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

Screw eBay and all that drama, you should just have an auction here with 210 starting bid for the bundle. That way you would make more and have less hassle.

Well the bundle you're selling is decent and if @whitefire s auction is anything to go by if you post it and it's good they is gon' bid and bid high. i would buy it of course too at that price but I don't have money like that right now. That's why I'm saying an auction is your best bet. 210 is a great price point it's complete right? I'm thinking you probably get people competing and all that, have a 15 minute window ending time and people will bid. I haven't done the math or priced a Wii U recently but I think you'd get more than 210 easy. And they'd pay for shipping.

Won those projectors, pretty excited about it. Out now buying stuff to make my own screen. I'll be sure to post pics once it's all set-up. Probably going a slightly cheaper route on the speakers. $500 range. The ones wouldn't be a final choice anyway, so since I'm going for a stop gap, I figured I might as well pay a bit less.

I think if they fixed up the framerate issues in Sonic Boom it'd be a lot better. As it is, it's not awful yet, definitely more cohesive than Sonic Unleashed and DEFINITELY more playable than Sonic '06.

Sonic Boom is 2 big issues:
1. It's really dull
2. It's.... sooooo... sloooooow.

Also there's a litany of game breaking issues you can come across with enough luck.

No gaming conventions in Jax. Where would one go about finding said gaming conventions? They probably show up to Orlando, but I don't want to go anywhere where there is cosplay and or furries.

Looks like the patch it downloaded removes the infinite jump thing at least, or I'm just not doing it right. Anyways, maybe I'm coming from a weird spot, but I've been watching and really enjoying, sincerely the Sonic Boom cartoon, so when I jumped into this the pacing all seems fine, I'm into the characterizations. I'm sure the less appealing elements of the game will wear on me over time but so far it's okay. I appreciate where it was trying to go and I think with enough time to finish the game, it might have gotten there successfully. Actually hope they consider a PC port at some time, I'd be all over that.

That's because with the way the game's set up, it has to redownload ENTIRE levels if there was any changes made to them, even if it's something completely minor.

This fanboy played through it. On the Wii U. And I'm a PC whore.

That's the power of a good game. The power to make you give zero fudges.

Probably why they never did any real post-fixes other than the easy to fix game-breaking elements, I'm assuming if the game was finished properly it'd be easier to make patches afterwards, but this game was clearly about 90% done. I hate that they had to pre-render in-game cinematics in order for them to be anywhere near decent frames.

Verdict: I think I may drudge through it. Already starting to get repetitive with the stage tasks but it's STILL infinitely more playable and less loading than Sonic '06, this is a fudging masterpiece in comparison, even though it's far from what I would consider a Sonic game. I think they were giving an honest shot at taking the Sonic characters into a new direction. Frankly, judging by the incoming Sonic titles I'm not 100% that going back to the Generations formula's what Sonic needs to stay relevant, but at least Boom's failure got us a net gain of the best Sonic in decades, Mania blew my socks off at how solid of an entry it was.

Combat in Boom is way better than Unleashed, too, so iunno! In the echelon it's at least not at the bottom, it's actually got traction on several Sonic titles I'll never touch again.

As someone who bought a 90001 at the end of PS2's retail life so I'd have a brand new one, why? Is it so you have the only model out of tens of millions that doesn't support Free MCBoot?

Looks like my Nintendo GameCube endeavor was moot. S-video, even with the Framemeister, is subpar at best. GBP is decent but still not better than good ol' AGS-101.

Nintendo Wii with component through a DVDO machine is better and easier. I ain't buying a $300 cable for a system that's not even in my Top 5.

I will be the first to admit getting an SD card set and ready for either Recalbox or RetroPi is way more obnoxious than most scrubs have any patience for, it's a crap show. I will say, however, that once you have one set up, it's pretty beast. I can add games to Recalbox right from my browser, restart the Pi and it's good to go. The biggest downside to this particular brand of Pi emulator front-end is that you need to have system BIOS files for a lot of the interesting stuff, like Sega CD, 32X, FDS, PCE Super CD and the like and tracking those down can be legitimately crapty.

On that note if anyone's like "I got this emulator on my PC and I don't know how to make it nice" hit me up. Most of the ones like FCEUX and GENS/KEGA are super easy to get rolling.

