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

If it comes with the wizard manual, I'd jump on it. That game begs to be played with the wizard manual, and wish I was able to have gotten it.

Extra irony is that the Sega Ages release in Japan were BUDGET titles for 2500 yen when they came out.

Well, they had a whole fudging roll of bubble wrap next to it so I figured worst case, it's suspended in bubbles and gets bumped around a bit in transit.

I was gonna upgrade the RAM up to a gig, too. It was gonna be my little CRT PCE. Man.

It's obviously the smartest thing to do, but for sixty bucks, I figured it was worth a shot. All the BIN listings are way too much money, some people want like, $130 for shipping which is absofudginglutely ridiculous.

Yeah worst case you would have got your money back eventually. I'm in the middle of dealing with that right now for an old motherboard that was basically doa. I got it to boot to bios like...once in 15+ tries. I told the seller it wouldn't boot at all because screw them, they sent me garbage.

The only way to really assure safe arrival for bigger things (this iMac is probably small enough to get safely) is to ship with a freight service which is balls expensive.

My first emulation experience was The Legend of Zelda on a GB emulator for Macintosh! They had all the kids running around all the stations in the career center, I found the photo lab, found a mac, saw it had internet (T1 speeds!) and I went to fudging town.

These came out significantly after so I'm pretty sure they can handle early emulation. I'm sure it's not amazing but with a gig of RAM I have no doubt it'd have SNES and lower covered. But just think about it.

My experience with this has been you might as well just buy them new. No one really even sells used copies and when it happens they generally aren't even much cheaper. I buy used almost exclusively but I bought almost all my Ghibli Blu-Ray new.

The hit detection in that game is so fudgeed. By the third game at least it was a bit improved, when I fudgeed up I was like "Well, I fudgeed that up." I was yelling at the TV trying to play Golden Axe.

Neither ... it's one of those games that like, because I collect games I feel obligated to want, but personally don't see why it's compelling. Something like Cubivore falls along side it in that category.

I beat Streets of Rage in a day. HIT detection.

Golden Axe has fudging NOOOOOOOOONE. Everything moves as fast as you, angles as fast as you and has higher priority on everything than you. Unless this is just a problem for the Blue Warrior, in which case he needs to be deleted because that was frustrating as fudging crap.

Got some eShop credit from whitefire and made an impulse buy.

It looked like Zelda/Valkyrie so...but from a quick stage 1 play, it's a bit repetitive.

Not a bad way to spend a few bucks on the Switch eShop. smile

I picked up a Japanese PSN card last weekend for benstylus' birthday. Due to some glitches with the email address I provided to Play-Asia, that particular surprise got spoiled. But he has Dangun Feveron now.

At first, I wasn't sure it was worth the ~$38 and subsequent hassle, but after seeing him smiling while enjoying his first shot (sorry) in years at one of his favorite Cave shooters... I can safely say it was worth it.

because nothing says "I love you" quite like buying your spouse some trippy shooter game they vaguely remember playing while in college because it's not $100 and they like it

For every time it sold for $250 + this year it has sold for $175-$200 in similar condition. Someone listed it for $90 BIN a few months ago but I missed it. That would have been a nice score. I got a copy of RayCrisis recently so I think that's the only thing I'm missing to having a complete WD set. A few are disc only though.

Does it include an oem ac adapter @ Gypsy? If not retrogamecave periodically makes a nice replacement unit if that helps you save a few bucks at auction. It also happens to be cross compatible with the CDX.

Kamiko's soundtrack makes me wanna play some Ninja Gaiden or Shadow of the Ninja

Hmm, listening to the NG soundtrack on youtube, I think I am thinking of the soundtrack to the 2nd game. Well, now I am wondering if I ever beat the first game.

NG? Ninja Gaiden? That first game was a dogy-dog to beat in one sitting. Second one I believe was a bit easier? I'd have to beat it again to know. Might be a good Facebook streaming project for the weekend but I'll probably perform worse than I did with NG, just because other than Stage 6 I was pretty much able to one-shot everything, I've played it so much over the years without actually beating it.

Actually, this might be a good chance for me to try a Youtube stream instead. Probably drop less frames than Facebook, they automatically cut it down to 30fps. If I do, I'll probably do a test before the weekend and have people look at it and tell me how it looks. I can probably set it up for VOD afterwards to boot. I'm sure there's some software to download, with the Facebook streaming I can go directly through ShadowPlay and I'm not sure that's an option for Youtube, but I'll dance the jig if it is.

I have tried Youtube streaming, its pretty good. Never tried FB though.

OK, I have a very good CIB copy of Rule of Rose I got recently, anyone interested for $175?

I checked HLTB and it says should be around 8 hours to beat. With my speed, will most likely take 1-2 weeks.

Once I am done, it's going up on eBay for $200+ unless it sells here first.

Let me know if anyone wants.

like I did with the PlayStation Portable, going to put this PlayStation up here and give this thread first go. conditions vary, some of the heavy hitters are great and some are less than great. ive had to get less picky to make gaming and collecting affordable lol.
I expect koudelka to be hot, always is, sadly it doesn't have the manual, and the cover art isn't great. ive had this game a couple times of the years and seen others and ive never seen a koudelka manual in my life other than on ebay lol, someone somewhere roll around in them like scrooge mcduck in the money bin.

conditions are on my available list, I can get pics and confirm specific details.

Azure Dreams
Beyond the beyond (disc only)
fear effect
fear effect 2
Kartia the word of fate (I thought it was world as a kid lol)
koudelka
Lok: soul reaver
Lunar SSSC (discs in custom ps2 size case with custom art and hardbound instruction book)
Lunar 2 EBC (discs in original case with hardbound manual)
Metal Gear solid
Ogre Battle march of the black queen limited ed. (disc only)
Rhapsody with soundtrack (discs only)
saga frontier
saga frontier 2
Tales of Destiny 2 (minty and nice, will have to wrestle lunar for it, work a three way trade with us to get him this one and you his if you don't care about it being spotless lol)
thousand arms (is complete, but doesn't have the stickers and hologram)


def pains me to get rid of these in a way, but space is a concern and I want to focus my physical collecting on stuff I will be able to play, and I played a lot of these back in the day and likely wont replay anytime in the next decade or two at this rate and I know here they will get good loving homes.

love to sell, helping fund kids sports, a switch and an OneX are the goals, but will def entertain trades especially from this group.

Nintendo DS may be coming next, and have some ridiculous items there too.

Sega rules.

I made a weird post awhile back about the PCE, Saturn and Dreamcast being similar consoles. They filled a different space. Kind of like Nintendo recently but you don't have the wide breadth of stuff those systems had (but Nintendo platforms are most assuredly different than the sameness that happens on PS4/XB1/PC). The PCE is obviously not by Sega, but really the Saturn feels like a spiritual successor to it.

Sega had a console that supported 640480 VGA made in 1998. Both the Genesis and the Saturn support RGB natively and it looks great. So many people have a negative conception of the Genesis looking brown because many models had poor composite which is a shame.

Looking at that PS1 list just made me notice that the Koudelka and Metal Gear Solid that I just found
where I put them recently but picked up years ago was not their original or a different format.
Was there PS1 games made for/in PS2 sized cases? Or are these custom?
I had stored them with some of my PS2 games because of that reason. My Koudelka has the correct PS1 size manual but is in a PS2 type/sized case with the PS2 sized cover. And my Metal Gear Solid is in a PS2 type/sized case with cover with a PS2 sized manual.

And thanks, this matches it perfectly and that's interesting that they did that. Looking into it more, apparently, It's the only one I have from the PS version of Essential Collection and I just happen to have Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance from the XBOX version of the Essential Collection. And the original version of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty for PS2.

"Interested in some sort of trade? I have DKC 2 and 3 CIBs"

Most indie retro roguelike fanboys seem to forget that those old devs were trying super effing hard (on some games anyway) within the limits that were enforced upon them by the hardware.

Ok ... so, I don't want to start any crap here, but I feel obligated to defend the image on the left. It's a shot from a game called Gravitation that was part of a DSiWare compilation called Alt-Play. Alt-Play was an anthology of the collected works of Jason Roher, a critically acclaimed indie game developer, best known for his (very short) life simulator, Passage (if you havent played it, take 10 min and go do so now here: http://hcsoftware.sourceforge.net/passage/ - it's free, short, and pound for pound one of the most meaningful games you'll ever play). So, Roher's "thing" is basically that he makes creative games with subject matter and themes that haven't really been addressed before, and typically doesn't make much money off of them. He is (usually) a one man team, where he does almost all of the development work, at all levels on his own, which means he doesn't really have the bandwidth to make these really elaborate, beautiful games, and typically resorts to a very simplistic style, just enough to convey the purpose behind the game.

If you aren't familiar with his work, again Passage is the best place to start, but I would also recommend trying to track down the very unique Diamond Trust of London for the DS (I think it is technically the last game released for the system, and one of the early Kickstarter successes), or his evil gambling game Cordial Minuet, which I hear is very good, but I can't bring myself to try because my family has a little bit of a problem with the whole gambling thing. Some of the other things that he has done that he is known for are releasing a single copy of a game on a USB that could only be played once by a single player and then passed on to another... releasing The Castle Doctrine (a burglary MMO) on on Steam at it's lowest price and promising to never sell the game for less than that, to buck the trend of delaying purchases for Steam sales .... and lives a life with his family with almost 0 ecological footprint... so overall, just being a solid human being.

