As far as gaming is concerned, you should try reading "Killer Game Programming". It's pretty old but it is still very helpful.

Another site set up in almost the same way is www.mybringback.com. I only watched the first couple (as I had already gone through the whole new boston series) so I can't comment on the entirity of the tutorials, but from the first couple they had a very similar style to the new boston. My advice: take a look at the first couple of each, and see whose style you like better.
Another recomendation I would have is to pick up a book on design patterns at some point (I haven't seen any good tutorials on these, but I haven't really looked.) One thing I noticed in going through all the tutorials, and my other text book was that I found myself understanding Java, at least the syntax of it, but not having a clue what objects I needed, or how to structure them, etc. I felt reading up on design patterns (and generic Object Oriented principles) in conjunction with learning the language made things a lot easier to conceptualize and understand.
