Well, I downloaded Microsoft's XNA Game Studio but it apparently only works with Visual C#. I've only read on how to program in C++ and wanted to know if it's all that different? Should I need to look up tutorials before I start something?

C# looks a lot like C++, but there is some syntax differences that will catch you off guard, and things work a bit differently. There is an e-book that is written for people to transition to C# from C++.

This free on-line 267-page book is an introduction to C# and the Microsoft .NET Framework for programmers who have experience with C or C++.

Thanks. When I opened new project on Visual C# most everything seemed foreign to me. Reading the book makes it make more sense though. :D
