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

No idea, someone cancelled a trade with me and gave me that code. I have no use for it because you can't use PP on Amazon so I rarely buy from them.

To me at least, this one is better than the last one. I could already have the first 6 Mega Man games for like $5. Actually, that had 7 and 8 as well. At least this gets 9 available physically and 10 available for less than that Capcom derp pack.

MM9 and 10 required extensive emulation to get up and running, honestly I've never seen it done. I'm always down to support physical releases (or digital releases) if they make sense, and this definitely does. Huge boon for PC retail. I'm usually the first to boo a re-release, but this one makes more sense than Legacy did.

@DiamondDave If these are proper PC ports I'll be damned impressed. Not holding my breath though. And yeah I'm just crapting with you, you saw in my last post I was talking about how it does make good sense and how I'm happy that 9 will be available physically and 10 outside of Capcom Essentials which still runs $20+ used.

Oh ya, CDX is definitely more delicate when it comes to CDRs. None of my Verbatim CDRs work on it. But Memorex works fine.

makes me wonder if they'll break up the x series as well, x1-3 on one compilation, and 3-6 on another (ps1/saturn versions), and then never release 7? :P

Weird. My stance on this is to just feed it what it likes, about all you can do. I haven't had any issues with PCE CD or Saturn yet, but I also haven't had to buy more CDRs yet either so it's all been one brand.

I was hoping to replace the monstrous Tron with the CDX, but it seems like I will have to see what the issue is and decide. If it's indeed the CDR's brand, that's fine.

Yea so far, Memorex is king.

Ordered some Memorex yes

It's my number 2 game of all time behind only it's holiness the witcher 3.

It is SO good, and that limited edition is so sick. I will have to pick up a shujin bag later to rock as a laptop bag.

PoR was the one that got me hooked on FE. They are old style no doubt, but not as difficult from what I remember of the earlier titles. I have a tough time quantifying my all time favourite games beyond the top 5 or so, but these are definitely up there for me. I like them a lot. Be sure to play on hard. Trololol.

It's probably the best one could own.

I like SMG, Last Story, Arc Rise, NSBM, Klonoa etc... but they are not close to RD for me.

nice, looking forward to them!

you are going to love PlayStation 4 if you haven't had one yet, this gen is killing it with great games and great experiences. witcher 3 and P5 are my number 1 and 2 games ever, and HZD is way up there too along with Nier Automata.

We might just both be Fire Emblem fanboys but I'm inclined to agree.

Yeah man I'm a cheapass so this will be my first one. I don't plan to ever sell it. I'll likely get a pro when the price goes down and just have both.

I've already played Witcher 3 on PC, it's AWESOME HOLYEFF bewbs MCGEE.

I plan to tear into Disgaea 5 and by the time I'm done with it I'll have some more games lined up. Yakuza 0, Uncharted 4, Yakuza Kiwami (when it comes out), Mafia III, maybe Bloodborne (not a huge Souls guy), MGS V, Batman: Arkham Knight etc...
