Microsoft announced today the availabilite at the end of the month of XNA Studio Express. This development suite, costing $100 a year, will allow anyone with a bit of programming knowledge to create his own games for PC and for Xbox 360. The Xbox Live distribution system isn't really well known yet, but I think we can count on Microsoft to really push this content. In the news you'll find images from demos done with XNA Express and/or with the Torque Engine it's shipped with. Update : One small but important information. The development environment itself seems to be free, the $99 a year subscription would only be necessary to be able to use the compiled code on the 360.
I'm sure there will be releases this year that I'm still unaware of too. The next release for me: Celeste. (51 minutes ago)
Still finding plenty of stuff that I do want to play. Even AAA stuff sometimes :) (55 minutes ago)
I'm probably anticipating one of those games but that's just because AAA is mostly garbage. (56 minutes ago)
the most in the early 90's, before i bought a playstation and stopped playing computer games. Also enjoy playing games from my childhood. (1 Hour ago)
I gradually got a bit indifferent to the games being released over the last 10 years. I found joy in gaming again when i went back to playing flight simulators the last year, which was what i played (1 Hour ago)
@droezelke: i think its time for you to find a new hobby (1 Hour ago)
I hear ya. Game in general just don't seem to do it for me as I get older. A shame too considering I have decent bandwidth that only took 20 years to get. Which may leave soon; if you know what. (1 Hour ago)
