, amazing game. Does the lite version allow you to play with Olaf if you hold L+R and Select while scrolling the driver selection menu?
