Python - The New Standard In Game Programming?

Well.... I know what you all will say (if you know anything about game development). You will say,  "Python is slow...." and "Python is lame...". But think about it. Is Python really that lame? I mean it is true that Python is slower and somewhat less portable than C or C++ or even Visual Basic, and that is a disadvantage at times. But the main thing that is holding Python back is the rumour about it being less powerful, which is an absolute lie because whatever Python is, it's not weak. Python is being rapidly updated and there are several graphics libraries for it which make it way easier to use than C, C++ , C# , V Basic or even Java. and those libraries are powerful; a popular example being 'Pygame'. Python also has way more built-ins. The only language more preferable for game programming than Python is C++, which is really difficult to master. Therefore Python is seriously awesome for Game Programming. Just give it a try!

GBA Game Programming with HAM

For a long time programming for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance has been difficult and has only been done by a few chosen professionals. But now, thanks to the HAM Cross Compiler, its gotten a lot easier. Even I can do it! For a Beginner's guide and simple tutorials go to , and for more advanced (and a thousand times more difficult) knowledge go to

So hurry up and get started!!!
Oh and if you get stuck somewhere feel free to consult me.
