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

How much were you wanting for each? And what do either system come with?

I can find decent Saturn games all day if I'm trying but tg 16? I would want to have at least one or two game cards (preferably complete but whatevs) and each one would have to have at least one working controller and power plus rf or whatever they originally came with.

I'm not saying I'm flush with money right now but I got lots of crap not being played. Or I could pay you more next month for a hamburger today ..... Ugh now I want a burger and I'm currently vegetarian 😞

Let me know, hell actually just post what the systems come with here! I bet I'm not the only one who checks this thread for great games and systems to trade for.

Yes but it's hack of a game I already love, so I would still love to have a copy of this if they didn't totally ruin it or introduce a game breaking glitch.

Which is why I'm posting it to see if anyone knows anything about it before I waste money on something I can't even maybe enjoy.

I don't want your sun faded BS. Nah, I'm just not in the market for hundo-dolla shooters. I've got plenty lined up to play right now, I'm just on the hunt for collectible stuff.

Hit me up with rare Saturn games. 3D Baseball, Sega Worldwide Soccer '98, Winning Post. I need the good good for my shelf.

Cotton 2 then? *trollface*

While joking with you, this is also available. It's in fantastic shape. Got it from @Lunar

I am down for selling, partial trades or even full blown trades for the right stuf. Spriggan is a double for me, so it's gotta go.

No kidding. Looking at the pics, I'dve guessed it to be a real set. But the devil was in the details with it being an "international" version. I'd also suspect the one you'd get does not look like said pics...

I had someone do something similar with a like new used backpack (that I can take my PS4 slim in) I was trying to order on Amazon. They cancelled my order because it was "damaged in their warehouse". They relisted it immediately with higher shipping. So, I found different and I think better backpack which I'm happy with since I can use it for way more things. And, Last I checked their bag was still there and Amazon beat their price with a new one. smile

I mean...it kinda does. It depends on what you are plugging it into too. I kinda want to get a Genesis cable just to compare with rgb over scart on PVM.

PCE/Turbob composite is tons better than Genesis or SNES. On basically any PCE system too. It's especially favourable if you compare to worse Genny/SNES units. I actually haven't bothered having my Duo R modded yet because composite doesn't bother me on it. I'm playing on a PVM though, if I were playing on an LCD tv I'd for sure have modded it already. Still, like you said, it's better.

Please for the love of Christ force a 4:3 ratio frown

That aside, I agree, when I hooked my PCE Duo-R up to my LCD displays, I thought it looked fudging nice.

Well at least there was a reason to it. This seller allegedly has multiple copies and just left the listing up at the same price. Thankfully due to price robots there was another listing of what I want for the same price. If that doesn't work though, I'm going to have to pay $5 more for used instead of new but I mean...I will do it...

There is actually a seller with a new copy of what I want on eBay for slightly less than the Amazon used listings but it's from a seller I refuse to support. Hopefully this current order from the Amazon marketplace works out.

Ah, the kids in the Obey facebook group always used to make meme posts with super-stretched images whenever someone posted a pic proudly with it stretched widescreen. But now people just take pictures of their PCE Works repros (not playing them, just ...pictures). Dark days.
