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 brand:::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

Cuphead is literally the definition of "Retro", something that is new but has the aesthetics of the old.

Ugh that video was sooo annoying though. Not really funny at all.

The game in the flower world looked pretty cool ..... But that guy wouldn't stop pretending he was hilarious for even ten seconds for me to enjoy it. Now idk if I even want this game because it will always remind me of this miserable person trying to make everyone else miserable.

I saw a Sega CD Model 2 w/Jurassic Park at goodwill today it was marked $99, but half price today so $50. That still seems high to me, but I don't follow that system. Is that a good price?

They also had a DS with 4 decent games for $75, a gamegear for $50, another portable system in a case for $50.

To be perfectly clear, I like some of those games quite a bit, my complaint was that they're all a similar style of game, long open world games with sidequests etc (except Uncharted, that's my bad).

I like pretty much all of AVGN videos. The worst that comes of it is that people start repeating what he says like it's actual fact when he reviews good stuff like MC Kids, Friday the 13th, or brand:::Sega CD. He just plays a character who hates everything and gets too-annoyed by minor BS.

I know he's playing a character. I just cannot sit through a video listening to that character. It reminds me of beating people in Mortal Kombat and having them rage quit and send me a bunch of curse laden voicemails. Telling me how gay I am or some racial slurs etc etc. This is how lots of douchebags act now. The things people say on the Internet would lead to broken faces in the real. I just don't know why this type of nonsense is so normal now. I've gotten into it with a lot of these people and it's not fun since it ruins what should be fun as well, however there is nothing that can be done about it. Other than (at least for me) never watching this guys videos again.

I don't even honestly think the game sucked but he ruined it for me. If that was the point then ..... What is the point in that?

Ya I realize that's what you meant, those tend to be my favorites, huge sprawling rpgs with very rich characters, worlds and stories, so those were the first ones I named

Gamegear, maybe. Depends on if the caps are good. Sega cd for 50 bucks is good though, if it works.

IF.

Depends on your intentions. If you are looking to flip I would not bother. If you want the system to have it, that's a pretty good price (at $50).

I never use strategy guides how they are supposed to be used anyways but have you talked to @SirConnery about some of those items? I think he likes older gaming promotional flyers and things like that.

I was about to say SirConnery would probably want to see those books and brochures. I have an old NES book that I keep thinking I need to get out and get pics of.

ya judgement free for sure, we all love our game women, no reason to deny it lol.

sadly none of those guides are needs for me but perhaps someone will

Was he the younger mullet haired dude with the shirt that had the phonetic spelling of the game? I remember him from some ads but I'm not sure if that's the same guy.

I wanted to play X-Men Origins Wolverine, but I didn't want the resolution and framerate to suck like it does on the 360.

I beat the first form of the final boss in NG3. It was beautiful. It was the last life of my last credit smiley:::wry smile And this game doesn't refill your life bar for each stage of the final boss gauntlet.

Banjo Kazooie is one of my favorite games. Those first 5-6 levels I've played many times, but never beat it. But I am on the 2nd to last stage, Rusty Bucket bay. And have died a few times. And the thing that kills it for me is you lose all Note progress each time you die. So I have to run around the entire stage again. Perhaps that's why I never beat it haha. And I look at videos of the final stage and it seems to be a ton of very hard platforms high up in the air. It looks more frustrating than fun.

Eh, not a fan of the answers for the quiz being random (in terms of being randomly generated upon new game start). I came here to platform not to write down answers. Did really enjoy the rest of the game though.

Maybe an hour. The timer is hard in NG3. I died multiple times due to time outs and still can't beat Act 7 without taking an intentional death due to time. You can't really take your time, you have to learn running paths. Although watching you play NG1 I think you already do that.

Damn, DefaultGen! She's in gorgeous condition. But, I'm gonna be honest and admit that I've never heard of that video game. I'm assuming it's a hose racing simulator of some sort.

You're correct, it's a horse racing simulator. Guess on whether it's pricey because it's an awesome horse racing simulator or just because it's just rare smiley:::raspberry Actually I loved Derby Owner's Club in arcades ( brand:::Sega brand:::Sega brand:::Sega ), so I'm semi-excited to play it. We sure don't get many horse games here besides the little girl stuff.

laughing out loud I guess I was being a little generous there, wasn't I? Believe it or not, I actually own at least two horse racing simulators myself: Jockey Grand Prix (Neo Geo MVS (arcade)) and Stakes Winner (Neo Geo MVS (arcade)). They're both fun enough, as far as horse racing simulators go. Now, are you going for a complete brand:::Sega Saturn set or did this most recent purchase just scratch an itch that'd been buggin' you for awhile? smiley:::smile

It's a rare game on the SEGA Saturn, so clearly it's worth top dollar. Never mind the fact that it's rare because nobody really wanted to buy a game about horse racing.

I haven't played either of those, but would probably love them. I'm not some huge horse fan, but I love gambling so the genre is really appealing to me. And yeah I'm trying to get a US brand:::Sega Saturn set. I'm blowing money on obscure stuff because I think most of it is only going to get pricier and harder to find over time. I'll probably get the bug and get brand:::3DO crazy at some point because I'm worried about never seeing some nonsense like Robinson's Requiem again at a reasonable price. I feel like SNES and Genesis games will always be there for me if I ever decide I want them.

Ninja Gaiden 2 is ughh.....slightly worse than 1. I'd call it about the same level as CV1. I like the music and graphics, but gameplay wise, they chose some rather annoying mechanics(weather).

Spinslash is gone but certain ninpo is almost better in this game.

That guy has been trying to sell that turbo duo for awhile now, and i think it's actually gone UP in price by a few hundred dollars. I'm not even sure how you can justify that price, unless he really thinks Duo- 1k, and the Soldier Blade = 500

I think the $180 doesn't include this mediocre controller though right?

I traded a bunch of crappy DS Pokemon games to GS for this Shield TV, so far it performs great.

I am using it for emulation as well as Kodi box.

A loose Soldier Blade in a print out case probably isn't $500 smiley:::smile

The wind and water currents were definitely more annoying than fun. I'm not sure why there was so much of that. Who wants to be pushed around and fight the game just to walk left and right?

You would love Castlevania The Adventure. It's like Castlevania but at half speed with much harder platforming.
