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 had a CIB minty copy of Pulse Man back in like 2000, traded to @SideSwipe for god knows what. Now every once in a while, I send him a remorseful PM about it.

And like 5+ years ago, I bought a boxed copy from eBay, seller was in like Romania or Germany, it turned out to be a repro.

I got some sort of refund...don't remember how much, and have kept the repro ever since.

The cart is def repro but the box art insert...I'm 90% sure its printed, but 10% of me still hoping that is at least real.

Back then, prices weren't as inflated...relatively speaking.

It looks like people are scalping their one chip challenge chips for $50. And people are buying them. $50 for a potato chip. Makes Pulseman look reasonable.

Yeah but I'm talking about the ghost pepper chips.

And seriously sir if you wanted to pimp out anything you got going on YouTube that you want more views subscribers for buy that chip and take that challenge. I bought two bags today I'll send you my codes if you want to try to win a 50 dollar chip 😊

For a normal person they are hot, hence the warning. Normally I've been trying to get a little bit hotter with things like the Indian curries I make at home BUT I like hotter curries. Different people can take different amounts of heat and different types of spices. Most Mexican salsas I prefer medium maybe a little hot depending on the pepper. But I'm recovering from some serious stomach and intestinal problems so the only bad thing I've been doing to myself is eating hot food. Usually I make it myself with packets so I can control the suffering I will go through later 😉

Also my homegirl who is Mexican American had ONE ghost pepper chip and it started burning in her sinuses. She absolutely wouldn't eat another. She couldn't believe I finished them (it took a few days) and wanted to buy another.

Just because you can eat a whole bag I still need to warn other people in case they know they will have a hard time. I ate 6 chips today in a sitting and I had to wash them down with spicy queso chips 😍 Which are also delicious. I would eat more but I have to be careful my insides will kill me if I'm not careful 😉

Also you did finish Ninja Gaiden which is a difficult game as well. And Monster in my Pocket which is easy but not too easy. That one took me like three hours and I had to play it 3 times to pass it. But yeah it was at least in one sitting.

I'm glad you're giving castlevania another chance you'll be really proud of yourself for passing it.

I beat Monster In My Pocket in about 3 hours as well, I died on the final boss on my second playthrough so had to start over but it wasn't too hard overall. Was Ninja Gaiden an actual let's play game? I got to 6-2 when I played it casually a couple of years ago, but haven't returned back to it recently.

Yeah it's an actual lets play game. It was August I think and then Castlevania was September. But 6-2 is surprisingly easy once you get the timing and patterns down. Mostly if you know exactly where things will spawn it's pretty easy to repeat. It's actually easier than 5-2 maybe ..... Maybe not.

Secretly I just wanted to see everyone else suck at it. I think we had at least 4-5 people out of the group finish the game, that was a plus

I felt like it actually had the most people getting into it. Ninja Gaiden was so much fun to play through again too.

I know I was the only one who was really excited about Monster in my Pocket but I never had it as a kid and I loved those cards and to a lesser extent the toys as well 😊

I might try to go back and play the previous games, but I've beaten castlevania recently enough that I do not care to try again. MIMP and NG are both I'd be interested in; I've never played MIMP (I'd need to buy it, get the everdrive, or emulate), and NG I beat as a kid but not since I was about 9 years old (game genie)

Okay @sharif challenge was accepted and completed! I finished the bag of ghost pepper chips (in less than 3 hours)! I will probably be suffering well into tomorrow lol. I only mean internally but I think that different bags aren't as hot as others too this one was hot but not as hot as the other bag I got a couple weeks ago.

MIMP is a little expensive to buy for a 3 hour playthrough. I got one from Prime for 35 that I will sell back to him whenever he wants. I like it though. But I definitely suggest watching a video at least before you try buying a copy.

I tried these a couple months ago, finished the bag but it was painful and I don't think I'd buy them again, too spicy.

I'm probably going to play it on the Nintendo Wii U anyway because I don't feel much like either futzing with the Retron or turning benstylus' CDX into a modern art installation by sticking Pulseman and a Game Genie in it, plus trying to remember where I put that darn unlock code.

Lady and Gentlemen, start your Mega Drives (or X'Eye, Genny with Game Genie, Everdrive etc etc), i wonder who will finish first this month.

Tell me if you still like Mega Man better after you beat Pulse Man.

@DefaultGen, on a separate note, I think I am in love with NGIII's music. It's awesome of course but I think another big reason is that the music invokes a wave of nostalgia like no other, I wonder how much of NG3 I played as a kid to have this type of impact. I don't remember much of it except the familiarity of boss lighting up when hit and Ryu's big sword.

