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

Beat Rondo of Blood. It's kind of weird playing it directly after CV because it's almost the same game with more control, more power ups, and more graphics. I had to look it up to make sure it wasn't a ret-conned remake because the levels and bosses are so similar to the first game. One big difference is that Richter is a little dog compared to Simon. Maria is a badass.

Also I'm a weirdo so I'll just say it ..... I liked Castlevania 64 better than Shadow of the night ..... In fact even thinking about it makes me wanna hook up my ps2 just to see if I even will like lament of innocence (I think it's called right?).

Maybe it's just because it was a Castlevania game idk but it's always been one of my favorite 3D platformers, but most other 64 platformers just weren't very fun in comparison.

Rondo of blood wasn't part of that psp Castlevania was it?

You're not, it's the best, biggest way to play DS games without that stupid gaussian blur the 3DS thorws on it. I had that itch once.

I scratched it and sold it. raspberry

@Lunar yes, 3DS plays DS games with a slight blur, it's normal (effectively the 2DS XL is a 3DS with the 3D option removed but everything else is the same). Every model has done the same thing, only actual DS models scale clean and properly.

Now wait, if you beat Rondo with Maria I'd say that doesn't even super count, Maria's pretty much easy mode. You just whip out birds while running and win the game!

Hm, I still want to beat the game, but not sure if I really want to figure out how to beat stage 15(?) boss. By the time I get there, I barely have any life and to dodge those flying boomerangs(?) effectively.

I might just cheat...and look at videos!

It works on one boss actually but yesterday I actually beat that boss with something else. And I did use the holy water on the wrong boss yesterday because I somehow got stuck with it and it did work on that boss. Today I beat one boss with just the whip Ninja Gaiden style lol.

I'm actually seeing today though that you can actually beat all the bosses (not at the end) with different stuff if you move around enough except one but I'll come back to that one later and try some different techniques even though I know which sub weapon to use I don't wanna 😊 Im not trying to speed run anything in this game though I'm trying to go through all my options carefully and devise different strategies since there seems to be a little wiggle room on how to get from point A to point B.

Which is kind of odd because I got frustrated yesterday because of the Ravens on one of the stages and got bored and turned it off. Today I beat the first two bosses without dying once on the way and getting past the third boss without continuing. But I wasn't really rushing idk why I just breezed the first half of the game today. Maybe tomorrow it'll be harder again.

Those are flying sickles but maybe fight fire with fire?!? No need to cheat sir, each boss has a weakness to at least one sub weapon. That's not a cheat that's a tip. I think mega man got the idea from this game honestly.

That was the Grim Reaper? Might as well be Curious George cuz those sickles look like flying bananas the way they move.

Yeah they were trying to make the game look like a painting with 8 bit graphics lol. If you look at the difference from that Castlevania arcade game that @Noid linked the other day (not the play choice 10 version the other one) you can see they really wanted some fancier graphics than what they could pull off on the nes effectively.

But yeah the grim reaper, or death. I played him earlier tonight in between posting on here so I wasn't totally invested in beating it tonight, I've got all month to beat it why do it in one sitting when I do really love this game? I'm going to keep working on alternate strategies for the grim reaper anyways. He was always the hardest boss as a kid but I play differently now. I'm sure there's another option besides the easiest one.

Are we just going to gloss over the fact that BleedingViolet called SOTN Shadow of the Night, then called it worse than Castlevania 64?

I'm probably going to get to Castlevania this week, after I'm done with the first episode of the Life Is Strange prequel. Priorities, man.

I have a regular DSi so I'm not in a huge hurry. Got a supercard in there with pretty much every DS game that is actually good. Even some garbage like Chrono Trigger.

Trying to finance some Switch games (Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ and Cave Story), would anyone be interested in Contra Spirits, Akumajo Densetsu, Rockman 7 and Parodius Da for Super Famicom for $75 shipped? Or a trade for one or both of the Switch games to be worked out?

Also have Super Mario World 4 and Super Donkey Kong 1 and 2 available for $20 shipped.

That'd be me giving up a lot of SFC games ($95) to get a couple Switch games (25+35/40 = 65 at most). Worst case even if I only sell instead of trade I'd still have a few bucks left over to show for it. raspberry

I'll throw in a Tiny Toons Adventure cart for the first bundle at no cost, only problem is the back casing has a chunk punched out of it like a baby godzilla foot, but some tape on the inside would secure it, which I can do before shipping.

Lol you guys have to realize I've been playing Castlevania games for what? Almost 30 years now?!?

