    I had no idea you could make games that incredible in XNA. I thought it would be Geometry Wars and Frogger caliber. But, dang, that looks amazing. /me suddenly becomes very interested in this whole XNA thing.

    During the launch event Mitch Walker, Program Manager - Xbox XNA, gave a fab demo. He showed just how easy it is to build stuff by pulling in existing bits like a sky dome, terrain and a fully animated tank! With a community of people sharing graphics and game components we are really in for a fun time. Nick Burton of Rare told us you can get to about 95% of the graphics capability in the Xbox 360 hardware via XNA. Awesome Smiley

    As a guy who does tons of graphic art and animation, and who plays waaay too many video games, I really wonder what I could do with XNA. This has got me seriously interested... Thanks Paul.

    You said it, Ted.  I totally dig those graphics.  I was particularly impressed with the extreme graphics bi-plane demo.  I've always wanted to make my own vintage flight simulator.

    Totally. I want to make a game now. I'm sure after I'm done people will be going "Gears of Who!?"

    But, seriously... It looks hella neat.

    Gears of Whasis?...No.  You're certainly talented enough to pull it off.  I'm not expecting a Gears of War from you just yet...but maybe in a few years.

    If you ever decide to tackle such a project, let me know...I'd love to help.

    On a similar note, my film class was analyzing some material on YouTube today and we had some fun watching your work.  Just thought I'd shoot you some props.  I can hold my own with Premiere...but I have yet to tackle After Effects.