Spectrum is down in my area, my kids and wifey are asleep, I finally have the big screen TV to myself, I boot up Xbox One, load up Destiny, "You have to sign on to Xbox Live". Fudge it...let me play some....For Honor, "Critical error, the connection to Xbox Live has been lost"...

WTF, I can't play crap on XB1 without internet?

Basically I don't have the internet here on my phone and I just like watching Blu Rays or playing games like Tetris or Super Meat Boy on my Xbox One. They load up just fine without any connection. I can also play Mortal Kombat X offline.

But it is nice playing Mega Man X on a ps2 or almost anything else on a retron 😊 Or one of the many other random retro systems that I never played on the Internet aside from my 360 and Xbox One.

But honestly I may have NEVER had a gametz account if it wasn't for going online many years ago with my Dreamcast so I still see both online and offline gaming as very positive things.

Yeah the controls are super sketchy and the isometric perspective makes that game way more challenging than it should be.

Okay seriously what day are they shutting it down on?

Also are they shutting down the Wii U VC on the same day as well? Please forgive my ignorance on this but I don't go on any other gaming sites besides Gametz and every once in a while gamefaqs.

The Pulseman rom on my everdrive would not boot, everything near it in then list worked fine and I changed some region setting in the everdrive menus but no luck. Going to have to download another one if i want tonplay it on oeiginal hardware. The same rom worked fine on my vita though, so I played through most of Japan. The controls definitely take some getting used to, and the Mario 3 style charging for your air dash and projectiles is interesting and unique, but it didn't exactly grab me as something I can't wait to get back to. I will probably play the full thing on vita rather than fudging with the everdrive, everything else I've tried on it works fine. Only probelm eith my vita is the game has some framerate and screen tearing issues, so maybe if I find time to mess with the e verdrive I'll go that route

Why? I would actually love a portable Nes Classic! Possibly even with a different lineup of games? Omg what if they let you play wireless two player with two systems?!? Or made it like the Supa Boy where you could still hook it up to the tv and plug in a couple of controllers?

This is a great idea Lunar IF they made some changes to the game lineup that is.

The other choices were NOT any better. There was only 3 actual choices and I already knew what I was getting with the other two and wanted a chance at something I would like.

There's no reason to give up if you game over.

I should have mentioned the Genesis version of Toki or Fantasia ..... But it's too late now I gotta hook up the Genesis later this weekend MAYBE even tonight but I was still hoping to screw around with MMX and the try out at least MMX 2 first.

I'm usually pretty open minded but I never liked Shinobi after playing Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2 I could give it a chance I mean I have access to it but I was way less forgiving as a kid if I didn't like something as much as something else I said well that's that.

It's nothing personal against you or anyone but Ninja Gaiden was just so much better than Shinobi to me. And I don't think I played shadow dancer anyways so maybe I'll check it out with an open mind.

To each their own castlevania 64 was one of my favorite Castlevanias possibly because it was the first I got to play since super castlevania besides symphony of the night. I love all the Castlevanias I've played I even liked the first one on gameboy.

To be fair mega man X is pretty good and it's a lot easier than some of the regular mega man Nes and 360 games but it's a little bit of a grind. But I really do like it and am still going to keep playing it. I want that Hadoken 😊

I can't beat it without dying to the act 7 timer. The timer is by far the hardest part of the game. I haven't been trying lately though. I just play through the game for fun.

Also just died in Pulseman to the arcade auto scrolly stage. Time to grind through the boring levels again.

You die if the timer runs out. It fully resets when you die, so you've probably never died to it. It isn't an issue except for act 7, the longest act in the entire trilogy, on top of having 3 boss fights at the end. Beating it in 250 seconds is crazy. I can beat it without dying besides a suicide halfway through act 7 for timer reasons though.

I'll try beating it with no continues first. No deaths seems pretty hard. Maybe if I play slower and analyze every move.

Well, now that I beat it, feel free to drop some pro tips in spoiler tags!

IGN reviewed the Virtual Console version of Pulseman, giving it a score of 8.0 out of 10, therefore receiving IGN's Editor's choice award. In the review, the author praises its graphics as "one of the cleanest, most crisp and most attractive platformers on the Genesis" and that the game "isn't just fun, it's electric."

Yeah I thought his name was something similar to that 😊

It's a good series. Though honestly I only remember playing the first two a lot as well as the one on 360 samurai showdown sen is it? I like that one but I had a harder time with the 3D aspect and the characters weren't as exciting to me. No little Cham Cham

Alrighty, I'm done with Pulseman. It sure is a lot faster going through the levels knowing about dashing to charge. Also figuring out you're entirely invincible while dashing, doing the up jumpy thing, and in Voltorb mode makes the game easier. I usually read the manual before playing a game angry

Alisia Dragoon was from Game Arts. Great game, but very hard. And the Japanese box art is gorgeous. (I own the US version.)

