Jade has published Episode 6 of the 360 Prophecy over at XBOX.ca, feel free to make the jump and check it out. This week we're talking about XNA Game Studio, which was recently released by Microsoft to all those avid game-dev wanna-bees out there (like me).
After playing around with it for a few days I can honestly say that it does, in fact, make development significantly easier. I'm no master C# programmer but even I was able to get a pretty killer version of Pong together in only a few days.
Oh, and I realize the comic says 'upcomic release of XNA'. I actually drew this up a couple of weeks ago thinking that it would be posted back then. Oops!
