so i've got a stack of books here, the top three being: windows forms programming in c#, programming c#, and managed directx 9. i have the information i need to get me started in the direction i want to go. what i need now is to learn how to make plans for this stuff.
i went through all of the games i own for ps2, gamecube, pc, and gameboy and ranked them on a 5 star system. it turns out that zelda and metroid are my only 5 star games. more on metroid later.