In addition to Pulseman, Game Freak also developed Mendel Palace and Smartball. But Pokémon was what both put them on the map and nearly did them in. GF was very nearly the victim of its own success as they worked to meet the demands of a template for Pokémon's future: a worldwide release, spin-off games, AND a sequel. Satoru Iwata did a LOT of the heavy lifting back in the day to not only make it possible for Gold and Silver to be finished, but also fixed some bugs and created tools to allow Red/Green to be localized. His team at HAL Laboratory made it possible for Pokémon Stadium and Snap to exist.

Games like HarmoKnight and Drill Dozer are likely made to allow "smaller" projects their time to shine and keep the Game Freak staff from getting burned out. It certainly helps that they're fun. (Recommended reading: Iwata Asks: HarmoKnight)

Back on topic...

I bought Pulseman as a delayed college graduation present to myself 11-12 years ago. It was $60 shipped from Singapore then. I had no idea that it would go through the roof like it has. I played the heck out of it on Sega Channel and still bought it on Nintendo Wii Virtual Console Virtual Console years later because I was glad it was put out there for more people to enjoy.

Nah, just the ones you want to play almost anything on. For me it was Genesis, and PC Engine when I have one, still mostly is. N64, SNES, never got much use out of those.

Sonic Adventure 2 is a great third of a game. Sonic/Shadow were fun, Tails/Eggman were OK, Rouge/Knuckles can fudge right off.

For the first month of 2018, Let's really dive in and think about a game you have really wanted to beat for a long time but haven't for whatever reason. We will vote on 2-3 most popular entries.

You guys gotta VOICE your opinions. Don't be afraid to speak up.

Here's my vote for the first "Game of the Month" in 2018:

image

positive It's very accessible with iterations on the Super Nintendo, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo Wii Virtual Console, and Super Nintendo Classic Edition.
positive It's hard as balls, especially with the double play-through, which means it shouldn't be finished too quickly.
positive It's genuinely fun with a good amount of challenge.

I don't think it's illegal since I've been seeing that crap everywhere this year including as suggested posts on my Facebook feed.

But then again I'm not really sure since it could be something Nintendo could try to go after and make them shut it down. If they did I'm pretty sure Nintendo would win but I've been seeing a lot of them that look like Nes Classics this year.

Yeah I submitted a return request under not as described. Their last message they said they would process the return (like they have a choice) or do a partial refund and I said let's just do the return and I'm waiting to hear back.

If I was in need of a system I'd definitely have went for it. The seller appears to know what they are doing and I can't imagine a SCDR2 working properly without repair at this point. The main thing they might not notice is the sound being low. Hopefully it's been washed and recapped.

I've never really thought of it as a strategy game (I guess Wikipedia disagrees). Turn based console games are super boring, but Gain Ground is fun whatever the genre is.

Bold titles are shooters you can skip if you're not a fan. Shooters in italics you should get anyways because they'll probably make you a fan of shooters. Left out the obvious picks for NES/N64, left out SNES entirely because Wii VC didn't sell many of the great games the system SHOULD be known for and I'm salty.

I dropped $50 on PC Engine Titles alone and I needed to add another $20 to keep myself from crying. This PC Engine list is $170 by itself and I'd want to get all of those.

The X series in particular. And MM9 was godly, MM10 was...

The X series though. Soon as you hit MMX5, crap just doesn't go well.

It's a great game with no flaws, the best in the Megaman series.

One was a swap meet, one was in a box of old video games from my friend's basement. The Gemfire has rusted out pins and the Simpsons game has cigarette tar residue everywhere.

Megaman collections coming to switch.

If both of those and MM11 all come to switch physically, I'd get all 3. Would be nice to just own all games and play them on one system. Specially a nice portable system like Switch.

Okay, but really nothing to write home about, it's mostly just a rehash of X4, but with RNG and a timer shoehorned into the gameplay. X6 and X7 are garbage though don't ever try them

World in Conflict is free this week on UPlay and Assassin's Creed IV will be free next week: https://blog.ubi.com/get-two-ubisoft-pc-classics-f...

Does anyone remember how crazy it was when Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory was released for free? A whole game released for free (even if it was basically a multiplayer spinoff of RTCW). Trackmania Nations was pretty special too. I used to play the craptiest, bootleg free games like Cube or a constant deluge of TRIBES and UT mods looking for anything good that was free. Now it feels like we get free, full retail games every week. Kids don't know how good they have it.

