Releasewise, they could see themselves being beaten in quantity only by F4CG, but made sure to focus on the aspects of bringing out games of a steady seal of quality. THE DUNGEON, by many regarded as the most popular board there is, and indes- putable fact is still up and running, something that is admirable seeing such a stagnation in the boardmarket state- wise. At a time when European boards are popping at pace that competes with the growth of the African population, and the American boards tend to fade, we can still enjoy calling in at THE DUNGEON. Another aspect on the Dutch Cooperation is their efforts in fixing games. Today the firstreleases have a tendency of coming out PAL only, and if fixed, it is highly improbable that an American rests behind the job. These Dutch ambitious fellows, have provided the boards with fixed games, something that not only boosts quality, but also draws up a sharp line between what is to be considered as a proper release and not. If they now only could avoid cheating the releasecharts in what used to be their magazine, VANDALISM, we'd have a rather perfect harmony running. Let us hope for that. d=b 'o' ____________________________________/_\_ ________________________________________ M Most Invaluable group right now _________________ .. CHROMANCE .. >< CHROMANCE >< _________________ M Members dropping like flies and internal confusion ________________________________________ We have always been looking upon the Hungarian based CHROMANCE as a reliable group in quality. They have kept a rather anonymous and low profile out in the field, but always seen to it to deliver the goodies, sometimes start- ling us with unexpected releases. With most of the people from the early days, CHROMANCE lost a lot of its focus. New people were added, some came out in the limelight. When SPLATTERHEAD annou- nced his deparature, many saw the poss- ibilties for the group fade. HOMEBOY was spotted asking questions about his own group in public, inn mere confusion. Today he is in ONSLAUGHT. What can we from the group futurewise? More. ________________________________________ M Most Interesting Event right now ___________ d=b d=b 'o' X'95 'o' /_\ X /_\ ___________ Finally a decent party outside Scandinavia for 64 and PC. ________________________________________ Scandinavians have always been pioneers in the field of organizing parties. In the very early days, back in the mid- 8O's, Sweden went down to history with legendary parties, but also Norway, Denmark, and most recently Finland have put themselves on the map in the party- attendants notebook. That is why we particulary enjoy seeing a Dutch party being organized under traditional stand- ards. 64-wise, Holland has the benefit being located in a more central part of Europe, attracting, the Dutch, the German and other close countries. People that tend not to show up at Scandinavian parties. What we hope now, is that the Scandinavians pack their bags and settle for a few days in Holland. We will. ________________________________________ M Most Admirable effort right now ____________ d=b ONSLAUGHT d=b 'o' ONSLAUGHT 'o' /_\ /_\ ___________ For daring to compete ________________________________________ It is not often these days that groups are born that threaten the very top of the market. We wander through groups that have become habitual trademarks, seldom anything new appears. ONSLAUGHT came on as a project from various groups throughout the world, where JAZZ- CAT, former member from LEGEND seems to be in charge of the core of the group. ONSLAUGHT have allready proved they're just not an overnight hype. We have seen a few very decent releases, and word has it there is still much to come. They also succeeded in taking over DOWN BY LAW, that was going through a rough time with the now buried TALENT. ONSLAUGHT may very well be a new, wanted breed in our digital culture.
