I consider myself a Renaissance man, sometimes I code, sometimes I game, sometimes I breakdance or even surf.  I'm Bboy360 you can check out my videos on youtube (over 140k views).  So sometimes I get paid to code, sometimes I get paid to model, or breakdancing.

As for minecraft, they do have Xbox live cheevos.  One reason I single Visual Studio out is because it's made by Microsoft.  If this was boreland C++ or something, I wouldn't care as much.  Microsoft has new windows 8 apps which fit very nicely into the Xbox live eco-system.  It's just crazyness if microsoft has another achievement system.
