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

Eh, actually I'm ok with the censorship. I was having fun with the game before I was even aware of the censor.

If i really want to, I'd just watch porn. But i like the anime girl tease and the smack talk from the lolita girl. Can't even remember her name(I like Tiffany)

Me too. But honestly, s-video in combination with an upscaler like iscan or OSSC looks really good for gamecube games. It is true that s-video is the biggest jump in picture quality. So you don't have to be an upscaling fiend like me to enjoy the benefit of a nice s-video cable. None of my TVs take S-video anyway, so that was one of my many long lists of excuses to go ahead and get into upscalers.

S-Video is the big reason I went out and found a high-end CRT. It's totally been worth it so far.

nice, I bet it does. I play on my flat screens with the upscaler but I look forward to messing with the scanline options with the OSSC.

I think they made some weird choices with Kiwami tbh buuuut at the end of the day it's Yakuza and I don't mind playing through this story again, it's been a long time since I've played the first 2.

Luminous Arc is my bathroom time killer and play until I crash in bed game. So progress isn't the best but I'll probably beat it this year.

The worst part about playing Castlevania 1 again is that it totally reaffirms for me how great of a game it is. It's even better than Ninja Gaiden 1 for many reasons. The stiffness of his jumping is absolutely NOT one of those reasons.

It also reaffirms for me that it's superior to sotn in a lot of ways as well. This game and Ninja Gaiden hold up amazingly well after almost 30 years each it's crazy how good they still are!

Nothing spectacular from what I was seeing. I was looking at saving $13 on a bluray set compared to market value ($30 instead of $43).

Miller's Report and yes it is included. RS/Sunrise have been real good about content in these releases.

0083 is next on my to buy list. Wanted to watch these before Zeta.

I want to get Origin as well but the last episode just came out in Japan. There is a blu release here that is the first 4 episodes but that seems dumb to buy when they should put out a release with all 5.

Yeah I don't see myself rewatching the original. I don't hate it, but it's a huge time commitment. If I ever did want to go through the material again, there is the movie trilogy which would suffice.

I got through it without stop time. I got to Frankenstein's set of stages in about an hour then spent 2 hours dying over and over. The last straw is when I died when he had 1 bar of health left, then we double KO'd right after.

Baller ass trade. I think it wasn't super great with 480p content but maybe that's been helped out a bit with custom profiles. Better ask a Framemeister expert like @DefaultGen

I kinda want an XRGB-3 for the versatility.

Right now I'm playing lolball with the projectors I mentioned awhile back. Doesn't seem like there is much if any other interest so I'm trying to get them as cheap as possible. Then if that happens I've earmarked the funds to get some speakers for the set-up in the $850 range.

@Lunar

Use FirebrandX's profiles. The only thing I need to tweak about them is vertical centering. The deep color noise reduction profiles are a must IMO, especially for Sega CD FMV segments which generate lots of noise for whatever reason.

@BleedingViolet Might be as well. The speakers I'm looking at are there so it would have to be someone okay with shipping such an item too. I'd pay for time, especially since I could presumably get a discount for local pick-up. The person is willing to ship but I have no idea how competent they are so I'm weighing all my options here.

Edit: It would also have to be someone I trust with $700+ so that narrows the pool a lot.

Lol.

So yeah, these are older and fairly compact (essential for me). Also pretty damn good value for the quality. Obviously I'm not looking to drop like 50k or more on speakers. But anyway this is a ways off (need to get the projectors first) and I may just end up having the seller ship them.

That's where you should be asking about. @whitefire you've been to gamedude right?

And I'm out in the desert in Palmdale in the ghetto at that! I worry even getting mail here since we have tiny mailboxes and I don't want to have any packages left in front of my apartment either. But the rent is super low it's insane. I also can't have pets here and I've been wanting a dog or another rattlesnake.

I finally bought some heavy duty garage style plastic shelving though. I can finally sort stuff out a little easier. Hopefully I can figure out what I have that I don't need and update all my lists here.

Actually that's the funny thing about these bosses, you can read and watch all the videos you want but ultimately you can still win with your own play style. There's almost enough wiggle room in the boss mechanics where you could beat all of them without sub weapons (except one unless you're able to predict the future maybe)

Some ways are slightly easier but this is not really one of them. It's however you feel comfortable.

I'm glad he's doing it on his own. He may come up with some new tech that can shave some time off someone else's speed runs. I'm not talking about this scenario in particular but some of his earlier footage had him moving pretty quickly through a stage.

Yep, thats the ticket Lunar. Horrible system if you are using it stock, one of the best portable retro emulation systems though.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Awhile back I had a seller instantly accept a return but then didn't send me a label. They ignored my messages. The soonest I could I escalated to eBay so they sent me a return label and the seller then just immediately refunded me before I even shipped the item back.

Btw I probably worried you about this PS4 for nothing. It did freeze but I think a lot of it was on the VP50pro end. It just started giving me crap with a standalone blu player tonight. Pretty sure the fans in it don't work right and I even replaced them. :/

Castlevania 2 Simons quest is almost like a different type of game than 1 or 3. I believe there was an actual rpg element to it as well.

I saw it at the retro game store a little over a week ago and bought foxs Peter Pan and the Pirates instead of something I had actually ever heard of ...... I'd be down to trade for Simons Quest maybe. It's not a game I remember as well as the other games but it still has some positives in my memories.

Also I don't remember Simons Quest being hard at all. The only one I beat that gave me trouble was the first one I believe. It kind of sets you up mentally for the others.

Damn now I really want to see if I could pass the harder second playthrough of Castlevania. I doubt it but at least it will be challenge.

