For all those that were bothered by the fact that Nintendo did nothing for Samus Aran's 25th this year, here's a couple of other games that have gotten overlooked. Darius, Adventure Island, Dizzy, Athena, Castlevania, Milon's Secret Castle and Bubble Bobble. Bub and Bob are able to rent a car now guys! That's madness!
What's not madness is that Texas' Film Board is raising the reimbursement program for game companies in the state. The level is jumping from 5% to 15% and is now at the same level that film is in the state. This will produce an additional 300 jobs from EA Sports in Austin and that's just the start. This is good for the industry.
I disagree with a lot of business practices this state does, but supporting arts and entertainment industries can never be a bad thing. Good job Texas.
I really don't know how to end this insane rambling, so in the spirit of a government institution recognizing that gaming is on par with film...