I kinda run into the same issue with flash carts but right now I'm trying my hardest to not start anything but Luminous Arc when I fire up my DSi.

Yeah, I still need to give it a shot and figure out what they're looking for in a disc image for emulating but in THEORY it should work fine. The initial set-up on getting Recalbox up and running is arduous but once it's there, you just pick a game and it plays it, mostly fine. Still have issues with the left and right sides of NES games getting clipped but that's about the worst thing I've run into, everything else runs pretty much perfectly without any additional input necessary.

PCE/Supergrafx alone, works perfectly.

Sadly, I have neither the mental nor technical expertise to do any of what you just mentioned. Believe me, too, when I confirm that I'm not somehow bragging about my own limitations; I'd love nothing more than to be able to download video games from the Internet and play them on a neat 'n' tidy lil' contraption I pieced together. But, alas, none of that's to be for me. That's why something like the NES -- Classic Edition (Nintendo Entertainment System) is SOOO appealing to me. smile

Sounds rad but I can't see fooling with it myself when I have emus on Wii, Xbox and PSP that I never use anyway.

@Lunar Recalbox for life. They're essentially the same thing but Recalbox is practically hands-off when it's in place, the most configuring you do is the input device when you first run it and then uploading files to it through the web browser interface when you wanna add crap like emulation functionality (BIOS files mostly) or ROMs. Once you upload stuff to it, you reboot it and you're off. The WebGUI for uploading crap to the Pi is super slick, I fudge you not.

lol, its really not that bad, ive got ps2 games looking like ps3 level on the pc and several systems looking like a generation forward or better on the shield tv and it was actually pretty easy and im not as technical as I was back in the day at all. its mostly drop down menus and clicking options in something like pcsx2. ETAprime and simply Austin on youtube have great vids and make it pretty easy. if you are looking for the bios files which can be pretty hard to find at times like DD said there are usually links to such things somewhere in the vid description or comments. 3ds emulation has now come a long way too, and ps3/360 even is making progress when the thought was we wouldn't have that for years, its a ways out yet, but wii u is already good too, they've even got BotW running.

i'll post some pics of DQ8 later, its beyond gorgeous at 1080+

Other $15 games have had a $10 physical release tax, so probably $25. Sometimes they get a $5 bonus LRG tax like Night Trap and are $30.

LRG charges $25 or digital price plus $10, whichever costs more. Reason why Night trap costed $5 more was because of the extra goodies they included.

Don't feel bad @Lunar I suck at Cave Story as well. I gave it a decent chance but just couldn't get past the controls and frustration of it all. Kept my 3DS copy around but I don't see another attempt at playing that one again coming up any time soon.

Dammit! any time someone says a game is hard to play I want to play it. I still have my 3ds copy from @Missile I've been needing a reason to plug in the 2ds again.

Also how is Frankenstein easier on stage 31 than the first time through?!? Well off to see how difficult stage 32 is 😉

So my brother had to move in and now he's on house arrest, long story. But he cleaned out his old room where I had a bunch of stuff everywhere, he found my old Coleco Telstar, with the AC. No idea if that thing works anymore, but I'll sell it cheap if anybody wants to mess with it.

Sorry to hear that sir 😞 I have been spending every extra dollar every month (and then some) on all kinds of things, so I know how it can be.

I'm gonna have to get myself in better shape. Need to drop a few extra pounds, start stretching again, exercise and eat better. Degenerative back crap doesn't heal itself so I've got to put my body in a position of strength, put less pressure on my neck and back. I'm a scrappy fighter so I'll find my way out. I just triggered a pinched nerve this week and it feels like when you bang your funny bone but like where your butt and back and hip all meet. Then like a running numbness/funny bone bang type pain run down my right leg to my right foot. All I saw were the X-rays showing how close my vertebrae were in two places. Meaning the disks in between are beginning to deteriorate. A mild one in my lower back and a substantial one at the base of my neck. I still have to go for MRI's. They just gave me a taper of prednisone in the hopes that it shrinks down the disk and takes pressure off the nerve. I was just hoping I needed a chiropractic adjustment looks like I might need a back-e-odomy.

So I'm trying to follow along, have you had the game paused/save stated and you beat it twice now? Or is this all in one sitting every time? I think you're winning who has played Castlevania the most then. I don't think anyone else did the hard loop.

