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

Have you seen what Shovel Knight for Vita currently sells for? In spite of other physical versions too. I'm not saying to invest your life savings, but for anyone that wants to try the game or likes it and wants a physical, I don't think it's a bad purchase at all.

I know it's $10 to download. raspberry

It still kinda kills me how much people are willing to pay out for digital content when it's stamped on a disc.

I paid $4.99 for Undertale. No one wants digital games at full price either raspberry

I got Tales of Hearts R for $22-something at GameStop because it was cheaper than the download. And if I don't like it... Maybe someone else will.

Don't get me wrong, Undertale's a lovely game, but $10's about where I'd cap it. Physical for $25's a bit ludicrous to me. Ducktales Remastered was a licensed release and even that was what... $15, 20 max?

Probably limited interest but anyone want RGB-Modded Jungle Green N64 with Everdrive 2.5?

I'm thinking $125 for the Jungle Green system w/expansion pak, matching controller, Scart cable, AC.

$100 for the Everdrive.

$225 shipped anyone?

That's honestly a good price. But knowing this crowd and N64s I wouldn't hold your breath.

Yea, I figured as much but I know @PlayYing has a thing for Funtastic colors and @ErickRPG is fond of N64 as well(though this is not "mint")

Will go up on eBay tonight probably.

Tempted by the N64 Everdrive, but not enough to finance it.

I'd probably trade out the ass for it though!

Record of Lodoss War blu rays came in with some of my GameStop order (1/3 so far btw). Fudge, this is STILL the best hand-drawn animation I've ever seen.

I really wish they didn't throw in the other dvds to jack up the price. I'd buy just the OAV blus for like...$30... Maybe it will get a classics release.

Anyway, happy watching, that's some good crap.

It's not so bad, I've got a reason to actually drag my feet through the TV series now. (It does have a sick opening)

If it was that or nothing, I'll take this. In Japan they can probably get away with selling the OVA by itself for buko bucks; here, that doesn't fly anymore. And I'm positive Kadokawa was like "This needs to be premium priced, period" because this is pretty much their gem accomplishment.

And I'm not kidding about pricing on this in Japan.

Yeah I already have both on DVD so it's a tougher sell for me to rebuy dvds I already own for like $70. I also only paid like $25 for them total, furthering the tough sell point. Lol.

Oh and @DiamondDave let me know how that mining rig turns out fam. wink

Of course it has to be the one game i'd never been able to get my hands on.

Seriously, even in the so called "golden age" of collecting, that thing and every vol that wasn't 1 or 3 was being scalped to hell and back.
