Sent a quick message to Games TM, suggesting an update on the GG.
Got a nice reply from Ashley Day, saying they were thinking of doing just that.
So- Customers of GG, or ex-customers, feel free to send your stories to Ashley, it may help him in a review of the system. Interesting footnote is that Blaze promised to send him one to review, and haven't yet...

It would appear Blaze are modelling themselves on Sony.

Big shame about the Game Gadget. Been watching from the shadows hoping this would be a great little unit for retro gaming, but sadly doesnt seem to be that way and their customer PR is a total nightmare. Staying well clear of this one

I would like to see article on this from somebody within the media, however, I suspect that they wouldn't glean much information from Blaze themselves as all their employees would be under instruction.
Oh and if you want to do little social experiments on our forum don't post about them on your own you plum - Darren@Retro Gamer

True...but I've invited him to check out this forum for a start, explained some of the issues some have had, and explained their outrageous latest attempts at 'damage control'...and if anyone wants to add something they should fire some info their way-they get enough info of that nature it WILL let them know something is up regardless of what Blaze's propaganda tells them...and they do sound a little exasperated waiting for the GG from Blaze to review so I get the feeling they may have had their suspicions all wasn't well anyway.

An update from Ashley at Games Tm...'weirdly', as they said, they have suddenly received an email from Blaze and may have a unit to review...! So watch that space I guess.

How seemingly appropriate they've now given Doom away as freeware for the Game Gadget...

This made me chuckle. I'd like to request everyone post pics of their pets pooping on their Game Gadgets :lol:

Emailled Games Master mag and suggested an update to their initial review too.
And noticed a guy from Eurogamer has appeared on the GG forum looking to borrow a machine for a review, as Blaze has not got back to them... :lol:
Better be a good review or he'll get banned as well... :wink:
