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 ͡°)

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.

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.

LD is for when you want something better than VHS (by a lot) but also not as good as proper DVDs. Maybe if you accept THE CHALLENGE (of spending $8,000+) you can get it almost looking like DVD. Also you will generally pay more just to ship a LD than a BD cost. Just fun times all around really.

The good Star Wars LDs are great though. Unaltered. Also a few weird corner cases where stuff is trapped on LD (not much now honestly) and some instances of anime movies where the LD is cheaper than the oop and scalped to crap DVD.

The big thing is a lot of LD's are the best transfers of movies. Blade Runner was the best until the new UHD release.

If I see these when I'm at game shops what are the prices you want them for? There's probably a couple hundred or more nes carts at this store locally but they are just randomly in a case no order and I have to ask what each games price is. The cool thing is there may be a tiny bit of wiggle room to haggle but not a ton. For reference I was quoted 10 dollars for Fox's Peter Pan and the Pirates 10 for Solomons Key and 55 for Whomp Em all 3 cart only.

Also you're looking for cart only right?

I'm just looking for whatever market value is on eBay or better. most of these are not super expensive carts or anything, with the exception of Little Samson, Flintstones 2, Frankenstein, Last Action Hero, Nobunaga II, Cliffhanger, MULE and World Champ. And yeah, looking for cart only.

Lul.

Systems are the one thing I just about always hold on to. PS4 and Sega CD are the only systems I have only one of, in fact. Counting system variants as the same thing. So I count 1 DSi and 2 DS lites as just having 3 DS systems.

I made a little 3D printed hinge that clamps onto the holes in a Sega case to replace a broken one. It works pretty well. I'm going to tweak it some more and start putting them onto games I've scavenged the good cases from to make them more presentable raspberry No glue, so no permanent damage if you really want to protect your crapty broken hinge case.

I did end up using the $20 ThinkGeek gift card I got from the Virtual Box on some nice plushies, and also managed to get the Metroid amiibo set after TRU/FedEx dropped the ball on the set benstylus ordered though, so it wasn't a total loss.

The amount of games, plus 2 controllers is pretty amazing value. I just wish Nintendo would produce enough for demand.

You can't change people's behavior but Nintendo can do more to alleviate the situation.

Oh also, no input lag, amazing emulation. I am tempted to get rid of my SNES set up(which is close to $500 I've invested) and just play off of the Classic.

Yep, that was my biggest issue. Same problem that people with shelves full of games have; they don't touch 90% of them. Put a stack of NES carts on top of your NES and see how varied your NES gameplay gets.

If the SNES Mini ends up being moddable like the NES Classic was, that'd be sweet (Hell, I'd do it just to play NES games, but putting a few SNES titles on it that I wanted to play through is also cool)

Yes you do, the Star Wars version supposedly has special R2-D2 sound effects. I believe that makes it hold its value over time as well. Keep it in great condition and I'll bet it goes way up in value over time.

I've never owned either system variation I've only ever owned 360 slim black versions but I would love different variations I just don't need them right away. There was a red Resident evil 5 for instance I wanted to buy off craigslist within the last year or two. I didn't end up getting it because I didn't NEED it but I probably would if it magically appeared again.

Well it's up for grabs on the site. I'm a purist and would want the matching controller and Kinect. Which it's a crapshoot to get it included.

Flash carts give me the opposite problem, that I want to play them all at the same time because they're all in the console. If I hit a roadblock, it's too easy to back out of the game and play something else. If I put the cart in the console it's like saying "Today is The Mutant Virus day. We're playing nothing but this crap."

I've been doing this thing where I will not buy another PS4 game until I beat the ones I have. I have now beat every PS4 game I own (admittedly 6 games). I'm looking at Ys VIII next.

yes Curiously the price for the Super Comboy version's never really taken off, while the SNES version obviously continues to rise in price as time goes on. It's as good as the US version imo, long as you've got those security tabs removed from your super nintendo. Better than SFC for obvious language-related reasons.

I got an extra to flip at cost, might not even be needed. Stock seems plentiful.

