After looking on here in deals, then seeing the link from dealspwn showing that Gamesbasement was the cheapest online supplier of Portal 2 @ £23.99 I placed an order for my littlun a week ago.
I checked yesterday in my account with them to see if it had shipped yet (it hadn't) and tried to telephone them to ask when it would be. (The answer machine just said "our lines are open between 9am and 5pm" - and then cut off - despite the call being made between those times. So I also used their email "contact us" which I've not received a reply to either...... So..........
I had a search on here to see if they had any deals posted, to be met with "do not post any deals for Gamesbasement".....
So what gives?
You promoted them in Dealspwn...... but saying "dodgy dealer" here?
There seems to be a conflict of advice? Are they dodgy? Did they self promote? Just dont like them? Or what?
Anyone used them? Are they reliable or to be avoided? (Obviously a bit late for this order and my littlun will have to wait longer than he had hoped and later than release date - but if they are to be avoided, at least this post will enlighten anyone else not to fall in the same trap as me!).
Is it not about time that the reason "banned" companies get that status is known to members? I expect most of us wouldnt give too monkies about "self promo" which is the usual reason...... but anything else.... surely you should give us the nod?
Feel free to move to feedback if that needs to be answered there by admin as its a general question, not just relating to gamesbasement and my Portal 2 order.
