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

The punish in NG is real. NG2 was... well, it was easier in terms of the reset distance, but the stage area leading up to the final boss is such a dog it doesn't even matter. I tell you what though, by the time you finish that game you're a fudging wizard at the last stage, knowing where to purposely take a hit to clear a further embattled area easier, what items to get and what to ignore, it's crazy. I discovered glitches in NG to make ever-spawn enemies just vanish, like in Looper.

NG3 there's a continue limit.

Ninja Gaiden is actually one of the first games I can remember beating, with Zelda II and Super Mario Bros. being the other two. I played Zelda II again last year and couldn't beat it, lol. It would probably be the same deal if I tried playing NG again. I don't think I ever finished either of the sequels. Maybe I will give those a try. (On the 3DS, so I can "cheat" smile)

The key with Ninja Gaiden is finding the spinslash subweapon. It one-hits everything including all bosses before Jaquio. It's still a round game regardless, mostly because of ninpo management and trolly enemy spawns, but it's better than without it.

I didn't realize this, and when I did realize it, I kinda ignored it out of habit. My mind is trained to ditch it as soon as possible since it's such a Ninpo vampire and I'm always slashing every item as I come across it anyways. For grins and giggles I did one-shot the first boss a week ago, kinda hemmed and went about my business.

Same seller that listed some other processors cheap also listed an Edge: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DVDO-EDGE-Used-See-Descrip...

Has some cosmetic issues so it probably won't end for $760 (still lolling at that last one).

It was on sale for... $26 I think on Steam, figured why not.

First death was annoying. Started getting it after that but the longer I keep looking for elements to keep myself alive and keep my mining tools alive so I can search for parts to fix all my busted crap I'm like "Now, do I really want to do this again and again and again for another 20, 50 hours?" The answer at the moment is "Nah, fudge that I'm good dawg"

Current projects include funding some kids sport stuff..building or buying a pc in the i5/GTX range (looking at alienware alpha but think I can build for considerably less with comparable specs from what I've been youtubing), preordering OneX, and a switch. Preference to sales but for this group trades/combos always considered.

No not something cuting edge.. maybe a mid to pretty decent i5 with a GTX, that 980 would probably be perfect..the gtx family can use nvidia game stream with the shield tv.
(And emulate ps2 like a beast)


OMG that sonG lol

The kids will wanna play minecraft on it too but that surely doesn't need much power. Will play some steam.on maybe quite a bit of it over the stream to tv but not like the witcher 3 or anything like that. I don't plan to spend a lot on a monitor so plan on playing games on my tv.

Dell has an alienware I customized up for 749.. but I think I could part it out for a lot less but I have never built one out of nothing but I've added pieces to several computers over the years. I may just go the preassembled I want it to be right and ive never wired mobo's or anything that deep and not as on touch with such things as I was and it sounds time consuming to shop and order and build. I think I've got enough here to fund it anyway lol

Just got back home from MO Game Con in St Louis area. Didn't make it for both days like I had hoped as we had a family emergency come up. Anywho, pretty good turnout overall, nice to meet some YouTubers (My Life in Gaming, Radical Reggie, Kelsey, John Riggs), saw the Nintendo Playstation, played some SF2 on it (famicom cart). Met Leisure Suit Larry and Kings Quest designer guy, Al Lowe. The vendors were all very friendly and talkative, most of them even listened in return.

Made some nifty trades and picked up a few from my list. I think next year I'm gonna setup a table so I can have more time behind the scenes.

Honestly it has been great, no low ball offers yet. I might pick up some CD-R's tomorrow and make a few back-ups if I don't get any bites. I finally have a spot under my monitor I can put the system.