Those things are not good and I hope they can be fixed to keep you pain free and functioning normally. I've been eating vegetarian and have lost more weight but it doesn't look like it too much because I'm probably also losing muscle and not retaining as much water. I used to do pretty much only hard labor for jobs so I know about the stress that kind of labor can put on your back your joints and all your cartilage. Are you sure you don't also have sciatica or whatever it's called? I know I have pains in my lower back and they run into the butt muscle and into the legs as well. I've had it for years on and off I'll re-injure it on either side but I've had it for like 15 years on the right side.

It can be a nightmare when you need to do things and you can barely move without excruciating pain.

Anyways I do hope it's not a badly slipped disc and if it is I hope it can be fixed and heal properly. And again I really do hope you feel better sir and get all the proper care you need.

Yeah it was on pause on my retron, so yeah I had it on pause in between doing other things and yeah I beat it twice and started a third game. The last two stage sets (5&6 The Grim Reaper stages and the Dracula stages) aren't any harder at all but the first four are. (Not so much the Mummy stage but the other 3 are going to piss you off)

So the hard loop isn't too bad if you want to go for it. And if you have the time set aside.

You're going to have to fix the displays. It doesn't matter if they still work, there's a ribbon cable held on with glue that always fails. If the displays are glitchy, try to get a discount.

This guy fixes them for $20 and has some pictures showing the process. His method and pictures are better than the other guides out there that said to dissolve the adhesive, etc. Just push it back with an x-acto knife.

Yeah they had a bunch of watchers and weren't gonna last. I bought them within hours of being put up. The big thing with stuff like this is even finding a seller willing to ship, so much local pick-up only and this seller seemed much more competent (and the speakers in better condition) than the other listing I had been considering.

I got an extra, but you can probably just get it at 6pm without paying double shipping from me. It didn't go as fast as super popular games. I also have to pay an extra $0.82 county tax because I live in the same county as LRG so my cost is higher than anyone else you could get it from frown

It's cheaper though (possibly the first time in LRG history). PA had it shortly for $27.99 when LRG announced it (I had a price alert) but not right now.

Flame in the Flood sold out fastest of all, a game that was available on PC last week for $1 and only runs at 30fps on consoles despite looking like a PS2 game. Gotta have that physical US release or death. PA isn't an option!

I paid $34.98 shipped which is just a hair cheaper than LRG. Basically the same difference I just think it's funny that the game had an unlimited Asian pre-order, but people are tripping over themselves to buy the LRG release.

Ninja Gaiden prob about 8.5.

There's another Ninja game I've been dying to replay. Maybe I'll do that instead. Doesn't seem like anyone else is playing other Castlevanias for the month.

Oh crap. Did someone say easy bosses? I'm onboard.

I like shadow of the ninja better than ninja garden. But I've been historically bad at video games. I'm a pro at contra these days cause I've run through it a million times but I like shadow over gaiden because it's forgiving. Still incredibly tough just without a lot of the bullcrap deaths. I hear the famicom version of ninja gaiden III is pretty spectacular unlike the watered down version we got here in the states.

That's okay it's still literally one of the best video games I've ever played so if I love it that much other people are bound to hate it just as much. It's a steep learning curve for sure and when you get older you have less desire to play games that could have been easier to control in the first place.

But since I played both Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden a lot when I was younger it was easier to invest in those old school control dynamics since a lot of games played kinda like that.

Oh ya, it's definitely easier, doesn't mean it's not cooler!

I like the music and art better. As far as design, I think it's arguable.

Ninja Gaiden difficulty level = 8? Shadow of the Ninja = 2...maybe 3. lol

Again the Japanese version is supposed to be infinitely better. I've been playing the us version a lot trying to get better and it's tough I've been up to 15 a few times but not passed it. I can get rid of it. I really enjoy it for some reasons but it's filled with flaws.

Well I believe there's better music and detail but what I was talking about is the "whimp" mode where when you take a hit you aren't thrown back nonsensically. It levels the playing field and takes a cheap element out of the game.

I just said Metal Storm to say something that isn't "mainstream" (although it was on the cover on Nintendo Power, so whatever to that). I still got crap for picking such standard games, lol. Battle Kid 2 is better than Metal Storm love

A lot of the newer releases are samey. The Galaxy games were great though. I do get becoming burnt out on something, but 3 and World are still all time classics which I can recognize even when I'm not in the mood to play them.

