You need a 3D modeling package like Strata 3D (very cheap) or 3D Studio Max (very expensive). You need a good allround 2d artwork program for editing your texture maps ... like maybe Paint Shop Pro, and hey ... whats wrong with visual basic dude !

Most big-time game programming uses C or C++, but like Cybermike said... there's nothing wrong with using VB.  Do you already have a little knowledge of OpenGL or DirectX?