It runs at like 10 frames per second, so I'm already done. There's no way I'm playing a fighting game that runs poorly when there are so, SO damn many random fighting games that look and run great. There are a whopping 6 characters and 2 songs. The stage backgrounds are almost entirely static. It's hard to tell if the character animation is good because the game runs so poorly. The sprite work seems OK. It's easy to play at least. If you look at the combo sheet, it's almost entirely quarter circle + any button or double quarter circle + any button for any character. That's good because no one is going to ever spend the time learning this game. And yeah, the first time I tried to play through it, it crashed on me.

A second positive is that the translation is so nonsensical, it's hilarious. It reads like it was run through Google translate from Japanese to English and back 4 times, then put into the game.

I have a tiny 14" one that I almost never use except sometimes for shooters (mostly because it's on a desk, so easy to put a joystick in front of it). I like to lean back when I play so basically every PVM is just too small. Maybe there's some huge one you can spend $5000 on, if you can even find it. I think @Gypsy has one though.

I do. Depends on the price like DD says. When you could easily get 20'' w/ RGB for under $200 and in good shape, then it was probably worth it. If you already have or can get a cheap VGA monitor and a good line doubler I'd do that. Certainly more sustainable and cheaper to replace the display when it goes. Probably cheaper initially too.

I played through Super Castlevania IV yesterday. As much as I love the first game, this is probably better. 10/10 for me. It's definitely better than Birdthrow of Blood because the Belmont character is a superman badass.

Trade value will probably be a bit more than $75 which was a rock bottom sale price.

So far just on the annoyance factor of Death alone, I think I'm inclined to agree. But CV 4 was also significantly easier in ...almost every way, like how you don't have to buy an engagement ring for your jump arcs and how the whip just fixes every problem you have in the game

I thought the difficulty was about right. It's not hard, but once you hit the castle it's not a super breeze like the first half of the game. The checkpoints are crazy forgiving. There's the 4-boss gauntlet in the B block at the end, but you get a checkpoint after every boss (or at least you get one before Death). Some gauntlet!

What gave it away? Also, will you try to get a partial refund from the seller and keep the bootleg or just return it outright for a full refund? Finally, what's the going price for one of these counterfeits when they're actually sold as such? I'm curious if it's even worth keeping as an oddity.

Fake NES Classic is worth less than nothing to me. Box was stuffed way past the usually-tight fit of the real crap, thought it might have been a repack in that case (still not new) but after pulling out the box you notice things immediately. Controller textures are all off and have elevated button areas where there were none. Ports are poorly aligned on the system. Box thickness is off. Serials don't match system and box. All the official text is ALMOST there but something's off. And the box itself has that "...wait, something's off" thing about it, where it's just not as clear and crisp as it's supposed to be. Because it's a photocopy.

I'll post some of the tells, I'm actually planning on editing a short video with some functional stuff that I presume I'll find when I plug it in, but the UI should start lagging if left on too long, and changing languages should have no effect. It should also stretch games out to widescreen dimensions instead of keeping proper aspect ratios like the real deal.

Holy cow! Dungeons & Dragons Collection (Saturn) is an arcade-perfect compilation of two of my favorite video games. At USD $75.00, I honestly have no idea how this hasn't been snatched up by now.

Because it's Gametz. I have no doubt it would sell on eBay for this price the same day (I'd list higher on eBay, tbh). But I don't NEED the money so I'm willing to hear out offers here and perhaps trade.

Nah, it's digital. It's really not close to a PVM for 240p content, especially over composite. Of course wear/tear/usage is going to be a factor too. If this has seen daily use since shortly after these came on the market, it could be showing issues.

Too bad I don't have capture equipment or I could really show the difference tonight with some captures.

Then, why do you still keep it?! In addition to a high standard of cosmetic condition, my video game collection has only what I enjoy. If I don't like it, I don't buy it and I definitely don't keep it. While I do own a few select titles that others may not enjoy, i.e. Ultraman (Super Nintendo), I do.

I can't speak for anyone else so I'll just speak for myself since I have a lot of games and movies/shows I don't really like. Sometimes I plan to watch/play something, and I just never get to it. Generally I research stuff before I buy it, but I'll also impulse buy movies/anime in particular when they are cheap. Then I find, I don't care for them that much. Then I just don't care enough to list them on eBay to get like $2, just not worth my time. So it sits on my shelf.

Just brag about how laggy Framemeisters are. That's the OSSC way.

It's true. I'm like Pacman and bad movies are the dots.

Hopefully at some point the scalpers will give the crap up. The mini systems are an elegant solution to the "This crap costs too much" problem.

I was thinking about a possible permanent solution to the scalper problem...like maybe start a group of gamers who will buy one plus (1 or more) to give other legit gamers who missed out on it for MSRP.

RTT peeps(@dunno001, @tonymack21 and couple others) actually are already doing it for LRG releases this past month.

I will as well but honestly working 9-5 M-F chances that I can get an extra or even ONE are awful slim. I'd probably end up being a beneficiary more than a helper. wry smile

MAYBE I CAN STOP GETTING FAKE CRAP TOO.

That's ok. You never know when crap will drop. Remember when SNES mini dropped in the early AM?

I just saw Porksta is selling DariusBurst at cost. Is the LRG bubble bursting? surprise Only Wonder Boy and Night Trap have been really hard to grab recently I think. Even Ys was gettable if you were there when it went up. If anyone needs me to get an LRG game, I'm always awake and at work when they go up even if I don't always want them.

Lol at not just putting Darius on eBay when it was scalping well. This crap is time sensitive.

I'm always willing to help with LRG as well, I don't bother buying most of their games.
