Got a question? Got a comment? Got a concern? Got a beef? Be heard.

Q: I am looking to find a Playstation 2 for cheap, hopefully 100 dollars or
less... My grandfather really wanted one for Chanukah... can you give me an
idea (on where) to look?

A: Sorry he didnít get what he wanted; sometimes the holidays can be so cruel. Anyway, the absolute cheapest youíll probably be able to find it at is $169.99, and then itís usually used or refreshed. But, word Ďround the campfire is that a price drop is coming very soon, so within the next few months you may be able to get a new system around the same price (and possibly with extra pack-ins like Ratchet and Clank or a Network Adaptor or even a Hard Drive). It would also be wise to think that the price of used and refurbished systems would go down, possibly breaking the $100 barrier, or at least getting pretty damn close.

Q: I want a game on the PS2 that is as good as Baldurís Gate? Is it possible?

A: If you mean as good as Baldurís Gate: Dark Alliance you can try Gauntlet Legends (which you can probably find pretty cheap now) or even Summoner 2, which is much more of an RPG but definitely has that action edge. If you mean as good as the PC game Baldurís Gate 2: Shadows of Amn or the expansion pack Throne of Baal, there really isnít one. Traditional PC style RPGS never really cross over into the console world, despite the fact that a few console style RPGS have tried to cross over to PC land. If you own an Xbox you can pick up Morrowind. It may not be the isometric view, D&D style role-playing game that Baldurís Gate is, but it is definitely a PC style RPG. But, if I may, might I suggest picking up the excellent but often overlooked PC game Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magik Obscura? It is one of the best RPGs ever made, in my opinion, and even surprises the venerable Baldurís Gate because of its unique setting and twists on the classic, role-playing stereotypes and assumptions.

Q: In your opinion what is the best Playstation 2 First person shooter?

A: Well, technically its not my opinion since I never played it, but I hear Timesplitters 2 is suppose to be the best console FPS ever, even better than the h-bomb of console FPS hype, Halo.
