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 grilled him, he got salty but he stands firm!

Watching a Nausicaa subtitled screening. Apparently I missed that RWBY had a fourth season so now I'm salty. Even though I haven't watched the first three seasons (that I own)

Lol I felt the same way except about I would have thought Ninja Gaiden was pretty perfect except for playing Castlevania at the same times.

The only drawbacks about Ninja Gaiden are the enemies, they are just kinda weird for a ninja game. I love almost every aspect of it, it does have weird little glitches that it feels like the Tecmo Team worked into the gameplay somehow. But the main thing about Ninja Gaiden is it is FUN!

I was going to say Silent Hill OG, but I think that and FF falls in the Horror category, not necessarily Halloween? What say you?

Ummm what?!? Horror is Halloween and vice versa!

If you want Silent Hill you vote for it like a 3 though my Fatal Frame 25 one was just because I mentioned it before so this time it was more like a joke.

The votes are kinda all over the place anyways.

Edit:

Universal Studios, Knotts Berry Farm and Magic Mountain always have horror themed Halloween events every year.

One year at Universal I think it was they had Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Nightmare on Elm Street themed horror mazes with some others as well. It's always fun to have scary Halloween stuff for adults 😊

200+, but those generally need (or soon will need) some work done unless it's explicitly stated caps are new. Duos use some leaky-ass capacitors, which can fudge up the main board if left untreated, or more noticeably produce quiet audio issues.

Duo-R/RX both use much better parts and are generally much more agreeable, but kinda ugly. While those run $300-350, they get my seal of approval for being good work horses if you get them in good shape. About the worst that happens with those is having to re-solder the I/O port which takes about half a fudging second.

So someone is selling a PCE Duo for 212.00. He did not state anything about the caps. Should I pass?

And if I'm lucky enough to be getting to play Monster in my Pocket "Prime aka Gomez" I will gladly buy it from you if it's still available and send you the extra money with your game sir. 😊

I hate to part with it because it's a classic. Only complaint is lack of an upgradable weapon but it's only a minor complaint. I've still got it. We can work that out. Shoot me a PM.

Assume the worst and consider it needing caps ASAP. If you consider 212+ 75+ to cap it is it worth it to you for a hair under $300? I would say so.

If it's a Duo-R then you shouldn't have to worry about caps.

I beat Castlevania III. No idea on my time. 5-7 hours? One of the hardest NES games I've seen the end of. I won't say hardest I've played because you know... The Mutant Virus! I'd put it just below the first game. @DiamondDave I think you're the only person in the CV thread to put the first game above the third too. yes

That looks cool as hell! I think the heavy price tag is because it's looking like something that you can do a lot more than just retro gaming with. I think maybe their idea is to get other popular titles on their system as well. And then surf the Internet and probably other tv related stuff too.

At least that's what it LOOKS like. I'm wondering why there aren't even pics of at least a prototype keyboard or controller, maybe they just wanna build up suspense and have something new to show everytime they sent out a new announcement? Idk but I have high hopes that it will be very cool.

And I personally kinda wanted one of those BUT no one else really even heard about Ouya ..... Atari has a lot of classic titles if nothing else to stir up some added interest.

I can get a Switch for $300. I'm not paying $300 for an Atari/emulation box that runs Linux. That's asinine. It's counterintuitive. You can emulate Atari games with a fudging potato inside a metal box with a VGA cord plugged into it. Or if you like a wood finish, put the potato inside your fudging bread box!
