SOCOM II. As long as they prevent the cheaters, it will surpass the first. It looks amazing. I spent 5 months from August to January until the cheating became just too bad so I moved onto MOHAA. If they prevent it, I'll be in paradise.

Exactly why I sold my Network Adaptor. Socom is not a fun game to play online. Tribes is the only decent shooter.

Never play on the North American lobbies, too many cheaters their. I play Canada West, awesome servers. Its not like the North American Servers where there are a few good people, a few moderately good people, and 75% newbies. It's a good mix of good and moderately good people. I like it. I've been playing there for at least 3 months without seeing a cheater once.

Xbox Live has pretty much the same amount, but does have a few more shooters. And all games from now on are using the same DNAS software that Xbox Live uses to not allow people with modchips or cheat devices to play online.
Cause if you're not cheap, you're not trying!

Back to SS4Brolly's point, Tribes is probably one of the best shooting games to play online for the PS2 out now.

I expected more from some of you. Tribes and Socom are not simply shooters. They are First Person Shooters. When you say shooters it makes me thing of games like Einhander, R-Type, Radient Silvergun, and others like them. Let's differentiate from now on shall we?

Umm...do you mind telling me since when was $50, for a year, a monthly fee? Thats the same price as a regular new video game, and if you play online a lot, then its more than worth the money. Plus with no cheaters and the great organization of XBL, I feel that I spent my ($30- Sale at CC) well, instead of the $40 I spend on a network adapter which I recentely traded.

I hope this question fits here. I just replaced my old ps2 with a slim one and set it up and tested it out and everything. The new buttons and disc tray were a little weird to get used to, but I liked the slimmed version alot.

So then after I get done testing things out, I reach for the off switch in the back as I normally would when I realized "WTF, where's the off switch??" Then I had to pull out the manual and found out that there is no off switch, you can only put it in standby mode. The manual says you can put it on standby mode, but to unplug it if not used for a long time.

Is a long time like a few days or a weeks?

Then one more thing. I was playing with my PS2 and after a couple hours, I noticed it got really hot fast. Er.. would this be considered normal? If that's the case, then my sleepless nights of RPG-ing will turn my PS2 into a molten slag. Because I realized that there's no cooling fan inside the console.

Anyone know if I'm worrying too much?

Im looking for websites, tutorials, online shops, anything to do with PS2 Mods performance and case wise. But the thing is I don't really care about the Modchip thing. It seems drastic and I don't care about getting it to play certain disc's. All I really want to do is enhance its performance. Specifically finding ways to keep it cooler by getting better airflow. Can anybody help me out? Thanks.

I was kind of annoyed by this too, but they said it's normal and not to worry. I used to unplug and even COVER my old fat PS2s and every one had problems. So now, I leave the 50001 I swapped my slim PStwo for in standby mode(unless there's going to be a t-storm, then I at least shut it down via the power switch). Someone DID disassemble a slim and I think they SHOWED a small fan situated on the bottom most part of the system, but I never felt any warm air being pushed out of the system. That's why I swapped for a fat PS2, because I didn't like the warmness.

In Japan the silver slim had multiple problems with compatability with BOTH PS1 and PS2 games and in the US I've read reports of silver slims bricking within a month of being bought. So, I guess the DREs are the least of peoples worries anymore with the now slim PStwo. Hell, even my one buddy whose family has a silver slim has had problems with it not wanting to read ANY discs because the spindle won't spin them the first or second time starting it up. Just another problem to add to Sony's JunkBox 2.

Oh and Cheapy, would you consider adding the following link to YouTube for people wanting to clean their DRE PS2's laser. It's a video which SHOWS the steps being done and doesn't tell people to adjust the height of their laser as a FIRST step(which can lead to disc scratching if done improperly). I think it's well done and if I had a video cam, I could've probably made the same type of vid, since I've done this umpteen times myself.

Here's the link, I think it shows how to do it QUITE well:


i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Just got an HDTV and am wondering the same thing. Also, what's the best way to hook up my PS2 to the new tv. Component I presume? Are generics good or should I go with Sony brand? Any help is greatly appreciated.
