Throwing in the Towel
For several years, team SirVG has released over many GBA & NDS releases to the scene.
Today, with their 252nd release, the team has decided to throw in the towel.
The team quit because of on-going disputes behind the scenes (in the scene; see the below quote).
Goodbye, SirVG, and thanks for all your contributions to the GBA & NDS scene.
Team SirVG Note said:While it seems very odd to be doing this just 2 releases after our big 250th release celebration, this is something that we've thought about and decided needs to be done.
It's time to say goodbye.
While we're sure a lot of you will be upset at this decision, as you're happy to laugh at these games, or have a few of our releases for your kids/younger siblings, frankly, there are some things happening behind the scenes in the scene that are so negative, that we can't tolerate its behaviour any longer. We won't mention names, as we don't feel it's right or proper, but those people know who they are. And while they may gloat that they've won at removing us from the scene, we don't care, honestly. Nearly 2.5 years ago, we made an open decision to help out by releasing ROMs of nearly a dozen GBA games in a market that was slowly not caring about the console. We wanted to breathe a little more life into the system. And at 108 games, we think we did. A year later, we were open to the possibility of continuing our work with the Nintendo DS. It took a couple months to get stabilized, but we've proven that we're no
slouches at 144 releases (162 if you count the demos). But something in life will always tell you if it's time to move on, and we've received that message.