One thing I want to make clear though - I am only defending this specific image, from this specific game, because of this specific developer. I generally give a solid thumbs down to most other retro-styled games (with some obvious exceptions, like Cave Story, which, in reality, could likely be the patient zero in this whole epidemic, since Pixel was really the one that brought back the whole aesthetic when that game was released.... oh and Jamestown also comes to mind because that's a solid shmup). At this point things have just gotten gimmicky, and speak to an eroding level of creativity in certain facets of the indie games scene.

@jsoncip38 Yeah when I was 6 my dad gambled away the family business when my mom and I were on vacation so that's a BIT of a sore subject for me too. And by a bit I mean...well...yeah.

I'll be honest I had no idea what game the one on the left even was. I just felt the image conveyed the point well. Sounds like this guy makes his games widely available for free, so yeah, I can't complain with that.

Agree on Jamestown. That's some good crap. As I mentioned before, Shovel Knight as well. I'm pretty sure I'll like Thimbleweed Park too. I'm almost not sure if it qualifies though, because it was made by two devs that cut their teeth developing games in the 90s and basically made a high quality late 80s/ early to mid 90s style adventure game.

But yeah, indies feel....samey, which sucks.

Rapid-fire reviews on Gamestop cheapies on Xbox 360 I've played so far:

Minecraft: Crap
Ninety-Nine Nights: Crap
Dark Sector: Controls and horizontal tearing ruin game, but it seemed like it might have not sucked if they released it proper
Bullet Witch: ...Surprisingly, interesting. Mechanics aren't brilliant and VAs are awful but I wanna play more.
Onechanbara: Crap
Remember Me: Actually surprisingly playable so far. Not great at anything but memory manipulation is fun. Shame Capcom lost is ass on this. Load times are awful tho so if you're gonna jump, don't fudging miss
Warhammer 40K Spice Marine: I love this fudging game.
Deus Ex Human Revolution: Still can't get into it quite yet. Dunno why, seems like it'd be up my alley. Just keep losing interest

KILL THE SPICE MARINE

Actually this one wasn't Gamestop. Got it sealed at HPB a couple weeks back for $2.50. It survived the Gamestop culling (they opened all their new copies and sold them as used), if it wasn't in such shoddy condition I might have kept it as a relic, but it basically already had two legs and an arm out of the wrap.

?!? I'm abit confused. I don't know why you consider yourself an axx for pre-selling things, you're doing a service.
The one that's an axx is the one that's thinking someone is going to pay $2,222.22 for that bundle (they haven't received) that you said ThinkGeek had issues selling while there's plenty of people selling it for less. I'm amazed at how many people like that person tries using the "SOLD OUT - RARE - DISCONTINUED" in bold/capital letters (they put all 3) thinking that'll get someone to pay so many times the original price.

Edit: On a side note, I just discovered how the bold feature works on this site while trying to censor myself. smile

Agree. I don't know why they are pricing it like that either. I guess they are acting like sharks with blood in the water, they saw an opportunity & attacked. They probably figured they could milk or get the big money from people because the game is (and other things are) popular and since some people are buying it for those prices. Similar to what you said it probably wasn't as many as they was hoping would be interested in it (and some of their other things) so they decided to force it (them) on others in these bundles.

That game looks really good actually, I'm not sure if it's any more repetitive than most games are but at first listen I couldn't stand the music, but then it wasn't as terrible and I didn't mind it anymore lol.

The cheapest bundle included four wall decors of NES box art, it was easily the superior choice but of course everything BUT the Zelda package or the $190 one or whatever was sold out, so I had to settle.

Well, I say had to settle. Could have easily skipped, but how often do you actually get a new unit direct from an actual retailer?

Look at this horse crap. I ordered this NES Classic ten days ago. It gets shipped out Friday (first class, for a package with a thick hardcover book, more controllers and the classic), they request to have it held at their post office, they ask me Saturday "Hey, what's your address", and I give it to them. They give me a new tracking number. Doesn't track for 3 days. I ask them to check the tracking number, they messed up a number and re-send me the correct number. I get to see that they sent it RETAIL GROUND, HERE WE GO. They sent it from Battle Creek; this place is fudging 3 hours and 23 minutes away from where I live.

