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

So I bought the Capcom Humble Bundle, it came with a 50% off SFV, despite having it on PS4, I bought SFV for about $18(10% discount for having Humble Monthly, I highly recommend it)
Playing some newer characters now that I get to mess with Rookies and Bronzes. Ken is super cheezy lol, come challenge me peeps!

I pulled out that 360 4gb yesterday and played some Raiden Fighters Aces on it to test everything - it made me want to have my 360 hooked up and out again for sure! I didn't have my 360 hooked up, literally had my 250gb and 4gb in a closet.

I want to transfer my saves from the 4gb to the 250, but otherwise I am good to say goodbye to the little guy.

I didn't realize until some research just now that there was a third hardware resdeisgn - the 360 E. So I have a few 360 originals (white, red ring risks, one already broken), and then these two working solid and good shape S models, but this is not the E model - to be clear. I am not sure what the benefit of the E model would be, but this is the S model

I bought a sealed Saturn game recently and the seller would only offer first class or priority flat rate envelope. It hasn't arrived yet but... RIP game, probably.

When the inevitably rerelease it, sure. We're already up to Twilight Princess in terms of games that have been re-released. I bet we see a Skyward Sword on Switch and complete BotW in the far flung future raspberry

Having played Ryu for like 60 some levels I think, Ken is so much faster. Though his attacks are weak as fudge.

Alright, got Kirby's Dream Land 3 in today from an eBay Bucks gift code plus $14, took pictures and sold it for $80 so I've gotta bring it home tonight and beat it before I go to bed so I can ship it tomorrow... in 3 hours the journey begins. It's in my short list of games no Everdrive can play that I want to beat. And time is money, so obviously the day it came in I had to sell it immediately.

broken heart This broke my heart a little to read, due in part to Dream Land 3 being on the short list of games missing from my HAL collection (though I can play it on the Wii) and also because it's a reminder of why I don't come around here much any more.

$3 local beers at trivia tonight, so there will be some cheap booze at least. "Good booze" is lost on me. I don't like almost any liquor and my favorite beer is Stella.

Yeah, doesn't take much. I remember when we were doing the tourney when it first came out I had the best capture out of everyone who was running, and back then I was using a 750Ti, had a fairly smooth 60fps at 1080p.

An unreasonable amount of practice. Also falling off the edge isn't as bad as you think.

Plus it's heavily used and from a power seller. I've always waited until games looked like they were legitimately being sold by someone who's owned it for many years and taken care of it. IE a game that hasn't passed from user to game store to user to game store.
