Very good news.

At least this publisher isn't wary of the Wii or the DS.


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

Well they are Nintendo's bum chums.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

That is a recent thing though. They never used to be.

If anything, they've previously tried to spread things evenly. Good to see the change. Luminous Arc looks amazing!

Well, actually in the last Generation there were a LOT of games for the PS2 and PSP, and when combined, certainly higher then the amount for GC and DS.

So it's good to see this majority shift to the Wii and DS.

Yes, but they were one of the first publishers to be shown the Wii.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

So were Sega. OMG bum chums!

Good news, lets hope more developers follow suit Smilie

Yes, they are very close at the moment as well, I agree. But Marvelous are a small publisher of games with relatively low production values.

Dunno everybody says Nintendo & SEGA are on great terms but SEGA have their two middle fingers up SONY arse for that to be true.

Just look at the PS3 launch SEGA titles 4 or 5 i believe and the Wii only has Monkey Ball.

Yeah but they are developing the titles from the ground up which is riskier than dumping last gen port with wi controles on the console.

They've been the best 3rd party on the Wii so far in my opinion, and there are loads of rumours of things brewing in the background. They're also licensing a load of their most famous games to a Nintendo branded download service which is more significant than you might think.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

I hope this doesn't mean we'll just get loads of HM variations.

  • HM: For Girls under 11
  • HM: For Mature-Elderly Caucasian Males.

    I reckon Marvelous would make a stonker of a Puzzle Game. Smilie

  • Yeah, I get what you mean Grumbler. Sorry, my last post was a bit stupid.

    Harvest Moon eh?