So they of course, ship it further north. Okay. It then goes... two states to the right of me. Each day the shipping estimate continues to go up by a day. First time I asked, "Says it'll get to you Thursday". I email them again they're like "Sorry for the inconvenience, it says it'll get to you Friday", I look at it Friday and OH, IT'S IN PENNSYLVANIA, HA. TWICE FURTHER THAN WHERE IT STARTED. Expected delivery Saturday! (office is closed on Saturday)

1. WHY DOES RETAIL GROUND EXIST
2. DO THEY PUT ALL THEIR CONVICT/CHILD LABOR IN CHARGE OF THE GROUND LOGISTICS
3. IF IT COSTS SLIGHTLY LESS THAN, IF NOT THE SAME PRICE AS PRIORITY, WHY THE FUDGE WOULD YOU NOT JUST GO PRIOITY

@DiamondDave As someone who resells a lot of heavy electronics items I am very happy that retail ground exists. People probably wouldn't buy old receivers and vcrs online if shipping were more than the item itself. I understand your annoyance though, ground takes stupid paths.

Edit: Also yeah shipping something like a NES classic ground is super dumb. It's relevant when the package is gigantic/heavy.

I have two shipments coming in with Retail Ground: An NES Classic with a book, and ten un-used Xbox 360 replacement cases.

Both of them should not have gone this way. But at least now I see some sort of useful reason for it to exist. It should not be suggested for packages under 7-10 pounds. Ever.

Completely agree and I made sure to edit that into my previous post to avoid confusion. When it matters though, sometimes I'm looking at like $15/45 and $20/60 shipping splits for ground vs priority. I dread to think of what @DefaultGen box of Xbox n Star Trek would have ran him on shipping to me priority.

Fedex smart post is pretty legit for some stuff. For me to use UPS or Fedex they have to be a lot cheaper than USPS ground, because I would have to go entirely out of my way for either one as they are in obnoxious parts of town (not even the town I live in which is too small for such things) and I'm not leaving them at a drop box even if the package would fit. Whereas there is a post office within a few miles of my house so it's super easy for me to ship out once a day in the morning.

Stage 2 is the same crap. I got lost a bit but I think that's the point of these stages.
I am not a good with hidden from view type puzzles. I remember I got stuck at Wild Arms for like hours before I FINALLY stumbled upon a hidden door.

I am assuming there are like 5-8 stages. I guess there's some replay value since there are 3 different weapon types.

I hope they do something differently next stage.

I'm not saying the same isn't enjoyable. I like it overall.

Repetitive game play isn't a deal breaker. So far the power ups have only been life and magic meter. Maybe we will see some new moves or new sword or something, but doesn't look like it since there isn't a menu for new equipment or magic spells.

It's developed by a Japanese company called Skipmore, which I don't know much about.

I am enjoying it. For only $5, it's worth the price tag.

Well at least you are getting your money's worth, and I did like the looks of the first level overall and the old school gameplay.

I still want to get a switch this year, I may not I've been buying and trading for lower end items and I'm still furnishing the apartment on a tight budget. But I think this would be a nice reason to get one, and also that street fighter 2 game, I'm not the biggest fan of 3 and 4 but just the idea that there's some cool new stuff in sf2?!? Oh hell yes! Street fighter 2 is my favorite fighter other than every Mortal Kombat and a little known fighter on the jaguar called ultra Vortek.

Are the controls pretty terrible for sf2 on the switch though? I've tried to read some on gamefaqs without spoiling too much but some people say it plays as tight as always, I'm not great at street fighter but if I can't even pull off a dragon punch or E Hondas charge moves it will ruin it for me.

I don't remember the last time I wanted a system just to play street fighter, except snes lol. I mean I still want all the main games like Zelda and Mario but this newish street fighter 2 is only on the switch.

Idk I'm kinda torn. Does the eshop for switch have a lot of nes and snes games to buy? I'm thinking rarer stuff like the lolos or some castlevania 3 or even Friday the 13th? Lol.

And now I need a retron too or one of the other cheap nes Genesis snes knockoffs. Decisions.

Nope, Switch eShop has a bunch of Neo Geo titles. No NES, SNES, N64.

Maybe you should get a Wii U instead.

This is strange. The last time something weird happened for me was I mistakenly put Flat Rate Envelope instead of Flat Rate Padded, which is like a $0.50 difference and they shipped it back to me after holding it. wry smile

Something definitely strange is going on here.

Lol yeah this was to me and I remember it. We were wondering wtf was going on because it wasn't even scanning. I would have gladly paid the extra 50 cents on delivery, stupid USPS.