How can you even post smb1 and not smb2 on any list and expect anyone to take you seriously?

Yes the gameplay from smb1 is great although the controls are arguably worse than Castlevania in my opinion but there are a few things smb1 lacks compared to most of the rest of the series. 1. Mario (he literally looks like trash in this game) 2. Bowser looks like a joke character in this game compared to other entries in this series 3. The slippery controls! This game sucks on controls compared to the rest of the series where every other game is much tighter.

It's still fun to play but I can't imagine this game being on the top of anyone's all time SMB game list, probably actually at the bottom. It's a game everyone should have and play but it's probably not even in my top 20 or 50 nes games. Well maybe top 50 idk.

Top 3 NES games (subject to hourly change):
SMB1
Legacy of the Wizard
Shatterhand

Back story: I never played Mega Man, Zelda or Metroid as a kid. I've played all the NES entries as an adult but don't have the nostalgia for them that a lot of people do. They're really good games, but I don't get the sense of wonder that a lot of people who played these as kids describe.

I don't know that I could ever be sick of Mario or any classic game series. Certain things that I just don't play I used to get annoyed when people would tell me how awesome they were compared to anything I liked playing. Mostly Call of Duty I'm thinking of.

But other than that if you mean you just don't feel like playing any Mario games yeah I get that totally. I had Mario Maker on 3ds and it got a little old because I felt there were some limitations that totally reduced the ability to create anything you wanted. And it also ruined the replay factor for me. I had such high hopes and I still want to get it again but I wish there were more freedom to create in that game.

I grew up on Mario 1 and 3, it's like the only games I had. So I'm sick to death of them. I was happy to play ANY game not Mario. I guess that sense carried with me into adulthood. I also played Mario World to death, but the "ugh" feeling isn't as strong with World.

As far as my Top 3, I am really not trying to be different.

1. Bucky O'Hare
2. Jackie Chan
3. Rockin' Kats

Probably a mix of nostalgia and love.

The rest of the list: Ninja Gaiden 2, Shadow of the Ninja, Shatterhand, Power Blade, Monsters in My Pocket, TMNT II, Bubble Bobble, Contra, Super C....

I'm actually not a huge fan of the old Mega Mans, I need to CHARGE!

Shatterhand is ridiculously good on so many levels. Definitely a game that's collection worthy for an NES gamer. My understanding of the library is constantly growing but as of right now I would probably list my top 3 as:

Contra
Felix the Cat
Monster in my Pocket

Now granted I've actually beaten these games and run through them a bunch.

I'd throw honorable mention out there to Tecmo Super Bowl and Little Sampson (though I only beat little sampson using save states).

It's just more replayable to me. On every NES emulator I've ever played in a Javascript web browser in computer lab or put on a hacked PSP or Xbox, Super Mario Bros is probably the first game I played. I bought it twice on Virtual Console. You can play through the game in like 20 minutes and it's fun every single time.

SMB2 is great, but it's kind of long and there's boss fights, throwing vegetables, and jumping in vases to get keys and whatnot. SMB1 is nothing but run, jump, occasionally pewt pewt some fireballs. If I have the time to play through a longer, more complex Mario platformer, SMB3 unfortunately beats out SMB2 basically every time.

Waiting for other regular RTT peeps to post theirs.

Weird some people can't get into NES. Even if you didn't grow up on it, I know a ton of people who love it.

I guess in a way I can understand, because I can't play anything pre-NES. It's just isn't appealing to me.

NES is like the perfect mixture of nostalgia and good times. And also surprisingly high quantity of games I've never played,

Oh hey, $100 eBay Bucks!

EDIT: I think it maxes out at $100 per order, so actually you only need to buy a $1300 game to get $100 eBay Bucks.

Legacy of the Wizard is dope. Had and beat it awhile back. It might be in my actual top 3 (along with SMB 3 of course). I really don't like most NES games at all, so when I actually like and finish game, it's probably excellent. As for the third one, maybe a Megaman game, those were all very well designed and intuitive which I really appreciate.

If you haven't beat the games in your Top 3 this year, you should try to do it before the end of the year.

Legacy of the Wizard, more than ANY other NES game, gives me the warm and fuzzies when I think about it. That's why it's always on my favorite games list even though it confuses everyone. It's also the first game I mapped out on paper in its entirety.

