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

Well hey, "New" NES Classics on Amazon's sellers market (G&L Discount Store), found something to spend $160 and some change on.

It's ...a doable price, which makes me wonder if it's more fake crap. He DOES sell fake crap, but generally marks it as such in his listings. We'll see. I'd hate to have to return two packages in a row. Should be here Monday, I'll fill you guys in if it's legit. It's not MUCH under market, but Amazon's usually way over market so less than market's doable. Especially if you've got Amazon credit up the ass.

Meanwhile it turns everyone else off from ever touching the stupid thing, and pirates eventually find a way around it anyways.

That is a decent price sir. Hopefully it's the real thing. Did you say he had more than one of them at that price? Wasn't @KingofGames just looking for a nes Classic?

I recently saw the start up screen and realized it had a couple of extra features I wasn't even aware of before after I looked at that and did some searching. It really is a cool little system worth having even if only just for save states.

Good luck on your purchase.

SNES that bundle woulda cost you... $380, plus you'd still have to get Parodius Da on SFC because it doesn't even exist otherwise.

Megaman 7 is the main offender right? $15 or less vs $160+. Lol ok.

Parodius is solid. I just play Saturn burns of them, but I wasn't going to ask you to cut something from the bundle. For anyone looking to get into the series the Saturn is actually the best way to do it, the entire series is on there (sorry Paro Wars you do not count) and it's easily cdr'd.

Didn't spot anything in Avaliable. Radiant Dawn popped up in your collection but trading that particular collection piece for these, I wouldn't expect to be very enticing. raspberry

Any bits unlisted you wager I might throw down for?

Have a Sands of Destruction for DS that I don't think it listed. As well as a cart/manual Infinite Space. Also this reminds me, cleaned some stuff up, and added some things to available.

Do you have a Saturn? This D&D set is pretty rad.

Then I shall definitely get back to you when I start going through stuff. Or even possibly buy it out right if I sell some stuff I don't need, we shall see, but just so you know you've got at least one potential trade or sale for it 😍

Argh what a pain, i got one of those buyer who was obsessing over the color quality of the box art saying it's SLIGHTLY lower than he though, and wants a refund. He says the disc holder is broke too, which i'm not necessarily doubting, but the whole thing just seems suspect.

I list all my stuff on eBay as acceptable and no returns (I know it doesn't actually matter) to avoid these kinds of buyers. Whenever I get crazy condition inquiries I generally politely tell people I don't need their sale.

Anyway, what was the game and LOL.

There's a couple ways that make that hallway easier ..... There is nothing that makes Death easier or less unpredictable. Hardest boss in the game easily even with the right weapons. I can only imagine what that hallway and the Grim Reaper are like the second time through.

Lol one shot? You used a spin slash on the Grim Reaper?!? 😉

You just meant the second time you started playing it again right?

I was working on a method to pass him without the best sub weapon. It's totally doable but you kinda just get the one shot so ..... I ended up using the best one when I got past that stage on Wednesday. Even with that though you still have to move and not get pinned down anywhere. And still "Whip it Good!" Lol.

Haha I mean I got through him with just the one try.
The only times I've played(twice) is when I streamed, so you guys see all my noobish mistakes.

I feel like you just got to kill all the bananas then whip the crap out of him, rinse and repeat.


Having the cross helps and they made it pretty obvious where they placed the cross. It's like screaming: "don't forget to take this power up, you'll need it"

Will try to stream later this evening for you sadistic fudges.

That looks cool but I only got to see the title screen. I have unlimited 3 or 4g on my iPhone but I don't during the day somehow. AT&T is cool and all but they are stealing from me I think.

Later tonight I'll try and look at it though. You know when they let me watch the videos I'm paying extra every month just to see 😞
