If you know a lot of VB.net then why not go with that? You'll probably be more productive sticking with a language you're comfortable with.

I would recommend Haskell personally.



Nah, just kidding, though nothing against Haskell. Its a hobbiest project and your just learning. There is alot to learn with game programming, even 2d game programming, so use whatever language gets in your way the least. In this case it sounds like VB.Net. If you have already transitioned from VB to VB.net there is no reason to ever look back!

Thats certainly one option. You could start here, not sure if there is one on this site for VB.net but google turns up plenty of answers.
