Like the other digital distribution companies the folks at Stardock are running a series of holiday sales leading up to Christmas next week. The company is probably going to have some good deals on games like Sins of a Solar Empire
but they are forcing users to download
and keep their Impulse client running in order to gain access to the deals. This is great if you already have the client running in the background but for everyone else it's a bit of a hassle.
Personally I'd rather see the deals on their website
or posted on their Twitter account
rather than having to deal with installing an application but that's just me. I'm also the guy who kills the Steam client as I'd rather not waste extra cycles having it run in the background. Am I just being lazy or is this a real issue? Let me know in the comments.
