    Visual Studio - worth getting?

    I'm just wondering. Visual Studio Standard costs something like $250 or so and it contains more than just Visual C++. What features does the paid version (standard edition, not the pro edition) have that the express edition does not? I intend on making games and later for commercial (for sale). Is it worth getting even though I would otherwise have little or no use for C# and whatever else Visual Studio Standard has?

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