The US/JP price differences on games like Tonma, Bonk 3, Terraforming, Cotton, Dungeon Explorer 2, Soldier Blade etc... are fudging nuts. All perfectly playable in Japanese.

Of course every easily playable and good Japanese game is at least $40 complete now as well. I need a time machine.

I've played through NG3 once or twice every day this week and I'm convinced it's slightly easier than NG. It's tough to go back and deal with jumpy green dudes and guys that actually shoot you and birds after all the slow and stationary enemies in 3. I guess I have one more day of these then I'll move on to scary games. Maybe.

The first Ninja Gaiden really isn't that hard if I could beat it in less than an hour beginning to end even with quite a few continues. Now I'm wondering how bad Ninja Gaiden 3 really is. Are you playing the original nes version or the snes one?

I was figuring somewhere between 10-20. This way, I'd have some backups in case I find more battered cases with games.

Ya I've noticed it. It seems to take some time after it's listed to for It to show. How long as that been listed?

I contacted Amazon about it and they assured me it would be applied even if it wasn't showing yet. So far even the ones I've placed before it's shown have had it show in the order details before it ships.

It's part of their campaign to make people stop using Prime and move over to GCU at Best Buy. I'd take them up on that.

I'm not sure how long this one in particular has been up but I wouldn't take the chance on it "being applied" without showing on the receipt. After a few more examples last night, I'm convinced it's special edition types. This same game, regular edition, shows the discount on the same page. Bummer.

I'm surprised they are getting rid of more features as they get stiffer competition from other vendors offering better perks, just backwards thinking. I have GCU as well which is where I have been buying those I didn't get on pre-order or didn't have the discount shown from Amazon anyway. The biggest issue I have with BB is their crapty packaging. They routinely send collector's edition/boxed games in padded envelopes. I've had too many crushed boxes from them so I don't buy those from BB even with the discount.

Most people buy Amazon without even thinking about it now, or price checking, or seeing if it's available local for less, so they're in a good position to just start taking advantage of people not paying attention to that stuff anymore. At this point it's pretty much impossible to fight them, you'd have to advertise specifically against them, and do what they've been doing for ten or so years and just throw money into a hole until you have enough of a market share to not have to do that anymore. But then they'd be the next Amazon, and they'd get re-Amazoned by Amazon, probably. It's a mess.

I don't buy crapty overpriced CEs so I don't run into the crushed box issue much (not a dig at you, it's a dig at the game companies taking advantage of people who are attracted to large cardboard boxes that are prone to damage during routine crapty low-paid carrier handling).

I'm on NES. I played the FC version too when I was a wimp, but that game's difficulty is comparable to Kirby's Adventure, it's a little silly. Learning the game is tougher than NG with the harsh death penalty and continues, but after you beat it once it's easier.

Yeah most of us here look for the best price but there are so many people that don't care and go on autopilot. As far as Amazon throwing money away, I don't know how big of discounts they get with UPS/Fedex but I always enjoying buying a $9 Blu-Ray from them and having them 2-day it.

They've been ending them earlier recently. This is a rare double month. That might mean we don't get one next month.

They're really that bad? Hmm well I guess they probably are I haven't played the game that I know of so I guess it would be a waste of my time as well.

I really do wanna play almost everything here (maybe dark wing after I get some Disney games that are higher on my list first though)

I've been thinking about starting up adventure island 2 some more this month but Prime was right it does take longer than one sitting if you've got other stuff to do lol.

Are you going to play any of the other Halloween games from the multiple choice list? I've been meaning to play Friday the 13th for awhile now but idk. I have to buy a copy first lol.

Adventure Island is a mountain for another day for me. I'll probably play the Gargoyle's Quest games and other Halloween related Nintendo games, yeah. First up is Nintendo 64 Castlevania though.

I've always wanted to play the special edition. Isn't there like a playable werewolf in it?

And @creagan has a really decent soft reserve on a gba Castlevania I've never played and would really like to 😍 I'll probably bump it to the soft reserve and see if I can (hopefully fingers crossed since everybody is mad at me 😄) still win it. I think it's complete too 😊

Copies of Stunt Race FX have almost doubled since the SNES Classic was announced as people pillage them for their FX chips to make Star Fox 2 repros. A moment of silence for our fallen Stunt Race carts.

image

Fun fact: Because of some hardware things I don't understand with donor compatibility, a Star Fox 2 repro actually runs worse than a well-emulated version of Star Fox 2. So a repro is actually a less authentic experience than the SNES Classic.

