Darkest Star Games

Pulp, to me, is a genre that characterizes derring-do and odds-defying heroics.  The specific era and technology is irrelevant.

  This.  I also tend to see pulp as “2-fisted adventure”, often over the top and rarely realistic.  So also in this vein would be McGuiver, Tales of the Golden Monkey, a lot of the old kung-fu movies, The Saint (Roger Moore show) and maybe even Star Trek TOS.