Ended up being pretty rough! Took about twice as long as NG to beat, though I have played Bloodlines a fraction of the time, and have only made it to stage 3 before this clear (thinking on it, might have to do with limited continues on Bloodlines). But definitely tough. I liked the last stage, though the bosses were kinda eh. DEATH was disappointing, probably because they had to slap him at the end of a boss rush, but he still gave me a run for my money the first couple shots.

This was just a desktop capture off Kega emulator, ain't nobody got money for Elgatos and Framermeisters. Software used was Open Broadcaster Software, super easy to set up, and streams way better than the Xsplit I tried yesterday.

Anyways, here's the DVR. I'll keep this one unlisted since I was still figuring stuff out streaming-wise but you can watch it here:

I have an Elgato for HD console streaming and I don't love it. It works just fine, but there's a 650 ms delay for both audio and video, which is strange. For AV consoles, I use the GV-USB2.

Does it have all the neo geo arcade titles? And are they pretty faithful? That might be better than nes games since I can just play them on my nes I just have to find them first.

Mostly I'm hoping for Magician Lord, Crossed Swords (I think that's what it's called) and the first two Samurai Showdowns maybe World Heroes.

Thanks Lunar!

I have Elgato HD the older version with access to AV/YPbPr. But that was before I had the DVDO. Just plug the DVDO into the Elgato and everything plugged into the DVDO and you are set!

I use OBS for PC Streaming since my video card doesn't have Shadow Play.

Nah, it's far from the full library. They are just sprinkling a few here and there. None of them are particularly good games (Couple Fatal Furys, Couple Metal Slugs, Couple SamShos, A few KoFs, and a few shmups).

http://www.nintendo.com/games/game-guide/?pv=true#...

All of them cost $7.99 which to me is questionable if they are worth it or not:

Metal Slugs Anthology is $14.99 or cheaper on PSN.
Alot of these random fighters are cheap on other platforms (Steam, Xbox, GOG)
There are a few titles that aren't on other digital platforms as far as I know like Waku Waku 7 and Magical Drop II.

If you like SNK titles and want a good compilation, get the SNK Arcade Vol. 1 for PlayStation 2 or Nintendo Wii (Magician Lord, World Heroes, SamSho, Sengoku, Last Resort, etc) for only $20ish

Sengoku is my favorite neo game; nostalgically biased though because I grew up with that being in the local burger joint on the cab, played that, metal slug 1, baseball 2020, and puzzle bobble. 4 cart mvs. They would swap world hero's in now and then, but it never got played.

Mmmmmmmmm neo

Considering every Fatal Fury game but MotW is cheap, those probably aren't worth it. Old KoF games are pretty cheap too.

Agree about SNK Arcade Vol 1, that's a sound pick-up.

Thanks for posting this! I'll have to check out that Nintendo site list later my phone won't load it right now 😐

Yeah I've been wanting that compilation on wii or ps2 and a couple people posted copies on here over the last year but someone else always got before I had the available funds. I have read a couple reviews that said they really messed those games up though. Something about being glitchy as hell. Still want one of them though. (Probably ps2)

I need to check this wii out and make sure there aren't any special games on the hard drive too though 😉 Seems like a good project for today I've been putting it off way too long.

Yea, I was giving away Vol 1 and 3 GH lol. I have them digitally on PSN, collecting them is just for fun. I'll be patient with those.

GH looks out of place with the black labels.

I heart PlayStation and just realized I like that system better than most.

So I'm going EXTREME after this bootleg experience and just ordering directly from the record label in Germany. Getting the vinyl too because why not and it comes with the cd too.

@Lunar I find that for vintage systems gen v and back I mostly play PCE and Saturn. Almost exclusively. I had a great time with PS1 when I was younger but I pretty much beat most of the RPGs I wanted to back then and Saturn has almost all the same non-rpgs and is easier to cdr on.

$30. I'm surprised to see it even recognized.

I was going to stop by another store on my way home but their first post on Facebook was "This lot is headed to eBay, the good ones never last!" Uhh, guess I'm avoiding your store then.

I mostly played Saturn US library until only a few years ago that I dipped heavily into imports. So when they were both relevant, the PS1 easily won the shelf space since it had the better games and had more games.

@Lunar Of course. I didn't even get into Saturn until I want to say around 2006 so it was long dead already. I played way more PS1 as a kid, but now Saturn is the system I prefer of the two.

Beat it. It's 4 stages. I feel like its one level pretty much with different skin and map. Bosses are simple and very easy.

I stopped by another crapty game store (Game On, somewhere in southern VA or northern NC) that was closer to my route instead. It's the same deal with all these places, Super nice, friendly, knowledgeable owner, crapty strip mall location, zero stock of good games. I don't know how these game stores get by with their stocks of Cartoon Network GBA games, Imagine Babyz DS games, and less than a dozen SNES/Genesis games combined. I always feel too bad to leave a bad review on Google because the owner is so nice. I'm not some collector complaining "Oh they have nothing I don't have", like how do you even run a retro game store if you don't have Super Mario World and Mario Kart 64 in stock?