Yeah I collect too mostly with the eventual intention to play but I have like over 20 systems all over the apartment and I end up playing nes carts on a retron (and not much else other than Facebook games on my phone) lol. So a lot of stuff I end up trading or giving away that I don't just straight up hoard.

But I have finally started playing nes at least I have been getting my butt whooped by adventure island 2 on and off for the last few hours though lol. I don't remember it being this difficult, but compared to the first adventure island difficulty level maybe this one just "seemed" easier.

So the SNES Classic passes my test, I'm very very happy to see they fixed the weird-ass audio latency issues present in the NES Classic. Plays like a dream and that controller feels perfect. Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts was totally playable, easily my worst fear when I saw the game list.

Solid buy. Hope it gets a good restock so people who are looking for one can get it. Only gripe is that it leaves a border on the top and bottom regardless of screen setting but that's seriously the only bad thing I can say about it. Great assortment for the price. Thanks again, Lunar. Very happy to have something with some good games that's just plug and play. smile

People's hands are just different shapes and sizes I liked the jaguar DC and og Xbox controls just fine but I think if you take something like an og snes controller that was made for smaller hands just like the nes controller was AND add something like shoulder buttons where someone has to grip the controller more and it's smaller? Yeah that's going to hurt more if you have bigger hands than a nes control with no shoulder buttons.

Sometimes when I play super meat boy with the Xbox one controller for long sessions my hands cramp really bad especially my right one. Been playing adv island 2 off and on for hours 0 hand cramps. Nes controller is just simple and perfect.

@Lunar the PS2 with RGB looks so good IMO there is no need for a smaller screen. (I mean unless you want to portablize it hah). Not the case for PSOne, it really benefits from the small LCD.

So Lunar it looks like I'll need one of those scart switches soon. OSSC is working for me, tested PS2 and SNES so far. And I have a pretty large entertainment center for my OLED so I can fit 4/5 systems at once in there with comfortable room left over. Can you link me to that scart switcher brick you showed earlier? Also, is it a smart switcher? Can I have 4 systems all plugged in and it will just send video of whichever one is turned on?

This is what I have:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&lo...

It automatically switches to the newest power source. If you power down the newest power source, it goes back to the previous power source.
You can manually switch of course. There is no remote.

Haha, well I think a lot of us think it's worth it otherwise we wouldn't pay $180 for a scart switch lol winking raspberry

I truly think it's worth it when you can play a Super Nintendo on a 65" screen and have it look really sharp.

It's also a splitter (at least the one I have)! Two products for the price of one! I just hate buying something, it ends up being crappy, then having to buy another one. We don't all like wheeling and dealing and rotating our stuff like you!

Also no 480p with RGB SCART, so I think component is preferable for PS2.

I thought RGB was 480p and it was component that was 480i for PS2. And for OSSC owners, I have been fiddling around switching to line doubler line tripler but I do not notice any difference at all when I click "OK". I'm not even sure if it even changes anything.

When people stop drooling over them and enabling that kind of behavior. When I can just waltz into the friendly Henderson GameStop and just buy one. When people stop insisting they must have multiples for their spouse, each of their children, and their neighbor's cousin-twice-removed's dog.

I had a chance at trading for one but was ultimately denied. So... I will just wait. Like a normal person.

RGB can be 480p but maybe not the RGB you are thinking of here. YPbPr is extremely versatile.

You guys don't have a clue. I can't buy what's not available except at an absurd premium or at ungodly hours. And I refuse to do either because I shouldn't have to. This thread is nothing but a junk-measuring contest, and its participants are a big contributing factor as to why I don't do much here any more. So... I'm out.

My 4 year old plays Breath of the Wild all the time. Well, "plays" is a loose term in this case as he runs around smashing stuff, uses that magnet moving beam thing, lights stuff on fire, explores the open world and is always looking for more arrows just to shoot straight up in the air as soon as he picks them up. Asks to play every day when he gets home from pre-school. Text would be the biggest challenge on the classic stuff for sure but nothing wrong with starting them early on the good stuff!

