How can Aladar and friends release the water`? The river is dry
and we cant get further
Joe: Easy suck it up with a straw.
My name is Adam Burton, I e-mailed you before
and you were quick to answer so I figured you would be the best to contact. I have plans
on getting PS2.. I think, but the price is resulting a bit of a problem and I don't feel
like letting my parents pay that much for a machine. I mean they still might but I am not
sure, I am suggesting to them for Christmas (this is suppositly from Santa lol) to get the
playstation cause it is cheap and more affordable and is coming out with NHL 2001. But my
fear is if I get playstation how long will games keep on coming out for PS, is this only
going to be for a year or so? I mean I am 14 and really I should only be looking for games
for the next four years or so lol. So my question to you is, how long will games come out
for playstation, and if they stop when will they stop? also about what time will the price
of playstation 2 come down? (In Canada, I don't know where you live it is $549.99) This is
all I have to say and your answer will be greatly appriciated.
Joe: From this standpoint, I see the original PlayStation as being
heavily supported for the next 5 or 6 months. After that, publishers will be putting all
their resources into their next PS2/DC/X-Box/NGC projects. Sony is going to market the PSX
as "Your little sister's console". In other words, it'll be a machine for kiddy
games and just about nothing else.
I was wondering what will the quality of watching DVDs be like
in the PS2 compared to a standard DVD player.
Joe: I have very little knowledge of DVD lingo, so my answer
will be brief. Official reports from Sony say that the PS2s DVD playability is on
par with most of their top of the line players. From personal experience I honestly see no
difference at all between my PS2 quality and my friends standard DVD players.
Hi, I just bought the game fear effect. but Im having
a problem. hopefully you can help me out. I finished the first disc. but there is no save
or anything on that first disc at the end of it. it tells me to put in disc 2. but when i
do. I cant seem to play the game, it tells me to put in disc one. help!!!!!! thanks
Adrian: Im not sure what I can do for you here. I do know that many
multiple disc games require you to put in the first disc every time you play, (so that the
game can load) and then install the second disc once you have loaded your saved game. Try
playing from the last save and then inserting the disc to see what happens. If things
dont work out, you may have a faulty disc, so I would suggest returning it
Is it safe to play your PS2 on your projection
Joe: As long as you yourself are not physically affected by it,
then by all means its safe.
Jared adds: The only possible damage to your
projection TV could come if you leave a static image on the screen for hours and hours at
a time. As long as the image changes frequently (and you don't fall asleep with the
game on a screen) you should be ok.
what % of psx games will not work on the ps2
Joe: About .02 percent.
Go you bloody legend
Hey mate can you PLEASE give me a full reaport on the GameCube and
PS2, you can make a message board made specially for Nintendo fans to argue with PS2 fans,
please, please, please!!!!!!!!
Your a legend mate.
Hey e-mail me back as soon as you get this and tell me, should I
buy the PS2 or the Gamecube
I'm 13, i love action, blood and guts. I despise Zelda, Mario and
Pokemon and Donkey Kong and I hate most cartoon games. I absaloutly hate the Nintendo
consoles and I always have, but i'm prepared to swap over (not swap over but if you
recommend it i'll buy the PS2 and the Gamecube). Help me man, I wanna show all those
Nintendo freaks in my neighbour hood what console kicks ass, GO THE PS2.
Joe: Okay, so you think Im a legend (?), you love blood
and guts, and you call me "Mate"? Please, dont write back to me again.
I would like to know where I will be able to purchase PS2.
Joe: You can buy a PlayStation 2 at practically any retailer,
online and off, that sells videogames and the likes.
Jared adds: Assuming you can find one of course...
I am looking for a playstation system in and
around the city that I live in as well as internet sites that have online ordering for
playstation 2. Do you know of any place that I can go to find this in stock on an internet
site? If you have any information could you please e-mail me to let me know. Thank you.
Joe: Your best bet is to check out online auction sites such as
eBay.com, but dont expect to find any cheap.
Could u send some pics of Smack Down2 to me. My
E-mail address is Midget1melvind and my scereen name is SilentD....
Joe: If you promise in return to send me a box full of beer and
green, unmarked bills.
Hi. I was wondering if you know when sony
will have their second shipment of playstation 2 due in stores? thanks
Joe: Considering that Sony is actually having problems
with living up to the whole 100,000 a week deal, you should personally check with each
individual retailers to see what they are planning on doing.
I would like to know when the NASCAR RACERS game
for playstation is coming out and where it will be sold?
Thank you, BIG CHARGER FAN!!!!!
Joe: The PSOne version should be out in February
hi guys! i was wondering if u would know where i
could find a move list for WWF Smackdown 1. i have no idea how to do anything!!! see if u
could help! Thanks
Joe: Try checking out GameFaqs.com. Im sure there are
tons of FAQs based on THQs first WWF grappler.
Hiya! My name is john and Im from the UK. I love
football (what u Americans call soccer) and I hope to pick up a playstation 2 when it
launches over here. Are there any planes for some football games to come out on the Ps2?
Joe: You bet. EA Sports should be bringing over FIFA 2001 MLS
for the PS2 as soon as the PlayStation 2 hits European territory.
Hi i was wondering if you knew of any place that
might still have the game "monster rancher2" i have been looking everywhere for
it, it a xmas present for my nephew....if you have any info please let me know if not
thanks for trying
Adrian: All right. I feel much sympathy for people attempting to locate
games, especially when it is a gift. However, you have to understand the difficulty this
presents us when you ask us for assistance. How exactly will we know the inventory
of stores in your location? This problem is multiplied when we have absolutely no clue
where in the heck you live. (Dont anyone take that as an invitation to start telling
me your home town, because Im not going to call stores for you long-distance.) I
will give the benefit of the doubt and assume that you dont purchase games
regularly, and will therefore give you a list of possible stores.
Toys r Us
Give these people a call, and ask if they have the game, and if that
doesnt work, go into the phone book under video games-entertainment or
something similar like games or electronics, and find smaller local stores
and ask them. Thats the best I can do.
Rolfe is _hoping_ that its safe to play on a projection TV
