I use GIMP for pre-processing effects, and that's about it...

I find GIMP's interface annoying and counterintuitive and I've never really used anything else, but hey, it's free.

Blender, Paint.NET, and Code::Blocks with MinGW for anything C++. And Construct, duh.
Edit: And seconding Everything as a search tool.

Here's a couple tools I've found useful:

[list:3cp25xyi]
[*:3cp25xyi]SFXR: The best tool for making your own 8bit sound effects for video games. Highly recommended, if 8bit sound effects are what you're after. And it's free.[/*:m:3cp25xyi]
[*:3cp25xyi]Audacity: Sound editing software. It's good, but not great. Then again, it's free. Oh, and open-source.[/*:m:3cp25xyi][/list:u:3cp25xyi]

Um, can't think of any others I'd recommend right now that haven't already been mentioned. I've heard some good things about Graphics Gale if you want a program dedicated to pixel art. I haven't tried it myself, though.

why do audio programs always seem so overwhelming to work with? it's like the steep learning curve is more of a wall than a curve ... anyone here want to teach me? :P

i use graphics gale for anything pixel art
maya for anything 3d
and nothing for audio ... :roll:

I use Cubase LE for audio (when I need an audio editor, which isn't that often). It's very good, getting close to professional audio standards. I can see how it would be tricky to learn as a beginner though.
