Warning - DO NOT buy anything from RedSpot games
« on: 20:56, 24 February 15 »
Hi Guys,


I hate to do this, but after over 6 months of trying to get my copy of  "Limited Edition - Windstärke 12"  out of redspot games I have given up.


Please DO NOT order anything from these guys. they have taken a substancial amount of my money, failed to deliver the game, and never respond on their support ticketing system or answer the phone.


I know you live and learn, but in this case I learned the hard way. In future I'll only buy CPC retro ;)  redspot seem to me to present the worst in the retro arena.


THanks

If you don't get it for Dreamcast, then we have to do a CPC version!  :laugh:

I have bought a couple of things from them in the past... "Rush Rush Rally Racing" and "Wind & Water battles" both for the Dreamcast, their delivery times were a couple of months, so this time I did not think that there weren't coming t until it was too late to get a PayPal refund. that is €80+ I won't ever see again :'(

Over 6 months since I ordered it, look what was sat on my doorstep (Well Hidden in a half full sack of coal actually) waiting for me when I got home from work today.

WOW, I am a happy bunny, Now for a weekend of Blasting and 6 nations Rugby.


I am not sure if it was the posting here, or the endless torrent of 'Support Tickets' and Phone messages that eventually persuaded them to post it. But whaterver it was worked.

Maybe they have been so slow because they got flooded by complaints about being a bit slow.  :laugh:

I expect he was (and probably still is) heavily intoxicated from celebrating the rugby result.

lol. Drowning my sorrows as an Englishman living in Ireland. Still Connacht (the local outfit) had a stunning result on Sunday, and 'our' number 12 (Robbie Henshaw) was man of the match at the aviva, so no complaint really. England were shite and were totally outplayed on the field.
