Is Florida a tech hot spot? I'd think it would be highly undesirable as a location due to hurricanes, but I've never been so I dunno...

If you're more than a couple of miles inland, hurricanes aren't really that big a deal. But I don't know where in Florida this place is. Nor who Ignition Entertainment is.

Wikipedia is your friend. Ignition Entertainment is probably best known for their Mercury franchise (the most recent one being Mercury Meltdown Revolution for the Wii). They also publish all of SNK Playmore's games in Europe.

Ignition earned a special place in my heart for publishing


The special place has Hitler sitting behind a desk yelling Engrish abuse! And yeah, the whole PAL SNK fighters. Neo Geo Battle Coliseum. <3

It's a tech spot. Safety depends on where they are. Inland generally is safer while the east coast is higher risk.