That's awesome! No way mine could get that far in Punch Out. He's been playing SMB, Mario 64. Little Big Planet (Vita) and BotW the most over the last month. He's getting a DSLite for his birthday and a couple loose games so he can have his very own system to play on.

Not sure where the hostility is coming from but no one here, at least to my knowledge have ever been rude to you. I suggested the trade in and buy since you inferred that the SNES Classic was readily available at at your friendly Henderson GameStop. If you didn't get one that's too bad, but maybe blame Nintendo? As far as I know, no one here tried to scalp a Classic(at least not openly), in fact, quite a few people offered it at cost plus shipping.

Sucks that you didn't get one. But may be drop the entitlement attitude, and not call everyone a participant of you not able to get a Classic?

While you're having a fit, I should note that I've gotten both a US model and a EUR model SNES Classic from people in this thread, by sending offers that were accepted. Because people in this thread are happy to help out each other if they can. Acting like this is probably not a good way to make friends who are willing to help you get what you want, we're all in this same crap show with you believe it or not, it's just that some were obviously more lucky than others. You'll note they did NOT go to eBay, as they easily could have!

Nobody's gonna hand anything to you, though. You've gotta wheel to deal.

Gypsy was actually in talks with me for that UK SNES Classic before you swooped in and grabbed it. And I am willing to bet that he didn't mention that, did he?!
I've helped many people over the years, so don't go playing the innocent here.
I'm leaving the site anyway once my current trades are done.

That's not funny, that's actually really mean sir. Because her and a few other people on gametz really wanted these at retail and couldn't get them in any way shape or form. I don't know if it was your intention but that's really just rubbing salt in the wound.

Perhaps if you decided you liked one snes classic less than the other you might be willing to sell one?

No, probably because instead of being in talks for one, I sent an offer that he accepted. The fact that someone was talking about maybe doing a trade somehow could be seems irrelevant frankly.

Honestly I was just making fun of the melodrama but obviously this is something she took very, very seriously. I also wasn't aware at the time that the trade I pended was the unit in question.

Look, I worked on Friday too, and I even got up early to scope out a couple locations before going in, and I wound up empty as well when I walked into the office. But that's not my fault, and that's not the fault of anyone on the site who's offered up a unit that she didn't get. If there wasn't an agreement, there was nothing for her to "lose".

Honestly this thread's been going a VERY long time without any serious drama, and I'm sad to see the streak break. But nobody did anything wrong. At all.

>Perhaps if you decided you liked one snes classic less than the other you might be willing to sell one?

That was actually precisely the idea once I pended the trade for the unit style I had originally wanted.

I sincerely hope you don't leave the site, you are one of my favorite people to talk to here, and with all of my and many other people's negativity on this site all of your positivity is like a much needed breath of fresh air 😍

I'm still going to try to procure an snes classic to trade you for the stuff we were already talking about trading. You will get one don't worry, like it is for you, it's a little more difficult for me to swing one of these as well but I have plenty of things I don't need I can (and honestly should) move towards one or two or maybe three of these silly things so I can trade them to people who want them.

Anyways I always enjoy our talks and I know a lot of people like you here I do hope if one of us can get you one you will stay. I'm also happy that you're always trying to help me find things I like so I in turn would love helping you get one of these especially since you have plenty of things I wanted anyways that we've been in talks about for awhile now 😍

When I look at someone who disregards their peers with a statement like this:

>This thread is nothing but a junk-measuring contest, and its participants are a big contributing factor as to why I don't do much here any more.

...when they don't get what they want, and then talk about common courtesy, how are we supposed to take that?

Did you want me to cancel my trade...? After an offer was sent and agreed on while you were still "in talks"? Would that have made you happy? Would that have kept you from disrespecting participants in the thread? Because holding your respect and care hostage contingent on a SNES Classic trade seems pretty petty to me.

