    Yeah, I think achievements are built into the client, but of course the games need to be activated online first.

    IRRC you can earn achievements but not record game time (total hours of playing)

    This is what I noticed too. Everything offline isn't timestamped. Achivements update when you go online after getting it (but they will never be timestamped).
