Drop me a line at jmichaelneal@comcast.net if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.

Q: I've always reset my PS2 and then ejected the tray when I want to play a different game. Ever since I installed the NA though, I press the reset button and the system shuts off. I looked through the manual and didn't find anything in regards to this. Is this a failsafe in the event that the HDD will be introduced to the system in the coming months? Or is my PS2 tweakin'? Fill me in people.

A: Most, if not all, PS2 owners have begun experiencing this phenomenon after installing the Network Adaptor. The only advice Sony had to give me was to contact their 1-800 number and talk to a customer service representative, but I doubt they could help you out. It seems that only NA compatible games cause the PS2 to behave this way, possibly suggesting that it has something to do with the NA drivers. If this is the case then it means a simple driver upgrade could solve this problem.

Q: Can someone tell me what the heck is the point of the dog tags [in MGS2]? I can't figure out why I should stick my neck out for these things, it seems like a needless risk. What's the reward for collecting them?

A: They are worth playing the game 50 times over to find. Why you ask? They unlock secret items that let you play the game through with infinite ammo and optical stealth cameo. Does that sound like a needless risk to you?

Q: I just got NFL2k3 but it doesn't seem to have many people online. I can take it back and get Madden, but which game has more people playing online?

A: Madden 2003 has more people online playing it than you can shake a stick at! You enter a lobby and within 15 seconds you’ll be flooded with invitations to join a game. If you feel that online population is important to you, choose Madden.

Q: What's the difference between the ordinary platinum (or gold or silver, whatever) and blue-bottomed discs? One friend said it was more Collectors’ value if it's blue. Is it true?

A: Your friend was either trying to mess with your head, or simply under the wrong impression: Blue discs are CD-ROMs, Silver are DVDs. Nothing more, nothing less.

Note: A reader wrote in to ask why wasn’t she seeing as many open games in SOCOM as her friends. If you also find that very few online games are available to you in SOCOM, try changing your filters. Those limit the games that are shown to you while in a lobby, and if you only see a few it is probably because your filters are too restrictive. Try setting them to be the highest levels and see if that helps.