What on earth is happening here? Is this really over a SNES Classic? Why did everything get so personal suddenly? This has literally never happened in year+ history of this thread. It's interesting, because I consider this thread to have some of the nicest people on the entire site, I got my NES Classic from here at cost when I couldn't find one. I'm shocked there's an issue like this, especially since it involves people I respect on here. You're all reasonable people, I know that. I just don't understand what happened.

I'm with you, if Nintendo can't get it in stock and to me by normal means I'm perfectly happy with my SNES Jr W/sd2snes. Don't need no stinking save states anyways. My son is almost 5 and the hardest thing was getting him the dexterity to use buttons, as in his brain was programmed to use touch devices, buttons blew his mind lol.

Action Replay let you swap discs while the software was running, no swap trick needed. I bet Gameshark does too. I don't know why Swap Magic can't work the same way. Game Genie and Game Shark just locking on to your carts was way easier grin

9 posts out of 10 in this thread are "hey look what I got!". And re: common courtesy, I was referring to the trade, not this thread. If he would have told me the whole story, I wouldn't be nearly as upset. You don't offer something to someone to try to help than just up and take the first official offer you get just because it's shinier.

What? That's nowhere near true. Just read back the past few pages if you don't believe me. Sure, it's fun to show off every once in awhile, but it's mostly actual discussion and advice here. I get that you're upset, but throwing everyone under the bus is a low blow.

If you have two and they are both extra I need one as well, also do you still have that vita you were trading awhile back towards an snes classic?

I meant to hit you up before about both but the last few days have been a little crazy in bleedingviolet-land and before I asked you about any huge trades I wanted to see where I was at first with real life stuff and trades and money etc etc etc

Please let's talk 😍

Also @Wheels617 I still wanna eventually make a huge trade with you too for your jaguar but it might be next month when my siuation is more fluid.

May I suggest that we do something like NA did? Make a list (suggest a Google sheet) to list the needs and wants of who has one and who wants one and to connect one with the ones who need one?

As demand is fulfilled they get crossed off the list.

I for one would like one ,preferbaly a euro one.

Would like to trade one for one if possible:

RetroUSB AVS CIB

NES Toploader with matching controller (dog bone)

JUNGLE GREEN N64 with matching controller

Watermelon red N64 with matching controller

She's not throwing anyone under the bus. It's an exaggeration maybe but there is also a ton of tech talk here and that's part of why there aren't a ton of people who post regularly.

I think you guys are misunderstanding her frustration at this particular situation. I have no beef with anyone here or what you guys talk about but I also see things from many different sides. The shiny monitor setups DO exclude outsiders from thinking they might wanna join in, but I also like that you guys talk about this stuff because it makes you happy. It's a double edged sword and it doesn't mean I love this thread any less or dislike anyone for talking about it for any reason. You guys like what you like and if I don't get it I can always bring up other retro gaming stuff I'm currently doing to have other topics happening concurrently.

It's no big thang 😊

If you got the cash talk to @Gomez he's looking to move his toploader

And I would talk to @KingofGames about N64 variations I know he had some during the steals thread that were pretty sought after.

Yes, still have the vita. I was actually thinking of doing an auction for this stuff until I seen sailorneorune still needed one.

I think its a misplaced anger and expectation issue. Was there a pended trade between Gypsy and Neorune? Nope. Was there verbal agreement for a trade? Im gonna assume no, I'm pretty certain Gypsy wouldn't do that. If someone offered a better deal for things Gypsy actually wanted, instead of expecting him to hold it for me, I'd be totally happy that he found a good trade, especially since I can just wait to get one like a normal person.

In the end, there shouldn't be any hard feelings but i think entitlement and expectation got in the way.

If you did an auction on gametz with an snes classic I'm preeeeettty sure I could bump someone up to 300 for it lol. People hate me in auctions now and it makes me laugh I don't even know why. I'm only half joking about the 300 though but there's a few people that might snipe it from me just for bumping it up too high. Maybe 250? Idk lol.

But yeah I'd probably trade a ridiculous amount of crap for the vita, I have a friend who wants one and as long as I'm not spending money to get it I can give it to her for her son and she will be happy and hopefully accept it. I owe her so much in my life so this would make me happy.