I thought I was the only person who got this invested in certain games. I literally had to write out every item drop and stat on that psp mini game rpg to actually finish it. There wasn't enough concrete info on the Internet to actually pass this game without studying it myself. I literally had to catalog that game myself.

But, it was a labor of love. I've never gotten too bored of the challenge it presents even with everything I know about it.

Top 3 NES games:

Super Mario Bros. 3
Kirby's Adventure
Balloon Fight

On notes, I took a butt load of them during my first playthrough of Phantasy Star IV some 20 years ago. Nailing the combo techs for the first time was super sweet.

Slightly off topic: anyone got a game-only DDR Mario Mix that I can trade for? I bought a GC dance pad today because why not.

Hey everyone, just checking in to see if anyone has a switch FT. Regardless, I just wanna give you all a heads up that I'll be posting a sales thread sometime this weekend for some Vita titles and some of my Saturn imports that. It will be FT only towards a switch or FS. I'm still trying to go through and see what I'm gonna part with.

I figured you all might be interested so if you have any questions or interest beforehand, feel free to PM me and look over my collection listings for items. Most of my Saturn shmups won't be moving but several other oddities and some decent stuff is gonna go towards trying to fund a Switch.

Ugh I'm super jealous right now. My little homegirls may have had this version back in the day, but I don't remember ever getting to play it with them. (It's also possible they rented it for free from the blockbuster one of them worked at) Btw is DDR Mario mix the only GameCube dance pad game?

Speaking of which I finally got a 360 dance pad and keep forgetting to play it.

I really liked the first Duck Tales and was really happy when I got the remake on 360. I don't still have my cart of it (from like over 20 years ago) but whatevs. I always wanted to try the Rescue Rangers games too though.

The music, the art, the graphics, the lack of cheap deaths, better variety of enemies...I can prob list a couple more if I try real hard.

Pro tip: Stick to the Kusarigama, it's easier

Are you beating this on your own? Or with walkthroughs 😉 Haha jk, I honestly prefer playing some classics on my own unless they are a chore to get through (aka I'm not having enough fun to justify playing it for that long) or if there is some tiny thing I missed that I just have to find to pass the game.

I don't care how anyone else wants to play it's however you enjoy it is really all that matters. But in defense of Lunar it could just be the style of play. Like I prefer original Nes Ninja Gaiden and original Nes Castlevania over fancier newer entries because I love the challenge and the gameplay. Maybe he likes the way the game flows better.

The first 3 stages of Shadow of the Ninja I remember very well, even most of the hidden power ups.

The other two are pretty new to me, even though I know I've beaten it before.

But it's still a ton easier than NG.

Mind you, I am not demoting NG, it's still a very good game.

But Shadow of the Ninja is like a step above in almost everything except difficulty.

NOTE: It could also be my nostalgia speaking for most of these. I'll have to replay NG2 to see if I like NG2 better than SotN.

Actually one of the main reasons I love Castlevania better than Ninja Gaiden is the enemies. Sure I love both main characters in each game but the bosses in Castlevania are way better and most of the enemies throughout are way better as well. The jumping and freedom of movement is way better in Ninja Gaiden though, but I still much prefer Castlevania gameplay. Maybe it's nostalgia I'm not sure.

I don't mind the cheap deaths in Castlevania or Ninja Gaiden anymore either though so maybe that's just me.

DDR Mario Mix is the only GameCube DDR game, but there are a few on Wii. You can also use the Mario dance pad as a Wii Classic Controller and recreate the Arino's Challenge of playing World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros. using only your stocking feet. laughing out loud

I think I tried playing my Mortal Kombat games on Og Xbox with the dance pad lol. I wasn't very good if I remember correctly. But that is a good idea IF I ever find a GameCube or Wii dance pad (if that even exists) and I could probably get SMB 1 digitally somehow still right?

Btw I've been meaning to tell you or ask you, there was this exercise bike controller thing that was playable on the Wii and I was wondering if you or your husband ever played with it or even heard of it .....

https://m.ebay.com/itm/RARE-NTSC-Cyberbike-Cycling...

I was really interested in this a few years ago and literally would have started playing Mario kart and the game it comes with as well just to use it 😊 It's not cheap though and who knows if it's even something that would last very long.

Legacy of the Wizard specifically is essentially one giant maze you need to find stuff in, thus the map. It was fairly common for that type of game in that era.

