new Thread Description
This thread was originally created to encourage traders here at GTZ to do more trading, especially retro related stuff. It has turned into a lot more and I am so grateful to everyone who contributed to this thread and have kept it going for nearly 6 months now. I hope this thread will continue to thrive and everyone who reads/participates in this thread will gain some value or knowledge out of it.

We will still have Trade lists up here, though it's been a while since anyone updated. I encourage everyone to look over their lists and post updates.
There is also a section for gorgeous pictures of game rooms that active participants of this thread have shared. Feel free to share some pics of your collection or game room.
I will be adding another section for information regarding video quality of retro gaming systems on modern displays and how to improve them.
There is rather some extensive discussion regarding how to improve the display quality of retro gaming systems and if you are new to this like I am, you will find it very informative.

Old Topic Description


GTZ has become a marketplace where the most commonly traded commodity is PayPal. I want to start an effort to get some trades going and to discuss some good games perhaps you never heard of or interested in but want to discover/know more of. For example, I just got intto shmups after years of ignoring the genre and I love to discover new(to me) and rediscover old ones(Sonic Wings comes to mind).

No pressure here. Feel free to discuss anything retro. Perhaps throw out some WTTF targets and what you have to offer. I am sick of browsing people's year old Available lists.

Some examples:

- WTTF/WTB/LF
- What you think is awesome game/series/whatever
- Potential games you have up for trade
- Pics of what you have/what you would love to get/what you think is the bestest awesomest game ever
- Show off your latest finds/adds to your collection

Continuing the physical cleansing, this one is particularly hard. I'm gonna have one more playthrough of MKR and let it loose in the wild. I doubt anyone here is a bigger baller than @ErickRPG for mint stuff.

Prob throw it on eBay with a ridic price tag and see what happens.

Too bad @Missile just paid like $350 for a copy prob less mint than this one frown

I never really liked the anime all that much. I think I'd rather watch Inuyasha than 3 high school girl Sailor Squad.

I think manual warp is pretty common for WD games. Most of mine have it because I went for the cheapest cib I could find. Or maybe just DF can't remember.

It will happen to any Saturn game stored horizontally, not just WD titles. Of course games with thicker manuals (like WD titles) it will happen quicker.

eBay has loads. Probably much easier than finding them here. Especially cheap games that are also good.

I'm surprised those go for anything at all, being in Japanese and whatnot.

You don't really need much Japanese for REs. I remember importing RE3 and beating it without any help before the US even had a release date.

That Star Soldier game is kinda meh. I should have grabbed the PSP compilation when it was cheap, yikes.

Also I was going to see if I still had extra CIB Dreamcast keyboards for you, but no need now I see.

I had bought like 5 or 6 CIB DC keyboards for $4.99 each back when no one gave a crap about the Dreamcast. I think I'm down to one left, but I might have two.

Got myself a copy of Blackthorne, since none of the BINs for Super Bowling were near enough to market. I do see that getting the import 32X games are going to be a dog...

Ooh, I'd be interested in one if you have an extra one; I don't need CIB even.
