Guess what!?! We are back. Yes we did take a couple of months off, but now
we are back. We think most of you will appreciate the charts coming back and
some of you wont. This is the point for those of you who liked the charts in
the past to read on and for those of you who hated it to stop. The charts
have more or less staid the same. The rules have been updated a little to
encourage quality games. But we believed that allthough controversial at times
the charts had a solid point system and hence we did not chnage it much.
But enough of that. It is summer and that means chicks and sun and fun for
most of us. Well guess what it showed. Releases of good games almost came to
a standstill during the month of July. However, fear not because as always we
have all the interesting little facts and stories you long for. We tell it
the way we see it and how we heard it. Like it or not you will just have to
agree to disagree because one thing is for clear: Do not come and bitch to us
how everything is unfair and waited in this or the other groups favour. The
reason for this being if you take a step back and look at how we come up with
the points you will see it is a solid system. It encourages ENGLISH speaking
FINALS which can be played on a NTSC system (this is because the largest
number of PSX gamers have or can play NTSC games). If you have something to
say that is critical, but constructive please email us at [email protected]
So let us dig in and see who comes out on top this month. Enjoy!

                If you see any flaws please notify us at: 
 
                         [email protected] 
  
                Or stop by on EFNet IRC if we are around

We have developed a scoring system that goes on a scale up to 4. As people who read
the old PSX World will notice, this one is quite different because of changing
situations and releases in the PSX scene, We still go by our old 'strict' 
methods of ruling though.

-2 Points - A Bad CD Image Not Corrected or Corrected by Another group, An Old Game
 (Over 2 Months Old), A JAP Dupe (Already out in the USA), Just a Plain Old dupe
 (Same thing already released in the Past by another group)

-1 Point - PAL Dupe (Already out in the USA), A Beta or Alpha not labeled as such,
 A Bad CD Image that is repacked/fixed by the same group that released the original
 Bad Image, An Uncracked Game.

0 Points - Crap/Unplayable JAP games - Well be the judge on this one, but mainly
 Jap's from no-name companies that are RPG/Strategy/Mahjong/Patchinko/Dating 
 Sims etc. etc. etc. You get the point. 
 A lost RACE. Whoever wins on the most 'top sites' will get the points.
 PAL to NTSC HK Silvers.
 BETAS labeled as BETAS.  
 DOX (Manuals, Covers, Walkthroughs etc.)

1 Point - PAL/NTSC Selectors, Trainers, Other Coding works of Art 
          Good Demos (2nd Discs of games, E3 Demos etc. not those ones that
          come with Monthly PSX Mags :)

2 Points - Half Decent JAP games, Average PAL firsties

3 Points - Average USA games, Good JAP and PAL firsties

4 Points - A standout title, what everyones talking about and playing - pretty
 much the majors of the month, generally 3-5 of these per month.

Breakdown - Accession managed to stick around like they usually do. Two nice
releases in Arkanoid and 360. Watch the unplayable JAP stuff. It doesn't
hurt you points wise, but we all know nobody leeches those games. At the end
of the months ACC decided to race on a couple of games, but they just lost
both against CNG and KAL. But for all of us who forget what competition is
ACC provided a little at the end of the month. Next time maybe they will come
out on top. 

RockmanX - ACC had an average month like they generally do, They had 1
PAL Dupe and a game which was released with missing rars which never showed
up (Assault Suits Valken 2), These 2 really hurt them. Good releases on Pop
N Tanks, Arkanoid, and 360 though. They have proven towards the end of the
month that they can complete in the Japanese scene taking away quite a few
games away from DVNpSX this past week. Hopefully we can see some better
JAP releases from them next month.

RockmanX - CNG Started off the month horrible, putting out 1 JAP Dupe not
labeled as such, 1 game thats months old, and a non working game. Towards
the last few days though they pulled out the 2nd biggest USA game of the 
month in Jade Cocoon which is one of their first USA releases over the
summer. Great Job on that one. Rakugaki Show Time was missing the CUE 
inside the RARs but it was corrected rather quickly so it wont get
negative point's. But overall the game is crap. CNG did as many things
this month to help them as hurt them, so they end up with 0 Points.
Hopefully CNG can come through with some top USA titles like they used 
to next month when some of the school guys return.
 
Breakdown - Seems as if CNG has gone on summer vacation. I know a couple of
the guys are real busy and can't pay as much attention to the scene as they
used to, but rest assured they will come back in a few weeks. If they do,
remember that you heard it here first :)! Basically many of the games CNG
released were old (KKND), bad (Toma), or crap (SO1), but Jade Cocoon was a
nice change from an otherwise uncharacteristic month for CNG. Let us hope
they provide us with the quality that we have come to expect in August.

Breakdown - Same old Same old Same old. JAP crap dominates. Seems as if
DVNPSX picks up all the crap nobody else wants. I must note that there was
an exception to that rule with a +4 game (LOM), which I suppose many of you
RPG lovers appreciated (I do not count myself to that strange group). If it
came down to points based on MB released I think DVNPSX might claim the top
spot. I have this horrible feeling that you guys don't really care about the
PSX scene, but I will ask you to watch the totally unplayable crap.
  
RockmanX - DVNpSX dominated Average and Crap JAP games this month.. And
out of nowhere also pulled out Legend of Mana, one of the biggest Japs
of this month. Great Job on that. Towards the end of the month they
started only doing Average games and not Total Crap like they did at
the beginning of the month. I don't expect much to change next month
with this group.. Just the same old JAP.

