Well thats funny b/c last time I was in that same store (according to your pic's receipt) I had a conversation about rare 7800 games with another fellow customer, he was near the counter/register, & I was by the door/Playstation games so we were basically talking the length of the store, so anyone in the place HAD to hear us- including the owner.
I mentioned I used to have some of the rarer 7800 titles- Ninja Golf, Commando, Alien Brigade, but since sold them years back. & Im pretty sure the other guy started rattling of what these titles are currently worth.
So the owner almost certainly knew what he had there...usually that place is too expensive for my tastes, but thats a damn good find.


Honestly I'd be really surprised if the store owner didn't know what Ninja Golf was worth, since I stop in there and shoot the breeze with him once or twice a month about Atari games and he's always been very knowledgeable about pretty much everything relating to Atari. I actually bought my Light Sixer model 2600 that I use almost every day from him and most of the 2600 games I own are from that store as well.

So if I had to venture a guess I'd say he probably did know what Ninja Golf was worth and just gave me a ridiculously good deal on it because I've bought so much Atari stuff from him in the past, and I'm guessing he was feeling sorry for me since I had just had surgery and was in pretty rough shape.

The Atari-Bird laid another cardboard square egg at the front door for me this morning ...

After getting it all tested I decided to put my NES Classic Mini into a pic with all the accessories I've bought lately...

 

I probably went a little overboard.  I like the Emio Edge Joysticks and Gamepads...The off brand controller with the concave (instead of convex) buttons is a little mushy in the  button department compared to the Emios and Nintendos.  Also I got a case, some extension cables, and a Mayflash Adapter...

Picked up a Hollywood Heat.  This one's getting a Miami Vice retheme.

I had a few pickups these last few months and figured I’d update my finds.


Famicom Classic.  Essentially the as the same exact thing as the NES classic but readily available so anyone looking for a NES Classic should get this.  Slightly different games but everything is playable, Mega Man is Rock Man, Zelda still in English.  It has two hard wired MINI controllers and they are TINY.  Some games like Metroid & Zelda actually go through the Famicom Disc System and have loading screen and the extra audio sounds.  I also bought the Disc System Stand that is essentially a drawer.

Samurai Shodown IV.  Amazing game for the CD and incredible Grafx/Animation.  So many different fighting styles to keep the replay value for years.

Metal Slug 2.  Absolutely better than X after a recent play though.  I am thinking of having it modded to reduce the slowdown.

Waku Waku 7, what a weird game!!!  Crazy fighting mechanics and style.  Beautiful game and is now a staple in my cab.

   Garage Sale Pickups of PS1/PS2 stuff.  $1 each.  I think I did good.

Received a Sharp MZ-800 (with a quick disk drive included, so it is a 821 which had the tape drive replaced) with a amber monochrome monitor for my collection.

Great machine ... i tried some wavs to check it.
