Hey.
I am starting out with XNA, and would like to follow some sort of tutorial whilst i get to know stuff. The format doesnt bother me.

You may be about to reply asking why i cant use google etc... The reason i am asking is for recommendations for what you think is worth using, rather than finding any old tutorial that might only be half decent or whatever.


Many thnkas in advance! :)

Website layout is a bit of a mess but the tutorials are ok and should help you get started.

I know it's a book, but it's absolutely worth the money. The book is called [url="http://www.packtpub.com/xna-4-0-game-development-by-example-beginners-guide/book/rk/xna4_abr2/0910?utm_source=rk_xna4_abr2_0910&utm_medium=content&utm_campaign=ramsai"]XNA 4.0 Game Development by Example: Beginner's Guide[/url] . It offers a step by step introduction to XNA with a number of games explained to the reader in meticulous detail as to what everything is doing.

Here's a sample chapter: http://www.gamedev.net/page/resources/_/technical/directx-and-xna/using-animated-pieces-in-a-board-based-game-with-xna-40-r2884
