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

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.
- You need to be at least Bronze Star to participate. Regular GameTZ trade rules apply.

- No price means free. No PayPal needs to be involved, but can be used to offer higher up items. e-Currency is OK.
- Trying not to put more limits than needed, when crap happens, we will try to work it out.

Ugh yeah early console build quality usually isn't the best. For now @Lunar is sending me some kind of external fan. If it comes to it, the game store I was at does basic repairs for $30. Hopefully any/all of that solves it, because I really don't want to buy a pro yet. I did get through a problematic spot for the system in Uncharted by just running a floor fan, so if push comes to shove..........

Yeah that's pretty much how game stores work for the most part. The one I frequent is the most fair here by a mile in terms of rates. The prices on anything old and in demand suck everywhere though, a couple of the stores just pay like...10% cash. I don't know how they get anything. Credit is best used on new stuff of course. Easily converted to cash if that's what I wanted to do, just buy a new release game.

The one I go to is jammed as is another place with crapty rates but a great location. However when the price boom first started happening there were a bunch here relative to the population and many of them did close up.

I like going to browse as well. One local chain that cut down on locations recently and "re-invented" (read: now selling vinyl, trendy shirts and funko pops) and had a grand re-opening really fudgeed up their browsing experience. Before the movies were neatly separated by format and genre, including anime being off by itself. When they re-opened all the damn movies and tv shows were jammed together in loose alphabetical order. Completely killed my desire to go there. Oh well, I'm sure they are selling loads of funko pops.

@Wheels617 I may just open er up and do just that plus clean it out with some compressed air.

Also this post was way too long, I apologize to anyone that read it.

I tried so hard to find something to justify spending $75+ on eBay, and I'm in the I-don't-really-like-it position of being unable to. Unless I can find multiples of what I'm looking for from the same seller, everything I'm interested in (Zelda, Actraiser 1 and 2, 7th Saga, a few others) are generally $30 or less. So together they add up to a chunk. Anything more expensive than $50 I literally can't justify the purchase (R-Type 3, even at $120, is a nonstarter. $65 for Knights of the Round? Gedouddahere).

For the record, if someone's got a lot with Zelda, Actraiser 1/2 and/or 7th Saga, I'm certainly in the market.

I just look for sellers with free shipping in their prices so everything factors in to the discount.

I got a new PlayStation 3 Mad Catz Fight Pad(Ken though wry smile but with bonus headband!), Mischief Makers cart, and Gundam 00 Complete Season One on DVD, added up to $77 minus $15, ohhhh yea it feels good to discount yes

Well, you know how wishy washy of a dog I can be. Now that I've got a Super Nintendo, you know, I want games. raspberry

It's alright, I've got plenty of carts to keep me busy. Want to beat First Samurai this weekend but it's kind of a tough game. Worked super hard for some time and I got to see the message "STAGE 2"

I've got lots of nice stuff, Super Famicom Metroid came in (literally the exact same as the US cart! When you start a new game it defaults to English, I was giggling), I've got the SFC versions of SCV4, Contra Spirits and what I THINK is a Parodius game, can't read Japanese but the text looks familiar inbound some time later this month probably. Nosferatu's on its way and I just bought Mystical Ninja SNES.

Lemme start by stating that I'm definitely not in the market for Knights of the Round (Super Nintendo). But, if I was, I'd help justify its recently inflated price by reminding myself that's more or less what I would've paid at KB Toys or Toys "R" Us back in the day. Sadly, it's that sort of twisted logic that's kept my video game habit going longer than the Energizer Bunny. dead face

$50's my hard limit, I'm even instating that on new games now. ARMS can be thanked for that. Was fun for one day when it was quickly forgotten.

I may do a slow build-up on SNES, but I'm keeping that to $40 or less per month. I'd love to find Actraiser 1 and 2 in that range.

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.
- You need to be at least Bronze Star to participate. Regular GameTZ trade rules apply.
- Please wait until at least 2 layers of new scoops before pending trade.
- No price means free. No PayPal needs to be involved, but can be used to offer higher up items. e-Currency is OK.
- Trying not to put more limits than needed, when crap happens, we will try to work it out.

Happened to me once, so I learned to stop looking 30 minutes before coupon expires. Just not worth the effort.

This is the first time I am running into the eBay brick wall. So, one of my listings was "mis-categorized", apparently there is a Videogame manual category now(I did not know it existed).

So I listed one of my manuals under the category of just Videogames caused so much panic and anarchy, they had to restrict my selling privileges for 3 days.

And guess what, that fudging listing was fudging sold 3 days ago! (@Missile, it was Vandal Hearts II manual, I should have just tossed the damn manual out)

They sent out an "warning" to check ALL your listings, I only had 30 some listings but imagine some power sellers with 1000s of listings would have to recheck every single one?

And they didn't even bother to name which listings violated this HUGE policy in the message.

Good job butt-holes. I guess this is a heads up to you guys and also realization that in one instance eBay can take your elite seller status away for something as dumb as

listing Videogames in Videogames Merchandise to dodge fees, I don't do that but I know a ton of Japanese sellers do do that.

When I was running on full cylinders on Ebay as a powerseller reseller. I had all of my listings removed several times as Ebay changed policies, on shipping charges, etc. . They don't give a fudge how much they inconvenience sellers.

Also seeing as how I had near 9000 feedback and 99.7% and just completely banned me from selling ever again. They just don't give a crap. So I guess what I'm saying is, don't ever complain to me about Ebay.

I remember you mentioned that. What was the final straw for them?

The final straw was my declining performance. This was during the 2008 great depression. So you can understand my main source of income was based on middle class video game buyers. So I was distressed and performance dropped. I tried to argue hey man I have 99.7% life time ratings but no man when the robot decides you are done you are done.

On a positive note. I just started adding the uncheck mark uncheck, to all of the best of the best games on my collection list. These are the games I must play and beat. It's pretty neat. Maybe I'll start adding stars or something to the games I beat and uncheck mark on games I must beat. Any game I skip over without a check mark I could consider selling. I notice I have a lot of uncheck marks left, but also that I was willing to pass over some good games, because there are even better games on my want to play list.

You would think a warning for the first offense would suffice. How do I report people for putting their crapty custom cases under video games?

Good luck with those dvds. I was eyeballing some GiTS stuff but I don't trust dvds on eBay to not be fake, esp anime. Actually, there is an obvious bootleg that is more than one I was looking at that SEEMS legit. Speaking of GiTS did I mention the last time I brought this up how much I hate the Hollywood version? Oh I probably did, so I'll spare a rehash.

Oh do I wish $50 was my hard limit. I'm too weak for that though.

Lol, what is the fee difference? And yes Japanese sellers use other categories all the time, I assume there had to be a reason...this one makes a lot of sense.

Go to the listing and report item. I doubt eBay will do anything though.

Noooice!

I had to take a break given my PS4 issues. But I have so many random anime oavs and movies on dvd that I haven't watched yet, so I made a stack to try and start knocking them out this weekend while I wait for an external fan from @Lunar

@DiamondDave So I'm planning a GiTS marathon at some point. I'm safely skipping Solid State Society this time, but is Arise worth watching in your opinion? I've actually never seen it.

I actually haven't either. Haven't heard anything bad about it but take that lightly, I haven't really been looking. Let me know what you think!

Ok. It might be awhile, but I'll do my best to remember. I'm actually going to buy all this crap (first movie, innocence, SAC + 2nd GIG, likely Arise + New Movie).
