People say Nintendo never should have let go of Rare.  It's DMA they never should have let go.  It's amazing how Body Harvest had all of the basics of GTA already built.

Monolith Soft.

They were a throw away developer for many studios, having both Xenoblade and Xenosaga rushed to their completion (which was very noticeable if you played the series). After they were acquired by Nintendo, they seem to not only have been trusted in handling Nintendo's major franchises (such as their help in the development of Skyward Sword, A Link Between Worlds, Animal Crossing New Leaf, and Pikmin 3), but have released what is widely regarded as the greatest JRPG of 7th gen with Xenoblade Chronicles. This is a MAJOR feat considering how far removed from the rest of the series the game actually is.

These guys piss excellence.

I agree. But it think you meant to say xenogears e



Infinity Ward acquisition by Activision ? After all that's how COD went to Activision ?



Most of the studios acquired by Sony, as well as Bungie of course.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Ensemble Studios by Microsoft, you made some great games, RIP
