Comment: Unfortunately, I have fallen on some bad times recently and have missed responding to some offers and messages. I will try my best to get on the ball and certainly understand if you wish to move on to another trader. Take Care one and all! Interests: Quote:
Adventure gaming! And, well. . . can't think of anything I can say publicly. Likes:
See above, and the comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.adventure newsgroup!
Umm . . .
Will trade movies for games!Note: IF you want something on my available list and have a game that's not on my wanted list, or if you want more than one of my games for your game, make me an offer. Perhaps we can cook up something good for both of us! In fact I'll consider ANY offer. It never hurts to ask!
I have had two problematic ratings in my first 150 trades and I encourage you to check them out. The first was concerning the condition of a game. Note that I am always willing to send a picture to let you see the condition for yourself, or for any other reason.
The second concerned a delay in sending the game because I was not given the correct address.
Often I am really subjective about game value. Sometimes, for example, a friend may give me a game that is selling for $50 or more, but it's not a game I'm interested in so it doesn't have much value TO ME and I might be persuaded to let it go for a game of lesser value but which I WANT very badly. Go figure!
Besides my main interest in PC games, I am especially interested in ADVENTURE
games for the Playstation and Playstation 2
. I have some listed but I don't know about a lot of them. So if you have one, I'd like to hear about it.
Newbies Welcome! (Go on, try it! It's fun!)
I like to PayPal, do you?
Also, I like to do combo deals, as my trades list shows.
Also also, on USA trades I use the cheap delivery confirmation and request that trading partners do the same. (Delivery Confirmation is FREE with Priority Mail if you print the label on the usps.com site!) I usually send by First Class Mail, but do not require that others do the same. In general, I'm poor. I live on the USA's Social Security Disablity Benefits. Therefore, when possible, for international trades I prefer to use First Class International Mail rather than Priority International Mail. To me the wait is worth the savings. Also, I usually don't feel that insurance is necessary.
A note on combo deals: If you don't think an offer is fair, don't be afraid to "sweeten the deal" by asking for another game too or some money or something. I'm willing to try very hard to make a deal we're both happy with.
I am an adventure fanatic (Tex Murphy rules!), with occasional leanings toward action FPS or RPG hybrids if there's a good plot (like Deus Ex), or at least an intriguing premise (like Thief - which I find AMAZING). I also admit to enjoying kids' games at least as much as the MATURE rated stuff, and that some puzzles befuddle. (Yea, I have sinned into the Valley of Walkthroughs. I still have such a great time though!)
I've gotten some sweet deals and met great people in the Zone, and I hope to meet a lot more. The people are without doubt the best thing about trading.
Happy trading one and all!Atari Anniversary Edition games:
Asteroids (one of my favorites!)
Asteroids Deluxe (have no idea what makes it "deluxe")
Battlezone (another favorite)
Pong (we had a knock-off from Sears & we played it like crazy when I was a kid)
Tempest (Yet another favorite!)
(Also has an interview with Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari.)
