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

Okay, just ordered the Crash Bandicoot trilogy. I was more into Spyro back then, but these always looked fun.

The Spyro remake looks solid, kind of annoying that only the first game will be on the disc though.

I want to play the PS1 version. I might have it on PS3, I haven't checked yet. Otherwise I want a black label copy and don't want to pay $40 on Ebay so I'm still hunting.

Pretty happy with it, felt like a solid price for that many games. Also I don't need the Zelda games (have nice minty CIB copies already) so those are functionally a rebate.

Really? Ugh... I guess that's how it's going to be for the Switch too. frown This big-publishers-being-cheapskates era we live in is getting on the few good nerves I have left. Better make sure we've got enough room on the ol' SD card...

So this month's Game of the Month is PlayStation Crash Bandicoot.

To earn the icon, please snap a pic of your "The End" screen and post it in RTT.

Easiest way is to take a pic with your cellphone, and then upload it to imgur.

This wasn't required before, but will be going forward.

It's not that difficult to do and it really shows off your accomplishment I think!

If you are playing on any of the modern consoles, just take a screenshot.

Streaming is nice, and we will support you by watching you but that's a little too much if you aren't already set up.

Those were both two of the absolute best deals I've seen on the site in a very long while though.

You got hooked up at an amazing price! 😊

DQXI is about to come out and I'm definitely tempted. But I am waiting for TGS to see if they have some in game footage of the switch version. I remember square enix said they'd have "something on DQXI switch" so.

Considering we didn't even get DQ Heroes I & II Nintendo Switch in English, I'm not holding my breath.

On an unrelated note, I'd appreciate it if you'd stop trolling me about Iwata. Save the stupid stuff for General.

jesus dude, I don't literally think that guy masterbates to Iwata. Not even an attempted troll. Get the stick out of your fudging panties and loosen up.

A lot of them are my old games that I sold to Lunar in the past. LOL.

I don't know about amazing but it's definitely really solid. I'm not complaining that's for sure.

I am very hopeful. DQXI hype is reaching maximum velocity and I think it's going to be huge. They will want to get it out in English on Switch I think. Which is definitely my preferred platform for buying it.

@ErickRPG, sailorneorune is a lady who has tremendous respect for Iwata-san, let's just say that's improper way to talk to a lady.

Men and woman are equal and nobody deserves to be coddled, myself included. I don't deserve to be accused as a troll when I did no such thing. So we can both drop it and get over wherever the hell this came from in the first place. I respect Iwata too, I think he was amazing. But I'm not going to say sorry for a joke that someone got triggered by when I wasn't even targeting him or her.

Also, if you're having trouble with image sharing, if you're in the RTT Discord, adding images for verification's super easy. Click the plus button, click the image you want to share, then ping Lunar. Done. If he doesn't give you your sticker, you have my permission to publicly mock him.

For like a day, I bought it for that price. Got two extra levels too. But it's for PS4 so obviously not as good as Switch. No-bathroom-taking-a-crap-Crash-Bandicoot sessions.

@Gypsy Serving people we care about is one of the most satisfying things we can do. It's kind of hard to explain, but it's just a great feeling to be able to help someone who's having a hard time, even if it's just with something that appears small (a smile or an opportunity to destress, for example). We and the GOTM will be here when you have the time.

That would be fun, I always prefer getting really into a game as opposed
to just doing the bare minimum whilst still passing it.

No I am extremely excited to play the ps4 version of DQ XI today, but I also worked on Destiny 2: Forsaken for a long time, and happy to see my stuff shipped with it. The Polymega is a friend of mine who has also been working on that since it started a very long time ago, and he used to work at insomiac. The insomniac Spiderman game comes out today [comes out friday, so a little less crazy stars aligning than I thought] and a lot of my former coworkers from a previous company worked on that game too - so in my friend community there is a lot of excitement + DQXI for my own personal playtime excitement. I've been playing Dragonquest Builders because of young kids and family visiting recently and everyone wanted to watch a game and I wanted to get my excitement for the new release satiated somehow.

I made it a bit further in popful, and got a code for Crash from my work to download it on my ps4, but with DQXI and my previous experience of not enjoying crash I will probably not be joining if I finish popful.

For Destiny 2 I worked on the Strike Pyramidian background and boss introduction effects. I also worked on the glowing water on I.O., and various other environemntal/gameplay related animations and effects. I am not sure what I can talk about with Forsaken, but I worked on what a lot of people are streaming which is pretty cool to watch :)

Sounds like the polymega launch is rough and their site is down, but honestly DQXI has me so amped.. I can't wait to try that out on that for a while

Cool, if we see the Nintendo Wii version in good shape 'round here, we'll pick it up. yes Some of the "silly kids' games" we tried turned out to be surprisingly fun.

