  • XNA does not include any framework for doing a UI.  There are several frameworks avaiable for free that let you define basic UI elements like panels and buttons and things, but generally speaking, you need to do it yourself.  Most game developers either have UI programmers on staff or they buy a commercial kit that usually isn't cheap.

  • XNA is the most up to date way of doing games.

    Directx is old hat now.

    Downlaod the xna sdk and you will find in Visual C# express or Visual studio a project for xna appears.

  • try this http://unity3d.com/ ... u can draw all of the landscape and characters very easily and then code in c# in visual studio for the programming part. Its fun and really easy to use. Check out for tutorials in youtube, and there are lots of books available too.
