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

To play JRPGs and visual novels? raspberry No thanks. Too many of those in English that I have no interest in. Maybe I want to play some of the PC-FX ones ( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡)

My SNES Classic is still in "preparing" mode.

I'll stream Monster In My Pocket at some point in the next few weeks, and probably get mad at it.

So I went to check my order and just about had some palpitations. I forgot to switch to my new/current card after a security issue forced me to get a new one. Fortunately it's Amazon so I had 5 days to change it apparently. Fingers crossed.

I voted for it but what's the premise again. Whoever owns it has to play through it?

Just try to beat it if you can. If you don't have it, use emulation, borrow it or buy it. You have a whole month to do it so shouldn't be too difficult even for the busy bees.

So I was looking into theater seating but anywhere that sells it is basically looking to leave your butt gaping open. Which I suppose makes sense because it's super niche but blah, kinda sucks.

Just saw Killer Instinct was released on Steam today. Original was one of my top 3 fighters, never played this new one but I might have to grab it. Looks like it's the complete edition. Anyone else play it on XBONE? Thoughts?

Well it's like Street fighter except with repeatable type combos kind of. The graphics are surprisingly good but I never played it (aka got good enough) long enough to try my hand at online play. The combos are also surprising fluid and easy to pick up despite the repeating kinda complex nature of them. I've been meaning to play it more but everytime I end up playing MKX or Super Meat Boy or Tetris on Xbox One. But you will like the challenge of it for single player. IF you like mastering combos. That's part of the fun. But again it's linking a bunch of quarter circle SF2 type specials for huge combos. There is a lot more to it than that and a deeper more complex fighting engine with plenty of timing and specific counters but I never got that far. And I haven't played any of the season 3 characters but the brand new characters in season 1 and 2 were really cool for the most part. Of course the originals were a lot cooler than they used to be as well.

It's just hard to say it's as good as SF or Mortal Kombat but it's better than most other 2d fighters for sure. And just for reference MK9 (360) is my favorite fighter all time so if you didn't like that game my positive recommendation of Killer Instinct may not mean too much. But it's definitely a worthy fighter.

Don't really need another player as my current is pretty nice and I'd have to get lucky and spend like $200-ish for a sound upgrade or $1000+ for a meaningful visual upgrade.

However, I would be interested in a list of the movies. Would trade for or buy if cheap enough.