I'm going to seriously start organizing and figure out my collection and hit you up. IF you prefer money we could do that too but not this month I still gotta get to the bank and make sure my deposit went through and pay my friends here first 😍

It's a lot more fun than it seems to read or hear about. Give it a chance with an open mind and it's pretty fun. The main obstacle (as with so many 3D polygonally challenged games of the era) to your enjoyment will at first be the camera, once you get used to how it acts the game is pretty fun. And I loved playing with the little girl in that game too. (I almost always prefer girl characters as my mains)

I'm fine with a trade if it's stuff I am really looking for. Allot of the stuff on my wanted list is very low want and I'm fine waiting years for the right opportunity to pick them up. I need to update my list, I'd like to get some more 3ds games.

I saw someone posting in the LA area on craigslist (whitefire and I are both in the LA area but he's in a different valley and we are pretty far away maybe over two hours if I had to guesstimate)
But I recently saw a craigslist ad (in our LA area) asking for help with almost the exact same thing. I now wonder if he's trying to put some really kick ass personal arcade system together and if that was also his craigslist post 🤔

Hopefully one of you guys can get him something great put together either way he's such a nice guy 😊

It's all good deadly alliance was the one I have less interest in I mean how am I supposed to eat my enemies when my Girl Mileena isn't even on the roster? Lol. I think you'll enjoy deadly alliance though as long as you don't expect as much kontent as the other 2 3D mks. At least it has Nitara and I think Kitana too.

Do you have a Crazy Taxi 3 sealed together with a guide book as a bundle? Curious because I haven't seen that.

No he just had the one deception and Deadly Alliance I knew they were available but I was hesitant to make any offers based on upcoming expenses and the fact I wanted a million things from that list. I have a copy of Mileena MK Deception anyways it's not a need but yeah it's a great price for a great game with a TON of Kontent 😍

How are you liking it sir? There's TONS of unlockables in that game btw.

I wouldn't have done anything but plus you anyways lol.

I don't care that it's just a collection piece as long as it makes you happy it's all good 😉

But @Lunar is right I gotta see about that ATM machine myself 😊

Is it more interesting to watch streams of games with commentary and maybe a face to connect with viewers?

It's just more troublesome to stream with the Twitch set up like @sharif does since it will need to be quiet in my house which is almost never

I like commentary if its right kind, like I cant take pewdiepie and ssundee for instance, to stupid and low-tier. Aris on the other hand is awesome, he comments on the game and does the occasional tip but rarely just rages out. it can be kinda interesting to have the streamer face down in the corner, makes the stream more personal and like you are actually interacting. but I feel you if you had kids and stuff running around that can be hard.

ive been wanting to start up a twitch channel for more mature gamers who don't like the silly stuff like pewdie and ssundee etc. a few people have said they would dig that kinda thing, having actual discussions and just like digitally hanging out.

Yea, I'm pretty boring during streams. It's fun watching Sharif play Castlevania, but I'll prob be alot less emotional

NOT FUN: pushing large CRT projectors in road cases up your lengthy driveway because the delivery guy couldn't get the semi up the driveway.

I'm FUDGING DEAD right now.

I think commentary can be really interesting, especially if you're interacting with the people in chat. And if no one is chatting, I'll just usually say what's on my mind, it's kind of a learned skill, the ability to talk to no one. But I personally find streams where you can interact with the streamer better.

Umm do you not have a four wheel dolly?

I used to be a mover so I still have a little baby four wheeler that's kind of useless here since I'm in an upstairs apartment. But yeah always be prepared and always assume they don't want to help you or even do their own jobs really, because really they don't and they don't care either. It sucks but people are kinda awful.

Yeah my legs were on fire lol.

Also the guy lost control and they dropped about 4-5 feet off the semi. They SEEM to be saved by being in the road cases, no obvious damage. I'll need to test though. These things are hueg.

These things are in road cases which have wheels. So it's not like I had to lift them at least. The issue was pushing them up my driveway which is at an incline and not paved. Each one w/ the case probably around 300 pounds or so.

Ouch 😞 Did they even offer to help you with the pushing? I cannot believe they dropped them 😞 That's straight up negligence and stupidity. But at least they had those cases. Hopefully you're right and they are still in perfect working order.
