As the launch of Xbox LIVE Community Games draws near I'm seeing tons of excitement building. The Internet is en Fuego with Creators creative juices. I'm so looking forward to seeing the games you guys are making! I really cannot wait! Of course, to this end as with every Communiqué, I share with you some of the cool game making stuff from the far corners of the world.
Our own Aaron "Bunny Harbinger" Stebner wrote a fantastic post about upgrading your XNA Game Studio 2.0 projects to the 3.0 beta. This is a great idea for anyone hoping to submit their game to launch with Xbox LIVE Community Games on November 19. It will make you that much more prepared to convert the project when Xbox LIVE Game Studio 3.0 becomes available on October 30!
Treasured MVP Nick Gravelyn shared some interesting opinions on the pricing of your Xbox LIVE Community Game on the Creators Club Forums. Check it out and share your own brain thoughts, too.
The IndieCade: International Festival of Independent Games is taking place October 10 through 17 in Bellevue, Washington. Joystiq has been running a feature all week on the 25 finalists featured at the festival. There are some amazing games and it is certainly worth checking out!
Finally, in the "Warming Your Icy Developer Heart" category -- A marriage proposal via Little Big Planet. I hope someone is already making a marriage proposal Community Game, too!
