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

This thing would suck at bitcoin mining. One video card, FX 8350? I'd get laughed out of whatever mining outfit I applied for.

Also, my framerate for PUBG's almost a steady 50-55FPS now at 1080p! What a piece of crap unoptimized fudge pile of a game. Only had time to try that out for lunch, though I did blow quarter of an hour on a LoL highlight video and some Snickers so that didn't help.

@PlayYing (looks at price) no, I couldn't have

1080 for 100's a justifiable upgrade, with 11XX around the corner there's likely to be much better performance compared to 1080Ti for substantially less of a mark-up

On the plus side, the textures can't possibly get any worse. Which is why it's performance cracks me up.

Man I am out of touch with the pc graphics world these days. I wasn't aware the 1070 and 1080 commanded so much $$$$ still, not since the 8800gtx have I seen one series stay in the lead for so long. I think I paid $435 for my 1070 like 2 years ago. I can remember having to brickseek that thing like it was made by Nintendo.

Purely because Bitcoin miners are starving the market. 1070 was best bang for buck, it exited the market almost immediately and permanently. 1080's a bit of a premium and 1080Ti's just right out.

Yeah I have an upcoming rebuild of my computer hopefully next month really would like to get rid of my 10 year old or so monitor and hand me down parts, which i dont mind but last upgrade I did was get a slightly better graphics card to play fallout 4

The PS 3 runs like a dream, redone thermal paste and all, got access to my suikoden downloads. It is quieter than my ps4.

Hope everyone is doing well smile and warm

Help out a foolish old fool. What exactly is "Bitcoin mining" and how...how does it work? Don't get me wrong; I have neither the resources nor the understanding to embark on such an endeavor. I'm just curious as to what exactly it is.

Soon as I saw that the only legal way to actually draw on your Bitcoin finances was to essentially take a plane trip to Switzerland, withdraw, convert to euro, fly back to the states, convert to USD and declare for tax reasons, I decided Bitcoin and I were fine in separate corners.

The ATMs tax the fuuuuuuck outta you, ASSUMING they don't just empty your wallet and say "Fudge you, have a nice day". And if they do, well, you're fudgeed.

Alright, here's a frank and honest video game-related question for the RTT peanut gallery. When piqued to play a classic Capcom title that received both an original release on the Super Nintendo / Super Famicom and a re-release on the Game Boy Advance, which do you instinctively gravitate toward? Three examples come to mind:
positive Mickey to Donald: Magical Adventure 3 (Super Famicom) VS Disney's Magical Quest 3: Starring Mickey & Donald
positive Rockman & Forte (Super Famicom) VS Mega Man & Bass (Game Boy Advance)
positive Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Super Nintendo) VS Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Game Boy Advance)

That's totally cool and I'd be hard pressed to disagree. But, why side with the Super Nintendo / Super Famicom release over the Game Boy Advance re-release? Is it purely nostalgia? Is there a graphical superiority to the original? Does it actually play better than the "beefed up" port? Again, I'm just curious. smile

Game Boy Advance simply because I gravitate toward handhelds. However there are games that are just too downgraded. The first 2 Donkey Kong Countries for example. But there are buts. Since my GBA games are super pristine, I am done collecting for GBA. It would be too hard to get them to match my GBA games condition.

I have Breath of Fire I and II and Final Fantasy VI on GBA for example. If there is a handheld version of RPGs I usually go for that, unless it is terribly downgraded. Nothing like playing a 2D sprite based RPG on that tiny Micro screen.

Tiny GBA screen is a big part of it. I also really like the SNES controller.

Back when Micro first came out (yeah it was later in GBA life) I thought how much I wished more RPGs got ported over bc I loved playing on it so much. So amazing how our taste ranges the whole spectrum here. I still love the SNES though and that OSSC does make those 2D pixels super sharp. But I'd play them all on GBA if they were released officially.

Have you ever tried playing your Game Boy Advance titles on a Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Player (GameCube)? To say it's "eye opening" would definitely be an understatement. wink

Make a pinball game the game of the month and we can get it on.

I would counter with the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Player (GameCube). But, I can't because the Controller -- Hori Digital Pad (GameCube) is ridiculously unattainable. Otherwise, it'd be a different story. wink

I'd vote for it but no one else would. Turns out German dance music is great for my focus. I think I broke my previous high score on the Dreamlands table.

IIRC the GBA has a different aspect ratio than the SNES?
In most cases I prefer the original UNLESS it adds some features such as extra levels or save functionality. Or in the case of Chrono Trigger, it's significantly cheaper.