Ben 10 Alien Force: Vilgax Attacks was one of my favorite 360 games. Im still sad it wasn't brought over to the PS3 to give me an excuse to play it again.

That thing had a video resolution of 864x224 (three 288x224 screens) and the Switch's screen resolution is 1280x720, so it would be theoretically possible to do that, but judging from that video, it isn't really necessary due to the sprite sizes.

The arcade image has been blown up to 2x size (sourced from System 16), and the overlay is a cap of the video. The original arcade was more focused on enemies coming from the side, but the SNES version and this one had a LOT of fighting on the air.

No, Policenauts is 25 GBP. The OutRun album only had one print run. I wibble wobbled on it because it was like 20 GBP and now it's "worth" $100 because RAAAAERE.

I don't really buy movies on VHS, I tend to stick to home-recorded stuff in case I find something cool, but I do like to buy stupid videos or weird bad movies. Serious VHS collecting is way way outta my league.

That's embarrassing for MS. JC.

How much of it have you played? There is one spot that was really frustrating fairly deep into the game. So I was starting to think: good lord, is this me, do I just suck at games now? I felt compelled to search out info on it and everyone else online said the aim detection for that segment was crap and you have to just aim in the general area and pray. dead face

@Gypsy not enough of K&L to get that far maybe we didn't finish it. It's just so bad. One of the YouTubers I watch that shows the games with good and ps plus games each month was trying to diplomatically say it was a dumpster fire lol.


@WithinTemptation it's like no matter where the character is or is facing..pushing up makes them go forward, etc. It's def not for me.

I can't play with non inverted sticks either. My brother is opposite he can't play with inverted..but it makes sense to me...it you pull back the camera goes up and vice versa..like imagine a stick on your head.

I wonder where I got converted to inverted. No idea. If you cant change RE2 to inverted I couldnt play it. But apparently back then I hadnt been converted over. It wasnt like I changed it on purpose. Very odd.

RE1/2/3/CV all have tank controls. RE4 and forward have regular direction controls you have come to expect 3D games to have.

@tonymack21 is referring to the inverted controls for First Person Shooters, anything before Halo had inverted controls (up is down, and down is up) as a default, some games (like Turok) cannot be changed.

Halo converted me.

I was playing inverted just fine, was gonna become a helicopter pilot and everything.

Then one day in college, we played Halo in the lounge. That was the end of my career as a possible Black Hawk pilot.

lol.. sadness.

I can see why it makes sense to either side. if you put a stick on top of your head or on a camera, and you pull it back, it will look up, and vice versa, and for some they associate it as directly moving the screen. my brother is a non inverter, but still plays flight games with normal flight control. for me inversion makes more sense, I guess I was so used to it even when halo came out I still changed it. facebook people will argue vehemently about this, saying if you don't invert your x axis it makes no sense why you invert your y, like the way you play hurts someone else in some way.. but I don't invert the x lol.

Well what about Lollipop Chainsaw on PS3 or 360? That game is a pretty fun beat em up!
It's also funny, light hearted and yet still totally sick and twisted. Also Mike Tysons Punch out!!!
Is pretty good and fun. Diddy Kong Racing? Idk I usually try not to play good games when
I'm too down. Then I'll start associating that problem with that game.

Sorry to hear about your Uniracers save getting lost. That's messed up.

Toy Story 3 is pretty fun too believe it or not.

Oh I know GTA San Andreas! Take over some hoods from rival gangs and just unleash
Mayhem all over Los Santos and you'll be right as rain! 😃

Kane and Lynch is fine. My friend stopped playing it with me 85% of the way through and I co-oped the last two levels by myself with both controllers. It's not a masterpiece but I think it gets way too much hate because of the Gamespot thing. The second game is OK too, and it's only like 3 hours long so it doesn't overstay its welcome like literally every game these days does.

I legit think it is one of the worst games from the last gen if you of course discount stuff that was produced as shovelware from the start.

I was weirdly into co-op third person shooters from like Ghost Recon 2 up through Resident Evil 5 and I played like every single one with my college roommates. My taste in that time period is impeccable.

It's made by the same guy who made the Nintendo and Genesis Ever drive line. If you buy directly from the guy it's about the same price plus shippinging from East Europe.

