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'm a day late but better than never. I think I gave the bosses too much credit. I ended the game with 14 lives left and that's with a bunch of dumb deaths by my own mistake. Last boss was just as easy as Level 1 boss once you figure out the pattern.

Still a better than average game overall. I give higher remarks for graphics and character design.

Final Verdict: 7.0 (out of 10)

Yo BleedingViolet, you're taking this a little too seriously dude. It's just a casual thing that we put together so we can play some games in our collection. Feel free to play both, that's totally fine. I just don't think Shining Force is a good fit for this sort of thing. Also that game is pretty difficult and VERY time consuming, which can be really off-putting to some people. How do you know people will love it? SPRG's are niche at best.

I'm big on SRPGs (beat every Disgaea, and just about every Fire Emblem and SF game) and I am one of the people saying it would be a bad choice. Mainly for the reasons you already stated.

Actually there are people that don't like platformers (which I don't get really since I love everything except most fps games but even a couple of those I love). That's why we gotta start mixing it up.

I don't think RPGs are niche at all anymore personally and Shining Force is a game with strategy too sure but it's also easy to play hard to master. I'm not sure what's hard about it but maybe compared to some easier RPGs I'm not familiar with maybe you have a point.

SRPGs are absolutely niche. Fire Emblem almost died, but Awakening adding casual features and being a huge success saved it.

@BleedingViolet is known to be passionate. smile This one was a bit close and came down to my vote, I am sorry if anyone feels like they "lost". It's not a competition at all.

I think it could have gone either way this month. I just personally wanted to play Street of Rage. Do I want to play Shining Force? Sure I do! But maybe a different time.
As a few people already pointed out, this isn't to say SoR is better nor are they even good candidates for a direct comparison as they are so different.

Let's just have fun with GotM, I encourage everyone to participate but not a big deal if you don't play/beat it during the month. Or if you wanted to play a different game/genre, that's fine too.

Like I said we can still vote for Shining Force down the line! Probably want to avoid doing something exclusive for Genesis three months in a row though.

Actually it's one of those games that I can point to and say this is why retro games are better than most modern crap. So the pedestal (to me at least) is totally justified. After saying that though Shadow Dancer better be good though πŸ˜‰

It's also one of the only RPGs I could get into as a kid. I didn't see it as difficult though. Games really were harder when we were younger. Maybe I'm too old school but fun is fun even if it's challenging or time consuming. If it were a game that you had to beat in one shot I never would have recommended it for game of the month but you can save almost whenever you like. So I still felt it was totally reasonable for game of the month.

The Ys games are an excellent choice too. Still the best version of I-II imo. IV is also quite excellent and is fan translated.

The only issue for me is I've beat all this stuff already and most of my PCE games in general so I likely wouldn't be participating.

If you were hooked in by trails I think p5 and TX ex+ will be up your alley. Get the PS4 ex+ version..it's got quite a few added things..smooth 60fps..and an extra epilogue chapter. In my top 10 rpgs ever, would be game of the year for me most years..and im fresh off finishing but I might even put it over nier.
Will have to reflect a few days before I say for sure, but the weeb inside says it's true.

Oh I'll def grab it for PS4 if I grab it. It really seems to be almost random with what ones grab me or not.

Personally I wouldn't put a single JRPG in my RPG top 10. A much younger me probably would have had like 7 or 8 JRPGs in his top ten though.

I would probably rate more of them as really generic in my older age as I would when I was younger, some of the ps2 era stuff I loved at the time I don't think would rate as high with me now, so I get what you're saying I think. This has been a great year for weebing out though with p5 and TX, makes me want to visit Japan someday more than ever.

I think at this point it's mostly that I really prefer western worlds, themes and plots more now. Like the game worlds and characters of Mass Effect and The Witcher are waaaay more interesting than like the Tales of Zestiria world. I also think that's part of why Cold Steel interested me. I could tell the game creators cared about the game world they were creating and it's a pretty expansive world with solid lore.

Damn fine price. I doubt it will hold up until eBay bucks roll in for people but if it does there is no way it lasts much longer than that.

Ya I get that. I'm pretty excited to play the trails of stuff now, though I've been wanting to have the time for awhile. The comparison to persona drew me to this game so knowing cold steel is more of it just makes me want the time that much more..and now I have to go back to work tomorrow...ugh. I'd say p5 is a pretty big step up over zestiria/berseria, and Xanadu as well..though not as much. It's pretty decidedly Japanese still though, but some of the jrpg folks at Atlus and falcom definitely seem to be stepping their game up and moving into more modern styles.

