new Thread 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 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

Well until i saw other peoples collection I figured mine was a decent size smile I prefer NES & SNES Games, but always looking at anything Lunar is selling. Probably the fanciest thing I have are some Unopened Atari Games i got back in the day. I love RPG's and the art of the boxes if that makes sense.

Just love collecting and finally talking to people about it

I need money for Black Friday, which is why I decided to sell it. If I still have it then I'll check in with you.

Yeah I thought about hitting you up too when I saw your post but I correctly assumed you needed the money for stuff sooner which I have tied up in auction payments.

But it really is a great deal 😊 I hope you get your money in time for Black Friday.

Also, welcome Kevster, nice to have another person here.

Buy everything. Don't stop until you own every game.

Or figure out where Lunar gets all his cool games and pull then out of that void.

How much? I just bought a brand new 8gb for $23 on amazon. Can cancel or send back if I can get it at a good price.

@kevster welcome love to have ya. I also love RPGs and box art so I do know what you meant. Check out my collection page. I use gametz to track my collection because I like that they have little box art pictures, haha. It's a nice little collection tracker, and the bonus is the community here. Some times when I'm lounging at my computer I just look through my gametz collection.

I don't know if you feel like it, but if you add your collection here let me know and I'll check it out. If any of the games do not have box art the thing I love is they let the users upload a box scan. (you can easily just borrow one from amazon or google images. smile

Thinking of getting a monitor as another video source and to pair up with my new Nvidia Shield . Any pros and cons that you think I should consider? Havent bought a monitor since 2011, anything any bells and whistles I absolutely need?

Is a monitor a video source. Maybe I don't understand the question.

If you need a small HDMI monitor check displaylag.com. Monitors are much faster than TVs.

It's cool, on mobile and didn't feel like researching price. I guess I was too high, lol. I do have it and it was hardly used. Upgraded to a 32GB almost straight away.

It's a perfectly fine at market or near market used price. I'm just a "if it's close to new price, go with new".

@PlayYing I'm looking to get a new 144hz monitor, though it's not for retro games. If you are using monitor mostly for retro, then you don't need top of the line, shouldn't even be larger than 24"(perfect size IMO), and if you like pew pews and I know you do, then get one that can easily turn into portrait mode.

I never had a 4GB, I guess they came before I got a vita. I have 8, 32 and 64 cards. So the 8 isn't ever used.

My 64 is full, but I have allot of free games from PSN.

Purchased for $460 locally from a guy I've cut a ton of deals on consoles and commons over the past few years. He has a shop at the local flea market. I've done a few repairs free of charge on Sega CDs with blown pico fuses. He knew the value but we have a good relationship.

That, my friend, is a thing of beauty. love

I've always been a fan of shoot 'em ups and, for my his last birthday, bought my brother-in-law Akai Katana (Xbox 360) on the cheap at GameStop. It's an awesome little shooter that's, in my opinion, totally undervalued. Well, this guy's a big gamer; but, it's all first-person shooters, Kratos-esque brawlers, and all that other type of current and new stuff. So, he popped this sucker in and it blew. his. freakin'. mind! I'm still not sure exactly what he thinks about it...but, I'm fairly certain it gives him epileptic seizures. winking raspberry

Can you save games on your internal vita memory? If so how.

Nice. I updated robot tank for 2600 with a box shot just to show you how quick it is. I did that for games in my collection missing box pics so now when I look at my collection every game has a box pic with it. smile

It's obvious my saves are on my memory card so how do I go about changing this?

Yeaaah buddy. Akai Katana is good stuff. I know it had been in the $10 or less range, totally worth it.

Yeah I have the OLED, I wouldn't want to give it up for internal storage because of those colors. Playing Mary Skelter and those colors really pop. love it! In any case it's working now and I'll just order an 8gb if it fails again.

That's a good $500 + off market though. Nice deal!

It's not even close to the end of the month! You can't give up, I still haven't started but I can't imagine it would take more than a couple days of sporadic playing for me to finish.

Nobody said you had to 100% it sir 😉 Just play it when you have time. Usually with Mega Man games once you beat whichever first boss you can its like an avalanche and the game practically finishes itself lol.

I just wanted to give a shoutout to @creagan and thank him for the games I got from his auction! They are in immaculate condition 😍

I will NOT be posting pics but I don't need to, if you've ever bought anything from him you know what I'm talking about and if you haven't clearly you should 😊

Unlikely as:

1. I'm a hoarder
2. It's much easier to store flyers and brochures
3. I like these too much

I was recently cleaning out some old boxes of receipts that I no longer need. I found a couple receipts from games, I thought it was pretty cool to find them. Also found a candy wrapper for Super Mario Bro 3 lol.

Anyone interested in a 60gb BWC PS3? It works but its super loud and sometimes it overheats and resulting in a automatic system shut down. Im fairly certain a fresh coat of thermal paste will return the system to its former glory. Alas, I am lazy and have no disposable time and space to mess around with such endeavor.

Comes with power cord, DS3 controller with charging cable, and 3 unremarkable games(one for each generation so you can test).

Asking $50 plus shipping.

I just found an unopened MadCatz XBox controller extension cable. It is 7ft long and includes a cable keeper spool.

No idea on price...how about $7 shipped (I think I have a padded envelope big enough)...a buck a foot. :)
