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

Yes the complete edition has everything. @lunar.

In a weird method to the build...it reads as a different save file... you can't play the dlc off that disc with your vanilla witcher save unless they've patched it or something.

If you've played through the first release you're prob better off buying the dlc unless you want to play through again.

gog has the Game of the Year Edition for $25, not sure if its the same as Complete

https://www.gog.com/game/the_witcher_3_wild_hunt_g...

Also, I think someone asked about Witcher 1 and 2, they are both on sale and should be about $5 for both on gog.

Retro Thread Pilfer & Scoops Program
Here is how it works:

Offer up an item with value more than $10, shipping is paid for by the person offering. But before you can lock in the scoop, you have to offer up a "pilfer" of your own worth $10 or more in value.
- 24 hours to try to get someone to take your item. If no one takes it after 24 hours, it will revert back to the previous deal so someone else can have a chance. Feel free to change it up before your time expires.
- No other limitations other than you need to be at least Bronze Star to participate. Regular GameTZ trade rules apply.
- While there is no upper limit, but for a general guideline, I would say $20-$30 should be the upper limit.
- Please wait until at least 2 layers of new scoops before pending trade.
- No PayPal needs to be involved. e-Currency is OK.
- Trying not to put more limits than needed, when crap happens, we will try to work it out.

I'm having a collection crisis. I want to purge again.

And after all that sick Japanese Dreamcast stuff came in too.

I think I want to go down to the PS3, Switch, Sega CD, Gamecube and PC. I think I want everything else gone.

Eh, it's PC Engine. I get that bug six times a year.

Six games and I've got what I consider the perfect Dreamcast collection too. Mars Matrix, Gunbird 2, Giga Wing 1 and 2, Street Fighter Zero and Jojo. All it'd take to polish it off. But even that's like, $240.

Yeah. At least outside of the system, I haven't spent much money on it and I've been playing through games on cdr. Stuck on a Ys IV boss currently. Going to try again tonight.

I was just sitting on that reply, ha. I can understand, I've cleared my collection a bit. At to those that said mid life crisis, I don't know man. I think it's just as you get older you realize material goods aren't as important. I wouldn't call that a "crisis", I would call that wisdom.

@Lunar there is no need for a Faicom Disk System if one has an everdrive? Iirc that's why I sold mine to @sharif , that and the belts are notorious for breaking.

That's right. Who needs to maintain a fragile ass Famicom Disk System when we are throwing away other better systems.