Yes, that's exactly why I paid zero attention to the well written dialogue and moving cutscenes. So a playthrough is needed for me to catch up to the storyline. Like when did Irene and Ryu get together? Was it after she shot him that Ryu fell in love with her? Why does Power Blade guy make a cameo in NG2 and did he survive?

DiamondDave

The only legitimately good part of the story of NG1 was when Foster has his agents pick up Ryu after Smith dies in his arms, that was actually a fairly insidious, well-paced and written sequence, all the way through Foster's debriefing.

That gets an A+. The rest of the story in all the games is fairly throw-away crap, or so bad it's funny.

Neither OSCC or FM, the CRT looks fine with Svideo/component/composite for now. Everything is stock, video quality is not tops but very playable and nostalgic. Svideo and component for everything that supports it stock, and composite for the rest. I have a 5 port switcher, and the receiver has 5 other inputs.

I currently take out the system I want to play, plug in the video from the always hooked up coord cluster in the cabinet below the tv, and then plug in AC next to it. Not much trouble, and I typically take one out and play it until I finish the game, then put it away. I rarely want to have two out at once, let alone switch between them.

The bowing sucks, I bought those 4 shelves from the shelving section since they have the plastic coating and look nice, but they don't support the weight, so that's why some of the boards are unfinished wood - they are sturdier and I plan on painting them down the road.

These modular wire shelves are kind of neat. Not cheap but not crazy, better than using up a giant IKEA cube for every tiny NES Toploader and Dreamcast. I can't really use them, but thought someone here might. Maybe I just like shelves too much.

Just kinda figuring it out right now. Newer and handheld definitely are going to stay as I love handhelds. Right now thinking of purging 3DO, and WiiU + the few top Wii + WiiU games. As well as OG Xbox. Currently trying to sell 3 pristine more expensive games, Rayearth, Persona 4 vita solid gold, and Trails of the Sky Premium psp.

Well I currently only have those 3 games listed in their own thread (so the title appears in the search thread). I will mention if something special pops up for those that read this thread.

I'm gonna be in home theater audio bliss next week so I might not sort through everything right away.

It's all good you should take some time to enjoy yourself, I'm in no hurry anyways. Lord knows I already owe and I'm working on another huge buy to pay for the next two months after Christmas already.

So it would just be stuff I'd have to sell to buy, but I always liked that sealed Shadowman 64 game even though the Dreamcast version seems better after playing both.

I definitely know but I also know it would still be sealed for a long time 😊 Which is almost sad since it's such a great and seriously overlooked game.

Yes that is the reason for selling. Many of these I might not even get to, they deserved to be played.

I definitely wanna pick up MKR at some point, but at its current going rate going to have to be some kind of partial trade to get me to ante up. I don't think I could stomach that much cash going out for one game! Not nearly on the scale of that time @Lunar picked up Keio though.

Keio was prob my most expensive purchase, right next to Wondermega, which I bought and sold twice.

First off, I've been told that snarkiness is one of my better features. Second off, my intent was to better publicize Gypsy's sale 'cause I know how much y'all like to buy ol' video games. Neverthess, I truly apologize for coming off as rude to Gypsy or anyone else in this thread; y'all are a pretty cool bunch of cats 'n' kittens. cool smile

I can't blame you. I can't even hold onto anything worth $200 anymore generally. I still have stuff like MKR but I got it cheap.

I have a separate CRT for light gun games. No need to ruin my entire setup with inferior outdated technology when I could have that pixel precise, perfect rectangle, no scanlines, no convergence problems, bigger than 20" image at the cost of a few ms of input lag.

Any reason to have this when I have YouTube red /music unlimited? Better quality?

I prefer to not listen to my music on Youtube, for sure. I think Spotify uses Opus for audio streaming? When you kick it up to high quality it sounds very very good, and the music selection's basically like an instant digital library with JUST about everything you'd want and some really on-point music suggestions with the Weekly Mixes, great for discovering new artists or unknown favorites from ones you already knew. Deadmau5 - Polaris is probably my Crap Where Was This All My Life song of 2017, heard it balls deep (45hrs) into my Persona 5 playthrough (Great feature of the PS4 to be able to dump game music in lieu of Spotify when you need a break!)

I've never regretted paying for Spotify. It's a solid service to support, and if you don't mind ads even the free version's alright, you just have less control over what plays when (only so many skips per hour, etc)

I mean, unless you want 3 kids to blab about random crap for 27 minutes and then run out of things to talk about, I think one of the things podcasts do which you may not see unless you're behind the scenes is they have a structure with talking points that they try to move through. Moderation in this case isn't like "You're out of line, let's get back on topic!", it can be a thing, but mostly it's to have a good idea of where you're going in the discussions, and some vague idea of how long you want this to go on. A list of stories or questions.
