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

30 seems to beat eBay pretty good? Honestly it's weak. I couldn't recommend it over any other rpg I've played this year. For an anime high school game it's light years behind persona 5 and Tokyo Xanadu. It's more like anime middle school. It's not even so awful it's just plain. The 4 dungeon enviros are exactly the same from start to last. Some of the Xanadu dungeons are pallette swaps but at least they swapped them and layed our slightly different.

If you've played...

The Witcher
Horizon
P5
Tokyo Xanadu
Zestiria/Berseria
Nier Automata
FF15

And most of the other good rpgs on PS4 and need one to play. Perhaps. Dissing it while putting on available is counter productive lol but it's just so far behind these games. For collection purpose I'll probably pick up a digital or something one day down the road super cheap or on steam.

I've got the Snatcher soundtrack on vinyl. Frankly though I'm a bit scared about international travel for it lol, but if you're determined I could probably make that happen if it's something you're interested in.

So apparently the Vita version of Exist Archive freezes frequently.

For an $85 retail set the outer box on Lodoss War is pretty damn flimsy.

It's also... half the price of the Japanese set? So I guess it's fine, lol. I had my own complaints on it but honestly if that's the only way it was hitting US shores, I'm cool

I traded for one recently and subsequently sold it on ebay for $90. I'm sure I'll play it one day. Same goes for Rule of Rose.

Well the TV is a warranty replacement so only a week old or so. But I have kept stickers on for quite a long time in the past haha. I use a Denon x4000 because of the XT32, it sounds amazing.

That's one of those rare ps2 games I've always wanted and never even got to try. I can't remember which $&@8)(#! From which videogame magazine gave it an extremely unflattering review but since then I've seen and heard about how cool and different it was and now it's really hard to find and/or super expensive.

Very uncool. Just one of the reasons I won't trust most guys reviews of games in the media. On the other hand Francesca Reyes from Dreamcast Magazine always had reviews that I liked so I took a chance on Typing of the Dead for DC and was unbelievably happy with that one. Also she reviewed many other cool games that I liked, but that was the one I never would have played without her words 😊

Needless to say I will instinctively trust a female recommendation almost every time ..... Except that girl at gamedude who told me that Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D sucks. While I was buying the psp umd of it and was going to see the movie in 3D anyways. I literally felt like she was just trolling me in the real.

Anyways back on topic @Wheels617 I still want that game too but I'm not sure it's worth as much as it goes for since I never got to play it. My holy grail games I never got to play but would still maybe spend stupid amounts of future money on physical copies would be:

Jurassic Park Operation Genesis (Xbox)
Shining Force 3 (Saturn. The main reason I ever traded my original great condition 3do for a Saturn d'oh! Was for this game which was expensive even then!)
Harvest Moon (Snes)

There's others but most of them are jaguar games. I may get around to getting Haunting Ground one day though. But for 100 right now probably not yet.

I have a SCART switch that I connect to OSSC, and all systems go through the switch. The OSSC also can take VGA and component(no sound tho, so you have to come up with another way)

I have a scart switch also that only has 3 switches. I have SNES, gen/cd via RGB. And then dreamcast through the VGA. So I only have 3 systems through OSSC right now. You can obviously do more if you have room or a scart switch.

Oh yeah I still gotta get more people to vote I've been talking to people one of which is totally ignoring me.

I was hoping to get at least 20 different people to vote (and hopefully participate this time as well)
But even with the two very available games people don't want to commit that kinda time. Maybe it's the craziness of the holidays but I guess I need to try a little harder.

I know it is but I also know we can do better. The votes matter more if people actually play the games of course, but I would love to see as many people enjoying our comfy peaceful thread and playing new retro games as possible.

Plus the deals people give each other in this thread cannot be overlooked. Some of the best most beloved and priciest classics get traded here regularly with great discounts.

Most sensible people stay the fudge away from retro if they value their life savings or have crap jobs. I'm happy to see 20 people site wide participating in the Monthly Game Club honestly

Everything we've played is on VC/Nintendo classic systems or Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (except MIMP lol). I also hear there are some websites where you can download these games for free, but you didn't hear it from me.

Oh I've heard about stuff like that too.

Websites that have many retro games for just like free and stuff. They must get lots of money from advertisers to afford to be that generous 😉

I know retro collecting isn't cheap but it still seems cheaper to me than all the new systems coming out. I kinda want an Xbox S now that the prices are great and apparently original Xbox one adapters go bad faster than mayonnaise in the sun ..... Or that purple new 3ds or a Wii U or a Switch or a ps4 JUST to play virtual reality games which is around what 800 dollars? Just to play vr on ps4?

