When I think Dallas, Texas game culture it is gearbox that comes to mind. Despite going to college in Dallas I didn't work with this company until finding my first studio job in Florida at Shadows in Darkness, aka Darkside Games. Shadows was an outsource studio that has had a heavy hand in many things Gearbox since Borderlands 1 and before. The culture and character that oozed from Gearbox could be seen and felt working at Darkside Games. Great people and opportunity all around.