@DefaultGen Yeah I've been to stores like that. The main one I go to is always well stocked with good crap, though the prices are a bit high here and there. Which probably helps keep good games in stock.

Tangent where I dog about people.

This is the same store I trade in a lot of junk to. It used to be that people could order off eBay/Amazon for a small fee added on. Factoring in the huge bonus for store credit and that for some stuff I was getting more credit than I'd net selling on eBay or here it was pretty worth it. I got some pretty sick hauls for garbage including the IFU + region modded Core that @Lunar now has, Soldier Blade (that you now have, lol) as well as lots and lots of physical PC games no one wants. You know, stuff that they are never getting in trade. So obviously, this was too good to last. People started ordering consoles that are triple digits to begin with to save like, $5-10 after it was all said and done. Like...fudging really? Of course that option had to be shut down, because they barely see any profit in those consoles, compared to ones they get in trade-in. So now I just pick up random cheaps there, and sometimes pre-order crap with credit.

Don't you disrespect those Ecco CD soundtracks. But yeah, this seems like the common stuff I'd expect to perpetually see on store shelves after the Lunars and Snatchers have been bought up. If the store isn't even hanging on to these, it's definitely a Cartoon Network GBA game store.

I don't know if you guys are into auction sniping sites, but Gixen recently added Gixen.net where can create an account linked with Ebay's new APIs, rather than the weird old way of logging in directly with your Ebay credentials. It's a free site and costs a whopping $6 a year for premium (which just mirrors your snipes for fault tolerance and gives you some useless features). I've been using it for almost a decade.

I keep getting sidetracked with newer games.

Only did a few levels of 3D World. So far, it's "pretty fun". Like you said, easy and light.

I've been spending most of my time on PlayStation 4 Root Letter, it's one of those mystery VN games with Japan backdrop(which was what drew me in). They did a great job
with the Japanese culture/location, I actually feel like I know the place now(Matsue in Shimane Prefeture, it's a real place that now I want to visit!)

The other game is Nintendo Switch Kamiko, posted some videos earlier, it's only an hour long to beat, repetitive but fun overall with great music that reminds me of the good old days.

I actually got Yakuza 2 for PS2 way before it reached the states. But never played (if I did, not for more than the usual few minutes to test).

It's a travesty really, how many games I've owned but never even bothered to play.

It's one of those things I am looking to correct.

A thing all people will always say as they get older, kids will always laugh and make fun of it, yet their time will come to repeat it over and over, and have their kids laugh at them.

When I was in my 20's I imagined having a huge collection of like 40+ games for every system (and that's not even huge, just to my standards) and worrying about losing my save files for battery backup games. I'm nearing 40 and have been able to trim down my collection without any mental anguish over it. I've realized, crap I don't have time for all that. I just keep a pretty big if you ask me, amount of personal favorites. And I think age and acknowledgement of mortality has everything to do with it.

But I'm still happy, and still enjoying games. And loving every minute of it, as well as with the community here. Because it is a hobby, and I enjoy it. Just in a slight different way than when I was in my 20s.

Beat Kamiko again with the archer, I think I had more fun with the broadsword girl, she has a more satisfying kill.

Archer (Uzume) is obviously good at long range but when she shoots, she has to stay in place for a half second before you can move again. Also you cannot shoot in all 8 directions(just 4), her special move is overpowered.

Indeed. This is my 2nd time going through it and I knew I can easily go through the whole game with a different character in one shot.

If you are good with memorizing directions, it should be even easier. I am bad with directions in real life so sometimes I get lost in the maze.

Far as I know it acts like Ground, except they let USPS handle the last leg of the delivery, so they just dump 80 billion packages in the local USPS location and let them deliver it all. But this UPS location's about a block away, the USPS office is literally across the street, so I'm guessing UPS was like "Eh fudge it, it's just two packages, we'll drop them off on the regular truck". Generally if they've got a lot of stuff to drop off it all goes to the post office anyways, must just be a slow day for USPS injection.

In this case most of the wait was me holding my breath to see if they would actually accept the order since it errored out right at the end of the checkout, after it was confirmed it was only about a 2-3 day turnover. I can certainly live with that, even if it didn't get delivered until tomorrow through the post office, no big deal.

