I do not think you necessarily need a book. Everything is on the web and often with attached source codes and examples.

In Topic: Best Programming Language For a Beat'em Up Game

XNA is just fine for this. I mean better than coding your own framework from scratch.

You'll have to code everything by yourself. So be prepared, because it's not an easy thing. But choose language
and learn how to program first.

I think you should do the audio. There's not many people who do that and they're always wanted.

But if you still want to start programming then, choose your programming language. Read some articles
or find some tutorials. The basics, just the basics. Then you can go deeper and introduce yourself into
game programming.

I don't think so. As a game programmer you have to have some knowledge how the game works and you have to create your own stuff. So if you want to be a professional game programmer, you should start learning some programming language (you choose).

In Topic: Talk to me about java in gaming

Yep, there's no console using java as programming language because of JVM. It would require huge amount of money to update JVM for consoles and big game companies will not invest in this. They rather make game in C or C++..

I personally think Win/Linux/Mac has enough users, gamers, who will play your game. So if you want to create games for consoles Java is not the solution and you should look for another programming language.
