I'm really not sure what to think of this.
While it's true I never used Impulse to actually buy anything (nor steam or GG or any other online distrib), I was looking forward to getting some tittles off of Impulse after I get my new comp this fall. Now???
Well I don't have any compelling reason to stick with Impulse as far as I can see. Hell no reason to stick with anyone at this point. Not like that matters to anyone, and not like I won't use Impulse if it seems to be the best fit for me still.
I guess it's kind of disappointing to me, since I do like Stardock, and would have liked to have supported them (however indirectly) though using Impulse, but at this point it doesn't matter to them where I do my shopping I suppose. I've also never really bought the whole 'what happens in 10 years when the site goes down and I can't play my 10 year old game' logic so that part of it is immaterial to me, trust for gamestop? No earthly idea whether I should or shouldn't. Sure, I don't go to their stores anyway, who's to say they won't get the DD part right? It's not as though Impulse it going to start stocking only Wii games is it?
