That's the life of an XNA MVP. When you play with XNA, you're in the power seat. The world is your oyster. When people find out you know how to make games using XNA, doors open. You skip lines. People look at you and think, "Who the heck is that guy? And why did he just walk into the post?"...wait? what?

Ok, so maybe day dreaming all of that while walking isn't such a great idea. But after you regain consciousness and the bump on your head heals, you might just find out that one of those things is true. Yep, that's right. One day you wake up and realize you're married to a hottie!

OXM Well, ok, I have that going for me too, but there's another pretty cool thing that happened as well. I got quoted (several times in fact!) in an article in November edition (that's the one out now) of Official XBox Magazine (OXM). The article's title is OXM vs XNA and is a pretty interesting read as the OXM staff tries to tackle the challenge of making an XNA game. They attempt this feat with little to no programming experience or knowledge. Just reading about their experience and the post mortem on their project is a good lesson for anybody currently working with or interested in making games with the XNA framework.

So if you want to see my pretty face (and James Silva's too!) and see how some passionate gamers fare as they venture into the exciting world of game development pick up a copy at your local new stand. Once you've read it, let me know what you think. Did I say the right things? Do you think their experience is typical for new game developers?

If anyone is looking for a no nonsense way to make money fast, these guys are the best.
It took me a few days to get going, but they were very helpful. After two weeks I received
my first $1,000 check. Two months later and I am up to $1,875 for the last week.
This works by spreading the word, so I'm spreading the word.

I think that's the geek's dream then.. money, nice cars and nice women. But then again that dream is not possible/plausible for at least 99.9% of the population so why dream when you can make your own - reality ?

This article is great for your PR, not to mention that it comes as recognition of your effort. The money, the fast cars and hot women are nothing compared to being quoted in the Official XBox Magazine. Kudos to that!

Being quoted in magazine is the best way to become famous in your country.But if you want to be known all over the world the you should contact a social profiles creation service office.In this way, you'll cross the borders very fast and everybody will know about your game.A social profile can make you famous but also rich.

To create a video game you have to be concerned about the data security, the game's software, its interface and the game graphics. As you can imagine is not easy, but all the effort is worth it.

You are probably aware that driving with under-inflated tires will negatively impact your car’s gas mileage. Since under-inflated tires cause drag, they ultimately require more horsepower.
