online dvd & game rental companies? & any input on gameznflix.com???

Hey all,

Looking to reconnect to an online dvd rental place (thought of netflix first off) then realized I also like to rent xbox games too, so when I saw this place mentioned in another thread on another forum, it seemed like the best of both worlds...

gameznflix.com is the companys name, has anyone here actually USED their service and if so can you tell me was it good, fast, reliable etc etc?

I live in East Lansing Michigan btw, and read they have a kentucky and a los angeles distribution center so far with more coming soon, so maybe if I get them out of kentucky it will not be as long as some of those other online rental places coming from california...

Probably gonna give it a try here but also wondered are there any other online rental places like this (that do games and dvds)...

Bill

DVDAvenue.com has movies, PS2/PSX/XBOX games and porn. I've tried them a few times, but I've never been impressed with their service. I live just one state away, and their delivery times are very slow. Even worse is their availability. You can put 100 items in your queue, and they'll have maybe 10%-20% in stock. But it's hard to find a place that does the rental hat trick (games/movies/porn).

Regarding gameznflix.com, before branching out to include movies, they were a games-only rental site called veegeez.com. So you might want to search and see if anyone has experience with that company.

I have been giving DVDAVENUE a try here and yeah like you said it is nice they rent games, movies and adult, but 80% of my que is out of stock (only takes 3 available to ship tho), so I have a large que, will probably stay with them for a month here then dump them (mainly due to lack of new xbox games)...

I live in MI they are in MA, got my first 3 titles in 2 days yet 4 days after mailing them out they still haven't checked them in on their end, and probably won't even see them checked in till Monday (another 2 days) so 6 days to get a movie returned and checked in is not gonna work for me...

Just wish there was a good company out there offering games and movies...

Someday maybe,,,

I joined these guys yesterday to try their free trial. We will see how it goes. I can tell you this though, I hate their site already! It doesn't give much info on the dvd's or games, plus it doesn't tell you if a dvd/game is out or not and doesn't give wait times. I also emailed them to asked them a question, I have yet figured out what in the world their response is saying. It was so unclear I thought I was receiving a response from a 6 year old. Anyway, just my experience thus far.

well my month with dvdavenue is just about up, (june 3rd), and lack of titles and 90% of my que being LONG WAIT is causing me to cancel...

Still up in the air on gameznflix, now that it has been a good month or so has anyone got feedback on them yet good or bad?

Bill

Might even just go to that gamefly.com (mainly im interested in newer xbox titles vs movies or older titles).

Gameznflix.com just flat out sucks! Their queue system is horrible, doesn't even tell you if there's a wait on a dvd/game or not. The site is very slow. I signed up for three out and I only received one, the other stayed as being ordered for you and never were shipped. My suggeston is stay away.