If you've never played Blaster Master it's a classic.

But out of those I'd say Batman for sure. That game was made before destroying movie licensed games was an actual trend. I'm not saying it's great but I can't remember anything bad about it. I'm pretty sure I passed it but I was borrowing it and probably had video game magazine help.

Plus you are eventually going to sell Jackie Chan yes? If so you gotta at least play through it first.

And I'm sure you've already passed it a million times but super contra is always fun.

Fun fact: When I was new to this site, I mistakenly listed Legacy of the Wizard on my available page as Challenge of the Dragon (no idea how I got those two mixed up). A veteran trader - not anybody I've seen post in here - offered me Crystalis (cart only) for it. Just thought I'd share.

To be fair, I sent out some pretty dumb offers myself when I was new here.

I took down Shadow of the Ninja with 3 continues after 4 hours of trying. Just as fast as Lunar. I even found a secret useless power up after Lunar said they existed and I started whipping, I mean Kamawhatevering, walls. Great bosses, but I'm not a fan of the million HP enemies. One or two hits in my ninja games please. I'm a badass ninja after all.

My first trade was Resistance Fall of Man for Symphony of the Night. That was 9 years ago. My 3rd trade was Shadow Hearts for Devil Survivor DS though. Now I know better than to trade for Atlus games. Just wait for the 5th reprint.

Ok, there's a speedrun marathon of exclusively bad games happening all weekend. Right now the run is of the amazing Lunar Dragon Song. The run is 6 hours long, we're 9 minutes in. Go watch it. https://www.twitch.tv/bigbadgameathon

I think my first trade here was I bought a Dreamcast game for 25 dollars and I didn't play it very much. I could be remembering that wrong.

But I did once trade a Saturn system for some n64 games which was very much in his favor and I didn't care really. At the time things weren't worth what they are now and I had less money I was willing to spend on games. Still not my worst trade ever.

That would be some thief who lied about the condition of my games because he was trying to rip me off. He was just a liar and a thief. I followed Bills advice and just finished the trade once he sent whatever he felt like sending back. It wasn't like I could do anything about it after I had willingly sent him my stuff first. Obviously he kept the expensive stuff I sent and sent the other stuff along with a game he didn't care about back to me. It was all jaguar stuff but it was still worth a lot at the time. Even now who knows how much I could get for Primal Rage on Jaguar Cd complete? But even then it was not easy to find so I'm sure they didn't make a million copies of it.

So on the subject of NES. Was the NES classic ever hacked in any way where you could use it as an NES emulation machine? That would be pretty awesome with it's little controller.

I believe people were putting the entire library of Nes games on it. From what I gathered it sounded pretty cool. As far as playing it goes I mean, but I don't usually approve of this type of stuff. If Nintendo had made it possible to download more games to it legally, that would have been even better. When I first heard of the nes Classic my hope was that I could play any nes games on it somehow. But no, that would have been too much fun.

I hope the SNES Classic is able to be hacked as well. If I could end up with an NES and SNES classic hacked it would be a nice way to play a lot of those translated RPGs making them feel somewhat official because of the nice menu system with pictures of game boxes and the official Nintendo controllers. It's something I'd consider doing.

Odd thing to gripe about since there are a few enemies I can recall that takes even Simon Belmont a million whips. winking raspberry

Oh also, it has co-op mode.

Another DWIV love'er! I recall a person or two after a Nintendo Wii U in this thread. Well I am selling my Nintendo Wii U and have some very minty RPGs and top collectable games for U and Wii. Will post in Classified soon. I can't even keep up with new releases too many good games so taking another shave.

On the subject of awkward offers I've received a few like anyone else, can't really remember anything too insane sent through the offer system. Most of my bad offers are just boring low ball buy offers via pm.

I think all my trades here were fair at the time of offer except one. The other guy knew the values, but just wanted to be nice. I think I somewhat obscured it in the offer, so it might not be noticeable looking through my trade history.

Funny and sad: I was trawling local CL garage sale postings. Found one with a free CRT PC monitor. "Dell" so it could be anything from prebuilt pack-in garbage to a rebrand of something fantastic. But I have no idea, because this is seemingly the one item not pictured. Some things that are pictured: box of scooby snacks, hot wheels "limited edition" cereal box, Richard Petty Cheerios box...