I'm going to miss anime high school life :/. but they promised another Xanadu...so perhaps one day we'll get to see another game in the series from falcom. I'm just afraid it's gonna get lost in the shuffle... The trophy numbers are very low percentages.. maybe lots of players out there just aren't finished.

I have been wanting an excuse to finally get to play turbo grafx (and also Neo Geo) classics for years. So yes I think that this is totally doable for everyone here IF people can get on board while the credit is still available to purchase.

@Lunar how come no one has posted in your Wii VC thread in forever btw? What's the cutoff date to buy credit?

Thinking more, the gameplay is probably at fault too. But I can get past menu driven random battles if I like everything else about the game (Lost Odyssey comes to mind). A big reason why I do like Ys so much is the gameplay is big time fun to me.

Trophy numbers are very low for Trails in the Sky too, brutal completion rate on Steam. I just think that's something that happens particularly with longer games that are repetitive. Not something I'd worry about too much impacting future releases. yes

I have the wireless 8bitdo controllers for NES and SNES, both are great and I've had no issues with them. They also have a newer model controller that works with the Switch, I don't own this one but I've heard it's very good as well. Any of the controllers should match up with any of the system adapters, so NES controller with an SNES adapter will work, they also have adapters for S/NES classic models.

Yes! You totally can!! I have a backwards compatible Nintendo Wii and, using my WaveBird (GameCube), regularly enjoy such titles as Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (Wii Virtual Console), Metal Slug 3 (Wii Virtual Console), and Star Fox 64 (Wii Virtual Console). yes

Yes, but it got expensive and harder to find once it was announced it worked on the Switch here a while back though. Used to be able to find them at retail or on clearance at various locations but mainly Walmart.

Hm, before I toss this on bay, let me see if anyone is interested.

So I got a RetroFreak in box with controller adapter. Only catch is the SNES/SFC pins are fudgeed up, so it won't read SNES/SFC games. Everything else should work as intended.
I'll also include a Famicom to NES adapter so it can read US NES games(only Famicom is native).

I'm thinking around $150. Let me know if anyone is interested, hit me up for trades/discussions.

This thing is better than Retron 5 in that it can take PCE/TG16 chips. Also you can rip the games onto the system HDD or Micro SD card(sold separately), so you don't have to load it every time.

I'm tellin' ya, by the time I finished it (and the last stage and the boss are a dog) I was like "Fudge Streets of Rage 2." Better tunes, and after playing it long enough I actually liked the sprites in SoR better too. They are smaller though, and the game runs at 30fps as opposed to 60 in SOR2/3.

So this is what I thought I was buying for some reason. Not a big deal, just means I have to spend another $14 to watch the OAV after the original TV series. I'll probably put Fist of the North Star on hold and switch to either Casshan, Golgo or Elfen Lied, Watamote'll be the last I watch just because I know it's good and it's actually what started the order lol

OAV studio's ...madhouse I think? Same outfit that did Kite. You can tell, too, the girls look identical. edit: not Madhouse, weird name, but the artwork's definitely a dead ringer for KITE

I keed. I wouldn't know because I know nothing about black and white samurai movies or old anime. I just know Lupin III has a cool theme song and Golgo 13 has a cool NES game.

I need to watch elfen lied.. im gonna take a short game break and watch some anime after Tokyo xanadu since im just gonna be disappointed in what comes next. I finished up to current on attack on titan (I really love that show) and maybe i'll watch elfen next. though I do want to play the last of us, ive shamefully never played it, but ive watched my brother play most of it so the priority was never really there since I know what happens. and I want to this year finally play skies of arcadia.

did I see somewhere it talking about goals for 2018?

I want to finish my wanted list for everything pre current gen, im actually ridiculously close to this other than guides.
also want to finish at least half the guides, if not all of them, that's only 3 a month. I need to go through my game lists and see what other guides I need though, that's only the ones ive found in our database here so far.

Lupin Part II is dope.

Movies are pretty timeless. The only thing that's difficult for me is how bad the audio quality is, but then I've watched subbed anime from the 80s and it's not like Japanese audio had improved by that point anyway.

I real miracle would be someone releasing the Urusei Yatsura series. I'm not interested in it, but it'd be swell for those that are. One I would like to see for myself is Kimagure Orange Road. Marmalade Boy happened, so I'm holding out some hope there.

They are finally releasing Lupin Legend of Gold Babylon not only on dvd but blu as well. Not the best Lupin movie but the previous best release was LaserDisc ...
