Only a couple hours and I am out of here until next week! W00t!

Of course, my friends at Stardock and Gas Powered Games will still be around and they’re cooking up so many different things that it’s agonizing waiting for it all.

Lots happening around here. I have to write 60,000 words between now and July 31st for a book I’m writing to make the publisher’s deadline. There will be a lot info on that later this Summer.

The Impulse team is about to put out a massive 4th of July sale.  Over the last couple of months people may not have noticed that Impulse has started getting the rest of the major publishers on board. Activision is on there with Prototype and Call of Duty 4. Ubi Soft is on there with Prince of Persia, Farcry 2, etc.  Other titles are arriving as fast as the team can get them up.

With Demigod, we continue to formalize our the plan with developer Gas Powered Games on what additions and changes to make to the game over the coming months.  Pretty much every significant item that’s been brought up is on our list. Other journals talk about plans for v1.2 and beyond so I won’t spend time on that.  In the near term, v1.1 updates are the focus.

With one of the upcoming v1.1 updates, we are looking at having a tournament week once we’re happy with the robustness and fidelity of the stat system in the game. What we’d do is email everyone who has the game and let them know about it and have live updates on how it’s going.

Really though, that’ll be a warm up to what we are likely to see with v1.2 since 1.2 will have robust replay viewing support and such and then people can post the results from different games and such.

Anyway, I’ll be out of touch for a few days. Don’t burn the place down while I’m gone.  Have fun!

Hmm.. Ubisoft you say. Any chance they will put Anno 1404 on there without their nasty copy protection?

Maybe Ubisoft & Activision could release their games for Europe on Impulse.

we’re happy with the robustness and fidelity of the stat system in the game.

 

sry fragbot but....NOT

 

still happens that matches dont even show up. also when host gets a split(this doesnt happens often anymore but accures!) he will still get win and all other will get lost. (f.E. http://pantheon.demigodthegame.com/game/692051/player/38730/ )

 

but ure fixing the right things, idols selling, hol abuse, its quite a fun to play now

It helps if you read what Brad wrote, firegoesmp0w:

We are looking at having a tournament week once we’re happy with the robustness and fidelity of the stat system in the game.

sry my english isnt my native language... but as i can read, there are two sub-sentences in this senctence....

 

so as i understand u want to have a tournament(phanteon?) once a week... and the seconds says that the stat system is stabile, which is just not true, its has gotten better, but when 1/4 match isnt counted its not robust ² me. but that can change in the eye of the betrayer :/

Once they are happy with the robustness of the system there will be a tournament week.

No one commented on this?

That's the part I'm most excited about in the entire post!

I think it's a real shame that FB is reported to no longer be taking so much of an active role in the DG forums. The level of support and feedback has been awsome. Enjoy the break FB, you've no doubt earnt it.
