new Thread Description
Wow, can't believe it's been more than a year since we started RTT. I feel like we have become a community of our own within GameTZ. We have our regulars and even some new comers. I hope 2018 brings us more like-minded retro gamers who will come here for a place of retro inspiration. When I started Retro Trade Thead (RTT), it was called "The Retro Trading Thread", kinda like how FB was "The Facebook", heh, I was just hoping for a group of retro gamers who share the passion and the thrill of collecting and playing Retro games. The result so far has exceeded my expectations and more. I am playing more retro games than ever and while my collecting is on and off, I know I have been enjoying more retro gaming in 2017 than my previous 5 years combined. I hope RTT members have similar experiences. 2018 will be an even better year, as we have established group events like RTT Secret Santa and our monthly Game of the Month, which is getting more popular as more people participate. I am hoping to bring RTT Podcast in 2018 where 2-3 RTT members will talk about monthly topics and other aspects of retro collecting.

Retro game buying and selling, collecting, playing, collectarding, upscaling, speedrunning....whatever your retro passion is, RTT will have a place for you and for everyone who participates in our discussions, whether occasionally or frequently, will continue to find value and fun in our thread.

Thank you for participating and making RTT the hottest topic every month in 2017!

Old Topic 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 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 put up the good fight. My games were pretty good. But I went 0-4. I went to the local game store and drowned my sorrows in the display case. I got Parappa on PS1 which I haven't played in 20 years. The timing in that game is weird as heck. How do you map 3 syllables to one button press?

Anyone interested in a TurboGrafx 16 turbopad and a Saturn 4mb card? Both look to be in VG condition but I don't have the system to test either, but if you are reputable here I'll take them back if they don't work. I got them both at goodwill outlet different times with nothing else related to either system to be found. Trying to get $50 shipped for both maybe?

Can you try to qualify in multiple states? I know Florida had some qualifying thing today.

For Parappa you almost need the CRT TV, as timing needs to be frame perfect. Which is the downfall of the remastered version on PS4...

Yeah, the top 16 of each state qualify (based on points earned in that state over the year). Trent qualified in like 8 states. I imagine he chose NC because we were the easiest pickings frown He's a super nice guy though.

I played on a CRT with headphones. The visuals are just weird. Parappas head is like 2/3 over the symbol to press at the perfect timing. I'm a bars falling down the screen kind of guy.

Yeah I love doing that. I used to have 2 turntables and just scratch around for fun. Got pretty good at it. And "mixing it up" in a funky way is a big part of the charm of that game for me.

I give Ys 3 on genesis a B- overall
First quarter is rough, gets good, then last boss is the worst.

Graphics are flat, but has moments of really cool effects and design. The gameplay is also all over the place with decent level design and variety but aweful hit detection and terrible enemy placement. It's very short and linear I didn't need any info to get through unlike 1+2. Story comes together despite poorly written and conceived.




I am excited to play through IV and neutopia next month, beating both SoR and Ys III this month was awesome, but putting the genny back in favour of the duo makes me happy :)

It's a 2D action RPG and those are rare. And made by Falcom. I think I'm gonna get Sorcerian for Genny just because of that. As well as Monster World IV!

I was looking around on the everdrive and dang that sorcerian game is hard to start, and the fan translation I have seems incomplete ;/ nice star field intro and music from what I've heard :)

The Switch will be a lot less depressing than buying a portable monitor.

...like, I still don't get that. Are monitors normally that difficult to move around? This product bewilders me, it seems like an $80 screen wrapped in ...thicker plastic? Maybe some rubber?

$13 is pretty good for these if you think you will like the movies. I paid a little more for most of mine.

Switch is awesome @Lunar, join the fun!

On that topic. I am thinking of picking up a couple different color joycons. Is anyone interested in just one color on one side? (sort of like pick what you want and split the cost)

PM me or @ me to let me know if you'd be willing to do $40 and what you would want. I have not thought about which ones I'd want to keep. Just that it would be cool to switch out colors.

I had one, I didn't use it much. Sold it.
Got one in a trade, play SMO for a few hours. Bored, sold it. I was more interested in their digital shmups(Psikyo titles)

I guess I'll try it again. Are we expecting a new bundle soon?

Repro saturn/sega cd cases. Yeah I'm totally for it. If I had a large saturn or segaCD collection, would be nice to replace cases with nice minty new ones. This was a good idea on limited run's part.

It's a hard shell case to transport it.

Man I picked a bad time to send my Duo R to @Lunar lol. Probably going to be skipping out on the official GOTM. I still voted for it though, definitely worthy of people to experience it. I'd just beaten it a couple years ago anyhow. If you're lucky @Lunar that Duo-R might still have my save!

I'll be getting back into the PCE/TG-16 scene eventually, but it'll be of the Super System SD variety. Believe it or not I've not actually beaten ALTTP anyway. So I might play that instead lol.

Well it's like @Lunar has been saying there's a few different places to download it if you want to play it with everyone this month.

But I get why rebuying it feels weird when you were just able to play it right before this month.