And I'm not the biggest fan of "symphony of the night" (lol 😉 ) and I have played 100s of hours of so many different Castlevania games.

Plus I liked Castlevania 64 better. It really was fun to me. But I am used to liking less popular sequels of games more than more popular ones. Everybody used to tell me how much better snes Castlevania was than Castlevania 1and 3 and I knew which ones I liked best and it wasn't super Castlevania 😉. It's weird when people try to tell you which one is best lol when you have played and passed all three of them. I even liked rondo of blood better than sotn and I didn't even realize that was the name of the other game I was playing on psp. I'm just more into old school platformers than new school ones. And when I looked up the psp Dracula X chronicles to make sure I had indeed played rondo of blood it said there were two other hidden Castlevania games in there aside from sotn that I hadn't even played! D'oh d'oh d'oh!!!

This is what I get for being so old school and wanting to pass games on my own with my own strategies and not looking up every secret online. I think I may have traded that psp game to Lunar or Dashey I can't even remember now. D'oh!

But yeah to me sotn was okay it was not my favorite Castlevania ever or the best. Castlevania on the snes was equally as average to me as sotn. I might even like Simons quest more but that was my least favorite on the nes which isn't to say any of those games suck, they're still Castlevania (one of my favorite series ever) so automatically I like them more than other games almost by default, but compared to other Castlevania games yeah they are the least interesting and/or fun to me. When I first started Sotn again on psp I found myself trying to rush through it because I was actually starting to get bored and I wanted to see if I could open up new characters or stages if I passed it. I don't usually get bored playing Castlevania games ..... If you guys wanna raise a banner and talk about how great those two games are feel free I've played them for way too many hours on end and still don't like them as much as the others. I know exactly what I'm talking about and I find them far less fun than even Castlevania 1. It could be just the controls or the enemies or the play style or the difficulty I really don't know why I'm not as into those two games, I didn't even realize people were so into snes Castlevania still. Maybe I like snes Castlevania better than Simons quest but not sotn idk.

Okay sorry for the long post but I sometimes don't know if you guys get that not everyone has the same favorites. Maybe me telling you guys Castlevania 1 is so much better than sotn is the equivalent of someone telling me Mortal Kombat 1 or 3 or even trilogy is better than Mortal Kombat 2 (which is the best in the series aside from mk9 it's not even close) I'm not sure that you guys get that sotn isn't all that to me. Sure there's some cool new elements to it and I love the rpg aspect of it but didn't Simons quest also have similar things and everybody kind of hated it?

Which reminds me does anyone wanna trade me a copy of nes Simons quest? I haven't played it in forever and with all this Castlevania talk I would like to again. Also I don't have any copies of sc4 on snes so I might want that too eventually it's not as high of a want because it's way too expensive when there are way better games in the series for way less. And I'm still not really wanting to play that one again. But if I had an snes Classic I'd probably start playing that before any other games.

You know I liked Super Mario 3 and especially 2 way more than I liked Super Mario World as well if you wanna tell me how you can't even fathom that either lol. Or Zelda 2 better than snes Zelda? Or Street Fighter 2 turbo (or hyper fighting or whatever) better than any other entry that I've played in the entire series? I also have yet to spend any real time playing final fantasy, super smash brothers or Pokemon. I've never played more than a half hour of any individual call of duty game lol.

Okay this post is way too long. But I just don't like things JUST because everyone else does. That's stupid! I just like what I like just like everyone else does.

I was thinking $80 on that first bundle was about fmv but if can be hard to value Super Famicom with the lower listings that slip through. But yeah, debating buying all of it.

Maybe that freebie puts you over the edge!

I think I valued it off listed sales something like... RM7 for 15, Contra Spirits for $30, Parodius Da for $25 and Akumajo Dracula as another $30, then shave a few more bucks off for shipping. But my asking price is the typical "take price and slice off 20% and eat shipping/fees" crap

If you wanted everything I could do $90 shipped. And I'd still throw in Tiny Toons. So that, Super Donkey Kong 1-2, Super Mario Bros 4, Contra Spirits, Parodius Da and Akumajo Dracula for $90 shipped.

Wait what?

> Also have Super Mario World 4 and Super Donkey Kong 1 and 2 available for $20 shipped.

How much different (if at all) are these compared to the US releases? This is such a good deal if they are mostly the same. I'm getting a retron 5 and have been needing some "Super Mega Donkey Kong 2" in my life for too many years .....

I also have cave story cart only on 3ds but completely understand if you are only looking for the switch version
