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

I'm also at zero and live in the game-event desert of the southeast USA. I'm probably most likely to meet @lpeters82 one day since he's also a pinballer and I travel further than normal to pinball events.

I've never met anyone but turns out emoryarts and I don't live far apart. We are gonna do burgers one day. Free tike for such things is a premium around here though with busy kids. Maybe next time there is a convention in Dallas I'll try and organize a meet up there are a few users in the Dallas metro. I'm about 80 miles east of Dallas.

It was just to meet up to swap trades. I would love to hang out with some of you guys. I used to travel extensively to Magic the Gathering Grand Prix's. And would meet up with some people in my MTGO online clan(lmao, when clans mattered)

Not sure if it's doable with my lifestyle now, but it'd be cool to arrange to meet at some convention.

I've only met one person from gametz that I didn't already know but she and her husband are really cool. I liked trading with them.

I make friends on the Internet all the time surprisingly enough. It's easier to tell if you have things in common with people and it gives you more reasons to want to hang out.

I don't know why but I got the impression you may have been to a street fighter tournament at some point but I could just be assuming that. I guess since you don't even need to go anywhere to play people online though what's the point right?

My thumb is still hurting from the continuous NG runs I did couple days ago. I used a Wii U Pro controller. What do you guys use?

Hopefully it will heal by Friday, I will be streaming some NES(most likely Contra and NG) again.

Thanks man! It was cool to meet you too.
Oh and in case you are curious, Galaga and Low G Man I got new back in the day. So they have been part of my collection for around 30 years.

Xbox 360 controller, stays super comfy hours in man. Trying to do slash cancelling, THAT'S ANOTHER STORY, but for 90% of my work it's fine.

For the record I got to Stage 6 in ...13 or 14 minutes, not sure because my splits were WAY the fudge off on value, it said I'd only taken six minutes to get to stage 6, but that sure as fudge wasn't me. That was with some fudging around and slash cancel practice mid-run. Sub-hour's gonna be no problem soon as we work out a way to get the spinslash to Phase 1 with some ninpo left and actually get the slash cancel down, @Lunar, I think I'm probably on track to get sub-25 minutes once I iron out my half a dozen or so tripping spots, I stopped my run at 37, 38 minutes with Phase 2 down with some fudging around thrown in.

@creagan Superb condition man, I would have assumed they were opened new like, not that long ago. Way to go, those NES boxes are stupid hard to keep looking good.

Obviously I'm using an original NES controller that isn't totally comfy but I still haven't finished it I got to the first boss on level 6 twice last night but I had other stuff I had to do so I'll play some more tonight after I go through all my packages I got today and complete trades.

Yeah the 360 controller is a great multi-purpose controller. Wii U Pro controller...not sure what @Lunar was thinking there. ;)

Don't think Xbox 360 controllers have bluetooth.

I can either do old school and use dog bone/nes controller or one of the bluetooth wireless(DS4 or Wii U Pro Controller)
