I’m spending what free time i have studying XNA game studio 2.0. I didn’t realize until recently that how wonderful XNA GSE is. I don’t care what anyone says, I like Microsoft products, and this is no exception. The amount of online support for XNA is awesome, it’s easy to get started, AND you can publish stuff to your Xbox (that’s where it will cost you money, but it’s only ~100/year). Very cool.