Just FYI every Friday they have a discount on a different ever drive. (Waiting on a mvs/AES sale)

So then I wait another 30 minutes and I'm about to leave before I get a call. I ask if they will come down on the price and the guy says he'd rather throw it out. I wait a bit and text that seeing how there is no way they fully tested it plus the wait and no way I could test it so I reoffered 60 percent or I'm leaving and I got a really fun and nasty reply.

Lol. Yeah pretty much. If I had brought stuff to test it, then it might be a different story but I was expecting it to be in perfect working order and I definitely wasn't taking their word for it. Them not taking the offer probably saved me from myself a bit.

They sounded like a major butt-hole on the phone so there is that. I was due for this crap though, my previous combo of great experiences in a row was bound for a breaker. At least I picked up some crap from some stores since I was already in town.

When Crash came out, a young Lunar thought the game was called Naughty Dog. Because what's a bandicoot?

UC4 had me hooked pretty early. Usually I give a game 3 hours max, usually less and if I'm not feeling it I'm out.

I made an exception for Crash to maintain my gotm combo.

I only recently played TLoU for the first time on the ps4 remaster which included the left behind content of what happened to ellie before the game and during that one chapter of the game. I had seen my brother playing it some and thought eh I will play that someday but what I saw didn't have me dying to play, but I ended up enjoying it quite a bit. naughty dog mostly does good stuff (well, lately, their past transgressions aside, but 5th gen has largely aged like moldy ass so i'll give them a bit of a pass there) so im sure TLoU 2 is going to be pretty solid.

I have every "intention" of making a run at crash.. how many hours @Gypsy ? with back to school and my new work schedule my gaming time has taken a really serious hit, im losing huge chunks of game time. tens of hours.

the ps4 is set to have a pretty good swan song period, if we are entering the final 2-ish years they are looking really good.

@tonymack21 Crash is pretty easily doable in 5-6 hours. It's possible to do sub three if you are really good at games. I got sloppy and tried to rush some things which cost me a bit.

I would say even back then Crash was bad. It's a two button linear platformer. The Banjo games, SM64, CBFD and other good platformers from the era blow it away and only emphasize how bad it is imo.

On one hand, don't devalue your IP so much that you become Sega where Genesis games are literally free with ads on mobile. On the other hand, it's SNK and these games have been in a dozen compilations before. I generally don't care about compilations anymore but when some real comprehensive compilation comes out like Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection or the NES Classic I'm still onboard.

So in a compilation that would be 100% split up into "volumes", have a $10 Switch tax added to each, and then still not end up being comprehensive. Got it.

Nothing, I just haven't heard anything about it lately. Looking it up now I see it's a year away from release, so I guess that's why. I thought it came out to no fanfare.

Lol I gotcha. I'm still hopeful however. The gaming industry seems to get tunnel
vision when it comes to game design sometimes. They only try to create what is proven to sell recently. When certain companies don't adhere to that and fail it is sad but I like seeing lots of different options. Most classic 2600 games played so different from most classic Nes games but they both had a ton of great games.

Now most companies just cut and paste whatever works. Almost no originality anymore.

Part of me really wants that bundle... but at the same time. I got YL on PS4, and traded it away without ever finishing it. I'm now more in the mood to give it a second chance... but I already own it on Steam. raspberry

I always wanted a piece of plastic with the name of a mediocre half-assed game emblazoned on it to remind me of all the good times the old games gave me and this one didn't. What a swell fudging package that is

Preorder a real Colecovision clone console for just $300. Neat project at half the price. The benefit of this is that these beta units will be shipped even if the final product never gets funded.

I'm putting a dot dot dot on this until people get hands-on. And honestly, I can say fairly easily I could find enough reasons to throw $300 at a SNES FPGA, but Colecovision... eh...

Looks like it's aiming for $200 MSRP. That seems more sane, I'd wait for crowdfunding. If this is legit, I think it'll do well in that phase. Hard to say, too many people have been burned by the butt-holes who bought a bunch of Jag shells and threw a SNES inside in an attempt to get full funding. BOTH of their scams. Hilariously they decided to chose SNES as the controller port standard, too, though these guys don't immediately seem related.

The Colecovision homebrew and hardware community is legit because the only people who care about Colecovision are old vintage computer nerds. But really Collecovision to Colecovision is like RetroUSB to NES, if not moreso. They've made CV hardware for a decade.

Anyone know where I can get my hands on an Atari Jaguar controller with a rotary spinner installed? Would much appreciate any assistance.

(On a related note, also looking for Tempest for Nuon).
