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 . 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.

Shouldn't be that long. However long it takes you to get full control of your character and access to the city. There is one in the Nakamichi St arcade. I don't know exactly how long it takes but I've played 3 full Yakuza games since I played 0.

I'm just going to assume it's not your style of fighter. MK9 has ridiculously intricate footsies. Playing high level in it is nowhere near as easy as you think it is. Same with MKX. But I much prefer the style of MK9 over the style of MKX.
Even tag team tech in MK9 is a seriously difficult thing to try and master.
@BleedingViolet What's the issue? My last exchange was in 2014 so it's been awhile but I remember it being very easy. Just contacted them, they got a duplicate order out and did next day shipping on them and I got a label to return the busted item.

I'm not 100 percent sure actually. We talk on a message board so it's not like we're friends On Facebook or someplace I can contact her directly. I think she's just having trouble with an Order she made and couldn't find an email. This was her original post. I told her I'd ask here.
Alright, where my gaming buddies at? Any of you order games from Newegg? What is up with their customer service, the phone number does not work, I have been in the chat que for 2 days, I am down to 872 in que. And I can not find an email. What hell have I stepped into?
That was probably the worst part, I knew I had done everything by the book but when it takes that long I'm like "Well crap. Did they find something anyways, am I hosed, did I pay $500 for a $440 card?" (which is coincidentally down to 350 on a good sale now, but I justify it with all the awesome gaming I did between then and now)
I would argue besides not playing semi-popular games like Super Mario RPG, Yoshi's Island, Mario Kart/F-Zero and (arguably less popular) Rockman X2/X3, for the price, it plays juuuust about everything else and is worth picking up. The list of games it can't hit up is relatively small, and the prices to fill in those holes, Rockman X2/X3 aside, is actually fairly low. And you know you're actually going to play through it if you buy it after picking one of these up.
Lol, it doesn't really matter, if you play right you should only shift once I was legit impressed by your shifting when watching the stream. You would hit the grass, slow down, shift into low gear for like a second, then immediately shift back up. It was like "Wow, he's out of control, but still has time to shift properly! That's amazing!"
Thanks to tonight's ongoing rain, I've decided to sell off virtually all my retro gaming items. This includes my modest Genesis, Sega CD, Dreamcast, PS1 and PS2 collection.
There are currently three leaks in my roof, I've done all I could to move things out of the way but I already lost more items (PC games) and there's still eight hours of rain to go at least.
Edit: Okay, rain seems to have passed. While moving stuff so it wouldn't get wet I found a NES dogbone, some random NES pads, a Saturn multitap, two Beatmania US controllers (but they're caked with dirt, so they may not be worth buying?) and I believe I had several Dreamcast lightguns, both original and third party. I recall having a first party Sega Saturn S-Video cable with box around.
I also recall having multiple DC lightguns...
In the end I had to deal with eight leaks. :( Gonna have to toss way more than I wanted.

Damn...that sucks. So you went from thinking you had 3 leaks to finding 8? Are these just from water permeating the plywood so much and dripping through? Seems like the under layer that the shingles are nailed into have a problem at that rate.
So I was reading a very long post about why some guy thinks WOTC doesn't shoot for the pay their pros angle. I won't c/p all of it but I thought this particular bit was damn good, and relevant to this thread.
But the changes to Magic didn't stop there. Here it will help to understand how Brian Goldner became CEO of Hasbro, and how he thinks about Magic--how he thinks about all of the company's top brands. Goldner joined Hasbro in 2000 after working for Haim Saban, the man behind the Power Rangers franchise, and he rose to power by applying Saban's brand strategy to the Transformers line of toys, transforming it, so to speak, into a massive movie-centric franchise that's still going strong. (Bumblebee is due out in theaters soon.) Since becoming CEO, Goldner has taken the same approach to a number of Hasbro brands, making movies out of G.I. Joe, Ouija, Battleship, and My Little Pony, and attempting to make films out of Monopoly and Magic. In this way, Goldner has spent the past ten years moving Hasbro away from being a company that acquires licenses to make toys for other brands (such as Star Wars), and more toward becoming an entertainment company that promotes its own brands through movies, TV shows, and other media. (The company recently tried to purchase DreamWorks Animation.)
The way Goldner sees it, consumers aren't looking to buy toys or Magic cards or physical products per se, but rather emotionally resonant experiences. By this logic, Transformers fans (for example) are looking for all kinds of opportunities to express their love of Transformers, from buying toys and watching movies to putting Autobot emblems on their cars and getting Decepticon tattoos. Or even doing random things like buying bags of shortbread cookies adorned with illustrations of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.
The trick is to give fans limitless opportunities to express their identity as fans, and thereby experience the joy their fandom brings them. In that way, they bond emotionally with the brand, coming to regard it as an essential part of their life.
