Be warned, folks.
There's a new "groupon for gamers" deal around going by the name of "Galaxy Games" and/or "Galaxy Gobbo."
This is Justin Wu - or he is, at least, associated with it.

You have been warned.

Can we provide some sourcing for this? Perhaps the facebook page?

Agreed- the site may be disorganized and unclear, but I'm not seeing any evidence of anyone named Justin Wu. What do you know?

Well, here is Justin Wu promoting and offering a coupon for it on Facebook:

And ya'll--this is a public service announcement. It's not my money in your pocket if you decide to disregard this info and deal with Galaxy Gobbo or their partner blog. Caveat emptor.

Thanks for the heads up. I know of at least one podcast that advertises for him. I'll spread the word.
Please understand that in any deal, until we have agreed to trade terms, that neither of us has committed to a trade or purchase. I will still be accepting offers from others for any items until all trade terms are negotiated and we both explicitly state our agreement to them.
Please feel free to review my references
Not a reference, but another satisfied trader!

I've already passed this on to Lost Hemisphere Radio, if that's the one you're thinking of :) better to have more people talking, though!
I want to state, though, that my email was not a condemnation of the service, just a heads up that there's a name associated with it that might raise a red flag. I've heard nothing bad about this group thusfar, and would be curious to hear some testimonials, good or bad, about it.

As far as we know, Galaxy Games is only associated with Justin and not run entirely by him.
He does stuff for them and as part of them, but he does not appear to be the only one involved.

I'm not saying this makes GG any better or worse. I'm just clarifying.

Ladies and Gentlemen, as pertains to Lost Hemisphere, the Galaxy Gobbo site is at the time of writing a paid sponsor of Lost Hemisphere; that's the extent of our involvement.

I don't have any insight into the workings of Galaxy Gobbo, their staff, policies or procedures. Any questions you may, I can only suggest at this time that you address them to the email address provided at the site.

Thanks
Gdaybloke
