    [​IMG] Team SirVG Says Goodbye
    Throwing in the Towel
    [​IMG]

    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.

    Oh. That sucks. I don't know much about them, but it seems they play a big role for GBAtemp's NDS Release list.

    I wonder who those people are... But, it says they don't want to point out any names.

    Who will dump old and bad games now? Oh right someone else.

    Edit: Why would you wonder who 'those people' are when theres a guy on here called SIR VG who posts in most of their release threads.

    Yeah, exactly - the less sweeping up of NDS ROMs, the better! [​IMG]

    Their "sweeping up" made less work for other groups having to do so.
    The team helped the scene and had done what other teams did not want to do (grabbing the less-popular, shitty games and releasing them) for the NDS scene. For that, you've got to respect them.

    They did the games that no-one really cared about dumping because they were not the uber must have games, but someone had to it, and do it they did. For that reason I say thank you and I wish you all well..

    Also i forgot, SirVG is staff on a site which sells roms. So he certainly doesn't deserve a news article on here at all. I don't think anyone here supports selling warez do they? The only reason he dumped all this crap was due to the profits from the site. LGC didn't get an article about it when they left and they actually did GOOD games and didn't sell roms.
