News Comments > Impulse Weekly Top 10
6. Re: Impulse Weekly Top 10 May 12, 2010, 10:53  Island Dog 
 
Sins often tops the list because aside from being a popular game, the micro-expansions are just $10 and various editions of Sins are often on sale.

Just because they are on the top of the list doesn't mean 3rd party games aren't selling well, just the opposite in fact.

I'm not sure about your definition of "bloatware", but one of the main points of Reactor is that Impulse does not have to be bundled with a game, so other distributors can carry the title without issue.

The Elemental beta is available for people who pre-order. Impulse::Reactor beta is in beta with key partners at this time.

The current betas are still 2D, I don't believe the 3D will be turned on until after beta 2, but I would have to verify that.

This is the latest roundup that might interest you. http://forums.elementalgame.com/372152

There should be another beta round very soon, although I don't have an exact date at the moment.

I thought late summer/fall was always something that was publicly mentioned. But as another poster said, Elemental will be released when we are happy, and will not be rushed out.

In other words, Elemental is going to be sweeet!

Yes, that is me. I am not a developer though, I am the evangelist for Stardock.

Anyways, I'm not here to argue about this situation, our goal is to make Impulse the best experience for PC gamers and software apps as well.

@Prez - I will inquire more about the archiving issue.

Not sure what you are referring to. You don't need to have Impulse running to play a game.

News Comments > Stardock's DRM Goo

(Since you're here) Are we getting a totally different, new version of Impulse (when "phrase 3" is mentioned)? I sure hope so...

I wouldn't say totally completely different, but there are a number of improvement, updates, both under the hood and UI-wise as well.

Then there was that time - here on Blues - where I said that Internet DRM activation is going to be the norm before long. Here we are.

Personally, I don't consider something activating online once to say "hey, I'm authentic", is really a big deal. It's pretty much invisible, it doesn't restrict usage, and as far as Goo goes, after that it's done.

Is it just me, or is Stardock blatantly trying to compete directly with Steam, in a "quixotian" kind of way? For every Steam announcement, Stardock has to make one promising pretty much the same things.

I can assure you this is something that wasn't developed overnight in reaction to an announcement from Steam or anyone else. Stardock has been in the digital distribution business for quite a long time.

That's an interesting way to put it.

Lets also remember developers do want IP protection methods, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. We are trying to simplify the process and find a medium that makes both customers and devs/publishers satisfied.

News Comments > Impulse's Million Man March
26. Re: Impulse's Million Man March Mar 18, 2009, 12:58  Island Dog 
 
Custom fees are the responsibility of the purchaser, and to calculate the various custom fees, if any, would be huge task because they vary from country to country, and then even more variables come into play.

But to get back to the topic at hand, I wanted to share some specs about the PC Stardock is giving away.

Case: Ikonik RA-X10 Full Tower
Processor: Intel Core i7-965 Extreme Edition 3.2 GHz
RAM: 12 GB DDR3/1600 MHz Corsair

Monitor: 24" LCD Widescreen
Sound: Creative Labs SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatality Pro

Impulse has applications as well, including free ones. While Microsoft Office isn't on there at this time, we do have applications from Corel, Genie-Soft, AVG, and iolo, just to name a few.

We are also adding new games and applications on a regular basis to Impulse.
