I don't think you're going to find a NES component cable anywhere.

Assuming you meant composite lol. But wait, there's more! NES composite cables aren't proprietary, not sure why you're were exclusively searching Goodwill for them. Just go to Wal Mart or a dollar store or Radio Shack. They're just RCA cables.

Cause Goodwill has them for $.25 or cheaper usually. Even the dollar store can't beat that.

Wal-mart is overpriced and I've had bad experiences with Radioshack RCA cables. I know what type of cable I'm looking for.

Wal-mart is overpriced and I've had bad experiences with Radioshack RCA cables. I know what type of cable I'm looking for.

In my OCD get the correct color appearing cable for my NES I did not want the red and white stereo cables. Drove to two stores to find just a yellow video and standard mono white cable set, silly me I could have just yanked the red cable off a a three cable patch cord. But wait a minute the NES does have a specialized cable, it is Red and Yellow! :?

Bah! I ended up throwing in a Y Adaptor for the audio leads since it goes to a Stereo TV anyways. I even had to add to the expense with a couple 90 degree elbows to make room for another console sitting next to it. At least I didn't rip apart a second patch cable. :oops:

for $2.50 :D

Couldn't find the sensor anywhere. It may or may not pop up there eventually, but I'm sure I'll find one somewhere.

UPDATE: Special thanks to girlracer for seeing my post and sending me a super scope sensor along with our recent trade. I'm happy to say that I tested the gun and it works like a charm. :D

Flea markets were a bust today, I did find a couple strategy guides (namely GTA III and Vice City) and paid $2 for a handful of them.

I needed to get a surge protector so I swung by K-mart and checked out their $19.99 and under bargain bin.

Sin and Punishment 2 was in there marked for $12.99. I took it to the register and it came up as $5.99 (!). Great deal.