Breakdown - From what I understand Interpol was the union of crap releases
from two groups. However after some major dispute about skill, attitude, etc.
some of the members of these two groups got all pissed at each other and as
we all could see IPL went kind of dead in the 2nd half of the month. All I
have to say is that for all you guys who get so worked up about one another:
GET A LIFE. It is all a game. If you can't handle an insult over the net I
do not want to see what you do to your girlfriend (those of you who actually
have one) if she talks back to you.

RockmanX - IPL mainly did the garbage that no other groups bothered doing,
then kind of died at the 2nd half of the month. Who knows or cares what'll
happen with these guys.

1-LINER: Will IPL be back!?! Or will it take down others along the way ?

RockmanX - KAL dominated this month just like last. Considering a majority
of the big points on this chart come from USA games, It is not too tough
to see who has been on top all summer long. With the rest of the competition
only focusing on JAP/PAL and not USA KAL dominated and got every single 
USA game this month except for Jade Cocoon. A Majority of the playable
and major JAPs this month came from KAL as well, 2 exceptions being Legend
of Mana and Vandal Hearts 2. This group is just dominating over the summer
and I don't think we will see much difference next month, though changes 
could come in September and later when the rest of the groups wake up 
and start competing in the USA.
  
Breakdown - Overall it was a solid month for KAL. A crappy game managed to
sneak in there, but then there were some titles that were very nice. KAL
managed to get the best of the US part of the scene for sure. I am not sure
I am a big fan of the MANUAL that was release toward the end of the month.
Many wil say, but they are accepted in the PC scene. Those of you who know
me will know that I don't give a shit about what the PC scene does. To some
of you a manual may add value, but even when I buy a game I never use the
manual. Part of the fun is to figure out how to do shit. Anyway, enough on
that. I personally really liked the release of Everybody's Golf 2.

Breakdown - I gotta give it to PDX for coding a util for the benefit of the
PSX scene. I think the PSX scene needs more of this and PDX set a good example
It seems that after the first week or so in JULY the games stop coming, but
the patches didn't. PDX remains undoubtly the best coding group for the PSX.
I don't see the need for 10 different Ape Escape cracks, but that is just me.
I guess the Frogs and Krauts on slow connections need it, but still I think
those patches are kinda crap (the game is way old now). Nascar 99 had no
differences compared to the previous version so it earns a DUPE.
Rumours have it that there has been some major turmoil within the group and
some of the guys have left to form spin offs etc. it will be interesting to
see what happens, but as long as the quality coding does the talking I think
they will be ok.

RockmanX - PDX had a decent month. Their games were not so great, but their
patches made up for that. The PPF format was a GREAT idea since this can
be run on many platforms and not just Windows. The Ape Escape patches
towards the end of the month were kind of lame but theyll get points 
anyway. PDX seems to have stopped doing games and going only to patches,
this is a pretty wise choice as most of their games were total crap and
the patches is where the good part of PDX lies. Good luck with the 
coding next month.

1-LINER: Coding = HOT  / The Rest = Kinda NOT

Breakdown - Hmmmm I wonder where these coders came from. Nice to see some
competition for PDX. The games that were released were kinda old and that F.A.
patch was for a game released in June, so I doubt anybody still has it
available. Keep up the good coding, but crank up the speed on those releases.

RockmanX - Another group that goes like PDX/ACC pretty much, Coding &
PAL Games. The coding is hot and the PAL games are not. 

1-LINER: Coders first. Releasers .... maybe next time!

Breakdown - Nothing to say here really. JAP crap as so many other groups.

RockmanX - The worst group this month pretty much.. Putting out crap only.
Megaman Legends II Demo Hardly got its 1 point.. Oh well.

Breakdown - An oldtimer trying to stay alive. Good to see you guys still
giving it a go, but we will need to see more in the future on you could end
up with DA REST (a new category, scroll down to view).

RockmanX - Things have really went down the tube for WackyISO, They used to
dominate the top JAP releases but that doesnt seem to hold true anymore.
Shanghai is just crap that no other groups bothered doing. Hope to see you
guys come back and compete with DVN/KAL for the top titles soon.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


DA REST! - 


What is DA REST? It is all the IND/RANDOM releases of the month. All groups
that are not established, are IND, only released FAKES, etc. will be tossed
into this category. If you are in here you know you ain't too HOT. But we
figured that some of our readers want to use these charts like an archive
so they can look back and see what was released. But since it is generally
CRAP we will not even take our precious time to write a commentary.

The Scene was Very Slow this month. There were a few majors like Driver,
Jade Cocoon, and Legend of Mana popping up but these are nothing compared
to the games we were seeing back in February - April. Also back then there
was a lot more competition going on, This month is simply KALISTO Domination
and the same goes for last month. We think once the Summer is over we can
see some more competition coming for the current #1 force, KALISTO. Also
as you can notice, a lot of the groups in the All Time ranking have stopped
releasing. Back in March we used to see 10+ groups releasing, lately its
only 9, a couple of them being groups focusing on crap only or releasing
1 game and taking the rest of the month off. Overall, this was not
a great month to start the charts off again with but it had to happen
sometime. Hopefully the competition will start up again in the following
months and I'm sure all of you reading this hope for the same. Expect
another issue next month and not for us to bail out on you guys again
like we did in May.