Finally go around to getting most of my consoles in the same room on the same TV. All running HDMI or RGB. There are a couple missing, the ones I haven't got modded or don't play as much. Now if I only had space to store all the games right there too...maybe one day. :)

Mine is pretty quiet and I've had it since they first came out. Might just be a bad fan bearing which is very common on electronic devices in general.

I picked this one up from Wally World on Black Friday for $60 or so. It's all glass shelves, semi-articulating arm stand and free shipping. Took me a long time to find one in the style I wanted too, it supports up to 60" TV I believe. Mine is a 43" LG 3D model.

That is the one, but normal retail is like $129 and on sale it's $99, black friday was $60-70 depending on stock levels. And yes it does get dusty but I prefer it to all the enclosed ones I looked through. Kids do the dusting anyway so I'm good for another decade at least. :)

@DiamondDave Classic, although I remember this one taking me longer than normal to finish. When renting games back then, for a single night, it was a must to complete them in a single rental so you could get a different game next time. I rented this one 3 times, only game I ever had to rent more than once.

My folks were always more keen to rent than buy, just made more sense than shelling out $50 in the 80's for a "game". Didn't really have too many games growing up that I owned but we had to cherish each one because it was rare to buy and when you drop that much money you loved that game even if it was Renegade and Bayou Billy. Renting was what most of us did and how we got to experience most games back then.

Now we're like "HAVE ALL MY $60, I'LL SPEND ANOTHER $50 ON DLC WITHOUT BLINKING BRUH"

Though technically $60 was a looooot more money back in the 90s. All these games have depreciated terribly, even a lot of the "more expensive" titles. Solomon's Key at this price would have been about $13 on a shelf when this game came out.

It's funny to see how the price of games has changed and not changed over the years right. Atari games were what, like $25-30 before the crash and $2-10 after. Then Nintendo jumps in a $50, it's really interesting that we're at basically the same price for games on current gen...at least for the suggested retail price in the first month or so. :) After a couple months pass, we're back at Atari prices.

I mean, what else retails for basically the same price that it did 30 years ago besides new video games?

Well, you have to remember, $60 was a lot in one shot back then. $1.50 once every couple weeks, not a big deal

Also, lol at the pricing. Naaaaaaa, I think Fist of the North Star's Blu release is retailing for like, $80? And that has 152 episodes. RK had less than a hundred I'm sure

Kenshin is 95 eps, I watched it recently. There is no US BD yet but honestly with $90 for a few episodes of OAV I can only imagine how Aniplex would price 95 episodes if it happens.

Hadn't heard about that FotNS BD. Who is putting it out? I would assume Discotek/Eastern Star since they did the dvds and for all my minor issues with them they are WAY better than aniplex.

Anime pricing from every company except aniplex is pretty great now. Halcyon days really with these S.A.V.E. and anime classics releases.

It is.... one of the few groups I follow on Facebook, Discotek! I love these guys.

"Fist of the North Star the complete TV series on SDBD! This will contain all 152 episodes in Japanese with English subtitles on 3 Blu Ray discs! Episodes 1-36 will also have the English dub. October 31st 2017!"

I don't know if you've gotten your hands on the DVD set, but it's totally obnoxious. 28 or whatever DVDs crammed into one case, you have to double-stack them and it's just crap. A world of crap. I'll take 3 Bluray discs, thank you. The quality of the DVD set, disc management aside, was excellent. I'm hoping there aren't any issues with the Bluray transfer regarding audio/subs.

Better than the DVD release if only for the disc count.

I really appreciate Discotek putting out a lot of the old Lupin stuff. There are a couple I'd love to see them do yet, but I think there might be some nefarious licensing issues. I have a lot of those OAVs on my to buy list. Right now I'm knocking off the old Animeigo Macross singles. Then those Lupin oavs/tv specials, Case Closed and Yu Yu Hakusho on BD are on the top of my list.

I might panic buy FMA soon. I know any future release is going to be a nasty price and really I shouldn't have put off buying it for so long.

Nice. Curious, how big is the TV you have mounted on that?

I have a retro gaming set up that I play on a mounted 32" screen LCD TV, but lately I've instead been hooking the HDMI output to a 24" monitor that I use on my desktop, I think I like playing on the smaller screen alot better.
Also, I like being so close up to the screen, especially for reading all that dialogue in RPGs.

I tried really hard to go back, I got a Lenovo IPS 60hz that had good reviews and when I was looking at it, I could see like... I don't know how to describe it, grids, lines going through certain solid blue colors on it, and I was noticing gradients I wasn't on this monitor. Ended up returning it.

Work has 60hz monitors but I don't really mind it in another space, that's normal. It's nice seeing games run more smoothly, this was all space age stuff to me five years ago when it was all the rage. By the time I adopted 24 inch 144hz TN displays were only $200, I see them go on sale for like $180 some days.

