Other Game Informer Hints At Possible Half-Life 3 Reveal During 2011

As we all know, Game Informer and Valve are bros.

What gaming publication had exclusive information and screenshots of Portal 2 way back in April on one of its issues, and had their own Portal 2 Hub through which they continued to release Portal 2 info on their website? Game Informer, of course.

Valve Games Now Available On GameStop’s “Impulse” Digital Distribution Platform

Other Valve Games Now Available On GameStop’s “Impulse” Digital Distribution Platform

The world of digital distribution business is a wild one indeed. You know… “Dog Eat Dog”, and all that good stuff. And all that dog food s**t is starting to affect the brick-and-mortar game industry as well. Which is why in March of 2011, GameStop acquired Impulse, a digital distribution platform previously operated by Stardock. And now, Impulse is doing pretty well for itself, and in certain departments, it performs far better than Steam. But I can assure you I’m totally not talking about pricing.

But I digress: there’s loads of digital distribution platforms. Some have come and gone, some are still alive after years in the business, and others have just been born. Which is why it’s so surprising that Impulse has just entered an interesting business arrangement with Valve. For the first time ever, Valve games can be purchased on a digital distribution service that’s not Steam.