Retro and retrons and snes classics seems pretty reasonable in my weird mind. Plus then there's the Neo Geo home system which as expensive as it is always seemed really cool to me.

Wow I guess if it is 9-10 there really is a shot to have it be shining force.

But did you already vote @Noid?

No netlink manual, so it's basically disc only. The Daytona CCE case is identical to the CCE Netlink case. Way less sexy if you can't show off that manual raspberry

Initially, I cast my vote for Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Super Nintendo). Then, to better conform to the available options, I changed my vote to Shining Soul (Game Boy Advance). But, again, for what it's worth, my last and final vote officially goes to Shining Force (Genesis). yes

The thing about streets of rage is that while it has a lot more votes than it should most of the people voting don't have the time to play Shining Force. And as @creagan pointed out its not easy like a typical rpg where you can just grind until you can defeat higher level enemies. You literally will lose every battle if you charge the enemy without setting up a strong front line with decent support.

I shouldn't have called Streets of Rage mediocre but it's hard to get too involved in a game that's so shallow. I wish there was more to it but it's not like sega was trying to reinvent the wheel with it they were just trying to make a beat em up with nicer graphics than normal. It's not terrible and yes it is one of the only decent beat em ups that I can think of on the system but it is only okay. It's also been years since I've played Shining Force or Streets of Rage so maybe Shining Force won't be as good as I remember either.

Yes there is, you just kill all but one on the map then egress, fire emblem is the one where you can't grind.

Grinding isn't an issue in Shining Force, it's just a dumb fudging mechanic that needlessly draws out the game length. I love it, but jeez.

As someone who beat Shining Force III this year I'd put the o/u on people finishing Shining Force if it gets voted at 1 and a half.

Either way, I need a proper Genesis candidate to give me a reason to hack up my SNESC to test out this wireless controller incoming today, so I'm down, but I'll be less happy about Shining Force for sure. I really want to challenge people's preconceptions about SoR2, as after finishing both I find SoR to be the one with superior feel, enjoyment and music. Once you figure out how to cheap out the bosses.

Dad got a cheapy one from Mom for Christmas for his system, if this one works out I'll probably buy him one of these, too, but I'll get him the SNES one. Hoping the controller works out well! Sounds like the Hori wireless one was crap.

I have this exact controller and like it quite a bit.

I'm sure it'll be solid, haven't gotten my hands on an 8bitdo controller that I didn't like to some extent. The NES-style double stick one's a close no, but it still functions fine, most of my complaints on that are just aesthetic ones. This looks solid.

Huh, I never thought of that. But I did used to play the same battles over and over again when I was younger. It was my first real RPG that I really loved besides Dragon Warrior. So maybe I did that at some point but I don't remember doing that. I did used to focus on finishing enemies with my paladin though so I could make sure he would be strong enough to not get killed since he had more movement points.

Also I still have yet to even try any Fire Emblem games, is the battle strategy similar to Shinig Force?

Kinda but no egress. You fight the fight and take what you get and hope nobody dies because there's no resurrection in FE.

I love grinding too depending on the RPG I'm playing, or even simulation type game.

Grinding technically happens on different levels in different ways with almost all games though. For instance Mortal Kombat 9 was the first fighting game I really got to a high skill level in but that fighting engine is really deep despite all the people playing Street Fighter that think it isn't. They just don't get the depth of it initially since there's way more going on than meets the eye.

Hell, even this year it took replaying Castlevania to come back and replay Ninja Gaiden with more skill and understanding of how to avoid damage to make the most of boss battles that I couldn't avoid taking damage against.

Ouch! But that does sound like my kinda difficulty 😊 Maybe I need to check it out this coming up year. Should I focus on a cheaper version to start or is there a pretty good one that shouldn't be passed up?

Oh hell no! Was that a Russian dwarf hamster? I feel terrible even admitting this but I used to get pinky mice for my rattlesnake (she's gone now and that's also sad 😞) and I used to go to this pet store that I call the Chinese pet store since the two older people never knew what I was saying lol. But they had no small mice that day and I bought this cute but diseased looking hamster and she ate her up 😞

I know all animals need to eat but subjecting mice and other rodents to that kind of death is something that makes me feel pretty awful.

There's a whole month to play either game, the only problem with beating Streets of Rage is you can't really (that I'm aware of anyways) save it but you can save in Shining Force.

Plus Jogurt! 😍

I'm still thinking about a dual game of the month this month so people can play whichever they prefer and still be Playing together maybe @Lunar??? Plus it'll give some of us a chance to replay both. I'm still getting a copy of streets of rage (just haven't gotten it yet) either way though. So I can actually play both this month.