@DiamondDave In all seriousness I actually totally get why bill did it, and it was a good idea.

I never actually tried to trade with him. I did joke with him in the chat about only selling him games for PayPal but he did not seem interested in that. I didn't want to exploit him (obviously) and just overall didn't want to try to work things out with him when there are many other people that will actually type out proper English. Definitely a major boo on anyone planning to essentially rip him off.

Here's a post that should get some attention ... I'm thinking of selling my XRGB-mini Framemeister and buying an Analogue NT with the money. Looking for opinions.

I like the idea of having a NES system that I can hook up to an HDTV or my SDTV CRT. I really like the fact that it has an SD card built in so that I can boot ROMs off the system if I wish. I don't use the XRGB at all ... it's hooked up to my 2nd Saturn system to my projector and it literally just sits there. While the Saturn looks amazing on the Framemeister, I still like the original "look" that I grew up with of S-Video on a SDTV.

My thought process has basically been:
- I want to play more NES
- I want to get a NES Top Loader
- Nah, I want to get an AVS
- No, what I really want to get is an Analogue NT Mini but it's so damn expensive
- What can I sell that I never use?

I have an original NES and a Retron Trio already (mostly use Retrocon).

Also, just in case anyone is interested, I might be selling my XRGB-mini Framemeister. It would be for a decent price. I'm reasonable. yes .

If he had some useful way to see what he had I wouldn't have minded sending a bunch of cheapos and boxes off the shelf for you know, a $10-15 game I was interested in or something, that would have worked out for both of us, Alas, the hoard is massive and ever-shifting.

Yes that is true lol. I saw the beginning of one of his videos and I was like ugh I'm doing the same effin thing here, I would have traded some trash for trash with him why the hell not? I'm sure he had some great stuff but like most of my stuff nothing was really listed. I need to organize my stuff and just spend a day adding it at least to my collection here.

I disagree a little on this. Most of the people here at gametz are very trustworthy, I didn't hate any of the stuff in bostonitalians mystery boxes. And since I live in California most things can be sold for more here, so even though the people who got mystery boxes from him were not happy if I were into reselling I could have kept what I wanted and got some of the money back on what I didn't and been very happy. ..... Probably.

Also I'm still waiting for @Missile to post his mystery games from @SirConnery I'm thinking there will be some good games in there 😊

Lol that's silly in this negative political climate we find ourselves in I believe positivity is one of the most valuable things we can have. Nothing is lost no matter how bad things seem 😊 We can always do better. And it carries over into trading and everything else as well.

To any Framemeister peeps, FirebrandX put out new profiles with 12-bit color turned on (not sure if any other changes) which are aimed to reduce analog-to-digital noise on dark colors. They were a huge improvement over the original profiles for me.

Not sure if I dare to ask what a decent price on an XRGB-Mini would be.

Hundreds of dollars probably. Does make a big difference though. I didn't go Framemeister because I wanted more multi-purpose scalers but if you only want it for games it's really damn good.

Good news yay. I went and got a 2nd opinion on the vehicle. Something anyone should ALWAYS do. Of course I didn't tell this place anything other than that I had been having some issues and another place did some reprogramming on computerized parts (for free, to rope me in for the transmission repair no doubt). Well they looked it over and they told me that absolutely nothing is wrong. They also said that from time to time the aforementioned reprogramming is required for smooth operation. They charge a nominal fee for it. Anyway they ended up charging me nothing at all, not even for the eval (I've had some minor work done at this place years ago, they have always been the lowest price).

Glad I didn't panic sell anything, lol.

Anyone in the market for a 2DS XL that hasn't even had a cartridge loaded into it yet? Could ship it for $135. Trying to do a little more fundraising for a possible purchase.

Sweet, thanks for the heads up. I just put on the 720 profiles from the 30th but it looks like he released this on the next day.

Are you just looking to play NES games over HDMI? I have an Analogue NT Mini, modded UltraHDMI NES Top Loader and a framemeister, plus an OSSC.

Personally, I prefer the NT Mini using hte built in HDMI directly to the TV. The UltraHDMI mod does most everything the NT can do with exception of the other systems with the alternate firmware from Kevtris. Ultra HDMI modded systems are about $100 less than an NT Mini too. That might be another option for you if this is just about NES games in HDMI.

While the OSSC is great as a line doubler, providing virtually no lag, I still prefer my framemeister upscaler as it just fits my taste better on the look/feel I'm trying to achieve.

I like the fact that nobody told me selling a Framemeister to fund an Analogue NT is idiotic. Instead I get several PMs to buy it.
