Covering (but not limited to) all of my thoughts on the PC gaming scene.

Today marked the day I finally made use of Stardock's new digital distribution system Impulse. I purchased the second expansion pack to Gal Civ 2 and decided rather than using Stardock's website as I have in the past I would do it through Impulse.

All I can say was the process was as smooth as can be. Once I got my payment sorted the game was instantly recognised by Impulse and I was able to start downloading it instantly. Even the serial and relevant registration info was automatically filled out for me.

The only problem now is the download can't come quick enough (no thanks to Australia's sub-par internet infrastructure).


Congratulations Brad Wardell and all at Stardock on Impulse. I'd definately say its accomplished the goals you guys have set out for it (such as an invisible and unobtrusive registration process for games).
